Hello, everyone. I have been a member of DeviantArt for three years now. It doesn't seem so long compared to my seven years on fanfiction. Anyway, I'm here to make three announcements.
1. I'm not going to be doing the song of the week anymore. I feel like I keep repeating myself every week with my reasons for liking a particular song. Also, sometimes it seems that there are too many songs I want to talk about that week. Then on other weeks I'm grasping for straws with finding something, and I might pick a filler song which is not really fair to the song itself. Also it's kind of time consuming.
2. I have decided not to continue my Organization Chibis comic strip. I feel the quality is poor, so I put them in storage until a later time if I get around to improving them.
One idea was to perhaps transfer it into written form, but I feel it would lose its charm if that happened. Besides I have lost all interest in writing.
3. That brings me to the third announcement, and this one is more bittersweet. I've already made this announcement on Fanfiction, but I'll make it here too. I have lost all inspiration and interest for art; at first I thought it was only writing, but lately I find myself not wanting to draw or paint either. I feel disconnected from my work, so I think it's best that I take a very long break. When I say long, that may mean a few months, perhaps years, or permanently. I had hoped this creative block that I've been experiencing for several months now would have ended, but sadly it hasn't.
I've already removed close to fifty deviations today alone (I didn't think them good enough to stay). Over the remainder of the night, and for the next few days I expect half of my deviations to be gone.
Being a part of a fandom and an art community was fun, but I think it's time to call it quits. I feel there are bigger and better things ahead that don't include art. Being a member on this site will continue to waste my time (I honestly feel I have spent way too much time here that could be used doing something more productive).
I feel it is only fair to tell all of my watchers and friends that I plan on leaving once I finish those last two comics. This isn't out of the blue, I've been feeling this way for months, but now is time for me to stop dawdling and make a decision, and I have. I will keep some of my best arts up, but nothing new will be coming.
I will continue to check in to offer support to my friends, but I won't post anymore art of my own. Therefore I won't be offended if you choose to remove me from your watch list. Again, if inspiration hits me again, I might return, but as of now I'm certain it won't be for a while.
Goodbye and Good luck to everyone here. I hope all of your dreams come true.
