TL;DR: Life is continuing to happen. In fact, this has been a very rough year for me.
Relatedly, I burned out on C&D2 not once, but multiple times. In fact, for a couple weeks I was so burned out on every form of writing I wrote nothing whatsoever.
But currently, things are getting better! I am still recovering from the last C&D2 burnout, and I am presently working on a different project. So…
The bad news: C&D2 is probably not going to happen this year.
The good news: I am rapidly working on a new project. I don’t want to give any hard and fast dates, but it’s coming along!
What is this new project? Still a secret, but it’s a similar style to C&D, although it’s not a LitRPG and it’s WAAAAY darker. Somewhere in the NA range.
After it, I intend to finish C&D2, this time with a much happier attitude towards writing and success, and then we’ll probably be going between the two series for a while. But right now, I’m concentrating on getting this new project finished without burning out on it, too.
