DA suggestion: anti giveaway miscats.I would like to suggest that purposefully posting giveaways in the literature fiction prose and fiction poetry sections is manipulating the deviantART front page system to get onto the front page easier, at the expense of an already under-represented frustrated literature community.DA suggestion: anti giveaway miscats.2 years ago in Written Suggestions More Like This
Giveaways are not art, therefore do not belong in a literary art gallery.
I will report these as miscats when I see them and post to tell the poster that I believe they have put it in the wrong section, but I would like to suggest that repeated offenders be banned for what is essentially manipulating the DeviantART system for personal gain.

The passengers continued looking in front of them, ignoring the psychotic man that only Anna seemed to notice. None on the bus wanted to draw the man's attention or knife towards them. But it was the last stop, a
Music themed Writing MemeWhen I was bored a few nights ago I was looking at meme's on DeviantArt and noticed there was a meme where you were supposed to draw a sketch based on a song and only sketch it while the song was playing.

Then while thinking that I really needed to work on my writing skills I suddenly thought "Why can't I do the same thing as that meme but instead of drawing, write it?"Music themed Writing Meme6 years ago in Devious Fun More Like This
Rules are simple:
1: Place your favorite playlist on random and then hit play. Listen to the song that is chosen and then pick a character/pairing to use and start writing.
