Announcements and Stuff (Don't Call it a Comeback, I've Been Here for Years) · 3:54pm January 18th

*peeks around corner and grins sheepishly*

Um … hi. So I know I said that I wasn’t planning on just disappearing for a chunk of time again, and that I did disappear anyway. In my defense, I really, really didn’t mean to. *cough*

That is a difficult question for me to answer. The shortest version is "yes, I hope so," but there are lots of layers to that. I have planned on continuing with new chapters once I finished the rewrites I wanted to do for the earlier chapters, which was something I started several years ago, stalled out on, and then started again a few months ago (you can refer to this blog for when I started up the rewrites again, as well as a more in-depth history of what happened and what I wanted to get out of the rewrites and things). The next chapter rewrite is actually the next thing on my plate as far as pony writing goes, so it's more or less a current active project for me, but I'm in a bit of a writing slump at the moment—which is actually for a bunch of positive reasons that can be shortened to "I got a new job and haven't figured out how to comfortably fit writing in around it yet"—so I haven't worked on it or anything else in a bit. I'm hoping to change that soon, in which case I'll be back on track to getting the rewrites done and moving onto writing new material for it.

I know it's been a thousand years and that a number of people want to see more of it, and it's a sore spot for me that it's been left in such an unfinished state. If I had infinite time in a day, there'd be no question that I'd get it finished, but as it is I'm not entirely sure when I'll get to it. I'm hopeful I can devote more mental energy to writing in the next few weeks here so I can get back to it and a bunch of other writing projects that are starting to grow mold.

I don’t mean to be rude but I just need to know, are you going to continue the Coming Back Series? A lot of people including me loved it and were sad to see that it hasn’t been updated in a while. If you aren’t, I will respect that decision but I think people do want to know if you plan on continuing it or not.

I think you might have, but that it was at a time when I wasn't really active on the site and I might not have gotten back to you, so sorry if that was the case. Anyway, no, I don't take requests, sorry. My writing time's cramped enough working on my personal stuff, I just don't have the time to work on other stuff.

I might have already asked this before, so I apologize in advance, but would you be willing to take a request?
