It's been a long, long time. I've apologized before for tardiness, made promises I didn't very well keep, and generally failed to deliver the rest of this story to you all. I think you deserve better than what you've been given, and I feel that I can deliver now.
I'm sorry for dropping off the radar like I did; I never intended to abandon this story, nor any of you. However, life came at me with everything it had, and I couldn't very well write when I had so much to deal with personally. As such, I won't make any promises that I'm not 100% sure I can keep, and I won't disappear like before.
There's not much of value to be said for why I was gone, but suffice it to say that depression crippled me for the entirety of the time (and truthfully, a while before it), and only a few months ago did I escape it's grasp. Recently, I found myself checking out this story, and saw that I had in fact gotten a few favorites, even in my absence. It got me thinking, and reading. So, here I am, and with a new game plan:
I've decided that I'm going to edit and republish the current story I have written here. I won't change much, if anything, but I'll buff up the writing and fix the errors I discover along the way. I think I've evolved significantly as a writer, as well as a person. I plan to deliver a better executed version of the same story I've been telling.
I won't promise rapid updates, as I am working on a novel of my own as well, but the updated chapters shouldn't take me too long to pump out, and after that I imagine myself able to publish brand new chapters every few weeks, though I can't be sure. I'm not promising anything other than a finished version of this story to be published before a year's time. I hope I can get some new readers as well as bring back some old ones, though I would be surprised to see many of you sticking around for so long. We'll see, I suppose.
Again, I sincerely apologize for my absence and I hope that I can please you with the coming work.
I'll be posting again soon enough, ladies and gents.
