Sometimes real life gets in the way of other things, like writing smutty stories on the Internet for free. In my case, an unexpected visit to the hospital, followed by an unexpected - and extended - stay by some of my family at my house for the past few weeks.
Writing was not one of my priorities during this time.
Anyway, I'm slowly getting back into my stories. The next chapter of "Playing Ball", I hope, will be up in the next week or so. Assuming, of course, that pesky 'real life' shit doesn't get in the way again.
Thanks for your patience, and hopefully your understanding.
