Alright, admittedly the title of this journal is a tad  melodramatic... but seriously, what else would you expect from a writer?

So, I seem to still be accumulating followers; howdy y'all... which I must admit to finding a bit strange due to my lack of activity on DeviantArt. Still, I appreciate the vote of confidence.

Unfortunately my writing has slowed to a crawl lately due to struggles with my untreated mental illness (major depressive disorder, or more simply; depression).

My usual coping mechanisms are proving less successful than normal, and I may find it necessary to have myself committed temporarily until I can either get a better handle on my illness again or find new coping mechanisms that work.

Never fear... I will survive this; just as I have weathered such storms in the past. I will recover, and I will start work on The Bloodstained Rose and the dark fantasy world of Karst once more. It just might be a while.

In the meantime (if I can work up the energy to do so) I will try to dig up some of my older works that I don't intend to publish, and try to post some of it.

This is my first journal entry on DeviantArt, and I’d like to start out by saying howdy to my few watchers, and whoever else might happen across this page. I’ve been visiting DeviantArt for years, but only recently created a profile and became more active.

I am currently working on an ongoing two-part writing project that is showing some promise. The first part, building my dark fantasy world, is nearly finished. Once I am satisfied that I have a viable world built I intend to do two things with it; 1. I plan to build a table-top RPG using my world as it’s core setting.
2. I plan to write a novel, or series of novels, set in my world.

My world is currently named Karst, my RPG has not yet been named, and my first novel set in Karst is tentatively titled The Bloodstained Rose.

At some point in the future I may begin posting samples of my world, the RPG I’m building, and my novel. In the meantime I plan to dig up some of my older work that I don’t intend to publish, and post it here to give y’all a sample of my writing style.

Thank you all for your interest, and for all the wonderfully inspirational art.

You’re very welcome, and no worries, I’ve had this account for over a year and only recently started to be more active myself.

 I keep telling myself that I’m going to post some of my old material on here, but somehow I never seem to get around to it 🤷🏻‍♂️.
