I just saw the most beautiful commercial everRocky turns on the TV and John Lennon's 'Imagine' starts blaring. It wasn't advertising a company, it was advertising peace. They put a few quotes of his on the commercial and they showed these people of different origins holding hands.

As the members of the Today Page editorial board were putting together the editorial and visual elements of the article about “The Song of the Lark” saving Bill Murray’s life, the emotional quality of the content seemed to raise a special spirit that filled the space. Each of the team present began sharing which painting or poem or photograph had pulled them through a rough time in their life. We knew we had to share these “rescue art” stories with the community—but even more importantly, we want to know about your lifesaving experiences with art.

because of me.
Here's the story.
I showed her a picture of George as a teddy boy.
'She' being a friend of mine.
She grabs my phone and bites her finger
"what?" I say.
"He's sexy." She replies. My eyes widen.
"You really think so?"
She started talking about his hair, lips, and eyebrows.

Craft Elements of PoetryCraft Elements of PoetryCraft Elements of Poetry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Lines and Stanzas
• Do you have a clear rationale for breaking each of your lines where they currently end?
• Do your linebreaks generate suspense and surprise, making the reader want to find out what will happen in the next line?
• Are you employing a combination of end-stopped and enjambed lines?
• If you have more than one stanza, do your line groupings increase the impact of your poem’s style and subject matter?
Meter and Rhythm
• Does your poem have a discernible rhythm – either a scannable metrical pattern, or, if your poem is in free verse, a distinctive cadence that distinguishes it from prose?
The Music of Poetry
• If your poem rhymes, are the rhymes original, intelligent, and necessary?
• Have you fully considered alternatives to perfect end rhymes, such as slant, internal, and eye rhymes?
• Whether or not you are using rhyme, are you

It’s been described as similar to the experience of “love at first sight,”

DA artists I'd love to someday meet / get to know:No this isn't a creeper journal at all!DA artists I'd love to someday meet / get to know:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But really we all have artists we want to meet and someday get to know more, (either because of their work, about their work, or just because they seem like cool, chill people!)
On DeviantART there are a number of people I'd love to have the opportunity to hang out with. And who'd that be?
:iconbrosa: Brosa -- I look up to (Sergi) Brosa quite a bit. His imagery, his style, his coloring, his ideas, it's all so incredibly well done it floors me. (Want to know the way straight into my artist heart? It's amazing backgrounds and illustrations with narrative.) Plus I've always enjoyed the processes he shares.
:iconalgenpfleger: algenpfleger -- I've personally nicknamed Hannes "the human raytracer" because of his incredible understanding of light and materials. I look up to his work for inspiration on realism. (but still manages to have this unique defining characteristic.

#SixWordStories Showcase: June 18th - July 2ndA 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.#SixWordStories Showcase: June 18th - July 2nd3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing selections of the wonderful six word stories submitted to our bi-weekly word and theme prompts. New bi-weekly prompts will also be announced here.

Poetry Workshop: Rhythm + RhymePoetry is an art, just as much as music, oil painting, sculpting, dance, ceramics, textile art, screen printing, graphic design, and composing (and so on, of course). Therefore, it requires real skill, and not merely emotion and a proper grasp of the language one is writing it in. It may seem to you that the poetry you read in high school English class is either incredibly complex and unfathomable, or simple and seemingly meaningless. But we are going to look at only two small tricks of the trade which will help you be a better writer and/or appreciator of poetry.Poetry Workshop: Rhythm + Rhyme3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Of course, to fully appreciate poetry, other tricks are helpful, such as an understanding of the basic literary devices (personification, symbolism, alliteration, etc.), and the different sorts of poetic form (such as free verse, fixed form, blank verse, and all their sub-categories). But today we begin with two: rhythm and rhyme.
Let me be clear: rhythm is not exclusive to poetry. It is seen in also in pr

A Short Guide to Help You Publish ProfessionallyI don't know everything, so you might also want to check out this group: :iconpublish-write: for more information.A Short Guide to Help You Publish Professionally3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so you are a writer and you want to publish your story: it's a great one, everyone who's seen it loves it; you're sure any editor who reads it will want to publish it, so you set out to get your story published.
Well, it's a little easier said than done: getting published professionally takes a lot of time and a lot of work.
Why? Simply because there are so many writers out there who all want to publish their work; most publishing houses have what is called a 'slush pile' which is all the submissions they receive from unknown writers.
STAY OUT OF THE SLUSH PILE, IF YOU CAN
If you have a family member or a friend who works in a publishing house, ask their help; ask all your friends and family members if they know anyone who works in a publishing house; having a person you can talk to as a person and not as one more faceless submitter increases your chances immeasurabl
