Let's Flip This Shi...Stuff

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 20, 2014, 9:50 AM

I, like many around the community, have participated in the Ask Me Anything journals.  And honestly, they're awesome fun.  My favorite subject is me, so I totally welcomed the journal, but I've noticed one major flaw with it.

It only gets you to know me better.  And maybe I'd like to know you better.

So I've devised a plan.  It's a simple plan.  I mean, seriously, it can't get much simpler than this.  A monkey could do it.  Like one of those dumb monkeys, not the kind they send into space.

If you comment on this journal, I'm going to ask you a random question that you have to answer.  See.  Simple!

As an aside, I'm also going to be away from the civilized world for a few days for my yearly escape at Thanksgiving.  But I'm leaving a day earlier this year.  We're heading north on Wednesday and I won't be back til Sunday.  :la: 

There will be food, the Princess, fires, drinking, Jarod, Jesse, the Aunt and Uncle, fires, bars, lake walking, fires, definite shenanigans and did I mention fires?  :eager:  These next couple days cannot go fast enough.

Up until Tuesday night, I'll be responding but after that, you'll just have to wait until I return and hopefully am not hungover because that was a thing and it was bad and I didn't get out of bed for a day. 

So if we don't talk til I'm back, ta! And have a lovely holiday (if you're in the States, if you're not, I will eat your share of the turkey dinner) and hopefully I'll have snow pictures when I return.  If not, I'll at least have bare tree pictures.  :giggle:

Grim, out.

It seems like this year is just passing us by so quickly and it's hard to play catch up with everything that's going on.  Hopefully you've all are having an easier time of staying tuned in than I am.  October was a pretty active month with lots of contests running and new ones being announced.  Keep in mind that you're allowed to publish your journals through CRLiterature or submit to our News Articles Folder.  It gets more attention to your project AND helps CRLiterature continue to be the hub for all things literature in the community.

If you hadn't noticed, we've also welcomed SingingFlames to the Lit CV team.  So she's handling Fan Fiction as well as Literature.  Be sure to check out her DD Suggestion Guidelines.  Now, let's see all the awesome things that were going on in October and some that are running through November.

Contests, Prompts & Challenges

General News & Happenings

Interviews and Features

Literature Forum Happenings

And as always, be sure to stay in touch with your Literature CVs, and suggest DDs when you find something remarkably awesome.  We're also here if you've got dA related questions or need assistance.

It's Been A Little While

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 9:23 AM

You know...since I've posted a personal journal and not something for a group.  I've also been a little quiet this week.  My week didn't start out too well.

My baby boy.  My mush.  My shadow.  My monster.  My fatty.  My baba.  My most loyal companion, Loki, went to sleep Monday night and didn't wake up Tuesday morning.  We'd just had him to the vet because he'd been acting oddly and were told that he was on his way out.  So we expected this.  We were just hoping to have a bit more time with him.  Time for more snuggles and nose kisses.  Morning face licks and evening jail breaks.  I will miss the permanent loaner dog more than probably any of my other dogs that are up on the mantle.  He was the dog that I was asked to watch while his mommy and daddy went on vacation.  They never came back for him.  So I just adopted him into the family.  He was the bestest and most loyal family member ever. 

Loki by GrimFace242

And if that's not enough, I get a phone call Tuesday afternoon from my brother.  Our dad's in the hospital.  Apparently he had a heart attack or something like that.  I know I should feel something here, but I don't.  And that kinda bothers me.  So much so I actually called in an emergency appointment with the shrink to try and get my head straight. 

For those of you not in the loop, my dad and I aren't close.  We never will be.  But I still have this thing inside me that tells me I should do something here.  He's passed messages along that he'd like me to visit, but I haven't yet.  Oddly, I'm not sure I'll regret not going if he ends up dying.  How horrible is that?

So if I'm a little quiet over the next couple days or week, it's just because I've got a lot going on and I'm trying to make peace in my head (which is never an easy thing to do, even under the best circumstances).


Grim out.
