PE: Poetry Forms- An A-Z An A-Z of Poetry Forms!PE: Poetry Forms- An A-Z1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
To kick start this week at projecteducate, we're starting off with a slightly lighter-hearted article listing just some of the poetic forms that exist out there. Lets be honest, there are hundreds and we can't list every single one. This is just a slice of the forms out there and if you are wishing to expand your understanding of different forms, do some research and don't take this as gospel!
Each form has a direct link to a site that describes the form in more detail, usually with examples too. I have also included some good examples from dA when I have found them.
Yes some of these link to wikipedia!
ABC- A poem where each word, line or stanza starts with the next continuous letter of the alphabet. Also known as an "Abcedarian"

Poetic Meter: A Complete Reference ManualPoetic Meter: A Complete Reference ManualPoetic Meter: A Complete Reference Manual1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Earlier in the week Beccalicious posted an A-Z of Poetry Forms which received a great response from the community. This time around, we're bringing you a comprehensive list of meter. Even later in the week, LaBruyere will be bringing you a guide on how to make your fixed form poetry a reality. This article is a (complete as can be) reference for reliable patterns of poetic meter with a widely-accepted method of scansion used to define them. This article is intended for those who have somewhat of a grasp on what fixed form is! So before we dive into the article know what you're in for (lots of terminology and patterns). Here are some terms and symbols you should be aware of:
Caesura - A complete pause within a line of poetry, sometimes provoked by a mark of punctuation.
Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a

NaNo is Around the CornerOnce again, we find ourselves getting ready for the insanity that is NaNoWriMo. If you've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. That means in the span of thirty days, participants will write 50,000 words.NaNo is Around the Corner11 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
1,667 words per day if they're writing every day.
2,273 words per day if they're only writing on weekdays.
6,250 words per day if they're only writing on weekends.
Either way it's a pretty hefty feat, and not something to walk into unprepared. Even if you're a "by the seat of your pants" type of writer.
Which is where planning and plotting come in. Sure, if you're a pantser, you can sit down and bang out a couple chapters, maybe a whole book, but can you do it in a month? Probably not. At least not without a little bit of preparation. For all the pantsers and everyone else, compiled here is a short list of things to keep in mind, ways to prepare, what no

So you've written something freaking awesome. You've edited a million times (and if you haven't, turn around and go do that. Right now). You think you maybe want to take the leap and try publishing something. But you have no idea where to start.
Well, this is a good place to be.
This the journal where I'll be keeping a running list of all the publishing resources I find, both on and off dA. Most of it will probably be related to literary journals, since that's the stage where I'm at in my literary career, but I'll add things about book publishing as I find them.
If you ever find a great resource, or if you'd like to request something specific, please leave me a note in the comments.
Also this journal is probably going to be super-messy and slightly badly-categorized for the first few weeks, so if anything looks out of place and/or you can think of a better way for me to organize this, please

It has come to our attention that a sizeable majority of you are having your six word stories declined by us pending approval during submission. If they are not declined, then they barely scrape through. Writing on behalf of the admins here in this group, we have discussions on what is acceptable and what is not, and the amount of pieces that are not acceptable has increased in the past few months.

Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.Hey everyone, just wanted to bring to your attention a plugin that might be useful for you. It's called Lazy Nezumi, and its main function is to help smooth your strokes out when you're drawing. So, if you want really tight, smooth lineart, or just clean lines in general it's pretty great. In a way, it lets you create a digital stroke closer to how you would on paper or a canvas, it just gives you more control. It's akin to the Lazy Mouse feature in Zbrush, or the Steady Stroke feature in Sketchbook Pro (which I'd highly recommend for anyone doing lineart, it has other great features as well).Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
There's a free demo for 30 days you can try out first and see if you like it. It has other features as well, but the one I find the most useful is the "pulled string" method under position processing, when you click details. It's something you might have to try to understand, but it can be super useful.

PE Prose Basics: Varying SentencesVarying Your SentencesPE Prose Basics: Varying Sentences7 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
When I was in college, I took an early morning Anthropology class. I had to wake up at five to catch the bus. Ugh. Yeah, I'm not a morning person. But I did it. The first day, our instructor stood before us and starting reading from the textbook. Word for word. Completely monotone. I was asleep within ten minutes. The rest of the week was the same; arrive, begin listening to the instructor, pass out. I had to drop the class and get whatever refund I could, while I could. It was my worse class experience there.
Most people know that in public speaking, the person talking needs to vary their tone and speech patterns and such to hold their audience's attention. They need to have a rhythm. Otherwise, they'll end up putting the audience to sleep. The same applies to writing. If you use the same sentence length or structure continually, you'll be the literary equivalent of my instructor.

How to: Organising Deviations in FeaturesHi everyone,How to: Organising Deviations in Features1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Some of you may know, I do a lot of features. Many kinds of them, - Urban & Rural related, Architectural and General Photography ones - and I tried out different ways to do it.
In most cases, CSS help you a lot. But if you don't use any fancy codes, I can show you some tips.
Organising by Colour
I think it is the most simple way to make your features more appealing.
You're lucky if you feature Black & White thumbs of course, you don't have to worry about it at all.
It is a bit time consuming and most cases, this is not as effective (like in my case, I collect General Photography Daily Deviations). I'm only collecting them, it's up to the CVs what they select to be featured as DDs of course
Sometimes it's random, sometimes it's easy as the deviations has similar colours in them.
To show you some examples, check out these:
advice from your local hypocritedon't do what i've done.advice from your local hypocrite1 year ago in Personal More Like This
don't wait for a beginning to start over. don't even wait for tomorrow - do it now. make a lot of lists. prioritize. get shit done. don't waste time on things that don't matter but remember the details. sometimes they're more important than anything else.
do everything on your own volition. don't do anything just because you have to. the only things you have to do involve natural bodily functions - the rest, there is always a choice, there is always a choice, people just forget about the less conventional options. figure out who's worth caring about & who isn't. fuck the people that aren't. take everything into account but don't let it make your decisions for you. trust your gut. don't ask for second opinions all the time. you know what you want - don't be afraid to admit it. if you find yourself leaning one way, defending one thing, take it as a sign. be selfish when you can & selfless when it strikes you. don't forget about your needs and your wishes
Beware of Some Tutorials... This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.Beware of Some Tutorials...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.
I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.
