I have been absent from here for (counts on fingers) about four months. No real excuse, other than I was dealing with a lot of stress in my day job and in other Real Life (tm) situations that just pretty much suppressed my writing, both non-fiction and fiction.
Apologies to all. I'll try not to let it happen again.
I am returning to the writing mode in small steps. Tonight's step is to post this apology and a couple of other things here.
I plan to kick the fiction writing off in a day or so.
Hang in there, word counts will start building again soon.
Thanks for your patience.
