I've realized that I've been holding myself back because I didn't think my works were that great or where I needed them to be. I was waiting until my story skills and drawing skills were "perfect". It had a negative more of a negative effect. How can I grow if I don't let my feet get wet with experience. Jumping into the writing contest held by
, I realized how to have fun with my writing again. I do think there is a time for training and building certain skills (and the warrior principle says that training is an ongoing, heart strong process), but I shouldn't shut myself away from sharing what I can do now. I may learn more than what I might've keeping things to myself. Even the things I don't share and the frustrations of not being as great as I want to be are stepping stones. I'm not going to just post everything XD. But I'm going to make an effort to really submit works worth submitting, and growing from there. It's fine to have goals and checkpoints of where I want to be with my art and writing for a story or for a manga, but I shouldn't hold myself back any longer. Perfection will continue to be strived for in hope of reaching levels worthy and beyond my abilities of previous works. Now, it's time for anatomy and manga training XD.
