Personal Quote: If you follow the herd you end up stepping in shit.
This year I am going to be true to my art, to be proud of what I do and to have a bit of confidence it in. I've worked bloody hard at it so I kind of deserve to give myself some credibility, whether anyone else agrees or not. I absolutely love, LOVE fanfiction and fan art but tried not to indulge in it for the past couple of years because I didn't think it was productive. Now I've reached a point where I just don't care. I love it, I enjoy looking at it, I love reading it and I enjoy having a bash at writing/creating it. It's high time I got over myself and had a bit of fun with it! So, in honour of this new resolve, I made a shiny new id, for a nice clean, fresh start but then I was like, why? I have a perfectly good account here, it just needs some new folders
Basically, this account will now be focusing on my long running obsession with fan fiction, I'll be rehashing/polishing some old stuff and introducing some new. I plan to really enjoy it again this year. Oh and for the record, I do try to follow the official WoW lore as much as I can, but for the sake of story and just what makes sense to me personally, I sometimes deviate. For example, I subscribe to Tolkein's lore about elves to the extent that they live for thousands of years and which is also supported in WoW lore, but silly things like Stormwind being rebuilt in like 10 years when a castle takes centuries to build, kind of throws my stories out ... which threw me out really badly in the past. So now, I just go with the flow, if it fits, I'll use it. If it doesn't, I wont.
Be warned, I can never leave anything I do alone, I'm always going back to add/subtract and until now I've deliberately not looked at my finished work in an effort to try and stop obsessing over it. But really, what's the point of that? You have to love what you do, don't you. I obsess, it's about time I got used to the fact ... so I will say here that I reserve the right to change my work at any given time - hopefully for the better!
