Saint Seiya New History for the Sanctuary (ITA)
Il fatto successo stamattina mi ha del tutto scombussolata...per non dire che lo ero anche prima, mi dirigo con passo deciso verso l'edificio accanto al castello, nonché la caserma degli Specter sotto il mio controllo.
Spalanco delicatamente le porte mentre una cinquantina di visi nascosti dagli elmi si voltano verso di me e dopo un attimo di esitazione e qualche bisbiglio si schierano inginocchiati e con voce pacata e seria mi salutano.
"Buongiorno Generale Selune"
Inizio ad attraversare il corridoio dove loro sono schierati con un piccolo sorriso di soddisfazione per sentirmi così importante dopodiché salgo le scale proprio nel fondo della camera e mi posiziono su un piano rialzato mentre loro si compattano in file orizzontali da dieci individui per potere ascoltare cosa ho da dire.
"Ho un annuncio da farvi, domani faremo un'imboscata al Santuario di Atene, quindi vi voglio riposati
When and How to EditLit Basics WeekWhen and How to Edit1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Earlier in the week I got into what editing is and how to love it. Now, let's talk about the entrée following this apéritif: when to edit, and how to do it. And, perhaps even more importantly, how to stop.
Stop, you say?!
Yeah, it's really not that hard to get caught up in this perfectionist funk where all you do is wind around in circles on the same piece. Curb it from the beginning by having an idea of where you want to end. What should the reader walk away thinking about? What should the reader walk away feeling? Do things move fast enough to be interesting?
I stop editing when I get to a point where all my edits are just minor wording tweaks. At that point I'll go back and forth, and I'm not even changing the overall impression the story creates. If it's not productive, it's not worthwhile.
Now that we've gotten dessert out of the way:
tWR Interviews: Characters, Imagery and MetaphorsHello everyone, and welcome to our "tWR Interviews", where we interview experienced writers of our community about the art of writing!tWR Interviews: Characters, Imagery and Metaphors9 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
If you're reading, please favourite and share the article so we can spread this amazing resource around!
I would like to take this as an occasion to remind the readers that what these deviants say isn't "The One And Only Truth", but rather concepts to analyse, think about, and learn from. Whether you learn from agreement, or disagreement with them, it depends on you alone.
Today we're interviewing SilverInkblot, BeccaJS and DrippingWords on imagery/metaphors for poetry, and SadisticIceCream and LadyLincoln (with help from julietcaesar, illuminara, neurotype and LiliWrites) on character building for prose.

PE: How to Make the Most of Your Lit on dALit Basics WeekPE: How to Make the Most of Your Lit on dA1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
It goes without saying that being noticed on dA as an artist isn't easy. Add in the fact that you're submitting literature to a predominantly visual arts site and you have an even lower chance of being noticed. Your friendly Literature Community Volunteers do their best to feature an array of poetry and prose, but even that is only a single day feature of ONE of your deviations. Getting a following or even just getting deviants to read your lit and give feedback is hard work. But you'll see a common denominator amongst those deviants that have made it.
It's community involvement. You shouldn't expect to receive if you're not willing to give. But how exactly can accomplish that? Is going to random Lit Groups and leaving critique on a dozen or so deviations a week enough? Probably not. Will participating in group challenges, prompts and contests get you noticed? Not by itself. What if you run a weekly or bi-weekly feature article of Literature on dA? Still, no.

Jeff nodded and continued.
"Some people use this sign to have a deal with a devil. They kill people to have power to do what they want, when they want it.."
"But..... why did I draw this?" you said.
"I don't know but we'll find out who's making you draw it. Maybe they want something in return." He said.
You sighed and walked outside to get your mind off of these signs. Unfortunately, it didn't work; It kept coming back and you heard a voice. You got up and saw no one there.

First off, understand that 99% of the literature community here on deviantART will give you just as much in return as you give back to it. It's a natural, human thing. But if you don't give back, you won't receive. That's always the number one thing to remember, but also that we're all here to support each other. Even the most popular of deviants started right where you are. Yes, even the Senior Members and lit CVs were newbies here on this site at one point too. And I know some people are intimidated by Senior Members and literature CVs but these folks are the LAST people to be intimidated by! They're in these positions for the exact opposite reasons-- they're not evil-doers or big bad monsters ready to reject whatever you sugge

After you explained to Slendy why you're here, he just got up and walked to Jeff.
"She can stay bu-" Slendy said but got interrupted by Jeff
"Yes!!!!" Jeff yelled, all happy.
"But she has to be a proxy if she's going to live here." Slendy said, but Jeff gave him a 'what?' look.
"You mean like an assistance?" You said all confused.
"Yes, but not my proxy. But you'll be Jeff's proxy." said Slendy.
"WHAT?!" you and Jeff said at the same time.
You tried to tell Slendy you don't want to be Jeff's proxy but he left for a meeting. You turned around and see jeff giving you a flirty look.

How to Write a Query LetterPublishing WeekHow to Write a Query Letter8 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
A query is kind of what it sounds like -- you're ASKING an agent or publisher if they're interested in seeing your book. But a query is more than hey what's up I'm awesome my book is awesome look at it plz! You have to write a professional letter that will entice the person who will read it into writing back with a HECK YES SHOW ME YOUR BOOK! (Okay, they probably won't say it like that. But you get the gist.)
The first line in your query should be:
Dear Ms./Mr. AgentLastName OR Dear Ms/Mr. EditorLastName
This might sound obvious, but you never EVER want to address a query with Dear Sirs/Madams or To Whom it May Concern. You also don't want to address it to the publisher or the agency. You are writing a specific agent or a specific editor, whom you've taken the time to research. You know what this person likes and you think he or she will like your book. So address them personally.

Writers' Block: The MythLit Basics WeekWriters' Block: The Myth1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
We've all suffered from sitting down at our desk, booting up our computer, ready to start writing a story and BAM nothing comes out. We sit there and sit there and still nothing comes out. We put everything away and try again the next day but have the same results. Then we go to our favourite blog site and write a journal about how the world is horrible and we're suffering from writers' block.
But are we really suffering from a block?
If, on the third day, someone came to us and said, "Have two pages, double spaced in 12pt text written by tomorrow at noon on a topic of your choosing and I'll give you $1,000," would we still be unable to produce something? I'm sure if given a deadline and incentive like this, the majority of us would be able to write two pages, double spaced in 12pt text by tomorrow at noon. Proving that writers' block is a myth. Well, in most cases.

Ever feel like no matter what you do, you just. can't. write?
You're not alone. Many other writers have been in the same situation, left frustrated and exhausted trying to get through this. But what can you do about it?
What is Writer's Block?
According to wikipedia
"Writer's block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce work for years.
Steps to Overcoming Writers Block
Quit. At least for now, take a step back and breathe. The more you struggle the more worked up you become and the worse the block seems to get. Before anything else, give your mind a break for a bit and come back. Sometimes that's all you even need to do. Remember, your mind, just like your body needs rest.
