Actually, my health is fine, but I have been extremely busy at work with limited writing time as I tried to plot myself out of a corner my characters had worked themselves into. I have finally (I think) gotten them straightened out and am starting to make progress on moving the story in the direction I wanted. I'm not going to promise when I will begin posting the next sections, but wanted to let everyone know that progress is being made. I know the ending of the story, but side-trips, twists, and turns had me going in a different and less interesting direction.
Thanks for your patience and thanks for reading.
