I finally brought up enough courage to log in again…
It’s been a while, and I deeply apologize for those who still follow me for my sudden death and long-time disappearance. Some life issues happened, plus I was a little… traumatized (too strong) by a certain experience with anibloggers during Otakon and wanted nothing to do with aniblogging for a while. I think I may be recovering…
Nevertheless, given my personal and career commitments nowadays, it simply isn’t possible for me to blog anime anymore — Major Arcana as an anime blog is forever dead.
Good thing I never made it to be an anime blog. I think that’s part of where I went wrong was when I pretended to use this place as an anime blog.
In fact Major Arcana originally started up as a project/personal blog, and I fully intend to return it to its roots. I might still write about anime-related stuff every once a while, and definitely try to squeeze time for light novels again (Because almost nobody writes about light novels!!! Does the anifandom read anything without pictures!?!? Honestly the lack of translations for exceptional light novels, especially outside the seinen sector like Hakushaku to Yousei or Saiunkoku Monogatari is one of the greatest tragedies of anifandom!!! /rant). But honestly, there are more than enough people aniblogging as it is.
Far too many… and they don’t need me to squeeze in, and I never did like crowds…
As for projects go, well using Major Arcana as a VNRPG project blog was a chapter of my college that won’t return. But, after I stopped blogging last year, I finally realized what part of me I had to shelve for one-and-half years to make this blog work. My specialty has never been about building my own personality, a skill rather needed for bloggers. Nope, I’d much rather go back to the creation process, work on settings and characters— besides, there are few things that allow one to appreciate others’ stories more than writing some yourself.
In 2011, for the first time in my life, I managed to finish NaNoWriMo.
It’s been going through revisions upon revisions of editing ever since, thanks to my friends whom I (forcibly) drafted~
So there you have it. My love of light novels fully extends to writing them… and that’s where I’ll be taking this blog down again.
But for those who followed me to talk about anime, well I guess this is a (belated) goodbye! \o/ Hope to catch you every so while, still around the sphere.
