What's up in the Lit Community?

Being devious: A Guide to the dA Lit CommunityI've been asked frequently, in the last few weeks, by some new members in the lit community about exactly HOW they can hit the ground running in terms of their activity on dA. It goes beyond just submitting great pieces and hoping for the best. I came across various methods over these 8 years I've been around, and I wish I had been told a lot of these things when I first started. I discovered a lot of things by trial and error. So, I figure it would be a nice gesture to help out some of the deviants who have been inquiring about what course of action to take now that they are here. Here are some useful articles that will probably say most of the things I'm going to:
 These two articles are more in-depth, so I would highly suggest taking a look here.
As for my own personal experiences, here are some ways of getting yourself out there.
1. Comment, comment, comment.
Maybe even a critique or two, if you're feeling daring. Think of the


ABC's of Lit. Forms 'S'The aim of this project is to serve as a single collaborative collection of literature forms. The project can focus mainly on poetry forms, but can also include types of prose (examples: non-fiction, six word stories)! La la la la Since this project is about all of the writers on dA, that is where the community comes in. I am constantly needing more forms to add to the list. So please take the time to fill out a quick google survey, letting me know what forms you wish to see in this project as well as as how YOU would define it (if you choose). Feel free to include examples from dA as well, if you have any.
:dalove: This will be continuously updated as more come along, so stay tuned!
Thank you to those who have taken the time to send in something for the Google Survey, along with instructions and tidbits. They were very helpful. :heart: 


Updates from LadyLincoln

December Seasons: True GiftsWelcome to December!
During the holiday season, I think often of what its true meaning should be. I read a status recently about the disgusting commercialism of this season. It stung me, because I knew how very accurate it was. It did not sting because of the context of the message, but rather because I longed to believe there was something left of true selflessness somewhere in this maddening world – filled with greedy souls who seemed to care only for themselves.
In recent months, my fears were proven right time and time again. I felt so many were ignoring their blessings: taking for granted what they had, not taking any time to say: ‘thank you,’ and worse still – mistreating their loved ones. I was disheartened by it, especially with the closeness of the “giving” season – starting to feel trapped within the confines of negativity that I sought to break free of. I did not wish to be a part of a society that seemed to care more about what thos
The Ladies of Lit: Volume XLVIIIWelcome to volume forty-eight my Literature series, The Ladies of Lit!
The premise here is simple. Below you will find an assortment of Literature features from a selection of female deviants here on DeviantART, all of them suggested by you. In this article, you will also find a variety of other things of interest, including:
:bulletwhite: This article’s deviant spotlight: featuring the lovely Naktarra. She has offered to answer a few questions as well, to tell us a bit about what inspires her writing and which piece in particular she favors.

Adjusting The Antennae (Ep. 16)Hello one and all, and welcome to our second Thanksgiving special! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays to everyone as well. I'm so glad to have you all here today with me and my very, very special guest. However, before I dive right into who this guest is (And a familiar face here on this series), I am your host, chromeantennae and it is an honor and a privilege to be a part of your Thanksgiving, today. And since this is the day of giving, I really couldn’t ask for anyone better than the truly inspirational LadyLincoln. Jenene is one of my biggest dA heroes here and she is someone I whole-heartedly admire and love with all of my heart. She is someone I'm extremely thankful for in my life on and outside of deviantART.
She's also here with me on the show again because she has a very important cause near and dear to her heart that she would like to raise my awareness on. And I wanted to assist her in that endeavor so I bring this true beauty back onto the sho

Life on DisplayShe had grown up in a world
of coupon clippings, muffled ears
and tip toeing around broken glass.
Bruised feelings towards the world
that looked so narrow and thin;
Felt like a resolutely locked door.
Always grasping for the heavens
with a desire and ferocity
of piercing iron claws.
Dominating the skies with all the
bulk and majesty of a bird of prey.
Boxed in at one corner of a city;
dusty and forgotten.
Yet, always guaranteed to be visible
at night. Raging quietly through
the darkness like the last bit of embers
on the end of her stamped cigarette butt.
Artsy and upscale enclaves beckoned her.
Hidden oases of roasting coffee, hip music
and fresh-cut flowers. So unlike the barren
desert of chain convenience stores and dreary
apartment blocks she called home.
Beautiful young women
clink marble china together, bobbling
around each other like planets bobbling
around the sun; All struggling for recognition
and permanence. All the while, defiantly staring
into the face of the force that ga
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.

Spotlights on... #16What's up people?
It's cool to see that despite summer, people on this website are still as active as usual ahah. Oh and btw my DA 1 year anniversary is coming veeery soon (on August the 2nd). :D Nostalgia nostalgia.
I changed a little bit the way I'm doing these features, now I'll also be featuring deviants that are worth your attention, because of their skills/spirit/kindness/etc.
Hope you'll enjoy!
Plum facts #9 : I studied classical literature and how to analyse prose/poetry with the use of literary and lyric tools. That's why I think I might be very sensitive of the author's style, which defines IMO the quality and the richness of the text. 
Have you studied any classical authors or even modern literature?

Spotlights on... #15Wow already #15. I still remember the feeling I had when I posted my first features articles: I really wanted to share my favourite art with all my friends, supporters and watchers. I received several compliments and praise for my features articles therefore I definitely can't stop doing them. :) (Smile)
I'm aware I might miss some unknown artists that need more exposure, and I'm sorry for that. I'm doing what I can to please all of you, and please me as well. 
I hope all of you have a great week so far. Summer definitely came back, and mosquitos too. Crying  Feel free to note me if you ever wanna talk, about anything. I'd love to share my stupid stories with you. Anyway enjoy this 15th wave of features. Make art, not war. 
See you soon! Hi!

The Ink Stained Quill Vol. IIIHello everyone! It's Kelsy, aka SpriteBlayde here. Welcome to the third volume of The Ink Stained Quill. This series focuses on the amazing writers we have here on deviantART. Each installment will feature a deviant who you may, or may not know, who is willing to answer some of my questions! Whether you are a long time writer, or a newbie, there is something for everyone in the series who is looking to improve their craft or for some light reading.
Today we have a guest who is insanely awesome. Her name is Nadia, but you may know her as Medoriko. I've been her watcher for long enough to know that Nadia puts out a variety of pieces. Her writing is truly incredible, she's one of the gifted writers who only has to write a couple of words to hit you head on with emotion. I highly recommend you browse her gallery, you won't be disappointed. :heart:

Before we start, is there anything you would like to
Random Feature Time!As the title says, it's a random feature! Before I begin, I would like to mention that I am still open to collaborations. If you're interested, please note me or comment here: http://spriteblayde.deviantart.com/journal/Poetry-Collaboration-453343304.
Now for the features! I will feature a couple of my personal favorite pieces from each person. :)
1. chromeantennae Not that he needs my help, but he's my best friend and an incredible writer. His style is so versatile and his subject matters cover a broad range. Please, go check out his stuff!

2. Medoriko I love this lady's writing! She has one of those styles of writing that make even the simplest of messages complex and meaningful. Please, go show her some love. :)

3. WeirdAndLovely She is an amazin

Hello, members and visitors of InspireTheUninspired! Welcome to our fortnightly feature, where we present four fantastic deviations from our gallery. This week I'll be sharing two deviations from both the Non-Fiction folder and the Poetry - Free Verse folder along with two other deviations from the deviant's gallery.
:iconsmadams:
SMAdams

Nightmares by SMAdams tells the story of a woman fighting her subconscious while she is plagued by nightmares. The descriptive imagery perfectly captures the feeling of being trapped and violated by our nightmares, something that many people are well acquainted with. It is the author's vast knowledge of language and prose writing that really brings this feeling to life.

Literature Roadtrip: Day 06The beautiful pieces of literature featured here today are written by extremely talented deviants. As you explore their galleries you will be amazed and captivated. I urge all of you to read a few of the pieces showcased, give them some comments and add them to your favourites. I know that these deviants would greatly appreciate it.
I also suggest that the deviants here today, take some time and look at two another pieces here. You may find a deviant you have never come across before.

Fantastic Feature Tuesday #45Please this news article so it will reach a larger audience!
This is a weekly feature of amazing literature that I come by during my
travels across deviantART. This is only a small sample of a vast amount
of wonderful pieces of literature written by absolutely fantastic
writers. Each deviation was carefully selected from a writer's gallery
based on structure, impact and word usage. I will never feature the
same person twice (though this gets harder to keep track of
now that we can change usernames), so check out these lovely writers now while you can!

Yeeeeeeeah. New hair is new. I normally go with bright red, you can see any of my photos to see that. I decided, when I had to get my hair rebraided, to do something different. This is the second time since 2008 that my hair has been a different color OTHER than red. The other time was green :lol: But yeah, half and half. I LOVE it. <3 

It just fits my personality and style so well. Something unique and fucking wicked awesome~ Decided to post a photo, since a buddy on here wanted to see how it looked. Hope you enjoy. :heart:

Happy Holidays and an Update

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 8, 2014, 3:08 PM
Happy Holidays, everybody! Sorry that I haven't been on in like...a week and a half. I had wicked and awful flu, so I haven't done anything but lay in bed and be sad for that time. Anyway, I'm back on my feet. I have been for the past couple of days, but I have also started picking up extra shifts at work since I'm done with my finals and all that, so I can work more to make extra money. So I have been working nonstop 10 hour shifts lol I took today off cause I felt just awful. But I have 10 hour shifts the rest of the week, minus my day off on Thursday. :lol: It'll be worth it when I get paid. I am also wanting to buy a new tablet for myself and it's like 500 bucks, so gotta earn it right?

Anyway. I'm happy the Holiday season is among us. Mostly. I get really depressed during the holidays since most of my family, people I used to spend Christmas with, have died by now. I miss them, and miss the times I used to have. However, I am doing my best to stay cheery as I can be. I'm thankful to have my roomie to be with me, and keep my spirits up.

As for other things. I am usually very good with New Years Resolutions. I usually choose obtainable goals, and a lot of times I meet them. My biggest one was to move to Canada. And I did. Granted, things did not pan out the way I anticipated, but I DID accomplish quite a goal. But I have come to realize there's a lot of things in my life that I feel are not in my control right now, and I don't like it. I want to take back control of certain things in my life that are bothering me. I have severely neglected my own health and happiness. I can't keep doing that. So. I have made a very specific New Years Resolution list.

1. Go back to Losing Weight. I had lost a good 30 pounds, and then stopped due to life throwing a wrench at me, and I was kinda bogged down with depression. I luckily didn't gain any BACK, but I am ready to get back into the swing of things :) If I can lose 30, I can keep it up.

2. Start going back to Therapy/fighting my Polymyositis. I have been neglecting both therapy AND taking my medicine for my muscle disorder...as welll as seeing my rheumatologist. My Doctor, when I finally did see her, said that she truly believe I can overcome this and be out of my chair, if i put in the effort. I'm disappointed that I had pretty much given up. I don't want to be inflicted with this disorder forever. I need to work harder. I've already gone back to taking my meds regularly, and I should be starting therapy in January.

3. Lastly. Find something I'm passionate about. I do enjoy a lot of things, but I don't think I'm passionate about ANYTHING, anymore. I think I want to take the time to learn something new. Like video editing, or broadcasting. Something creative and different. I've lost a lot of love for life, in the past years...and I used to enjoy just being a THING on a daily basis. I've gotten to the point where most days I'd rather stay in bed and hide. It isn't working and I'm so tired of feeling lost or having my happiness depend on how someone else feels about me.

So yes, these are my goals of the year. And like the other ones I have accomplished, these are most important. I want 2015 to be a better year than 2014 was, because this year has been horrible. One of the worst.

I'm ready for a change because I'm done with always having to fight my way out of some situation and I know I deserve a fucking break.

4. Read More. I haven't had time to read NEARLY as much as I usually do. I picked up a few books though. If you know of any good books, please share them <3

Hope you guys are doing well :heart: I am in the process of catching up on stuff from last week. I will also be putting out the next portion of my comm project, as as well as a smaller social project I want to do. Soon. :paranoid:

Christmas Cards Anyone?

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 28, 2014, 8:08 PM
So I bought a MASSIVE ton of Christmas cards from Target since they were on sale and I need people to send them to :love: This also kinda makes up for my Craft Project going so slowly...so much of the available money I had went to school related items -_-

Anyway! If you are interested in receiving a Christmas Card from me, note me your address. I'll be keeping a folder of notes with them and will be sending them out as I get people.

I may also be sending notes asking people if they want Christmas Cards, in case some of you miss this journal.

Hey, I'm back again!

For Synergy, this particular month, we are challenged to write a story together. So we should organize a time when we can both be online to decide that. 

Also, as a challenge, we have to recommend something, like a game or a movie or a book, to the other partner and then, if the person gets around to reading/watching/playing it, they write a note about it on the Journal and what they thought of it.

Since Irene isn't on as much as you, I'm kinda giving you this recommendation first. For game recommendations, I'll recommend Red Faction: Guerrilla. It's one of those games that were really, really cool when they came out but didn't get alot of publicity so not alot of people heard about it. You should atleast look it up on youtube, it's really cool. Other than that, if you can't find that game or don't like it or whatever, I can recommend the book "Levianthan" by Scott Westerfield. So those are my two recommendations.

What do you got for me?

Also, I've already got an idea for your present story. I'll get working on it as soon as I can.

I'll try my best with the story. I'm not so good with prose :lmao: But I'll do my best. My best bet is on my days off because I work 10 hour shifts so I am not always on when I get home from work. What days/times work for you?

I've heard of Red Faction, but never played. I'll youtube it :D

As for my recommendations:

I'll give a few of each since you're well versed in games:

Games: Legend of Zelda (OOT) (N64 version) youtube a playthrough, Tales of Xillia/tales of Xillia 2, Final Fantasy 9 or....Gravity Rush (which is an awesome game for the vita. I'd recommend it. Or at least checking out gameplay)

Books: The art of Looking Sideways.

Movies: Mmmmm...Any Miyazaki films, if you haven't seen them all.

Well, I'm in High School right now, so late in the day works pretty well. Saturday is always a great time. Actually, next week I have Thursday and Friday off, and then the next two weeks totally off. So somewhere around that time would be good because I'll have a pretty freaking flexible schedule. Do you want to try and set a date or something?

You'll have to see it; it's really hardcore. 

The art of Looking Sideways? Sounds unusual, but intriguing! Who wrote it?

Miyazaki? He did Spirited Away, didn't he? I actually haven't seen any of his work. I really should though; I'm hoping they have Howl's Moving Castle on The Funimation Site, then they are probably streaming it. I'll look into him.

As for the games, all of those I haven't actually played. But I'll look into Xillia or Gravity Rush. Thanks!

Alright. It would haveto be on a day off because I work full time now that my university classes are done for the semester. My next day off is this thursday. :o I can be on at any time in the day. How does that sound?

The art of looking sideways is written by Alan Fletcher. Here's a synopsis:

The Art of Looking Sideways is a primer in visual intelligence, an exploration of the workings of the eye, the hand, the brain and the imagination. It is an inexhaustible mine of anecdotes, quotations, images, curious facts and useless information, oddities, serious science, jokes and memories, all concerned with the interplay between the verbal and the visual, and the limitless resources of the human mind. Loosely arranged in 72 chapters, all this material is presented in a wonderfully inventive series of pages that are themselves masterly demonstrations of the expressive use of type, space, colour and imagery.

This book does not set out to teach lessons, but it is full of wisdom and insight collected from all over the world. Describing himself as a visual jackdaw, master designer Alan Fletcher has distilled a lifetime of experience and reflection into a brilliantly witty and inimitable exploration of such subjects as perception, colour, pattern, proportion, paradox, illusion, language, alphabets, words, letters, ideas, creativity, culture, style, aesthetics and value.

The Art of Looking Sideways is the ultimate guide to visual awareness, a magical compilation that will entertain and inspire all those who enjoy the interplay between word and image, and who relish the odd and the unexpected


Lol sorry for the text block.

WHAT. You haven't seen any Miyazaki films? They are fantastic. Miyazaki is a genius. Yes. Howl's Moving Castle is fantastic. I also enjoy Princess Mononoke. 

You gotta change that. :no: I gotta be your mentor :no:
