Hi Everyone, I'm Fine...How Are You?

Yes, there was a major earthquake in New Zealand (where I live) over the weekend. And, no, I wasn't affected. I live in Wellington and the epicentre was in Christchurch, hundreds of kilometres away. There's been a fair bit of damage to poor old Ch-ch, but perhaps miraculously, no fatalaties.

(Chillingly, my brother had been working in Christchurch for some time—but he returned home to Wellington just a week before the disaster.)

In other news…well, sorry, there is no other news. Fact is, there just hasn't been a lot of time in my life for writing in the last six months or so. I'm engaged to be married to a wonderful Japanese lady, I'm planning a big overseas trip (to Japan), I'm getting steadily more used to domesticity…and I just have other priorities these days.

Which is not to say that I don't want to go back to the story. I want to see it finished as much as you do—perhaps more so. But, well, I don't know how soon that's going to happen. I'm sorry.
