Index | First Chapter

Brakket Magical Academy in Northwestern United States is on its last legs. Enrollment of new students is at an all time low. The academy instructors go out to recruit prospective children other magical academies have ignored.

Eva is one such recruit. After witnessing her perform magic no teenage mage should have learned, an instructor of the academy offers her a full ride scholarship. Eva does not turn down the opportunity to learn magic in a proper capacity and quickly ships out to Montana.

Barely a day there and things already seem off. Every student has the same scholarship, odd-smelling men wander the town, and a spider demon has decided Eva’s dorm room is the place to be.

To get straight to the reading:

Index | First Chapter

The story is complete at 10 books, 257 chapters, 1,034,914 words.

Welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

Void Domain is a completed web novel. I put out two chapters every week for about two and a half years without missing a single update. I didn’t miss an update mostly thanks to writing ahead of the currently posted chapter, but I’m still quite proud of that statistic. I started writing Void Domain in July of 2015, and posted the final chapter in November of 2017.

Void Domain was essentially an experiment for me. I know I’m not the greatest writer, but I do want to write and improve my writing. So feel free to rip into whatever you don’t like. I have written before, but nothing ever got very far. I would usually stop after about five chapters, probably less than 15k words. I feel good about Void Domain. I’ve been able to write without trouble and, most importantly, generally feel good about each chapter.

Most chapters are between three thousand and five thousand words per chapter. Some might be more, some might be less. Some might be a lot more. It averages out to about four thousand words per chapter across all ten books. When reading, I generally find myself fatigued with extremely long chapters. Even if I am just curled up one day doing nothing but reading, a long chapter will still feel off to me. Three to four thousand is, in my opinion, the sweet spot.

Perhaps my word count will increase in the future, perhaps I will decide I like it where it is. Time will tell.

There is more I could say on my thoughts regarding writing, character competence, character morality, and influences. I think I will leave it at that for now. There are Author’s Notes at the end of each book that details more thoughts that are relevant to the writing, so look forward to those, though they are all optional.

Again, thank you for stopping by. Here are links once again:

    The Story idea sounds good. Do you have an overall idea of how your story will pan out? Like, the main points and the ending?

    From experience (though it’s mostly writing short stories and following 20+ novels at the same time, and at least 40 novels read completely), novels/serials which do not have a planned out basic story line, end up on hiatus (or dropped, eventually) or stretched out to the point it gets boring, Even if the story is really good and the author has an above-average command of English.

      I have a very clear ending in mind and several points I need to hit to reach that ending, but a vast majority of the stuff in between is in flux. General ideas but nothing concrete yet. My outlines tend to get followed strictly for a few chapters before deviating to the point where I have to redo the outline. Plotting too far ahead would lead to madness, I feel.

      Because of the web serial nature, I am planning for a lot of content. Or perhaps I have room for a lot of content. Most web novels that I have read tend to be quite long and I do enjoy having some meat to read rather than sit down for a few hours and blow through a measly 80-120k words.

      I’ll likely accelerate into the ending to, at the very least, provide closure should things get out of hand in any of the ways you mentioned. The ending is something I could paint a picture of–if I could paint, that is–so I do not anticipate many problems in that department.
