An Update on Me · 2:11am
Hello all! Apologies for being sorta radio silent the past few weeks, but I thought I'd give everyone an update.
For those of you who were around back in September, you know that I went through a rough period where I battled an old foe, Anxiety/Hypochondria. Well it appears he's back for round two, so I've been sorta out of commission for the past few weeks or so.
I'll be fine, because I always am fine. Anxiety isn't a foe that can beat you, it can only knock you down before Garcian Smith comes and revives you before you make your big comeback and smack it down again. Then again, Anxiety can't be fully beaten either, only knocked back into place for a while.
So yeah, that's why I've been sorta distant the past few weeks. Apologies to anyone on my Steam friends list who have noticed if I haven't been very talkative/acting weird, that's the reason. I've mainly spent time relaxing, working on calming down, and playing XCOM.
Now then, other things…
Exit Through Canterlot!
I haven't even started Chapter 10 yet. This isn't because of anxiety but more because given that I just closed Act 1, I wanted to take a little break and do some planning to make sure things keep working. FUN FACT: When I first started ETC, Prince Blueblood was never meant to be in the story for more than a chapter, but thanks to some great advice, he's become a major player. I'm doing a little reworking of what's to come, but the plan remains mostly the same. As I've said before, I'm looking more forward to writing Chapter 10 than I have been for any other chapter in ETC.
And So I Wander!
Some of you may have noticed This Little Thing. I wrote it in literally 24 hours for the EQD Fanfic Event. I think it turned out… eh. To be honest, now that I look at it, I'm much happier with the idea of the story than the execution. I'm going to store that away and perhaps turn it into a full story in the future.
You guys have no idea what I'm writing here. I am reinterpreting the living FUCK out of Screwball.
So again, apologies for sorta disappearing, apologies for not talking, but basically I've been on a little writing break, and am getting back into the swing of things.
ALSO: Something big, job-related, may be coming my way. Fingers crossed!
And now, I return to hiding.
