Thanks to everyone who sent me music. That's still ongoing, so feel free to participate!
Every time I post writing on here I think that maybe I should create an account for writing only. Tentacled women and poems about feelings aren't exactly likely to attract a crossover audience. However, I hold back every time.
The fact that it would mean I would have to do the "work" of switching accounts, and the fact that I would hate to push "Nemonus" aside or forget about it in favor of another account, was what stopped me today. However, my main reason is something I talked to ~Jspx
about a couple days ago. It went as follows:
I value the "humanness" that comes with all parts of one's personality being lumped into one's online persona at once. There's something a little cold, to me, about writers who have nothing but fantastic poetry and Meaningful Quotes on their pages. I start to wonder if those writers have ever done anything that doesn't fit the pretty little mold they've made, and I don't want to ever come off as that cold, perfect thing. It makes me feel too fallible to see it. I guess I want the 'lesson' of my page to be that one person can be schlocky one moment and grand the next, and that the two things can coexist and stir into one thing that is pleasant in both high-culture (poetry, usually) and low-culture (fanart, usually) ways.
That's related to the reasons why I keep my old art up here, of which there are many - a.) it's good to see how I've progressed, b.) some people might like it, and c.) I've gone through a couple laptops/living spaces and might not even have the original copy any more.
Please tell me if you're vastly opposed
to me posting poems on here, and maybe I'll make another account. But otherwise, I think it's all going to stay under one roof.
