Contrary to popular belief, not dead!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 31, 2012, 5:15 AM

Hello my lovelies!

Despite my lack of activity lately, I would like to assure you all that I am most certainly not dead. It's been a difficult few months, to be sure, so I should probably bring you up to speed as quickly as possible.

I started a new job in March, which was a godsend- we really needed the extra money, and the company I was working for at the start of the year has since ceased to exist. They declared bankruptcy in May, not even six weeks after I left, and the last store was closed by the start of July. It happened really quickly, and I was so grateful to be out and in secure employment.

That being said, it's not all been rainbows and unicorns. My depression spiked pretty badly, to the point where I was taking time off work because of it. Which isn't precisely the best impression to make on new bosses. On top of that, I've been in therapy for a few months for eating problems/depression/anxiety, and I'm hopefully starting to make headway on that. I've been a bit of a mess, to say the least.

I've been struggling to write, and only just managed to get back into the habit again recently. Broken Souls is definitely not abandoned, just on hold, and I've got a few other projects under my belt as well. I do post things to my AO3 account… that I haven't gotten around to posting here. I've made a foray into Star Wars fic, and another game called Cinders, and posted some Once Upon a Time fic just last night. And that's without even mentioning the dozens of Dragon Age fics I've written, some of which I am most proud of.

BUT! The point of the post, other than to say I'm not dead, is to say that CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!! And in the spirit of the holidays, I would like to send a card out to you beautiful people if you are so inclined. And it doesn't have to be Christmas, if you are not one to celebrate- it can be Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years, Happy Holidays, whatever you so desire. But if you would like a card from me, I would very much like to send you one!

Let me know? :heart:

I have a disturbing habit of ending up in work that just seems to exacerbate my obsessions. Bookstores and computer game stores, yes please! As a result, my house is overflowing with way too many books that I will never read and more games than I know what to do with.
I also have a case of rabid fangirlism, much to the dismay of my long suffering husband, who does not understand my need to overindulge whenever something takes my fancy.

Eventually, the dream is to work for a game company as a writer (le gasp! fulfilling two loves at once!) but for now I'll potter about in my shops and waste money on fantasy RPGs and urban fantasy novels.
