Hey there, everyone. I wanted to thank you all for your continuing patience and support, as well as all your well-wishes following my cousin passing away, I really appreciate it. One of my major concerns was about how my aunt was going to function; besides the obvious pain of losing her son, he was also helping her around the house, as she's very frail these days. Fortunately, she seems to be doing okay, myself and the rest of the family are helping her out whenever possible, and slowly but surely, we're getting back in the swing of things. That, as you can imagine, has been taken up some of my focus, regrettably, as has the fact that I've been called up for jury selection this week. I'm trying (and failing) not to stress about that, as it's leaving so much up in the air and uncertain (including a steady paycheque), but all I can really do is see if I get selected for a jury this week, and take it from there.

So yeah, there's lots of stuff going on in my life, but I'm doing what I can on the writing front regardless. It's been too damn long since I've posted something, and I'm starting to get frustrated with my lack of progress. Become a full-time writer is one of my life's ambitions, and how can I do that if it's taken me months to produce a single chapter? So yeah, it's discouraging, but I have no intentions of giving up, or trying to rush through and delivering a sub-standard entry.

On a more positive note, I've passed over 45,000 views on DeviantArt, yay! :) I'll definitely have to do something special for when I reach the 50,000 mark, so if any of you have some burning ideas, feel free to share. Regardless, thanks to you all for everything! I'll keep you appraised of the whole jury duty situation as it develops (a phrase I've been saying a lot lately...)
