I’m just really, really behind.

Let’s call this my official “return to the internet” journal. So, what have I been doing all this time? For the past few months, I’ve been finishing a draft of an outline for a story. Beginning this year, I wanted to have something complete enough to lie fallow a few months before starting to script and thumbnail. I was planning to be done by the end of February.

Needless to say, that, uh, didn’t happen. Then I tried for end of March. Well, that didn’t happen either (yes, there is a trend happening here). So I did not finish until last weekend. I’m sure this says nothing good about me and deadlines. From the end of February, I started to limit my internet usage so I have more time to work on my story. By March, I was completely disconnected from the internet (figuratively). Honestly, outside of the few times I’ve responded to comments randomly, I’ve been on the internet only to check my bank account or my library account. I did not log on twitter or tumblr and I completely signed out of chat. My intent wasn’t avoiding people of shunning the internet in a fit of pique, but at the end of February I realized that if I felt like wanting to cry frustrated tears because I felt like I wasn’t doing anything then it was probably a good sign I needed to focus on my work.

I’m sorry that I just disappeared without so much as a word but I thought it best to just plunge in. I honestly I would be done by the end of March. How wrong I was. But here I am with an outline more or less finished, I am happy to say. Not quite where I want it because some plot threads are giving me trouble, but these are things I think will be better dealt with when I get some distance and perspective on the current outline.

I am here to stay, unless paying for internet and phone services bankrupts me or my computer dies, which is actually is something I might want to worry about soon, considering the sounds it was making last night. Sounds that do not bode well for my hard drive. I’ll hopefully catch up soon. I still kind of feel like last year is chasing after me with so many things I wanted to do but didn’t get done. It’s a strange thing being on the internet after so long.

I hope you enjoy what I have to share. Thank you so much for sticking with me.
