Hi there, this is Laine speaking as herself and not just jotting down another chapter of a story. I'm coming on to explain why there has been a dearth of new stories lately.
Over the last couple of weeks I've been involved in several local community events, and helping to coordinate the memorial service for the Trangender Day of Remembrance, where all of the names of transgender people from around the globe who have been murdered as a result of being who they are over the year (that are reported, at least) are recited as a solemn remembrance and a reminder of how far behind much of the world is (a goodly number of the names were in first world countries).
This has occupied a lot of my free time and just about all of my free energy to the point where I've taken ill over the last few days as a result of kind of burning out. Today, I started working on new content for Empyrean Dreams, and you should start seeing new material again come Friday.
So, I apologize for the interruption, and promise that it won't be permanent. The tales of Lotus station will continue!
