Some things…

Hey guys…It’s been a while…

First of all, you may have noticed I recently uploaded a story commission; this means I’m now finished with what commissions I had left in queue. However, I don’t think I’ll open up for commissions again anytime soon, for a few reasons:

– I want to start writing stories for myself and work on older ones that have been on the backburner for too long.
– I need to work on my personal life as much as I can to where I can feel fully content with my current situation. It’s much better than where I was at a year ago, but there is some areas that need improvement.
– I want to start reading more; this can range from stories I find online or others share with me, or from the number of books I own that have been sitting on my shelf as decoration.
– I may start writing stories for free/PWYW via ko-fi, mainly in terms of a YCH, regardless if others’ character(s) play a major or minor role in the story. I may keep this limited to friends, though, and I’m not considering these as requests.
– I did have an actual YCH story idea in mind, but I may just scrap it or rework it and write it as a personal story. Might have this one include other people’s characters, if they are willing to allow me to use them.
– I might just close requests and trades/collabs for now; again, I want to write for myself.

A lot of this I should have done when I first joined the fandom, rather than take on commissions as soon as I had an identity established. But, I guess better late than never, eh?

Will I get published, who knows? Will I decide to self-pub later down the line? Maybe. But the first step I need to do is write, and write, and write.

As a side note: I no longer RP. Please don’t ask or I will ignore you. I no longer have the desire to do so, nor do I have the time anyway anymore.

Ring of Redemption

Here’s a story I wrote a while back that was originally intended for submission in ROAR 9; unfortunately, I didn’t get in, even though the editor said she enjoyed reading this. After that, I put this one away for a while and thought about either submitting it to another anthology (and fit said anthology’s theme), post it online, self-publish this, or expand on it as far as I can and see where it goes. Personally, I felt this one was good as-is, story-wise, but I’ve been unable to find relevant anthologies due to life constraints; so, I decided to take a look at this one last time, clean it up, and post it to my galleries.

Also, this story is dedicated to two friends of mine: Natasha and Robert, both of whom are tigers (and love boxing). All three of us have dealt with too much shit in our lives and, to a degree, are still dealing with shit nowadays.

I hope you guys enjoy reading this as much as I did writing it!!!
