Art & Photography
I have been juggling so many projects and have yet to finish many of them... Story of my life! So much DBZ fan-art, horse portraits, and other random themes and whatnot... My mind has been scattered lately due to personal matters and changes in my life, I haven't quite gotten far on all my New Years Resolutions; one has only been abandoned, but that was because the resolution had something to do with someone else, and they pretty much made it a lost cause.
Anyhoo, I've been contemplating this for a long while and have decided I will open up $$ commissions, just not right this moment; I still have to set up my Paypal account and get everything in order as to what rates I'm going to go at, what I'm going to offer, etc. Many people have been telling me I should make money off my artwork, but I've belittled myself and my abilities, asking myself why people would want to buy artwork by me, but as part of my New Years resolutions, I've been working to be more at peace and have more confidence in myself, to empower myself and not think so little of my abilities and talents, no matter how inexperienced I may be. So, I'm going to make more of an effort to get myself out there, to take advantage of the opportunities to grow.
Not to mention, I need the money... It isn't to any emergency, but my household has been in need of a second income for a long while, and in the wait to find/get a job, I figure I should open commissions. I am also an online distributor for a weight-loss product called Skinny Fiber, but I am not very popular on Facebook or anywhere on the web and my orders are so far and few in between at the moment, my business is taking a little while to get off the ground, so I only ever get $25-$75 paychecks once every few months... Which can only go so far! If you or someone you know is trying to lose weight, please check out Skinny Fiber. I've been taking the product myself and have lost 30 pounds and over 30 inches, and I feel amazing--it's a part of my new-found confidence and frame of mind! It really works, and the best thing--it's all-natural! There's a new 90 Day money back guarantee, as well, but I don't know how long it will last, so take advantage of it now; there's a less than 1% return rate, so you have NOTHING to lose except for pounds and inches!
So anyways, if you like my artwork and you want me to make you something, keep an eye out for when I open commissions and jump on it!
Here is a small sample of the things I am willing to/will draw:

Also, I've cleaned out my gallery, particularly my photography gallery. Something I am also pursuing is photography, which is easier for me to do with my (newer) camera I got last year. Not a professional camera by any means, but much better than the pocket camera I had before. Going through my photos, it is amazing what I considered "good" in photography... I guess that shows I am growing and learning something about photography, eh? I contemplated opening another dA account for my photography, under J.M.A. Photography, but I don't quite feel as though my portfolio has grown enough to have its own dA account... So for now, it will just be in its folder here. Plus I just didn't think I wanted to bother with handling 2 dA accounts just yet xD
I am very excited; this summer, I am going to go to my dear friend's new home and take maternity photos of her and her horse; she isn't paying me anything, but she is going to help me get clients in exchange... She was the one who encouraged me to pursue equine photography as a profession, and giving that she's had plenty of experience with professional-level photographers...I realized I better take that as a genuine remark and not something a friend was just saying out of support. So that's just what I'm going to do! To have her say she would be "honored" to have maternity photos done by me...that was awesome to hear. I can't wait to see her and her Charlie-horse again, not to mention sort of "meet" her unborn son Maverick before he arrives this fall ^_^
I am hoping my mother and I will be able to get a new car before the end of this year... Our old truck is falling apart, and as much as we want to keep it (it belonged to my late uncle, rest in peace), it just isn't practical... We get barely 5 miles to the gallon, it's always breaking down and having something go wrong even after we fix a previous problem, and we can never go anywhere beyond in town because we never know if it's going to break down on us or not... Once we get a new car, not only will it be easier for me to get a job, but I will be able to go more places for more photo opportunities and clients and whatnot. I'm crossing my fingers it works out, and soon!!!
Fanfiction and Other Writing
I HATE WRITER'S BLOCK. I'll say that right now
I've slowly been working on my DragonBall Z fanfictions, but I've primarily been working on piecing together my original novel trilogy, Whisperer, and its prequel, Defiant. I've been getting on to doing some serious research about publication and ways I can improve as a writer; I want to finish Book I of Whisperer and get it published in the next couple of years. It sort of ties in with my whole redirecting of my thought process and how I view myself... I've always thought I was too inexperienced of a writer, that there was too much I didn't know and no one would want to publish me and once someone did, my book would be torn apart by critics and readers alike for being so flaw-ridden... But in doing research in what makes a good novel, good characters, and all that jazz...I wound up surprising myself in just how much I already know, and how much I am succeeding in doing, even at a decent level.
Pretty much, I have really started believing in myself and am driving forward. Part of what helps me do that, other than self-empowerment, is reading reviews readers leave me on my DBZ fanfics on FF.net and my original stories on FictionPress... It's only a small handful in comparison to most, I'm sure, but it's a handful I immensely appreciate and go back to whenever I'm feeling down or stuck in a block... Thank you to my readers, thank you for reading, thank you for waiting for updates no matter how long the story may go without, and thank you for reviewing
