Blurb about my book.

Synopsis:

Dazzling cities where dragons and airships fly among enchanted skyscrapers and winged people nest on rooftops under a never-setting sun.

Hidden villages in desert caverns, populated entirely by shapeshifters who live half their lives blind.

Armies of towering wolfen beings waging vicious battle under the blood moon.

Myriad nations of the alien world of Zalensia, a realm where humans find themselves summoned in their slumber, living dual lives in dreams and on Earth.

Sophia is one such human. Every night she dreams of flying, never assuming more of the realm on the other side - until she wakes one morning with wings on her back. Now she must use her sleeping hours to venture across this magical landscape, finding answers to her transformation whilst keeping it hidden on Earth.

But Zalensia is not a world made for humans, and the beings that call it home do not take kindly to outsiders...

where doing it man

where MAKING THIS HAPEN
SO most of the city -- most of the state seems to be underwater now! We've gotten 25% of our yearly rainfall in two days! Also some tornadoes but that's nothing new for TN! Also I was in the hospital because I had some freaking awful asthma crap happen and my lungs are all gunky and I coughed until I pulled my back and felt like I gargled with thumb-tacks and anyway I went to the hospital and I haven't slept in over 24 hours and I am tweaked on so many uppers! First my inhaler which is steroidal! Then they gave me steroid pills! Then they made me smoke some kind of... steroid bong for like 20 minutes! Anyway when we tried to drive back the road was a river so we had to take a half-hour detour along high ground and I'm pretty glad that we live on high ground and on the second story of our building!

I feel like I fell down a flight of stairs with a piece of barbed wire in my windpipe and I'm kind of freaking out about being surrounded by standing water with all the highways closed off but all these drugs are flipping me into some kind of something like wow!

It should go without saying that I'm not going to the final day of MTAC!

I'm going to stuff my face and fall into a hard sleep when this stuff all wears off bye!
I feel like a train wreck and I literally have no voice right now. I don't see myself going to the rest of MTAC. Sorry to anyone I didn't get to see yet.

Another edit: okay, I'll try to go, I'll take it easy this time. My muscles aren't as sore... still can't talk, so, if you see me and I don't say anything that's why! And I definitely won't be doing any karaoke, heh.

I'm not wearing my Seaking dress anymore. A seam on the corset ripped so I'll have to shelve it until I can fix it...or talk my mom into fixing it.
LAST WAAARNING! I'm about to head to bed; tomorrow, I have night class and then turn in early. And then I will be GONE until Monday at the -earliest-! If you want to arrange to meet me at MTAC then send me a message quick about it!

mtac.net/

I will be there all weekend, April 30 - May 2, Friday to Sunday!

You may spot me in THIS DRESS most likely (but I might not wear it on every day): jojobynxfwee.deviantart.com/ar…

When I'm out of the dress, I will likely have a dragon or gryphon on my shoulder, and it will turn its head to look at you.

I often drift into the video game room for Rock Band, or into the analog game room for sitting around being a bum. If all else fails, you are 100% guaranteed to find me at the karaoke party.

As a reminder, I'll be at the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention if anyone wants to meet me there. For the last day (Sunday), I'll be wearing a black and white prom dress, with black wings, wearing a white-and-blue fuzzy dragon puppet on my shoulder. :3 I'll probably just be floating around, watching anime, playing video and analog games, or doin' whatever.
I will be attending MTAC this year, April 3-5. So anyone who wants to run into me in person can see me there!

Anyone on my friend/watch/buddy list/Facebook is pretty much a given as someone I wouldn't mind meeting. So if you're there, tell me! And if I don't know what you look like, telling me that wouldn't hurt either (and your costume, if any).

I will wearing my Seaking-tan/gijinka costume on at least one day. I'll probably also wear that black and red ballgown that I wore last year (there's a pic of me in it on my Death by Coffee website). Third outfit pending -- I might go with the gray wings and pet griffin again.
So it turns out I'm not going to WCAD after all. Why? Because the guy who was supposed to be helping us with forms and loan applications was a lazy douchebag who waited until it was too late and didn't even care that I wasn't going to be able to go. So, last-minute, I went to ITT Tech today and signed up all at once, yes, FINISHED IT ALL IN ONE DAY INSTEAD OF WAITING FOR THREE MONTHS FOR THE FORMS TO GET SENT TO US ONE AT A TIME, and I'll be taking a two-year course with a major in Drafting & Design. So I'll basically be pursuing a field of architecture, engineering, technical illustrations, etcetera now. Um. Expect some interesting and very different stuff to start showing up in my gallery in the future.
It is our pleasure to accept your application to attend Watkins College of Art & Design beginning with the Fall 2008 semester.

In addition, after reviewing your application, the fine arts faculty has chosen to award you the Raw Talent Scholarship. Under the terms of this award you will receive $1,000 towards tuition, split equally over your first two semesters (fall and spring), based on full-time enrollment of 12 or more credit hours. Also, if your cumulative grade point average stays at 3.25 or above, you will receive additional monies under our scholarships for continuing student program.

[...]

Again, congratulations, and we sincerely look forward to welcoming you to our college.

Very sincerely,
Linda Schwab

We found a house!
It really sucks when you can't find a home.

Cocoa Beach is worthless to us, so soon we will go to Ocala instead. I hope we find a home soon...
We went through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, up through New England and surrounding environs, then came down through Pennsylvania and the Carolinas and are now in Florida! Now we just need to find a home to rent...(We're in a trailer park currently.)
I am moving to Florida. Don't ask why, there are a million reasons of various types- emotional, mental, educational, physical, financial, vocational - and maybe a touch of simple nomadic wanderlust. But I will explain a few things.

It is the end of the month. We are closing the deal on the house. This means it will be officially sold. Someone else will own it. We will hurry up, pack our stuff, buy potloads of necessities (and stuff we don't need, too) including an RV and a moving van. We may sell our SUV, as we only have two drivers.

Then I will be gone a long, long time.

We are taking a north-curving route - all map sites say this is the quickest - and on the way we are stopping in Tennessee to visit my relative Annette, and Illinois to visit my boyfriend, Austin, neither of whom I've met.

We are planning to deviate through New England as well, meaning straying far from our course to sweep through New York and then down through the other 12. We may stop in some of these places, including other states such as Pennsylvania, and we may also backtrack to some states.

Then we will reach Florida. This does not necessarily mean an immediate return to the internet on my part.

We must buy a house. Or rent. We do not want to be permanently rooted to our RV. Then we must...well, move in. Unpack. Hook up the pc. Get jobs, clubs, schooling (well, not until NEXT semester, actually)...

In other words, I have no idea when the heck I will actually be returning. It may be a month - or more. I'm not the exact date we're leaving, either, but for when we do, goodbye to everyone.

To my watchers, viewers, friends, thank you. I have earned a level of respect and small fame I never thought I would be able to achieve, especially with my meagre art. Thanks to everyone else for teaching me new art techniques; for being at or above my level to make me want to try as hard as I can to beat you; for buying me art supplies; for just saying "pretty" for my pictures. You make art seem worth it.

To my rivals, enemies, and general people-not-liking-me, I apologize: I know I am often a little Hermione and can be very, very uppity, haughty, and sometimes just a plain know-it-all arrogant jerk. I know I often pick fights and let myself get purposely provoked. I know sometimes I just can't help picking at every little thing and being over-literal, over-sensitive, and over-perfectional. Sorry about that. ^^;;

To everyone else: Just thanks for existing. Through the butterfly effect I'm sure every entity has somehow affected my life in minor or major ways, and though some might seem bad at the time, there is always some positive aspect to balance it (even when I don't notice at first). Though I'm pretty sure every entity is not reading this, as humans so far are the only entities able to read (and not even all of them, either). But, for everyone who IS reading this, just...thanks. For changing things, even when you don't try...

Okay, enough with the subtheistic speeches and sappy babble.

So long, sayonara, au revoir, adios, aloha, αντίο, auf wiedersehen, vaarwel, namaarie, sahha, ach chwi eirweith!
Hullo. I'm quite lazy. Too lazy, in fact, to make a DevID. So I'm using my Journal entry instead. Haha.

I'm not one of those stuffy artists with absolutely no time to draw extra things whatsoever. In fact, I often find I have too much time but nothing to draw. So ask me to draw something. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling when people ask for pictures. It just makes my day to know I'm worthy enough to be asked, instead of someone asking...oh, say, Kurot or Messa or Hibbary or someone supurb like that...

So go ahead and send me a Note! Or just respond to the Journal entry, I guess. Go on, I won't bite.

Art plans:

A double-commission (like, a set of two pictures for one person) to get working on...
