I am a month ahead on updates for Artemis.

    Right now I can either write one of the most emotionally taxing and sensually shocking chapters thus far (borderline porn that actually stays in the book)

    Or I can play lego Lord of the Rings.


    Artemis - Chapter Seven: Lucid Dreams and Reality

    I’m ten chapters ahead of the update schedule, have an extra <3


    The next three weeks worth of updates are currently on wattpad, just waiting on the schedule. Six will go up Monday, maybe Tuedsay.

    As much as I love getting asks and comments on Artemis, can we divert them to my writing tumblr for posterity?

    Dear life, I win.

    [Kamen] “This is not okay, Rei.”

    [Rei] “What, you want to dart through the shadows like a fucking vagabond all the way home?” [narrows eyes at Kamen, its exactly what he HAS done for the past two months or so] “That’s suspicious. He expects that, but he doesn’t expect this.”

    [Kamen] “I’m not happy about this.”

    [Nancy] “I’m okay with it.”

    [Rei] “Hell, me too. Besides, I know some asshole who has like…five of these things.”

    [Kamen glares at Rei]

    • Jessica Chambers: and that is why i was crying all night
