Hey, so yeah, I've been pretty bad on art lately. Which, I know, this is not the first time I've done that. But I was doing at least sketches on a weekly basis and then I kinda stopped, and started having like one piece a month.
I wasn't just being lazy, though. Really, I promise! See, I was writing.
I'd never really put a lot of thought into writing in the fandom before (I always thought of it as my real world focus while I wasn't doing animal people stuff) but a friend who does write in the fandom talked me into giving a it a try and pointed me at a few calls for short stories. I've spent the last few months writing for those and just sent the last of them off last night.
I won't know what's getting accepted for a while but I will definitely point you at them when I know. Sales won't help me directly (they pay a flat rate for the stories) but my main desire is just that some people read them and love them! I put a TON of work into the three I submitted and I feel really strongly about them.
Going forward I plan to start working on some novels to submit for publication in the fandom, too. To begin with I plan to take some of those old comics and games and things I wrote for where the projects invariably ended up falling apart and going nowhere and turn them into novels instead. I put way too much work into them all to just stop now!
So now I'll be getting back to the art. I have a few things I'll be getting started on really soon here that I hope you'll all enjoy! I've noticed my overall views on images have been dropping lately (even though my watches have been going up) and I'm not sure why... but I hope I can draw you guys back in.
I love this fandom and I hope it'll love me back.
