So like, I previously said that I was going to have the next chapter ready before Turkey Day, yes? Only now it looks like that really isn't going to happen.

I'm sorry, it's just that real life has been seriously, seriously kicking my arse this semester. I'm a full-time grad student now, and working two part-time jobs on the side, so yeah.

I'm going to try to do my best to polish up the next chapter (the dice game) over winter break, so it should be ready to go in January or so. After that, there are only two chapters left before the Exile part begins, and I have just *not* been making progress on the Exile chapters. Like, at all. The first mini-arc in the Exile section is completely drafted, but after that I'm basically stalled.

Blargh! I dunno. I guess I'll just keep editing and updating what material I've got drafted already, and then when I'm completely caught up to myself, I don't know what will happen. But I'll think of something.

Argh.

Okay, so... The reason that there hasn't been an update for May yet is that I've gotten stuck during the editing process. I can't quite figure out how to untangle this knot of a scene that desperately needs a re-write, but that so far I haven't been able to "fix" in anything remotely approaching a satisfying way.

But I'm working on it.

My goal now is to keep hammering away at that damn scene until it works, and then, to make up for the delay, hopefully post a double-update in June.

My apologies to anyone who's actually been waiting for the next chapter. ^^;;

First! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much to everyone who has commented on the story so far. And yes, that includes those of you who have commented begging for updates - it lights the fire under my ass and feeds my ego. ^____^

Second! Here's the deal. I have two chapters that I want to post soonish. Unfortunately, I seem to be butting my head against something even deadlier than writer's block: Editor's block. Blaaaaargh. There is a section in the next chapter that requires major huge revision, and I'm really struggling with it right now. But I am working on it.

In happier news, this month I've made significant progress writing "ahead" (in the exile portion of the story), so yay go me. There's still about a year's worth of material already drafted at this point. And I'm still working, every month, on writing more.

This has been your friendly neighborhood update for January. Thank you again for all of your support, and I'm sorry about the delay.
