VisionaryDame has started a donation pool!
1,020 / 3,000
This donation pool is for a future contest that I would like to start, a contest that was inspired by another deviant who had the same contest. If anyone is willing to donate points, no matter how big or small, for this cause, please do so. It would be most appreciated, and I give many thanks! :D

When we reach the goal of 3,000 :points:, I will post a journal that will begin the contest. Until then, it will remain a secret.

You must be logged in to donate.

I just noticed that I have 13,900+ page views! :O Wow!
Also, I'm digging this new activity widget. Looks really sleek and easy to use! :)
Now that I've taken some time to settle back, I'm wondering if I inform people about my YouTube channel. I'm still a bit skeptical about posting it now, since I only just recently came back, but I'm interested in feedback. Should I do that? Or just wait a little more before talking about it?
...:|

Well...hi everyone. It's been...almost a year since I've been on DA...and I'm sorry if it feels like I abandoned you guys.

I feel really bad for not giving a warning as to why I suddenly vanished from the internet, or DA for the most part. After trying to figure out everything for writing and worrying about working and a lot of other things that life threw at me, it took a massive toll on me and I just stopped coming on. I would have come back sooner, but I felt too ashamed to come back because of how suddenly I just disappeared. And for that, I'm terribly sorry.

As for the writing...I don't even know anymore. To clarify, no. I'm not depressed or anything like that. It just...feels like I've lost motivation to write them, and it sucks because I worked so hard on many of them that I feel shitty for even leaving the website because of all the hard work that I put into them over the years. It just feels like I wasted all the time I spent working on them into the late hours of the morning just to abandon them in a split second. But I know it wasn't a waste of time. All that writing I did for sake of showing my love and appreciation for video games and anime wasn't a waste of time at all. It may have been silly for others, especially since it was more than likely seen as a fangirl writing out her fantasies for a beloved show/game, but we all have ways of showing our appreciation to things we love, and I'm not ashamed to say that I've written these stories (or planned to write them anyway.)

I guess that was the biggest flaw of mine: piling so many ideas one on top of the other just brought me down because there was always something new that I wanted to start, but I had this fear that if I did I would just find something else interesting and write about that instead. That has always been a massive flaw of mine, and I'm not ashamed to admit that.

But worst of all, I feel like I've completely abandoned the people I've met on here, the people I've become friends with over the course of being on here and interacted with, only to suddenly disappear without a trace, no messages, no signs that I was leaving for a while, no goodbyes whatsoever. That's probably another reason why I was so afraid of coming back. How could I face the people I saw - no, the people I see - as friends? If they even consider me a friend anymore. Probably not, but hey. That's what I get for abandoning friends as if they mean nothing.

I'm a shitty person for what I did, and I'm sorry to anyone that may have checked back here every so often to wonder if I was alright. Yes, I am okay. I'm doing well. In fact, I actually started my YouTube channel just a couple weeks ago. I don't have much on there at the moment, but I thought it would be best to tell you guys because this is the first place I even mentioned the idea of wanting to become a YouTuber. But that's a different journal for a different day.

I want to try and come back here again, to reconnect with old friends and spread the word about the next step I've taken in life after talking so much about it over the past year. I know it probably seems like I'm only back just for the whole YouTube thing, and I hope it doesn't rub off on people in that manner. While I do wish to create a community through YouTube and get the word out as much as I can, I still want to return to this site and see old friends again and talk to them. If they're still around, of course. If not...well, again, that's what I get for leaving a site out of the blue the way I did.

As for the fanfictions...I don't even know anymore. It's been so long since I've actually touched any of the stories that I've just lost motivation for them. But again, I don't regret creating them; I regret having so many ideas to a point where I'm putting current projects on the back burner only to ultimately forget about them. However, despite saying that, it doesn't mean I've given up writing in general. I've been putting all my focus on a novel, one that I hope to get published in the future. There's a lot of work to be done with it, and it's still got a ways to go, but maybe I could get feedback on it. After all, I had a lot of feedback on this site with the fanfictions I wrote, and the other sites haven't really given me much to improve on. So maybe I'll post the first chapter here if people would be interested in reading it. If not, that's okay, too.

Again, I want to apologize immensely for just leaving you guys in the dark and abandoning you. It's up to you to decide whether to forgive me or not, and I would totally understand if many have left by now. Still, at least I was able to show how sorry I am, and to show that I'll do my best to try and come back here as often as possible.

If you read up this far, thanks. I appreciate it. And I'll try to be more active on here and chat with people again. If they still want to talk, anyway... :/

Talk to you soon.

Welcome to my page! Glad you've taken an interest in my works, even if you may just be passing by. The names Julie, or VisionaryDame. VD for short of you like. Doesn't matter to me!

To give a little background of myself, I'm a self-taught writer and have been writing for about six years now. Over the years, I've gotten lots improvements and learned many things about what it takes to be a moderately decent but not exactly perfect writer. I know, however, that my work will never be perfect in any way, which forces me to be a bit critical of myself and less..."braggy" for lack of a better term. However, it's for you guys to read and enjoy to your hearts content. At the moment, I've only been writing fanfiction stuff, but I am in the works of writing my own real fiction book for publishing. Since I'm on DA, the only kinds of works will be fanfiction, maybe an occasional fiction work depending on the requester.

On another note, I do plan to start my own YouTube channel under the same name - VisionaryDame. For now, nothing has been posted, as I am still planning out what I would like to do. However, I will be keeping it updated as much as possible until I finally post my first video. A journal is on it's way soon detailing what I have in mind, so keep an eye out for that!

If there's anything you'd like to know about me or what I do/plan to do, don't hesitate to ask! I don't bite! :D

Hope you enjoy your stay, and have a wonderful day/evening!

With Lots of Love,
VisionaryDame

Hello there Julie! My name is Riley, and I've taken a stumbled interest in some of the works in your gallery!
I've been meaning to ask some questions, hoping you could take part in answering them?
Do you find it... difficult when writing an original plot? Vise versa, do you find it difficult writing an original roleplay plot? 
And do you find music a boost to your creative juices while writing?
