    Update

    Hi there.

    First off, apologies for the long wait for an update. Ever since I got promoted I have had to do a lot more 'adulting'. Just about got a handle on it and the 'imposter syndrome' was starting to fade when they go a promote me again! (Seriously? What the heck are 'upstairs' smoking... and can I have some?)

    Next chapter now at editor's

    Next chapter, Deterrent (part 2), has now been passed to my editor. Or perhaps 'unleashed upon' would be a better terminology.

    Yes, I agree it has been a (too) long time.

    I claim NO major crisis or drama in my life to account for it. Just life itself ticking-over, inexorably dragging me, kicking-and-screaming, towards being a responsible, mature, grown-up adult.

    ...whimpering sounds...

    Next Chapter soon.

    The next chapter, Deterrent - Part 1, has now been submitted to my editor... for the second time. He (quite rightly) pointed out something the first time, something that was basically 'well that's all a little too convenient', so off I went to sort that out.

    Still Alive

    Just thought I’d drop a quick blog to state that: No I’m not dead... and neither is this story.

    The next chapter is coming along, just more slowly than I hoped, but it is coming together.

    No major drama going on here, it’s just xmas, mum is down with us right now and the longer working hours mean less free time during the working week.

    Chapter will be published Monday

    I haven't heard back from my editor yet, which is highly unusual. Normally a day or two, three at most.

    While I am hesitant to release the chapter with proper editing, I will publish it Monday. Keeping everyone waiting any longer than that is just getting/has already got silly.

    So, I will go through it one more time myself looking for errors.

Next Chapter soon. · 10:06am May 7th, 2017

The next chapter, Deterrent - Part 1, has now been submitted to my editor... for the second time. He (quite rightly) pointed out something the first time, something that was basically 'well that's all a little too convenient', so off I went to sort that out.

Anyway, sorry for such the long wait for the new chapter. Lots of things I could point my finger at - I was ill at the beginning of the year, (nothing serious); my new work hours meaning that my free time during the week (especially to write) has been greatly reduced; that I'm trying to keep the laptop out of my bedroom (I used to do quite a bit before bed,) as it was starting to mess with my sleep pattern; that the wardrobe door in my bedroom broke and fell off (don't ask). It's a minor thing but it does annoy me, waaaay more than it should I admit.

But honestly, the biggest culprit was that my motivation had flagged. Looking at the same chapter for months on end, trying to wrestle it into something you like can do that to a person. I even halved the length of it so there was less I had to sort out (hence the 'part 1') and it's still ~7.8k words.

I really gotta learn when to step away and say 'f*ck it, that's good enough. It's time to move on'.

So with a fair wind, I intend to publish it within the next week.
