I know this doesn’t affect many of you, but I’m gonna ramble a bit anyway, so please forgive me.
A quick check of the topic will reveal that Bioni-Lords Book 3: Kako has not been updated in months now. I can also confirm that, in that time, I have done little to no writing for the story, and I feel like I should address this. As I’ve mentioned in a previous entry, I got to thinking more about Bioni-Lords and how I was handling, well…everything…and I became extremely frustrated with it. Frustration led to a lack of motivation, which was only worsened by a tighter schedule between school and work and a complete lack of motivation to do anything at all. I kept trying, kept failing, kept getting more frustrated as I thought about it, and, to be honest, I’m just not convinced Bioni-Lords is worth it. The most logical thing to do is put an end to it.
That being said…I’m sentimental.
My next thought was to declare an “indefinite hiatus”, which is basically the same thing. I typed up a farewell entry and began working on another entry detailing all the plans I had for the rest of Book 3, but as I did so…well, I got invested. I couldn’t quite bring myself to end Bioni-Lords, but I need to seriously improve it if it’s going to stay.
As I mentioned in the blog entry where I first went on about my frustrations, one of my worst ideas was to give tragic ends to several characters for completely stupid reasons. I do not want this to happen. I wondered if maybe working in some weird extra twist would be better, but it made things more confusing, and there were still massive underlying issues. So to karz with it. I already have The Retcon established, so I’ll just expand that to include a reason for why these characters aren’t present in Books 1 and 2. That should make it at least less
confusing. Fixing these issues is more important than sticking with a canon I decided on when I was an uninformed preteen, you know?
Of course, I still want it to be sad, so there will still be some death. Don’t let your guard down yet, mwa-ha-ha…
Although the eventual Book 4 is still looking like a mess but that’s something I can address later okay moving on.
get back to writing Bioni-Lords. I still have motivation/time concerns, but I’m going to deal with those best I can and get you the next chapter as soon as I can. (That being said, I don’t feel confident with giving a release date, ahaha…)
Time to get to work…
