I posted the first chapter of my first serial, The Dreams, to this blog four years ago today. A lot has changed since then, but a lot has stayed the same.
Let’s look at some stats!
Since August 27, 2015, I have:
- Posted 155 chapters
- Completed one serial (The Dreams)
- Started a second serial (Inbetween)
- Written 568,214 words
- Changed my blog’s design once
- Bought my own domain name
It hasn’t always been easy or fun. There have been periods of major self-doubt. I almost quit a few times. Writing is hard and putting my work online where it can be a full time job to even attract a handful of views can be extremely discouraging. However, I think I made the right choice.
Writing this way works for me. It keeps me on track. I’ve always loved finding stories online and checking in to devour new updates. Now I get to contribute to internet’s library. Some days I check my viewer stats and see someone has read through 30+ chapters in a day. Those moments make me think I must be doing something right.
Where do I plan to go from here? I intend to keep writing! A complete rewrite of The Dreams is coming once I’ve completed it. A brand new serial is in the works too. I think this next year will be particularly exciting with a mix of familiar content and brand new ideas.
I want to keep improving. I’d love to hear from you. What’s working? What isn’t? Is there something you’d love to see more of from me?
