Hey readers, friends and followers, I'm sorry to say that I have to go on a writing hiatus.
Hopefully it will be temporary, but I'm not sure at this point. Between real life pressures of raising my kids, family stuff, work, etc. and minimal free time, there's just not enough of me to go around! I'm emotionally and mentally exhausted...I'm just spent!
Listen, this is something I never thought I'd need to do, nor is it something I ever wanted to do, but writing has become a chore wrapped in crushing pressure and loads of guilt. I'm finding my words aren't flowing, but being dragged painfully from me.
It just isn't any fun anymore. I've just been feeling sick over not updating - seriously getting me depressed over it. That's no good.
I need to come back to it when it is fun again. And I will. Hopefully that'll be sooner rather than later, but I can make no promises.
I will still be popping in and out of the fandom, because it's a place I love and can escape to, and it's filled with so many wonderful people. And I will still be doing some fanart and participating in the fandom here and there on Tumblr and DA and Stealthystories II.
I hope I'm not letting you down too much. I debated if I should say anything or not, but after thinking on it, I just couldn't sit back and let you all hang, waiting on updates, wondering why I wasn't writing. I couldn't do that to you.
