Random Favourites


I've had a stressful few weeks. Just as things were starting to settle, they went wonky again and I had to race around putting out fires (not literally, thank god). I'm still trying to work out some of it, but it's taking forever (thanks to my ex. the dog ate the papers, he tells me. the dog?? ) Forgive my rant. Anyhow, point is, it's never boring out here even when I really wish it was. I did have a very nice Valentine's though. My dangerous bear took me out for a fancy dinner and then we spent the day doing all my favorite things. No details, just trust me, it was lovely :heart:

As far as my projects, I had a small but appreciated break through in my novel and finally got a scene down that I have been working on for weeks. I haven't even attempted an edit on it, but now I can at least move on with the narrative. Heart and Home is coming along nicely and I have another 2-3 parts to complete Strange Companions. I've started putting together a storyline for DA:I but I haven't actually *finished* the game yet so it'll be awhile before I actually write it.

I also got invited to participate as a writer on a comedy web series. I don't usually do comedy, so I have no idea how it will turn out or if anything I write will get used in the actual filmed series. Hopefully I will have some updates on this as it comes together, but right now it's a distant (if exciting) project.

Other than that? Hmmm. The usual work nonsense (thankfully slowed down now that classes are in session). My habitual offenders and most adorable darlings still haunt me at every opportunity. I can't fix everything for them, but I do try ^_^  I've been trading off between Dragon Age Inquisition and Kingdoms of Amalur in my game time, and am really enjoying both. I got to see what happens when you romance Iron Bull on my hubbie's playthrough and it still makes me laugh.  50 Shades of Bull? That dwarf will *never* be the same. Also tabletopping an oldie but a goodie, AD&D Dragon Mountain :D 

I'm still reading the Firekeeper saga from Jane Lindskold and Codex Alera from Jim Butcher. Both really excellent and very different fantasy series. The one makes me want to write about wolves and the other inspires me to rethink all the magical tropes I've learned. I'm always up for new books though, if you've a suggestion.

I haven't gotten around to the last 3 seasons of the Walking Dead OR Game of Thrones. I will.  Just. Not right now xD  Not much in the way of movies either. Seems like if I'm going to plop down in front of the tube, I may as well have a keyboard on my lap, no?

:hugs: Thank you for joining Authors-Club!   We are so glad to have you join our group and adding our work to our collection! 

On behalf of the group, here's just a little bit of information as to what we're about! :

-- We support the literature community of Deviant Art by creating a safe, creative atmosphere for artists to come together and make connections with one another.

-- Are you a little lost as to how to get involved in the writing side of DA? Take a look at this helpful guide, How to get started with the Lit Community.  It's got some wonderful advice and has helped many a deviant get their feet wet, so to speak, in the lit world!

-- We also opened up a chatroom!!  We're currently trying to set up a better schedule, but we'll host little chats here and there fairly soon!

-- Before you start submitting, please familiarize yourself with our Submission Rules! This is just to make sure everyone's on the same page as far as contributing work goes, and helps keep the group running smoothly!

Again, thank you so much for joining our club! If you need anything at all, do not be afraid to ask! Wither it be about our club, or even about the going on's in Deviant Art!  

I hope that you enjoy this group and if at any time you have questions, concerns, or ideas please contact me jackofalltrades0097 , or any of the other admin!  We're here to help!

DA keeps stealing people off of my Watch list, it seems.
Lets hope you'll stick, this time!

DA likes to do odd things at odd times for no apparent reason.  Perversity of the inanimate and all that :D  Thanks for the (re) add!

It's terrible - someone might be painting the next Mona Lisa out there and I'll never know!

And as if prompted by cosmic balance, DA sometimes displays the same deviant twice in my friends list. Go figure. Definitely a big perv of an inanimate thing, DA.

dA has never pulled that one on me, but sometimes it lists groups I don't remember watching.  That *might* be user error >.< Not that I admit to it but am willing to entertain the possibility of a late night click :D
