The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #6

Posted on October 15, 2014 by Skyler

So it’s been a month since my last update, and while a lot has been happening in my life, unfortunately I haven’t been able to make a lot of progress on Quarantine. At this point, I simply will not have enough time to release the full ebook by Halloween, but I will be able to release the first part of the kinetic novel.

I’m learning as I go with setting deadlines for myself, and I’m finding that I tend to need more time than I think. It’s easy to have wishful thinking, and I’m working on being more realistic about my deadlines.

As I’ve said before, my intention is for The Outbreak series to be a trilogy, and the first book will contain Day Zero, First Light, Quarantine, and some extra content, and of course the next two books will continue where the story left off.

I’ve found that it’s easiest for me to write for visual mediums like comics and films, so writing novels is more difficult for me, since there are no pictures to portray the scenes.

Of course this is just a crutch, and I can certainly do it, I just need more time and practice. Writing fiction is quite the endeavor.

So that’s all for now. Since I already have The Outbreak: Quarantine Part 1 written I just need to do the art, music, and sound effects, and it will be released on Halloween on this website, although I will not be releasing it elsewhere until the entire chapter is complete.

See you on the 31st!
