Hello, everyone! Long time, no see. I have an important announcement to make in terms of my presence on Lunaescence, so please continue reading below, and if you know of anybody who's out there wondering where I disappeared to, please refer them here. Thank you!


I'm going to try to make a long story just a little bit shorter:

In college, I majored in creative writing. Of course, that meant that I had to write A LOT, all the time, and not always things that interested me or that I wanted to spend time writing. Because of this and some pretty frustrating situations in my writing classes themselves, I became pretty severely burnt out during my senior year.

Before the burnout, ideas just jumped into my head from pure air. Or I'd read something and think, "Hey, I can do that and make it even better." Or a random character or situation in a book, TV show, movie, game, or even in real life would spark an idea for a story. Once the burnout began, that stopped happening completely. We're not talking writer's block here, we're talking severe exhaustion and disinterest in the entire process of writing.

But I thought maybe if I just kept writing what I loved to write, the problem would solve itself over time. So for two years after my burnout began, I continued to write, continued having to wrack my brain for even the smallest of ideas, and continued to not really feel "into" it anymore. Around that time was when Luna started having pretty severe issues, and it looked like the site may be doomed. I had been less and less active up to the point that the site went down, and once it did, I decided that I was going to take a break from writing. So that's where I've been.

As for where I'm at now: My desire to write has been slowly, slowly trickling back in for around the last year or so. Every once in a while, an idea will pop into my head the way ideas once used to flood it. I think I'm coming back, bit by bit. However, even as the writing spark returns, the desire to post online hasn't come back.

So that leads us to the future. Simply: I have no plans to continue posting my writing online. I have decided that should I continue to write stories, I will most likely be working on something that can be published in some way. However, that being said, all of my stories will remain on Lunaescence as long as the site exists, so you may continue to read them as much as you'd like.

I sincerely apologize to those of you who have been keeping up with Princess Impersonator especially, because that story will likely remain totally unfinished. I know how much it sucks to find a story you love online, just to have the writer disappear. It's happened to me so many times, and I swore I'd never do that to my readers. But honestly, what you've seen of PI so far is not even a quarter of the story, and I just don't think I have it in me to finish it off. Not now. I'm so sorry.

Finally, I just want to thank all of you for supporting my writing for all these years, for leaving such heartfelt reviews and sending such lovely messages. I am so honored to have found such wonderful people through writing. I appreciate all of you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. ♥
