I was never one of those people who announce Hey, I’m taking a social media break, see you on the other side! and then make a big Hey I’m back when it’s over. When I need a break I just have one. Usually without any control over it because of real-life things. There have been a lot of real-life things.
I’ve returned to my comfort-writing, which of course is fanfiction. Oh boy. It does me such good to write and get feedback and have no pressure. I’ve also done a lot of painting over the last year – I used to paint as a teen, and now I am again, which feels right.
My writing is pretty much on autopilot as it has been for a long time – but with occasional flashes where I feel I’ve grasped at something real. I know I’m still too tired to do a lot of real stuff. plus, too much real-life right now.
So here’s an impulse blog post with some paintings and a reminder to watch Our Flag Means Death because it is the most awesome (silly, romantic, funny) thing to appear in such a long time. And it has pirates. Watch it!
Here are some paintings. You know where to find my fanfiction. No prizes for guessing it currently involves pirates. And romance.
