RamenRenegade is DEAD!!

Long live RamenRenegade!!

Ok so its been a while since I've been on this site and TBH there was a point where I thought I would never return. So for me to be sitting here, typing these words, formulating these thoughts, are suprising to me. Yet here I am.

Years ago, when I first decided to begin writing, for me it was merely an exercise to help me improve my writing skills. I really had no end goal in mind outside of just getting better. It didnt take long, however, for this to become so much more.

From hearing from the fans my stories seemed to garner I felt motivated to continue and quickly this became almost theraputic to ignore all the pressures of daily life and just write and to then read/respond to reviews and use that as fuel and experience. It was an invigorating time for the creative side of me.

So what happened? What changed? I'd like to say it was life. I had just gotten married. The talk of children (I now have a daughter) began to be bounced about. And my career, though promising, was in flux. I simply couldn't give writing the attention needed with all of the change that had suddenly crashed upon me like a wave.

But honestly, that's all bullshit. If I wanted to, I could've found the time. It's easy to find the time to do something you loved. But I couldn't. Wouldn't. But why? Because I no longer loved it. So the real question was why? What was it really?

It was Naruto. How it ended. And how Narusaku ended. Look I'm not going to get into how disappointed I was in Kishi and the myriad of issues I had with his decisions pretty much after the Pain arc, but I was disgusted. So much so, to the point I needed to step away from fanfiction writing and abandon my stories which was something I hated to do and swore I would never do because one day I woke up, opened my laptop and realized the motivation to write was no longer there.

Now, I'm sure some if not most of you might consider this laughably pathetic on my part. Trust me, whenever I think about this there isn't a moment that I don't consider it to be. How could a man, finished with college, with a career and fiancé be so affected by something so trivial? Sadly, I was. And so I chose to walk away and focus on other creative pursuits.

Which begs the question; Why am I back? Why now? Well, as they say, time heals all wounds. But truthfully, I don't know why. Just as I woke up one day and knew I was done. I woke up today and felt as though I wanted to return. And so here I am for whatever that's worth.

And though I have no motivation to read Naruto, Boruto or anything Kishi, I am, ready to get back to it. And my focus, my main focus will be Seven Sins and Blade of the Shinigami. Both are the stories I feel need to have closure. So I am officially back to writing those. As to when new chapters will be released I cannot say. I'm still in the process of dipping my toe. And as for Book IV of the Chronicles series. I think I might be done with it. Sorry. But I don't have the heart to continue. Maybe that might change in the future but for now...

Thank you for allowing me to bare just a bit of my soul and I look forward to entertaining you in any little way I can.
