Wow, it's been over six years since I've posted anything here. I don't know if anyone will read this, but I wanted to explain my absence.
After publishing my last fic, I tried to write and publish some novels. I really thought I could do it, but about a year ago I realized I'm just not cut out for it. We're all built differently, and we all have different strengths and weaknesses. It's important to push ourselves forward, but it's equally important to know and respect our limitations. Interestingly enough, this realization came around my ten year anniversary of writing. This led to me becoming depressed and believing I would never write again. I still loved writing, but in my failed attempts to get published, I had begun to resent it.
But then, about a month ago, I started to get some ideas for a story. I fought through my depression surrounding my writing, and I started putting together a whole new fic. I fell in love with writing again, and I realized that I don't have to become an award-winning author. Just writing for myself is enough.
In the time since I left here, I've been on a journey of self-discovery. I learned I'm aro/ace, and that I'm happy with the person I am. I used to want to be in a relationship before I really knew myself, but I know now that I don't need it, my friends and family are enough. And in the same way, just being able to write at all and find enjoyment in it is enough.
So now I'm getting ready to publish my first fic since 2015, and it feels like a lifetime has passed since then. I don't know how often I'll write and publish things, but that's okay. I'll write as inspiration comes to me, and we all know it comes and goes as it pleases.
Thank you to everyone who has ever reviewed or sent me a message, and thanks to everyone for just reading my work, you mean more to me than you could ever know. And I just want to make it known that I never start publishing a story before I've completed it, just in case it turns out that I can't. So if I ever stop publishing chapters before a story is complete... you can guess why. But nevermind that, I've got a story to publish :D
I write for myself now, and for you.
