Life without Internet

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 9:29 PM
So I took a few days off of the internet because I was becoming far too depressed about everything related to it. I finally realized the meaning of the verse "Be still and know that I am God," and put away the distractions to focus on what really mattered in my life.

For three days, I experienced the most peace I have in years. The first day was the hardest of course, but after I got past the breakers, I learned how much of my life's stress was due to selfish goals. Self-oriented goals.
-My lack of a career
-My depression over feeling like no one cared about my art
-The anxiety of not receiving the amount of feedback on any of my art platforms
-Being overwhelmed by commissions
-Being overwhelmed in general.

Everything from the emails to just opening Tumblr caused anxiety. "How did THAT get 400 notes and everything I do barely scrapes three??" "I have 52 emails to sort x.x" "More people care about the art they can buy from me, than the actual craft of my art at all :-/" and so forth. The thoughts that constantly plague my mind whenever I open my laptop for the day. I live at home. I stare at a screen ALL day until I sleep. And all I'm staring at is DA, Tumblr and FA. And the numbers (or lack there of) are always in my face. CONSTANTLY judging me based on comment count, notes, faves, likes, etc. I couldn't escape it.

Anyway, three days off of that finally managed to sever my CARE about those things. I finally had peace and refocused on what matters and what truly doesn't. but the moment I got back on the internet, several days later, the anxiety returned. Part of me wonders if I'm really even cut out for the net-life anymore. My world was built here. My friends, my social life, my reputation, my career (literally). And I guess that's what God was trying to point out. ...My world was built HERE.

Gosh, I know. It probably sounds nerdy or shut-in, or I don't know what all. But that's my life after college ended in 2010. and I don't know that I can tough it out. I don't really have anyTHING else or WHERE else to go, but if I seem despondent lately, it's because I think I'm finally slowing down in the rat-race.

Hi.  I'm working on a story that involves my wolf character Cindy.  Did you want to read what I wrote so far?

What do you think of this? I finally colored this sketch I did back in May, and changed two of the poses.

When you make your file to print on createspace, what does the file end up looking like? Is it just a pdf with the cover, body and back all in order? The template they provided for the cover and back had a lot of white space to account for trimming and the cover and back were next to each other. Do I have to keep that up for all the pages in between? Like, do I have to have the white space and the pages next to each other? Can I see what your file looks like for reference?

Howdy, I don't currently have any of my PDFs on hand, but the cover image and back cover image are separate from the content. They provide templates on the site as well as a digital proof. They tell you how many inches to leave for margins, and it alternates. Something like even pages have more white space on the right than the left or vice versa x.x It's been a while! But that's to make up for the spine. Sorry if that wasn't much help!

Ah okay, thank you very much. 
So does that means during the submission process, you upload two files? The two being the cover+back and then a body file?

Yep! That's correct. I would go through the process with the sketches of what you've got before you complete it just to make sure your margins are correct

Hey there! I took your online character design class a looong time ago. I went under a different account (vintagewolf or something?? Even I forget). I just want to thank you for those classes all that time ago. You changed me from having a typical wolf fursona to this fluffy thing: irishthorns.deviantart.com/art…
