I was going to make this post about how I feel my commitment waning for TR lately. Contain those gasps of amazement! I know it seems unthinkable given all of those posts I've made about it. But I have learned a lot about myself and about the kind of RP I enjoy. Tabula Rasa is an amazing game filled with so many talented storycrafters and tellers. The mods have put so much work into the game. Period. Just so much work. It's amazing.

But if I'm putting up a post to have people convince me of why the game is so awesome that I need to keep playing it, I think I've made up my mind.

I'm not going to quit just yet. There's a side of me that has a difficult time differentiating when I am just giving up or when I am just being doggedly determined for a lost cause. Am I just wanting to give up because I've been overwhelmed lately with work and illness or am I just wanting to keep playing a game because I would hate to a) see my pups go home b) miss the muns I adore there? I should get myself on the mend before I make final decisions.

So that being said, I have decided that I like a bit more free form with my RP. I have a short attention span when it comes to boring and mundane. I want fantasy and funny and silly and random. Pokemon and clones were some of the most fun RP moments. And yet so was Harry Potter. Six Word Stories is great for the non-committal types, but I do have moments where I want something more.

I was thinking about putting up some random stories/RPs that anyone could tag in. I don't know if anyone at all would be interested in doing this, but I'm pretty sure I have talked myself into at least giving it a try. Here's to me not backing out or getting too busy.

On the TR aspect of things, maybe I've bitten off more than I can chew.

PS Remember I mentioned blood work on Thursday? I've got this heinous small bruise forming. It's a bit painful too. Hooray for tiny veins, I guess. =\

I've often found that when real life takes over with a vengeance RP just sort of fades away. How many times have I been intensely into a game to suddenly find myself feeling apathetic and not having enough hours in the day to really dedicate myself to playing.

In fact, I think the only reason I gave into TR was that it allowed for those sort of real life breaks.

*hugs* Take care of yourself & feel better.

I just assume she's being cold and calling him a pig and stuff. If you're up for it, we can still finish the New Years EP (I haven't linked it yet.) Joey did leave all the sundresses the island gave her to spite Pacey.

If you have any questions email me - I've been staying off aim these days.

Like Maile said, it's totally normal for enthusiasm for RP to wane when real life has been busy or intense. Obviously, if you felt you needed to leave, we'd understand, but keep in mind also that TR has an extremely flexible participation requirement to allow for breaks, so you don't have to decide right away or feel pressured. As long as you make as little as 1 comment within 3 months, you can come back at anytime and it's fine. So if you're unsure, you can take your time to figure things out.
