Quick status report: I'm not dead, nor being lazy, nor taking another break.
The direction you guys collectively voted on threw an unexpected wrench into my mix. Let me try and explain this without it turning into too much of a ramble.
I've mentioned many times now that I have wanted to go back and do some mild rewriting and an overall quality control pass on the early material. Back when I first started BuggyCYOA, I was basically a writefag coming out of retirement, finding my own style for writing a CYOA, which was something I had never done before.
And it shows, especially in the first chapter or two; it's just rough stuff compared to what I would want it to be now.
Here's the thing. The next update touches on things that were brought up in the beginning; the very material that needs another writing pass.
tl;dr the more time passes and new content is made, the harder it's going to be to make sure everything remains consistent and no accidental time paradoxes are opened when I do go back on rework prior writings. Hopefully that makes sense.
So yeah, I'm going to try and get the next update out tomorrow, but after that I'm going to be taking a few days to go back and rewrite the first chapter, in order to both clean up the writing as a whole and to reestablish two important things in a more intuitive way. After that, I'll do a quick scan through everything up until the current time to make sure its still cohesive, and to correct any minor things or typos that I spot.
Beyond that, my plate is just really full at the moment. Right now I'm working on...
1: New BuggyCYOA updates
2: BuggyCYOA early chapter rewrites
3: New banner ads for this site
4: An MS-Paint Masterpiece™ for Auto and his story with Midnight
And that's not considering my RL work.
Once I work through those things, it'll be much easier for me to get faster updates going again.
Until then, please bear with me as I get things sorted out. The story will be better off for it, hopefully.
