This is my first time finding out who you are after reading Rival but why did you all of a sudden just stop writing?
Hey there, Anon.
Well, the short story is that my project was shut down. I scrambled to find work, and when I did, that work became all-consuming. I was working way too many hours for way too little. I was depressed, and I didn’t feel like anything I wrote was good enough.
Fast forward about a year and a half. Things were getting horrible again, and I needed an outlet. I still don’t feel like anything I write is that great. I mean, I did a couple of little drabbles that I haven’t linked to my fiction masterpost, but none of that was significant.
Anyhow, I decided to try drawing. I haven’t really sat down to draw anything in a long time. I guess I figured I didn’t have anything to lose. Now that I’m on the hunt for a new job again (the studio I went to recently shut down… which is, given the situation, kind of a relief), the act of sitting down to draw something every day is giving me a little structure.
I’d like to try writing again. I just need to get over… well, I guess I need to get over myself. I’m just in kind of a weird place with it all.
I suppose that’s not a very satisfying answer. Sorry. But I haven’t given up on it. I have, gosh… something like 5 large outlines, including one for the rest of Rival? I have an outline for a sequel to What One Needs and an outline for a sequel to On My Mind. I even have a few outlines for some goofy drabbles, like another Marco/Pony Head story and a quick Bob’s Burgers fic.
Anyhow, thanks for writing! I appreciate it. :)
