I have been extremely exhausted lately and have not been able to find the energy to do the simple task of sitting down and writing any AG. With the combination of work, wedding planning, and racing, I have no other choice but to declare that there is no ETA on the next chapter of AG and that it will 'be ready when its ready'. I am hoping that I will be able to get it done before the wedding, and then get the chapter after that done before new years. It sucks, but thats where we are at right now...

Okay-- so clearly I get too busy and tired when trying to post journals on Wednesdays-- and then I end up procrastinating and forgetting all the rest of the week-- so my new plan is to try to post new journals on Sunday-- yes I know today is Monday-- but the plan is to start trying to do Sundays from now on so that I can get stuff done.

I got about a second and a half written today on the story-- but I am still a long way off-- I am really discouraged with how long this chapter is taking me and I am hoping that I can get past this slump soon. The job I've been on at work for a year will be ending in two weeks-- and when that happens my work will change some as I will no longer be doing as early of mornings every time and I may be ending up having more days without work than I have now-- which while financially sucks-- should help with my writing.

I am now under the two month mark for my wedding-- cross your fingers (Oct 31)

I have ALWAYS tried to write linearly in my work-- but with the struggles I've had with a scene and the fact its not a very important scene-- I have began skipping ahead to other scenes and working them-- doing a chapter non-linearly for the first time-- hopefully this doesnt mess up the continuity of the chapter at all.

Damn-- my whole plan was to get back on a wednesdays schedule-- and look what day it is! Hahaha I suck at this.

In honor of the return of school this week, I was hoping to get the first chapter done of either Kimee's Diary or the other story I have on hand which I havent really thought of a perfect title yet-- I got a little bit in to each but no where near completion on either first chapter when work began running late each day this week-- now that the first week of school is passed-- I guess I should just put those on the back burner again and see if I can try to get AG done before the end of this second month.

I did get in to the second scene of the chapter of AG-- which is still hardly anything when you consider theres only like-- 7 more days left in this month-- hopefully I can get some writing done tomorrow.  I knew this chapter would be difficult as it was the least developed one of the first 10 chapters going in to things, so I knew it'd be hard to get all the details put to paper.

So-- yeah-- one or two of you may have noticed that I did not write a journal last week-- that was slightly intentional-- partly I forgot-- and then I decided to push it off so that I could get back on a Wednesday schedule of journal updates.

I finished a little bit of the next chapter-- very little-- i.e. the first scene is done... I am irritated with myself and am hoping that actually accomplishing today allows me to get back in to a rhythm.  I have no been having writers block, its just a case that I have not been at all inspired to do any writing. 

I really wish I were able to do like these professional writers and not have to work 12 hour days. I have ideas in my head for a handful of other stories that I would like to start writing in my free time-- however I cant even get my primary story written in my free time and I am not going to work on a different story when I am a month behind on what I already promised people.

I am sorry to disappoint but I have not made much progress on the next chapter. We worked a lot extra this week and its been hard to sit down upon getting home and actually working. I am probably-- eh-- 1/7th of the way through the chapter still... I really hate to let people down but its hard to put out a chapter sometimes with how busy I can get at work. 

On days I get home, I have either just sat down and fallen asleep, turned on the TV and just kind of vegged sitting there watching it, the last couple days I've been getting caught up on MLP:FiM, and then on weekends, I am at the racetrack half the day, and last week I ended up having to work Saturday which threw a monkey wrench in to stuff... Even on Sundays I end up busy with things-- this Sunday I have my sister and brother-in-law coming over for some BBQ and boardgames (Geek Off, Dixit, and Gloom this week)

still breathing! Actually the important part (well-- I guess breathing is important) is that I am still writing chapter 7-- I wanted to restart the journals at the same time I post the next chapter-- thus that delay-- this chapter is REALLY being difficult to write-- My goal is to finish it before new years.

Hey, your comic's website appears to have expired.

Please get it back up and running so I can link people to it?
