I have a job! Turns out I'm able to work at Kroger's after all. I completed my first day of training today and will begin work proper soon enough. After a year and a half of lazing about, I'm finally contributing to society. The reason I'm telling you guys this is because I foresee it impacting my ability to write, for reasons that should be obvious. Although I think I might have a way around it, I don't want to say anything just yet. Here's hoping that I'll still be able to post stuff whenever I can.

In Marvelous Island news, a whim struck me so I Googled the number of words in the first Harry Potter book. 75,000 words. The number of words in Marvelous Island, not counting story ideas and a makeshift glossary? 68,000 words. Hell yeah. And you know what? If you follow the formula of intro, rising action, climax, falling action, and conclusion, I think this last chapter was the most narratively appropriate place to end a book. But don't you guys start worrying because we're not remotely done with this baby yet. Hints have been dropped for a bunch of things that'll come into play later. But at the moment, I think I might have enough to send to a publisher. If that ever came to be, it would mean the end of Marvelous Island on Deviantart. I'd put all but the first two chapters into storage to act as a sort of teaser. On the other hand, I kinda miss the direct feed back and you guys catching all my mistakes.

Speaking of publishing, I've been thinking of getting a Patreon. What do you guys think?

Thoughts on any of this would be appreciated.

I was just thinking about it last night and I certainly hope so. However, don't expect anything for a while. I'm sick and doing job interviews. Worse, I might finally succeed in the latter so that means less writing all around.
