So, it's been a while...

One year, ten months, and twenty-two days to be exact.


In that time I moved across the country -- twice -- and finally settled into Michigan. I bought a house and paid off a car. I met siblings that I never knew I had and I indulged in a lot of self-pity. I crocheted, I colored, I remodeled an entire home. I discovered that I am a diabetic, my mother had a second heart attack and my hair literally fell out due to stress.

What I didn't do during that time was write. Not one word. I didn't pull out my old stories, I didn't write new words. I created absolutely nothing. I'm here to, hopefully, rectify that. Here's to making new things again.

A long time ago, in a reality that seems very, very far away, deviantART was a source of great inspiration and motivation for me. I don't know if that still exists here, but I'm sure hoping it does.

:hug: Life will always make itself more important, but we definitely cannot judge anyone for that.

Keep your head high, and I can't wait! :heart:

You've been being awesome, that's plenty of reason to vanish. That house! :hug:

Do you have any writing goals set out for now?

<3 Thank you.

My "big picture" goal is to finish and refine my novel by the end of the year.  As for "little picture" goals, just getting back into it, really. Things like participating in events and "regular" writing again. I'm trying to be realistic about my goals. I know that life is still kicking my ass, so nothing too big too fast.
