My last journal was big and whiny and written when I was in bad shape. No excuses, I should have waited until I was feeling better before I posted an "I'm Still Alive" type journal.
To be honest, I'm still sick as a dog and running around caring for my mom, but I'm definitely feeling more positive over the last day or two. So now that that's happened, I need to address a few things.
First, thank you to everyone who responded to my last journal with words of support. It meant a lot to me to see such nice things posted. That helped me feel a lot better about myself. Because of those responses, I'm going to try to do some good stuff for all of you as a treat, including posting some new art and stories on my Inkbunny and SoFurry pages (sorry, Furaffinity folks, until the cub-ban is revoked, I cannot and will not post there)...
In addition, I'm going to start doing something that I stopped doing months ago. I'm truly ashamed about not doing this any more. I'm going to begin to personally respond to every watch and fave I get again. I stopped doing this in a bout of depression and a REALLY busy semester a while back, and it's nagged my conscience for months now. I'm going to start responding once more, so I can let my fans know how much I appreciate them.
My biggest fear is turning into this big selfish jackhole I know of on FA who despises me and all his fans, withholds his art on a whim, demands people unwatch him if they watch artists he disagrees with... I'll never name names, but many of you will probably know who I'm talking about. I've made a personal commitment to be the opposite of him. I will strive to be polite, friendly, and courteous with all of you. I will always welcome any fans I get from anywhere. I will strive to write the best stories I can and put them out for all of you to enjoy.
Admittedly, this last depression attack wasn't near as bad as some I've had in recent years... It barely lasted a day. Still, I need to make a change and I'm gonna do my best.
All righty, so now that that's clear, it's time to talk about the fun stuff. In the next few weeks, I'm going to be posting the first chapter of my new story series: Pokemon Battle Kingdom. (Sorry again, FA users, you'll have to go to my other pages to see it. All I can do is advise you to keep complaining to Dragoneer and the mods until they reinstate cub porn.) In addition, I have some new artwork that I'll be posting soon. On top of that, I'm working hard on Digimon Defenders, and I've also got some other stuff in store.
I'll do my best to live up to what I said here today. I hope that all my fans will stick with me, and I'm gonna pay you back in turn!
Rock on, folks! ^_^~<3
