Weekly Update #304: Chapter 4 Outline Done!

At long last, the “outline” for the fourth chapter of GENBA no Kizuna has finally been finished!

Once again, the main reason it took this long is because, instead of using key notes, I ended up fully writing out most of the chapter. At this point, around 70% – 80% of it are actual script, resulting in the length of the document almost reaching 40,000 words. And there is no doubt in my mind that it will break the 50,000 word mark, once everything is written out, meaning that this chapter alone would almost be a third of SHINRAI‘s total length.

Anyway, I can’t wait to send it to Natsu and get her feedback, along with her theories. Chapter 5 will wrap up the story and unravel all the mysteries, so I’m really curious to see how the “difficulty” of finding the correct answers turns out to be.

Speaking of chapter 5, I have already started to get back to it, in order to finish it up as well, ASAP. As you might know, the outline for it had actually been completed before I even started working on chapter 4. However, now that the content of the previous chapter has been set in stone, some things need to be adjusted. What was supposed to start off the final chapter has actually been moved into the fourth one, for instance, so I already revised the beginning. But some of the case details have also changed, allowing for more possible theories and more elaborate “wrong culprit endings”.

There is still a bit more to do, but this is mostly about revision and should hopefully be taken care of within just a couple of days.

Naturally, this will be my main focus during the coming week, but there are also a couple of other things that need to be taken care of. For one, the summer artwork and, of course, I still need to continue going through SHINRAI for certain reasons which I might be able to share with you at the end of the month!

This wraps up this week’s progress report, so please enjoy the rest of your weekend and, until next Saturday, take care! :3
