I'll start with the obligatory apology for not being active at all.
As I mentioned in a status about a month ago, I've been super busy. It's been over a year since I started my long endeavor of a fanfiction, and I fully intend to finish it. I hope you guys know that. It's probably some of my best work, and I don't plan on giving up on it (or you all! I have such a lovely cluster of active watchers, and you all are amazingly awesome.)
I've gotten quite out of the habit of writing after NaNoWriMo. My "oh, I'll take a couple of weeks off and then get right back into the habit" plan backfired, and I don't think I plan on using that plan again. Perhaps 5 days off at most, but writing 2000 words a day was really great so stopping after NaNo was a mistake. I need to start doing that again. I'm planning on doing a little project for April's Camp NaNo that I'm in the works of right now (more details on that later) and along with that I'll hopefully be getting some writing in. I've got plans and even the climax of the plot all written out... it's now a matter of willpower and character development.
My personal life, if anyone is really interested, is quite bare now. My schedule was jam-packed with Speech and Forensics, Drama, Debate Team, and school among other things. Now, nearly all of my after-school activities have come to a screeching halt with the Forensics tournament being over, and I have a little more free time. However, I am the understudy to a lead singing role in our school's musical and I have to learn 3 years' worth of Tuba in a little under 5 months to be up-to-par for next year's Concert Band (we need more low brass!) so I'm busy yet again.
I love being busy with stuff I love to do, but you all suffer when that happens. So I need to slow down a little and schedule a weekly update or something. You're all so important to me! I've made some really awesome friends on here.
Don't expect to see anything posted for a bit, but do know I'm still thinking about you and it's on my mind. I'm getting there. I'll re-read some of my old stuff and get back into the story. #notdead
