If everyone cared and nobody cried,
If everyone loved and nobody lied,
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died.
~Nickelback , If everyone cared.
There is no exercise better for the heart then reaching down and lifting people up.

"Every artist was first an amateur." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
FailureI would just like to take a moment of everyone's time to say a few words....Failure9 months ago in Personal More Like This
No matter what you do in life (or on this site), whether you draw, or write, or take pictures, or anything else--
The only time you ever truly fail is when you stop trying to improve.
When you stop and say, "This is good enough."
Because it's not good enough.
And it never will be.
That's what makes the adventure so lovely.
"Good enough" is equivalent to giving up on yourself.
It's a resignation.
And it's sad.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that you should never be happy with your work.
Getting to that next level feels great...
But, you shouldn't stop there.
Be cognizant of the flaws, however grand or infinitesimal they might be, and try to do better in the future.
Your best is absolutely NOT a static ideal.
Thank you for your time.

How to Write a Story: A Guide by KitaWriting a StoryHow to Write a Story: A Guide by Kita4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello guys! Kita-Angel here again with even more stuff! Today I will be taking the time to make an article about story writing, really the key points, what they are, how you can improve on them and what a story really is, like what brings it all together.
There is going to be a LOT of key stuff here, and it is going to sound like English class in high school all over again. Hooray! But this is valuable stuff, so pay attention. It is definitely worth it!
This guide was written with the intention to help those who lack any experience at all with story writing to know what is required to make a story. After this we can maybe start looking into how to improve what you have worked on!
What Makes a Story
So, what is it that makes a story? Where do people get these amazing ideas for amazing stories? How do we take the idea and make all the components needed?
Generally, in a story you have an Int

BUT THERE IS AN UPSIDE
This is an honorSo, I have received another DD feature! It is my second one and I'm just so astounded that it was possible I could get another. I woke up this morning, and checked dA for any new notifications or deviations to read (finally cleared the deviations inbox besides a few. FTW), and lo and behold, there were comments on The Colossus that said, "Congratulations on the DD!" Needless to say, I was really blown away. At first, I was shocked and was sure I was still dreaming, but no I wasn't. I am so grateful for this feature. Especially because I've gotten one before AND because I made the 24 front page yesterday. I thank all who supports me, but also littlemoonboots, luckyshorelines, and DorianHarper for making my second feature possible. You are all such lovely, kind-hearted people who are just too wonderful. Stay that way, stay golden, and people will easily fall in love with you (in a friend way) like I have.This is an honor1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Robin Williams - Light out of DarkI originally wrote and posted this elsewhere, but I just need to post it here too and expand on it a bit. This is the only place where I'd publicly go this deep.Robin Williams - Light out of Dark6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Robin Williams made light for the whole world out of his own personal darkness. He is irreplaceable. People like him are a true gift to life and often paying dearly for it, sometimes the ultimate price. That fact about him was not a secret.
It's deeply profound and sad when someone who caused so much joy for so many people for so long is suddenly just gone, let alone the ultimate circumstances thereof.
It is often wondered 'How can someone this funny be so sad?', or the other way around. You know how people like to refer to sad clowns without thinking any further than just this attempt at making an ironic statement.
Often enough the sad truth is that someone is as great at making people laugh as he or she is because he or she are deeply sad or depressed or otherwise very troubled on the inside. Maybe bringing joy to others is

"In dreams everything is possible... you may look at the sunrise, but at the same time there is a night above you. Most distant planets can become closest ones. You may run on the water and fly like a bird. World can become opposite, where sea animals start to fly and breathe the air. It's a place where your fantasy and imagination becomes free." - tincek-marincek

Comments For Comments is a bi-monthly activity held within the group. Each month one submission from each member will be placed in the Comments for Comments folder at random.

Update (December 17): Alright guys, I've decided to make some changes to the deadlines for sending in gifts since a lot of people have had complications with the dates o__o I'm allowing you to send them in ALL THE WAY from the 21st to the 28th; so that gives you some time after X-mas in case you're traveling. Still, it's preferrable you get it done on Christmas or close to it >u>; Procedure is still the same. The earliest you're allowed to post it is the 21st. And then you send me a link, I post it on a journal (I might post it up later because I'm traveling on the 21st) and you also send one to your recipient If you have any questions, PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK WITH ME!
