    How far do you think you have to go Delta before you can start editing? Not too far I hope. 

    As for me, Chapter 328 is now finished thank Hircine. Now it's chapter 329 Back to Basics.... Word count 0 of 4995.....

    I'll see if I can squeeze out 3 - 5k words by Friday, Sunday at worst. Then it's editing and upload to the Discord.

    Looking forwards to it Delta. Hasir has posted a new chapter. Willhave a read over the next few days. A quick reminder to everyone. Tell us howl far you are getting in your stories. Any problems you are having, frustrations or even good writing binges. Writing can and often is stressful as well as relaxing.... weird but true....

    That is true Sotek, I read more of your story up to Out with the Old. I  listen to music or audiobooks while writing. They both help me become a better writer and keep my mind on task so it doesn't wander when I write. I came up with an interesting conflict in the chapter I am working on; it involeves Hircine, Molag Bal, the hist tree connection that the Argonians require to keep living, the pneunemic eggs that lie within the hist and one of the dunmer slavers. I feel like I can write my story for days on end if I had long stretches of time to myself. I find stories I write more interesting if I place myself in the pages (assuming that makes any sense.)

    Okay so Sotek howled at me..


    The Imperial Auditor has been on hiatus for a couple of years due to life, work then lockdown. I started getting an urge to get back to it after dabbling in Cyrodiil during Midyear Mayhem in ESO, it was good to be able to get a feel for the land as this is where one of my chapters is based.


    Unfortunately/fortunately, I had also recently taken my main back to Sommerset to finish the main quest, so far my main has been fine with all of the main questline, and the Covenant main questline, everything is as the developers intended. But not so with Sommerset, she has taken offence at a Daedric Prince's actions, and so started on Friday evening, a work of personal indulgence that I'm not even sure I would post anonymously on lol After saving the document yesterday I had about 2,800 words, the story will influence Auguris’s story in Skyrim, it has certainly rewritten his family tree, and created a backstory for my main which I never intended.


    Hoping this will lead getting TIA chapter 8 (I think?) out this year.


    Divines save me from an over active imagination, once it starts there's no telling where it will go lol

    Awwwooo Meli 

    For me, this is one of the golden moments of writing, when unintended backstories and new plots form which the writer never even suspected they would be writing. Its when the characters start to come alive and breathe their own lives and impacts upon the events and plots. So much of U.o.t.W. is due to Aela, Sotek and teh others deoing things I never initialy intended. Things happen...


    Great to see you working on your story again, looking forwards to your next chapter.


    As for ESO, I've been stuck for a while as to the next sequence of events for the Companions but thanks to a visit to Shor's Stone and an injured man who lost his cart, things are falling into place. I now have a definite path set for the next stage of the Companions journey. I even have a way to add the Wayshrines to the Companions, aiding in their travels. (Also have Sotek giving his opinion on how they work. Pleased with it so far.)

    I finaly have an (in order) to do list.

    1 Aela/Red clash with Vampires

    2 Companions visit Morrowind, introducing Sotek's family.

    3 Neesha (Small Argonian girl) is found by Farkas and Vilkas

    4 Stormcloak rebelion finished

    5 Sotek Dragonbourn clash... ( Few surprises there).

    6 Aela's Ma rescued... ( Bet some people are wondering what I mean by that).

    7 Companions start journey to end up at Davon's Watch. 

    8 Companions kill giant crab and realisation that they aren't the be all and end all pack hits home.

    (This is keystone in leveling the playing field between Sotek, Aela, Kodlak and the Whelps. No matter howl good Sotek, SCarface, Aela, Red, Vilkas and Farkas think they are, they aren't going to be able to defeat world bosses without help. Crab perfect opputunity to bring everyone down to the level where they just cannot go off without serious thoughts or repocussions).

    And I still have lots of chapters to edit before I can start all of this......

            Lots to do still....

    Looking like this weekend will be full on Meridia research, good but bad, but obsessive Daedric prince. I did quite a bit of research on Trinimac when I was putting my Orsimer together. Current story is now well in excess of 7,000 words, and I get extra time to write this weekend :-)


    [edited as I forgot a couple of thousand lol]

    Well this week is a total wipeout. Just cannot manage to write a single word when I am on the late shift at work. Will try to write 500 words guring weekend. Been playing ESO and made a few chars for story. Got Sotek, Kodlak, Farkas, Vilkas and Veezara. Next goal is to get them to l15 then have a play with how their gear looks. Aela is helping. She has made Aela and Tilma. Will make Ebony, Kul-et, and Rikke... later we will see about other characters for the ESO world regarding UotW.
