    Talking About My Issues

    I honestly do try to not talk about my personal issues much here, because what little I have actually talked about here has been seen as pandering, or attention seeking. I've realized that if I don't talk about my issues here, people won't really get why I am the way I am, and the same hate will continue whether I want it or not. So, here we go, time to talk about my issues.

    My experiences with plurality

    Plurality is a phenomena where multiple personalities exist separately in a single mind. This can occur in multiple ways, whether through a tulpa, or split personalities. I've had my fair share of experiences with plurality, and would like to share them now. Be aware that this blog post will touch on some very heavy subjects which not everyone will be able to take. If you are sensitive to

    I'm so happy to see you all again!

    Okay, aside from internal crises about whether or not I should delete stories, I have a lot to talk about since I was last active on the site. there's so much to tell you guys that I'm having trouble even starting! Oh my goodness, where should I start?

    Considering deleting Aria

    I realize how many people who enjoy my writing are here because of "Aria" in specific, but there's honestly so much drama surrounding it, and I don't know if I should keep it up or not. I'm not going to take it down at least until I'm more well into writing "In My Head," but I just feel like because of the better story, "Aria" doesn't really have a place anymore. It's not that I don't want people

    In My Head: Chapter 3

    I don't know what the next chapter of In My Head is going to be like. What I was previously trying to do with it wasn't working. It seemed more like simple message fiction, which lately, I very much don't enjoy writing, as it doesn't make people enjoy reading it. I may take a break before retrying on it, I may not. I haven't really decided yet. But, do look forward to marginally more activity

It does actually bother me · 4:50am Aug 29th, 2017

Okay, I try to play it off like I don't really care that I get hate, but that's really not how it is. The hate I get for my creations, whether it's something I've written, something I've drawn, something I've 3D modeled, one of my game projects, or any number of things, really brings me down. My family has noticed when I get hate on things, not because they see where I've gotten the hate, but by my overall demeanor. They've told me that I'll range from "dark and gloomy" to "completely emotionless" and the fact that they have to see that kills me.

I don't tell people "if you don't like my stories, don't read them" because I'm a self-entitled prick who just doesn't accept that other people have different tastes, I say it because I want them to feel engaged and fulfilled by their time spent reading my stuff, and if they're not enjoying it, I'm honestly hurt by the fact that I didn't please. I want to make good stories, and I want to make stories that people appreciate, but people's aversion to my work makes me reluctant to do any more. Some of you have probably noticed that I've gotten pretty scarce on this site recently. That's for this exact reason. I don't feel wanted, and I don't feel welcome. There are a few people I do enjoy on this site, but it's not an overall welcoming community.

I don't know if I want to stay here. I'll continue my current projects, but unless I start to get some people actually enjoying my efforts, I might just go to reading other stories and commenting. I feel drained by the negative feedback this site has given me and I don't know what else I can do to help me make people happy.

If I hated on you I am sorry.

I loved Aria and want more.

Please don't leave. A friend only just showed me your stuff, and from the negative comments alone I can see that it will be worthwhile reading (yes, I wrote that correctly). :raritywink:

There are arsehats, there are trolls, and unfortunately the world has a good measure of both. But not everyone is one. I am yet to read your story (In My Head is the one I was pointed towards), but I plan to at my earliest convenience.

Write for the people who love your work. Write for those who will read it and find something new to understand. Write it for yourself. But please, don't not write it because of idiots.

P.S. I may have sent some readers your way with a blog post. :twilightsmile:
