So. I’ve recently been going through a string of very stressful events — not related to the story, but they’ve been having an impact on my writing. (if you want the details, I’ve posted them in my most recent online diary post.) Yesterday I actualy wrote two full Midnight Moonlight chapters — each of which is easily the length of a full week’s worth of Et Alia — and they fell far short of my usual standards and probably would’ve derailed that story a bit. I didn’t even get a start on more Et Alia, in the wake of that.
And that is no good.
The upshot, then, is that I need a little time to pull myself together. I’m going to give myself the rest of this week off, rather than struggle to catch up or post something I’m not satisfied with.
I am really, genuinely, deeply sorry about this — especially with Et Alia getting the short end of my attention span last week, too. If I have it together enough by this weekend, I’ll post a full week’s then before resuming regular updates. But I don’t want to commit to that while I’m in the headspace that I’m in right here and now.
Thank you for your understanding and patience,
