  1. Okay, folks, here we go.  Deep breath...Chapter 9 of The Woman in the Statue is coming soon.  And by soon I mean I’m hoping for Wednesday.

    Bear in mind that, as I’ve been writing it, I’ve decided that the finale is going to be two parts, so the actual end of the story will be Chapter 10.  All titles in the chapter index have been updated to reflect this (Part x of 10, in other words).
     

    Now let’s all hope I don’t screw this up.

      Whooo! The ending of over 10 years in the thinking and months in the writing! What was the original length gonna be? a oneshot, four chapters or something? It has only grown ‘cos you’ve got more story to tell I’d say.

      I’m sure as heck looking forward to it. I see the whole thing as an under-viewed classic so far.

      Way back in the day, it was originally meant to be four chapters: the first would be Kevin (named Michael back in the day) finding Luzurial and some of the hurt/comfort stuff, the second was meant to be more development of the relationship between Kevin and Luzurial and Eparlegna’s return, the third was going to be the first confrontation with Eparlegna, the revelation of exactly what happened to Luzurial and Kevin and her sleeping together, and the fourth chapter would be the final confrontation with Eparlegna.

      That’s about right.  Part One went pretty much exactly as planned, but then I decided to do more with the PPD characters, so Part Two involved them more and Eparlegna’s return got pushed back to Part Three, then what was going to be a single chapter (Part Four) grew into the three chapter long App Theo Building arc.  Then I realized that Luzurial needed a lot more time to be emotionally ready for physical intimacy, so that meant moving that to near the end of a separate chapter (Part Seven), and then the final confrontation with Eparlegna became a large scale battle involving the PPD characters, so that meant Part Eight became a thing.

      Finally, most recently, I realized it would undersell the threat to have the characters just blitz their way to the top of the tower to face Eparlegna, so entering the tower and making their way up became Part Nine and Luzurial’s actual final battle with Eparlegna and the denouement became Part Ten.

      Fair warning: this may end up posted Thursday instead of Wednesday, since a friend I hadn’t seen since October wanted to go to the movies today (we went to see 1917), so I lost a lot of writing time.  If I can’t get it posted Wednesday, as I said, expect it some time the next day.
