Wee Update, and Wincon!

Hi LJ!


Long time no see! That's because I haven't been writing, and I pretty much only use this LJ for my fanfiction. No fanfic, no post, you see how that goes? I stopped writing because writing was making me hate myself, and so far I haven't regretted that decision, even though I still feel guilty about not writing. Of the lose-lose scenario, this one was the least painful.

On a much brighter note, I am going to Wincon, thanks to the generosity of [livejournal.com profile] valtyr who bought me a pass last year when I was broke! \o/

So, who else is going? I want to meet as many of you wonderful people as possible! (And then, quite possibly, I will be peopled out and spend several hours hiding under a table, but you're all cool with that, right?)

Speak and be heard!

We can hide under the table together. Or does that defeat the point? :D

Ack, I'm so sorry writing became a toxic thing for you! That's really, really awful, and I hope it doesn't stay that way forever -- just because I don't want any sort of creative pursuit, especially one for which you have so much talent, to be that way.
Enjoy WinCon!

I am sorry to hear that--I friended your LJ because I adore your writing--but absolutely you should only do it if you enjoy it--can I ask why it stopped being fun for you? You don't have to answer! I'm just curious--but it is none of my business. i do hope you one day pick it up again and it starts being fun for you, because you are so talented!

Me! It's going to be so great to meet people face-to-face.

I'm sorry writing became an exercise in misery for you. I get it, though. *hugs*

I'm so sorry you don't enjoy writing any more. I came back to LJ today because I have been reading your stories exclusively for the past two days and I LOVE them. I want you to feel good about the magic you create. I need you to know that it made ME feel good, anyway. Please don't hate yourself.

I went looking for the art that went with "The Bird that Feels the Light," a truly wonderful story that I had read before and re-read today with just as much feeling and interest. I love it. But when I clicked on the art, it wouldn't open, so my heart broke a little because I knew I was missing something great.

I know this comment is too long, but I love your writing. Have fun at your con. Feel good about yourself. I have been in your corner for a long time, just quiet. But not quiet anymore. You are great!
