I Have HopeI have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have to remember to breathe every time those words come, I dont want to believe it. I still cant believe it. I remember the first time my counselor looked at me and told me that my depression and anxiety might be something more. Great, I thought, What could possibly be worse than this?

Advice to NereidaYou can not save the ocean from drowning, he told me, because it is always drowning. Irrevocably. It's something you can't change, nor do you try to. He explained that there are some things you don't try to change about yourself, but there are other things you rip from the base of your spine. You place love in between vertebrae because a good foundation is everything and nothing is stronger than the love for your daughter. You take out small-mindedness and remember that every opportunity is like a flower, dormant until the sunshine entices it open.

I'm a contributor at CRLiterature where I help approve news submitted to the group and do other secrety things.
Expose-Lit is your lifeline in the lit labyrinth! The group is here to help every type of writer find their place in the dA lit community. I, along with a great string of wonderful people, will be posting articles to help you find that place!
Over at LITplease I manage and update the Community Portal which is a sister journal to my own news article, Love dA Lit. I'm always open to suggestions to put in the journal and news article!
I run and update theWrittenRevolution's Literature News journal! I also help out with their affiliates feature as well.
As an assistant at WordWars I do things to help thorns and GrimFace242 do Word War related things and let them know they're fantastic and stuff.
I'm one of the coordinators for the December Form Challenge [and all other group-related projects]! ProjectDFC is the headquarters for it all.
I'm a supplier at Authors-Club which means I supply information [top secret information] and do back room things.
TheFulkrum [the founder] says I'm to help with literature related things at dALinkSystem [which I love!]. You don't refuse The Godfather. Besides, linking is wonderful!

Reasons To Love dA Lit Community
Reasons to Love dA's Lit Community: Part 1Over a month ago I asked "Why do you love dA's Literature Community?" and I received an amazing response, with well over 60 participants! For the sake of length I'll be splitting this article into two parts, with the prize winners at the end of the second article which will be posted tomorrow!
Reasons to Love dA's Lit Community: Part 2This is the second half of my Reasons to Love dA's Literature Community. If you have no idea what is going on this explains it a bit more. ♥
In Search of a New LeaderI'm looking for someone that I can turn the group over to. I haven't been very active as a founder and recently I have been forgetting to go through submissions. For the past year, this group was the only reason that I even got on DA, but now I just don't get on at all.
I'm looking for someone who gets on regularly and is willing to manage the group. It's honestly not too difficult of a task, you just need to care about it. I will give full control to whoever takes over. You can do what you want with the group.
I'll give a week for people to respond. Just tell me how active you are on DA and I will decide based on who I think will take the most care of the group.
In the event no one wants to be the new founder, I will change the submission policy so that nothing needs to be approved and just let the group idle. I might check in once a month or so.
