What Is A Story?Lit Basics WeekWhat Is A Story?6 hours ago in Personal More Like This
Well, the internet has a lot of entries when you search for the words "definition of story" (a lot possibly meaning millions). It's where many of us get our wisdom from, isn't it? One of the pages I selected said a "story" is defined as
"a narrative, either true or fictitious, prose or verse, designed to interest, amuse, or instruct the hearer or reader; tale."
I like the definition, and although that's not the only thing that a story is, I believe it's a nice groundwork to build up from. The most interesting parts are the words "prose or verse", "narrative", and "designed to interest, amuse or instruct": narrative, to me, implies the presence of a plot and so of a beginning-middle-end kind of structure. The second part tells me that a story needs to be told in a certain way. And "prose or verse" is a useful reminder that a story isn't only prose - it doesn't matter if your story is written in poetry or prose form

Is rhymecore a thing? It is now.
This is a classic pioneering example of rhymecore.

We Need Community Opinions!It's been a week since the winners were announced and to keep my promise of keeping this group chugging along I want to ask you as the wonderful group member, watcher, or deviant where you would like to see this group go. Obviously, we don't exactly have the super group status, so I can't make you an official poll of any sorts. However, I have found the solution to simple post below what your opinion is on the matter.We Need Community Opinions!4 hours ago in Personal More Like This
(Pick a maximum of two.)
[A] More contests!
--We might be prize and point dry, but after the success of the last contest, I would be more than happy to run another if the group feels it's fun. Plus, now that we have three lovely admins we could try running even bigger contests. Go big or go home I'd say.
[B] Weekly prompts.
--I'll give you a thing to write about. Something that could be from flash fiction, a short story to a poem and you write with your brain area and we all pat each other on the back. I'm in consideration of including small po
So done with the Utau communityI'm leaving the UTAU community. I'd rather just use it for my own sake than be involved in such stupid and sickening drama. I won't be posting covers online for a while, nor will I draw anything UTAU related. I'm just...It's just disgusting about what's happened.So done with the Utau community8 hours ago in Personal More Like This
And heck, I even got as mad as to record myself ranting..
Also, it's very sfw. I don't swear much ;; (I only type swears, and even then it's only when I need to)..
Just be forewarned that if you're sensitive about this topic, please don't listen to my horrible voice..
Journal update! :DHello,GW fans!Journal update! :D14 minutes ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't updated the group's journal for ages ^^.
Just dropping by to say that the group is getting bigger and bigger and we have much much new beautiful artworks! Only 200 members more until 1000!
Anyway what do you think about the second season of the living story? Did you enjoy the first 2 episodes from the arc for the dragon Mordremoth?
RULES! Please read them. Thank you
HOW TO JOIN:
As you can see, the club is now a group, so there is no need to send a note to the admins. Simply click the "Join our group" button in the blue panel at the top of the page.
How to submit art:
Again, don't send a note to the admins. Just click the "Contribute art" button (again the same blue panel). It is much easier for you and for us the admins. After a short time we will accept your art.
