I've been thinking. I know...it's a dangerous thing. But I've been thinking...a lot over the last few months. And I've come to the decision that it's time for me to leave dA. I've held on through March because of my obligations to NaNoPlotMo
, but I know I'm leaving that in more than capable hands now. I do believe I've already overstayed my visit here and it's time to let other gain the spotlight. I won't deactivate my account because I want to leave the resources I've created here, so others can find and use them. And because you never know, I may decide to come back in five years.
Don't get me wrong, in the six short years I've been here, I've absolutely loved it. I was welcomed almost as soon as I arrived and quickly made friends with some of the most awesome people I've ever met in my life. I was even given the privilege of serving the community by being a CV of Literature. The projects, pranks, and shenanigans that I've started, been the brunt of and carried on while here will always bring a smile to my face, and hopefully yours too.
I've loved every moment spent with you and will miss you all dearly. I am going to leave a bit of contact information (my Skype and Twitter accounts), if you're not on either of those and would like a different way of keeping in touch, just drop me a note. I'm going to be milling around my account for a couple more days while I finish buttoning up everything.
I've already wiped out my journals and deviations to include only a few community articles I've done over the years and a couple of guides/tutorials/resources. My literature deviations have been whittled down to what's received a Daily Deviation and a collaboration story. Poll history is gone, same with status updates. I even cleared out my Sta.sh and deleted anything remaining in Storage. I even erased my watch list. If you're gonna do something, you gotta full monty it.
Thank you for all the awesome I will forever associate with this place. For those that didn't bring the awesome, well, it's your sob story and not mine.
