Rumors of the end of The Quest

I'm not sure why, but there has been some rumor that I've abandoned "The Quest" completely. Nothing could be further from the truth (actually, many things could be much further from the truth, but the phrase has such a nice ring to it!).

I have significantly reduced my chess playing of late, but real soon now I'm going to update my sidebar with all the new Knights and petition BDK for official reinstatement.

Stay tuned (yeah, right!).

Maybe this is too much of the "less aggressive" part?

A month between posts is certainly not a program of study that is at risk of being too intense! I have been playing a bit and solving a few problems here and there on CTS, but nothing too structured. I really must get back on track.

I have not quit yet, believe it or not. I should look back through the records of the Knights Errant to see if anyone has ever staged a comeback from a stall like this one.

New year... new plan... old story!

The year has ended, and I've not make the planned amount of progress on the Circles. Oh well, many other good things happened so perhaps it's not a bad thing after all.

I have spent a fair amount of time following the blogs of the rest of the Knights. A dedicated bunch by any standard and full of keen insights. I wonder how you all manage to find the time and energy to make so much progress.

I think I will need to develop a somewhat less aggressive plan if I'm to have any chance of success. Maybe I shouldn't make it quite so structured. This time of the year is notorious for the development of plans that die in mid-February so I will resist.

I'd like to spend a couple of hours a week practicing/studying and an hour or so playing OTB or on FICS. After all, it's a game not a life. I may get kicked out of the Knights with such a slack attitude!
