Well, I been a member of Deviantart for...about six years now....wow, six years. I can remember the first time I came on here. I felt
like a total stranger, and totally out of place. When I saw all the people who could write and draw on here, and realized just how much
their talent exceeded mine, I felt completely outclassed.

But after a while, I realized the vast majority of folks on here weren't to be feared. They were people just like me. Also like me, they
started out small, had to dig their roots in deep, and work like there was no tomorrow to get where they are now. I was welcomed with
open arms in several circles, made some really good friends, had people praise me on the quality of my writing and drawings I made.

Needless to say, it was extremely surprising. To think, that me, a nobody, could actually acquire so much respect in a short period
of time. Life really does have a way of surprising you, don't it?

But yeah, I met some great people on here, and...some not so great people, who will remain nameless. However, I would like to believe
that most of the encounters have been beneficial in the long run. I've improved both my skills when it comes to work AND my social
skills in general. Whenever I felt down, or when the burden of the outside world became too much, I could come talk to the people on
here and they would help me in whatever little way they could.

For those of you who I may've accidentily caused trouble for in the past, you have my apologies. Also, for those of you who've stuck
with me this far, thank you, and thank you again for supporting me in all my work. I hope I can continue to keep you entertained and
be more proactive on this site in the future.

This entry maybe over but I think it's safe to say that my story is only just getting started. Once again, thank you fellow Deviants, and
thank you Deviantart for having such a positive influence on my life.

No, that's fine. I was just curious. It's good to meet a fellow writer too.

Well, I was just curious.   It seems that there are writers who are drawers as well, or one or the other and switched.

I used to be a writer and I wanted to write stories, but I couldn't bring myself to write, especially when I started drawing in 2011.  I feel much more confident in my drawings and I enjoy them more than writing. 

However, I have an obligation to Loyalty, my Touhou fanfic.  I want to complete that, at least, but it isn't a priority to my drawings.   Who knows, maybe I'll get back into writing.

Apologies for any inconveniences.

Sure, that would be great. I'd love to see what you can do. But what made you suddenly ask about my writing and drawing skills.

I haven't gotten around to reading your stories yet, but if I do, perhaps I can draw fanart of your characters?   I'm still in traning, but I'm improving.  Thank you.

Eh, sometimes, although I'm honestly not that good. I'm more a writer and teller of stories than anything else.
