I haven't used this Deviantart page like I should. I have no excuses for it. The lack of dedication and appreciation just didn't make the time and effort I put into my work worth it. What started as a hobby back in middle school has followed me into a career of art getting my high school diploma and later my associates degree in visual arts. As time wore on, I didn't feel motivated to do art. I would look over at classmates and see how their work was ten times better than mine.
One year I got my work into the local library for Autism awareness month. It felt great until the following year when I didn't manage to produce more art because art equipment is expensive. After the second time of hanging up paintings, sculptures and photographs it just doesn't seem satisfying when people shrug it off because they saw it last year.
The only thing I found that I could do with any computer was write. I typed up stories and fan fics in my free time. I felt it was a form of art I could do. And I enjoy it. I guess when it comes to writing, it's all in the mind. There's no fancy shading that has to be done, you know how it needs to look and how to describe it. I already feel changing from art to writing was a great choice.
What I'm trying to say is, I need a fresh start. There's too many bad memories associated with this account. Too many bridges burned. In order to feel free I'm creating a new account to focus on the book I'm writing. I just can't work with this one. I mean, holy mother of Ianite the last submission I did was back in 2012! I'll still keep this account around because I've watched too many people over the years. Maybe as a reminder at how far I've come.
Hopefully one day I'll be able to come to this site and feel proud of myself, but for now. Goodbye
