After weeks (months?) of feeling creatively constipated, I’m going to stop being in denial. I need to take a long break from this. Balancing this and work has been…difficult, to say the least. Writing all the time for work just saps me of the energy I need for Redwood Crossing. It was easier to do this when I was in school, but now it feels close to impossible. :\ It’s hard to justify spending time on this when I could be working on paid projects.

That being said, I don’t want to completely give up on this.

We’ll resume September 12th. If there’s still voters around after that, then we’ll continue onwards.

I highly recommend subscribing for an e-mail alert and/or following me on Twitter (which…hasn’t been updated in a year+ but I may get back into it soon).

See ya in September.

  1. Aw, I wouldn’t say months, I thought the recent parts were good and there was an update last month. We all hit the wall sometimes, and being paid is an important thing! Glad to hear you won’t give up. As we so often have to tell ourselves, we do what we need to do.

    I kinda will take the opportunity to suggest my serial, if anyone has a voting itch they want to scratch… I normally wouldn’t, but k-fish has been nice enough to suggest it in the past too. Granted, I’ve recently switched to every two weeks, because most of the time it’s like pulling teeth to get up to 7 votes total, and girl love isn’t central (though the part I’m writing now has a surprising amount), but hey, nothing ventured nothing gained.

    I’ll balance that by reminding everyone to vote for “Redwood Crossing” on TWF. That way new people can find out about it, read the backlogs, and keep the stats up as encouragement for September.

    Best, kaleidofish!

    • WHOOPS. Your comment got stuck in the comment queue for all these months, sorry! I posted and then ran away to never check the site again. But yeah, definitely no problem with this plug. Plus, there’s a permanent link to your site in our sidebar, anyway, so advertise away.

      I try to plug your story every so often… If you ever want to write up a bigger ad for it, I can post it as an entry to the site. I’ve been meaning to do that, but I get sidetracked. I urged people to go read it in the latest chapter post, too, to try and make up for your comment sitting forever.

      Anyway, thank you for the kind words and encouragement. I’m looking forward to a time when my latest chapters sidebar isn’t just full of chapter delay announcements. :L

      • That’s okay, I figured you were trying to make a clean break for a bit, and as you say, the link was there in your sidebar. I also remember when you specifically plugged me once (last December maybe?) and I didn’t notice for a couple months. We all get busy.

        I guess I’ve never really considered a banner ad or anything (and now that I’m back to teaching, I don’t have the time) but thanks for the offer. I’ll keep it in mind. Yay for Redwood Crossing being back! Hope the fire department’s on the ball. ^.^
