Truth be told, I was never really away. Due to circumstances mostly out of my control, my internet presence became unreliable. In my opinion, it became easier to just assume I couldn't post than to post during the random occasions when I could. The internet was both more and less reliable than I'd planned, but neither was enough to change my plans for what I could do.
But that's over. I'm back and everything is working normally, or as normally as such things work in my world.
While I was gone, work continued. I'd like to think that I did more work in the last two months than I did for the previous twelve, but it's hard to tell. Like writing, you can write a hundred pages and then save only two. I played less games than I usually did and actually did things I'd been planning to do for years. That's pretty good for me.
Anyway, I look forward to posting more.
