A few years ago I decided to pare down my galleries and got rid of the "art" that I thought wasnt as good as what my current standard was. Over all, I think I trimmed my gallery in half.
At the time, I was dealing with a pretty lengthy, and thorough, writers block and was more than a little disappointed in myself and dA- not writing and posting in any kind of consistency meant that I had a significant decrease in page views, comments and faves and even conversations. It seemed I couldnt even pay someone to read my work!
I thought that by getting rid of all of my older and "not as good" work it would inspire me to write more. I was wrong. I am still dealing with this block, which by now isnt a block so much as an obstacle that I get to conquer once in a while. And even though I have never been a prolific writer, until that point, I had been consistent in the amount of new work I was producing.

A couple of days ago, as I was going through my writing, organizing it, doing some editing, trying to figure out which ones were either finished, works in progress or unworkable, I realized how different some of my older work is compared to my "new" stuff- at least to me. I then remembered how, when I come across someone new to watch, I like to look at their older work and compare it to their new, to get an idea of their growth and progress as a writer. I feel it gives me a better, more rounded appreciation of not only their work but of who they are as a person.

Over the next few weeks, months, whatever, I will be posting some of my older work again. Some of it may be edited, some if it may be posted as is. If you are interested in reading them, please do.
If you are one of my "older" watchers, you may remember some of these, maybe not. Im not sure which ones were posted before.

"Schooled" is the first one of these. It has been edited.

As always, please feel free to ask questions, leave a comment or critique. But keep in mind, if its a critique, I may not be doing any editing once its posted.
