As you may have noticed, I haven't updated in a while and this is due to several reasons:
I had plenty of exams coming up and had to focus on revision. School is very important as you probably know already.
2) My social life.
My social life has been incredibly hectic over the past few weeks and I couldn't find the time to write anything.
3) A wedding.
My cousin is getting married soon and this is the main reason that I've been delayed in getting chapters out. My entire family is going berserk over it and I've been picked as a ring-bearer. I'm happy because he picked me but because of that, I haven't been able too.
4) My inspiration.
As many fellow authors know, inspiration is key to any story. If you don't have that certain spark when you write a story then it isn't worth writing it. If you don't connect with the story, then you might as well just mercifully end it instead of painfully dragging it out. Don't worry, I'm not ending the Fourth Wall yet, but sometimes I feel I lack the inspiration and when I get that feeling, I don't write because it'll turn out as a piece of mush and won't be pleasant to read.
Hopefully, this has given you some insight as to why it's taking so long to write the next chapter.
I sincerely apologise for the lack of updates.
P.S The next chapter is almost finished.
P.P.S Due the the wedding, the 10th chapter will also take a long time :(
P.P.P.S Some other reasons the next chapter is taking so long:
