Tis the last rose of summer
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone;
No flower of her kindred,
No rosebud is nigh,
To reflect back her blushes,
And give sigh for sigh. - Thomas Moore, the Last Rose of Summer
I'm a writer and artist who usually has better luck sticking to coloring books and reading, but that doesn't stop me from trying to do the very best I can with my passions!
What You Should Expect
If I Watch you, I'm likely to partially stalk your gallery too.
If I favorite your work, it's because I think you did spectacular, even if I don't outright say it.
If I comment on your work, it means that I have done the impossible in finding the words to tell you why it's brilliant.
I appreciate each of my watchers and every last favorite and comment! well, not so much the trolls, you understand.
I may not be the most consistent of people, but never take that to assume I'm abandoning something. My work takes time.
I love conversations! And despite if it takes me a while to get back to you, I'm not done talking, I assure you.
What You Never Wanted To Know About Me
I play the violin and sing. There's also piano lessons somewhere in there, but...bleh.
I can't drive, but if I could, I'd drive a navy blue corvette with a hard top and ivory leather seats.
I read a lot, that's where I've learned most of my writing skills.
I fangirl a lot, especially over The Elder Scrolls, Marvel, Doctor Who, and The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. Don't diss my sci-fi/fantasy.
C. S. Lewis is my favorite writer of nonfiction (and Narnia!) and J. R. R. Tolkien is my favorite fiction writer. Everyone else falls after them.
If I had a favorite constellation, it'd be Dephinus, the Dolphin, because I love dolphins.
Leara is pronounced Lee-air-uh. I spent over an hour tracing the real name Leara's possible origins and have since decided that it'd mean Light of the Sea.
I don't think so...oh!
...feel free to send me a note anytime or browse my gallery!
