Gulp,


Er. Yes. I made that announcement. The one about Chocolatey Goodness. It's here. As I said to wolfling at far too early in the a.m., let the games begin.

Aside from being exhausted, I'm curiously... unsure. Dunno if I feel good or bad. Scared or relieved. Been muzzy-headed all day after waking up with a neckache from hell, and it's finally caught up into full-blown brainfog. If there's such a technical term.

To bed, I am.

Let me return the favor, so to speak, and offer hugs. I saw your announcement. You done good. Now people will wail and gnash teeth. But *you* know that you have the weight off your back for awhile. So it should help. *hugs*

Thanks. ;-)

You know, there hasn't been any wailing or gnashing yet. Maybe I underestimated people's ability to understand.

Thnks everybody, btw. For, you know, understanding.

You did the right thing, for the right reasons. While I adore the CG series and certainly have been among those hoping for more soon, I think this is the best thing you can do for your own sake. When you are able to have fun with CG again, it will happen, and this way, at least there shouldn't be as many people putting pressure on you, in addition to that you were placing on yourself.

for what it's worth have my 2p, not that you haven't heard it from me before. People love CG because you are a good writer, but anyone who's opinions are worth caring about isn't going to be selfish enough to expect you to carry on writing it if it's not fun anymore. so try not to let any wailing and gnashing get the better of you, though i realise that's probably easier said than done. i for one love CG but it gets the same happy dance that all your stories get when they arrive in my inbox or whatever... you haven't given up writing, just put a hold on this.

Amy, just wanted to add my me too. I'm glad you're taking steps to deal with your angst around CG - even the most rabid CG fan doesn't want you to feel stressed about it (or at least they shouldn't!). The rest of CG will come when it comes, and in the meantime I'm happy to read pretty much anything you write. :)

And yes, brainfog is totally a technical term - check the lit around auto-immune disorders. It's possibly my least favorite symptom. I hope sleeping clears your head.

I am but a lowly reader, but let me add that (or actually repeat what others have said befor me), yeah, you done good. CQ is a thing of beauty and wowness, and I do hope you'll return to it some day - I capitalized that in my head, gah! - but fanfic can't be fun and good, let alone great, unless the writer is enjoying herself.

I, myself, ran myself ragged with a few fics in comicfandom, and a few AU things in Buffy, by starting to plot a thing and then it becoming a huge monsterthing, and when I tried to make myself write it, I only ended up not liking it and hating it and hating myself, almost, for not making the thing to be the thing that I wanted it to be. (I need a bigger vocab to make sense ;p)

But, rambling aside, that you're happy with your writing adn your whatever is all that really matters in this, so, uhm, since I'm forgetting the rest of the stuff I was going to say and I feel stupid just babbling, because that's what I'm doing right now, but good gods, I can't stop. Uhm, yeah. *offers another chocolate bunny (they're not out to conquer the world - probably)*
