Meet Reynard

Reynard is a fox and thus the smallest of the main characters, though he makes up for his size by causing a lot of mischief.  Most of this mischief has involved Søren, such as the time Søren’s weekday alarms went off on Saturday or the time Søren’s dorm room was decorated with dry leaves.  Even when he was too young to leave the den, he was already causing mischief.  His father would often lament, “When I said I wanted to sire a fox among foxes, I never imagined it would be like this,” to which Reynard’s mother would reply, “He takes after you, dear.”  He is the youngest of his pa

Uploading and Publishing

Uploading and Publishing

I'm back from vacation! Well, actually, I've been back for a while now... ^^;  But I've been 'busy' catching up with friends, moving, getting a new cellphone, attending a Ren Faire, staying in a cabin near a national park, going to Rainfurrest 2013, and writing. In fact, I was an honorable mention in the writing competition at Rainfurrest this year. \^o^/  Perhaps next year I'll be in the top three...  But I doubt if you'll get a chance to read that piece on dA. You see, I've been looking into getting published, as that is a goal of mine, and have been learning that many publishers like to have an exclusive right to publish the work you sub

Vacationing

So I'm going off on a long adventure and won't be around online for a few weeks.  But I don't mind, as I'm finally going to Japan!!! \^o^/ In any case, I'll have notebooks with me and my camera, so there'll have to be a week or four following my vacation where I go through and find pictures to upload and finish editing those character backgrounds I've been working on. So may you all have a wonderful end of June and beginning of July!  I'll probably be fully back come August (as the two weeks immediately following my vacation are rather busy). I'm looking forward to seeing ~Tanya56 (https://www.deviantart.com/tanya56) and then eventually being much closer in time and spac

Meet the Characters

Meet the Characters

Like I promised, I have been working on a little something about the characters in my stories.  It's still very much in-progress, but at least I have Reynard's mostly done. ^^ But when I am finished, I should have a write up (and possibly an illustration) for the following characters: Søren Ræv Reynard Eadwig Friðuswiþ Prince Leonard Brand Rylan Dusk Aisling (as a bonus) Scholar Frank (potentially) The hope is that this will introduce you a bit more to the stories I'm creating and perhaps get you as excited about them as I am! ^^  I'm uploading what I have of Reynard's now and the others shall follow when they come! Blessings and

Hey Direlda, isn't it time to pick your 24 BEST of the best photographs of Asia and put together your own photo series? 

I'm waiting!  :D 
DireldaHobbyist Writer
I suppose I should do that... ^^;  But I'll have to wait until a little into August to have the time to work on photographs, as I have a lot of other things to take care of first.
