It's been a fun ride, it's been a rough ride.

However... well, I think that it's time to say goodbye to this account.  I used to think I'd stick to this one account for the entirety of my time here, but now I'm not so certain of it.  I've ostensibly got hundreds of people following me, but I never hear from them anymore.  My watch and friends lists are filled with names that I haven't seen or heard from in years.  Some I'd love to see again, and some I'd prefer become blurry memories.  I kind of feel like I'm living in the past, staying as Daitou.  So... this is it.

I've tried reinventing my style a number of times, but now I'm going for a complete do-over.  I'm relearning to draw, shaking out the rust and fixing mistakes and flaws so deeply rooted in my approach that the only cure is a hard reboot.  I may bring back a few characters, but I'm going to try to draw like a different person for a while.  Some things may look familiar, but I'm going in a more lively direction.

If you want to follow me, you five people who're aware that this journal exists, I'm now Daitwo.  If not... well, everything ends sometime, and I guess this is goodbye.

Dan is a first-time novelist who's loved books for a long time, but loved drawing for longer. However, being very slow at drawing and moderately faster at writing, his DeviantART account doesn't get as much love or attention as it should or used to, and he focuses on his writing. His cats keep him company.

I see you having a stirring conversation with you and yourself sir. Such eye opening statements! I can't help but feel jealousy at such stirring dialogue!

I make such good conversation that I confide in myself a lot, I find.

I've been... eh.  I find that I talk to myself more than I do other people, of late.  How have things been on your end?

At times good and at others feeling like I'm doing nothing but floating around. How about yourself, mister?
