First, let me send out my sincere apologies to those of you who were following Room For You. I've come to some sort of an epiphany, and while the fandom has mostly been gracious and helpful to me, I feel it's time to stop focusing so much on here, and move forward with my career as a writer.
Fanfiction is a great avenue for fans and I've enjoyed reading some incredible stories on here. There's many talented writers who put their time into this website for the sake of your enjoyment.
I spend a lot of energy writing and I'm not getting the feeback I hoped to have in order to improve. That does not mean I seek more numbers in reviews, it means I need more detailed feedback and I'm simply looking in the wrong place for it. So I'm reading more actual published books and seeking professional advice. With a full-time job outside my home and a husband with three kids, I can't afford to exude any more energy here. I must put the effort into my dream.
I realize my writing isn't top notch, which is EXACTLY why I'm moving on to better myself. Others stay on here for the same reason. Each person is different in her way of learning and gaining experience. Fanfiction isn't it for me anymore.
So thanks for stopping by. If you're here reading this, then it must mean something. I'm not angry or bitter (as I've been accused), I just know when it's time to bow out.
It's hard to pursue writing -- and some of you may not understand this but I know some of you will -- when there's nagging thoughts or incomplete "work" to be done. Fanfiction was once a conduit for learning, but it's turned into that nagging incomplete work.
It's a clean slate now. I've the freedom to write. Thank you.
