Well, since it's a new year, I figured I should let everyone know the status of The Wanderers
I haven't started revising it yet. I'm just not inspired by LOTR at the moment and I think this would be the absolutely worst time to try to make myself work on the story. I've started writing a lot of DC Comics fic (sector_2814
), and I have to honestly say it's the most fun I've had writing in a very long time. When I started out writing LOTR I had that sense of fun, but the last few months of working on Wanderers
had turned into a chore that I dreaded (and it showed in the quality of the chapters I ended up posting). So I think the story needs to be set aside until I can love working on it again.
And I do
want to work on it again. And finish it. I've spent 3+ years working on it, and I don't want to throw that all away. And I think it's a story that is worth finishing (though some days I will adamantly tell you it is "Teh Suck!"). It's just going to have to wait until my head and heart are in the right place to re-visit Middle-Earth.
I will post again when I start revising.
Thanks for your patience, and I'm really sorry the story has gone through all these delays and missteps.
