It's mostly filled with Literature.

The photos in my gallery are purely to give it a bit of colour. While I appreciate photography as an art form, I wouldn't consider my "photography" to be art.

If you are able to give me any advice or tips on how to improve on my writing then that would be lovely.
Thank you.



About Me

I haven't been particularly active for many months but I'm hoping to change that. Unfortunately, all of my real life friends that I originally joined with have left deviantArt. That knowledge left me feeling despondent, especially when I became close with other members and they would deactivate, too.
Combine the loss of friends with my personal issues, like my depression and inability to move forward with my life, I began to withdraw into myself. It took me a couple of years of counselling before I learnt to like myself.

During these six months, I've been pottering about on dA but it's only recently that I decided to get back on track. Creating journal features have given me a new sense of vigour to get out of my comfort zone and really get involved in what's going on around deviantArt. This doesn't necessarily mean I'll upload artwork on a regular basis; I'm a firm believer of balancing quality with quantity and I don't think I'm up to that standard.
I am, however, going to be an active member and friend. I've got a lot of journal features, projects and ideas that I want to share with everyone. I'm hoping that some of us might even collaborate or do some art trades!

Thank You

And so I just wanted to thank you for all the encouragement, favourites, comments, features and watches you guys have given me over the years.
I'm so happy to be a member of a site that allows us to share our art and get to know one another. When I joined this site, I honestly didn't expect comments on my work; I signed up to dA because it was another way for me to talk to my friends. But then I met all of you guys and began to really enjoy spending my time on here.
This leads me onto...

Tell Me About Yourself

Since I've been out of touch, I would like to know more about you guys. You can either write a journal post in response, involving your own watchers and friends in the process, or you can leave a comment.

To get the ball rolling, I'll start:

I'm Izzy and am 22 years old. At the moment, I work in a restaurant within a garden centre and am extremely happy to be working there. I love to write, particularly fantasy stories, and am hoping to become a librarian or work in a bookshop. Occasionally I think about life as an author but I'm aware it's incredibly hard work and can involve a hectic schedule.
I can draw as long as I have a reference but I do find it stressful, particularly if the work is challenging.

Let me know your name, age, your favourite medium to work with and what your aspirations are for the future, whether it's on deviantArt or in real life.

I'm Izzy and for the past year or so, I've not been that active. I hope to change that and I really want to get involved in the community again.

Although I enjoy drawing, I'm not very good at it and am currently learning the basics. I wouldn't want to inflict my drawings on people so I'm not going to upload them on here. My "photography" is pretty bad, too. I've only put some photos up to give my gallery a bit of colour since it's full of literature.

I write fiction and poetry and focus on the fantasy and romance genres. I love to read fantasy, romance and horror.

Ballerina in the Glass Music Box (FFM Day 2)    They had preserved her in a glass box.
    Her father had been due to entertain clients at the circus. Naturally, when she wished to join them, he relented. It turned out, however, that the gypsies wouldn’t allow her entry into the circus top.
    Left with a chaperone, she talked with the gypsies. Upon their first meeting, she had asked the reason how it could be the longest running circus in history. In reply, they told her the only way to find out was to join them.
    A rich girl joining a gypsy circus. It was laughable. It was an idea.
    It had been her first, and last, act of rebellion.
    The lights dimmed: her audience had arrived.
    She knew what they would be thinking. Stunned by the aerialist who used her own hair as a ribbon, they wouldn’t be impressed with a simple slip of a girl wearing a woman’s costume. This particular circus was tailored f

Life Mate    Nora had been surprised when she found out that the inhabitants of this planet didn't have some sort of marriage ceremony. Åsh had told her that once lovers accepted and claimed each other as a life mate, it was considered to be stronger than human marriage ceremonies. As they couldn't decide what to do, Nora and Åsh decided to compromise and combine the two traditions. Nora got her big family gathering and Åsh got his vows.
    "Nora Wing, citizen of New London, section 6, of planet Earth, I claim you as my life mate."
    Now it was her turn. Nora took a deep breath and hoped she wouldn't make a mistake. If she did mispronounce his name, it would be considered an insult. "Åshlichtein Bjorkona Ýepsilon Psykeria, Lord of area KX-2081 of planet Nexon Zeblir, I claim you as my life mate." She heard Gabe, an old friend and trusted member of her crew, whistle. He had been teasing Nora about claiming he
Dreams of a PirateDream, little pirate.
Dragging the past in silence,
Chasing a lost childhood.
Stranded on your ship,
Without a crew.
From the shore, caught somewhere in time,
Solace seeks a dying man.
Your last words,
Caught in a scream in the wind.

Summer fruitThe summer fruit of her kiss,
blossoms into soft red petals
and deepens the kiss with her thorns.
I prick my tongue and bleed,
showing my devotion to her.
The ripened berries burst,
rouge and orange mingling onto the pallet.
It burns like acid,
fighting for survival.
Those passionate deep lips,
fall and freeze over my skin.
She loses the spring in her step,
and her green fingers hesitates to touch soil.
Back to hibernation,
where her dreams reflect reality.
Time turns back momentarily
and the cycle begins, bringing a new year.

As long as they're the chocolate kind.
I really like Maryland's Gooeys. Got any of them? I bought a pack yesterday but they didn't survive the night...
