I'm terribly, terribly sorry about not posting anything. I had planned to work on the next chapter of Hearts in Chaos
this weekend, but, well... real life suddenly got even more hectic and stressful than before. There's a lot going on right now, and between it and bad weather, I don't have the motivation, energy, or creativity to work on anything right now. I haven't forgotten about the third part of your prompt, LittleWindy7
, and I honestly want to get the next chapter of HiC pushed out the door as soon as I possibly can. It's just been literally one thing after another lately. I really want to keep working on it, as I have a few more things planned before I finally wrap up the story. I can't believe I've been working on the thing for over a year now, it's so hard to believe. When I started, I had originally planned to make it a three-chapter story, at maximum ten chapters. Now, it's creeping up on forty, and I'll know it'll be close to or at forty-five by the time I'm finished. I never expected it to grow like this, to take on three subplots on top of the main plot, and all the other things it's done. It's unbelievable.
My Lightning Returns story is no longer on track for release this month. I haven't gotten a single chance to work on it at all, which makes me pretty upset, because I have so much planned. I even have a title picked out, and I'm so tempted to tell everyone what it is (it even has Latin in it!), but I want to wait just a little bit longer. I'm starting to sound like SE themselves - "please be excited". Oh, well, there's not much I can do about that. The story sits in my mind, reminding me of the things I have planned for Sazh, Noel, Snow, Caius, Yeul, Lightning, and everyone else, the new twists and turns I want to introduce, and it's bugging me so much that it's making me crazy. It needs to come out, but I haven't had the time...
So, forgive me for being late on, well, everything. Life is hectic, but I haven't forgotten about anything. Hopefully, after this week, things will calm down again. Spring is just around the corner. I think we're all ready for a break from the horrible weather that's been assaulting my home country for way too long.
Thanks for being patient, everyone.
