Things are coming together with my working historical fiction fantasy, #TheBlackTideChronicles. 💀 With many captains in the list of leads, it's been an absolute challenge (and treat) designing a unique arc for each anti-hero of the story. There's been a lot of cutting, swapping, adding and weaving to make the world hopefully more enjoyable and relatable to the reader. At the end of it all, I've come to love each one of them for their unique features and flaws.
Here is a list of my leading characters set to appear in my treasure-hunt tale. 💀 Who are you excited to learn more about? I'll share a bit more in the comments below and in upcoming #novelupdate posts. Keep a weather eye! // ✒: @romantic.rover.x. // #romanticrover #dmpaulsen
because one should always sail under true colors.
The new styling of the creative journal is inspired by my fancy for the undiscovered and wonders undisclosed. My love for the sea, whether made most of salt or sand is the muse of my stories and scenes. I write for the curious contemplator and hopeless romantic, while providing a collaborative haven for fellow entrepreneurs with an appetite for adventure.
So, without further ado; I introduce to you the newest Romantic Rover journal by D.M. Paulsen. Here, you will find tales, poetry, and collaborations with the most creative individuals that cross my path. Along the way, you will uncover writing tips, inspiration and insight to help build stories of your own.
Hold fast and have heart; the world is ours for the taking with the quill as our wing.

Just in time for the holidays, I'm thrilled to announce that I've updated the Dramatic Pause Redbubble storefront with a couple more designs and poems. The new pieces included: Feathered Rover, Weigh Anchor, an Stormy Lover.
These designs are to be added to the existing collection of designs,
Stay Inspired and Pale Moon.
These poems are written for the hopeless romantic with the whimsical, wandering spirit. Heavily inspired by nautical and seaside themes, these poetic pieces make for a great gift for a dear friend or your dearly beloved over the holidays. Products range from poster prints, tapestries, tablet cases and clocks to tote bags, scarves, journals and duvets.

The dramatic pause journal has always been a pursuit of this passion, but as I dove into the social poets community, I found myself want to give back a little bit more creative inspiration with a more thematic message.
One of the greatest parts in meeting like minded writers though Instagram is having the opportunity to be in a community that inspires perspective and the creative play that my projects thrive on.
The updated look and feel of Dramatic Pause on Instagram is designed in hopes to evoke more inspiration by creating and atmosphere of nostalgia and curiosity. The film slides are a tribute to my passion for photography. The color blue is dedicated to the inspiration of the skies and the seas that often finds its way into my prose.
With these updates, readers can also expect a more regular feed on a daily basis, included a "word of the day" with the purpose to broaden the vocabulary of both readers and writers alike. The feed is also set to include more imagery to help inspires scenes, stories and poems for my followers. For readers who prefer to receive e-mail updates on a monthly basis, an e-newsletter has been created. Readers can subscribe on the bottom of the right-hand navigation pane of the Dramatic Pause Journal page.
Older original dp works will be shared interlaced with new works in the re-branded format for immersion and consistency's sake. Fans of specific works are invited to pin their favorite pieces from the original Dramatic Pause Pinterest board.
These changes may be minor to some, but a step up the ladder towards the stars, nonetheless. Be sure to subscribe to stay updated on all things Dramatic Pause! From monthly reads and updates on Black Tide Chronicles, to discounts to the RedBubble novelty store -- you won't want to miss out!
