Subject: And here's chapter 6!
Posted on: 2022-01-08 16:46:07 UTC

Two chapters in a row, yes, but I had to change some plans, and these were written pretty much in one burst of writing inspiration. Originally, chapters 5, 6 and 7 were going to be one single entity, but the characters insisted on having a lot of fun banter and long but extremely plot-relevant conversations, so they grew into their own things. I haven't the foggiest when I'll manage to finish what was actually going to be the majority of the entire chapter before I had to split it in three, so for now, here's the continuation of the yarn I began to spin in chapter 5. I'll try to get out chapter 7 soon, but it's unlikely it'll be out before this time next week, so I figured I would leave here what I have of the story so far, and let you folks decide if it was a wise move on my part.

Here is the latest chapter. Content warnings: swearing, and some very brief body horror mentions, but nothing graphic within the chapter itself.

(For the record: pretty much all the chapters I've posted for Hexmaster so far are in the 2000-2300 word range. I don't want to post too much stuff, nor do I want this story to get bloated, but I'm trying to find the balance between keeping things concise and actually fleshing out the setting and the characters, of whom there are many. So the compromise on my part is to be doing bite-sized episodes instead of gigantic chapters, which hopefully makes it easier for readers.)
