Pen and Paperthe way herPen and Paper by Medoriko
eyes- twitch. moments
when they pass away
like a past that
won't stay away,
and it's almost
the way a human
has the capacity to want
that was never there
at the start.
it feels like
the start has never
really hit me,
makes me wonder
if before -her
there ever was- a this.
and I gobble up her
her dream state.
It's like longing
only I need
something more than
what .she. makes
someone like .me.
so I stumble
in a drunken stupor,
in hopes that
can pull love
eyes of hers.
for that which
I have never
has every bit

Who's Who on dA: Issue 8 So this is SUPER late. NaPoWriMo took over my life. Oh, and final exams were a thing. Anyway, now that NaPo is over (despite the copious amount of reading I have to do. You guys killed it this year!), I have time to get back to my

Guide to 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:
Latest ABC's of Lit Edition. (also done by me)
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)! 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.

Project: TeamWork 2015It's that time of the year again: the TeamWork project is back!
For all those who don't know the project yet, here are some answers to all the questionmarks over your head.
Brace yourselves, this journal will be a long one.
What is the project about?
The aim of this project, hosted by Artistle, is to team up two ( or more) artists to achieve a close and individual learning-experience.
One of the group will be the teacher, whereas the other(s) will be the student(s). (But our teachers will learn through this project just as much, I'm sure )
Teachers will present assignments to their students and provide them with tools, techniques and lessons to achieve the goal they both decided on. In the end we'll present all the finished assignments in a big chat event and on our group page!
There are also prizes to be won, but more on that later in this journal.
We will provide all t
