Hola faithful readers!

I have exciting news. [ profile] secret_history is moving! Here's what's been going on in my head for the last few months, while I have been Not Writing.

I took a little time to try to figure out what I wanted out of my writing, and to establish some firm priorities for myself. Now that it's clear to me that I am never going to be a full-time, properly-published, "real" author, I asked myself what I wanted to do. Stop writing? Hah. Not likely. I go through dry spells, yes (writing takes a LOT of energy, and I don't have as much of it to spare as I'd like), but I can't imagine spending the rest of my life without writing at all.

What is it that I get out of writing, then? I don't write just for myself. Unlike many other people, I don't feel 100% fulfilment and satisfaction just from scribbling in a notebook which then gets shoved into a drawer or under my bed. I like the relationship I have with my readers, few though they might be. I like getting feedback (both good and bad, though I especially like the good), and I like the dialogue that springs up whenever I put up something that gets people thinking or talking.

That being said, I do want to have a little bit more legitimacy than just some random person on the internet with a LiveJournal dedicated to writing. I have seen a few websites go by with serials that have become quite popular by internet standards. So, I have decided to go the web-publishing route. I bought myself some webspace, and after some fruitless mucking around with Wordpress, I got my friend [ profile] joane (whom most of you know) to help me build an actual website with it. I figure it'll be good motivation for me to actually work on my writing, for one, and it'll give me a proper venue for my material, complete with archives and dedicated space for each opus, rather than spread out all over the place on a LiveJournal.

So it is with great pleasure that I announce the grand opening of Midnight Crossroads. Serials will begin updating next week, and soon I will be adding in the zombie novel as I edit each chapter. After that, other works will be going up as I write and polish them.

Thank you very much, dear readers, for having stuck with me through thick and thin. I hope you'll join me over at Midnight Crossroads, although I don't plan to abandon this journal entirely. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet, but I'll keep you apprised.
