Any of you who watch me may have noticed my inactivity lately. While I am not leaving dA (how could I, when joining this community was a turning point in my artistic development?), I am winding down.

I'd like to say that the stress of balancing work and house maintainance with family and social time doesn't leave me much room to relax; 12hr shifts, 6 days a week, pretty much leaves me just two hours to clean the house and remind my family that I am indeed still alive.
However, I do get a lot of time in work (depending on where I am working) to carry on with my fics. So that isn't really the excuse.

I no longer have a scanner, and without accompanying art to my fics (and new characters), I don't really want to post new chapters. However, I have used bases before and, if I truly wanted to, I could takes pictures on my phone and touch them up in MSpaint. I have done digital art long before I had a scanner. So that isn't really an excuse, either.

Unfortunately, it is a lack of passion for it. I have a long story to write for Raising Teagan, and I'd very much like to get comics drawn up to illustrate the origins of some of my characters. And the more I draw and write for Silver and Lorraine (as well as five other linked characters), the more I want them to have an original story outside of DC fan AU.

Added to that, I have been playing with two original stories of my own (a poetic short story, and a long webcomic), and with absolutely no starting point or preset boundaries, I am having trouble finding a setting; I know what characters I want in it, and roughly how I want their lives to be, but the story and aspects of it...they trouble me. Freedom is very restricting.

If you want proof that I am still alive, I go on tumblr very frequently (loppytaffy.tumblr.com). It is not a Teen Titans or DC blog in any way, shape, or form, nor is it a place where I upload my art. It is where I get involved with other franchises and am just an observing fan.

Aside from that, eventually I will continue Raising Teagan, I will not leave this story unwritten. Thank you for sticking around.

I have a skype account but i need to redownload skype itself. I'd love to talk to you (I don't need comforting; I'm more enfuriated than upset, but talking is always good).
I think if I get enough money for christmas I'll just bite the bullet and get a tablet so I can draw onto PC directly, save so much trouble.

o.o Having a bad time, huh? Well, if you have a Skype, we can talk constantly and I'll provide you some company and comfort.

As for me, college's a pain. And so is my busy schedule. ^^;
Otherwise, I'm fine. Thanks for asking.
