Finally! Finally, I have completed the latest story and published in on the internet. You can find it here
This now makes nine stories in all. I did it! Hip, hip, hooray!
What did I do? I managed to make and publish an entire anthology. Or roughly thereof. What does this mean for the future? Maybe nothing, maybe everything. I will go all the way. Will you follow this stupid person?
What I know for certain is that I have another story in me that I will start writing as soon as I have the time. Not today, and probably not tomorrow. But next week, I will make every effort to get out a new story for your amusement.
As always, Enjoy!
I finally have something wonderful to tell all of you. I have finally finished the rough draft of the latest story. Now all I have to do is transcribe and give it a thorough edit. I cannot tell you when it will go live, but I will be working on it daily, a little bit at a time. In fact, I will be working on the story and this site a lot more than I have been up until now.
In the meantime, take a gander at this little jewel:
That was simply awesome, wasn't it?
It has been entirely too long since I reported on this page these pages. And once again I have no good news. The Holiday Season has been real busy. In fact, this is the first time I've had to write to you in weeks. I'm sorry, but the next story will not be up until February of next year, at the earliest. I sincerely apologize.
As always, Enjoy.
I have nothing but excuses for all of you. At work, we have started a 12 hour shift. I am now working from 5pm-5am. And once go home, I fall right to sleep, waking up only at noon. After that, my daily routine leaves me very little time to do anything but get ready for work.
However, by writing this out, I have come to the revitalization that there is something I can do. And I will try. I have every intention of churning out stories of Ubernorden. It just might suffer from major schedule slips.
As Always, Enjoy.
Are hope you are having a happy Columbus Day. Here in the Berkshires, it is a lovey, sunny day. Also, I have no work today. Hooray!
As for the story, I am sorry to say that I have not worked on it much since my last update. (Probably due to lack of motivation due to a lack of fan base, maybe) But I have made a Columbus Day "resolution." I will now try to put at least one hour a day on working on the next story. Hopefully this will allow me to have it up before Christmas, hopefully.
As always, Enjoy.
Well, it's been a month since I last spoke to you, and I have come to an important realization. I am not going to be able to work on my Tales of Ubernorden as well as I would like, and as you deserve. My work schedule, with life thrown in, makes it impossible to write on a regular basis. I can write occasionally, but in often enough.
As such, I will no longer promise a due date for publishing the next story. As well as the intermittent writing, it is becoming longer than I realized, and I do not know when I will be finished. All I can do is promise to finish it and continue on with other Tales of Ubernorden.
I am truly sorry for all of this.
As Always, Enjoy.
I have been really neglectful of you and this site for longer than I should have. For that, I am truly sorry.
The only explanation I have is that I am extremely busy at my day job. We are currently undergoing mandatory overtime, thus I have little time to devote to this site and the Tales of Ubernorden. However, progress is steady on the next story, though it is proceeding at a snail's pace. I have not given up, now or ever.
Also, I realized that I might not have updated the Databook after the latest story. I will look into that and rectify it
I recently went to see the new superhero film, Man of Steel, in theaters. And it was AWESOME.
I went in to the theater a little apprehensive. I had seen Superman Returns, and I, like many other, just did not like it all that much. As such, I was worried that Man of Steel would be just like that. I worried that no one knew how to tell a good Superman story.
I was wrong. The whole movie was terrific. As with most superhero movies these days, it was an origin story. And they used it well. Throughout the film, we see Clark "Superman" Kent wandering the world, trying to find his place in it. And in typical Superman fashion, it take a world threatening disaster to get him off his duff. That disaster was a visit from in lost homeworld in the form of Zod (*spoiler: He never says "Kneel before Zod" /sad/). From there on, Superman is seen before us in all of his awesomeness.
About the only problem I had with the movie was the pacing. It was rather fast paced, leaving little room for the audience absorb the events they had just scene.* Regardless, this is a must see film for anyone who is a superhero fan
As Always, Enjoy.
Happy Independence Day everyone! On this day in history the American Declaration of Independence was signed by many delegates to first Continental Congress, thus ushering in Independence and Liberty for all Americans. USA! USA!
Well after a little bit of soul searching, I have come to a critical decision. As some of you may know, I have mentioned that there is a specific story in the Tales of Ubernorden from which all the Tales of Ubernorden revolve around. I have also mentioned that I wish to tell that story in the future. I am here to tell you that I no longer wish to tell that story. I will continue writing Tales of Ubernorden, but that story is no longer possible.
For starters, in the way I envisioned the story progressing it was becoming quite stale. Furthermore, since I have changed the geography and the political situation of Ubernorden many of the plot points of that story no longer make as much sense as they used to. And lastly, I have envisioned a kind-of sequel that takes place in the future of that story that possesses many of the same plot points, but is far more dynamic and features a neat little 'pull' that is classic Ubernorden. This means that it will be more enjoyable for me to write and ultimately for you to read.
As of yet, I have not yet figured out if this discarded story will be used as back story as is or in a similar yet different form for the new story. But we are a long way off from that story being written.
