It's official now, or more accurately, it public now: I'm no longer on the Story Team for the Legend of the Five Rings. I've been writing L5R stories for years now, and though I still love the game it was time for me to stop writing L5R stories. Shawn Carman, the Story Lead, wrote a really nice announcement about it that's posted on the L5R site. It made me blush a bit, but I've read it several times anyway.

Being on the Story Team created no small amount of frustration in my life, from various sources, but I'm still glad I did it. In was in that time I finally felt comfortable calling myself a writer. It was also the time I faced a lot of technique problems that I had been able to avoid as a fanfic writer but had to figure out NOW because I was on a deadline. ('Cause there is no way I would have stuck with the disambiguation problem of a fight scene with four female Matsu samurai if I had had the chance of just walking away from it. But I didn't have that luxury, and in the end I figured something out.)

So now I'm writing on my own ideas, which is amazing and terrifying. I don't think I know what I'm doing, but I'll figure something out.
