Waggish Writer Week 1 Reflections
Updated: Apr 23, 2021
Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit Waggish Writer.
It has been a week since I made a leap of faith to release creativity to the universe via the Internet. The 'Aha' moment was being able to find my website where I was found on the first page when I looked up Waggish Writer for the first time. I was a few entries low, but it is hard to complain when you see a dog as the first image of the search page. Waggish is a word mostly associated with dogs, and I am more of a dog person than cat person. Cats have their charms, but I place dog first.
My ranking most likely would have changed at this time, but I can live with that at this stage because it is only week one of a life-long journey I am taking my creativity and whoever wishes me to join me in my adventures in the written word.
Content quality is important to me as a creator. I want to engage and inspire visitors to pursue creativity in their own ways. Writing is my first love in the realm of creativity. Another avenue of creativity I am dabbling in is drawing that I am doing for my FanFiction writing.
I started writing FanFiction for FanFiction.net in December of 2015, but it has been a hiatus until I decided to advance my creative outlets by creating Waggish Writer. One of the challenges that I gave myself with my FanFiction writing is to draw cover images.
My profile image is a rose, the first one I attempted with a tutorial. I'm fairly pleased by it as it was my first attempt following the guide for the rose image. Pride's Moon Bride is a hybrid of two tutorials, one for a moon and one for a wolf's paw print. Cover images I recently created are for "True Intention" and "X-Wielder: Nobody Chasing" as the sizing of FanFiction.net for images are challenging. I'll finagle it, but I'll do it on my own time so it looks good and I can be proud of it as a creator.
I am planning to relocate the sources I used for my images to share them in case others are interested in creating their own images. Eventually, I may take the time to draw from real life to level up my drawing skills to create drawings from my own imagination rather than tutorials.
I am grateful to have started this website as it has helped given me direction and motivation that I have been missing from my life. I have tried following life in the traditional patterns, but I haven't been able to conform my heart to follow the traditional patterns of success. My mood has improved, and I actually had a loss of weight rather than a gain I expected. I feel that covers my overall reflection for the time being.
Thank you for taking time to visit Waggish Writer. If you wish to show your appreciation, you are welcome to...
