Where the chapter at?

What’s up what’s up guys.

Just wanted to give you a situation update. Devshard recently got hit by something called “Bicep Tendinitis”. If you’re not sure what that means, I was also in the same boat, so I’m just going to share some quotes from Dev:

Apr 25: “Man. I really wrecked my shoulder. My entire arm is screaming in pain.”
Apr 27: “Still can’t lift it out to the side, but it doesn’t spasm with pain from every tiny movement.”

As my layman brain understands it, Dev has an inflamed bicep tendon that causes him a lot of pain every time he moves his arm. Unfortunately, this is one of those “wait and see” situations. Dev is taking anti-inflammatory medicine, resting, and praying to the 1001 Hindu Gods that it gets better ASAP.

We really appreciate every single one of you who continues to read Rise, and we hope to publish new chapters for you to enjoy soon!

Where We’ve Been

What’s up what’s up everyone! I meant to post this earlier, but here’s what’s been stopping us from posting chapters recently.

It’s been kind of a shit week or so for Dev, who is the only editor on Rise and without whose work much of (some would say “all of”) the magic we do with our chapters would be lost. Someone stole the license plates off his car and put it on a stolen Mazda that got pulled over. It’s a whole thing. Dev’s been running around between the DMV and two different police stations to try and get all the paperwork filed correctly so he can get my license plates back. And also not be a part of whatever other crimes the dude driving the stolen car with Dev’s plates was a part of.

And this is coming at a spectacular time for him because he’s supposed to be studying for a major exam for his medical degree. When’s the exam? Even Dev wishes he knew. It’s been postponed like 4 times because of covid, a flood, more covid, basically a whole host of issues. The more the exam gets postponed, the longer dev has to keep studying so he can remember information.

So that’s why there haven’t been chapters. Dev is currently living in his own personal hell and hasn’t had a lot of time to edit between studying, the stolen license plate, contemplating suicide by stethoscope, and irl commitments. Sorry that we haven’t kept you guys updated. Even if we couldn’t maintain our release rate, we should have notified you about what’s going on with us. We hope to figure out most of these issues relatively soon as get back on a regular schedule for you guys. Thank you for sticking with us this long!
