Feb 23, 2010:

Has it really been almost 4 years since I last updated anything here? Wow, where has the time gone? I'd say forgive me, especially if there is anyone left waiting for the update of Wisdom of Snow. The last two years have been a whirlwind to say the least. Finally graduated university (now, ironically preparing to go back for graduate), fell in love, got married, switched jobs two or three times, moved halfway across the country (northward bound!) etc, etc, etc. Through it all, WoS has been there, with me working on it whenever I could. The dialogue of the chapter 2 has been rough, the character development has been excruciating and through it all I found that despite where it was going I had lost interest in the things that took me to the ending, I simply wanted to get to the end, dammit! But it is finally done, well chapter 2 anyway. I just had a stroke of good fortune last night and finished the last 3,000 words or so in one last ditch effort when I had not been able to write more than 250 in the last two years. It is now scheduled for update officially, and chapter 3 has a good lead in. Just let me sit on it for a few days, go over it and then see where I have to fix a few things.

Lately, I've also taken a hard look at the rest of my offerings. Gone through my list of upcoming projects, decided which, realistically, I could still write and which no matter how much I liked the idea of could not come up with a deep enough plot to make it worth it. The end result is my upcoming works list is now in chaos. I don't really know what I'll be working on next, where it will come from or what it will be. All my energy at this point is set on finishing WoS and making it the best I can possible make it, but if I were to say anything about it, there could be another Love Hina idea and maybe an interesting Harry Potter story that has been bothering me. We shall see if I can flesh them out more. As for Infinite Wills. I don't know. I doubt anyone cares about that story much anymore as it has been more than 5 years since I last looked at it. I think I may have to remove it because I just don't see how it's fair to leave an unfinished work up that I have no realistic chance of finishing. We shall see about that as well.

Oh yes, and if any are interested in Beta/Pre reading. I do like to offer my services so contact me at the provided e-mail with the title of the piece, and a small summary providing the series you are working from with spoiler information and plot detail and I can provide a quick yes or no. If you are interested in Beta/pre-reading any of my current works in progress or future works in progress I am always on the lookout for someone to make sure I release quality work. Please make sure you have the time and inclination to read anything from lengthy series to small one shots and provide detailed feedback. Once again, e-mail me at the provided address with your name (preferably the pen-name you use here on ff.net) and the series you're interested in pre-reading. I love work exchanges!
