Journal Entry: Sun Mar 1, 2015, 2:02 PM


Hello

The past few months, I have been thinking a lot about my identity on deviantART, one which has been seen as a community person. It's never bothered me, in fact I have relished in it and taken that role to the heart. I'd like to believe I do a good job of it too.

However, when I stepped down from my volunteer position last year, I kept saying I needed to be the writer again. I've not done that and instead find my weekends drafting community based projects and journals- time that I could be writing. If I want to be taken seriously as an artist, then I need to take myself seriously.

It sounds like I am having an existential crisis here, but actually I've never felt clearer as to what I want. I'm not going away, I just need to refocus myself and be selfish for once. The username change is just the first thing. 

BeccaJS keeps things simple, it's my actual name (no Beyoncé involved anymore!). I had Beccalicious for 10 years, it's time for something new :)

Hi! I just wanted to say Happy New Year! I'm a new fanfic writer, I've only been writing them for a year or two, but I also write just regular fiction! I was wondering if you have any tips for a writer like myself?
