"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." ~Albert Camus
Thirteen chapters done, currently in the middle of Ch. 14, The Wayward Astronomer is really starting to take shape now. I know I'm not a fast writer by most standards, but this whole slow burn has really helped things come together naturally for me over time. I am genuinely excited and motivated to finish this story, and I feel like I'm at the point now where I know how all the events will end up shaping together to reach the epic planned conclusion. 

It is doubtful that I will get any faster than a new chapter every few weeks or so, but the important thing is, I really do feel like I know what I'm doing now. Creating this story has been a fun journey so far, but more importantly, it's teaching me a lot about myself. I'm a happier man than I was before I started this project. Having such excellent feedback from my readers has helped me realize that this is more than just something I'm doing for fun; it's something that I can share with the world. It sounds corny, but storytelling is truly powerful, man. I can't explain it. It's amazing. 

There is a good chance that I might end up in complete and total Star Citizen land once the Dogfighting module is released soon, but I'll find time to keep moving things forward. I expect that once I get within the final 5 chapters or so, they will all be completed very quickly. God it would be great to finish everything before the end of the year, or at least be close to the end. 

I want to give a big thank you to the people who continue to read my work, and especially the few who have gone through the trouble to send me gifts or wish me happy birthday recently. It really does mean a lot to me. You guys are the best. 

I guess that's all for now; just a quick little update. Thanks for everything everybody!

P.S. If anyone would like to volunteer, or can recommend, a good artist I could commission for Chapter 7 artwork, drop me a line! I love finding new people to bring life to these events.

Okay I just went to your website thats linked to your Deviant ID and I found a few interesting things... One: the plane is called a Lynx... you can guess why I noticed it. I just thought that was funny. Two: the Lynx is in your Deviant ID picture. I think that is really cool. Three: I see that the company that owns the website are hiring... is it entry level or experienced level hiring? Im looking for a new job, so I have been poking around.

By the way, I have a few sketches for chapter 8 of Wayward Astronomer. I have not posted them yet, Because I do not know where to go from this point on...

Sorry, I was slow to respond to your note. Feel free to post the sketches to your stash on dA (or some other site) and then you can link me to the sketches in a note. I'll take a look and give you my thoughts!

We are hiring at XCOR for several different positions, so read the job descriptions to get an idea for what each one requires. Most of them are technical jobs (engineering, machining, or technician)
