Natures Mystery Contest

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 2, 2015, 1:11 PM

Ok, so here it is the very first NaturesMystery Contest.  What is it all about?

We want YOU to create the piece of art you best think sums up the Mystery of Nature. It can be in any media, Poetry, Painting, Drawing, Photography, Collage, Sculpture, Anything that can be uploaded to DA. It can be a new work of art, or if you feel you have the right piece in your gallery already, you may enter that piece. Each artist may submit just ONE piece. 

We then want you to join our group (unless you are already a member) NaturesMystery and add the piece to the JULY CONTESET ENTRIES folder. The folder will be open for submissions between July 1st 2015 and July 31st 2015 after which voting will begin.

First round of voting will be for entrants only. You will get to pick 3 pieces you wish to make the final shortlist. ALL shortlisted pieces will get a permanent feature in our NaturesMystery group. You will not be allowed to vote for your own piece, and each vote will carry the same weight. Voting will be open for a week, between 1st August 2015 and 8th August 2015, and to be shortlisted you must vote. I will send a reminder to all entrants to vote.

The final round of voting will be open to all members of NaturesMystery. Every member will be entitled to one vote, for any piece of art that is in the final shortlist. Again, voting will be open for a week, between 9th August 2015 and 15 August 2015

That brings us to prizes. Why should you enter? What could you win?

In addition the overall winner will get A 3 Month Premium Membership

Second place overall will win  200 DA points

FFM2015: Looney Tunes

Wed Jul 1, 2015, 10:14 PM

    Welcome to Flash Fiction Month! Maybe it's your first time, or maybe you've been riding the wave since 1996. Who knows, it's a challenge no matter how many times you do it. That's why I'm here to help people along with my little choo-choo train of creative integrity.

    Now, this ain't going to be one of those daily prompt articles, because I think I would die making those as well as doing FFM myself, but this will be a short-lived article every two days with some interesting food for thought, or perhaps a little bit of fun to inspire that thinker-noodle of yours. It's time to get down and dirty with FFM! :heart:

    It always helps to :+fav: and support these articles! Tell people about FFM this month by linking them to journals about FFM and make this a great experience for you and your friends! No one likes to write alone!

    Also, if you find these helpful, tell me so! Show me all your literature this month and we'll all have a real swell time! I want to be able to do this again in the future for NaNoWriMo or NaPoWriMo. :love:

July 1st – Looney Tunes - FFM

Happy writing,

My birthday is coming up next week in 4 days yay! So, I'm doing the beach theme for my birthday party which it's on the 18th that is the week after my birthday. I will invite my awesome people (which is you guys), and I would be happy if you guys can surprise me with your artwork of the things that I like. Oh my gosh, the days are going by fast like a lightning speed! I'm also excited for the 4th of July: the time of the month where I have busy events with my family.
