To My Dearest Readers,
Hi everyone! I know I've disappointed all of you for my lack of chapters and instability of updates. It's been a year and yet, I'm still in chapter 8. And for that, again, I am really, truly, very very sorry.
I know you may not be interested but I just wanted to share ...life has not been so good to me and my passion (writing) for the past few months...or years actually? Hehehe.. I've been constantly restricted on doing what I love..since, if we are to be realistic, it's really hard to earn a living in the creativity department...unless, you're really lucky and all, you know...or gifted. This has kept me wondering if there's any worth at all to what I'm doing. I'm not that good anyway, hehehe. Then I thought, I'd just write as a hobby, though. Since I still...and really, love writing. But loving it is not enough. My love of it was not enough.
Oh, how I wish I could just spend all my days thinking and writing all I want! How I wish, i don't need to work and be stressed by a job I don't even like...just to survive. How I wish, that I don't need to try to get along with people I don't really like for the sake of professionalism...and just be myself. How I wish that instead of learning and getting trained for things I need to perform the job I don't like, that I could spend that time and effort for writing instead. Yeah, they're all wishes, and wishes they'll be kept..since I'm a coward. I don't have the courage to step out of this comfort zone and challenge the unknown. I'm not brave enough to take the risk. Because if I do, it will only cause my whole life, my future, my path.
But then again, I thought, what path am I building? What road am I going? Is this what I really want my life to be? And maybe, some of you have been faced with these same questions yourselves. If you are, please give me some advice, hehehe.
Anyways, enough of my ramblings. What I really wanted to say though is that...even if life has been hard for me, and for all of us for sure, we keep on pressing on. And for me, whenever I'm kind of losing hope in writing, I just go back to my stories, read all of your comments and reviews which are all so dear ...very dear... to me.
Basically, I just wanted to say.. "Thank You"...very very much. For sticking with me, for all your encouragement, for all your advice, for checking up on me...someone you don't even know. For all the support, for all the love, and hope you gave me. I know I'm still half baked when it comes to writing, I'm not even a professional but I hope I can at least give you the best. Though I can't promise a daily update, I'll do my best to do a weekly update at least. Anyways, I've already pre-written a few chapters ahead.
I hope you continue supporting me on this journey even if I'm still lacking in many ways. But really, from the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you!
Thank you very much to:
Again, thank you everyone. And the same thank you goes to all the other thousand silent readers (those who don't comment or vote but still added me in their library). Thank you very much.
I could still remember the day that I only have 10 or 20 readers, and only 1 added me in their library. But now, our family has grown..and I hope it continues to grow. It's okay if I don't get published or don't get a contract, at least I've got all of you! Thank you once again.
Let's all continue to press on and keep moving forward!.
