I've been putting off making this journal for a long time now, but I've decided that it's time for me to retire this account. I just...feel that posting poetry here is not something that I am invested in anymore, and that I can grow further in other places.
This is a decision that I've been dragging out for...three or so years now, but I've been reluctant to because of the gratitude I have toward this community and the people here, and also because of the time and effort and energy I have poured into this account. I've been here for six years now (six years!) and this place has seen me through my fledgling writing and drawing days to the much improved version of myself I am today. I still have a long way to go and I hope that I will always have room to grow more, but my years on deviantART are some I hold very close to my heart.
I want to thank everybody who has connected with me and my writing and art over the years, and has made it such a great experience for me. I will never stop being grateful for your support! Without you all, I wouldn't have stayed so long, and I certainly wouldn't be where I am now.
I will, of course, continue to write and draw! I may post one final work in the coming weeks, but I'll see how it goes. Links to my other social media remain on my profile, if you wish to keep up with what I'm up to. And again, thank you for being with me all these years ☆☆☆
