    Merry Christmas! Here's what's been happening and where it's going.

    So here's what's been happening for... well, years now. First of all, I was a grad student, trying to get a Master's Degree. I had some big up s and some decently bad downs. In addition, I was unemployed for seven months AND I live with my parents. Not exactly a good combination for free time, not having money and being hounded because of it. Then I finally managed to get a job... as a

    Thinking of the past in the future

    So good news, I finally finished a grueling class and managed to get an A in it, so I've got about a week or two of mostly free time (still need to find a job). So expect updates coming.

    Trying to get back in the groove (Fan request)

    So as you can tell I haven't written anything in a while. Life has been difficult lately, and every time I try to write I get distracted or lose interest. I don't want to let you guys down though, but I can't seem to get the motivation, at least for the stories I already have. I have so many new ideas but I don't want to work on them until I get some other things finished or at least progress

    Patreon Voting Deadline

    Just so you guys know my first Patreon fanfic poll will be ending tomorrow. This is deciding which fic I will focus most of my effort on and (hopefully) finish the next chapter by the end of the month. Right now it's 2 to 2 between "Epicness" and "(Un)Dead" (so I may have to just toss a coin. Remember, $1 patrons get to vote, and $3 patrons get to look at and leave comments on the fic google doc

    Getting Down to Patreon

    Some 6 month internship ended, and though I will be looking for a new job I will also be using to this free time to both get back to really working on my fan fictions and start using Patreon in earnest. As I mentioned before, I'm going to have one tier on my Patreon where Paetrons can have a look, and leave comments, on certain fanfic chapters I'm working on. So here's how this is gonna work.

Merry Christmas! Here's what's been happening and where it's going. · 10:01pm Dec 25th, 2019

So here's what's been happening for... well, years now. First of all, I was a grad student, trying to get a Master's Degree. I had some big up s and some decently bad downs. In addition, I was unemployed for seven months AND I live with my parents. Not exactly a good combination for free time, not having money and being hounded because of it. Then I finally managed to get a job... as a telemarketer. I've been working there for the past six months and honestly, if it wasn't for the the fact that most everyone there is a genuine delight to be around and talk to I would've left after three. Also, it's an evening shift, 4 to 10:30. I'm not a morning person, and seeing as how I'm have no free time at night, I was just too tired to get anything done. And to top it all off I had some major surgeries to get done.

Here's the good news. First of all, I graduated! I officially have a Master's Degree now! Which hopefully means I can get a real job soon, and that I'll have more free time. I'm still stuck at home, but having several hours a day free certainly helps. I've gotten one of my two surgeries done with no complications. So yeah, things are finally looking up.

Now I know I haven't been updating for god knows how long, and I was determined to get at least one updated for this Christmas, which I did (shout out to Chivalry is (Un)Dead fans), and I hope to be doing more more frequently. I've also noticed, helping with other fanfiction projects, that I do MUCH better when I'm working alongside someone to bounce ideas off of, or at least get feedback. Maybe soon... I'll be opening up positions for editors/co-writers?

One last sincere thing I'd like to say to you all: I love writing, but sometimes it honestly feels like a chore. But honestly, you guys and gals, you fans, keep my trying all the time, even if I don't succeed. I want to write, not just for me but for you, too. Chivalry is (Un)Dead updated, and it's only the first. Gilgamesh is still continuing. Kira is still continuing. Katsuo, Cirno, and Red vs Blue and Death Battle (on my deviant art, same name) are all continuing. I am always bowled over by how much you guys want to keep seeing my work, and my greatest disappointment is not being able to deliver.

I'm back baby, not just for me, but for you. Let's get to work.

Glad to have you back.

Glad you are back, you are awesome, and I have to say, you don't need to feel like it was a chore, write is like a open world you want to describe by writing, and you can take hiatus whenever you want and publish when the time comes right, if you force yourself in writing sometimes the chapter cannot go well and it will be like a bad idea you could change later, so do what you think is right and when you are inspired. XD

KEEP DOING AN AMAZING JOB AND MERRY CHRISTMASS. XD

happy to see you back been

Merry Christmas :twilightsmile:

THE MAN! THE MYTH! THE LEGEND! IS BACK, glad to see your return and that things are going your way!
