I only post once a month because I want people to know I'm still alive (Even though they probs don't care)
And I kind of avoid writing because all of my (Good) one-shots are being bombarded with "OMFG PLZ WRITE MOAR"
Witch I kinda lie about updating because they're one shots and I have literally no inspiration to write more on them

Plus I consider my art SO sucky ;-;

Well I had several breaks because of school but I never considered to leave completely. And I also don't think that this will change in the next time because even if I'm really busy and don't have that much time to draw, I enjoy the feedback that I get on my artwork. c: (even if it's not always that much xD)

There isn't really any reason for me to leave/deactivate my account so I've never really considered it. I feel insecure about my art sometimes but it's nothing I would quit DA over, because even if I stopped drawing, I wouldn't want to leave this place and the wonderful people I know here behind.

Though I'm pretty sure I won't stop drawing anytime soon, I've got so much to achieve still!

I left for a while after deactivating my first account, which was a long time ago... basically I got all kinds of butthurt because someone was uploading my art on Facebook, ended up making a HUGE deal out of it until they took it all down, and then I came back like a month or two later.

And sometimes the drama on this site can get to be a little much, and sometimes I overwork myself to the point where I need to take a hiatus, but I probably won't ever just leave without a really good reason.

And after the whole incident with my mom and chatting on here, I lost a solid 2/3 my audience and that still haunts me on a day-to-day basis. It's selfish to say but sometimes that stresses me out enough to where I'd like to leave or take a break. :/

I'm so sorry to hear that, I was actually quite shocked when you first revealed that had happened D: I hope you'll regain those people some day...

Hopefully I'll be able to work my way back up again. But it sure sucks having to start all over again. :/

Right now this is the easiest way for me to showcase my artwork. That may change in the future. But for right now, this is where my art is at home.

I've thought about leaving. I have a really busy and somewhat stressful personal life, with my family being a foster/adopt family and all. (like we foster (take kids in for a little whitle)
