It's been quite a long journey. My dA says the account was made in 2009. That is true, but Kagome and myself didn't really use it much that year since we had dial-up internet. Mostly we were on during school. So really, the account may be five years old, but it's only been managed, by me, for four years. Kagome and I parted ways about two years ago. Call it creative differences if you'd like.

I've seen lots of deviants come and go, and I'm glad that my statistics says I have 170 watchers, though I know maybe three of them actually bother to look at what I post. and even then, I have to remind one to look, ask the other in private their thoughts, or link them to something I want an opinion on. It's difficult to write something you'd like published one day when you're the only one who will edit it. But, that's another thing. Since my work is on dA, I may never be published. So there's a dilemma. To remove my chapters here or leave them? They get some sort of comment here, even if it is a miniscule pat to my back more often than not, but there are instances where I get helpful feedback. After submitting, sometimes, to over a hundred and some groups... I'm in 220 right now.
I think I'll leave them. There's a fear if I remove them, then no one but me will ever see them again. I'm hardly a popular writer, but at least someone sometimes reads my work and can be amused by it.

I've joined a few more writing sites. You can find me on fictionpress by typing in Wicked Toys. I'd link to the page, but I don't know how. I'm also on scribophile now, but you need an account to see stuff there.

I'd always hoped to publish my stories. Not for the money or fame, though those wouldn't be unappreciated, but because I always wanted to share my writing and characters. This journal isn't supposed to be depressing, though it does sound it, it's meant to be reflective. Maybe the way my work is received here is what would happen if I ever did get published? I don't even bother bringing my fictionpress into this. I have over a hundred and some pieces on that and two comments. It's really depressing and aggravating. I've always tried hard with my work. Maybe I try too hard? Maybe.

Anyways, I'll draw this to a close in a bit. I don't know if I'll leave my chapters up or just post one shots again. If I take them down, they may die. I don't know.
