I’ll be brief:
- My back has not improved, and due to some complications, surgery is … risky. I will need to wait until my vertebrae heal to have that done.
- Until I have the surgery back pain will get worse along with possible nerve damage
- Finances are not good enough to risk taking long leave periods and work is … unstable.
As a result, it is very unlikely that the next chapter of TWCD will be out before August. I’m sorry to have to put things off at a cliff-hanger, but that’s the facts.
The fic is on hold, not dead. Even in the extremely unlikely event that I cannot finish it I would find a writer to continue it and provide ideas and support.
(Liethr: Medical details are in the chat, Cat can tell you, I’d appreciate your opinion. )
I haven’t been online much. Back issues. Slowly getting better.
Might be able to put something together this weekend. Not sure. Jacob, write something.
It’s about 10k words so far, and progress, while a bit slow, is a lot faster than on the previous chapter.
My back is not being cooperative, but I am working steadily towards getting this chapter out as soon as I can. So far, so good.
The past… weeks? Month? have been extremely bad!hectic!messy. The reorganization, several other issues at work (all of them retarded), back pain, financial issues and a lot of other stuff have derailed the update schedule completely.
The Good News: I have material ready from co-author Jacob, most of a Lions chapter, most of a tech guide update, and most of a Cerberus files thing on the batarians, as well as 4,000 words of the next chapter of TWCD.
The Not-so-Good news: My work responsibilities have become a lot more demanding, cutting down on my free time
The Bad News: I don’t know when things will let up.
I am taking a vacation in early April to try and decompress. I may work on the stuff then, or I may just finally rest and work on it when I get back, but it will get updated.
Some of you have donated to the Patreon. We’re currently looking for a new artist after some issues with the old one. Anyone who is interested in making money (a lot, not $5 or $10 but potentially several hundred dollars) who can do artwork is encouraged to contact me DIRECTLY at firstname.lastname@example.org with your portfolio — we have art waiting to be done.
Aside from that, I’d like to also give a reminder to everyone that you should be reading Aberron’s Living an Indoctrinated Dream.
I’ve been out of commission for a bit. A mix of writer’s block and severe personal issues did that. Back pain was so bad at one point that it hurt standing, walking, sitting, or even laying down.
Right now I’m stable (sort of) but still have a lot of issues on the plate to deal with. Not sure when I’ll have this chapter ready to go as it needs a lot of work still, but its the last one before everything goes to hell.
Not sure when I will be back into writing, still working with chiropractor.
If you are looking for something to read, Aberron updated his Illusive Man story not too long ago.
If you thought part one was bloody and messy….hee.
Depending on how many E-gangers show up tonight, this bad boy probably won’t be ready until Saturday morning. Something cool to read while you eat breakfast maybe. But it might come out tonight.
I am going to collapse into a painball until my back relaxes.
