I'm sure all of you are very annoyed by my journals. I am as well. However, this one is a little bit different.

Let me explain.


As you know, I have been very slow on updating Trey. Understatement of the year. Anyway, I have found myself in a very frustrating predicament. Obviously, I enjoy reading and writing, but I also have always been interested in music. These two interests have become difficult for me to juggle. I have found it very hard to divide my time between them at the same time. I am merely a novice in both categories, and there is so much I must learn to become good at either.

Allow me to deviate to explain further.
Writing. It is something I have enjoyed doing, but I lack extensive practice, as well as any proper teaching. As such, when I began writing Trey, I had literally jumped into writing the story, and what a mess it became. I practically began writing without planning the entire story. But I did plan it promptly after realizing my mistake. However, it is, in my opinion, terrible. It is full of holes, dull, and I honestly don't think it's current state would be very enjoyable to anyone. And along with that, I lack the proper experience and knowledge to properly execute the story with my words to make it... adequate.

Returning to discussion on balancing interests.
I have become very interested in music more now than ever, and that left me with a hard decision. I need to focus on something, otherwise I won't get anything done. (I have something to say later that will expand on that) So, I have chosen music.

Now, before you get the wrong idea, allow me to state something. I do intend to continue writing. Yes, you've heard this before, but hear me out. This time its different.

I am officially announcing a postponement of updates for When Trey Came to Town until further notice. Plain and simple. No 'sometime next week', no 'I'm working on it'. Progress has halted. I apologize to you all.

I will leave a notice on this DeviantArt page when I am resuming progress.

I am doing this for several reasons. As I explained before, I am currently focusing on music. Along with that, I have promised myself that I will complete Trey, and I will. And, as I also had mentioned, I enjoy writing, so I still want to continue. However, I need to focus on one thing at a time it seems.

I know this all sounds stupid and I seem lazy. Maybe I am. But there is one final point that I would like to bring up. This is what is making this whole situation very, very frustrating.

As I had mentioned before, I had problems sleeping. For a while, it got better. And then, it got worse. For several months now, I have been unable to sleep properly. I cannot fall asleep until late into the night. And because of this, I wake up, regardless of time, tired, sore, and very unmotivated.
This leaves me with little energy, and I have lost so much time that I can't make up, and that just makes me so frustrated.

I'm not looking for any kind of sympathy. I really don't want to be troubling you with my problems, but I wanted inform you of my decision and explain so you understand.

I know its been a long time, and this experience has become irritating, and I apologize for that.

Thank you for reading.


TL;DR
I haven't been sleeping well for months and am postponing Trey until further notice. During this time, I am following my other passion: music. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I am a brony (duh). My favorite pony is Twilight Sparkle. I enjoy reading, writing, movies, manga/anime, and music. My intent is to write enjoyable and awesome fan fiction for the brony community, and have fun while doing so!

Hey Pook!

I remember reading the first chapter of When Trey Came To Town way back when it first appeared on EqD. I think I was one of the first ten to comment, or some such, but to save you a search I'll just tell you again that I found it wholly entertaining and it gave me more than a few embarrasingly loud laughs.

I practically gasped when I saw you'd put me on DA watch. If I had more time, yours is one of the stories that I'd read, but sadly there aren't 36 hours in the day, and any procrastinating makes my inner writer go WHAT THE BLOODY F ARE YOU DOING PILLOCK BOY KICK UP YOUR STORIES SON. Bloody shame too - I did very much like the first chapter of Trey.

You have a good one Pook.

Wow.

I'm honored, truly. I was very surprised to find a comment from you on my page, especially one praising my writing. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your stories, and I marvel at how well you write (even your track draft was brilliant). You are very inspiring to me, and it is most uplifting to hear good things from you.

To be honest, I had only read your stuff recently. I do regret that, for I wish I could have read it sooner. I have been relatively incapable of writing for quite a while due to various reasons, but after going through everything in that file of yours, you have changed my thinking. I suppose in a sense, you have changed my life.

I've had a hard time prioritizing, and after hearing your story and the decision you had to make, I was inspired, motivated. It made me look at my life, and I realized I have not made the best of my time in working toward my interests for what I plan to do in life.

So, I want to thank you.
Thank you for writing an amazing story, I absolutely loved it.
Thank you for commenting, you do not know how much that means to me.
And thank you for changing my life, I've been stuck in a rut for far too long.

I very much look forward to reading Gwydion, and I hope you have fun writing it as well.

Thanks again, and have a good one.
