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:

DDs, DLDs, Features, etc







:iconfeaturedbydldplz::iconfeaturedbydld2plz: (My DLDs)

Bait and SwitchBougainvillea blooms
and tall, shaded ferns disguise
this sorrowful life.
Fear NotBe the sky that I
can jump into; Your eyes are
pools of stepping stones.



:iconhonoredddplz::iconhonoredddplz2: (MY DDs)

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.


Thank you Stamp. by itsreality

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?   
I am a dummy! DEVIANTS AND DEVIATIONS I am a dummy!

Kurtzan - Awesome support, well-
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!
Plum facts #8 : I've found a new hobby, watercolour. I just came across some amazing pieces of

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

A Feature full of LOVE Let's start with some words that I adore.

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.

NaPoWriMo Feature #4Sooo hi. Yes, I know it's been almost two whole months since NaPo ended, but I am lazy and irresponsible so there. Here is the final installment of the NaPo features, with, once again, three of my favorite NaPo poems from all of the winners. Enjoy!

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!

Thin Line“Isn’t this illegal?”
“No, just… forbidden.”
MilkI’m a gallon of milk. I lived in the dairy aisle until this afternoon when a woman came to buy me. I was so excited to finally belong to someone. I had a good feeling about her, too. She was very gentle with me, and she even put me in front of the shopping cart so I could see everything. I couldn't wait to get into her fridge.
We went for a ride in her car. I could tell that she lived far away from the store because it was a long ride. I was in a bag, so I couldn't see anything, but the music was nice and relaxing. She was a very careful driver, so the ride was nice and smooth. When she took me out of the car, I could see her neighborhood. It was very beautiful with lots of huge trees and houses. I instantly fell in love with my new home. 
We went inside and she set me on the counter for a second while she put the butter away. Just as she was getting ready to put me in the fridge, a strange man busted into the kitchen. He wore a ski mask and all black clothes. I was con
New Tread from: LonelyGuy123"I'd

catfish."
UntouchableHow dare I smile at her
With bits of forbidden fruit
Still lodged in my teeth,
Juices rolling down my chin
Like the lies I’m about to tell her.
How dare I speak to her
When the familiar sting of last
Night’s sin is fresh in the
Back of my throat,
In the front of my mind,
And now on the tip of my tongue.
How dare I look at her,
Without really seeing her.
Every glance is another fracture
To the mirage of stained glass arches,
Concealing dirty two-way mirrors.
Foggy and weathered, they lead not
To sanctuary, but to nowhere.
How dare I console her,
And remind her to look up, when
My very existence is proof there’s
Nothing there, my hand leaving
Paw shaped stains of crimson on the
Shoulder of her pretty white dress again.
How dare I miss her,
When my absence is better
For her than I could ever pretend
To be, my sacrifice, my pain,
My first step to salvation,
The only good thing I will
Ever do with my time on earth.

Like Forbidden LoveI shouldn't be here
The signs were clear
There's danger ahead
I'll wind up dead
The cliff's too small
So when I fall
It's not a shame
I've got myself to blame
painful memoriesher memory stabs me
like an icicle to the gut.
it causes my insomnia
and only lets me sleep
long enough to dream
about what we could have been
and why we can never
be anything to each other
but painful memories
hurtevery time i blink
a stream of tears
stings my cheeks
and falls like rain
off my chin
til it forms a spot
right over where my heart
would be
had you not just
ripped it out
and left me to cry
on the train
like a dog


No BrainerThe library is packed, but you locate your friend in one of the study holes. When she sees you, she lets out an exaggerated yawn and stretches her arms out, emitting a slight whimper.
“Hey, are you ready to go?” she asks, looking at you through puffy, bloodshot eyes. Her desk is cluttered with textbooks, pens, highlighters, a laptop, iPod, chips, and a large coffee. All the ingredients of a last ditch effort to cram five weeks of missed class material into one night’s worth of study-time-extravaganza for tomorrow's midterm.She looks terrible, you think to yourself, she’s definitely not going to want to help me out right now.
“Not quite,” you admit, “I lost my coat.”
She looks at you as if you just asked her to stick her hand into a bear trap for you. A guilty feeling creeps up on you as you look into her desperate face. You are supposed to be rescuingher from the study-time-extravaganza. You think of how she waited

Prelude to an EpiphanyYou never gave a fuck before
But now you wanna start
Cause there's a lock on the door
And this gun is to my heart
It's too late to forgive
It's too late for the tears
If you really want me to live
You'd have listened over the years
I'm sorry is no excuse
Neither is I tried
Because of your abuse
An innocent girl just died
And now you're asking yourselves why
As you're looking straight through
Do you remember the times
I said can I talk to you?
Butterfly Poems in WintertimeWhenever I read
Butterfly poems in wintertime,
I feel like a failure.
And once I catch
My breath
I need a shot of something strong
For the pain
Of being willing to give my own summer
To keep the butterfly warm
But knowing that
I don't have one.
