Finally back + DD!

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 3, 2013, 5:22 AM
Hello, all! :hug:

I'm back at last, and what an absolutely stunning surprise it was to come back to a Daily Deviation (my very first!). You could have knocked me over with a feather. I'm grateful beyond words to Emerald-Depths for featuring it, and to everyone who gave me positive feedback and told me of their own love of books and reading. You can see the DD below:

The Library by Elluna

I'd also like to apologize for overdue commitments and engagements. Upon my return from Paris, I was diagnosed with a severe throat inflammation (think hot weather + ice cold water in big gulps) and spiked a 104 degree fever. Once that was done, I had a few leftover exams to take care of at Uni, and then got sick again with the flu. It seems to be that time of the year for me.

But now I'm back, and how wonderful it is to be back to a DD and a loving, supportive community. I really love you all beyond words.

Also, I have officially graduated, and have my BA in psychology. I was so anxious to wrap up that particular chapter of my life. :dance:

Lots of love,
I hope you're all well,
Alex :heart:


Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Elluna
Daughter of Smoke and Bone
“I am one of billions. I am stardust gathered fleetingly into form. I will be ungathered. The stardust will go on to be other things someday and I will be free.” - Laini Taylor, Days of Blood and Starlight

:bulletblue: The kind of inspiration derived from books is incomparable with any other kind, in my own little universe. This is hardly the first time I'm saying it, but it is the first time a piece was directly inspired by a book. In this case, I have done my utmost to do justice to Laini Taylor's "Daughter of Smoke and Bone", and the principal protagonist therein. Karou has stayed with me to this day, and Karou will stay with me for a long, long time to come. Her strength is unparalleled, and her undying hope is worthy of her name.
:bulletblue: Dedicated to Laini Taylor, to Ellai, to Brimstone and to angel-lovers.

:bulletwhite: On a personal note, I realize I have been away, and I apologize. I never plan on a hiatus (of the artistic variety), but it does happen nonetheless. I double-book my time, art takes a backseat to other pursuits, life occasionally gets away from me. The bright side, however, is in these very moments - the ones when I return and have something to show for it. :heart:
:bulletwhite: My premium membership has expired, so I can't enable critiques, but I welcome any and all constructive criticism.
:bulletwhite: If you have read and enjoyed Laini Taylor's books, please feel free to fangirl in the comments below. ;)
