DA has so many wonderfully talented writers and artists in the community. Some are well known, others not so much. Each week, I feature several on my front page boxes, hoping they can bask in the glow of the spotlight for a bit. The topics and genres vary, but each are gems in their own right.
Here are this week's picks!
National Poem Writing Month
Each week I will be featuring a few writers that I have taken a particular shine to. Some may be well known, others, more obscure. This week highlights NaPoWriMo

While dogs may be a man's best friends- Cats will always be the masters of my heart. under dechobekSo perfectly shot, this curious kitten makes you wonder what it sees, and if we would see the same thing.Mischief StygmaThis is an enigma and makes one think of silent anticipation. The snow always provides such a hush, and the quiet way both animals are resting adds to it. And yet... the cat's eyes. They speak of something more... something waiting to strike, that perhaps it's not as innocent as the pose makes you think. It adds such a contrast not only to the mood, but also to the colour palette used. Brilliantly done.Let me in LilForgottenAngelSimply adorable, how can you not submit to what the title requests?
Please stop by their galleries and take a look at what else they have to offer.
My thanks to the lovely writers and artists who have provided us with such gems.
And if you know of someone who deserves the spotlight, please let me know!
