Part of me wants to write a post about how Moongate Studios is responding to the COVID crisis, because I think it’s important that no matter how little we can do to respond, it’s still important to issue some sort of statement. We may have gotten used to seeing it in all of our emails and in social media about how companies are responding. Here at Moongate Studios, well, let’s be frank. It’s just me and I’m working from home and taking the normal precautions that everyone else is too. I will state that this has impacted my ability to produce, meaning that I am now behind on projects. So now I will begin my project updates.
I just finished the last page for the first arch this past weekend. Once it goes live in July I’ve announced a hiatus until I get the next script completed (and the next few pages done). I’m hoping that it won’t take long to get it back up and running though, but I want to prepare for just in case.
I am working on finishing up the story arch for Tedieval and hope to have everything ready to go by the end of the month, the pages should continue until June and then it will be on hiatus while I work on the script for the next arch.
In addition to working on scripts for continuing projects I am in the middle of live-editing Talisman of the Winds as well as the very slow progress of translating Avantir. I’ll be talking more in depth on those projects on the JP Wagner website So feel free to swing by there.
As we head into February, it’s long past due that I update this website! I don’t really do New Year’s Resolutions but I do set goals, my goal for this year is to do more regular updates on all of the sites.
I’m working on a bunch of editing projects at the moment, so I will be giving more updates on the process, but I’m going to start posting more interesting things like Character Sketches, facts and tidbits about the worlds that I am exploring.
So basically I’ll be attempting to make sure everything is updated at the very least once a month but we’ll see how it goes.
As we are wrapping up Fall and heading into winter soon, it’s time for another update.
I’ve been bouncing back and forth a lot this year as I am still trying to get used to shifting between writing, editing and comic creating. It’s been a slow go, but I now have a plan on what I am working on.
These are the easy area because I have been self-publishing them for so long. However, I have been missing a lot of opportunities here. I have just finished up the comic pages for this year’s webpages. In November I will be working on the pages for the first part of 2019 and then settling into some script writing as well as adapting some scripts from novels. Then in December (which I have affectionately nicknamed Digital December) I will be formatting my comics for some new digital and print markets! I’ll let you all know about this as I finish them.
I’m currently working on an outline for The Sword of Justice as part of structurally editing the manuscript. As of this writing, I am currently a quarter of the way through. Once I’m done outlining I will be sending it off to my editor and then it’s going to go on the backburner for a couple of months while I work on scripts and editing other pieces. In my pie in the sky hopes, I would like to be able to release an anthology of short stories. Although, realistically, it likely won’t be ready until Spring of 2020.
So that’s pretty much what I’ve been working on and what I will be working on until the end of the year. I hope to be able to give you another update soon as I head into winter, talk to you soon!
