Hi all:) Thanks for checking out the profile! I exchange Llamas and +Watch =)

Writing is my true love, whilst art is merely my lover < story of my life! While most of what's here on dA is art, I've been creating stories since before I learned how to write. In 2006 I began working on an original novel...which has since grown to a five-book series, all at various stages of completion. I create the characters, the worlds, the stories, and do a small amount of illustration, portraiture mostly, and am lucky enough to have a partner in crime who does all the remaining illustration.

I encourage you to go meet my baby, Little Miss MaGoo, the most precious kitty ever. Ever. EVER. E.V.E.R. Check her out in my gallery and fall in love >> kezulos.deviantart.com/gallery…

To end this awkwardly written biography, I'll just say that people without imaginations are some of the saddest bunch around. It sticks to em like a fat leech on their mouths; you can't help but look and think, 'Ew, oh, poor bastards!'

Well I think most of you know I've been working on a multi-book series since 2006, be it from my whining on this journal here of the various woes or from reading my biography section.  This tiny spark of creativity, consisting of perhaps three pages of a subordinate soldier giving her superior some snark, grew...to say the least.

As of this morning I had four books in-progress, and notes for a fifth and sixth.  Furthermore, between my co-illustrator, S.C. Scott, and I, we have easily three-hundred or so sketches, drawings, and paintings, be it in traditional or digital format, the majority of which are still in-progress.

So, yeah, suffice to say said tiny spark of creativity grew...first to
a flame, from a flame to a blaze, and from a blaze to the full-on raging inferno it's become today.

Point here is, I wasn't certain if I'd ever get to the point I could say this:

The first draft of the first book is COMPLETE.


Now, when I say 'first draft' here, that's not to say it's not been edited for content or anything.  Believe me, it has.  This wasn't supposed to be a series, but as the story became a behemoth, I had to split it up.  I spent countless hours collating what information was where, shifting events, creating and writing new chapters only to cut them in part or entirely, dealing with nigh-impossible timeline restrictions within this world I've created, and so on and on and bloody on.  I mean, I'm talking about nine years work here, guys XD

So these twenty-seven chapters, totaling an extremely modest 63k and change words, which make up this 'first draft', heh, well, I have been over each and every word no less than thirty or forty plus times apiece.  Would I send it out for an agent review today?  No, and that's why I'll call it a draft.  But it's really close, really damn close.

Anyhow, thanks for all y'all's ears (or eyes, rather).  The second book is ATM far longer, but I'll be diving into a massive edit session with it soon.

Otherwise I just want to mention how much I appreciate my ex's help.  In particular, his no-nonsense way of telling me when I'm being a fuckin loon and his donations to this series, those being 1) a seriously complex, nasty character (who unfortunately isn't around until book II), and 2) the co-writing genius he applied when we wrote Chapter VII together, which, imho, is an incredible work of storytelling.

Now, excuse me while I have a smoke. I think I deserve it.

THANK YOU FOR THE LLAMA BADGE! Although I haven't been on DA por ages, so by this point I've completely forgotten what they do. I do remember always wanting one, though. Either way, thank you so much!
