A few years ago, I said goodbye to this website. It was a very difficult decision, and when I shut it down, I missed it a lot. Alone In the Pretense was a huge part of my life, for a very long time.
I felt okay about my decision for a while. I just wasn’t into Hanfic and I wasn’t using the site. It felt like such a waste to keep it open, but in the last six months, I thought about buying a domain again because not only have my missed writing, but I’ve also really missed the sense of community that I used to have. And, of course, I’ve missed designing websites (not the coding so much).
I checked a while back to see what the status was on aloneinthepretense.org, and the domain was taken by someone else. I was pretty bummed about it because it just didn’t feel right.
So, after making a post on livejournal last night and mentioning how much I missed having a domain, I decided to check just for the heck of it. Turns our AITP was available again. It felt like kismet. So I bought the domain and hosting from A Small Orange and here I am, back again.
I’ve really moved away from writing fan fiction. I haven’t really read much of it lately either, but I do still love writing. I have several original stories in the works. I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to use the site just yet, but I would like to get back into sharing some of my writing.
It’s probably going to take a bit of time to get the site going again since I have some things to figure out, but I’m also participating in the July session of Camp NaNoWriMo. My username is still failed2say, so if you want me in your cabin this session, please add me!
