the elusive collaboration of two souls
I've  never much been one for collaboration sifting through the prose I choke up, trying awkwardly to piece  this thought   and  that feeling  together there's no cure for depression, some pill you can take to mend your broken heart you just have to weather the storm while you were sleeping all those months, caught in an endless winter, your home was breaking down damage to the foundation, mold spots like freckles on the now faded and peeling wallpaper everything left just as it was, the coffee mugs half full with mold sealed away under a coat of dust, the evidence of a life once lived the rain beat down on the flower beds with no mer

Need to Place that Novel?
Hey everyone! I'm working at a publishing house these days. One that focuses on genre fiction, particularly the surreal, speculative, fantastic, etc. It's called the Metaphysical Circus Press and I'm one of the novel editors. So, seeing as how I know there's a fantastic literary community here, I figured I'd leave a link for you guys to take advantage of if you're looking for a press that provides free, continuous marketing and a larger author percentage of profits than just about anywhere. I hope to see some of you there soon! -Your faithful Paladin http://www.metaphysicalcircus.com/

Miss Me?
Hello, all! Long time, no see, and I've greatly missed everyone in the DA community. As anyone who would be getting notified about this journal knows, I archived all of my writing on this site when I started actually getting published, as most publishers aren't terrifically thrilled when their writers' work is available for free online through a third party. When I archived my work, I told you all that I would let you know when you could read my writing in other places. I've finally gotten to the point where I have enough out there that I'm proud to call my own that I have come back to tell you about it and post some links to where you can

A Sad Announcement-- Watchers, Please Read
As those of you who follow my work and journals know, I am a young writer just starting to break into the industry and establish myself. I have a couple forthcoming publications for 2012 and have talked to several other publishers about the possibility of more. Unfortunately, though, I have been informed that publishers tend not to be too happy with new writers having material online that they're attempting to get people to pay to read in print, so it has been suggested that I delete my Deviant Art account. I do not wish to do this, since I really love the community here and I've put a lot of hard work into maintaining my account and giving a

Hey! Long time, no chat. I've been well. Still doing the university thing, working in the English department, writing like a fiend. Might intern at a publishing house soon. How about you? Life treating you well?

It's... honestly not been great, but at the same time revelatory. I'm studying poetry this year at uni myself. :)

Also, thanks for the favorite!

Well, what's been not so great? It's cool to hear that you're making a study of poetry... though I might be a little biased! :XD:

Anytime! It was a really cool pic.

Hullo! :hug: 

I'm doing quite well. Got my nose to the grindstone at the moment, but they're great classes this time around, so I don't mind a bit.

How have you been?

Things have gone up and down for me. I lost my father in May, he had a brain haemorrhage. At least he didn't suffer and we got to say goodbye. I miss him terribly.
