So I have been thinking... I haven't really gotten much fulfillment out of being on DA. I know I have tried to leave it on numerous occasions but I stay for my friends. 
Only it's not really working. I guess partially because I feel like I have to be into whatever they are into? I don't know. But I guess the tragic thing is that as I post my own OC's and move further into the territory I am moving into with my personal novel (a ten year work in progress) that I've never been totally willing to share it here. Sure, you all have seen Zoe, you've seen excerpts of stories about her, but other than that I've been secretive in sharing that work with others. My most popular OC on this site TO DATE is Miska and she, currently, is a character specifically created for One Wish who has never been featured to have more personality than just a toothy grin and blond hair.

Where as Zoe, a grieving teenager, has a sort of bad temper and has probably grown from being a random rebel to something much more in the ten years I have put into making her work. It's my fault for not sharing it, but what I did share didn't seem to be strong enough back when it was in the infant stages. 

Due to Miska's affiliation with Link, I see why she gets so much attention even though she's flat and definitely not well rounded. But in my adventure to publishing my first novel, I think I just need to move from here and start from scratch elsewhere. No establishing myself as a fanartist. 

Ten years. Seven chapters uploaded to fiction press with two reviews. That probably says: Wow, you must suck.

Maybe I do... but it's a rough draft and a girl has to start somewhere. Right?

Thanks for your constant support! I do realize, again, that it's my fault for not sharing more... but with a constant fear of having my work stolen or something, I didn't want to risk it - especially since this has been such a long ride. 

Farewell, darlings!
