I have been at a crossroads lately as far as what I am going to pursue as a career. I’ve narrowed it down to two topics, art and writing.
It was very difficult to come to a decision, but I knew I had to because I can only concentrate 100% on one topic. I can’t give my all to both.
I’ve decided to go with art
- Because I already have a pretty stable “fan base” per se.
I have over 100 followers on my Instagram & I know I can get more if I really give it my all.
- I have sold several paintings
- I have several costumers wanting commission pieces.
- 99% of the people who see my art tell me I have “real talent”
Now, I know it won’t be easy. It has proven to not be easy so far. But just like anything, if you really want something it won’t come easy, you’ve got to work for it. And so far, this way of thinking has resulted very well for me.
Now, art and writing are both big loves of mine. So I can’t just do away with my writing 100% just because I chose art over it.
I will still be working on my writing, just that not as vigorously as my art. I’ve been working on a novel called “Galiana Chronicles”. I’ll continue to write this novel and “Loxely Chronicles” and some other ideas I have stored away. But as I said, my main focus will be my art.
I’ll be using Wattpad for my book/novel publishing.
