A lot of my projects depend upon the mood I'm in at the time.
Sasxsek has definitely had the most attention but it also
requires a lot of home too. My other conlangs usually sprout of
of an idea, and sometimes I'll play with the idea for a while
until I get bored then move on to something else I've taken a
fairly long break from S:S: mainly because I was getting a bit
burned out working on it, but now I'm starting to get an urge to
continue it along with a couple of my other favorite projects
like Deini and the loglang without a name.
