Thank you for submitting this to #LITplease for critique. I am very sorry you had to wait so long for the feedback! Rest assured we are...

Hello all my faithful watchers,

You may or may not have noticed that I've been quiet for quite a while. I pulled away from dA significantly, partially because I'm busy in real life, and partly because I don't feel quite at home here anymore. There isn't one thing I can put my finger on that makes me feel this way; it seems to be more of a series of things that separately are insignificant, but added up mean a lot. I was finally able to make a trip to Los Angeles this year, and even with three months of advanced warning, a visit to HQ didn't happen for various reasons (no one person's fault in particular). I think that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I'm not mad, and I still love dA, but I really need to take a step back and re-evaluate my priorities. I've poured thousands, even tens of thousands of hours into the lit community here, and all that time took away from other important things in my life: my family, school, and my own writing career.

I have handed over control of LITplease to the beautiful, talented and dedicated Sottomissione-di-Amo. LiliWrites has agreed to take the Lit Community Fundraiser points from me and distribute them to the community in an equitable fashion fitting for the fundraiser's original purpose. I took down a large part of my gallery, though there are still forty or so deviations there for your enjoyment (for now).

I don't know when I'll be back, if I'll be back. I'm going to wait and see how I feel in a few months or years. Thank you to everyone who has watched me, read me, critiqued me, worked for me and otherwise supported me during the past seven years, first as PunknEra and then as ATrue. You all have and will continue to mean very much to me.

Even now, I'm feeling a little choked up. I'm glad I'm writing this and not saying it.
