The hiatus has stretched out a bit longer than I intended. This is because I’ve simply lost all motivation to spork. The interest is just… gone. And at the moment, I’m not willing to put in the time required to finish this book, let alone the series, when I won’t be enjoying it at all. The hiatus is thus extended indefinitely; I may come back to things, but it’s perfectly likely I won’t.
I feel bad for leaving my readers here, but if I were to continue, it wouldn’t be fun for me, and thus it wouldn’t be fun for you. I’m sorry, but this is the way the cards have fallen.
So I’ve been posting haiku one at a time as I write them over on tumblr, and now that I’ve got a few I figure it’s time to collect them here.
Sometimes words fail me.
They jumble, crumble, turn to
Dust as they spill out.
Always, I miss you.
And yet, when we’re together,
I feel so alone.
And maybe we were
Fast and fleeting as a sigh,
But at least we breathed.
I look in your eyes
And know what drowning feels like,
Breathless and alive.

Sporks have been pretty scarce lately. This is a combination of business, forgetfulness, and most importantly, a lack of desire to spork. So I’m going to take a break for maybe a month or so, no more than six weeks, and come back fresh.
So it’s been a while since I’ve posted…. well, anything really. The simple reason for this is that I’d started to feel burnt out on haiku. I felt like I was just writing the same basic things over and over again, and that the quality of them was either slipping or, at the very least, not improving in any noticeable way. I got tired of writing them, so I stopped, and as haiku were the only thing I was (ostensibly) regularly posting, I just sort of vanished for a few months.
Anyway, the point of this post is to say hello (again). I’ve resumed writing haiku and plan to post them, though going forward I’m not even going to pretend they’ll be weekly. Instead, whenever I have enough (roughly five) I’ll post them. Numbering will continue as before.
I don’t have any plans to write reviews or anything like that in the near future, but that doesn’t mean I won’t if the fancy strikes me (just don’t expect it to be a regular thing).
This post is now far to long for something no one will ever read, so, uh… bye, I guess?
As I said in the last spork, I was planning on finishing FANG today so that I’d be done before the month-long break in November for NaNowriMo. However, I’ve just recovered from being sick, and while I would normally be up for doing the spork, all the coughing has left me with a lot of chest pain and I just can’t do it. Sorry! :/
