Seems like old habits never die, and my old and worst habit is having accounts on online communities.
Right now, it's an actually old habit, since I haven't been part of any online thing for a while. Last one was a writing board on the long gone 2007, but the page died on 2010. We had some sweet drama, but that's a story I won't tell today.
That's a time most of Dreamwidth users were too busy with livejournal, and that's a phase I'd love to have had. I went straight from my dear writing board to Facebook, and Tumblr makes me feel like I've missed something.
So yeah, here I am starting a journal that could totally be a personal blog. Actually, seeing how many people use this kind of thing, I might use it as a personal blog, among fandom and such. Speaking of which, I hope I can find my place on my favorite fandoms, since I've been so out of them lately. I just hope I don't become the person who arrives too late to the party, so everyone is chatting with someone else and the person I came with is making out with some random buff dude.
Anyway, I'm kind of excited about this. I really hope I keep this journal updated. I'm going to keep it open for a while, and see how things develop.

I feel you. I haven't really been involved in fandom online since AOL. Yikes. Had a brief foray into a LJ account, which apparently got purged because it had been so long since I was there. I'm currently trying to figure out what I'm doing since other than Supernatural and Marvel (which I love but have never written in), my shows are a decade and some change out of date.

I feel like I'm at the party alone, sitting in the corner wondering what the cool kids are doing these days.

I just recently found Archive of Our Own but am still trying to figure out how to maneuver around there. Sad, but true. I most likely will reestablish my x-files connection, but there's sonmething about writing in a fandom that is current. Watching the episode and getting all kinds of ideas, or addressing things you felt were dropped and then ignored. I miss that, it was fun.

I don't mind at all perusing my journal. It's very sparse, but I guess since I'm doing it more for me than anything else, that's okay!

Love your avatar, by the way. Columbia rules.

I just finally got AO3 figured out, sort of. I'm hoping it gives me incentive to write. I dusted off some of my old stuff and am taking a look at it to see how much I hate it. Ha! Typical, I know. I have to do some rewrites, mostly due to mid-scene perspective changes, but I'll probably toss them up anyway. Interestingly, one story is based around attending the midnight performance of Rocky Horror.

It makes me feel better that everybody seems to have a love/hate relationship with their writing. It seems we are all one in the masochism of creative process.
