BETA/ADMIN NOTE: Just letting everyone know that as Nov. 3, 2012, this "update" is no longer valid, because Caleb is now back in business! I am, however, leaving this note here so that the reviews/comments placed here will not disappear. Enjoy the next chapter HERE!
First off, I want to apologize for the delay in apologizing for the delay. Obviously I should have done this, like, a month or two ago.
I'll keep it short and sweet, in direct contrast to my usual communiqués: I no longer have my laptop, and lost with it is all my progress, which includes about six thousand words of the next chapter. This has… arrested my impetus, you might say. More accurately, my writing 'career' has come to a grinding halt.
A wide variety of vexing personal issues, the details from which I will spare you, have combined to create a lethal complex of writer's block and apathy. I lost what I wrote and the will to rewrite it.
I can't bring myself to label this story as discontinued (as it has ever been my intention to finish, even if my reviews slow to a trickle and stop, a process that seems to have already begun). Saying it's on 'hiatus' feels dishonest; I have no time frame for such a pause or any work towards the future, at this point.
Anyway, I'm writing this on my damn phone, a process both arduous and painful. I don't think I'll be delivering any chapters this way. It straight up sucks.
Should things change, I'll press onward. I'm just now beginning to resign myself to rewriting the lost chapter, and since I can't remember how it went it will no doubt be drastically different if I ever finish it.
