Long time no see...and the contest announced

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 3, 2011, 7:05 PM

Heh, an update after a while...if you're not interested in my life, skip to the green dots and read between those...I'm quite sure that'll interest you :) Or run even more down and check some cool features :)

Truth to be told, I'm off the dA more than I would like to be. In last two or so years, many things changed in my life and while some of them brought good things, some were very bad. All in all, neither helped me being active here. And why do I value being active here so much?
Well there's friends and there's watchers to consider and of course, I like being here, plain as that. Do you need any other reason?
Anyway, in the last couple of months, I was extra slow, even to my own criteria. There's so many works done and not shown yet that it makes me totally annoyed even thinking of it :roll: There's also few things I wanted done and they haven't been, due to my lack of time spent here.
Well, it's hard to change RL and what it brings and however much I work on my health, it's hard dealing with it too. I'm definitely coping, do doubt about it, but beside everything else, doing a necessarily and not at all pleasant water fast for two weeks on every three months...let's just say it isn't fun.  
It's not too bad, either...in last years, I got used to it, but it takes me time to recover every time and everything suffers, including dA. Why am I telling you all this?
Well, my friends mostly know what's going on and don't ask many questions when I suddenly stop writing or submitting for a while. But some of the people who claim to like my work (like the girl signed "Ada" in the notes I recently got), sometimes get worried and inquisitive.
Just to say, I appreciate this concern, I really do. But since it is really hard for me to answer notes and everything else, I'm writing this journal instead. Once again, thank you for your concern, all of you who asked, I truly appreciate it :)
Now, for the rest of the journal, much more exciting news: new contest guys :D Be ready!
:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: :bulletgreen:
I planned this contest to run a while ago...the whole idea was ending it by Christmas time, so the winners could get their prizes for Christmas. Alas, that wasn't possible due things I wrote above, but the contest is still planned. In a week or so from now (and maybe sooner, but this is a safe plan), you'll get all the details. For now, little sneak peak, 'ey?
It will be open for all media, including literature works and there will be three prizes, which I'll show you in next journal :P All prizes are actual, physical objects, so if you enter, be prepare to share your address with me and for the sake of sanity, be sure to ask your parents/guardians (if you have them and need their permission aka if you're minor) about participating and sharing the address. This because the last time we had some problems of the type, luckily solved with relative ease.
Hmm, what else? Yeah, there will be three categories: one for painted, drawn and such works (traditional or digital), one for actual physical art (like sculptures and artisan crafts) and one for lit. works. Don't like it? Go and complain to someone who can cheer you up when you're down, as this ain't gonna change. Jk, but it had to be this way, cause in earlier years we had pretty colorful mess and there's different criteria for these types of art and I want this to be fair. I wish I could provide more prizes, so every category could have winners and runner ups, but as I'm just a poor artist as most of you who are reading this are...you get the picture. However, there will be some features and stamps for seconds and thirds.
:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: :bulletgreen:
And, wow, this is a long one, isn't it? Well, that's that for now...some usual grey everyday and some magic to make it more colorful. For the end, some great features by artists I like here.
See you soon ^^
