I'm back from vacation! Well, actually, I've been back for a while now...
But I've been 'busy' catching up with friends, moving, getting a new cellphone, attending a Ren Faire, staying in a cabin near a national park, going to Rainfurrest 2013, and writing.
In fact, I was an honorable mention in the writing competition at Rainfurrest this year. \^o^/ Perhaps next year I'll be in the top three... But I doubt if you'll get a chance to read that piece on dA.
You see, I've been looking into getting published, as that is a goal of mine, and have been learning that many publishers like to have an exclusive right to publish the work you submit to them. If the work is on the internet then you can't grant them that exclusive right. And even if you take a work off the internet, the publishers might decide that you are unable to offer them exclusivity because of the time that it spent on the internet. So rather than post a bunch of my works up and then discover I've just made them unpublishable, I am currently not uploading any of my written works as soon as I've written them.
Now the character sketches I started will all be uploaded as soon as I get back to them (they got bumped down the priority list). And I will probably create a teaser of each of the three pieces that I have been working on most recently. By teaser I mean a small excerpt that serves as a preview or, I suppose, advert of the rest of the piece. The trick then becomes getting the pieces published so that you can read them in their entirety...
My pictures shouldn't pose any issues, especially since I can sell them as prints on dA if I so chose; I just have to set aside some time to go through the hundreds of pictures, thousands of pictures, millions and billions and trillions of pictures! (So the last three are hyperbole, but I do have probably close to 10k pictures.)
Now to get back to writing!
Blessings and peace!
