Well, it has certainly been a while. My last real journal was months ago (okay, that's par for the course), and I believe it was announcing my departure from Organization Eternal. There have been positives and negatives, but overall I can say it accomplished exactly what I was hoping for: I pulled back from the internet a nice long way and got some serious writing done, including a very promising short story that has the potential to develop into something much more extensive (fingers crossed). I think I'm in a much better place than I was a few months ago, and I have the sense I've finally gotten my life under control.
Which ironically, is probably the source of the downside to this whole thing -- I pulled so far away I've been completely absent from the online community for several months now, leaving ~lucy12143
to work on #Org-Discordiae
alone and not really staying in contact with any of my online buddies. With the feeling that I now have my time organized better, I'm going to at least make an attempt to return a little ways back onto the scene. I have a few sketches to post, and god have I let my nonstop commitment to Discordiae slip. I'm going to try and make up for that a bit, though I must admit my unannounced hiatus was nice and relaxing -- a chance to recharge, if you will.
Heck, I might even try and get on to the chats if there was actually the chance of finding anyone on there. You know who you are. I haven't properly RPed in forever either, and am totally willing to give that a go if anyone else wanted to meet me halfway. Other than that, I'm going to try and get back into the swing of things over at Discordiae while maintaining my new schedule with writing and everything.
It'll be a challenge, I suspect. But this is a tentative return from the dead, so here goes.
