Chapter 15 is on it's way, I promise. I've written pretty much the whole chapter except one part. Sadly, Harry and Draco are NOT cooperating. I've written their encounter about 5 times...
Tp help you forgive me for being so slow posting chapters, I thought I'd let you know what's been going on in my life...
I started refinancing my house in October. It finally closed in April. Part of that is going to pay for work being done on my house: wiring the garage for electricity, painting the house and repairing the squirrel-eaten trim, etc.
My job changed in February. The old job taking calls at a help desk got bid out to a single vendor... I applied to that vendor and got accepted, but right about then I got an opportunity to advance. I ended up applying for a new job, as a computer help desk manager. Now, instead of being able to write between calls, I have to lead by example, and get stuff ready for the team. It is a brand new service desk, and I am creating all the procedures. Working on average 10 hours a day, sometimes 12 or more.
Got a crown (tooth) in March.
I changed roommates in April. My new roommate is great, but another transition.
All of that, doing my taxes, dealing with health care, etc.
I stopped writing for about a month, but am writing again, making progress.
Now, rather than take up time and space in this venue, I've decided to create a twitter account for those who want updates on where I am in the chapter, or what I'm struggling with, or RL stuff as it relates or hinders the writing. If you don't care about that, you can stay here and get only the chapters. If you like updates, I'll do my best to keep you apprised of progress.
The address is ImUpToNoGood_ (note the underscore at the end. Someone else is apparantly also up to no good.) Here's the link.
The Chapter is on its way. Soon.
