It was bound to happen

The great unappeasable god of brain maladies has descended upon me once again. I was hoping my brief period of being able to write and concentrate properly wouldn't be quite so brief, but what I hope and what happens are not always in synch. Hopefully I'll have better news after I talk to my doctor again.

In the meantime, the GRXS is not abandoned. I have actually worked on it in the last month, I just haven't managed to finish an actual installment. That's partly because A) we've reached a point where the major plotlines of the original univere are kind of dealt with for now, so I'm essentially just stalling until we get to the next idea used and B) because while I do have some ideas for what's going to happen next, I'm not happy with the execution of them so far. I've rewritten one scene in particular about four times now, and I'm still not happy with it.

Now I may wind up just saying "screw it" and going past that scene even if it doesn't live up to my own standards. That's to be determined. I know you guys are all used to me telling you how poorly I think the GRXS has been written so far (and you've all been very nice in claiming otherwise, which is clearly just to make me feel better), but that belief still stands for me. I'm not thrilled with the quality; particularly the dialogue. I'm afraid I've been kind of half-assing it.

No, I'm not afraid of that, I'm quite certain of that. That's because that was supposed to be the whole point of this GRXS in the first place. It was supposed to be the story that I could half-ass to get back into the swing of things, only now I'm all annoyed with myself for writing something not up to my own standards.

(PS: I'm also annoyed with myself because side-effects currently have me knee-deep in mood-swing-depression-land, so take everything I say with a grain of salt.)

Anyway, just thought I'd point out that I'm still here. Don't give up on me just yet.
