Name Written on the Water
Remove the dust from this glass hour and fill it up with earth's delights;
fill it with the sounds of the earth, wind, birds and storms;
fill it with yourself so that I might have you with me wherever I go;
fill me with the wonders of the world so that they may be marvelled when they expire.
Even the glass hour will become one with all things.

Cancer Awareness Contest Winners
This was a terribly hard contest to hold, an even harder to accept the entries, and finally, to realize that it was over. Not just the contest, but the life that it was held for.
Original news article here - Cancer Awareness Contest
All entrants received won this news feature.
EVERYONE who entered this contest was a winner to me. Your stories, your emotions, your time and your willingness to either participate or donate was wonderful, and it helped me to close over a little of my wounds.

Your smile feels like the cool blades,
The razors that dominated my skin so insane.
You eyes take me over, almost if not all,
Crashing down came all my walls.
A single touch left me gasping,
Needing the very air you take away.
When  it lingers just like it does now,
I’m poisoned by the fact that your always around.
Murdered you leave my very thoughts,
Its not enough, I can’t make you stop.
All this blood left spilled on the floor,
Is now your to take to hold.
Pieces fall into place, over and over,
You come rushing in to finish the pace.
While I’m left scattered and out of place,
But please take anything that’s left of me,
I’d give it up any way…
It’s the light that blinds my eyes from you,
Be the darkness leading me through,
My feet leave the cold, hard ground,
This is the way it should always be,
Breathlessly poisoned you leave me.
I’d give it up any way…

MISD: B is for Blame
Mrs. Bicker, having purchased for the eighth time a faulty childproof latch for her medicine cabinet, picked up the phone and dialed the item’s manufacturer.  She made it very clear that her ten-year-old son’s safety was her first priority and, should he attain injury from the contents of the aforementioned medicine cabinet, she was quite prepared to sue.
   The manager of the company, who had been having a decent day for a change, got off the phone and felt a pit of anger-incited nausea settle in his stomach.   Upset at having his day ruined, he blew his nose and called over to the main factory, ordering an immediate quality check of all production lines.
The factory floor manager slammed the phone down and chewed his thumbnail.  He had argued against an immediate quality check, not wanting to waste time and money by pausing production.  However, his superior had managed to be quite persuasive, reminding him that he was

i didn't mean to
my hair is dripping so wet
matching the sad brown in my eyes
the water was so deep
the blue now tinged an eerie color
i didn't mean to do it
It happened so quick, in a second
then it was all over
and the lights dimmed
as if in mourning of what was

An Observation of deviantART
I've come across many complaints in posts or journals or comment threads from people concerning their lack of visitors or comments.
One friend in particular compared my stats to theirs, wondering why my page views and such were so much higher when they had been on dA far longer than me, and at the time had just as many deviations.
I'll tell you all the same thing I told them:
Put yourself out there.
If all you do is post things on your own page, whether it be art, writing or journals, or reply to comments made on your own work, the only people who will ever know about it are those who are already watching you or the few who stumble across your work during searches.
You know the old adage 'what goes around, comes around'? It's true. Take it to heart and put it to use.
You want visitors to come to your page? Visit other pages. Your name appears on their visitor list and they may get curious.
You want comments? Comment elsewhere and your comment may garner replies. If your comment

Hello and welcome to Sunday's news article featuring five underappreciated and talented artists. All deviants featured have an average of no more than 10,000 pageviews a year while the deviations selected have less than 20 favourites.
Our news articles thrive on your suggestions, so if you know of any artists that fit the above criteria, or perhaps you're just keen to help out by actively searching for talented artists, then please visit our page and send us some suggestions. With your help, we can get those new and underappreciated artists the attention they deserve.
So without hesitation, I present to you this Sunday's features. I hope you enjoy :heart:

Oh jeez, long time no journal. Again. Anyways, just thought I'd share my joy that I am finally taking part in NaNoWriMo this year. Been meaning to for about 5 years and I finally got up the courage to have a go. It'll be Middle-earth fan-fiction, set mostly during the time of the War of the Ring. It'll probably end up being a bit rubbish, but I've not written on this scale for years, so I'm forgiving myself in advance for the atrocious writing. Anyway, if it ends up being something I'm evenly vaguely pleased with, I might post it on here. Yep, I will seriously post some lit for the first time in years. Oh my.

In other news, have some scrummy music suggestions:

I am an occasional writer, a vaguely regular photographer and a music obsessed mad scientist. Final year ecology student to be exact. Baby turtles are one of the cutest things on the planet. Canoodle is a good word, but not as awesome as appendage, which may or may not be my favourite word. I watch too many documentaries for my own good and have a habit of spouting random bits of information at people (which may or may not be relevant to the current conversation). I have an obsessive love for Dr Marten 1460oz boots (especially the lime green ones), stripy socks and monsterkookies' amazing jewellery. I love gigs but have a phobia of crowds, which is not the best combination. Anything else?

No worries - apologies I didn't leave any sort of constructive comment. I normally hate faving and running, but your piece was just the sort of motivation I needed for some writing I'm doing!

It's fine! I understand how that is, with wanting to leave constructive comments but not having time.
