Hey everyone, here for the monthly updates as usual.
- First off, the revised version of the short James and Percy has been released! It was the first short ever, and a lot of fun back in 2014 when I first wrote it, but since I've changed a lot of things, including my writing style, character base, and certain standards, I felt it needed a revision. Around late 2017 is when I first considered it, but then, during development of That's What Friends Are for and the idea of introducing Jessie, things changed and I decided to hold off on it. Finally, after I the release of Real Engines, officially establishing the characters of Adventures on Rails, I finally knew it was time, and so long behold, it's here. All feedback is welcome and the original…
It's June, summertime, and time for some updates regarding Adventures on Rails.
- First off, the stand-alone episodes continue being issued. Last month, I delayed a little, due to finals, but I managed to get two out, namely Warm Coaches and Garage Sale. And today, The Fire was released. Honestly, I've a good amount of story ideas that I wouldn't want to hold back due to being included in a short. So now, as I've done, released a few each month, whenever I feel the story is ready to be published. Truth be told, I have a couple ideas on what to do with the stories so far. One plan is to simply create the twenty-first season of Adventures on Rails, albeit with no fixed dates on when the episodes air which I did regularly when I had seasons. For …
It's now May, so time for some updates.
- April saw the release of three stand-alone episodes as had been anticipated. These being Stuck in the Snow, Oily in the Morning, and Old and New in that order. All really are based off simple railway incidents that have occurred and it's amazing what can be created from a simple incident. For May, I won't give an exact number, but there should be one or two new episodes. I have several ideas for the Harwick branch amongst other things, so keep a look-out for more episodes.
- June will see the revised version of James and Percy. Basically, it'll bring the short up to date and coincide with all the elements I've incorporated since. Definitely, when I first released it, I was still grasping my own writing s…
Hello there. Yes, there's announcements for April . . . or is there? Yes there is. Grab a drink if you please as we go right in.
- First off, Work and Play has been released. As stated previously, based on a true story which I've also linked on the page and I definitely appreciate feedback as well as recommend reading the story. For me, the first time I read it, it blew my mind away and I just could not stop thinking if it could work as a Thomas story. Inevitably, it does as do most real-life railway stories/incidents. Trust me, that's the building blocks of most of my stories so if you're ever needing a story idea, look around! The internet these days provides access to various railway incidents which can easily be adapted into a Thomas stor…
Here we go with this month's updates.
- First off, there have been some re-writes, particularly Donald and the Lost Tarpaulin. I'll pick up on more after the release of Work and Play which is due for release on 11 March. Again, based on a real story which is always great as I mentioned before. I hope you'll all enjoy it was well when it comes out. Also, it'll be the first to utilise the Railway Series format i.e. four stories comprise the short. It's the format I'll be using for the next couple shorts but it's by no means permanent. The format that fits each short the best will be used be it RWS or the long format.
- James and Percy is/has been due for a re-write and that will come this June. I expect for the rivalry to still be there. The most …
