Hey guys! It’s time for the first throwback of 2023! I’ve been planning on doing this throwback for a while now, but when I finally went back to get a picture of the moment when I sat down to write it, I found the picture is no longer around (*cries*). I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t save it (and if I did, I don’t know where it is now). But oh well! The picture is in my mind at least. Anyways, let’s get to it!
That Time I Got My First Fan Art
When I started sharing my writing on this blog, I got quite the attention for a while. You might remember my short story, The Card Dealer, which I wrote a number of years ago. It has so far been my most popular story on here, and I still think fondly of it. What I never talked about (but should have put on the spotlight) was the fact that a sweet blogger ended up doing some pretty awesome fan art for it!
One day some time ago I got a notification that someone had mentioned me in a post, and, to my surprise, one of my followers (who is also a blogger) had written a post about The Card Dealer and added a picture they had drawn of the Card Dealer himself. I was floored that this had actually happened and beyond excited! I so wish I had saved the picture, since it appears that the blogger changed a lot of their blog and all the old posts are gone. Maybe if I did a little more digging I might find the picture, so if I do, I’ll be sure to give it some recognition!
Thinking about this time still gives me some of the confidence I need to keep writing! What are your thoughts on it? Let me know in the comments below! And as always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful rest of the week!
