    This Blog is About The Immortal's Burden

    tl;dr up front: No, it isn't getting a sequel unless I get an idea I feel is good enough to follow it up.

    So I've seen some comments asking me to make a sequel for The Immortal's Burden, and they have a couple upvotes, so it seems like at least a few people want this. I'm sorry to bear bad news, but that's probably not going to happen for a couple reasons.

    What's Half an Inch Long and Stuck in My Root Canal?

    Gosh, it's been an interesting two weeks.

    In terms of good news, I got a chapter of Hourglass posted, cementing myself into a monthly update schedule! I don't think I've ever been this proud to be this pathetic. Hopefully when the story picks up, so will my schedule. Hopefully. Fingers crossed.

    Like Sands Through The Hourglass, This Is My Mental State

    Okay, so at the start of November I started posting my story Hourglass for NaNoWriMo. I already had some chapters written when I published the story so I could have a buffer in case I missed some writing in my planned every-other day schedule. I had preplanned individual chapters far ahead to reduce time in brainstorming and writing.

    A Belated Thank-You

    Right then, I'm finally in my spring break and my uni work-load has dropped to zero, so I should probably sit down to write a thank-you blog for The Immortal's Burden now that it's been...

    Seven months? What?

    Well. Uhhh. I certainly feel silly now.

Good news! I'm neither dead nor dying!

And that's the end of the good news segment!

So I've gone to a lot of doctors and done some ice-cream-aided soul searching I've discovered that I haven't been in the best mental or physical state for quite some time now. I'm not expected to further deteriorate physically, though that's a bit tenuous because nobody is sure what's really wrong. I'm getting used to living with a constant tremor and occasional tick, and starting to build some semblance of a schedule for myself around the chronic exhaustion. I get dizzy if I try to do too much more than walk around a bit, though thankfully my main hobbies of writing, drawing and gaming generally don't require lots of walking.

Mentally, I've been referred to a psychologist to help me move past the denial stage of my very drawn out realization that I've been irreparably changed in what I can and can't do. I'm rather stubborn on all levels, even when I don't want to be, so that's going to be a journey. I still wince at the thought of accepting that I medically qualify as physically disabled, just because I still feel like I should be able to buckle down and force my way through this, nevermind the fact that I already tried that and it actually just brought me closer to death than I've ever been before.

Mildly angsty life ranting aside, I still want to continue writing the Hourglass. I have been writing, but it's been a little hard between all the doctor visits and the excessive sleeping. I've also got another story idea inspired by the most recent WriteOff Association prompt "Here At The End Of All Things," so be on the lookout for that if you want. It'll be a bit lower on my priority list than Hourglass, partially because I'm still beating myself up for writing only 1/10th of what I wanted to for it during NaNoWriMo, but both should update with a relative sense of consistency. Currently my plan is to update each story once a month because my standards for myself are lower than a worm's limbo bar at the moment. That may change, of course. God I hope that changes.

For now, sorry for all the hiatuses up to this point, and sorry in advance for the hiatuses yet to come. Should an absolute fucking miracle occur, that being my sudden curing or equally sudden death, I'll do my best to inform whoever it is that reads these blogs. Slightly less chance of notice being posted in the latter case.
