Dear lord has it been awhile. At least it's not a year this time, so I hope that's progress. Anyway. I'm going to give a blunt and honest answer about why I haven't posted. I Lost Muse. It's not anyone's fault. It's simply because of how old the story is now. I started it in my senior year, now I'm in my second year of college. I'm simply not the same man I was. I'm not giving up on this story, however, so I took some necessary steps. First, I'm rereading this whole story to get a better picture of my plan. Second, I'm erasing that other story I posted, I think we can all agree it wasn't my best work. Last, I'm making a detailed timeline of my story. This is important. It gives me a clear path to follow, but I can add anything to that path as I go. I'm going to put in the effort so I don't make this a cookie cutter of most Naruto stories. Thanks for your support.
