ScreamPrompt #25, April 2012Fourth Month.ScreamPrompt #25, April 20122 years ago in Personal More Like This
Four thousand words.
All prompts are live
Here's what's gonna happen. I will list four prompts, one for each week of this month. Once a new week starts, the prompt for that week will be posted. Since I've been rather word-count heavy lately, we're taking it back to Flash Fiction. Because the prompts are going to be fairly simple compared to the past, I will be attaching a difficulty to each one, mostly to help you avoid leaping toward to most obvious initial ideas. Read on...
MAKE SURE YOU FAVE THIS JOURNAL AND WATCH FOR THE WEEKLY UPDATES!
April 3-8: A character does not want to go home.
Difficulty -- there's no abuse waiting for them when they get there.
April 9-15: Something they believed in their whole life has been a lie.
Difficulty -- no religion allowed.

The great hall of E3. The first thing you see when you enter the South hall (E3 is fricking huge).
Nintendo's area! I hung around this area for most of the 3 days since well... I love Nintendo! I played more games here such as Splatoon, Yoshi's new Yarn game and countless others.
A photo of me playing my 3DS while I wait in line to play Hyrule Warriors.
Me at a Monster Hunter photo shoot x)
The huuuuuge Super Smash Bros Wii U screen where players would battle it out to win a legit gold SSB medal. I kept winning the training part, but never the final battle T__T Still, my boyfriend won two medals and gave me one lol.
This isn't me, but I took this photo of my boyfriend and my friend photo-bombing him when we attended the Xbox One conference. It was really cool experiencing the conference live!
I also met people like the well-known Triforce guy and the creator of Tetris! *___*
Video and Encouragement For animatorshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ron03dpc-5sVideo and Encouragement For animators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, please don't think of this vid as something for Codename Kids Next Door Creator. I watched this to see what he had to say about creating the show, but he said some REALLY inspiring things as well.
Here's one for you:
Tom Warburton actually says he wasn't a good artist.
People often think that you need to be amazing at drawing to be an animator. NO YOU DON'T. You have to WANT to do it.
The vid is only about ten minutes long. Take a look at it. It inspired me just as much as Dan and Swampy's work does. These guys here, worked their butts off to get where they are. And all three of them have TV shows that were and are still considered to be the BEST of kids cartoons.

FOR ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS A BIT LATE
This all happened about five to six months ago. Obsessing about this would be just silly, on either side. If you managed to find your way here by now and would still like to know what happened, I'll give you a quick summary.
There USED to be a BHB journal explaining everything that happened , but DA recently banned a bunch of groups for whatever fucking reason. Anyways, it turned out that Rai (Nincianda) was Kas all along and wasn't actually 13 and had been banned from DA I believe at least 10 times already? Anyways, she was caught and flipped the fuck out. Aisha was caught tracing and left DA forever, but she still uses tumblr.
Nincianda ended up being someone who drew badly but found out people thought it was cute for a 12/13 year old. She also ran around telling people crazy stories about how she was abused and other shit, but when
Star Days Sim DateCan everybody reading this do me a favor and go over to NatsNeko and send her lots of hugs, love, llamas, etc. And comment on her page saying something along the lines of "Thank you very much you lovely person for giving a subscription to Pacthesis because without it, she wouldn't be able to post a lovely new journal with lovely pictures."Star Days Sim Date2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Thanks in advance. ;o;
After approximately 168 hours of playing video games, sleeping, walking on my treadmill, watching movies/anime, and doing leisure activities that are rare for me, I've decided to start another project.
It is said that when people die, they become stars. A group of people from different parallel universes and planets go on a journey to travel outside the Solar System and bring back loved ones who have passed away.

DA Lit : Who We AreI am proud to be exclusively a literature artist. I really don't know how to do anything else. Here on DA, Literature is not necessarily under appreciated by most of the people in the community, it is just widely ignored. I think, really, many of us are completely okay with that. For the most part, we aren't here for popularity.DA Lit : Who We Are3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One monstroooo, ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.
We are a community of our own. There are many groups here on DA that inspire writ

Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
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?"

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh
Messed up dream...My neck is sore after all the weird dreams I had last night. I kept waking up over and over again. But one dream was really funny. I wanna share it with you all.Messed up dream...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my dream, I was eating popcorn and watching TV (which in real life, I don't have cable). Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. I opened it to see ProtonJon and Chuggaaconroy at the door. They said they had a convention in town but needed a place to stay. Why out of all places would they come here?
Jon slumped onto my couch and turned on my brother's PlayStation3 and started playing Assassin's Creed. I sat beside him and said "I didn't even say yes or no, but I'm glad I got to meet you both." Chugga smiled. "Do you watch our videos?" I nodded "of course!"
Chugga got up and went into my room. Jon followed. I was a bit nervous because two 20 year olds were in a house alone with me... a teenage girl. Already I knew the situation was suspicious. When suddenly, I heard screams from my room. I ran there, only to see the two Let

"Ryan, what about your dad?" Brendon asked.
"What about my dad?" I asked him, kissing his neck. My fingers were knotted in his hair and his hands hooked into my belt loops. We were on the couch participating in obvious activities.
"What time's he supposed to get home?" Brendon asked, bringing me back to his lips.
"I don't know. Whenever," I answered quickly, wanting to do less talking and more kissing. I pressed my mouth to his as his tongue slid passed my lips. I stopped suddenly, however, when the familiar scratching of the key in the front door reached my ears. Sitting up with my legs on either side of Brendon, I put my hand over his mouth and the other on his quickly rising and f

This title has been censored courtesy of the gov'tSo, I'm sure all of you have heard of the new legislation that is trying to be passed in the government lately. If you haven't, these bills are H.R. 3261 Stop Online Anti Piracy Act (SOPA; introduced by R. Lamar Smith) and S. 968 Prevent Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011 (PROTECT IP; PIPA; introduced by D. Patrick Leahy). These acts working together are supposed to protect commercial industry against copyright infringement via the Internet. Although this is an honorable task, this is not the underlying purpose here. The government is trying to censor our Internet! These bills are extremely broad and does not differentiate enough between commercial industry and the everyday people. What does this mean for you?

List of Panic! at the Disco covers songs!CheeseLovingChester asked me to compile a list of all the Panic! at the Disco covers with download links. Well I downloaded most of mine with this YouTube to mp3 converter: http://www.youtube-mp3.org/ But I do have links to all of the videos I got mine from. The bolded songs will be ones that are actual download links from my Mediafire account that you won't have to convert with the website I gave above to get the audio. I cut those specific songs myself so that's why I why it's already straight to download. I would put all the covers up on my Mediafire account but I can only upload so many MB on the free account. I tried to get the best quality I could without any extra stuff like the band talking or the crowd screaming. If any of the links don't work or I forgot any that you know of, let me know!

This part will be about what drives them and how to royally ruin their day so you can entertain your readers. compelling characters are useless without a story.

What is it? A state of being that exists when needs or wants are not being fulfilled and the desire to have those needs or wants satisfied.
On a basic level, humans have needs. I hope we are familiar with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs because that is what I'm about to draw from. If not, here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs . On the bottom rung, we have physiological needs that must be met for basic survival: breathing, food, water, sex, sleep, h

When I'm looking through books in a brick and mortar store, I flip to the middle of a book for some reason and then put it on the shelf as if I ever had any intention of buying it (I don't know what compels me to buy a book anymore, to be honest). HOWEVER...
When I am here at deviantART, our supercool scrolling thumb feature allows me to see the first sentence of a story and make the determination on whether or not I want to continue reading. That said... I don't read much around here.
Boy, rhetoric is fun. We know why.
I don't judge a book by its cover but goddamn I will judge a story by its first line. It's called a "hook" for a reason. No one wants to read your story if your opening sentence is

How to Create Compelling Characters
I can't speak for everyone but I read for compelling characters. If the characters really move me, the plot can be as thin as it wants; though it's not always easy to have characters carry the whole thing if nothing is happening.
Where do we find compelling characters? In books, of course, but they're obviously not confined to books. Compelling characters in movies are just as important. Unless you're doing improv, plays and movie
