I’ve been MIA for a good long while lately. I’m sorry about that, and I’m sorry for leaving y’all hanging, but real life happens and when it does, you have to choose what to do, and sometimes, it’s not a pretty choice. So I did, and I probably didn’t choose right, but it was the best I could do at the time.
Now I’m unraveling the mess I made, and it’s gonna take me a while, I think, but slowly but surely, things are happening the right way now. I still have a long way to go. There are broken links everywhere, because I let shit expire and I didn’t keep up with it.
You might be wondering why I’m posting this right now, when I really don’t have any new news to tell you. Partially because this is my blog and I can do what I want on it. Haha. But also because I feel it’s important to know where I’m at in order to understand why there’s nothing new to tell you.
I nuked this site and started over this week. So you’ll see a ton of broken links and images for a while. The older images, I probably won’t be able to find again. They were probably on my old computer. So older journal entries, I probably won’t touch. But going forward from here, I should be good to go.
The newsletter will be next after the website is taken care of. I haven’t sent one out in about a year, so I’ll probably do a reconfirm email for everyone just to make sure they still want to get it once it’s going again.
So now for writing stuff. I went months without writing. They were miserable. But the good thing is that I realized that I need writing in my life. I cannot be happy or survive without it there.
I started playing with a certain story… and a couple characters stood up and were like “Hey, HEY! Write me!”
And I was like “but I really don’t wanna…”
And they were like “I don’t care. You need to do it NOW.”
So I took it to a writing retreat that my writing group did, and got almost four thousand words on it. Which is damn good for a girl that ain’t written much in the last year. It was an amazing motivator to be around such awesome friends.
That story is forming its way into my brain. I know what needs to happen with it. I’m rusty though, so writing is kind of a slog at this point. I love that I’m writing again, but it’s hard, way harder than I remember it being. Maybe because I’m out of practice. I don’t know.
Gonna keep going though. See where it takes me. No set dates for the next release. No promises. I’m gonna write it. Then probably rewrite it. After a year, y’all deserve the best from me.
See you guys soon.
