Hello there friends, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?
Terribly sorry about not checking in. It’s constantly been at the back of my mind and yet somehow I just haven’t got around to it. I suppose it’s one of those things, but as you would expect me to do, I will explain the circumstances behind my absence.
First off, I suppose it goes without saying that I haven’t really had much to update you on with regards to the writing front. I’ve been tinkering away with my edit of Hikari’s Coma, decided part way through that a scene was rather silly and rewrote it entirely, and came up with a decent ending which I haven’t written yet but will be written down in time. I was hoping to have the whole thing done and ready to go on the 13th of April – Hikari’s birthday, incidentally – but it seems like I’ve missed the boat before it’s really departed on that one. Unless I go absolutely hell for leather and do nothing but edit for the next two days (an impossibility courtesy of the day job) there isn’t a snowball’s chance in a meteor storm of me finishing it. Perhaps I’ll go for Sarina’s birthday instead – that at least gives me to July!
Secondly, my current employment situation is due to come to an end relatively soon, and as such I have been working overtime on looking for alternate means of employment – and succeeding somewhat. In fact, I would say that my life is coming up to the biggest potential divergence I have faced in many years. I could end up going into media on a more permanent basis – and possibly in an entirely different country. Or, I could end up going back to college and studying to become an engineer. As it stands, I’m not really sure which one I’d prefer. We shall see what happens, I suppose!
Other than that, I’ve been feeling the need for a bit of downtime. I shan’t bore you with the trials and tribulations of my personal life, but one way or another, circumstances have dictated that I have other things, more pressing things to spend my time on. That being said, I would love to have the motivation and the opportunity to sit down and do some writing as is within my remit as an author.
I understand that perhaps this isn’t the most cheerful update, but I thought it prudent to keep you abreast of all the recent goings-on in my life. I hope that next time I update, I have something rather more interesting for you to read. We shall certainly see!
