...regardless, surprise! I'm writing again...or at least, attempting to. Let's just say, I'm in the frame of mind and properly motivated to get back into the swing of things. Now, given that it's been two years since I attempted to write so much as a sentence, I'm spending a lot of time going back and trying to reacquaint myself with where I left off, and more importantly, reconnect with the characters I created. (They are quite displeased with me at the moment since I've left their stories hanging for so long and some are upset that I killed them off, even though I never really intended for them to die - they will be very happy when I unkill them...well, some of them anyway.)
So, that is where I stand. Dusting off the storyboard that I've been storing behind the bookshelf and trying to reorganize myself. Hopefully, I'll be able to give a more substantial update in the near future.
In the meantime, at a friend's suggestion, I'm reading The Enemy, by Charlie Higson.
