So…not quite posting again “end of January,” eh?

I’m struggling a bit with what to do. It’s been a crazy first quarter work and life-wise. And I’m just now getting into a place where I can start thinking for myself again.

I miss writing. I miss this community. I miss reading.

A lot has changed in the past year, life-wise – and I’m not as able or willing to devote 90% of my free time to sims. (Which was a blast, btw and I’m glad I could do it so long). But I’m responsible and eager to play in my yard and with my house. There’s so much I want to do with it. My work promoted me and I’ve got coworkers and a job that often leaves me mentally exhausted by 6pm and not capable of doing more than watching movies.

However, I’m also tired of not writing and not playing sims and not reading sims. It’s fun. You’re all fun. So I’m trying to figure out how to make myself start writing again.

It probably won’t be Ghost or Huffmans right off the bat. Those are stories that take a lot of work and a lot of planning and effort. I want to get back to them, but it can’t be how I was doing them before. I need to plan them out more so I know where they’re going.

It probably won’t even be Drifters. I have over 500 screenshots of my Drifters and related family taken over the past four months but nothing written. Screenshot first write second stories are faster to write, but I fear it will take some time to figure out how best to move forward with them. It kind of turned into a Neighborhood story while I wasn’t watching and I’m not sure how to make the pieces work

I guess that means it will be short stories! They’re the best of both worlds. Quick to do and usually take only an evening or two to screenshot. Oh, and I have a whole book of story prompts so I can write a story or three from that.

I will have something to publish this month. Becuase I want to read and when I write, I read. I’ll probably shift up the website when that comes so that it’s focus it’s on the wrong things. So be prepared for potentially a new look and feel and probably a new navigation.

If you’re reading this, thank you for sticking with me despite my disappearance. And for those of you who stick around for what I do next in this space, thanks again!
