Long, long ago, in a galaxy far away, there was a weeby little dA user called ErraticFerret
. . .
Basically I disappeared for over a year and voila, I'm back with a new account that will hopefully redeem me. I definitely won't be as active as I used to be on my old account due to senior year, and life in general, but it'll be better than a year long hiatus that came out of the blue. I don't expect to get back to where I was back then, but I'm hoping that I can rebuild myself over time so that I can most of all just be happy with the direction I'm taking. No more forcing myself to write, no more not writing for my preferred fandoms just because a majority of my account followed another one, and most of all trying to put myself out there rather than hiding away like the depressed little hermit I have been.
I thought I'd regret taking a break from DeviantArt, but if I'm being completely honest it was probably the best thing I could have done for my mental health, even if that hasn't necessarily improved. I was so low that writing was becoming a chore rather than my passion, and if I'd kept it up I don't think I ever could have come back to it. Now, I know for a fact my writing has regressed a bit since I haven't been practicing, but I'm working on it, so hopefully I can get myself back to an acceptable level; doing fandom role-plays among friends has really been helpful, especially the ones where my replies have to be almost two thousand words!
I don't want to ramble too much, but yeah, basically I'm back and potato-like as ever, so I hope you all don't mind putting up with me again
