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 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. ♥️♥️

This vacation thing is going a lot worse than I thought. Guess I didn't realize how drained of energy I was but since the 30th, all I do is sleep and eat and stare at the words I wrote months ago. 
          
          It's hard y'all. I have no clue why, how, why now? I was ready to take it on. I still have 4 full days to do my job properly and give you updates. 
          
          I'll have something, that's for sure. I'm just no longer sure what and how much of it.

lovely__seokjinnie

@annieDD that's alright! You sound like you're burnt out, and that can't be helped by anything other than time to relax and get your inspiration back. Don't push yourself to write if you don't think you'll be satisfied with it. Take care of yourself, alright?

Well, ya girl is officially on her vacation! (PAID! PAID! No more freelancer lifestyle, viva la stable employment!)
          
          I will have A LOT of time to write! 
          
          So, let's hear it! What do you want more? Give me some suggestions? 
          
          It could be an update to an existing story (yes, even two night stand... -.-), it could be a rewrite of something I have pulled from wattpad for that very purpose or one of the MANY, MANY new stories I have ongoing... like KC spinoff... Min Yoongi one shot... 
          
          I'm taking suggestions. Love yous, have a very merry happy holiday season <3

Merry Christmas to all of you who are celebrating ❤️
          
          It was just a regular day for me, except I had a day off, which I originally wanted to spend on writing BUT AS ONE DOES, I struggle big time and now I have less than 20hr to finish and edit the final part of Kitchen Confidential.
          
          I noticed some of you were a bit surprised that it is coming to an end but it was always meant to be a oneshot, but it got a bit out of hand *nervous laughter*
          
          Once I wrap that one up... It's anyone's game. I want to continue Daddy Day Care and continue with my Bon Voyage with BTS series (Jimin's story has been up for ages!) and rewrite a bunch of my older stuff... So many stories to write and so little time... As promised, I will do my best to write my butt off during my vacation so wish me luck. Love yous ❤️
