Just in time for Halloween, I’m back from the dead! Sorry for not posting anything in three months. I kind of knew I would probably want to take a writing hiatus after I finished Sick as My Secrets, but since I finished it so early in the summer, I also thought I might go ahead and start a new story. Thanks for voting in the poll I put up in July. I played around with just about all of those ideas at some point over the summer, but didn’t make much progress with any of them, hence my unannounced hiatus. I still plan to write at least some of them when time and inspiration are on my side (ER crossover for sure; that one’s already in the works), but I’m not working on anything right now. Knowing how I’ve been the last few years, I probably won’t do much writing until winter break and maybe not until next summer. But when I’m not working and have that extra time and energy to devote to it… bring it on!
In the meantime, I did start a short story toward the end of summer that I did not finish in time to post before school started again. Shocker, I know. The good news is that after not writing anything for two months, I opened it up last night and started working on it again, and I was able to finish it tonight. This is actually great news for me because the story is kind of timely, and if I didn’t finish it this month, it would have been an epic failure on my part. So thanks, Christopher Columbus, for the three-day weekend!
The new short is called The Call, and it’s posted in its entirety on the Short Stories page. I hope you enjoy it!
In all honesty, I probably won’t post anything else for awhile unless this triggers a sudden burst of writing productivity, but I promise I’m not quitting fanfic – just taking a break so I can live my life without feeling guilty all the time for not updating like I did the last two years of writing SAMS. If I ever decide it’s more than “just a break,” I will let you know. I won’t just disappear like so many writers do. Thanks for sticking with me, and again, I hope you like the new story!
