An update to the whole 'no updates' thing.

So… an elephant is in the room.

November is NaNoWriMo in which I destroy my life in a bid to write a 50,000 word novella.

December 25th I release Up, Down, Left, Right – Volume Three.

There is clearly no time to finish Tears In Rain. It’s a project I’ve had for over a year now an it’s just sitting there, wasting away, there is honestly only one thing for it. Delay. I said “2011″ but that seriously isn’t going to happen with everything going on. I’ve had a look at my schooling stuff such as exams and preparations and other commitments and it looks like I won’t be able to kick this puppy until some time into 2012. By ‘some time’ I mean a considerable amount of time. Except, thematically, I think the release date will feel right – June 25th - the 30th anniversary of Blade Runner. This means I’ll have to go back and edit it to death but I think I can do it, I’m going to start it tomorrow in fact (all the retconning) and it’ll all be alright.

2012 itself is crammed full of projects, prospects and opportunities for me to get into. Who knows if I’ll survive 2012, then again, I doubt any of us will with it being the “end of the world” and all. On the list of stuff I’m doing next year: Up, Down, Left, Right – Volume Four, another ‘film book’, NaNoWriMo 2012. I shan’t be releasing two volumes of Up, Down, Left, Right in 2012 like I’ve done in 2011, mostly because I won’t have the time, but also because I want Volume Five to be the final volume. It’ll be my teenage legacy and I want it done justice.

I don’t want to plan out 2013 but I doubt I’ll be doing anything massive given I’ll have a Summer of nothing before university. Shit. University.

So, I’m sorry and it hurts to delay anything (honestly) because it makes me sick inside for some odd reason.

2011:

NaNoWriMo 2011 Project – ??? November

Up, Down, Left, Right: Volume Three - 25th December

2012

Tears In Rain: An Exploration of the Historical, Political and Cultural Significance of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (1982) – June 25th

‘Film Book #2′ - August 31st

Critique Corners?

I’ve been too busy with all of the above to get to any critiquing but I will be diving into some Arkham City cornering this weekend coming up. I have no idea what to do for film critique corner, I haven’t seen anything worth commenting on, which is a shame. I’ll try and get something by the end of next week, sorry for all of this, I have been extraordinarily busy.

I think that’s everything I need to say.

Love you all.

About Nathsiesone of us since 4:57 PM on 02.26.2010

I'm Nathan Hardisty, an author, ex-editorial writer for Platformnation.com, ex-games writer at Screenjabber. I now write for a variety of sites on the internet while still updating both my DTOID blog and my regular blog, which can be found below.

I am currently writing for Flixist.com

Also I'm incredibly pretentious about video-games so beware. I might just hipsterblow your minds.
