I Can't Do It, Jon! · 11:30pm
I have to apologize for two things, both from my last blog post.
I promised that upon my return, chapter two of In The Shadows of The Gods would be up. First of all, the chapter's not even finished yet, and second of all, my return to the States was almost two weeks ago.
My ambition, writer's block, and poor work ethic have made a liar of me.
But I can't help it. I'm stuck on a very specific part of the chapter that I slapped in the middle to draw it out and I'm unsure of how to transition it to the part I have written. But my fanfiction career in general has been stressful lately. I'm trying to get a foothold on ITSoTG, I have a Vengeanceverse story that I have no idea what to do with, a story on FanFiction that I've all but abandoned (and am hoping to rewrite), a forum on FanFiction that I'm desperately trying to keep up with as a distraction from writing, a stupid number of stories that have been on my Read Later list for far too long, and unread Favorites that I'm not now motivated to read. I really don't want to stop reading and writing fanfiction, but I'm finding it too stressful and slow to really enjoy.
I need a break. I need to prioritize my fanfiction things. I need help. If anyone can offer some advice or even sympathy, please do! Hell, I'll take a beta reader, if anyone's willing. Consider this a cry for help.
