Musings of a Pseudo-Author
I haven’t done one of these in a while. I figured it was time.
I was trying to fall asleep last night, thinking like I usually do. Of course I was thinking about the next chapter of ‘Met by Accident’. I was thinking about a new series I’m writing with several readers called ‘Bound to Please’, which the first chapter will be up tomorrow. Then I got to thinking about writing.
My writing to be exact.
I thought about how much it has changed over the past year. How the different fandoms respond to the various subjects and animes/mangas I’ve written about. How different YOI readers were from other fandoms. How ‘Met by Accident’ took off like a rocket. It still stuns me.
But then I thought what it would be like to be in your shoes, as the reader. What is it like reading ‘Met by Accident’ or one of my other fics? Why do they touch everyone so much? How can someone say it’s their favorite fic, that I’m their favorite author? Honestly, I can’t. It’s too much to wrap my mind around. I sit in front of my laptop, hoping you’ll like what I write. I read the comments you leave me with a grin on my face and wonder in my heart, disbelieving the words some of you leave me. I do a double-take when I check my email in the morning after I’ve posted an update, bewildered at how many of you have reached out in six hours or so. It’s unreal. It truly is.
So where am I going with this? I want to say thank you. You do not know what it means for you guys to follow me, to continue with this journey. Yes, I wrote MbA and will continue to do so until it’s finished; but I couldn’t have done it without you. You’ve made my life since January 13 such a joy. I have never been happier in my life…seriously.
Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. And I mean 100% of it.
