SixWordStories Contest - Five 3-Month PMs to win!UPDATE: The contest ends in a couple of days so get your entries in if you want to participate! Please also make sure your entry is in our folder here!SixWordStories Contest - Five 3-Month PMs to win!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
It has been a long time since we have had a contest, but we have some
Mid August News: Heart JourneyAfter celebrating another cherished DeviantART birthday – and a looming one of my own – I think of the scores of blessings and the occasional trials during my own DeviantART journey. During times of personal growth, painful loss and devious changes here throughout the years, there are many that freely give love and support. After nine years, I have valued everything they have done for me. My experiences would not have been entirely the same, otherwise.Mid August News: Heart Journey1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I owe a vast amount of gratitude to one deviant in particular, who ultimately gave me the courage to raise my voice in the darkness, when I was still trying to forge my path within the community. Many know of this angel who watches over us – his name is Bill, GeneratingHype. He, along with wreckling, StJoan, Moonbeam13, fourteenthstar, and Memnalar in particular – stayed by my side and offered (and continue to offer,) unwavering support.
Other dearest friends and loving beautiful soul

LoK Season FinaleTaking the good with the bad.LoK Season Finale3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't read on if you haven't seen it yet.
I was wrong about Asami, and I'm actually happy about it. For the longest while I was worried that if I gave up my suspicions for her, it'd be right before she actually did betray everyone. But, happily, she was a good guy right to the end, and her final confrontation with her father proved without a doubt whose side she was on. Asami, if you were real, I'd be on my knees apologizing to you right now. You're a BAMF and I love you. Also, good on you for being better than Mako in the end. I was half worried you'd be the jealous irritating type, but you soldiered through your pain and turned out to be one of the better characters in the show. You're awesome.
Tarrlok...also one of the most redeemable characters in the series. His bit at the start of Skeletons in the Closet was awesome. The revelation about

Now, I realize that the prizes aren't all that great, and I'll get to what they are in a little bit, but for right now let me just explain the contest a little more.
I got this idea after watching afterschool specials. My mom was talking about them, and now I love them a lot. The specific one that gave me the idea is the one titled "Amy and the Angel"
I just thought this would be a good idea. And maybe if it got enough attention, I'd do it annually? That's what I plan to do, anyway. By next year I would probably be more prepared and have more prizes to offer but since it's already January I should go ahead and start o3o
Anyhow, let me explain the theme a little bit. What I want from each entry is a piece of artwork that has something to do with the theme. I want it to be inspiring. Like, if someone was considering taking their life and saw your art, it would provide either hope, support, or an invit

Tips for Young Writers...with some help from BuffyHello readers!Tips for Young Writers...with some help from Buffy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I spend a lot of time talking with young writers about writing. Whether it’s the art of putting a novel together or ways to break into the industry, I get asked a lot of the same questions. So I thought I’d compile a list of tips here for writers getting started at any age. Maybe you’ve heard some of these before, maybe not. Either way, I hope they help you along your path.
1. Show, don’t tell.
Yes, you’ve definitely heard this before. A million times over. But what does it mean? The difference between showing and telling is the difference between sitting in a cafe in Paris sipping a latte and reading a menu online. You want to immerse your reader. If I’m telling, I’m over-describing, maybe even listing scenery. If I’m showing, I’m slipping in details where they fit naturally.
