A not so monthly feature.I've been so busy. The people who've been watching me for awhile probably know that each month I try to do a feature of the wonderful art I've found.....and you may also know I havn't done that lately. I've been
procrastinatingso swamped with school work, administrating groups, and trying to have a social life that I havn't been searching for new art from people who I havn't already featured. It makes me wonder if I should keep doing these features.

Admin NeededEdit: We already have seen an improvement here in the group. ~LunaraFoxAngel has done some amazing work voting on submissions and soon =deinktvis and *TerraRavenBearheart will be joining us as well. I won't be accepting any more requests for people to join as admins for the time being, but as the group grows we'll need more help.
If anyone is interested in admin positions, please note the group or myself.
Things I'm looking for in Admin:
You must be frequently online.
You must have knowladge of Paganism. Note, it's very hard for me to determin the amount of knowladge you have on Paganism if you've just joined the group or are not a frequent submitter. If you are also someone who I've had to frequently decline work because it was not Pagan in the last six months, then you will not be accepted.
You do not need knowladge of deviantart's group system. If you don't know how the system works, I can teach you.
Ask a character something!Through this journal, you're getting the chance to have a conversation with any of the characters. You can ask them anything you like, or just bring up idle conversation. They might even respond back. Just make it clear on who you're speaking to.
Rain, don't jump out of bed and murder me for posting this without asking I'm just terriably bored and it's just a bit of harmless fun! Also, does this skin appear normal for you?
Action vs. Character DevelopmentIt has become a reoccuring thing in young adult books to have far more action, rather than character development. Books such as these tend to sell better to teens, earning young adult an infamous name for being fast paced and underdeveloped. It also can be a challange for young adult authors to publish a book which does not have the higher ratio of action to character development. Authors find themselves changing their works of literature to suit what the publishers want out of books. This keeps young adult books stuck in it's infamous circle of infamy and publishers profit.
When reading a book, do you perfer more action than character development, even amounts, or more character development than action?
How well does Maiden of Woodland Secrets fit your desired ratio between these two things?
Are the better authors those which make a profit from fitting the publishers expectations, or are the better authors those who write from the heart and soul y
PredictionsWe all have probably tried to predict what happens next in a movie, book, video game, or anything else that has a story. Not only can predicting be fun, but it can also provide the author with good feedback. Readers predictions can help an author to know if they walk the fine line of good forshadowing which sits between the overly obvious and the too obscure.
Do you have any predictions for MOWs? Feel free to answer even if you are only on the first chapter, just remember that there may be book one spoilers in the comments. I also ask that you do not specifically tell a person if their book one prediction is correct, unless they ask for it.
I can not make any predictions as that would give away book two.
Under loved mythological creatures: SelkiesAs promised (though a few days late) I've created a news article featuring selkies, one of the many under-loved mythological creatures which I plan on helping expose other people to.
A bit about selkies:
The selkie is a water creature by nature, originating in the Icelandic and Scottish folklore and a possible cousin to the mermaid. They are generally in the form of a seal, but have the ability to shed their seal skin and become human for a short while. Often time in folklore, a man steals the skin of a selkie woman and forces her to become his wife, or a human woman dissatisfied with her love life seeks a selkie male. Such stories are often tragic in nature.

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
