Back in my first thread I mentioned that I was unsure of whether or not I would want to serialize my writing, and stick to a schedule. Since then I've basically done what was advised, apart from the not posting, I kinda wrote a backlog. I was waiting to submit my serial, because I guess I still wasn't sure. I've gotten something like twenty thousand words plus done in the last month and a half, which is still weird considering how slow I'd been in the past. Not that I attribute it all to the serialization, I got way more than that done in the two months prior.
But in the end I've come full circle and decided on doing what I originally talked about, and just writing the thing away from the eyes of others. The decision was made in no small part because life has really begun to intervene (this from the guy who didn't slow down after a week in the hospital). There's school and house-work to be done, and somewhat urgently at that.
Ultimately I realized that this isn't what I ought to be doing right now. You guys are awesome, but at this time in my life I need to focus more intently on spiritual and intellectual growth, not my fiction. So thank you all, for how amazing your dedication to your craft is, and all of the experience that you accidentally or intentionally share in your posts.

I think it's polite to say goodbye when one disappears. Dirge is now offline, sorry to anyone at all interested.
