Believe it or not, there’s a new chapter of Beyond Ruin!
This one is about a Queen discovering a location rich with magic and going in to investigate. Since we need conflict, that turns out to not be a great idea. It’s written a little more vaguely that the previous chapters, for reasons explained in the chapter itself, plus it sort of follows the last one’s idea of introducing new magical phenomena. I think that’s something I’d like to focus more on: not just establishing the Queens, but also building the world around them by having them discover it.
…Now if I can just keep myself motivated. I don’t want to give up on this idea, but I can’t help but feel a little discouraged when I realize I’ve been “working” on it for 3-4 years now with what feels like not a lot to show for it. Guess I’ve just got to keep trying!
