Some of you may be wondering, “Hey Shon, where the fuck is the latest Vaquel story? You haven’t posted one since February! Are you done with Vaquel? Is the twenty year mission ending like this? How much do you suck?”
Well reader, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that back in December when I decided it would be cool to write a year long theme about a hedonistic society that was murdered by their neighbors for bullshit reasons, I didn’t realize that 2022 would be the year that Russia decided to murder their neighbors for bullshit reasons. Reading about war crimes and atrocities sort of took the fun out of whatever I felt the appeal of this theme would be.
At the same time, I was also deep into my next Choose-your-own-erotica book which is coming along quite well. I crossed into an obsession phase where I wanted to spend 98% of my time writing that book. That book became an escape from the real world and a welcome one at that.
The good news is, I am past that obsession point and looking to return to other projects. I have made peace with my similarities to real world tragedy and think I have a way forward in my Vaquel stories. The plan is that once I get rolling, to publish two Vaquel stories a month until I catch up and can go back to once-a-month publishing.
Thank you for your patience and rest assured that Vaquel will be back exploring and fucking real soon.
