Just popping in with my usual excuses.  OTL

I realize FM has now officially been a year without an update.  :faint:  While I am super upset (with myself) about this, it's unfortunately going to have to wait a little longer; I'm trying to finish crochet projects for Christmas gifts this week, so all my free time for the next 8 days is going to go to that.  After the holiday is over, I'll have time to sit and push out the chapter.

This has not been a good year for me.  I've had health issue after health issue, on top of money troubles and serious problems with depression.  Some days I wonder how I'm even making it.  Hubs is due to graduate in the spring, so I'm hoping that'll help with the money issues, and I've been to doctors for my health problems as well as depression...bleh.  2014.  Please end soon.

I really am sorry for my inactivity in the past year.  Life just seems to pile it on thick for me lately, and somedays I feel like I'm drowning in the day to day.  I'll make it somehow, I hope.

So, as you've probably noticed, I haven't posted the latest Follow Me chapter.  Here's why.

I printed out the typed chapter on Monday, September 29th, with the intention of proofing the heck out it.  Tuesday, I'd make corrections and start on typing Chapter 41.  Wednesday, I'd finish typing 41, print, and start proofing.  Thursday, I'd finish proofing, make corrections.  Friday, I planned to take off because Smash Bros came out, and over the weekend, I planned to do the cross-reference proofing between Chapters 40 and 41 to make sure it's all coherent, and hey, maybe start on Chapter 42 if I was feeling adventurous.  All that activity would've lead to a Monday-Tuesday of last week release.

Tuesday morning, September 30th, I came down with a head cold from freaking Hades.  I could barely sit up without feeling dizzy.  I murdered probably a box and a half of tissue that day alone.  I made mistakes all day (like moving the laundry from the washer to the dryer but not starting it).  I was a complete and total cotton-headed mess.  This went on for DAYS.  DAYS, man.  It was all I could do to stay conscious sometimes.

Why is it that the second I start making plans, I get freaking ill???  ""OTL

So yeah.  Total immune system sabotage.  Thankfully, I'm much better now, but unfortunately, I'm a little busy.  This past week, I've been working on finishing up some crochet stuff for my daughter's Halloween costume, and this week I've got to make a hat for my nephew for Halloween, and then after that I should be able to work in peace.  Assuming I don't get sick again.  OTL  *knocks on wood*

So yeah, I apologize for releasing the Chapter preview hype image and then totally disappearing for two weeks.  Was not my intention at ALL.

Follow Me Chapter 40 Preview PART DOS by SakuraMota
Follow Me Chapter 40 Preview PART DOS
I'M TOTALLY WORKING ON IT :iconohmygodplz: :iconexcitedplz:

After a stupidly long hiatus, I'm finally dusting off Chapter 40 and getting it typed today.  I'm almost finished typing it now (have about 3 handwritten pages left to go), and then comes the lengthy editing process.  After that, I'll get 41 typed up and edited, then I have to do cross-editing because these two chapters heavily relate to one another.  After that, it's release time, baby! :iconyeahplz:  When will that be?  Dunno.  Depends on how long everything I just said needs to be done takes.  So for now, I'll just have to ask you to continue to be patient and please understand.  :iconpleaseunderstandplz:


What you should note about this preview: Look over on the right side where the scrolly bar should be.  You see dat page count?  Dat delicious page 1 of 12?  Dats for you gaiz.  Expect the whole chapter to be about 14-15 pages total.  Word count is almost at 6000 atm with several more pages left to type.  No idea how this stacks up to previous chapters.  But it's, like, really long.  So yay.  :B  In the past, I segmented the chapters much smaller, and tbh, had I stuck with my old formatting, this chapter would really be three chapters.  But, as I've said in the past (I think?), from here on out, the chapters will be longer because if I segmented it, I feel it would drag out the chapter count unnecessarily.

So, until then, I'll see you all soon!

Hey, long time no see! You've had your wisdom teeth out, right? Is it normal to have trouble opening your mouth two days after the surgery? (Also, what's your 3DS Friend Code? I have New Leaf and I wanna play with someone :D)

It's normal to be a little stiff for a while, yeah. If it doesn't improve after a week, I'd inform your doctor, though.

Sorry for the late reply. My mom's going to call them tomorrow, since my teeth still hurt :( :(

My Friend Code is 0576-5807-4247, and my Mii's name is Sara (spelled without the H, unlike my actual name, because reasons). What's your Mii's name?
