  • Reading: Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Heidi hi! :)

Some of you may have noticed that I recently put quite a few pieces from my gallery into storage, those pieces mainly being extracts from Bloodroot and Bracken and Thornless Wilds. The main reasons for this being that a) Over the summer I will be organising my MA portfolio, and I don't want to get accused of plagiarising myself Roll Eyes and b) Thornless Wilds has changed quite a bit since the last time I was posting extracts from it, so it made sense to me to put some of the older material into storage.

What's depressing about this is that the last thing I submitted that wasn't part of a longer piece I submitted back in October. :stare: I'm a terrible member of dA.

I wish I could say I have a whole bunch of short stories ready to submit but honestly I've barely worked on any short fiction since I started Bloodroot and Bracken. In my last journal I mentioned an LGBT retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but I've since realised that it could actually turn into something longer than a short story. ^^; 

Camp NaNoWriMo isn't going so well (but hey, when have I ever succeeded in any NaNo challenge? :P), because I've ended up getting a heap of reading done this month instead. I don't think I realised just how burned out I was after last term, so I think it was rather optimistic of me to even attempt Camp NaNoWriMo this month. :XD: One day I really want to take part in NaNo and succeed, but July's not going to be good for me (as I said I'll be working on my portfolio over the summer). I might - might - try and take part in NaNo this November, and perhaps see if I can write a super rough draft of Thornless Wilds, but I'll only be doing that if I have a complete draft of Bloodroot and Bracken by then (which hopefully I will).

As always I'm sorry I've been so quiet on here this year. I still have all of your work waiting in my inbox and I won't be getting rid of it until I've read it! If you ever feel like finding me elsewhere I'm much more active on tumblr and on my blog. :aww:

I hope everything's great where you are! :wave:


Artist | Student | Literature
United Kingdom
Call me Jess, I'm a 22 year old from England who recently graduated with a degree in English Literature with Creative Writing, and I've now returned to university to pursue an MA in Creative Writing.

Writing is both my hobby and my passion, and it's my dream to one day be a published author. Until that time you can find bits and pieces of what I write here.

You're well on your way to having your dreams come true, Jess. And now that I'm at your page, I see that you do have more from the, Allerdice family! Like I said, pick your publisher.
