    New Story: Night Moves

    It's another one of them stories where I hear a song on the radio and then just have to write a story to capture that feel. This time, it's Bob Seger's "Night Moves", hence the title.

    State of the Author, Chaos Edition

    Why is this called Chaos Edition? Because that's what my life has been like lately, to say the least.

    The Year in Preview: 2021

    This took far longer than it should have, right? I'll blame it on... recent events... that got me riled up, coupled with the conclusion of my seasonal position now that the holidays are over. But hey, at least I got it out before January is halfway over!

    A Short Statement

    What happened today in Washington, DC is not right.

    The storming of the Capitol building was not right.

    The inciting of violence by our own president was not right.

    If you support it, you are not right.

    To those people, please fuck off; I don't want to entertain your sick, twisted, deluded fantasies.

    Unfollow.

    Piss off.

    And have a shitty day.

The Year in Preview: 2021 · 7:05pm January 12th

This took far longer than it should have, right? I'll blame it on... recent events... that got me riled up, coupled with the conclusion of my seasonal position now that the holidays are over. But hey, at least I got it out before January is halfway over!

With all of that mess behind us, and another messy year ahead of us (because if anything these past 12 days have shown us that 2021 likely ain't gonna be any better than 2020), let's try to look forward. After the downer that last year was, I'm going to try to be optimistic about the future. With the distribution of covid vaccines, the world should finally start opening up again, and that means more opportunities for all of us and a chance to get back to the old normal. So, keeping that optimistic spirit in mind, here are my 2021 goals for things I want to accomplish on fimfic this year:

24's 2021 Goals:
[ ] Pass 1100 followers
[ ] Publish 6 stories
[ ] Finish Unshaken
[ ] Finish the rough draft of TTM3
[ ] Participate in at least 2 writing contests

I never really learn from my previous goals, so I always set them to be lofty, and then usually end up failing them anyway. The hardest on there I think is going to be writing 6 stories. I set it at 6 specifically to push myself to get a story out every other month (I've never gotten close to putting out a story every month, at any rate), but we'll see how that comes along as my schedule throughout the year changes and develops. Hopefully, finding and participating in writing contests will help with that. After that, finishing the rough draft of TTM3 is going to be a challenge. I had managed to write 5 or 6 chapters of it throughout 2020, but was dissatisfied with the direction I had taken the story in them, so I scrapped them all and started over. That dissatisfaction hampered my ability to write, which was the biggest reason why TTM3 was not ready for publishing this year like I wanted. Hopefully by starting over, I can get that mojo flowing again. Yet even still, finishing it all before the end of 2021 will certainly be a tough task. TTM3 promises to be the longest book in the series to date, and so I'll have plenty of words to write if I want to get it published and out there. Hopefully it will have been worth the wait when it finally is out, though; there are some plot twists and story beats in this entry specifically that I've been waiting to write since I first conceived the idea for this series in 2014. I can't wait to share those with you all.

To all of you out there, I hope your 2021 will be better than your 2020, regardless of how good or bad 2020 was for you. We can only hope for the best, right? And as things settle down throughout the year, I'll be right here with you all, watching it unfold, and hopefully unfolding some stories of my own onto this site.

Yeah, anything else is getting too optimistic. :/ Time is made up, after all.
