Discharge?

Hi.

A long time ago, I think it was before spring equinox, but I'm not sure, I send the first part of a story to Jamie. A story that in best case could be used for Clan of the Cats as more than a fan-fic.
He wrote back asking for a synopsis and background story, and I gave him that.
Then the second part... well, I have it written down on paper somewhere, I think...
The third (and final) part can only be "guestimated" from the synopsis, even by me.

Thing is, I said I would "soon send [Jamie] the second part"... and that was at least 5 months ago.
In other words, I've broken my word.

Grounds for a dishonorable discharge from the Knights?

Type quickly.

Thus is my advice. (Realize this, too. 5 months for some publishers would be an insanely quick turnaround time...)

What Silver said.

I know these things take time, besides real life invades the creative process like a germ sometimes. Doing something you said you would do is important, but unfortunately circumstances are not always kind to our aspirations. The Order is not about being perfect, at least I don

Well then. I shall put more effort into getting the story to an ending.

I can't and won't make any promice of when you'll get it Jamie, but I'll put my best effort to it being soon.
