Why yes, I *am* writing again!

Since my last post, I realized that I have two stories that could be completed and submitted to this online press. One is the wholly unique monk story, but also an HP story I'd started in the summer for a fest, but didn't get very far in writing. I had most of it in my head, and I've recognized that I can change it up very easily in order to get it out of Rowling's version of magical and into something different. So I've begun revamping the first few thousand words and going in a more relationship-centric manner I'd shied away from when writing it for the fest because at that time, I'd decided to make it completely genfic. Now I can add some eroticism and make the new protagonist and his world unique enough that if there becomes a following, he can have other adventures in sequels. Not to project forward too much, lol.

But it's been great to be writing again, and getting re-engaged in this story line that I'd been excited for since the summer, but lost steam on. I'm writing! It feels great to have the characters come to life for me, rather than me having to poke at them to do something. I'm very, very happy about this development of events. My thanks again to [personal profile] snottygrrl for knowing how desperately unhappy I was in my prior work role and who volunteered me for this press in terms of being an able proofreader. I've done my quota and have let them know of my keen interest to do more in-depth editing, so we'll see about that in the future. :)

Great to hear it! I hope your monk story gets to see the light of day. Good luck and keep writing.

Thank you very much! I printed out the monkfic and will look forward to revisiting that world. :)

I am so very happy to read this and know that you are once again writing. I'm especially glad as I was very fond of Defender, and also recall from conversations how excited you were at the beginning of the hpfic. (I'm assuming it's the one we discussed on occasion.)

I know how much joy writing used to give you and I'll be very gratified to have you be able to feel that joy once again.

There is on thing in this post that I'm very, very curious about:

"unhappy I was in my prior work role" Did you quit? Are you no longer working there? Please to be explaining.

DotW had many fans, and I'm so thrilled that it may yet get published in one form or another. And yes, it's the same HP fic, but with a new arc and a bit of different world-building.

I'm still with Airbnb, but I applied for and was accepted to another team that's actually outside of customer support. It's sort of related, but more to do with community protection, and I love it! In my current role I really enjoy what I'm doing and my stress level has practically dissolved. It's amazing.
