Hey Desiree! How have you been? How is school going?

:-) Désirée Dippenaar replies: "Hello!! Sorry for the late-late-late reply (and for being absent from your page for ages 8 )!
Uni is keeping me really really busy, but I’m enjoying it most of the time. Only trouble is homesickness sometimes on weekends when I’m alone; I just recently discovered that I’m absolutely no good at living on my own lol~

And how have you been?? I’ll have holidays soon, and though I have to study for exams I’m sure I’ll manage to pass by and read once in a while (when I’m in reach of internet haha)"

That’s ok! I’m lucky in that I have lots of free time at the moment, so I can bug everyone on elfwood 1. Are you almost done exams for the semester? I know exactly what you mean - I’m rubbish at living on my own ... perhaps why I’m taking so long to move out 12 and I’ve also got to find a place that allows big dogs 10 Do you get to go home for the holidays?

I’m doing alright ... even though I’m not working as much as in the summer I’m still finding lots to occupy my time, haven’t gotten bored of it yet! 1 But the writing has been suffering a bit these last weeks since I finished nano ... I just can’t seem to buckle down and write anything worth reading 1 But that will come in time, my muses are just a bit burnt out of creative ideas.

Merry Christmas Desiree and I hope you have a happy new years too!

:-) Désirée Dippenaar replies: "Thank you! And sorry for the late late late reply! I haven’t been on Elfwood for ages 8 Haven’t written anything for ages 8 Haven’t read anything for ages 8 except homework 8 lol.

How are youuu? Are your muses back to work? I need to kick mine back into action! 14"

I was wondering, will you ever put up the old version of Love Your Enemies? And it not here, how about Deviantart? It’s such an awesome story and I really want to read the whole thing again.

:-) Désirée Dippenaar replies: "Hm, I could!! I realise that which I have here is extremely fragmentary. And btw, did you prefer the old version? It’s interesting, because I keep thinking the new one should be better but then I’m also scared it might be a deprovement rather than improvement! 14

Thanks for suggesting though! I don’t really like the old version anymore personally (I find too many gaps and jumps and uncomfortable errors), BUT if I do have the old version somewhere still (thing is I’m not sure, because my old computer crashed last summer and I might only have half of the old version on the new computer), I WILL post it either here or on DeviantArt or Fictionpress or somewhere.

I’m really glad you like it so much! Thank you! 2"

The story itself is marvelous, but I do like the improvements in the new version. Longer and more descriptive! AAAH YAY!! AWESOME!! Please post a link when it’s up!

Hi Desiree! How’s school going? Are you on your summer vacation right now?
26 Dec 2010:-) Lindsay Verde
Hey Desiree, hoping you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!

:-) Désirée Dippenaar replies: "Hi Lindsay!! Sorry I’ve been so uncommunicable for ages and ages and never replying anything! :/ I’m not on Elfwood so much anymore, because I’ve been writing a ton of non-fantasy poetry which doesn’t exactly go on here... so it’s all on my deviantArt account instead lol. I really haven’t been on here for ages! xD
And how are you?"

:-) Désirée Dippenaar replies: "Hello! Sure I remember you! And I’m glad you still like my writing! ^^ I don’t really sell anything yet. I haven’t been on Elfwood for a while either actually. xD I’ve been writing non-fantasy things, and putting them on another site."
