I got an email asking me if i'd stopped writing the story. my reply was:
"no, i haven't given up. but the next chapter was badly written. i wrote it again, and it was still bad. it's not writer's block, because i wrote chapter 8 and i think it's ok, and i've started on chapter 9. but i have to sort out chapter 7 before i can post anything else."
so i hope i have something ready soon.we'll see
