Author’s Note

Sabado has its second official release FAM. I am so excited to finally have another real post on here. Unfortunately, it is not the final draft. It is the second draft for a reason. It still feels like there is more work that can be done but I wanted to give you, the reader something to read. If you haven’t read the original story yet, now is a good time to read it. It is definitely better than the previous version of it. There are less errors and the grammar and format is way better. I do hope you enjoy … Continue reading Author’s Note

An apology

To my esteemed readers, I have had issues blogging consistently recently and for that I do apologize. I have had ideas mulling around in my head and have been dealing with a bout of depression. I will try to blog more consistently so that I have a good record approaching Halloween. My goal is to have at least three of my Muertos stories complete by then. Or at least, I would like to have drafts of all three. Understand that for everything I blog on here, I am always trying to improve whatever I post. Cheers and have a spooky … Continue reading An apology

Release Schedule: Muertos

Because Halloween is fast approaching I feel that it is only right that I give the readers on wordpress a schedule on what will be uploaded in the following weeks. Currently I am working on the second draft of my longest Muertos story, in order to improve the overall quality and strengthening the characters. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of giving me feedback on my stories. Your feedback is as important as my own critical editing and I want your help making my stories better. I believe a group process might be able to give my writing its best … Continue reading Release Schedule: Muertos

Author’s thoughts

Hey fam, this is your author Shade here reflecting on my first major short story I’ve completed on here. The Dias de los Muertos series of short stories is something I’ve been dreaming up for a while but this first story is very spicy. In the world today, the crisis facing young men is quite staggering. However, many do not take a path that I personally would. The success of right wing crazies around the world is partially due to alienation and the inability of young men to make their way in the world. I sympathize as, I too have … Continue reading Author’s thoughts

In case it wasn’t obvious the story is in its third act. I plan to upload it by the end of the week. The final part will just be part of … Continue reading Dias de los muertos: Sabado Update
