Stella Notecor


Hey guys!

I know I've been gone for a long time. Sorry! I've had a lot of personal issues lately. My depression and anxiety are terrible right now. Some of my family members have had bad health-related news. Plus, I got a promotion at work, which would seem like a good thing, but I HATE working retail, so I've been really stressed now that I'm full-time... especially since I don't get any benefits. Paid time off doesn't even start till next year, at which point I will hopefully be working as a teacher, not in retail, so it's not even like I can take a break every once in a while. The only good thing is that I'm making slightly more money. =/

Due to my life being insane, I haven't been writing much lately. None of my original fic has gone anywhere. To be honest, I'm tired of the criticism I keep getting on the two ebooks I have out there, and I'm not really looking forward to putting another book up only to get more criticism. At least when I post fanfic I mostly get nice comments. So my original fic is just on hold right now... I don't know for how long.

However, I have been working on my fanfic Kicked From Inside. If I can churn out three more chapters over the next two days, I'm going to start posting a chapter a day on here. I don't want to start posting until I'm sure I can finish though, hence the reticence. It's already up to almost 12,000 words, and I'm not even at the half-way mark on the fic... and the fic was only supposed to be 25k! Hopefully I don't get too far off the predicted word count. =)

Anyway, that's what's going on with me. I probably still won't be on here much, but if I can, I'll try to catch up with you guys more soon!
