Okay, so I think it's about time I give you all another update.
Basically, work on DsD has slowed significantly over the past month, but it hasn't stopped completely. I'm about 75% done with the Gray Wool area, and all that's left is a bit of loot, spawners, and detail-work. I got a bit burnt-out working on that area, so I moved away from Minecraft for a while, going back to, yet again, Warframe. I came back about a week ago, and decided to work on revamping some of the old areas, starting with the Monument. I'm happy with how things are coming so far, but progress is going quite slowly. School and work are still taking up a lot of my time, as is the novel project I just picked up, so progress will likely continue to be slow.
I continually feel back about how little I'm saying to you guys about what's going on. I wish I could have real news to share, and some day I will, but for now I just need to echo what I've said countless times before: I have not given up on DsD.

I have not given up on DsD.
A good way to regain inspiration/interest in continuing mapping is playing other CTM maps. Of course I have never released a map but I may be wrong, but it worked for me on previous projects. Good luck.
