A LOT to catch up on... · 7:47pm
((TL;DR version down below))
Alright, a lot of you have been wondering where I've been the past several months, and I greatly apologize for that. I've had to take a big focus on real life. Mostly due to a few reasons:
1. I had to move from Belgium to Georgia. So yeah, I am now in the USA. This took up a big chunk of time, and I had to focus on my main priorities instead of my hobbies. There was also getting my college credits transferred to another college-- no, lemme rephrase that-- several colleges within my new area. Even then I've got a lot of paperwork to get through to even apply to any of them.
2. My writing inspiration's been VERY lackluster as of late. I had started Chapter 31 of the Naruto fic at one point, but then I had to scrap it due to how hollow it sounded, so I had to go back to scratch. So here I am, with only 300 words worth of content, which is nowhere acceptable to what I usually put out. This is why I hate scheduling: My brain is unpredictable with what it feels like doing. I can either be lazy, energetic, or even go on a brainstorm/writing spree. I'm starting to think it's my current diet that's affecting my energy-- Pizza and burgers will only get you so far. One thing I need to start doing is going back to salads and fruits. It will accomplish a lot in the long run.
3. There's also PonyFall, which, I must admit, had been draining a lot of my creativity. If some of you are aware, I had to overhaul one chapter due to its questionable content, and that really drained the fun out of me writing for the fic. Not only that, but I've been putting it off for several months. There's really no excuse I can give for its delay, since I've had a ton of time to get anything done with it. And it's been 2 years since I created the darn thing as well! D:
I also have some unfortunate news regarding PonyFall, actually. Me and the group had a talk at some point in Skype regarding my position in the collab. Time and time again I said that I would get around to updating my fic in particular, and a lot of us were aware that I would be finishing it up in 1-2 chapters, due to me no longer being interested in the collab in particular. Unfortunately, what I said was an understatement. It turns out I had no interest in updating it anymore. I kept telling myself "No, don't give up! You can do this! Get off your lazy ass and finish it up!" but they were just empty words pointed at me, ironically. It sounds like an excuse, but I don't know how else to describe it.
Therefore, my part in PonyFall has stopped indefinitely. I have no idea when I'm going to be getting back to it, but the group is aware that I am no longer part of PonyFall. If I DO get around to updating the fic, I will have free reign on what I want to do with it. But this is probably unlikely. I would probably need the size of Mt. Olympus's size just to get motivated in doing it again.
However, that doesn't mean I'm done with Fanfiction entirely.
The Naruto fic will go on, I just don't know when. I've also lost contact with DaMobbs and some of the other proofreaders, so I will need to get back in touch with them soon if I do get the inspiration again. I must apologize deeply to everyone on this late status update. It has been nagging at me for a long time, but I just didn't know how to word it all. I hope everyone will stay patient with me as I try to find the inspiration to continue.
((The tl;dr version)): I'm done with PonyFall, I don't know when the next update will be, and real life is my main focus. Thank you.
