You guys may have noticed my lack of activity on the wiki as well as a previously-unseen erratic nature to my commenting presence in recent months, after being so consistent in years prior. Ever since I came back from my vacation in mid-June, I haven't been myself when it came to maintaining my duties as one of the main rollbacks on the wiki. I think what happened was that I stopped being vigilant once I returned after putting the effort to contribute everyday for nearly all the past year, and then have the streak snapped while I was on my vacation. After nearly two months since my return, I've come to the conclusion that I'm lazy and not willing to put in the time right now. How else can I explain it? It doesn't help that my junior year of university (that's 3rd year for those who don't know what the "Junior" stands for) will commence in a short couple of weeks and as a result, even more resources will be allocated away from my duties here.
To readers of my long-stunted fanon series Natsu, it's been a long time since I published a chapter (not since Aug. 4 of last year) and I feel I owe you an explanation for the abrupt stoppage. I've been mired in a writer's block ever since that last chapter, and though I have managed to get some paragraphs down on paper I'm still far from publishing the next installment and I intend to write a good bit more as compensation for the absence (inasmuch as why Mad Men debuted a two-part opener for its fifth-season premiere back in March, because a new episode hadn't aired in 18 months at that time). I acknowledge that the stress of that could lead back into another writer's block, but my reluctance to designate my fanon as inactive indicates that I still am trying to get underway and that I haven't abandoned it or you, the readers of the still-fledgling series. All I ask is for some more time and more motivation before I can continue. Lastly on this topic, I feel I have to apologize to my editor for the lack of progress. Ultimate, if you're reading this, I want you to know that I feel remorseful for any possible hints of impatience that you may or may not have expressed during your correspondences with me as well as other activities. Indeed you are my editor and I have at times tried to keep you in the loop, but the obvious shortcomings of the story have had me put you off in the interim. When I get back to working on it, I'll try to get you back in., including
As for the rest of the users on the wiki who count on my presence on the site, let it be known that I will try to get back to some semblance of regularity in my duties, so that my position will revert from ceremonial to active once again. All I ask from you is patience and hope that I return in good time.
