Germany
My mother tongue is German, but the language of my soul is English. It took me some time to realize this, mind you, but by now I write in English more often than in German. My theory is that writing in a foreign language lets you skip emotional barriers that stop you from writing freely.

Poetry is the art form that contains most of my true self, as it often serves as an emotional outlet or a tool to sort through my thoughts. I received a DD and a DLD on "Old Hands" and a DLD on my poem “Earth”. (I am obviously very proud of those. ;P)

On the other hand I love the advantages of longer prose, as it allows me to unfold complex ideas and concepts into multiple directions. Currently I am working on finishing my fanfiction “The Archive” and writing my first novel “Hunting Deer”.

I love all kinds of feedback on my work! :heart:


I also have a degree in design of information and have been working as information designer for more than three years now, so you might as well call me a professional in design and interfaces. So in case I faved your picture, know that a designer did. ;)


If you would like to thank me for a :star: please be so kind and add the link to your deviation. If I have the time I often like to have a second look to tell you why I faved them. :)

Genießen kann nur, wer Nüsse mag,

You are in a crisis and people really want to support you – but how the hell are they supposed to do that?

Treat others like you want to be treated sound like a good idea. But the truth is some people want to talk, while others just want to be hugged. Some want to be left alone, while others need you to walk after them. Some people even have special words they use when they really urgently need help. I keep being amazed by the variety of crisis plans and how people want to be supported.

I didn't make it to another set of three, but here is one last crisis plan I would like to share with you:

Featherdream's Crisis Plan:

How to undig the hole I've dugI do not lose sleep at night because I'm too excited.
Dreams of puppies and kittens are for the lucky ones; Not for me.
I lay awake from the emptiness in my chest
too fearful to slip into unconsciousness, Where the Kittens turned to lions and the puppies turned to wolves and tear my heart and soul out piece by piece.
Depression lurks in my shadows, and only two people can possible lull me back to sleep, ironically with the first name starting with the letter A.
Maybe because they're my Plan A (and B, and C, and Y and Z....)
i. Just hold me.
       I'll resist, I'll push you away, but I guarantee I need your love on these nights more than ever.
ii. Just Listen
       I can't feel anything, and when I cry please do not tell me you understand. Just listen. Promise me you'll stay. Promise you'll stay the night, and I'll let you leave within the hour.
iii. Piece me back together
        List the reasons why you're here. Tell me why



What's this all about?


camelopardalisinblue wrote the first crisis plan: Tips on Getting Me Through a Crisis. It did not only inspire me to write my own, but it also made me think it would be wonderful if everybody would write such a crisis plan, a sort of instruction manual how to treat each individual if he/ she is sad.


So what's this good for?


Those crisis plans are supposed to help us help each other. All your friends will be able to support you better with the help of your crisis plan - regardless of whether you are in a fully grown catastrophe or just a bad mood. And if you know what you need, it will also be easier to ask others for it.


I won't be doing any more features for this project, but I'd again like to thank anyone who participated and supported this project. :heart:

I have to thank you for joining TheWritePlace, my new venture, my new baby :giggle: I am really REALLY excited about it. Like, capital letters excited. (I’m trying to tone it down). I want this group to be useful and accessible to all so if you have feedback on how to make it better feel free to let us know. Our chatroom (of the same name) will be launching properly soon, in the meantime enjoy the group and I hope it helps you :rose:
