So. I first joined devinanART in April of 2011. That would have been my junior year of High School. Up until I joined, I thought that my writing was the most amazing thing to ever happen to the world (don't we all?) but I was too nervous to post it. I started posting my mediocre drawings instead. It wasn't until I saw a feature done by LadyLincoln
that I decided to start posting my writing for feedback. Needless to say, my writing back then sucked, and I didn't get any feedback what-so-ever.
Then I learned I needed to give back to the community to get stuff from the community. I decided to start an article called Let's Talk Writing
. It's probably one of the best things that I've ever done here. I've been able to meet so many cool people and learn about how they write.
I started to post better writing and get better feedback. Interacting with my very first friends on here was amazing. feliciaruiyi
was the first person on here that I actually talked to. I met Zingaresa
when I did my first FFM back in 2012, and it was such a fun experience. I learned a lot about writing flash fiction, which I had never heard of before then. I definitely grew as a writer during that time.
I started to become a bigger part of the Literature community, and I was super excited to be interacting with the people that I had looked up to, including LadyLincoln
. I applied to be a Literature Volunteer every time the opportunity arose, and I think it was after the second or third time when Nichrysalis
invited me to be a backroom person at CRLiterature
The experiences I've had while being a part of CRLiterature
have been some of the best experiences here on dA. I've met new people, like Beccalicious
, and neurotype
, and I was able to get to know IrrevocableFate
, and PinkyMcCoversong
better. I've been a part of some really awesome projects, namely The CRLiterature
Book Club, which is the brainchild of PinkyMcCoversong
So that's the summation of my time here on dA! It's been such a roller-coaster, but I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. //sappy
