The Permanent Man Season 2 Update

It's hard to believe that a year ago around this time, I had written all 12 episodes of The Permanent Man. Some were already finalized and ready to go and a few still needed that last copy edit and cover made.

Fast forward to now and things are much different for Season 2. I've written almost the first four episodes of the season. None of them has been copy edited. And I don't have any covers made.

Yes. I'm way behind schedule.

Life does this thing where it gets busier. I have a family with three children. I have a full time job. And I have other personal responsibilities that take up my time. Writing is not a career. Writing can't take the ultimate priority for me. My approach to it has changed over the past few years. Now I write when I can and if I have the energy. It is a hobby.

A few months back, I began considering not publishing a second season of The Permanent Man. Demand wasn't there for it, nor the money. So unless I began getting a flood of emails asking where the second season is come November when I said it would be available, I wasn't going to worry about it.

But there's this nagging bit in my brain that wants to continue writing the season. I know it's impossible to release on November 11, 2014 and then have an episode ready every week for twelve weeks or so. My time won't allow for it. Where I used to write a lot a couple of years back, my personal life has changed that.

So what can I do?

I could release them still, as I complete them. But even this I didn't like. It reminded me of what I did with the first book in the Miscorrection Trilogy. No, sporadic and TBD releases for each episode wouldn't be fair to those who have read and enjoyed the series.

I came to the conclusion that I could maintain the "TV" style formatting of the show but rather than work on a week-to-week release for each episode, I would do it month-to-month. This gives me time to write each episode. Edit. Make a copy. Release. Start over again. It puts me ahead of schedule.

For those who have become fans of the series, you can still look forward to the first episode releasing on November 11, 2014. And I have to say, it's a great episode. As the cliffhanger ending of the first season hinted at, the series moves in a new direction. Patrick Hold is still trying to make his way home, of course. But with the series now set in ... oh, I better shut up. I wouldn't want any spoilers for those who plan to read Season 1 and those looking forward to Season 2.
