Hey everyone, it's author-san. Now depending on which platform you're reading this from, I might be still be named Shesmu or might have already rebranded to Yorth. This was done so as to differentiate myself from my character, and not give the impression that my story is a wish-fulfillment or a self-insert one.
Anyway, enough of that, we both that that's not what you're interested in so let's discuss the elephant in the room. The hiatus. Is it finally over? Are we finally gonna continue this volume that should have ended almost eight months ago? Well, the answer to that is a bit complicated.
In the past year, many things happened. I went to Japan for example and drew a very trashy one-shot manga. I started working with a few friends of mine on a video game (A visual novel), and that was really fun. I got to know lots of cool and talented artists. However, even as those days went by and those events happened around me, there was a not single morning where I woke and didn't think about Re: Sword Emperor, about all the readers that really loved the story and wanted it to continue. But, for some reason, I couldn't find it in me to sit down, continue writing the chapter, and post it.
So, I decided to do a bit of editing. I thought at first that it's just going to be some minor edits. Some grammar mistakes here and there, typos, sentence structure, nothing too crazy. But the moment I opened that google doc and started typing those words, I soon knew that it's not going to be so simple. 16k words later, and my initial impression was confirmed. I still haven't even reached the time travel part. All of this work was basically just a backstory. But it felt so good, so right.
The characters I created, the events that happened in those 16 thousand words felt much more fleshed out than anything that happened in the main story. That's how I knew that I found something magical, something that would have been worth the wait. The wait that spanned for too long.
So, it's in that spirit that I'm writing this post. To say that I'm still alive, that I'm still writing, trying to make something that you would love to read.
