Review Corner

"DrippingWords, otherwise known as Caitlan, is a gorgeous soul with a knack for bringing real life into the bulk of her poetry. With her hands in almost every aspect of the dA community in general--from a lovely suggestion on the notes system to book covers and group participation--Caitlan is bound to steal your heart with her writing and keep you coming back for her personality. She's also just started putting up her news article, Let's Talk Writing, again, featuring some of the most prominent names in the literature community. You're sure to fall in love with DrippingWords gallery, so go give it a thorough look-through!"

"Caitlan (DrippingWords), never ever stop writing. Every single time I open up one of your new uploads I just know I'll be blown away by your imagery, or the pure heartache in your words. You'll never know how much trouble I had picking out that one single piece of yours to feature, that's how great you are. Like I said before, if I could favourite you I would, and so should many, many others."

"DrippingWords has been a constant supporter of a lot of initiatives within the community, most notably the now defunct DailyLitDeviations and the newly created DailyLitRecognition. I don't even know how many years she's been dedicated to helping the crew there bring great literature to the forefront, but I do know that I enjoyed working with her when I was helping over there. She's patient, intelligent, helpful, and full of great ideas. This community needs a lot more people who are willing to be the helpers, in my opinion. We could all take a leaf out of Cait's book."

"DrippingWords, Caitlan, I must say I'm thrilled you're back and writing again. You are a truly wonderful person, an absolutely fantastic asset to this community and an inspiration to me in all facets of my deviantART life. Please, please don't ever stop being your amazing self because you inspire more than you know and I love you. :heart:"

Another year has come and gone, and it's time to reset once again. Even though, in the words of Hank Green, "the orbit of the Earth is an ellipse; there's no point on it that is the beginning of has nothing to do with the Earth's year... The perils of living in a global culture. We don't get to ignore all of the seemingly fundamental things that are actually totally arbitrary and just made up."

//tl;dr it's actually silly if you think about it

I've come to dislike the word resolution. It's a very hollow word, and to me, rings more of empty promises than new beginnings. Instead of making resolutions that will never be kept, I've decided to make a Determination List: things that I want to do, and so will make happen.

:bulletyellow: Write Every Day - I have an alarm set to remind me to write
:bulletorange: Get Better at Drawing - I bought a moleskin notebook where I can doodle and sketch in every day
:bulletyellow: Go Outside - I have a few days a week set aside to go in public and get better at being social, period
:bulletorange: Become Healthier - I will exercise more frequently as part of RunWithDan

They're just simple goals, but because I've actually made a way for them to happen, I have more of a chance of following through with them. It's definitely made me feel more accomplished, even though it's still January, and I think that's the most important thing.

The January Book Club Mid-Month Check In!
January Book Club: DAWN: Mid-Month Check-InHello, readers! I hope you've been enjoying one of my favorite hard sci fi novels, DAWN by Octavia E. Butler!  By this point you have read through Parts I and II, and we will be discussing the novel up to (but not including) Part III: Nursery.
One of the first things that I'd like to discuss -- and that I don't think we can NOT discuss -- is the topic of race in DAWN. DAWN was written by an African American woman, and the main character, we find out in chapter one, is dark-skinned. And yet, the cover on the 1987 first edition depicts two white women. Here are the U.S. Covers for the first book, over the years.
Left to right: 1987 hard cover (first edition), 1988 paperback, 1998 paperback, 2012 ebook edition
