Oh hey! :heart: I actually saw that ~darkfeatheredwings chose to critique this for PIF and I thought I'd write a critique as well. I think I ...

If you have a piece you'd like critiqued, please feel free to note me!


Sleep Deprivation is my Friend

Hiiiii, guys.  :lol:

Well, I'm caught up on FFM after three days of NOPE.  I got a really bad migraine one day, then the next day I just wasn't feeling it, and then the next day... I really didn't have any excuse, I started to slip into that horrible procrastination-due-to-dread-of-all-that-work mode and last night I stayed up and pulled myself out of it and wrote four stories in the span of three hours.

I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm literally only awake right now because CAFFEINE.

Anyway, now that I'm caught up--or a day ahead, depending on how you look at it--I'm hoping to get caught up soon on my reading.  Both FFM reading and general DA reading.  I read a couple of the most recent pieces by a couple people I watch, and I'm so sorry I've been neglecting you all this month, but I'm working on getting caught up.

Also, I'm still looking for new writers on DA for future DLR's New Artist Highlight, so if you find an awesome one who's been around for 2 years or less, pleeeease shoot me a note with their username and/or a piece of theirs you think I should check out.  I've already gotten one such note, and I'd love to see more!

All right.  Now.  It's 6:40 a.m. here and several hours past TIME FOR ME TO CRASH.  I love you wonderful people!  :love:

Writing is my life. I am left-handed. I don't like most people, but I find all people endlessly fascinating. I'm the textbook definition of an INFJ, have an obsession with owls, and would give anything to be paid to travel the world and write about the places I see. Except my left hand, because I need that to write.

Amazing People:

Some of my very favorite deviants:

:iconplaugh: - my daddy, Jedi Master, and hero
:iconsaavik33: - the love of my life, my "Wesley"
:iconravenxnevermore: - my best friend and partner in crime
:iconpsithurisms: - my long distance 'twin' from the West Indies
:iconchristianonfire7: - my absolute favorite meanie face

Show them some love! :heart:

When you're reading a story, be it a short story or a novel, how do you like your exposition? 

8 deviants said Gradually; I want the info, but I don't want to feel like I'm reading exposition. Make it subtle.
3 deviants said Upfront; I want to know the details right away, as the story begins. (By this I do NOT mean an info dump.)
