Heart to Heart Interview: KellerACHello Everyone!
Welcome back for another installation of deviantHEART’s newest Journal series, Heart to Heart! The goal of these feature articles is to learn more about our featured Heartists overall as well as on a personal level.

Monday Munchies Every Monday, I will be featuring a single deviant's artwork. The deviant may be known or unknown, and may have received accolades or joined deviantART last week. By featuring just a single deviant, I hope to give the deviant some exposure and bring a little beauty to your week. I also include a short description about the artist and/or what draws me to their work.

I accidentally came across Naolito today while creating this post. This first design that I saw really captivated me, it was incredibly stylish, and made usable by so many due to the availability of the item as a t-shirt and sweatshirt online! The design it self is really fun and enjoyable..
The images that Nacho creates are fantastic! In his biography he writes:

PE: Literature Basics SettingsLiterature Basics Week
Along with characters and plot, setting is one of the most important choices we make when we write. In the most basic terms, setting is where your literary work takes place. It's up to you, as the author, to use it and mold it to fit the needs of your writing, make it more than just a backdrop to your prose or poetry.
A good setting becomes like a character itself. It can be express moods, offer comfort or hindrance. The setting can even be the main antagonist - consider the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's The Shining, or the island in the 2000 Tom Hanks' film, Cast Away. In both of these examples, the protagonist(s) have to survive their surroundings, one mundane, the other ... less so.
Make Your Setting Work For You
Everything in your written work must be chosen for maximum effect. When deciding on your setting, decide what you want to accomplish with it. Here are some possibilities.
The Shinigami Calls
How To Use
The human whose name is written in this note shall die.This note will not take effect unless the writer has the person's face in their mind when writing his/her name. Therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.If the cause of death is written within the next 40 seconds of writing the person's name, it will happen.If the cause of death is not specified, the person will simply die of a heart attack.After writing the cause of death, details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
How will you catch a criminal with a power to kill like a God?

DeviantART Compliments #118Reviews have become a trend here on dA don't get better than this work in my honest opinion. With that said, Nolannilestheletter always delivers on what I honestly believe is a major problem in fan fiction that should be taken seriously for the simple fact that fan fiction is like any other literature genre. Thanks, bro - keep writing. It helps in understanding the difference between good and bad fan fiction.
