So sorry!

I didn't mean to drop off the face of the planet there. I did it just about everywhere. I haven't felt very much like being friendly, which is one of those things I can't really avoid what with having to work and needing to support the family.

In June, I lost my oldest sister. It's been very hard to realize that she is no longer around anymore. My family has needed me, and so I've been spending extra time with them and when I was on my own I've been escaping in video games. Not sims though, Elder Scrolls.

This doesn't mean I'm done with Sims, but I haven't actually played Sims 3 like a real game ever. I've only really ever used it for screen shots because I really do like the look of the sims over Sims 2. (I know, crazy.) So I do actually use Sims 3 as a writing tool to bring characters to life from time to time. It's a fun tool for that, and easy to use to boot.

But I am on a break still while I try to balance everything out. I haven't even written for a few months. Today marks the first day I've actually sat down to just write because I had a character voice too loud to ignore. If I hadn't gotten up and started writing, she would have carried on without me and I don't trust my own memory. I guess that particular story is tired of waiting!

So, I'm sorry that I don't have an update and that I've been awol. I don't know when I can expect to be back to anything that resembles normal.


  1. Take as long a break as you need! I'm happy to hear you wrote a little bit today though - it must feel good for you to get back into it. :)

  2. I second Carla's comment! You do what you need to do and don't worry about anything else--we know you'll be back and we'll be waiting!

  3. Sometimes there is nothing you can do but find a way to survive, and sometimes the things you loved to play with the most cannot be used again. You have so much of my sympathy. Such a terrible, stunning loss. Write without the tool you used if you find you cannot pick it up again.

  4. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. Take all the time you need. Your fans will still be here... hug

  5. Thank you, everyone. I just hate poofing like this because the friends I know online matter just as much as my friends in person.

  6. I don't even know what to say, so I'll just say the obvious; I'm so sorry about your sister and my heart goes out to you and your family. Take care of yourself!
