Restraint report

It's been quiet on the Restraint front for longer than I'd like, but I've been working very hard and steadily on Chapter 38. It's another linchpin chapter and it's taken me a long time to find the heart of it, so in my usual noodling way, I've overwritten it by at least a factor of two, and am at last homing in on the final thing.

Since my wonderful beta, [personal profile] kis, will be travelling abroad over the next two or three weeks, I have to decide whether to hold off posting, or to post without the benefit of her wisdom.

Either way, I wanted to let people who are reading the story know that though I continue to be the slowest writer in the world, it is not because I've lost interest, or lost my way. Restraint is very much alive, and close to my heart, and nearly done.

Very happy to hear it - in your corner, cheering your muse as always. Tell your beta to enjoy her holiday.

The most exciting part is that she'll be enjoying part of it with me! She and her husband are coming all the way from Glasgow in just a couple of days and are spending four days here in Portland with me and my family and friends. I'm very excited!

I imagine we'll discuss writing more than a little while she's here.

And thank you for your cheerleading. I appreciate it very much!

Oh, fun! Is this the friend you were doing all the work to get the house ready for?

Yup! kispexi2. Seemed the least I could do after all the truly epic beta-ing she's done for me. :D

Actually, we go way back, to Firefly fandom days, and I've visited her in the UK a couple of times. I'm really excited about showing her around my neck of the woods.

Thanks for the update! I actually reread Ch 37 again last night to stave off withdrawls, haha.

Looking forward to the next, whenever it comes!

Thank you!

I re-read Chapter 37 myself last night to make sure I'm still well-oriented in the story's timeline. I loved Marchbanks all over again. :D

Thank you so much for the update. Looking forward to the continuing saga of Tristan and John, as always, but especially so for the next chapter, because chapter 38 is going to be a happy chapter, right? New house, new beginning ...

Happy, sexy, romantic. I'm having fun writing it.
