Bug and I talk about it often, and try writing in fits and spurts.
Those that have followed us closest might remember we've been dealing with things like both of us having pain issues (joint disease for me, while Bug was diagnosed with MS a couple yrs ago). So there's the stress and anxiety and depression with that. About 2.5 yrs ago we moved to our first house we bought.
I know there is lot sof stuff between then and now, but to be honest, I can't remember. Heck, if you asked me to list our stressors just inthe past month, I'd not remember half of them, let alone put them in chronological order. Its just like before we have finished with stressor A, stressor B hits us. We finally take care of A, only to have C hit us, before we are finished with B, and so on.
I'll have to write about the current shit we'll dealing with for anyone who is interested, but not now as i have to get to bed very soon and that needs to be flocked anyway.
Anyway, back to ABP...
For a while, I had been resolving to get the current book finished... and since is was so long since an update, i figured that since people would likely need to re-read to remember WTF was going on, I might aw well just make it one big update - like "update: book finished!" yeah, that worked well, didn't it? I mean, just give myself an impossibly big task, with no positive feedback as I went along, while life continues to throw shit at me... why i thought that was a good idea, again, i don't know.
So, new idea!
i'm going to go back to posting updates- even if just a few pages at a time. I can't promise they will be regular, but I should actually make some progress instead of just falling into despair at my ongoing failure, and hopefully prevent any further encounters of "warning: abandoned fic".

One of the most depressing things I've encountered recently was a review for ABP that described it as "abandoned". Its not, although i understand why people would think so.
