I have started something new. I hope to make something out of it, but I will have to be patient if I want it to work. I haven’t been practicing, but I plan on getting back into this hobby, tomorrow. I will be using my talent to bring you a lot more sights to see, also hopefully encourage others to do what they feel they are being called to do.

I have talked to you guys about this hobby before. The hobby is special effects. I brought this to the surface around Halloween, but now I want to work more with it. I was going to bring you guys a new picture tonight, but I have little to no energy, which means that I would be rushing the project. That is something that I don’t want to do. This is when I decided to put it off until tomorrow. Tomorrow, I will come home from work and will get the materials ready.

If you don’t know what I am talking about. I used liquid latex to create a burn before, I have used scar wax to create a slit wrist. Now, after months of being M.I.A, I want to come back and give you guys my all. That is why I have decided to use liquid latex to create something really awesome. It will take a hour or two, but if it comes out like I thought it would, then this will be the best effect that I have made!

Also, I want to finish up the Bart series. I know that Bart is a reindeer, but that doesn’t mean that he needs to be kept in Christmas. He will be making a huge return, but it might not be for the best. He might have rips, tears, blood or more. I think you guys will love how I end that series, as well as I hope that you guys like the next chapter. This wont be the end, I can tell you that, but it will be worth the watch.

So get ready, get set, lets roll! Tomorrow, I get to come back to this full time. I know that I have been gone for a long time, but I want you to know that I wont be leaving, again. We have a lot of ground to cover. Lets do this!!!

I am quitting blogging due to: Views and Rejection!

After two months of blogging, I probably have received only 200 views/clicks to my blog. Should I quit? Or should I take it like a man and go on with more post? Should I post more? Or should I take time away from this activity? Is Rejection enough to make me quit?

First, Let me talk to you guys about why I blog. There are three reasons that I blog; I have advice people need to see, A great hobby, and It frees my mind.

Everyone has something to say, even if it doesn’t reach out to everyone, it will reach a few people that need to see it. It’s better to help one person, even if a thousand don’t like the post. As long as you help a few people, your blog is worth keeping!

A great hobby is needed in this world. I was lost when I was in writer’s block- it was a depression I couldn’t get over. But when I got over the disease, I felt alive again. I tried everything from shooting hoops to shooting my brother-in-law with a BB gun (Okay! That was fun). Writing is my passion and a great hobby to have!

It frees my mind from the world that I am tortured to live in. It is good to get away from the continuous stress that I am under. It is good to create a character that can do anything he puts his mind to, even if it is dying and coming back from the dead to devour his enemies!

Do views really matter?

Do they truly matter? If Michael Jordan took to heart what his High School coach said, as bloggers take their views, he would have giving up, and we would have never seen the best basketball player in the world win six championships! It is important to remember this: People can’t hold you down! Yes Michael Jordan had the right to give up, he was rejected. But he didn’t, and you saw where that got him, right?

Why should I continue though?

Continue for yourself! As I just said, People can’t hold you down. They are just a number at the end of the day. If you like to write, and you think you are good. Continue to stroke that pen on that paper! If you give up that easily, you were in it for the fame not for the love!

Why am I getting rejected?

You get rejected because the person can’t relate to your beautiful work, there are times where you might need to work on something; Grammar, Wordiness, fact-checking, revision. Most of the time, you went to the wrong person with your work. Remember every artist gets rejected! It is a part of life. You have to take it as constructive criticism and work on what they said they didn’t like. Don’t dwell on what they said though, change your direction and look for someone else to delight with your work.

What should I do after rejection?

I recently got a lot of constructive criticism, I mourned at first, threatened to quit, posted a sad tweet on twitter, then talked to my fiancé. She told me this: “It is constructive criticism, if you need a break, take a break but don’t quit.” she was right; I wasn’t in a place to quit. The Writer wanted me to correct crucial things that affected his plot. How could I argue with that? I weakened his work to make mine better!

I fixed it, but I didn’t send him the final draft. I waited for him to contact me, which took about a day and a half. In that time, I coped and convinced myself that rejection is a part of life. I accepted the fact that he might not use my work.

You should do this; correct your work and send it to the back-burner, until the designated person asks for it again. Don’t force your work on anyone, that’s a way to get the second and last rejection. As you need time, they do to! Don’t re-send unless they ask for it!

Final thoughts?

My final thoughts for all the writers out there that have been dealing with this pain, is this; Don’t give up. Rejection is a sad part of anyone’s life. You will get rejected in everything that you do; never believe you’re not good enough. Pick up that pen and write again. If you need to take a break than do that, but don’t you dare give up!

I hope that every single one of you guys take this advice as you lie on your bed ready to give up.

Thank you-depression101
