A poem for my prospective readers

Do you dare take this book from the shelf?

Characters and their fursonas, one and the same

Could this work inform your sense of yourself?

Once you read of a wolf, Lauren’s the name

Wouldn’t it be fun to learn her story, just in case?

The first act beckons, and it’s yours to chase…


Send me a note if you'd like to read the latest manuscript draft for Transpecies! Approximately 25,000 words. Thoughtful critiques greatly appreciated. I'm in a writing + classes mode for now.

What's your interest level in reading Transpecies? 

8 deviants said 0/5 ... I'm not interested in reading the manuscript or book. It's not for me.
4 deviants said 4/5 ... This sounds like something I want to read and would likely enjoy. I'm not sure that I want to critique the rough drafts.
4 deviants said 5/5 ... I really want to start reading the manuscript as soon as I can. I'd seriously consider critiquing the rough drafts.
3 deviants said 3/5 ... I'm considering reading it out all on my own, based on only information from the author. I have a slightly positive impression so far.
1 deviant said 1/5 ... I just might want to read it in the future, under all the right circumstances.
No deviants said 2/5 ... With a recommendation from another reader or a friend's endorsement, I could be persuaded to give it a read.

This summer I will not be on DeviantArt as much as usual.  My academic studies at the intersection of the life sciences and engineering are going well, and I have recently achieved an important academic goal. I've also read twenty something books so far this year with the aim of improving my writing skills/talent further.  I'll be concentrating on engineering course work this summer so that I can later take an animation course or a few of them in the regular school year.  I'm also exploring the option of studying molecular modeling among other topics outside the core curriculum of my major.

My creative projects differ from cycle to cycle. Sometimes I am most interested in creating visual arts while at other times I'm most interested in writing. I think it will be a long time before I feel proficient enough at animation to produce a book trailer for my story titled "Transpecies."  I find producing quality poetry and prose for the story to be much easier than creating visual art of the same caliber.  Nevertheless, I am still pleased with my recent accomplishment of setting a new record for my most favorited deviation with the animation "Rainy Day."  Considering the great efficiency and rewards owed to the division of labor, I think it's most appropriate that I write while others draw so that each person can produce the highest quality work.  At the same time I'm just as much of an amateur at writing as I am at visual art for neither is my planned career.  As a bioengineer in training, I must prioritize my thorough engineering coursework this summer.  Though I will be available for anyone who wishes to reach out to me after having read my writing, I am going to de-emphasize my visual art for this summer season.  I still write in a journal nearly every day, so a bit of poetry might occur there and later be featured here on DeviantArt.

For anyone who wishes to give my prose writing a chance, the first act of my novel-to-be is still available upon request to interested readers.  My journal from November of last year has many details about this opportunity.   The 25,000 word document is about a third the length of a novel.  My current conditions are that a reader respond to the work within six weeks of receiving it while also respecting confidentiality with respect to my named authorship of the work and its content.

My visual art hiatus will last until my planned animation course this upcoming fall term.  I can still be conversant via notes for any writing related matters.  To my watchers, each of whom I am thankful for, have a wonderful summer season!

I am a writer, artist, and animator engaged in creative projects as an ongoing independent pursuit. I am seeking comments and critique on my latest works. I am currently seeking interested, critical readers for the most recent prose version of the first act of the novel-to-be titled "Transpecies," in which some cognitively enhanced animals seek sanctuary in a dangerous and uncertain future America. Contact me by note if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity. You can find animations, writing, and more through my gallery folders. The above depiction of my fursona is courtesy of jillustrations on tumblr.

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart 
also sorry for not talking much with you recently... :<
