I plan on keeping my journals about art and Stargate-related things and encouraging Wraith art and creating Wraith art. I’m currently working on a realistic painting of Queen Ruby. My projects lately have been taking more time and are more difficult. Offline, I have been seeking more volunteerism, activism, and events where I can connect with compassionate people and learn.
To save time and stress and to prevent dA burnout, I’m cutting back on some things on dA, especially these items which are draining and unproductive:
*Commenting on fandoms I know nothing about, because my comments are more incorrect than supportive and just wastes the time of me and others who have to correct them.
*Contributing to complaints where solutions to problems can’t be generated (or are often not even wanted at all). This includes self put-downs people make of themselves and their own art. Solutions and doing something matters, even if on the micro-volunteer level. Cumulative actions have real impact for us and our planet.
Thanks for your understanding and I hope for a productive and happy 2015 for everyone.
PS - This will probably be my last journal entry. I'm looking to simplify and just add any art as I finish it to my gallery and be more like other group owners who don't get overly involved with things other than to run contests and to maintain the galleries.
