How Deadlines Don't Work · 6:32am
Okay, so it's been a while since I've been on here, even longer since I posted a chapter for one of my stories. I've written stuff for them don't get me wrong, but nothing really finished. Since I haven't posted the next chapter in Discord Babysitting in what I assume is nine months, among other fictions, I feel like I owe you guys an apology and an explanation. I'm not gonna tag any of my fictions with this, though I suppose I should tag Discord Babysitting, but I figure anyone who cares will see this.
While watching a recent episode of Game Grumps, Arin put something into perspective for me. A bad habit I have is setting deadlines for myself, goals of when I want to finish something and release it to the public. Whenever I set one of these deadlines, I never ever have once made a single one, nope, and unfortunately this destroys my mojo. So I'm sorry, I can't say when I'll come out with any of my fictions updates, just that I'll try and do something soon. Woof, I've been putting off telling you guys that for a long time, bout time I finally showed you all I'm alive!
Something that has interfered in my writing is my life, there's been a lot going on. I went through a break-up in October, found who I know is my soulmate in November, visited her on the opposite side of the country near the end of January, and I had plenty of my job, family, and a hurricane to deal with around all that. I'm also obsessed with watching Game Grumps and Pewdiepie, Doctor Who, and trying to get back into video games. Not only that but apparently I'm moving to Texas next month, so there's a ton of stress around that, and my evil step-mom refusing to divorce my father because she likes his money. Bucking witch. >.>
But none of these things are the number one reason for my lack of fictions. The number one reason? Roleplaying. What's more fun than writing a story? Making one with your friend. You can do anything you want, be anyone you want, you both contribute to the story, it's so addicting and I have some amazing roleplay buddies (not looking for more, this isn't an invite guys). It's never just about ponies, and it's always so unique and interesting, and often random. I recently roleplayed Buttercream Sundae from Littliest Pet Shop having Rouge from Sonic the Hedgehog as a girlfriend/ pet. Tell me that's not random (Rhetorical, don't be a smartass guys).
Unfortunately, my buddies have been roleplaying with me less and less lately, the move getting closer is stressing me out, and I somehow overdrew from my bank account so I can't afford to keep my gaming spree going. So this is pushing me back towards fictions in the worst of ways, but hey at least something might get done soon, right? I got some original work I want to do, but I really wanna get all your favorite pony fics updated just so you all know, so we'll see how things go in the future.
In the meantime, stay patient, and remain a bro guys and gals! ^^ See you when I see you!
