First of all, I'd like to apologize to my opponent in Sacred Forest for going completely silent about the entire OCT. The same goes for those in Tourist Trap.
See, I've barely been online and haven't communicated much at all. There're two reasons for this.
One, I've just begun my studies as a chemist at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, which immediately smacked me into the ground (18 hour schedules are cruel). My free time has been limited to a few hours a day at best.
That's not the real issue, though. My motivation's shriveled up and died. I can't write.
I've got things circling around in my head, but they're stuck. It's hamstringing me every time I try to write for Sacred Forest, work with the judges for Tourist Trap, or even show up on Skype. As a consequence, I've been reluctant to even appear online. That's done nothing but further damage my spirit.
I'd very much like to change that.
Although I'm not going to promise the impossible, I will be doing my best to get my first round of Sacred Forest up in the next two weeks. Once that's done with, I'll be trying to catch up on what I've missed. My inbox is a disaster and there're comments/notes that have just been sitting there for weeks.
I'm not sure how to explain these feelings, but with some luck, I'll be able to banish them for good.
Until next time,
