Dear Journal,
Unfortunately, I haven't had time to do any writing in the past month...there has been much to do and no time to do it in.  Thankfully, EVERYTHING seems to be done now...it feels really strange.  I don't know if I like it, and my mind is already buzzing with new ideas for future projects.

So, I was fascinated by creating one, and as I explored this idea, I did stray from unicorn mythology quite a bit.  Unicorns were deadly, but still looked beautiful.  My unicorn, however, was...well...what I call a Demon Unicorn.  At first, the horn was inspired by a rhinocero…
