A Clarification
"Fictitious Syns"
Fictitious Syns: Any of several amalgams of facts & fiction that may be seen as synonymous with the truth of things.
Each of us has a perception of what the "real" world is. And it is definitely not some so-called reality show on MTV. That's a rant for another day.
What we consider to be true life and what we believe to be true to life can be found in the nexus between fact and fiction. Writers continue to build upon a legacy of well crafted fantasies that attempt to get at the truth of life. Those that succeed in telling that "truth" are remembered fondly. Some are revered as literary masters for their ability to decipher the codex of our common humanity. My aspirations are nowhere that lofty.
My need to write about some of the past events that continue to shape the course of my life can best serve me as a reminder that things really do get better. I am however, still holding out for things to get way better than better.
The fictionalized accounts found here contain

An Attempt At Wit and Syn
An Attempt At Wit & Syn
"Fictitious Syns" is the name of a storytelling game some friends and I came up with in college. It's very likely not all that original.
We would each tell a personally significant story from our past that had to contain seven things that were true and three things that could be true or not. We could not add filler elements or create fictional "red herrings". It was the task of the listeners to ferret out the fiction (if there was any) from the facts.
About half of the stories were very funny; some were emotionally charged revelations, a few were downright tragic and still haunt me today. Those stories were part of what made us a "family" back then. We've all since gone are separate ways as people do, as many "college families" do. I miss the stories and the people that told them. Those fictitious syns are beginning to pour out of my head and into this DA gallery. And it feels good.

before I commit to something in earnest
A few notes before I commit to something in earnest
I want to be a better storyteller. Good mechanics are a given. They tell me there are rules I can forsake in the interests of credible fiction, and there are rules that cannot be broken if I want to write great fiction.  I'm still trying to figure out how to post a literature entry on DA.
For now, any sentence that doesn't begin with "It was a dark and stormy night" or ends with "and they lived happily every after" will be considered an accomplishment of some merit.
Sifting through well worn tropes, I search for something that was missed by the thousands of other would be writers. All I come up with are sentence fragments, woven into the fabric of threadbare clichés.
It's disheartening to concede that this may be the best I can do after a good night's sleep.
Trying to pander to readers with the usual gratuities is an embarrassment to me and anyone who would take an interest in what I have to say. Sex and violence cannot

For well over two years, life has been particularly insistent that I pay attention to myself and my journey. It happens to all of us from time to time. What doesn't have to happen is that any of us feels the need to apologize to “social media” for our absence.

I sometimes feel compelled to “privately” share bits of what I've been experiencing with a few individuals. But very few (if any) details will be posted here or anywhere else.

We members of DA who are genuinely here to learn are grow creatively, can sometimes mistake an interest in what we do with our talents for tangible support of who we are as individuals. It's an easy trap to fall into. And it's rife with predators.

No one deserves to become fodder for the entertainment of those who sift the silt of social media, searching for missives of tragedy. These “trolls” thrive on the challenges and the setbacks of others. The willingness of some to over share has become emotional porn to those who choose to exploit the marginalized, the vulnerable.

Well, I'm not going to feed the predatory. It only encourages them.

What I will do is continue to acknowledge my fellow creative souls, continue to spread some DA Love whenever and wherever the inspiration strikes. And I will always come from a place of best intentions first, when giving or receiving constructive critiques.

People almost invariably leave DA because of one form of abuse or another. People also choose to stay with (or return to) DA because of the connections they've made. It's those connections that inspire me to recognize my right to creative expression, to develop my gifts without ridicule.

Deviant Art is always meant to be a safe space for all of us to just be. And as long as we stand together and “show up” for one another, it will be just that.

So yes, I'm back. I've missed being active long enough. It's time to put my artist's muscle memory to the test. Oh, rest assured, I'll be spreading plenty of DA Love here and there as well.

And I won't apologize for that either. :dalove:
