Announcement to all my wonderful readers: 

Since I started writing Survivin’ Skyrim back in September, I’ve been playing as Morien and posting about her adventures twice a week, with fortunately very few interruptions.  It’s now the month of May, and while I’m delighted that my character has yet to see her final death, I feel that it’s time for a break.  The last thing I want is to burn out before her story ends.

Therefore, the blog will be put on hold for a few weeks here at Chapter 60.   I realize I’m leaving the story on a bit of a cliffhanger, but hopefully all of you will find it in your hearts to forgive me.  The site will still be accessible during this time, so feel free to visit, tell your friends about the blog, or leave a comment.

Finally, as a writer it’s been amazing to see all the encouragement and appreciation, and for that I thank you.  I’m also curious to see how Morien’s story ultimately ends since I haven’t played through all of it yet, so in the immortal words of the Terminator — I’LL BE BACK. 

Take care and see you in a few weeks!
