As the title says, I'm still around...though I haven't really been writing. Besides working, I've mainly been reading, playing video games, and crocheting. Some friends introduced me to a really cute game on Steam called "Stardew Valley." It's about being a farmer and growing crops, raising animals, and building relationships with the villagers. I enjoy it. It's fun.
I'd like to say that I'll be active here pretty soon, but that would be a lie. I'm going through things right now and haven't really sat down to write anything in a few months. I've jotted down plenty of ideas, but haven't written anything. The problem with most of my ideas is that I want to make them one-shots, but then I get more ideas for it and becomes more of a chaptered story. Or I'll just have to really apply myself and just make myself cut it down to a one-shot...a really, really long one-shot. Meh. I dunno.
Right now I'm at an impasse with my job. Not really excited about it or the people I'm working with. It's not that they're bad people, per se. It's more that they're unreliable. Not saying I don't have any faults, but it's discouraging when you feel like the glue holding everything together and have to remember everything for everyone. It's a possibility that I might be getting a transfer back to my hometown--back to my friends and the possibility of doing something other than merchandising. Merchandising can be fun, and it's something I'm good at. On the other hand, it's become stale and well...boring. I've been doing it for nine years. I'd like to broaden my horizons, so to speak. We'll see though. I don't know what that district manager has planned.
I'll try to devote some time to writing. Or at least trying.
