Hi. It's been a while since last last update, but there were some things I felt necessary to say.
For starters, I wanted to explain the less frequent updates.
Despite the time between each new update being longer, I have been translating the same amount of pages as promised in the Patreon goals. The extended times are a product of the fact that every update is slightly longer than most AFP updates, because Tengu is not as easy to split into small parts. No chapter/part/scene (since there are no real chapters) will be split into more than 3 parts. Also I don't update on the same day as I finish a part, as sometimes an update may have taken me more than a week in reality, but my rule is no more than a week between updates, so I usually have a bit of a reserve in case there's a long part further along or something really unexpected happens and I really can't manage to translate that day.
Moreover, with school, I don't really have the time to throw in extra pages as I could before that as all double-updates have been a product of me going over the set amount of pages. I'm still aiming for at least one double update every month, and not just available to higher tier Patrons.
My current goal for extra chapters available to each tier looks like this:
(2/2) 1$ - (4/5) 3$ - (6/9) 5$ - (8/14) 10$ - (10/20) 15$ - (13/27) 20$
Currently, according to my vague calculations Tengu will be finished before the end of November, although it can end up delayed if Patreon remains below the goal as I do rely on the money for some of my expenses and I'd need to find other avenues to compensate for that, which means even less time to translate as I'll be falling to 2 pages a day.
As for my original novel, that unluckily fell by the wayside with me re-starting school, and I quite honestly cannot give an answer to when it will be finished, though it will be. I like it too much. I have the few remaining chapters planned out, but writer's block is a cruel mistress. But the approach of NaNoWriMo has put the idea in my head that I might put it out as as a goal to finish the story during that month.
Anyways, I thinks that's about all? I might have missed smth, and if I do it might end up appearing post scriptum.
Thanks to everyone whose been supporting me, past and present, as I certainly don't know if I would have managed to get this far without you. I don't want to stop doing this, I'm far too deep now, and there's still so much silly amazing BL left in world I'd like to translate~ It's annoying, but fun and rewarding when you realize you're currently working on your 4th novel...
So, see you guys soon.
