Annnnnd with our usual quota on the plate, our computer ate the chapter file. All of it. About half an hour ago.

Which means that we're going to have to rewrite the damn thing.

From scratch.

Guys, as badly as we wanted to get this to you before we headed out on vacation, it's just not going to happen. There's no way we can recreate a chapter this size in less than 24 hours when we have a ton of last-minute running-around to do. Just zero chance.

I'm totally heartbroken about this. Looks like we'll be posting this next weekend if we can get it finished in time. If all else fails, it'll come out first instead of ATU the following weekend.

It would happen the week we're leaving for vacation, huh?

Sorry, guys.

Rest assured, the chapter's coming, but I got in late from work tonight and then there were some computer issues. Not enough to stop us from posting the weekend. It may be coming to you late Saturday night or early Sunday, but you'll have it before the weekend is out.

Forgive the delay, all!

Yep, we're better. Yep, the hiatus is over! Yep, the chapter will be out later today.

More news once I get a little sleep and wake up again.

We looooove you all! And thank you for the well wishes! They honestly did help!

But it looks as though it's going to be necessary. I'm into my second week of the pneumonia, starting to improve by degrees, but now we've run into the problem that happens to all couples. Anissa has it now. *sigh* There have only been less than 1,000 words written since the beginning of last week. So I'm going to go ahead and call it now, as much as it kills me to do it. We're going to have to take another week while Anissa gets better because the current chapter has a huge action sequence in it that's going to need both of us fully on-board to manage.

Sorry, guys. I'm going to say look for the next post from us on September 1. Until then, we'll be trying to get well and plot to have things up and rolling by then.
kalalanekent: (Lois :: Asleep)
Yes, it was truly pneumonia. Ended up in the ER last night straight from work. So, yes, no chapter this week. We're going to keep working working for the rest of this week, but there's no chance of having it in before bedtime at all. Sorry, guys.
kalalanekent: (Lois :: Smoking)
Well, the doctor confirmed it the other day. I have walking pneumonia. I guess it was only a matter of time, as it's been going around the job like wildfire. So, due to the fact that I'm fighting this plus still working a full week on top of it, the chapter is going to be delayed a week while I try to get myself back in working order. I'm literally coming home, eating dinner, showering, passing out for ten hours, getting up an hour before work, working eight hours, repeat.

So yeah, no chapter this week. We'll be back with Love and Other Headaches next Saturday unless this cold gets worse next week. I'll keep you on stand-by.

*wibbles*
kalalanekent: (Lois :: Caught)
Okay, so there will be no chapter this holiday weekend. Anissa's birthday's coming up next weekend and she's requested that we just work on easy projects, which include working on future fic and making changes and adaptions to notes. And this gives us time to plot what happens next in ATU a little tighter.

However, you will have a chapter for you before we leave for her three-day birthday mini-vacation next Friday.

Sorry, guys, but who was I to refuse a birthday request from my co-author?

Love you all!

Actually, twisted as it sounds, they're usually good days for me. My luck system is entirely backwards. I actually LIKE black cats to cross my path.

Also, as I've been remiss in posting it, but not saying it, happiest birthday to my gorgeous and all-too-wonderous [livejournal.com profile] januaried. I looove you, bb, and I hope this year is so damn good that you won't know what hit you. *tacksnuggles*

The updates on the FIL aren't too many and sad, so I'm avoiding it for now. Needless to say, he's going to be back in the hospital for a bit. Now it's just a case of finding the balance in our lives again. I just hope that they can get him some help there that we aren't able to do here. Maybe, just maybe, they'll get him to try to care about himself since we can't get through to him.

In happier news, we're going to go ahead with a projected start date of the 28th with Love and Other Headaches, especially since we have the first chapter going so well. It's not going to be enough to post tomorrow and ATU is next week, so yeah. In two weeks. *keeps fingers crossed that RL doesn't screw that up* I think the opening scene is absolutely adorable and I'm sure Jason REALLY wants to throttle Tim for the awful name he's been saddled with until that moment. Oh, Batclan, how nuts you drive the Supers. XD

YAY! Now off to work!

Guess what's back in the works? Across the Universe will be back on its posting schedule as of Saturday. The next chapter is nearly finished. :D

Now to get Love and Other Headaches back in gear and we'll be full-steam ahead!

<- To the left, a spoiler for our [livejournal.com profile] 12days_of_clois, which should be out in the next two days. I think I'm just going to continue to call the universe as a whole 'Little Secrets' because it's less confusing. This one is set after Heirs by three years, making the twins just passed 19.

Next on the list, finishing the next chapter of ATU, which has been started for a bit now. And then, finally, the premiere of Love and Other Headaches. Expect the pair out by the first of the year. ;)

Annnnd I'm about to do something completely unprecedented. Something I REALLY didn't want to do.

For the last week, I've been fighting what feels like a strain of the flu and it's pretty much kept me out of work and offline. Miserable from head to toe and just barely feeling like I'm existing. Well, I'm just now back at work and trying to get back to a normal routine, nevermind that I've been going to bed early and sleeping really late. If I'm lucky, I'll be back to 100% by the weekend.

However, Anissa started falling prey to it this evening. And it's hitting her hard, where most colds and viruses don't really stick to her.

The bad part? We've only gotten a little bit of ATU underway because she's been having to look after me this week and I've been no help whatsoever. We know where it's going and what needs to be done for it, but there's no way that we're going to catch up in time. NONE. So, we're forced to hold off for a second week in a row.

No one worry. This isn't any kind of sign that we're stopping anything for good, just that we've both been in a really bad way and need the chance to rest and recoop before we dive back in. I don't expect that we'll miss another deadline and we plan to try to have the first chapter of Love and Other Headaches to you,then, as well, but it will most certainly be out by the end of the month.

As always, we love you all and thanks for understanding! We'll be back just as soon as we can!

I just got a text telling me that we're going to be receiving 700 pieces of freight nightly this week at the job.

For those of you that don't work retail, that's a lot. Especially if you only have a four-man crew to work it and then backstock it at night and you're part of that crew. Don't fool yourselves that BB&B has a separate cleaning and stock crew. It's all done by the employees you see working through the store. WE are the ones that do all of it.

I tell you this because there's NO WAY that we're going to manage an Across the Universe chapter this week with me under the gun like this. We also have the opener to Love and Other Headaches to get finished and to beta and I don't know if we'll manage that either, even with it more than a third done.

Start week on LaOH, BTW, is being stated as November 19. It would be sooner, but all of the RL stuff keeps mucking with us. But rest assured, the muses are wide-awake and talking. It's just the fact that I'm not home enough to keep the ball rolling as much as I'd like.

So, yeah. No ATU this week, but it shall return next Saturday. LaOH is set to roll out on Saturday the 19th.

[livejournal.com profile] saavikam77, we're still full-steam-ahead on our stuff as it's bouncing back and forth. And it's the only thing keeping me sane. *smishes*
