The last time I could even get myself to write anything close to fiction was on here (or some site Bee dragged me to). I miss writing and I've been blocked for years now. I've tried and tried and tried and I'm getting closer to doing it again (I can get a few sentences out before I go back into my dark oblivion) but I'm still technically blocked.

I'm getting married in some months from now and I've found myself drawn back here. Even though the place is practically vacant, it's still prettier than anything I've seen before because I know what it holds.

This place, you people, our stories, it's still the closest I've ever felt to anything; and yet it seems so, so far away.

“I do want to do it!”

I know the feeling, kiddo. Been hoping you'd pop up. No matter how far or how long ago, the heart remembers.

Ditto on all fronts! <3 B is the glue that binds us all. -chuckle- But, all joking aside, if anyone wanted to come up with ideas or brainstorm a story, I would be more than game. It's been a long time since I've written anything!

I'm actually a little scared to start writing again. Conflicted doesn't even begin to cover how I feel about writing anything anymore (let alone the stories I want to write on my own).

I want to though.


This is slightly unrelated but I had an idea once to do a storyline with [you] people and actually polish it up and publish it. Has anyone done that successfully?



Also, what is a character anymore?

I've heard of folks doing that sort of thing, but I've never actually experienced or read anything like it. That WOULD be fun, though.

If you ever do want to try starting something, I'd definitely be game. Even if you just wanted to practice - I get the hesitation, though. If you feel the itch and didn't want to go forum where people can see it, I'll drop my Skype on ya. ;) If support from a complete stranger means anything. -chuckle- <3

I'm the Grand Champion of starting over, of being rusty and hesitant. I'm always afraid. But isn't that why we do this? It is part of all of us, no matter what we say to others or each other. Real life persists, but we are all writers. This has been and always will be a family and this family does not judge.

All of us hobbling together will get to the same place. Before long we'll be sprinting and all you will care about is the wind on your face and the story we write together. I'm here for everyone and anyone who wants this more than they care to admit.

Cause frankly, I don't ever feel as good as I do when I'm here.

I still wish you two could have adopted me. You were the best parents I ever had <3


And Prof., I may take you up on that some day in the distant future.

Well, now that everyone's here, it's getting harder to not write anything. <3
