My apologies, but I have been very busy this past week and haven't even checked my AP email. (Well, technically, I just checked it and saw unread mails, but I really need some sleep and decided to write this general note of explanation rather than spend half an hour or more reading/answering.)
I think I got a page or two done in the next chapter last Monday or Tuesday, but that was about it. Writing for pleasure has to take a back seat to real life, and at the moment, it's looking like Thursday may be the next time I have a noticeable break my schedule. Baring the unexpected, I'll try to answer emails and restart writing then.
In the meantime, sorry for the delay.
