HOLY FUCKITY FUCK FUCK.You know how this morning I made a journal about how Dala posted my music video on their Facebook page and their Manager emailed me and said I did a great job?HOLY FUCKITY FUCK FUCK.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
GUESS WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED.
The manager is my mom's friend's brother (as I explained) and they were emailing back and fourth about it and she just called to tell me that he decided he WANTS ME TO DIRECT DALA'S ACTUAL NEXT MUSIC VIDEO NEXT JUNE.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
OH MY FUCKING GOD.
I LOVE THE WORLD.
WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON.
He's talking to Dala about it right now.
We'll see how things pan out, but even just the POSSIBILITY of it happening is enough to make my freaking life.
And also, ALSO - I have learned now that he's a music professor at a Humber college, and if I apply there for their film program (which I hear is petty good), he can get me in really easily. (It's not where I want to go, but if I don't get into the program I want at York

The Literature Community ExperimentThis is a typical example of a BeccaJS shower pondering! The idea of this is to try and bring together as many people as possible all in one journal, but not for the sake of making a big number, but to encourage interaction and share useful tidbits. We often say the "literature community" has drifted apart over the past few years and this is just one attempt to try get people to come back together. It's a little hippy, perhaps a far-fetched idea, which is why I am calling it an "experiment". This could be successful and could be a complete fail- only you guys and your efforts can decide its fate!The Literature Community Experiment3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wow! The response for this has been HUGE!!! Thank you so much all of you who have participated! Don't forget to add CRLiterature to your watch as well as replying to all these wonderful comments!

Inspiring Deviants: LiteratureEveryday, I have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful deviants who continue to inspire me. In the eight years I have shared my writing here, I have had the privilege to meet others who value my passion for Literature and beyond – and have gained so much. From many here I have learned the power of stirring inspiration, delving into our creative passions, and connections in love and friendship. I wanted to spotlight just a few artistic souls who have made a distinctive impact in my life – and to express my deepest gratitude towards them all for making a difference within our Literature community.Inspiring Deviants: Literature2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

Identifying a Possible DDWith so much variety out there, it can be difficult to know what makes a piece good enough to receive a Daily Deviation (DD).Identifying a Possible DD3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We've put our heads together with the Literature Community Volunteers (Lit CVs), to come up with some advice on what makes a DD stand out. This isn't a definitive list, nor does it guarantee that your suggestions will actually get featured, but it should help you better understand what sets DDs apart from the rest.
Emotional Reaction and Wider Appeal
Possibly the most defining feature of all successful DDs is how they connect to the reader. Reading is often a personal and intimate activity, thus the emotional connection between the reader and literature varies. At some point though, we all form a connection with what we read. In the words of Nichrysalis:
"Writing should resonate on an emotional level, as art does, whether it entertains, saddens, or shocks. If a piece resonates with me, and I

(Updated)DD suggestion guidelines!Hello all(Updated)DD suggestion guidelines!3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Firstly, I would like to say I am truly grateful for every DD suggestion I receive. It makes me feel reassured that the pieces featured are community decisions, not just my own subjective thoughts and findings. There are millions of writings out there and I can’t see every single one. I rely on good spots of others in hope of continuing to share a variety of good quality and unique literature. Thank you to those who suggest and those who continue to make the time to share their findings.
I prefer 1 DD suggestion per note.
Please always try to tell me why you are suggesting this piece. A bit of enthusiasm from the suggester can help make me feel enthused about the piece too. Plus it helps add a description to the DD

Who Cares About the Literature Community?A few days ago we had a chat to discuss community issues and solutions (see the original journal for details). Huge thanks to everyone who came and raised awesome points!Who Cares About the Literature Community?2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
It took 45 minutes for the volume of talk to max out Sta.sh Writer's character limit and this chat went for two more hours, so I'm just going to summarize the key discussion points, starting with big actionables for CRLiterature and for the community.
I've put the chat stuff lower down as it's denser: the outside bullet is the issue, and the inside bullet is possible solutions (not necessarily in order, each point is really a response to the original issue). There is a lot to think about in there, but feel free to pick and choose the issues you care most about.
Sorry for leaving a lot of stuff out, but I hope you guys are too busy figuring out how best to act on what we discussed to pay too much attention

Now is time to focus on the suggesters. Those amazing (almost always human) beings who take a moment of their lives to go the extra mile when finding an amazing deviation and suggest it for consideration as a Daily Deviation. Ya know? I wouldn't be able to feature so many amazing art on my own! So before anything else, I want to take a moment to thank all the amazing people who suggest. Thank you guys!
As a person who also suggests DDs once in a while, I do understand the frustration suggesters often get. So I would like in this occasion to explain some of the reasons why th
Men"Men don't write things!Men4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Men kill wild boar and the blood splatter spells out what they want to say!
Men don't even own computers!
They live in lavishly decorated caves and eat raw meat while smoking cigars and playing guitars and are constantly walking away from explosions without looking back.
Real men work out by strangling nazis and saving orphans, kittens and women from various threats.
They also all fly jets in their spare time and go skydiving without a parachute, surviving the fall every time by punching death in the face, thus coming away unharmed.
Men never speak.
They communicate purely through fist fights."
Was talking to a friend about what a man is.
Sometimes I laugh at my own jokes.
This was one of those times.
Thought I'd share.
