On the annulment of Sorrow & Solemnity

It has been over three months since I went on hiatus and I can confirm that I still write on Tatzelwyrm, don’t worry. Most of that time I was concerned with the rewrite of Childhood & Charity as well as Freedom & Folly, but I have also spent a great deal of time coming to grips…

On the past of Tatzelywrm and a map

The past of Tatzelwyrm: When I started thinking up this story, I had it set in a generic Fantasy world, with standard fantasy stuff, that should never play a prominent role itself.

The new site

With the rewrite I did, I have decided to let go of the blog Quillways as the primary publishing platform for the serial webnovel Tatzelwyrm. Instead, I'll be using this platform as a hub for the different platforms that I release Tatzelwyrm on. Check the Tatzelwyrm page to get a link to all the platforms…

Upcoming changes

Today, I release chapter 18 of Tatzelwyrm. I have thought about the first few chapters a lot in the recent days and come to the conclusion that chapters 1-10 do not do a good enough job at hooking new readers and setting the scene and tone for the story, as well of the central conflict.…
