Literary Terminology GuideLit Basics WeekMore Like This
This will be a straightforward article that lists some basic literary terms (in alphabetical order) that can be found in, well, literary works. You could use some of these terms to write a spectacular poem or prose piece about cake.

SixWordStories Contest ~ Win a 3 Month PM!UPDATE: Just under 10 days to get your entry in! If you have entered, please make sure your piece is in the folder!More Like This
A 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.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
Please support the contest and the article so that more can join in on the fun!

OFFICIAL RULES FOR TAILMOUTH ADOPTABLES(copy pasted from my FA journal here --> http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2286858/ )More Like This
I have had 7 notes and many many comments about this in the past week (are tailmouths making a comeback? hahah) so this calls for some clarification!
first of all, ANYONE CAN MAKE A TAILMOUTH, you don't have to ask me or show me or anything if you don't want. You can change anything you want. It doesn't have to have hair-ears, you don't have to call it a tailmouth, it can be anthro, it can be anywhere on the human-furry scale, it can be a transgender velociraptor for all I care.
Some people have started making tailmouth adoptables, which is totally cool by me! Go wild and do what you want, change what you want, charge what you want... so long as you drew them yourself.
Some people have been using my lineart for these tailmouth adoptables. This gets a little more tricky, so I am setting some rules for using my lineart for adoptables.
1) PLEASE DO NOT CHARGE MORE THAN $1 (or the equivalent in DA points

I know that now a lot of people take this negatively. But lately, I'm a little disappointed by stuff that appears on dA page.
It's like half of works are like a porn ... And I don't talk about nudes - I know what a good nude is.
But most of these uploads are just hard to watch ...
Maybe I must turn mature content on or something. But if I do - I will miss some great stuff from amazing nude photographers.

So I've been asked countless times to make a watercolor tutorial... and while I don't really have time to put that together right now (it's that crazy time of the semester) I did write out a few very basic tips regarding the nature of watercolor. I do plan on making an actual tutorial eventually as well, with pictures and more stuff about process. Perhaps this winter I can make a proper tutorial!More Like This
-Start with a ground wash at the beginning of painting something, with a high concentration of water. Starting with a light color base will help to unify the color scheme of the rest of the picture.
-Watercolor dries lighter than it looks when it's wet. Remember to keep this in mind. Gouache, on the other hand, dries darker. That's one of many things that makes combining gouache and watercolor tricky
-Work in layers, from light to dark. Don't expect to go straight from a white page to a dark color all at once! The darkest areas will come last.
-If you've got two areas of differ
