Patchie [Explains]

I've been quiet.

I think I've needed to be. It's not that I'm planning something big or am super busy (although I am super busy, but that's not the reason). It's not that I've lost interest or think I'm boring or am not accomplishing anything. I wasn't offended by a comment or post, I haven't found a new outlet, and I'm not trying to move on to something bigger or better.

I just...stopped writing.

It's also my favorite time of year where I get to play dress up every weekend at the Renaissance Festival. I spend all week thinking about it. I talk daily with Alex, who I met working at faire and who I've realized has snuck her way into being one of the best friends I've ever had, and we hype each other up for the weekend ahead. What to wear? What shows to catch? Who of our friends will be there? Should we try on new garb? What food do we want? Oh my god guys, the food. Seriously. If you've never been to a faire, and I mean a good faire, you are missing out. The food is incredible.

It's my happy place. If I can't move to The Cape, I will spend 9 weekends out of the year playing dress up and taking too many pictures and being told my strangers that I look pretty.

Well, this year it's 8 weekends because I was finally talking into Dragon*Con in Atlanta. It knocked a couple things off my Birthday List, which I will write about soon. And maybe Dragon*Con will get its own post. Or maybe not. I stopped writing, remember?

Which brings me back to my original point. I think I'm on a bit of a hiatus. Still check in, I may get a burst of inspiration (motivation?) and post a thing or two here and there. Keep writing - I still read yours. I just need to officially step back, and not for any reason I can put my finger on.

If you want to stay up to date, you can find my photography at Patchie [Photography], and my cosplay/costuming adventures at Patchie Cosplay.

I'll see you soon. :-)
