Yes, I know. I'd planned on having Stars Fade FINISHED by now. I blame life, because I'm too narcissistic to blame myself for not carving more out of my time off to write. Also, I got stuck a little, and was too big a sissy to power through it. But I'm REALLY REALLY REALLY going to put A LOT of effort into getting this damn story finally completed. And yeah, I know, posting a new story series ISN'T getting Stars Fade finished, but it just... happened. My brain's a bitch like that. Just be glad you don't have to live with the miserable hunk of grey matter like I do.
So, yeah, still a WIP. Not dead. Not dying. Will absolutely be finished or I will die trying.
Notes on Reviews
I'm never going to apologize for a story that's come out of my brain, especially fanfiction (which is an unpaid labor of... sometimes love, and sometimes something not quite love). If I'm writing a story it's because that story is in my goddamn head and I WANT to write it. I'm never going to get my panties in a bunch because someone doesn't like one of my stories. Everyone should be free to read what they like, and I absolutely encourage them to do so, even if it means giving my stuff a pass.
The reason I generally don't reply to reviews because I have a full-time job and a part-time job and another part-time job, and I know that responding to reviews is just a way for me to avoid actually writing. No, it's not because I don't appreciate people saying nice things about my stuff. It's not because I get butt-hurt by people saying mean things about my stuff (although I do get frustrated by some). It's not because I think I'm too good for you to reply or thank you (although I will admit to being too focused on my own life stuff to remember to say thanks as often as I should - in general, and not just here). It's just a thing.
So go forth, read (or not!!) and try to enjoy something in this stupid world we live in.
They say Writers write.
In my case, this means I'm not really a writer because I spend an awful lot of time sulking because Writing Is Hard.
I've written fanfiction for more years than the interwebs has had sites for it. (Yes, I'm old. Now shut up about it.) Usually, this has been to avoid writing original stuff because Writing Is Hard, or because I was supposed to be doing something More Important Than Fanfiction (I'm contrary that way).
Mostly, I write game fanfic. Don't ask me why; it just turned out that way. I also mostly write without a beta because I'm
