Editing is often the hardest part of writing a book, because chances are, once you reach the point where you need to edit, you either are tired of seeing the same pages over and over, don’t know what to do, or simply don’t know how to correctly go back and fix your mistakes. Hopefully these five tips below will help if you have this common, yet deadly problem.
-Write with the heart first, then edit with the mind.
This is something my teacher taught me, but if the advice sounds familiar, then you most likely heard this famous quote in the movie, Finding Forrester (2000): “No thinking-that comes later. You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is…to

Gaga for DadaThis weeks topic: gaga for dadaGaga for Dada2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Learning about art history can foster creativity, give us a better understanding of art, and inspire us to go beyond our limits. Over the next few months, I am going to be periodically publishing articles about different schools and styles from the Modernist period. I hope these articles not only help you gain a better understanding of history but inspire and challenge you. Thank you for reading.
what is dadaism?
Design is History EXPLAINS IT AS:
"Dada was a cultural movement that was concentrated on anti-war politics which then made its way to the art world through art theory, art manifestoes, literature, poetry and eventually graphic design and the visual arts. The movement, although Dadaists would not have been happy calling it a movement, originated in Switzerland and spread across Europe and into the United States, which was a safe haven for many writers during World War I.

Too many non-serious manips on dA?wow, folks, it's been a long time since I've been writing a journal entry...

Anyway, I'm just back from browsing the photomanipulation category and I just can't believe it: there are five body 'retouches' (you know the ones with the huge boobs, bottoms and bellies) and even one sex piece on the photomanipulation front page. On the second page there are eight (!) more freaky body retouches and one more sex related piece . What has the photomanip genre come down to? How come those nasty little rubbish pieces get so many favs? Is this slowly becoming a porn site?
Is it just me or are these non-serious manips on the rise and taking over???
What's your opinion?

DAS - why people hate it?I've been getting myself into some angry discussions. What for?DAS - why people hate it?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
DA user DeviantArtSecret. It's basically kind of a group. When you have some kind of secret, a problem you want to anonymously share, you'll send it to DAS' staff and they'll submit it anonymously for you.
I support this idea because I consider sharing a little bit of one's life to be art. Autobiography is art too, isn't it? This is it, just in less words, sometimes with grammar mistakes and weird fonts. Many people can relate to the secrets and many people comment supportively those secrets. DAS can make a difference for a lot of people who are lost and need some help.
Then comes "evil". Poeple who go on about how these secrets aren't art and that they "don't want to see this crap at the front page". You know how artwork gets to front page? When it's popular. The majority likes DAS. And who are the people that hate DAS? That's right, people who never get to the front page. People who are unfortunate in having no tale

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
