INDEFINITE HIATUS ANNOUNCEMENT Okay, that’s out of the way. I know most people often just skip over these announcements so I wanted to make sure y’all know where it’s at. And if someone wants to read what why and how, please do. Last three weeks have been incredibly difficult for me. Since September, I have been forced to focus on my job more than I have ever had to before. I was looking forward to spending some time off and I fully intended to do nothing but *write*. And I did. I would open the doc and my schedule and I would write. Write and delete, write and delete, write and delete, because I hated every single word of it. I *know* my writing and I know how good it can be and this wasn’t it. And I’ve made the supid mistake of promising you updates, which made the guilt only worse. And of course, none of you were pressuring me - I did that to myself. The truth of the matter is, I’m not the same person I was in 2018, when I started writing for BTS. Some of the comments that I used to find amusing now leave a bitter taste in my mouth, even tho I know very well that they aren’t actually malicious. I’m not in a good space and that’s something I have to admit, both to myself and to you guys. That said, I absolutely plan on fixing that. I’m not giving up on anything. I will leave my current work published. I'll be more active on tumblr, because I have very recently become a member of several networks who require my activity. If I post something there, I will cross post it here as well. I’ll try and organize my time and life better. I’ll try to figure out what and how I’m writing in 2021, a full three years after I first started. I stand by what I said - I will finish the stuff I started. Thank you for reading this, and even more so, my work. I love and am thankful for every single one of you. Whether you have been here since 2018 or since yesterday. Whether you only read one of my stories or all of them. See you sometime soon. Ana <3
@annieDD we just want you back happy and healthy pls!!! I hope this break will help you get better and that you'll be once more a person who is satisfied with what they write!
@annieDD I'm gonna give you some advice that you probably don't need. Paulo Coelho said in his book 'The Alchemist', "if you promise things that you don't have yet, you'll lose your desire to work towards gaining what you've promised." You promise us a lot of things, and I hope they don't weigh on you too much, with the pressure of feeling the need to fulfil all your promises. Don't worry so much about reassuring us that you'll write, and that you'll come back. We believe you if you just say so, there's no need to make promises. If you're stressed about updating/writing, then say so. Your state of mind/mental health is so much more important than a weekly update. Please take care of yourself before promising to take care of us. ♥️♥️
