Be Right BackHi everyone!
I just wanted to give you a heads-up on why I've been so quiet. I've been really slow to answer notes (which is unusual) and have not even really paid much attention to the groups. I spread myself too thin, and I need to take a step back.
Really, there are two reasons:
(1) I am working on my dissertation, and that has to be my top priority.
(2) I am really tired and burning out between all the projects and the dArama (both good and bad) that has been going on.
I know that a lot of the things that are happening in our community are really good.... for example, the mentoring projects have taken off, and at least 2 people have contacted me with ideas to expand them. I am excited about these ideas and WILL get back to you.... I just need a break first.
I miss doing features and interviews and want to pick them up again soon. Better yet, I love seeing YOUR features and reading YOUR interviews. This community has really taken a huge turn in supportin

Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest!What happened?
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest that was run through %Halloween-HQ! First, let us tell you exactly what happened.
The killer was the Queen of Hearts. Ruthless and cold, she set out to kill Prince Charming for repeatedly spurning her unwanted shows of affection. She used a thin knife and struck when the lights went out during the castle ball. Quickly realizing what she had done and that she had gotten the wrong victim, she fled across Fairyland, through the dark forest, and back to her own castle.
Well, we originally had 3 prizes: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place based on scores from the characters you visited. (You didn't know you were being scored, did you?) But, when we ended up with 825 participants, we figured we needed to up the prizes a bit, too. $Moonbeam13 over in Community Relations is a goddess, and she made the prizes even BIGGER!

I'll use a random number generator ( on this journals favourite list) and the winner will get one throw pillow of my artwork of their choice:

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l

FAQ: Where do I submit book covers?Hiya!
I've seen a few people lately asking where they should submit book covers when they are uploading them to dA. First, they should NOT be submitted to Digital Art > Photomanipulation unless they are simply the image (e.g. they do not have an author, title, etc.).
So, where do they go if they are actually book layouts (with author and title)?
You can submit them here: Designs & Interfaces > Editorial Design.
I hope that helps.
LithiumA single trickling rain drop
Like gossamer silk strands
Gliding along my third eye
Whispers wind's secret caress
I exhale. Lungs releasing-
Pressing translucent memories;
Fragment of a fragment
As water kisses rose petal,
Drifting down stream's curtain
Pretty little curtain.
Where the wizard lies.
He smiles up at me
With his monocled brow-
Sipping on warm tea
And fingers quacking casually
To the rhythm of his notes
This is a safe-zone. Free-zone.
Innocent eyes sparkle,
Imploring it to be true. I breathe.
Keep in Touch!
