Hello, everyone! Goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it?
Gaah, life has just flown by these last few months! I'm now a high school junior, whoo! (Well, technically I still have a few more weeks of summer as a sophomore, but still) I got a job at a jewelry store in my neighborhood, and so far so good. I like it, the people there are really nice and loving. I also used to love jewelry and gems when I was a kid, so this is like, working heaven for me at the moment.
So, er, as for like, my artistic life... haha. I always say I'm going to draw something and then never get to it. Sort of like how I say I'm going to practice my instrument... But ANYWAYS.
I submit a short story to a contest on this writing website I'm a member of, thoughtsinc.net. Right now, all the members are voting, but the poll is hidden so I'll know what the results are in another week or so. I haven't been into writing too much lately. I get ideas and I try them out, but they don't seem to stick. That's mostly for fanfiction that I've attempted at starting. At the same time, all the original ideas I get don't stick either, so I mean, what're you gonna do? The story I submit to the ThoughtsInc I might end up submitting to my high school's literary magazine when junior year starts. I still have to do some editing and revising.
But anywho, maybe I'll just force myself to draw something. Anything. Even if it's like a freaking tree branch or something. (Actually no, I hate drawing trees.) Or perhaps some of you might have suggestions? Like, what would you suggest to a new artist, someone just starting out?
I mean, I WANT to practice my art because I just really love it. There are just so many talented people out there, every time I'm on dA I'm always amazed and mind-blown at the things people can create.
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
