Who. Am. I. That question of identity, of the self’s place in a comparatively narcissistic society – a society which values the essence of being different as desirable, yet which attempts to be different in the same way…ahem. Sorry. I get carried away sometimes.

I’m afraid I don’t really have an answer, except to say that I’m a university student, studying a double degree of Creative Arts (major: Creative Writing) and Arts (major: English Literatures). I love me some learnin'!

And that I’m a nineteen-year-old Christian (feel free to ask me anything, I don't bite!) who is frustrated with the late release dates of most films in Australian cinemas, who also likes to read (but starts many more books than he finishes), and gets irritated when drivers don’t use their indicators. Tut-tut.

And I’m a Grammar Nazi. That is all.

Words are my life. Dreaming is my fuel. Imagination is my sanity. God's love is my motivation.


I'm a special swing admin over at DailyLitRecognition, so please suggest any good literature pieces you see. More information and my guidelines can be found here.

Six D L D s, two D D s, and still counting (hopefully)!

You can find me on my blog, tumblr or Twitter!

Also, the picture way up there? Yeah, that was a gift from my good friend MWBlueWolf. He's seriously awesome, and you should take a look at his page!

DLD is now DLR

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 19, 2014, 12:01 AM
Hey everyone!

Just wanted to put up a journal saying that DailyLitDeviations is no more. It's now been replaced by Daily Lit Recognition: :iconlitrecognition:. (I'd like to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to SilverInkblot, who's doing a fantastic job of sorting through the rubble and building a civilisation, phoenix-like from the ashes.) I've volunteered to be a special swing-admin, which means I will fill in for any of the other admins who are absent for whatever reason. However, I can put forward suggested pieces at any time, so feel free to suggest away!

To suggest a piece, simply note me with 'DLR suggestion' in the subject line, and include a link to the deviation, plus a statement detailing why you think the piece is worthy of recognition! (Even one sentence is fine!) Easy as that!

You can suggest poetry or prose, but DLR does not accept fanfiction (sorry!), and I don't accept deviations that form parts of a series (though you should check out VertigoArt and/or callerofcrows because they'll be involved with a bi-monthly article dedicated to chaptered works :w00t:). I tend to go for pieces that say a lot in as few words as possible. I also prefer subtlety over being explicit, though if there's a piece you love, send it my way and I'm sure I'll feel the same way!

Thanks to my watchers, you lovely people! :hug:
I feel like I should do something for you guys, so, if you've read this far, note me a DLR suggestion and say that you watch me somewhere in the message. The first fifteen will get a journal feature! (three journals with five deviants each, or five with three each? Let me know in the comments below!)

  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Mumford & Sons
  • Reading: 'A Game of Thrones' by George R.R. Martin
  • Watching: Friends
  • Eating: Chocolate
  • Drinking: Tea
