AN; Update on new part :(
I am sorry to say that at this point I do not know when I shall next update. I have been going through a bad patch of exams, coursework, stress, making choices, interviews and heavy family issues. I can't say when I'll update because I don't know when I'll pull myself out of the funk I've been in since my grandma died. I haven't forgotten about my story I just haven't had the drive, passion or creativity to start the next part yet. I'm sorry because everyone is so loyal but I tried to write the first chapter over the past couple of months but my mind is completely blocked with real life at the moment. I appologise for not saying something sooner but I hoped to be able to post something for you guys. :(
I have left my previous AN up to let anyone not come across it know the status of my chapters and the story so far. Again I apologise my mental state and circumstances in my life have cut off the mood I need to write an update. Maybe I will update the story in the future for now it will stay as it is however I can let you know that introducing the other Canon characters from middle earth is what I wanted and still want to do.
Thankyou for all your reviews, faves, follows and messages it really has meant a lot to me.
A happily more stable.
I was struck by a bolt of an idea and have decided to split the story so that everything I have already posted is the first part. I've also just seen the hobbit and it kicked my muse into gear. I think that the way I ended chapter seven almost closes things off for continuing so ending it there means that I can launch into a fresh time period with lots of new characters and I can leave things tidy and ended as they are. Have to admit that during the three hours I didn't pick up much. Damn Richard Armitage (Thorin) with his lush hair and sexy beard distracting me every 5 mins. Then there was 10 seconds of Lee Pace (Thranduil) that made me swoon. I loved the scenery the most and after watching the two towers a couple of days ago I'm all set for writing again and I've found a whole new love for it :)
I want to thank everyone for their support over the past few months. Things have been hard especially with exams and christmas and my best friend going into hospital only a fortnight after my grandma. I got into a funk and felt really down for a while.
Anyway past all that I want to thank everyone for their comments, faves, alerts, even just flicking through the first chapter because it let me know that people are interested in my work and it helped me focus myself somewhat by telling myself that if people are reading then I need to carry on. I started writing a chapter 8 but it didn't work and it showed that I was preoccupied with other things. I'm marking the story as finished and I'm changing the title a little then I'll be working on the first chapter of the second part. In the future I might post up one-shots if I write any good ones :3
I hope everyone has a great 2013 and I hope everyone enjoys the first chapter when it arrives :)
