Thought I'd post a journal entry, if for no other reason to remind you all I'm alive and kicking. Man, I really should post journals more frequently...

In any event, been a fairly busy summer for me. In previous years, I end up getting weeks or even months off in the summer thanks to a lack of work from our clients (a double-edged sword, admittedly), but this year, they've changed my schedule around a bit so I can work full-time all the time, which is great. More money is always good. As for the jury duty I was complaining about before? Well, it turns out they didn't end up needing me to serve on a jury; after a few days, my portion of the jury pool was sent home, as they didn't have enough trials to require our participation. One less thing to stress about, at least for the next three years.

Also wanted to thank everyone for their chiming in about trigger warnings on my current poll, the comments in particular have been great, and really instructive. Some of the stuff coming up in future chapters of The Grey Path might be a little extreme for some, so I thought it might be a good idea to test the waters, as it were. As for the conclusions I'm drawing from it? Well, I'm still in the process of deciding, but if you have any insights on the subject, feel free to let me know.

And while we're on the subject, what about The Grey Path? Doing better; just cleared a bit of writer's block that was holding up a scene, so I think it should go a bit smoother now. Also, it's just a thousand more pageviews to go until I reach 50,000 views, so I'm thinking of doing a Merrill-centric story to commemorate it. Just be assured that while I haven't been as productive as I'd like, I haven't abandoned The Grey Path at all.

But if you're looking for some great Dragon Age fanfiction to tide you over (or to read on its own merits), then you should definitely take a gander at the works of both :iconzombiehunter52: and :iconvhetin1138: , both of whom are excellent writers who deserve a lot more views than they're getting. Hope to have some new stuff for you all soon!
