Well, okay, that was mean of me. And I apologize to the LadyBrick. ^^; Now, here’s the payoff.
I’m never going to stop writing. I am physically incapable of stopping; any time I go into a lull or try to stay away, it pulls me back in. I’m never going to fry my old works (even if March of the Pigs is embarassing to me now) and I’ll make sure they’re always available online for your reading enjoyment. And I don’t care about being published, at least not in this stage of the game… I’m doing this for the sheer love of it. My day job pays enough, why do I need more? Why give up my terrific link with my audience just for added popularity? I have enough popularity right now — sometimes more than I can handle, even.
So, here’s to you… the fans. The casual quiet ones who read and enjoy right on up to the hardcore ones who post a reply to every update I make and have read my entire back library. You’re the ones I really do this for; it’s for me, yes, but it’s not JUST for me. I’d put everything I wrote into a desk drawer never to see light of day if I didn’t want to entertain the crowd. I’m happy that you’re happy with it. And if you’re not happy with it, if I do get that depressing e-mail from some cretin who says I stink and I have no business writing… the rest of you are the reason I go on anyway.
Now, tokens of my (and your!) appreciation… 2Forum is updated, and we’ve got brand new UE Fanart. Show the love to our fanartists, folks; I only write the words, they paint the pictures worth a thousand words. Remember, there are plenty of ways to show the love other than fanart; there’s always donations to the author, which are ALWAYS appreciated, or e-mail, or journal replies, or giant butter sculptures of my mighty visage. Awwwyeah. *_* …okay, I’ll stop now.
Peace out, and have an entertaining Apey First.
