I use this profile to post my series and one-shots. For other writings and side projects I'm working on, visit my AO3 page (link below) for the complete collection!

I like to meander about the site and give llamas to random people, because I'm needlessly wonderful like that.

Not even gonna bother describing myself because I'm talkative as all hell and never know what to say because I'll probably say too much. So if you wanna get to know me, talk to me! I guarantee you'll learn a lot...seeing as I won't shut up XD

I figured out why I'm losing my drive to write.  It's not creativity; I still scribble down ideas that I get on the regular.  No, it's not me.  It's you.  That was meant to sound cheesy but not harsh so let me elaborate.  One thing I love about dA is the interaction.  How you can meet awesome people and help build each other up as writers, or be a huge fan of someone's work and support them as best you can.  And I feel like I'm lacking in the latter.  To be clear, this isn't me saying 'I'm not getting enough favorites or comments so I don't wanna write!'.  No, nothing like that.  But...I have no idea if people like why I'm writing anymore.  A fave is nice but that's not a lot of motivation, especially when you don't get many.  I used to get a few comments here and there and I enjoyed chatting with the people who were reading my stuff.  Be it 'Wow, great chapter!  I really liked the part where...' or 'lol that was fun to read', that really helped and made it fun to keep going.  Now I honestly can't tell if anyone's even reading anymore...so I kinda feel like there's not much of a point, ya know?

Again, I'm not begging for favorites or comments.  But have I done something that started turning off my readers?  Something with my writing style, or the stories themselves?  If I'm not writing enjoyable stuff then I need to know or I can't grow as a writer.  And if no one even takes the time to answer those questions, it's a double whammy of 'why bother?'.  So...that's where I'm at right now.

Did I fuck something up?
