Weekly Writing Update #16 · 12:07pm 3 hours ago

Seasonal depression still has a hold on me, so I am lacking energy to do much more than write a couple hundred words in one week. I am mostly just reading things and all that, though I also messed up my sleeping schedule by staying up later than usual reading some nice stuff. So, I've not really done all that much work despite hoping I would start posting again in November - and it's December now.

Weekly Writing Update #15 · 12:17pm November 28th

I've written little over the past week, unfortunately, but it's better than zero. Temperatures here dropped below -25C and that does a number on me for sure. It's cold enough that I don't want to leave my room, let alone the house. I mostly want to lie in bed all day all wrapped in a nice warm blanket because, well, it's cold, and my apartment is cold because the windows are old. I also found out that when this house was built, the construction crews outright forgot to put thermal

Weekly Writing Update #14 · 8:19am November 21st

I've done pretty much nothing all week because all I could really do is go through the day and then sleep. A bit of seasonal depression, I suppose. Snow finally fell and it won't be gone until spring, and the weather is cold, it has been below -10C for a few days now. So, all I wanted to do was just curl up in my bed, read, eat, and sleep. It will pass, but for now I just want to do essentially nothing. I also believe that I figured out what really slows down my writing - trying to create

Weekly Writing Update #13 · 6:59am November 14th

I have written more for Salvation | Rebirth as well as some other things. The progress, as usual these days, is slow but steady. I hoped to begin posting the previous week or the next, but I think I am not quite ready. I'll deal with some life stuff as well and hopefully will resume posting before the end of the month or at least the end of the year.

Weekly Writing Update #12 · 2:40am November 7th

I have gotten a bit sick, so I've not written much. Not really the runny-nose or coughing-sneezing kind of sick, just pretty low energy and not a good mood. Probably has a bit to do with shorter days and cold weather. Unfortunately, I live in Siberia, so snow comes early, and the winter lasts for far longer than it really should. I try to get myself busy with something, but it's difficult when everything is just kinda meh.

Weekly Writing Update #11 · 12:44pm October 31st

I've written some more for Salvation | Rebirth and I think I'll start posting it again in November, first or second week. I think I'll focus on that story until I figure out the rest.

On an unrelated note, I don't have a song for this year's Halloween. I came up with a few ideas but didn't manage to make anything that sounds good in time. It just didn't work out, unfortunately.

Weekly Writing Update #10 · 11:30am October 24th

I've been working on Salvation | Rebirth again, and it's a bit tough because I need to get through a part I don't feel like writing to the part that I do want to write. Happens to all writers, I imagine. Aside from that, I've also been working on a project that I've not posted, though it also has some difficulties.

I'm coming out... again? · 3:59pm October 21st

Over the past couple months, I've been writing a story that is a self-insert, but the story-me is a woman. And once I started writing that, slowly but surely, I recognized that... it'd actually not be bad if I were a woman. Like, if I could change between sexes at will, I suppose. So, I thought about it for some time now, and I believe I am non-binary. I can't really present myself as feminine because of my looks - no amount of makeup can change the fact that I am bald, unfortunately -

Weekly Writing Update #9 - coming closer to posting story updates again · 8:33pm October 16th

Update a bit early today because I'm not yet asleep at three in the morning on this Monday. I've written a number of words for Salvation | Rebirth over the previous week, and I do believe I will post it first and will start posting it soon, likely once the next month starts. I don't yet know how many stories I'll post at the same time, but I think it'll be best I post one or two at most so I don't overwhelm myself. I honestly should've written one story at a time from the very beginning,

Weekly Writing Update #8 · 6:12am October 10th

The last week, I did some writing for Salvation | Rebirth, as well as a bit of planning for other stories. I hope to start posting again before the end of the year, though I'm still uncertain about the exact schedule. I will probably post one or two stories at the same time so as not to overwhelm myself, likely once or twice a week. As I said, I'm undecided, but at least there's some progress.
