A New Day, A New Life.
Hello friends!
I have been absent from DA for a while. Mostly because so many changes have been happening in my life. On another hand... it's partly because I have lost the inspiration and optimism that I used to have when I was younger. It's funny how the thoughts and feelings you remeber like yesterday can vanish when your fingers appraoch the bright letters on your keyboard, shinning ominously, expecting you to know what to say. Expecting you to still want to say something after the things you thought were most important in your life, were shattered before you... What do I say? What can I say? Would anyone even want to hear me? That's why I wrote those stories, journals... poems online. Because I wanted to be heard. Because I was never sure if the people around me would want to listen. Or if they were really listening when I was being honest with them. Yet how can I be sure then, that I am heard here?
Between me and this monitor... this distance offers a sense of comfort. I don

Ripples Wrap Cover
This is the cover I finally decided on for my first novel. It took me several weeks to fix it up exactly as I wanted it and I'm still going to have to redo some of the text. I would absolutely Heart Love to get some feedback on this so please leave a comment. What you like...what you hate...whatever you think. Bunny Emoji-87 (Thanks) [V5] Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4] 
Purpose Story Cover Art
I created this cover for a short story I wrote a few months ago. I just posted it in Wattpad so if you'd like to read it, you can go here:… bunneh icon12 
The tale was written as a promotional story for my novel which is coming out in the autumn of 2017.bunneh icon4  I'll share a few chapters in Wattpad, maybe the whole thing. I'm still undecided on how much to share. It /is/ my first novel, after all, and I'm scared of doing something wrong. But we live and learn and sometimes we have to fall before we can fly.bunneh icon14  The cover was created using Gimp. I kept it very simple because I often do too much. It still took me at least two hours to get a pleasing result. bunneh icon17 Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and visit my page to read the story! Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4]

Bunny Emoji-88 (Hello) [V5] I've been working on a novel since November...well, maybe it'd be more accurate to say I started in October. I've just finished the second revision as well as a promotional story that I'll be sharing on my new website soon. I think I've just been so overwhelmed with life over the last couple of years. This novel has really helped me return to a creative way of thinking and living. And it all started the way any of my projects usually start... "Why don't I try this?" So I'm not going to quit creating art on paper just so I can create art with the written word. I'm not going to stop making chainmail or quit sewing costumes. I've just chosen to pursue novel writing in a more dedicated way than the other creative outlets I dabble in. Bunny Emoji-89 (Cheer) [V5] 

The book I'm working on now is titled "Ripples". It's a literary fantasy novel about a young girl who goes on a pilgrimage to find out what her purpose in life is. She finds out her purpose is to spark the unification of the people of her world. It's not easy for her. She's very shy and the youngest child in her family. And there's an undercurrent of cultural prejudice that threatens to separate the peoples even more. She has to learn how to overcome her own fears to be a bold leader the people will respect. And on the journey, she does find love, though she may have to sacrifice all that she has ever known to hold on to it.

The digital art I shared today is for a calendar I'm putting together as another promotional item for "Ripples". I'll share my favorites here.

I had a lot of fun putting these together. Each of the chapters in my book starts with a quote and I'll add some of those into the calendar. I'm really looking forward to the finished product.
