    6. The Best Laid Plans

    Honestly, I didn't think it would go that awry, in regards to my updating schedule. My second semester of University started, I was busy and pushed back an update a week. Followed by another week, and then another. And true to the snowball effect, it really didn't stop until...well, it has not even stopped as of yet. But with University Exams upcoming ("Pssh, who even needs to study") and

    5. Updates, floods, and exams (or any combination thereof)

    Well, I finally got up "Chapter 1" of In Her Shadows. Between University exams and study, my life has been largely consumed by mundane things. Not fun. And to compound things, a large winter storm blew up from Antarctica and hammered the South Island of New Zealand, especially the Otago region. We received heavy rain and hail, which over-saturated ground and caused mudslides; and massive

    4. Delays and Exams

    Ah, apologies...that deadline I set? Yeah...exams and assignments came up. I was about 3,400 words through it when I seriously began to question my actual introduction to the story I was trying to do, and then got blindsided with a last minute assignment. So I'll have the post up in the later stages of this week, and will resume writing and have a post up soon after exams. Sorry about that again.

    3. University and Delays

    As it turns out, the 'crunch' phase of a University Semester is easily the most hectic time and stressful of times at University. I wouldn't have known that for sure if this were not my first semester. Fortunately, I've bumbled my way though largely unscathed. I may even pass Statistics (quite honestly, I don't know if I will), but other than that, my other classes are going well. But in any

    2. Establishment

    Well, I've got the first two chapters of stories I've had on my mind up on the site, and I've established a basic presence on the site. So far, so good. So, what I have in mind right now is to post updates for one story, and then the other - hence giving me time to brainstorm for either. I'm not sure on a timeline for posts: I'll be working on these between University and life - with any luck,

5. Updates, floods, and exams (or any combination thereof) · 12:40pm Jun 21st, 2013

Well, I finally got up "Chapter 1" of In Her Shadows. Between University exams and study, my life has been largely consumed by mundane things. Not fun. And to compound things, a large winter storm blew up from Antarctica and hammered the South Island of New Zealand, especially the Otago region. We received heavy rain and hail, which over-saturated ground and caused mudslides; and massive rainfall led to my community flooding when the Taieri River decided it had quite enough of staying in its banks. So all the roads in the region were flooded, and most of the three days of being stranded were used moving firewood away from floodwaters, retrieving firewood, ensuring the Alpacas were alright, and staying warm. This flooding also caused me to miss my latter most exam (BSNS105 - Introduction to Management and Organisations) - which had lead to a small fight with the University about how being unable to drive through metre-deep water constitutes a valid reason for being unable to attend an exam and reschedule. (But honestly, if it doesn't work out, email correspondence and my application for 'Special Consideration' goes to the local newspaper to call out the University.) But it will all work out, and hopefully, back to writing. Apologies for the wait: I promise I will make it work your while.
