I would absolutely adore a Premium Membership to further myself and artists I love and respect.
Would do a feature in my journal on donors and what they do for DeviantArt.
Will write a 5,000 word extract (fiction) on the subject of your choosing!

You must be logged in to donate.
No one has donated yet. Be the first!
When I was younger, one of the biggest problems I had was dealing with the fear of change.
There is no doubt in my mind that I am no longer the girl who used to write about finding her salvation in the idea of marrying a Prince Charming to settle down early with. There is a difference between dependence on these romantic ideals, and weaving in the romantic into the everyday. I have certainly adapted.
I am no longer a slave to my heart, in the sense that I am hopeless to its whimsy. I am now much stronger than that, in that I am at one with my inner whimsy, rather than contesting it. The whimsy and I know how to work in a cynic's world.
I am no longer as delicate as spun sugar, in the sense that my core has been contested, and I fought to strengthen that core. 
I am no longer a slave to the belief that it is me that needs to change, in order to accommodate to that world. It is not my whimsy that is wrong, but that something so emotionally raw and pure cannot survive such normalised brutality is wrong.
I was no longer afraid to change. And then everything changed.

I am no longer the cleric, devoting herself to an endless crusade of a fallen god.
I have gone rogue, to both the life I constructed around myself last year, and indeed my past self.
I have changed.
Thank goodness, I've changed.
Thank goodness I went rogue to the haven on the hillside.

To the core, I am the same. The dreamy, the whimsical, the eternally writing, the romantic, the linguist.
By throwing myself into the throes of chaos, I have found myself again, and the inner monologue that guides me home.
I am stronger.
