i've had quite a few people asking me where i've gone and if i've left deviantARt. the thing is, i don't know. most of you in the lit community know that it's hard to make a name for yourself. i just feel like i'm not doing anything productive around here, no matter much or less i do. you see, i used to think i was a bad writer because i had never gotten a DLD or a DD. i've gotten two DLD's in the past year, received some recognition and i still feel like my writing is shit.
and you know what, writing isn't about recognition. but the lit community has pressured me into feeling that way. to put it bluntly, it's all about popularity on here and i don't find that entertaining. i used to come on dA to relax and get my mind off of things but instead this site has just become a big ball of stress for me. i have also been inactive for real-life reasons, but the gist of it is that dA just isn't my cup of tea anymore. i hope that you guys can understand. if i do come back, it will probably be under a new account.
stay awesome, guys ✈
