So I have been off of this site for like, two years or something obscene like that. In that time, I have graduated from college, found my passion in life, gotten a taste of reality, completely broken down, picked myself up again, and figured out the definition of resilience in a very personal and painful way. I know, that's a lot. But now I feel like I am in a place where I can once again benefit the amateur writing community, and I want to get back into writing a lot more myself. So here I am, back in action and ready to don my armor and fight the good fight, or whatever this may be. So, to all of those whom I have not been here in support of for a very long time, my deepest apologies for leaving both unexpectedly and unannounced. That was both unfair and definitely not classy. I will strive for more class in the future, I promise. And for the rest of you, those who have come into your own since the beginning of my unfortunate absence, I applaud you! Keep creating, never stop, and hopefully one day we will all learn how to truly capture ourselves on a piece of blank white paper. As always, peace to you all and I hope to hear from anyone and everyone in the near future.

So, in this small box I am supposed to let the world of DeviantArt know everything about who I am as a person. That seems slightly unnecesary, but I will humor you DeviantArt...So, who is the figure that goes under the name Noah? Well, first and foremost I am a musician. Music encompasses every portion of my life. I am a vocalist, and I will be until the day I die. That is the truth of it. The other thing I will be until the day I die is a writer and a student. I am a writer of emotion, and I am a student of life. I truly believe that these two things go hand in hand. Every time you write something you draw upon something deep down inside, hidden emotions that you often cannot name, and you pour them onto your paper of choice. But it goes beyond this. Every time a writer puts something on paper they are giving away a small piece of themselves. They are giving you a window, albeit a very clouded, dirty, and small window, into their own lives and thoughts. Those are my thoughts on writing. What do they tell you about me?

Current Residence: Luther College

Hey! I wanted to invite you to apply to the group #EliteLiterature. They're looking for more members and asked their current members to invite people and I thought of you. :)

Full disclosure, yeah, there IS a contest for it, and whoever refers the most people to the group gets a 3-month membership, but if you want, you don't have to mention it was me who sent you. I still think you should join. :)

You can find out more here: [link]

Why thank you :) I don't write very often unfortunately...

You have a very distinct writing style, it is quite evocative. I wasn't really feeling the first verse of the poem, but the second verse really kicked it in and it continued well from there. You should take a look at :icontalentedwritersguild:

I'm one of the admins and judges there and we do our best to collect and admit quality literature. I'd be interested to see what the other judges think of your style.
