November Means Novel

Hello to my players.

I don't think this is going to come as a terrible shock.  I am going to put my campaign on hold.

Please do not think this is in any way a permanent thing.  I have been posting for long enough now, and we have had two previous pauses, so I think when I say that we will pick this campaign up again, that will be believed.  All it is that at the moment, I need space somewhere in my life, and I'm afraid this is going to be one of the areas I can find it.

Things have been intense since my mother passed; and work was stressful before.  I'm finding the job at the moment is taking up more and more of my time, so that as I come in first thing in the morning - particularly on Mondays - I am two to three hours before I can even open the campaign.

At night, I'm trying to edit my book ... with a view to getting that off the ground sometime before Christmas, circa the second week of December.  I want to get focused; and that means cutting down on the various things that unfocus me.  Pushing back the D&D campaign means making more time for me during the day, which makes for a better relaxed mindset when the day comes to an end and I can work on the bigger picture.  So I'm sorry fellas.

I know you support me (you've said so often enough before).  I want you guys to know I support you, too.  I am anxious to get you to your land, to get Ahmet and Lukas up in levels so they can get henchmen and stuff, and to keep the campaign running.  You guys have been great, and I appreciate it.

Janos seems to have done the same thing Silvius did ... just sort of moved out of the picture.  I can't blame him; its a lot of work to keep this going, as we all know.  I suggest we all give it some time, before trying to get back to the game.  I'm thinking first week of December, but that is going to depend on how my artistic endeavor goes.

I will keep you posted, as always, and I will probably be writing a few posts a week on the main blog.  My time has been suffering all over, and the main blog shows it as much as here (ah, to be able to post every day again).

Okay, take care, have a good start to your winter.  I'll keep in touch, and revive this thing when I've got bandwidth again.

Good luck.

I hope you find plenty of time to work on your editing so you can get that book out on time!

Good luck, I'll be ready when you are.

Stay dry Ahmet, Sandy is starting to hammer us in my neck of the woods. I hope you're not close to shore tonight.

Power is still out but it's back on at work... ah, light, heat, and hot water, how I missed you!

No one injured but the house took a pounding. And another storm coming this week. Whee!
