Important

First, for anyone that was interested in the video I posted a couple weeks ago, the second episode is now up here: https://youtu.be/0f9GBL1sqqI

However, that is not the only thing I wanted to talk about… you all probably know that I haven’t been very active on here even since I ‘got back’ this month, and I’m sorry about that. The thing is, though, I just haven’t been invested in writing right now and I don’t know entirely why. I want to want to write. I really do. This story has been such a big part of my life for the past year and few months and I don’t want to give it up. I used to really enjoy writing, especially last summer. It was really fun, and I want it to be like that again. I want to be posting regularly again. I think that maybe it’s because I feel like the chapters have to be so good now and there has to be a good planned out plot that it hasn’t become as fun. And here’s the thing, though… I know the story is better now. I know the chapters are better now and I know my writing is better now. But it isn’t as fun to write. It’s not something I want to write anymore and it genuinely hurts to say that. So – I’m asking you all if you would still be with me here if the chapters become shorter and I spend a few weeks just experimenting with how the chapters will be now. I understand if this is a disappointment, because I feel like it is, and I’m sorry. But this story used to be my life and I used to love writing it.

I want to love writing it again.

  1. Of course, I understand! That’s the way I’ve been feeling for quite some time now – to the point it’s gotten difficult for me to find the motivation in me to finish generation 6. I’d love to read whatever you post! ♥

    1. Thank you ☺️ I hope you find your motivation or something else you love to do. Life is about doing the things you enjoy, after all. ❤️

  2. I’ll definitely be here, no matter how long a break or what direction you go in. I’m as much into learning about other writers’ processes as I am into enjoying their work ( probably more, actually ) and so I’ll be excited to see your experiments.

    It’s also okay to follow what is fun. You can do and learn different things, taking with you all you’ve learned from this project. Unless you want to learn what it takes to complete a large project, there’s no compulsion to stay with it. This is your hobby, for fun and growth and discovery, and if fun, growth, and discovery take you elsewhere, follow them! Maybe sometime they’ll lead you back here!

    1. Ah, thank you. I’m glad you see the importance of fun in things! I have already taken things I’ve learned from writing this into my YouTube mapping series already, haha. I really have learned a lot from writing this story and I hope to find the fun in it again soon.

  3. I’ve actually felt the exact same way! Now that I put out a chapter every two days, I feel like posting funny, short things that I have more fun writing every now and then is a waste of a post. I used to just let myself forget about the story for a while if I wasn’t feeling it until I was inspired which worked, but now I don’t have enough posts scheduled, oops! 😛

    I’m 100% behind you if you want to try out new things. This is your story, after all! Everything is up to you, so do what makes you happy. Pushing yourself to do better is great until you don’t feel like the product is worth all the effort. I’ve missed having you around though, so don’t disappear for too long again, hah! 😉

    1. You should post those fun things! I’d love to read them. I almost never had posts scheduled because I wanted people to read it as soon as I was done 😂

      And yes, I definitely was pushing myself to do better for a while and my writing has definitely improved – something that’ll stay with me – but I want to enjoy writing again. Aw, thanks, it’s nice to know you missed me around, I’ll try not to leave for long anymore 🙂

      1. Haha, thanks! Maybe I will 😛 That’s funny, I’m actually the opposite, I preferred to have tons of time in between writing and posting so that if it was bad I could just pretend it never happened 😉

        Yeah, I can tell! I’m glad. Looking forward to whatever you decide to put out next! Of course, I’m glad to hear it! 😀

  4. I know this feeling all too well. It’s like you’re still invested but you feel burnt out. Eventually you’ll get inspired or think of a great idea for the story and the desire to write will kick in. There’s no telling how long it will take (last time for me it was two months :/ ) but you just enjoy doing other things in your life and eventually it will come back to you and we will be right here waiting for more. 🙂

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I think writing such long chapters so often just took the excitement and fun out of writing. After I finished one chapter, I had to instantly be onto the next one to meet the schedule and I just wasn’t inspired anymore. I really do hope I become inspired again, I loved enjoying to write the story. 🙂
