Just Tell the Fucking StoryOkay, so I saw this journal that contained a number of tips, including a detailed section on 'show don't tell,' and I had an epiphany. There was an 'Oh' and everything so you know it's legit.Just Tell the Fucking Story2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
For a while now I have wondered why amateur writers write the most mind-numbingly long descriptions that I could not care about even a little (yes, my attention span is short, why'd you think I put in so many GIFs? but anyway, I'm a bit atypical there). I mean, I don't want the 'flames of burning searing pain of the aching broken heart' all up in my grill. I'd genuinely prefer a 'he hated her after the break up.' That's all I need to know about that? Good. Move on.
And that's the 'oh' moment: when people tell you to show not tell, they always fail to mention 'pacing.'
Look, there are times when it's best to convey a mood. His trembling fingers reach for the full glass, her voice an angry buzz in the back of his mind--I'd consider that a reasonable establishing shot. But if you're halfway t

I had the procedure done for my stomach and hopefully everything will be okay . For anyone who remembers all my complaining about it .
Also, I've been checking DDs every day, and it's really sad how much less attention they get now. I looked at today's just an hour ago and half of them hadn't broken the 200 fave mark ><. It's not any specific member's fault, I think it's just that the DDs (and journals) aren't in the footer anymore and so they're forgotten. Or, they have a computer like mine that takes ages to load any of the tabs, especially if you have it set to go right to the Today page ><.
At first, I thought the DDs were the only things really negatively affected (besides members' feelings of control of their profiles and work), but now I'm noticing how. . . dead it's getting around here. There are still a lot of people here, etc., but I think a lot of the 'old guard' have packed up and left. The only work that

Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig
