one year membership to winner of eventahoyone year membership to winner of event3 years ago in Personal More Like This
i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"
my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma

ScreamPrompt #28, September 2012In the hopes of maybe spurring more than 14 of you to write a story for the group this month... I'm going to have to do something drastic. I'm expecting stories from each of you because there is no excuse for not doing the following: I feel like making you all get introspective and personal. We're familiar with the tired advice of "write what you know", so that's what we're gonna do this month. There is no way there should be any stragglers with this one. You all know something, right?ScreamPrompt #28, September 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Think of a word/adjective you don't like being called. Tell a story about someone (NOT YOU) fitting this adjective. Something bad should happen to them that should teach them a lesson and they end up redeeming themselves in the end.
What word/adjective you don't like being called? For me, that would be "princess". In the past, the guys in the kitchen would call me that and I'd have no ide

Write a story about something that was better left unsaid but was actually spoken.
Yes, I'm phoning this one in because phoning it in is better than skipping out on my responsibilities. I'd rather phone in a prompt than not post one at all. I am not happy about this but I think there can be some good results because you guys are smart and talented. You can think of this one as a softball or a breather all you want, won't change the fact that I'll come back with something to kick your butts later on.
Word count minimum is 2000. No vignettes/single scenes. Any POV, any genre.
It is due at the end of October.

2015 Spring ChallengesSo I'm changing things up a bit. Mostly because I will be working far more often then I used to be. A bonus to that is I will have a lot more money! And more money equals less stress and more creativity!2015 Spring Challenges3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, that also means I won't be on as often, though I will be checking in to approve submissions and change out challenges. For now though, we will be running on seasons instead of months. Spring season will, of course, include (March) April and May. This being said you will see a new challenge category!
If you have any concerns or comments don't hesitate to contact me. I will always respond to notes.
Remember you can also get 2 points for each past challenge design you submit.

Okay, so it's a bit cliche but I couldn't help it. With all of the driving I had to do this past weekend anything that has to do with traveling just seemed perfect for the first Seasonal theme. So, you've got Spring Break.

ScreamPrompt #24, March 2012 + Angry RantAlright, I am onto you guys. Don't think I don't notice that more people participate when I give you the softball prompts. But if that's what it takes every once in a while to get you all off your duffs and do what you're supposed to be doing, which is writing and not waiting for Christmas, here's a softball for you. Keep in mind I am aiming at your heads.ScreamPrompt #24, March 2012 + Angry Rant4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Someone gets the feeling they're being watched.
I bet 3/4 of you already got an idea from that.
Here's how I make it not so easy:
The character being watched has to confront the entity watching them.
One character must be a germophobe.
It has to be at least 3000 words.
It's due on March 18, 2012. Why? Why not.
LOL LIKE I'D EVER GIVE YOU GUYS ANOTHER SOFTBALL PROMPT!

Write a story. It should be at least 1000 words but no more than 2000. It can be a vignette or a short story. It can be any genre. It can be any POV. Hell, it can even be in 2nd person!
It can't be that easy.
You can't use any adverbs.
Remember where you are.
Lolwut? No adverbs?
There are many types of adverbs and uses; the following information is a quick overview. Read through that and then I will explain further what I am looking for. I RECOMMEND YOU READ THE SOURCES LISTED BELOW because I don't want to just copy-paste from them and they will explain more in-depth than I want to get into here; this is a prompt, not a workshop.

Hi! Gonna keep this one simple for those of us who are (or are not) participating in Script Frenzy, Napowrimo or Camp Nano as well...
(remember -- simple doesn't always mean easy)
I saw something at Tumblr that I thought I'd bring here just for the lulz (May, I promise, will bring pain again) and wanted to utilize it.
Work the phrase "not since the accident" into some dialogue by the main character within the first 250 words of the story.
Here are the guidelines to follow to keep things on track:
1. Must be a minimum of 2000 words, max 3000.
2. The main character has a horrible secret that is related to the "accident" they speak of. The more creative the accident, the better.
The secret cannot be that the main character is lying about the accident having even occurred.
Yeah, car accident leaps to mind first. Stop. Accidents are everywhere. Not everyone gets "hurt" in an accident. Think about what an accident

You know what? To hell with my self-pity!Here's a prompt for your face (it should be a fun one, though... hopefully!):You know what? To hell with my self-pity!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The WORST place to hear the phrase "Welcome Back."
The thing that I want to stand out is the SETTING. Sometimes settings are overlooked in stories or at very least, more phoned in than anything else. Settings are also characters, you know (well, if you didn't, you know now). We're all so much more concerned with silly things like character development and plot... so for once, let's focus in harder on something else! Where is the character? The more unique and specific the better. Say they're at the doctor's office. But are they at the proctologist? An abortionist? The plastic surgeon? Surprise me. And if you can't be unique, try harder. If you need help, note me.
Setting is key but also think about if they are with someone for the first time. Or their grandmother.
Why is it the worst place for them to hear this phrase?

my 2 cents on name changeits an awesome option, so thank you DA for thatmy 2 cents on name change3 years ago in Personal More Like This
however, if you have created a reputation on your on-going name, and this is particular important for those of you who are looking forward to create a bigger fan-base, think carefully before you change your name.
i dont speak for everyone, but i know that when i look at comments, my order of reading is this, their icon and then their name
theres been a couple of times that i failed to recognize a friend's comment because they changed their icon, so even the icon is a big deal if you are trying to make a name for yourself, its really like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
now if you change both your name and icon, its a pretty damn risky thing. I know DA sends your watcher a notice about name change, but you also have to know that there are lazy bastards like me who would fail to see those things when i'm distracted.
if you have created a name on the internet as, for example:"emerald-dragon" on DA, and people from

dumb thought of the dayevery now and then i get these stupid ideas.dumb thought of the day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here is the latest one...if gravity affects time, meaning stronger the gravity, more time is affected. and if the presumption is true that strong enough gravity can stop time..within a black hole
black hole has the mass of the collapsed star.... so... just before big bang we had all the cosmos compressed in a singular point with immeasurable mass, right?
that would mean that it is a ... sort of a non state point... a non event since time is in effective stasis.. space and time compressed in a singular point.
so an event has to transpire that was superior to all those 4 dimensions....
above time and space...
either this proves there is a God... or...doctor who is actually real!!!!!
yeah.... my mind is silly like that XD
aand just a warning if you take any of this seriously.....wwwow....i... damn! XD

This was originally a Sign up Challenge but I felt that with the sheer number of looks needed to make up the final collection it would fare far better as our new Year Long Challenge!
The Run Down
For this challenge you are tasked with creating a complete, cohesive, collection based upon 14 of our world's wondrous sights. You can create something literal, avant garde, evening gowns or casual. You can create for men, women or both! It is entirely up to you how you interpret your lists of inspirations. And just which wonders will you get to design for? Take a look below and you'll find out - Now I know that Christ the Redeemer is listed as one of the Man Made Wonders but the Great Pyramid was given honorable mention and I figured since the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro is part of the Natural Wonders, I would switch the two up.

10 Myths About IntrovertsI've been browsing through Web today while doing a little research and I've found an interesting article from musician Carl King, which I think is worth reading.10 Myths About Introverts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, being focused inwards rather than outwards is quite a common thing among people with artistic inclinations*, so I think I can find quite a few people here who'd be interested to read about what it means being one and also what are misconceptions that people have about Introverts - which I think the author got relatively well.
Also, I don't think that it's too much of a shocker if I'd admit to being an Introvert myself and rather big one at that (but it's best to view Introversion and Extroversion as a continuum - it's not that there's a fine line that separates one from another, people can be more or less Introverted or Extroverted).
Still, even among people closest to me I think there are things they're not getting about what does it mean being Introverted... heck - there are things I myself didn't realize and k

Chase A Fat PersonObesity is a rising problem in our world and it doesn't just affect the obese, it is all of our responsibility. You, me, my neighbor Rich.

Which is why i introduce Chase A Fat Person Day
On Chase a fat person day, you should find a safe place to hide in a good area where you are likely to find Obese people. Outside of fast food facilities and burger diners is a good start. When a fat person comes near, you jump out at them! And then you chase them!
Don't just let up after a block or so, your dedication is key to proving to them they have what it takes to stick to it. If you need to, snap your teeth at them, or make terrifying noises. Chase a fat person for as long as you are able or until they collapse, obviously due to satisfaction from a good day of exercise.
