Your writing is more than pretty good more like pretty amazing and awesome!! Your writing made me fall even more in love with puckleberry when I first read it and since it's never going to happen in glee I just re read your fics

Thank you, anon.  I had (have) the most amazing readers.  You all kept me going and inspired and made me love doing it!

YOU HAD RACHEL LOSE HER BABY ON A FIC IN MY BIRTHDAY AND I FUCKING LOST IT.

Oh wow… I’m kind of an angel of death when it comes to Puckleberry and birthdays…

The 2nd of August was my fav of yours :) If it’s part of you, it will come back! Give it all the time it needs so when it does come, nothing will stop your creativity. You’re excellent and I’m sure one of this day you will find yourself writing.

Ahhh, 2oA.  I was thinking about that fic today, too.  I might just start re-reading everything I’ve written to get inspired.  It helps to read stuff I’ve written before because it reminds me that I can actually do it!  And I did get a great idea for a short story this morning at 2am when I was lying awake in bed.  I need to explore the idea!

Oh you were more than “pretty good” you were excelent! All those puckleberry fics were simply outstanding! It’s sad that you miss it and (I assume) you have no time/motivation to start again. but hey maybe one day!

Thank you!  It’s so funny to read stuff that I don’t even remember writing.  I was reading one of my short ones, “Invisible”, on the bus today and I was like I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS STORY!!!  It’s been so long that, other than my “big” stories like ARLTY and a few others, I’ve completely forgotten what I wrote.  It feels weird!

It’s definitely a time/motivation thing.  My life is SO different than it was back then.  I had a low pressure job and plenty of time to write at work.  Two years ago, I moved to the company I work for now and things drastically changed. And then I moved out here so things changed again. I now have a much more high-pressure career in a Fortune 50 company so it just takes the life out of me creatively.  But I think it’s going to come back.  I’m so inspired out here because it’s so beautiful, even on the cloudiest, dreariest days.  And I have to write again - it’s part of me!
