Down off Your Pillar, Back on Your Feet.

I owe you an apology.

I never meant to abandon Towards Dawn. I don't think I ever anticipated just how much effort and time it would take to continue, nor how mind-bogglingly popular it was going to be. Since writing the last day waaaaay back in March, uni got intensely busy and I also started picking up more freelance writing work.

And I would have been content to just let it die, but two things happened. Firstly, to this day, people are still commenting on that final day as well as sending me emails, pleading me to continue with the journey. I don't think I could have ever convinced myself that this was interesting to anyone, regardless of how many page hits I was getting, without these comments. So thanks! Secondly, version 1.8 of Minecraft came out this past week and has rekindled my love of Minecraft something shocking.

So here is my promise to you: come mid-November, when I am no longer plagued with this thesis, I will climb down from my pillar, place a "Day Forty-Two" sign, and continue on my way.

How does that sound? If you can forgive me for abandoning you for so long, I'd like to have you follow me again.
