2/19/13:

Happy belated New Year, everyone! I'm still alive and happily so, and splitting my writing time between the next chapter of Gray and the first two chapters of First Dates. Provided I don't get derailed by real life (which is always a possibility, sadly) I may have an update of some sort soonish.

Big thanks go out to Zen Monk and her PMs. Sometimes a muse isn't a person, but a conversation about bodice rippers.


Public Service Announcement: I understand that reading has moved to cell phones for a lot of you. I understand that also makes it harder to review. Look, I get it. I'm typing this out on my phone, actually, and autocorrect keeps inserting in bizarre shit. But, please, I ask you to remember the writers. If quality takes extra time, can you not reciprocate with some ("ozone"- per autocorrect) extra time of your own? Whether that means battling ("barreling") the bizarre ("chi are") shit or sending one later from a computer, it could save a writer from discouragement and a story ("sort tort") from discontinuation.


On reviewing:

I still think it's simple common courtesy to leave comments for a story you've enjoyed. I guess I liken it to applauding after a show you've just enjoyed. Naturally, we writers can't force you to leave them, any more than you can force us writers to write faster, but a little consideration goes a long way. So leave 'em or don't—in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter. Just know that this writer appreciates it when you do.

I'd like to add that many writers, me included, use reviews as a source of inspiration. Sometimes life casts me in so many different roles that I forget "writer" was ever one of them. Getting reviews, saving reviews, rereading reviews—all three have revived me on innumerable occasions. Don't underestimate the impact you might have by taking 5-10 minutes and leaving an author a thoughtful review.


On motivation:

I'm not the type of writer who writes "because they have to." I may create stories because I have to, but I write because I'm an illustrator and words are just another medium. Sadly, I don't have the time or energy any more to be as prolific as I used to be. Also, see the last paragraph of above.


FAN ART:

It's mind-blowing that anyone would be so inspired my stories, but a couple of talented and generous souls have gifted me with fan art!
