Hey guys, I'm taking some time for myself. I wrote out a message to everyone reading the second draft, so I hope you will read it. I'm really, really sorry but I was talking to my dear friend yesterday and she helped me realize I'm experiencing massive burn-out. Continuing to push the second draft out is not working for me...it's all explained in my little note, it's posted as a new chapter. Again, I'm so sorry, I hate leaving things hanging...but I just gotta take a break from this draft. 
          	
          	I hope you'll understand. I love you guys and I'll be back soon :)

Hey guys! If you didn't know, I run a writing blog called Making It Up! I post articles all about writing and I also do author interviews/spotlights! Today I posted two fun things:
          
          1) An article about writing historical fantasy. 
          2) An interview with @OptimisticDragonfly 
          
          I would really, really appreciate if you took a peek at my blog. Maybe you can find something helpful on there, maybe you can find a new favorite author!

@Simply_Hiraeth nah, I googled it now. You're right about the interlibrary loan thing but I have to call or talk in person. I literally have to psyche myself up to order food from people, so we'll see how this goes XD. Thanks again, I mean it. Can't wait for your next update. The last one was so freaking cool...

Woah, what kind of miracle is this? 
          
          I wrote Chapter 29 of ATCF today! All in one sitting! Some sort of demon possessed me, I guess, and the chapter is out! It's definitely the most action-packed one yet. There are flying ships battling, Gazala Kateb, an autocart with wings, some broken magic...and a big new change for Gazala and Caris! 
          
          I've shortened my outline, rearranged some things, and am working on finishing this story up. If all goes to plan, there will be 41 chapters and an epilogue. So...yay! Hopefully my mojo is back! 
          
          Thanks for reading! :D

A new chapter of ATCF is up! 
          
          I've been in a bit of a creative slump with this new draft...well, I don't know if it's actually a slump? The problem is I have a lot of new ideas, a lot of things I want to work with, but it's hard to do when half the story is already out there...so I'm just working slowly. There are a lot of exciting and cool things I'm working on and sometimes you just get pulled a little bit in too many directions. I'll figure it out.  
          
          Anyway. I'm rambling. 
          
          I hope you enjoy the new chapter! It's called "Little Thieves" and it's a little bit creepy, a little bit funny!

Creative slumps suck. But, just know there are so many of us out here that truly appreciate this story and are so excited to see what unfolds next!  I started reading the first draft but switched to your second draft instead so I’m technically reading it for the first time there. Keep up the amazing work!

Guys, I'm so sorry, but I can't update this weekend. School and life has been super stressful lately and I've barely gotten anything written. I hope to find time this week to write and get some ATCF chapters out to you! But I'm drowning in work and homework and all sorts of nonsense...you know how it gets sometimes. Bleh. 
          
          Anyway, thank you so much for your patience. I want to give you the best story possible and I really thank you for waiting on me. 
          
          :)
