Without going into all the wonderful enhancements (not only frame motion and dramatic juxtapositions, but also musical scoring and sound and flash effects) possible with the Madefire motion books process, it should be emphasized lest one get lost in all the bells and whistles that the actual

Follow-Up on the Motion Book ToolIn February, we released Madefire's Motion Book Tool to an initial set of deviants, marking the beginning of the Tool's release on deviantART. We've since seen deviants create a variety of detailed and impressive Motion Books, and are pleased with the artistic diversity that deviants are bringing to the Motion Book Tool.Follow-Up on the Motion Book Tool1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Check our the amazing examples below to see some of the great work deviants have produced with the tool:
As we continue to gradually release the Tool to the deviantART community, we want to ensure that the experience of creating and submitting Motion Books is streamlined and efficient from start to finish.
For deviants who already have access to the Motion Book Tool, we'd appreciate a few minutes of your time to answer the following questions. Your feedback will be used to aid development and testing. Aga

It might just be that I've been using it so long I forgot it's not real. Click the word to see it used in its original work.

Flash Fiction Month 2012Remember in April when cruelty came in the form of NaPoWriMo and Script Frenzy? Those poor prose writers may have felt lost what to do, and twiddled their thumbs impatiently? Well the wait is over as July brings a writing challenge for the fiction writers in the form of Flash Fiction Month!Flash Fiction Month 20123 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Flash Fiction Month (FMM)
What is FFM?
Flash Fiction Month (or FFM) is a month long challenge throughout the month of July. The objective is to write a different piece of flash fiction every single day of the month so by the end of the month you could have 31 pieces of new writing!
A “Flash Fiction” is a piece of prose which has a wordcount between 6 and 1000 words. The piece must be a complete story from start to finish and a standalone piece of work.
This is a great opportunity for those who have perhaps wanted to try a new form of writing, or enhance current skills. It is also worthwhile f
Beauty in Structure: Form PoetryBeauty in Structure: A How-To of Form PoetryBeauty in Structure: Form Poetry2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
There was once a time in which I despised free verse poetry for its lack of structure. It takes no talent to write this, I thought. Now, being an intelligent and rational adult I recognize that free verse has its merits. I even write in it occasionally, and it seems to be the default of many budding poets. But what is it about form poetry that makes beginning poets afraid of it? Perhaps the same thing that makes it so much better than free verse poetry, to me. And while many of you may understand the ins and outs of form poetry, especially as a result of this past week, it takes a little more work to apply it.
To that end, I wish to explain and explore some of my favorite methods of binding myself to structure--specifically meter. There is much more to writing form poetry than merely rhyming the words on the ends of the lines. And despite that "confine" and "bind" sound like negative wo
DDs: An IntroductionOne of the best things about being a writer on deviantART is the opportunity to be featured in a Daily Deviation (DD). While most literature communities can only offer you an audience of other writers, deviantART can expose your work to an incredible range of artists - and even non-artists (and other assorted muggles). A DD is a golden ticket to the kind of exposure which is so hard for a struggling wordsmith to find.DDs: An Introduction3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
And yet, the systems behind DDs seem to be a mystery to a large part of the deviantART community. Our recent poll suggests that almost half of our voters don't understand what DDs are or how they work.
WritersInk is stepping in to help. Over the next few weeks, we'll be talking in more detail about some of the different aspects of DDs. We'll explain how suggestions are processed, how to suggest a piece, and what to look for when making a suggestion. We'll also pay a visit to Daily Literature Deviat
The Literature Community ExperimentThis is a typical example of a BeccaJS shower pondering! The idea of this is to try and bring together as many people as possible all in one journal, but not for the sake of making a big number, but to encourage interaction and share useful tidbits. We often say the "literature community" has drifted apart over the past few years and this is just one attempt to try get people to come back together. It's a little hippy, perhaps a far-fetched idea, which is why I am calling it an "experiment". This could be successful and could be a complete fail- only you guys and your efforts can decide its fate!The Literature Community Experiment3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

PE: Self Suggesting Daily DeviationsSelf SuggestingPE: Self Suggesting Daily Deviations2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Members are more than welcome to self suggest their own art work for a Daily Deviation, in fact many CVs highly encourage self suggestions. While self suggesting may have been something people frowned upon in the past, this is thankfully no longer the case as we all recognize the need for self promotion in the competitive world of art.
But suggesting my own work is embarassing
There is no shame in trying to get yourself and your work seen. By self suggesting you are merely looking to gain more exposure from a broader audience. Look at it this way, if you're not willing to advertise your own work and get more clients and exposure, who will?
When we CVs receive self suggestions we treat them the same as we would any other suggestion so you can easily treat a self suggestion the same as you would a submission of your art to a group so more users can see the piece. While we do not guarantee that we
