An Update On What Is And What Can Never Be and the state of the fic.

On the 18th, it will be six years since I started writing What Is And What Should Never Be. I used to be able to write pretty prolifically, but as time has gone on and my life has changed, I've found finding inspiration as well as time to write lacking. I have been writing part 10 for a while now, possibly a year or so. I just can't seem to finish it. BUT I am going to try to. What I'd really like to do is finish that part or rewrite it if I have to, tie up some loose ends and then end with another part which would be an epilogue. That may end up being just as long as a typical part or chapter would be. I hope it won't disappoint but I think I need to cut ties with this fanfic. I loved writing it when I could and it holds a special place in my heart, but now it's become a burden in the back of my mind. To finally finish it would make me feel better. I don't know if I'll write anymore fanfic after this; when I was younger, I wrote and wrote like crazy, especially back in high school. But now it's ten years later and I'm working full time and other things occupy my time, and as time has gone on I find myself writing less and less. And my yearning to write has waned. Anyway, when I finally get around to completing it all, which I think will be soon, I really hope everyone will enjoy the rest of the fic and think it stands up. Thank you for all your support and kind words through the years!!
