Hello Dear Readers,

I assume that if you are reading this message that there are at least a few of you who still faithfully await some word of my existence. For that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Firstly, I owe you a sincere apology. Several years have passed since I last updated my one and only online story. Though it may surprise you given my apparent abandonment of The Winning Losers, I did think of you and this story from time to time with great fondness.

Secondly, I owe you an explanation. To state it briefly, a lot happened in my life, and a lot of things changed in my outlook, consequently changing the way I write and communicate. By the time I reached the latest chapter of my unfinished story, I could feel I was already a different writer from the person who began, and I had much growing still in store. The disconnection in style and inspiration discouraged me from continuing. I'm a little obsessive, you see, and I was dissatisfied with the inconsistency of quality throughout this little oeuvre. Some parts still tickle me, but others, after rereading them, fall painfully flat. The wasted potential is a kind of torture. I felt I could not finish it without overhauling the story all together and starting somewhat afresh. And I, slacker that I am, felt exhausted with the idea. So I left it unfinished.

Every now and then, I still get these lovely and encouraging reviews that make my hand itch with the urge to take up the keyboard and revive the plot. I also just hate the fact that for once in my life I didn't see something through the end. If I do this, would you be willing to start over with me? Some things will remain, but a lot would change for the better.

Please send your feedback in the reviews.

Cheers, everyone!
