Yup, still alive. And writing again, more to the point.
Went through another long patch where I couldn't see any way forward. But I've made good progress in the last couple of weeks (now at 77,190 words, or 440K if you prefer), and I have to say that I'm getting real close to the end.
No promises, but let me say that if I can keep up the current rate, the chapter could be finished in two or three weeks. But don't quote me on that. :)
