I enjoy writing.

March 2015 Update:

Hey again! Just wanted to give a quick status update since I've been getting a bunch of messages and a few reviews asking what the plan is.

As of now I'm halfway done with my manuscript, which is significantly behind schedule, but sometimes life just throws you for a loop. I've been increasingly busy over these last few months with mostly family related things, and the next two months are looking to be even more hectic. Seven birthdays in the next two weeks, trip to NC a bit after, my best friend is getting married in May and I've been trying to help out with the planning, boring financial stuff, etc. New ETA on the next chapter has to be pushed back to May/June, unfortunately. I know it sucks (it sucks for me too, trust me), but sometimes priorities sneak up and sucker punch you in the kidney.

If you have any questions or just want to drop me a line, feel free to PM! I do get emails whenever somebody messages/reviews/follows/favorites, and I do try to reply to those in a timely manner. I've had some great conversations with people recently, and although I can't dedicate the time to write fanfiction, I'll never be too busy to chat.

All the best,
-Wes

December 2014 Update:

Heya folks. I don't think anybody will quite be to understand how loath I am to do this, but I'm going to be taking a hiatus for a few months starting this December. The reasons are varied, but the most important is that I've finished the planning phase of the book I'm going to be writing and want to dedicate my time to writing it. I considered putting out another chapter beforehand, but decided that I wouldn't be able to find a desirable stopping point in the near future, and the end of CH29 was as good as any. My focus is going to be getting the initial manuscript done by the end of February - it'll likely turn out to be nearly as long as CFKD, which has been a year and a half in the making so far. Finishing in three months is my goal, but it may be a touch longer or shorter depending entirely on my dedication to it.

I want to emphasize that CFKD is far from over, and I have a lot planned for its future, but I just need to prioritize other things for the time being. I do have a piece of fanart that I commissioned for the story not too long ago (one I've been trying to get done for a year),and I posted that below for your viewing pleasure.

A heartfelt thanks to all of you following the story, and a sincere apology for extending the wait on the next chapters. I fully intend to be back at it in March/April while the rough draft of my novel is resting before going through the intensive editing/revising process. I hope you all enjoy the holidays, and I'll see you next year!

Until next time,
- Wes

CFKD Art Commissions!

Naruto, Sasuke, and Hinata - by Nawara

Team Seven - by Sternenmelodie

Writing progress:

CFKD - Chapter Thirty: On hold - see above!

[As a general rule, a comfortable chapter length for me is between 10k and 12k words.]

[As another general rule, I don't update on a schedule. Sometimes I can get a chapter out in a week, sometimes two weeks, and sometimes it's a month. Lots of factors play into it, but rest assured I'm dedicated to continuing my updates as long as people want to keep reading CFKD!]

Team 8 by S'TarKan reviews
What if Naruto had been selected for a different team? What if he'd had a different mentor? Who would guess the consequences would be so large?

Cruel Fate, Kind Destiny reviews
A single act of kindness can ripple outward, like a stone cast into still water. When Naruto is taken in by Iruka at a young age, his life changes in ways he never could have imagined. From the untold days of Naruto's youth, small ripples will become waves to alter the destinies of those around him. AU.

Moving On reviews
Naruto and Sasuke have lived in agony for years after losing one most precious to them. They've found a way to get a second chance to say things they never had the opportunity to say, and the ability to move on. Coda to "Cruel Fate, Kind Destiny". One-shot.
