Hey gang, especially you lovely email and RSS subscribers.
So, as I mentioned last week, this is my first and only gap week in which you’ll be receiving no original material at all. Don’t think I’m getting lazy in my old age (I recently turned 32, which I think equates to about 12 for my mental age) I’m hard at work producing the last few episodes so that we can go weekly from next Monday.
I can tell you here that the final episode will be 46, so you’ll have five instalments of weekly episode before the conclusion, one of which (the one I’m working on currently) is a five page epic, so I hope you understand why I’m taking this gap week, I really wouldn’t want to break the schedule when the story starts hitting pace.
As always, thanks for your ongoing interest and, in this case, patience. I really hope you’re enjoying where the story’s going, and further hope that you stick with us until the bitter (sweet?) end.
I say “ending”, dear readers, because this is the very last ‘Other Tales From St. Shawshank’s’ of the series, as next week we’ll be business as usual with Episode 40, followed by our first and only ever gap week so I can get some extra time before the series goes weekly with Episode 41 (one episode ahead of my previously mentioned schedule), and let me tell you, folks, there’s some epic stuff ahead.
I started ‘Other Tales…’ as a way of filling out the bonus material week with material that I could throw together much faster than the main story, but I ended up having great fun with it, and I think that shows. It became a place I could explore the personalities of our lead players out of the confines of the set narrative, which was great, but even better was that it became a place for much needed levity when the story proper took a turn for the serious.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these shenanigans as much as I’ve enjoyed putting them together, who knows, maybe when the series is done, I’ll knock out a few more.
