Hello! Nice to meet you. I'm Kage and welcome to my personal livejournal. :D

Not sure if you'll get much out of this journal since it's, again, (mostly) all personal crap, but whatever. It wasn't always this way so maybe you're still here from when it was more than life ramblings and are now sitting there going "But where did all the stories and bullshit go?" Well, bullshit is still here. That's a part of me, I'm afraid.

As for the stories, I decided over a year ago that I didn't particularly want to keep putting my writing up on this journal. Why? To be honest, I needed someplace to put it to temper back that need to share and show off what I wrote, but at the same time I've never been comfortable with people reading those same stories. Call it stupid, I don't care. I've now set up a writing journal and feel much better for it. I can post all the stupid ideas that splash through my mind mid-daydream and I don't have to worry about culling out the bad stuff for fear someone will think it just that. That was always a big deal with me, the never-ending "Is this bad? Is this stupid? What if someone, especially that nameless watcher from the depths of lj, absolutely hates this and wishes I'd stop clogging up their f-list with drivel? What if what if what if---?!"

So yeah. I'm stepping back from all of that. It's hard to be creative when worries and fears are taking up all the attention of your imagination. I still have those worries, but I can get beyond it now. It's good this way. I'm happier now. Hopefully no one minds this change. :) On the other hand, this continues to be my main account so while I don't post stories on this journal anymore, I'll still use it to participate in contests and communities. Anything written for a community can be found there or later (after further editing) on my writing journal.

Also, as you can clearly see, my livejournal is now friend-locked. It sort of was before but I've gone through and completely locked it. Sorry, but as I said these journals are mostly personal ramblings and rantings. As such, I'm not holding back too terribly on details of my life, things I don't care if friends know about but that are a bit odd for the average bear to know about me. If you still want to read them and know anyway, whatever, I don't care. Friend away! Just figured I'd give everybody that warning.

Carry on, lovely visitors. <3
