I’m just about done with the outline for issue 18 of Samael. Most of the major story threads are already wrapped up, and after this, there are only a few more events for me to outline. I can end the story at a natural stopping point, even though it’s a bit of a cliffhanger.
This will be “part 1” of Samael. I always had the intention of writing part 2 (and maybe part 3), but as of right now, I think I need to stop working on it and move on to something else. I don’t have enough ideas to fill even one issue of an outline, and I’m a little too burnt out on this story to want to take the time to come up ways to continue the plot.
So my plans for the next couple of months are:
- Finish the Samael part 1 outline. This should happen sometime in late June or early July.
- Write and edit the rest of Samael. That will probably take the rest of the year.
- Post the chapters here like I did with The Land of Two Moons and The Book of Immortality.
After that’s all done, I can think about whether or not I want to write part 2. Right now it’s looking more like a “no”, but that might be different once I’ve had a few more months to think things over.
