Yes, and yes.
And yes, it's still going damned slowly.
I remember when I was reliably writing a book a year. And now it's going on three years. I don't blame the folks who have given up waiting. Hopefully they will return when I finally do bring out the next volume.
For what it's worth, I am back to making myself write a little bit each night - even if it's only a little. I just finished Chapter 36, and 184K words.
