We all prefer certain genres of writing and storytelling. For some writers, however, this preference goes beyond mere interest and becomes a specialty, a sole interest, and a experience that makes the writer an authority in the subject. The only problem with this is that niche writers often become repetitive and develop their works in a way that makes readers feel like reading one work by the author is enough to get a feel for everything they've written. Today, I'm going to give some tips for making your niche into something dynamic that keeps the interest of your readers.
Tip 1: Create foundations and rise from them.
Though I do not claim to already be any sort of top-tier exp
Not going to be on going to be on much for a whileHi, I am not going to be on much for a while. I have a lot going on right now, all good I might add. I will check in every few days and will be sure to try to keep up with deviations etc.More Like This

Love DeathMore Like This
by Tricia Pattinson
If saving Mother Earth
Came at my life's expense
I'd love death!
Burn my flesh
Replenish at my grave
My death, a cradle for hope
Or throw my ashes to the wind
A flight to save the World
On the wounds I'd fall like a kiss
Scheduled Maintenance and Read-Only ModeMore Like This
DeviantArt will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Monday, July 27th from approximately 10:00 PM to 11:59 PM Pacific.
During this time, DeviantArt.com and the DeviantArt Mobile App will be in read-only mode — you'll be unable to submit, comment, or +fav deviations (or take other actions that require being logged-in.) However, you'll still be able to browse and search the site, and we encourage you to find and share artwork that you enjoy, bringing attention to artists you love!
This scheduled maintenance will allow us to test changes to our backend systems to make DeviantArt faster and more reliable. Rest assured that none of your data will be affected or lost during this time.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to providing you with an even better DeviantArt experience!
Update: DeviantArt's scheduled maintenance is now complete. Thank you for your patience and please commence DeviantArting!
Going Dark for a Week or SoMore Like This
Moving is upon us. I'll be without Internet Access until reconnected at the new place. Will be able to have limited access on my iPhone, but it isn't easy to do group work on the phone, so there will be a gap in some groups between when deviations are submitted and accepted; the same with join requests. Other groups have active admins, so there shouldn't be an issue. Anyhoo, so long for now and I'll see you on the other side of moving half way across the great state of Ohio!

We weep; we say good bye
We linger in our memories
Intwinings of personal reality
Like threads keep together
Tunnels deep inside hide treasures
We meet; we say hello
We come together
In Shangra LaMore Like This
In Shangra La
by Tricia Pattinson
If I move to Shangra La
Winter in the Sun
Would you join me
In a wicker home?
Let the air flow
And all that wants
Forget the standards
Of a world at war
Ignore the metal phallics
Rockets wanting Moon
Leave alone the concrete
And petroleum's sticky blues
When we're ready - together
We'll migrate on
Find another patch of grassy
Where hard edges do not grow
A Sunday Morning in 33 A.D.You would think that finding a time machine would be the highlight of my day. Or my year. My life, even. But it won't be, actually.More Like This
Because depending on what I see today, my life will either be ruined… or launched. Because if I see what I came to see, then that will be a thousand times better than any time machine. And if I don't… if I don't…
I knew it would be a risk, coming to this year. To this day. But… I just have to know. As soon as I stepped inside of the machine, I knew that this would be my first stop. It was just going to happen. It had to.
Even before the doors reopen for me, I feel my inner demons screaming inside, doing everything possible to make me quit while I can. I still have time to back out, to run away, to decide that blind faith was better than being proved wrong. I hate being proved wrong. I can't stand being wrong.
My heart is pumping the fastest I've ever felt, and my pulse is ringing inside my ears with every beat.
Barley - HTTYDBarley shoved the giant paddle into the gaping maw of the brick oven, narrowing his eyes as waves of heat hit him squarely in the face. Squinting with satisfaction as he felt a new weight to the pole in his hands, he pulled it away and watched proudly as three browned barley loaves floated out on the surface of his paddle.More Like This
Silently congratulating himself on another well-baked batch, the viking boy tipped the bread onto the surface of a wooden table next to several other cooling pastries and pushed another three lumps of dough into the mouth of the blazing oven. When he turned to poke and prod his most recent achievements to check their quality, he was disappointed to find that one of the loaves was still surprisingly soft.
No matter, Barley told himself, brushing his mess of curly blond bangs out of his eyes. "Terry," he called cheerfully. "Tory, Tabby, Terragon-"
No sooner had the list of names started to leave his lips than several tiny, cat-sized dragons appeared in various corners
