I AM FINALLY BACK!!
I felt it would be better to post my apology letter here rather than on each update. So here it goes.
I know some of you may feel like I've abandoned all my fanfics and will never update them again, but this is simply not true. To be quite frank, I've gone through a rough time this past year or so, and as much as I loved writing I could only occasionally find the will to do so. I couldn't really see a purpose to any of it and I just was not very happy. I didn't plan my hiatus, nor did I want to take one in the first place, but I just couldn't do it. Some of you have been here from the time I began posting on here, so I suppose I should be comfortable enough to share the reasons why I couldn't be here, the only place I truly love being.
As a lot of you know, I began posting on here when I was around twelve and in the seventh grade. I wrote a lot of love stories, even then. Last year, my junior year in high school, I fell in love for the very first time. It was a whirlwind. He inspired my writing from then on, but also consumed me in a way that was not healthy. It ended quickly, but left me in pieces. That exact moment was when my imagination went dormant. I was pretty depressed, and I just stopped writing.
Yes, I'm aware it's stupid, but it's not the only factor. Shortly after that, we had a falling out with my extended family, in which a close relative said horrible things about me and that made it worse. Soon after, I lost a lot of friends and was basically alone. My insides were insisting that I write about it, but every time I sat down to write I completely fell apart. I started failing at school, which had never been a problem for me before. and things were just so awful.
Not that any of that should have been an excuse for me abandoning the one thing that truly brings me joy, but it was. This year, I was still a little depressed, seeing as it was my senior year and it was the first time I'd be going into a school year with no one and nothing feeling utterly discouraged. Not to mention all the college applications I had to fill out. On top of that I'm trying to muster up enough money to start school in August and everything has just been hell.
In my time away however, I think I grew up a lot. I left you all a girl that still had the notion in her head that loving someone always worked out, that love could solve everything and that the people I loved would always be there. I return as a stronger and more secure person, someone who is a lot happier with who she is now than she was when she disappeared. So thank you all so much for sticking with me, and for all the love, and support, and patience. I am truly blessed to have you all.
On a happy note, I'm going to college this fall! I can't believe it's been six years since I began posting on fanfic.net. I was only twelve when I began here, not even in high school, and now I'm an adult and it's honestly terrifying.
For those of you who are curious I plan to further my education at Arizona State University with a major in Creative Writing. If anyone does attend ASU, let me know because I want to be your best friend.
Anyway, once again I am so sorry I left for so long. I hope you can all forgive me and love and support me just the same, because I love each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart. I promise to never leave without telling you guys again. Thank you for being the reason I kept moving forward. I read every review in the year I was gone and they all warm my heart. You're all completely lovely.
Hugs and kisses,
