Wow, almost a month of radio silence. I wish I could say I'd spent that month working fervently on Outlands or something constructive, but nah ^^; Real Life took over for awhile, and is still in full swing. Nothing bad, quite the contrary; I landed a very interesting (if challenging) new job, which means I am FINALLY out of the madhouse where I'd worked for an embarrassing number of years. The advantage of the madhouse is that I'd kind of given up doing a good job against all the odds my company had stacked against me, so I did not hesitate to goof off for an hour every day to write or play around with fanfiction. Now I have a real job again, as well as a two-year-old kid and a fierce two-week-long head cold, my writing output has faltered down to nothing. The fact that I was playing Brutal Legend on the PS3 has NOTHING to do with my
laziness writer's block, nothing I tell you! Besides, I finished it now.
I'm posting the second arc of Outlands, whcih I'd written before the blackout started. Posting will come in fits and starts as I pick up something that resembles a writing schedule again (I hope).
Crap, kid woke up and is climbing the walls. Lemme go post this chapter, and then Mal over and out.
