Late
I wanna take a moment to apologize to you guys. We've had nearly a month of inactivity here, and that's all my fault! So, to make up for that, I've posted two compliment journals, to hopefully get those compliment juices flowing again! It's an absolute honor to be spreading your love here, but my schedule of things I have to do sometimes conflicts with the things that I want to do, and as I'm the only one here for now, it's gotten a bit complicated, so if there are spouts of inactivity, please keep the compliments coming! I promise that I'll be back! Thank you guys so much for bearing with me, it means so much. ~Rayne :heart:

pea again with another update! thank you so much to everyone who suggested themes!! this year we have a whopping total of 158 themes to choose from, which is more than double the number we had last year. you guys are the best!! ♥ since there are so many amazing themes this year that it would be impossible to choose just 30 from such a big list (that's like.... 18% of all the themes that were suggested!!!! wow!!!), we're just gonna do the same thing we did last year and use a giant theme bank! you can pick and choose the themes you want to use from the theme bank on the front page to make your own list to follow!

hello all! peaseblossoms (https://www.deviantart.com/peaseblossoms) here! as i'm sure you know, napowrimo starts in a little under a week (6 days, to be exact!!), and i'm sure i'm not the only one breathlessly waiting for it! i've heard from several members of the dA lit community that gliitchmonth (https://www.deviantart.com/gliitchmonth) has become an anticipated tradition of sorts during napowrimo, and i know many people (myself included) are looking forward to what this year will bring. welcome, everyone! in order to get the ball rolling (admittedly a little later than usual, but rolling nevertheless), i have a few questions for you all: during our first year (2015) the group put out a single list of prompts with one

NaPoWriMo Wrap-Up 2017
Completed NaPo this year! In all honesty, it wasn't my highest priority. I thought about giving up on it a few times, but I made it! And I'm still proud of a few of my pieces. It didn't go as smoothly as last year, but overall I'm glad. I have been busier and in a better place emotionally than I was last April, so my writing can just lump it. Congrats to all the survivors, and I look forward to reading all the beautiful work you've done! Without further ado...

Of Petals and Thorns (1)
    The ache radiated throughout my good hand as I listened to the door unceremoniously close shut behind the two of us, severing all ties with the men beyond the other side of the door.  Shaking it a few times as Vaan and I moved forward, away from the resistance’s hideout to emerge into the northern sprawl of Lowtown and come to a stop.  I aimlessly stared forward while the citizens of Rabanastre went about with their everyday lives, the sound of my fist connecting with Captain Azelas’s jaw reverberating throughout my mind, along with the conversations that had been had during the course of my little outburst moments ago.  For t

we privileged few
old pages wear decay like a winter cloak shifting in the bitter, biting wind old souls have an awkward gait a drag and a click, a shuffle of burdened eyes we cross paths in the sudden inhale of an approaching collision we are too late to shield our bodies and the splinters dig deep a frozen thought and everything hangs in mid-air the stones in the river are smooth yet my skin crawls when i lift them to the sky ideals criss-cross outwardly from under my fingernails i may finally have pulled this soul back into its corporeal vessel but it no longer fits the ghost in me has no more time and time has run out, down the lamplit road blood-soake

Red petals on a concrete floor. The blooming season passed yesterday. Wilting no less, growing no more. I found a man dead back Boston way. A bed of velvet and daisies pushing. He never said a single word in my life. Speculation of a life with no sheen. White picket fence, a garden, kids and wife. Unpolished but pleased. Unfulfilled regrets. New old used car with too many miles. Settling down, pretend to want what you get. Flesh and blood slumped into a nameless pile. I remember the nothing I tried to compress. I remember the colors like there’s nothing else. Purple, Yellow, Red, dressed to impress. No one around to call out for newl

Ode to a Dog
 I got a lot of attention today. I am not sure why. Mostly, my humans stay in their beds, looking at shiny lights. I miss them, because I can not get up on the beds anymore, but they still love me. They take me for walks when I stand by the door, and they give me treats for standing up and telling them that I need to go out. They like to scratch me behind my ears some times, and that makes all the good feelings happen. And even though I am old, they still like to play with me. Some times, the largest one will hold me in place and scratch my chest until I have to lay down. It is lots of fun! It was harder to do these past few times. They say

death is a poet
the grim reaper loves his semicolons, cannot keep his breathless form from pausing delicately; he laments that he is only truly heard when he finally claims a full stop.

RPG Thoughtssssss
I think I started writing on rpgs when i was about 14 years old. I'm 29 now and my writing is recently on hiatus but thats like.. a long ass time being around rpgs. I've been through years of complaints and site activity slumps and I always found it a bit funny when someone has a beef with a particular site so they set out to make a fresh, new, exciting rpg that wont have any of the problems the other rpgs have!!! Theres nothing wrong with making new sites. All the best to you, honestly, I freaking love seeing new sites!! The more the merrier!! But please dont fool yourself into thinking your new site will be more welcoming and that your sit

Hey there young lady, how are you doing? I have started making mandolins....I figured if I wanted to learn to play, I had better build one first.
cholie's avatar
*smiles*

Hello, it's been quite the spell since I last heard from you. How are you? How've you been? That's awesome! How is learning the ins and outs of mandolins going for you? I personally think that the mandolin is an incredible instrument.

It has been way too long, but fear not, you were always in my thoughts. Mandolins are interesting little instruments, and I am enjoying the build process. The wood has been a bit expensive, as I will have between $600 and $1000 of material in each one.
