Good morning, DA.
I suppose if I'm serious about writing, I should start making an effort to actually use this DA profile for more than commenting on and liking waifu trash.
So this is it! My first journal entry. If I'm disciplined about this, I should use this space mostly for announcing streams, publishing my own pieces of fanfic, and publishing queues.
Just to provide a little bit of background: I currently work in digital marketing as a social media specialist, but have been writing as a hobby for most of my life. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Creative Writing and have successfully published 3 stories over the course of my college career. One was a self-published novella that had a 6-month run on Amazon, and the others are short stories published in college magazines.
I really want to start doing this as more than a hobby. It is my dream to one day own a publishing house and to host retreats for young writers who want to improve their craft and accelerate their career. I have a Patreon
page setup to help me reach that goal. Also consider following me on Picarto
to keep an eye on what I'm up to and get some advice on how to succeed in today's market.
I realize this is not a very good journal post, but what can I say? I do fiction, not autobiography haha.
Anyways, here is also my commission info for anybody who is interested in... well... commishing me:
