Haven't really written one of these in a while, so just thought I'd keep y's posted
I'll be moving my story series “The trials of a queen's companion” (TOAQC) over to storymash.com Reasons for this are cos it's long-dead, it aint really sitting around doing much, and at least if it's on storymash they like pay or something should you tick all the boxes. Have recantly weighing up between Wattpad, Kindle or storymash, in the end storymash won out because (And I would'nt recommend any of you other dA writers just willy-nilly going along and doing this) Storymash pays. You're pretty much selling your soul to them for page-veiws, and in return they get to do whatever they darn well please with any masterpeices you churn out. But also, it breaths new life into a piece. Storymash lets other writers collaborate and add bits to your story, and who knows where it may turn out. I'm not entirely happy regarding the copyright policy on this though. Wattpad I believe has more secure copyright T's & Cs but, they don't pay. And you're submitting your story into a sea of writhing masses, in the hopes that somone may just read it. Kindle also has a more secure copyright, AND they pay, but TTOAQC is an unfinished piece. It would require dedication set aside every week and month for me to keep on writing new chapters, when I think quite frankly, I'm over it. I'm already meant to be keeping on track with uploading comment to my youtube channel, and if I were to re-ressurect, or even attempt to create another story series, I would really need to know for sure that I'd be able to keep it going.
So yaay for young-people life and struggles! I love art, I love making art, and all the relationships and everything else that accompanies it, but sadly, I have not (yet!) been able to take on cyberspace in my quest to become artistically/financially/awesomely self – sufficant. Deviantart seems to be a dying culture here, and I mourn many of my friends who have decided to leave. For now I myself diegn to leave. I still have many friends here, and will probably only flee when either no kindred spirit remains here, or they start to charge some sort of fee/board/rent (I wonder if there's some sort of arty-website that pays you to let them have adds on your page...?) Perhaps in future I will be able to do more writing, I genuinely hope so, but, alas, writing takes time.
So, to summerise, I'm setting a once-loved story-line free, let the future take it where it will.
I have absolutely no idea what I'm meant to be doing with my life, and I refuse to go to college unless the course in mind can land me in a job pretty much straight after (So no taking on shakespearean studies or a masters degree in toenail-psycho-therapy for me!)
And, before you ask, NO I aint applying at the military! I was genuinely considering this for a while, but reality's hit me and I've realised that I wouldn't really be able to survive a full day there. So much forced-fitness, and people yelling at you, and hafta do this, and hafta do that, and it all seems so STRICT, and, well, MILITANT!
I much rather enjoy and appreciate actually connecting with people, getting out there and helping participate in things, making a difference, plus sleep-ins and not having to worry about how I'm gonna pay all the bills each week. I like my world vaguely borderless and pleasantly with minimal boundaries, with water-color rainbows and kitty-catties and luvv
Anyone know of any careers who let ya do that?
