I`m joining this.

...because I love to write -- it`s my vice. I`ve been writing all my life. But, I believe I`ve got much to learn. Even though I don`t win this, might you grace me with critique?

Please&thankyou,
Isabel.

If you send me a note once I'm done judging, I'll see what I can do... I'm not that great at critique tbh, but it's something I need to learn..

I know, I`ve past the judging date.
But, I`ve had a lot going on. But I still wish you the best for judging.

Btw, tbh?

I'm moving out to go to university, so I'm moving like, 3 hours away, in with a bunch of people I don't know, so I'll have to dedicate all my time getting to know people, and then my course will start, and... oh god, the thought of it's slightly terrifying lol.

ooh, yeah. I wanna try this. hopefully i can get a subscription. pop-ups suck on dA. Heaven's the easiest, since with Time I might rant on for hours and not make any sense to anyone. :shrug: :) :thumbsup:

I'm trying now to take part for the first time. Can you please tell me exactly how to do this (where to send works and so on) in style 'step by step'? Sorry for troubling you with this :)
Reply
:iconalmalobana:
almalobana Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2008   Writer
Basically, you submit the entry as a deviation on dA,then you copy the link from the address bar and paste it into a note which you then send to me, =almalobana

Preferably with 'Contest entry - #theme#' in the subject bar.

OK?

Time? Heaven? Both such infamous topics, and so easy to offend people with. I think I'll try it.

I don't think people are offended with it, unless you say 'heaven doesn't exist.' otherwise, people are pretty open about others' interpretations. my favorite interpretation of heaven is that everyone gets their own slushy machine.

Oh yes, that is true. And I'd like to think I'd get a Slushy Machine if I go there.

does sapphire and gold count? ;) a mansion and streets of gold. I'm just sayin'. there are benefits. and a slushy machine would rock, too.
