Hi everyone! :wave:

I know this is a mid week journal, but I haven't actually wrote one in a while I've just done meme's because I was bored out of my mind. But this time I've actually got news!!

Ok first of all because I didn't mention it before, I came a worthy second in :iconwritingmadefun: Halloween zombie contest. I am very happy as I never thought I would have even made it to the final five, but to actually come this close to winning. So congrats to the winner, and I thank the group very much.

But now, because I still can't even believe it's actually happing, the big news.
I, yes me, the plain little sixteen year old from Ireland is actually going to have three of my poems published!!
Yes you heard it right, freaking published!!! In a actual book!! How crazy is that?!
I still can't believe it, I only submitted my work with the thought that "I'm too young, too amateurish, and that they won't like my stuff" but wouldn't you know they liked it and chose three!
:la: :happybounce: :icondummydanceplz: :squee:
So next year, I'm going to have a copy of the book with my work it in!
Ahhh!!!!!!!
Thank you to everyone who believed in me! :heart:
I love you all!

So that leaves me with one final thought, does this mean I change my artist tag from student to professional? :laughing:
  • Mood: Triumph
  • Listening to: Dirty little secret- All American Rejects
  • Reading: Underworld
  • Playing: The hunger games adventure and shooting star game
  • Eating: SWEETIES!

That's FANTASTIC news Indigo! You're a fantastic poet, and I'm glad that they liked your work enough to publish it in a book! This is the first I've really heard of someone accomplishing something like this so you should be really, really proud of yourself. So congratulations my fellow Owl, I'm really insanely happy for you! Keep practicing and try to get published again, I say! :D :glomp:


...Not to kill your joy --as it is WELL deserved indeed!-- but I think perhaps that poem publishing is a little easier than prose publishing, just because its easier to find faults n prose than it is to find faults with poetry. So you have boosted my hopes to get a book published one day --and thank you for that!-- but you've done so in a way that has the weensiest hint of bitter.

Thank you so much! I'm still in shock that they liked it enough!
Really? I'm one of many who have been published from dA
Thank you, I'll try! :hug:

I do think so too, poetry has a way of expressing feeling and emotions, or a memory of the poet, in many different ways.
Where as prose is much different, sometimes you have to catch the readers attention from the very start and make sure you keep them entertained, may that be with surprises in your story, or a dramatic tale, what ever it may be I do believe it is much harder.
I myself can't stick to prose, short stories are as far as I get.
I wish you luck with your book. But I have to ask, bitter? How?

Well, I wish you luck whatever you decide to do! :3

What I find many people struggle with in prose is the hook and emotion, which are the two most important parts of good writing. Yet the hardest at the same time... I'm not that swell at writing poetry myself but I imagine once you get the hang of it it's not hard to express emotions in very heart wrenching ways, whether you're wrenching your readers through bad or good emotions. Also it's much shorter to write than a novel, so I suppose that may be part of it, due to most people having pretty short attention spans... Thank you for the luck though, I'm sure going to need it if I'm going to master my craft! As for the bitter thing, I mean my first response to your news was: "WOO YEAH GOOD FOR HER!" But after a few moments I started thinking: "...Fffff how long is it going to take for me to get any story published compared to how fast she did it with poetry? D:" ...But then I went back to the "yay for her" thoughts.

Thank you.

That's true, it's a hard thing to craft prose that is, I never have actually took the time to write a story that was longer than four chapters. So I really hope you better than me lol.

Oh I see well I wasn't expecting they to actually like it, so I'm really shocked. But I'm sure you will just a good, or even better than myself

You're quiet welcome.

Ah well, everyone can always improve and it depends really on what your tastes are to determine if you would think poetry or prose is "better" than the other. One just usually takes more time than the other.

And I would be too, if I had done something like that. However I have to thank you for the compliments, they really do mean a lot to me. :hug:

I know how it is. I just believed after I have signed the contract.... I still have to write my bio though.
Some days ago, I thought this year was going too fast... why everything seems to be running in slow motion? September is so far!
