Ugh. I’ve been holding off on updating you guys about how it’s been going this past month, because I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to apply to this prestigious workshop, and since I haven’t solidly made an actual decision yet, somehow, just somehow, I let posting this (and pausing the Patreon) slip past me. And, apparently, because of Patreon’s recent troubles with charging people on time, they may be processing payments early, so I miiiight just have paused this a day late to avoid charging y’all.
Ugh. We’ll see what happens and I’ll fix it, somehow.
As it is?
The getting my writing skills back thing is… starting to show some promise. Not really the sort of material I was sharing before – I’ve been scrawling little diagrams in the middle of writing stuff to figure out how an orbital elevator works in my WiP’s setting – but there’s some kind of progress, and I am slowly, vaguely, feeling my way back into something like a writing routine.
But, at the same time, I am discovering that I have so much weird stuff I need to try and work to heal past, mental-health wise. And it’s really good that I’m starting to see that, and every step on that journey of mental wellness makes the journey of my life that little bit better and more worthwhile… but knowing there’s more to work on is always a little daunting.
As for that workshop I’m thinking about… well. I’m thinking about it. And if I can’t make my mind up in time, maybe I can get started early on thinking about it for next year.
