To all readers:

I know you were expecting a new update, and I'm honestly sorry to disappoint. However, I've just been lacking inspiration lately due to 1) Zanessa not being together and 2) the lack of readers I have. I used to get pretty much feedback, but lately it seems like people just aren't interested in my work anymore. I understand that's most likely my fault for not updating often, so I'm not blaming anyone but myself. But anyway, besides that...I now have a babysitting job nine hours a day twice a week along with a second babysitting job one or two weekends a month. In addition to that, I'm petsitting for neighbors that have been going away and getting things in order for my senior year of high school, which is coming up in the fall. That means I'm trying to figure out what courses I need to take to graduate, organize times for college placement testing, figure out what's required for my major, etc. On top of all this, I'm working to get my drivers' license, which is very important. So this is why I haven't been on lately.

So now, I'm going to tell you about my new story. The only story I have inspiration for at the moment is the Zanessa one that I'm posting on Livejournal. So whenever I have spare time to write, that's the one I work on. It makes me happy and I'm inspired to write it because it talks about Zanessa's future and Vanessa's struggle with the decision to breakup with Austin. I intend for the story to follow them through engagement, marriage, and children with all the difficulties of being a celebrity. (If you're interested, the title of the story is Second Chances, and it can be found on my Livejournal account "zanessalove2013" and I also post it through Twitlonger on Twitter for the people who don't like Livejournal. You can follow me on Twitter troyellaizlove.)

But anyway, the bottom line is that I'm putting my stories on fanfiction on an official hiatus. I have no idea how long the hiatus will be. It could be a week, it could be a year. I'm not going to delete because I might get hit with inspiration to continue or I may show up with some oneshots or something later on, so I'm not going to officially discontinue anything.

Also, many of you have probably noticed that my M-rated oneshots are gone. Fanfiction deleted them because they found them offensive, which really annoyed me. I do not have them saved on my computer, so I can't even repost, which really made me angry. So, I guess they're sadly gone forever:'(

Alright, so I think that's about it. I will still be on here to read other authors' work and to answer PMs, but I just won't be writing on here for a while. Please don't ask me when I'm coming back to write because I honestly won't be able to give an answer. I love everyone that gave me kind reviews and suggestions for my work and I really appreciate all the reviews, subscribers, and favorites I got. If you want to follow me more closely, check out my Twitter ( troyellaizlove) and visit my Livejournal to read my Zanessa fanfic (zanessalove2013). Thanks again for supporting me all these years and thanks for putting up with me through deleted stories, crappy chapters, and late updates. Like I said, I'm not official ending these stories; I'm just putting them on hiatus because I don't know when I'll have the time/inspiration to write again.

Thanks for reading this very long A/N, and I hope you're all enjoying your summer:)
