New Exercise and More! Valentines ExerciseNew Exercise and More!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Time for a friendly group stretch and an exercise. Valentine's Day is coming up and lets face it, not everyone loves the theme of love in their story. So I’ve decided that instead of making you write about fluff and happy endings, I will give you one rule. Stick to the word theme.
Below are a list of phrases taken from those adorable little candy hearts you find at the store. Your goal? Write a story or a poem that incorporates one or all of these words into it. Whether it be through theme, or physically putting the words in your piece. Just let your muse take you where you want to go with it.
You must pick a candy heart phrase from the list below and use it to fuel your piece.

A few days ago #Elocutionists received a huge helping of prize donations for an unnamed contest the likes and scale of which have never been seen on deviantART before. What is it, you ask?
It's a slam. A poetry slam. And it's Louder Than dA Bomb.
A poetry slam is a "no holds barred" spoken word competition. Poets are encouraged to alliterate, rhyme, shout, whisper, zing, compliment, parody, satirize, improvise, recite, quote, play with words and even sing if the opportunity arises.
For the longest time the #Elocutionists team have wanted to hear the roaring voice of literature, and this month we don't want to hear just any spoken word for a chance at prizes— NO! We want to listen to a writer's passion, emotion, and drive to keep being who they are; their inspiration to keep writing as they will and we want to hear you que

I hope everyone had a lovely break and are fully in the swing of the New Year!
Now this journal isn't a personal one, despite the title- in fact it is a journal I am challenging all of you to write and all of you to help others write. At this time of year, we've made resolutions and I expect half of you have included "write more" as one of those resolutions. This experiment is to help you fulfil that resolution so by 2014 you are sat here feeling achieved.

The Literature Community ExperimentThis is a typical example of a ^Beccalicious 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 Experiment1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This

Visual Presentation & Lit SkinsWith the advent of the sta.sh writer, Literature deviants now have the ability to create skins for their pieces. There has been quite an uproar from many different factions in regards to this. I though I would take the time here to explain why this actually is a benefit, if properly utilized. I thought I would dispel a few myths in regards to lit skins, as well as in regards to literature and presentation as a whole.Visual Presentation & Lit Skins2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Visual Movement
I think the only way you might have missed the visual movement in literature is if you've been living under a rock.
For the past week, I've seen two DDs that are Visual based poetry. Hey, guys, I thought you didn't judge things by looks?
The fact is: we live in a society that has become inundated with the visual. Our minds have been wired to respond to it. It's psychology, it's sociology, it's anthropology, it's a fact so how about we all just accept that, hmmm?
This isn't new. What do you think

What is Operation TYP?
It’s 24 hours of fun, and a dash of mischief, for the literature community. At the start date you will be given a simple task that can be done in as little as 2 minutes. It will be up to you to make it fun and creative though.
What is this task? It’s so super secret we can’t tell you until the start date!
What we can tell you is this: It will be quick and easy. It will be fun. You will have 24 hours to complete the task. You can participate multiple times. There will be prizes for random participants and a little something extra for three creative deviants!
Date: Saturday, February 4th, 2012
Time: 12:00 AM EST*

March - Character contest/giveaway! (EXTENDED)UPDATE/EDIT - A few people requested I extend the contest deadline, and due to a few extra things that came up last minute, I'll be extending the contest until Friday, May 10th 2013. Consequently, the livestream announcement of winners will be moved back until 6PM EST on Saturday, May 11th 2013. I will not extend it farther than this, as it wouldn't be fair to the people who have already entered.
