So on the heels of a few really good weeks of writing, I’m previewing our schedule for the next six months. At the moment, my priority is to finish writing The Best Thing and Damaged, Season Two by the end of October. I’m on good track to do that — I have about four episodes left to write for Damaged and five chapters for TBT. I’ve split the work and scheduled it in order to have ample time to work on it.

Damaged will feature fifteen episodes in all, nine of which have been posted already. I will continue posting Season Two until Thanksgiving weekend — Friday, November 27. At time, that will go on a hiatus until Season Three is posted in March 2016.

In order to give myself and Cora a bit of a vacation for the holidays and let her finish her schoolwork, no brand-new work will be posted during December. However, I’ll be posting Fiction Graveyard stories instead. Depending on how many I can get edited, I’ll do two updates a week.

The Best Thing will return for a final run of episodes in January 2016. Bittersweet, which I will be writing during NaNoWriMo in November, then editing and revising in December and January, will be posted in February.

So starting in January, you’ll be getting about a run of five months of original content, posted probably twice a week. What I’ll be posting in the summer depends on how well I stick to my schedule.

So to recap –here’s the breakdown:

October & November – Damaged, Season Two
December – Fiction Graveyard, Ebooks, Site projects
January – The Best Thing
February – Bittersweet
March – Damaged, Season Three

I’ll be back this weekend with an update — a new featured story, an update to The Best Thing in progress ebook, etc, as well Damaged, Episode 2.10 on Friday!

I am beside myself with the amount of happiness I feel right now. If you’ve been following Crimson Glass since we first moved to this address and converted to WordPress, you know I’ve been painstakingly try to gather all the stories I’ve ever written since 2002. Between rewrites, computer crashes, and board bannings, I lost many of them. Thanks to some readers and the Internet Wayback Machine, I managed to find around fifteen or so of them. I’ve been putting old versions and abandoned stories in the Fiction Graveyard as well, though that’s been on hiatus due to editing issues.

Today, I connected with Joanna, one of the old crew at The Canvas. I had been missing four particular stories — ones with chapters and written in 2002 and 2003. Joanna saved two of them: No One Else Sees Me and The Ends of the Earth. I haven’t even read them since 2003 as both were lost in a computer crash that summer.

I’m going to go through them and edit them, and hopefully re-add them to the site at some point in the next few weeks. I can’t even…I am so happy right now. Thank you, Joanna!

Also, Damaged has been updated. It’s a good day and I can’t seem to stop smiling 🙂

Hey! Good news. I’m declaring my hiatus over. Mostly. I’m updating Damaged against, starting tonight. And The Best Thing will return momentarily. I hit a snag with my last chapter and have to restructure pieces of it. However, once I start the final four chapters, I have a feeling they’re just going to pour out because they’re so closely interlinked, I won’t be able to stop.

Hopefully, The Best Thing will back and completed by the end of November. For now, enjoy Damaged!
