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.

Autumn's clutchessunlight burns the morning mist
lukewarm and all aglow
rising sun thaws out all that's chilly
melting the frost that was barely-there
saturating the colors of autumn
the wind kissing my skin in a chill
leaves float around like butterflies
hitting the ground with a satisfying crunch
the aroma of cinnamon and apples
tease my palate and cause me to crave
I want to drown in hot mulled cider
and get drunk on cold pumpkin ale
take me into Autumn's clutches
leave me there and don't you ever fear
I'm entrenched with a coat made of fallen oak leaves
I am content in the rich, spicy air.
....Like whispers of despair,
One can hear the leaves echo their solace,
Yet in their last moments they burst with color,
A forest of fire and passion so intense it burns itself out almost as quick as it came,
Leaving nothing behind but a memory of what it once was.....
