I feel terribly guilty that I'm not using this site, after everything that went into it. But I haven't written anything at all lately. I've been pretty deep into, well, web work, and actually producing content is a different train of thought.

I have a few ideas here and there, but they never really progress far enough to actually be turned into anything. At best I've managed to write a little bit of documentation; but frankly, technical writing does a great job of hiliting most of my main weaknesses as a writer. Or at least, what I perceive as my main weaknesses as a writer.

I never did get around to working more on Cracks, either, which is quite unfortunate. I am still owed a review of a first 3, and now I'm thinking of just holding onto it. I have had an idea that goes along with something chatty and I were working on for an RPG, but I dunno. It'd be a pretty hefty project and I just don't have the time to invest into it unless I completely re-organize my priorities somehow. And that would mean divesting myself of a lot of my open source commitments to Drupal, and at the moment I don't foresee that.

I guess this will remain on the back burner for awhile, but it will be a nice reminder that I do intend to get back to it, and keep it there. The nice thing is that there isn't really a time limit on writing. One doesn't need to be young and hip to write successfully, and one doesn't need to be completely current with some topic in order to succeed in it. Perhaps another point in my life will be the right point to do this.
