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.
