Tidbits about Journals/Features"To Sta.sh, or not to Sta.sh?"
that is the question...
There are two (main) ways to write a journal!
1) The first one, we tend to use when we join dA:
(at first most of us do not know what Sta.sh is, right?!)

INSPIRATIONAnsel Adams quotes:
"There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept."

I will go through the following cases of being ignored:

Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T
Follow your dreams. The only thing stopping U is UAwake at night, you feel alone.
But when day comes, the hope unfolds.
Everlasting uncertainties guide you.
They remind you that you must go on.
Build a bridge to the heavens yourself,
using only imagination.
Hell's rivers will burn wood and melt metal,
but your dreams will remain untouched.
A Stitch in Time saves N...I made the first stitch
I made a second
but you didn't notice.
I made a third
and still had hope.
After the fourth
I became desperate.
The fifth stitch
lead to disappointment
The sixth stitch
was just as futile
The seventh stitch
the eigth stitch
The ninth stitch
was marking the end.
