I am already 5 months together with the most awesome man in the world. He makes me feel like a little princess from day to day, and the great excitement before seeing him never stops.
We are planning to move together, after such a short time, we know, but the feeling is just right!

"Cup met saucer with a slight clatter. Hands trembling again, Moira set the tea aside on the coffee table in front of her then reached for her purse. It had wedged a little into a corner of the sofa and she had to tug at the strap a little to get it clear. He knew about the crayon. Oh God. Oh God. No one knew about the crayon. Jess was right. He was the real deal! Hope soared in her breast, made her heart thump painfully. She fumbled with the clasp, fished the treasured possession from its nest of soft tissue and handed it to him."
"he is the scientist driven mad by belief, and i am the coat slung haphazardly over his shoulder, humming with unbridled tension."

Art Isnot a competition.Art Is3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is self expression. It is a piece of you that is spread in many mediums, many forms.
It is not about perfect anatomy.
It is not about pageviews.
It is not about contests.
It is not about being "better" than someone you admire, or someone who admires you.
Use art to be. To exist. To further elaborate on what you are passionate about. To reach others on what you want to stay, to change, to continue to be.
Above all, be kind to your art. You are its first love.

How to improve your skills in close-up-photographySince many people asked me how I take my pictures and why they are so "special", I would like to tell you how I manage things when I take pictures.How to improve your skills in close-up-photography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I. Finding the location
When I go outside to take pictures of nature, I do barely have any concepts in my mind. I just go and let nature inspire me. The first important step is finding a location.It is not that difficult to find an interesting background. I personally do prefer backgrounds which are not monochrome. Many shades of light (light and dark contrasts or different colors) make your picture interesting, no matter if the final result will be monochrome or colorful in the end.I look out for locations where not many people are. Like a big meadow in front of a house or a field or forests. (Forests do have the special plus that it does almost always have different light shadings I mentioned in 2).
II. Know your possibilities!
You have found your favourite location? Great! Many people do the mistake to

December 9th - Mad LibsHey folks, in January The Event will take place. The Event is all about having fun with literature on deviantART. Leading up to this yet-to-be-named Event will be a series of activities for the lit community to partake in and enjoy themselves with. Stay tuned with CRLiterature or Nichrysalis for these Events.December 9th - Mad Libs2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is a Mad Lib
Mad Libs (from ad lib, a spontaneous improvisation) is a word game where one player prompts another for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story.
How this works
Choose only one of the 25 options available
Post a word that fits the description of what you chose (i.e. noun = lamp)
I will remove options as they are posted with suggestions
When every option has a word, I will post the completed mad lib in another journal

I find that I often link a series of the same places over and over.
