I am an absolute and udder beginner. I've been browsing these forums for a couple months, but never manned up to make an account.
I must admit something.
I love writing. I write novels and poetry and everything literature.

I've gained a strong affinity for art. I want to learn so bad more than anything.
But I also want to be a writer.
It was extremely hard for me to finally admit that Writing is my first passion
And I should allocate more time towards that. But that does not mean
I will not allocate a lot of time towards Art. I plan on studying art for ATLEAST an hour and a half or more a day.
So, while my main passion ISN'T art, I am as motivated and passionate as somebody whose main passion is art.
