I know you clicked this, expecting a long-overdue 38th chapter, but...I'm not quite ready yet. (Sorry!) (*ducks* Hey hey hey, at least put the rotten tomatoes in ziplock baggies before you throw them at me...ouch, people, your aims are too good! :P) I promised myself I was never, ever going to do this (and that I would never, ever have a reason to) but here is a lengthy but informative writer's note about my prolonged absence from the writerly world of fanfiction.
God, I can't believe it's November already! I must be suffering from "tempus volaticus" – flying time. XD Lots of things have been going on, and my fingers have been put to good use in typing essays (for school), letters of indignant protest, and very, very dry chapters for my NaNoWriMo story (my poor inner editor – the abuse she's going through! The abuse!). (Consequently, my NaNo novel and I currently hate each other, though I strive to overcome that tiny flaw in the design.)
In other news, I've added a couple of links to my writer's page. One will take you to my NaNoWriMo page, where hopefully you will be able to see the fruits of my ignoring my fanfiction ruthlessly. (And, if you don't, feel free to harass me about getting –something- done. ;)) The other will take you to my new blog (well, I guess it's not too new now…). You may also harass me about updating that more frequently, as well, or these fanfics, for that matter. ^_^ Sometimes we procrastinators need a little (*cough* was that the right adjective?) nudging to get us going.
To a more relevant topic – Redemption! Well, I've hit a tiny snag. You see, I know exactly what's coming up in Redemption, but I'm having trouble closing the gap between now and then. I'm working on it. The biggest problem is research. I feel like I need to do some more research to make certain parts of Redemption more realistic (because, when I don't know what I'm talking about, I just sort of fumble about and try to avoid that part as much as possible). The biggest problem with research is finding the time to do it. I'm working on it, guys! I promise!
I sincerely apologize for falling off the face of the earth to you guys… ;-; GOOD NEWS is that we community college peeps get an entire week off for Thanksgiving (I know what I'm thankful for… XD) so you know what I'll be doing… (Namely, writing. Of three varieties. NaNo, essay, and fanfiction.)
Again, I'm so sorry for not updating in…holy crap. Over a month. o.o Whoops. My next short-term goal is chapter 38 – hopefully it'll be up sometime next week. We'll see how it goes. Once it is up, though, this note will be deleted in order to keep Chapter 38 with the numeral 38 (because I'm picky about little things like that xD). I'm so glad to see some surviving interest, and I hope to have a chapter for you soon!
(PS: I noticed some shock in a few When We Fall reviews, namely due to its quick end. I would like to drop a hint that a sequel is not totally impossible… ;))
