I have been gone a long time from DA. Many people I had connected with have left DA, and the others have continued to grow and change (as humans are wont to do). As for myself, I am not certain I'm really back, or if I am briefly flirting with it again. The part that I've always appreciated about DA is that I can come and go from it as I need, want, please.
Despite my creative leanings, and the integral part creativity plays in my general well-being, I have been neglectful. And now I am newly reawakened to that fact as my mental health has declined, affecting those around me as well as myself. Even if this return is but a brief foray into the seductive world of this art community, I am feeling a certain amount of dedication to continuing my contributions, at least for a while.
I have one question, perhaps some of you may have suggestions for me. I expect that I shall pick up free-writing again, in a way that I have not previously published here. My question is how does it make most sense to publish these writings? I generally do free-writes with pen on paper, expressing myself through the physical act of writing. This means I could attempt to publish these writings as images, or I could attempt to type them up. The next question is one of location - Where do others feel it would be best to post such writings? My first inclination is to post them as Journals, though this would not allow the option (to my knowledge) of posting an image.
