Thursday: One Word Contest!

Thu Apr 25, 2013, 1:25 PM


Congratulations to our haiku winners from last week. Even with a short amount of syllables, you described your best adventure epically!

:trophy: Our top five winners are:

Holiday with friends.
My first time away from home.
I want to go back.

Laying there dying
flat lining, Heartbeat, eyes wide
Tears of Happiness

Summer in Sweden
in the lemur enclosure:
sudden jump and squeal

Knee-deep island mud -
crocs, noodles, four days of rain;
Hike, turn, hike again.
by slightlymighty

day with no curfew!
haunted house, pizza, and friends.
never felt more free!

Congratulations! You will be receiving your Points shortly. 

For this week, we're all about simplicity. We're going to harness our inner zen and let your imagination do the rest. :meditation:

We're going to give you just one word, and from that word, your challenge is to create a deviation based on that word. 

Your word is:

:star: Heal :star:

What comes to your mind when you hear 'heal'? What does healing look like to you? What deviation could you create about healing? 

Please also include that your entry is for :devpremiummembers: in the description. Otherwise, your piece may be mistakenly denied!

The theme must be included somehow in your entry! Feel free to enter old works that also fit the theme. Enter as many times as you'd like! All mediums are accepted.

We'll choose three winners who will receive a deviantART Messenger Bag of your choice! (subject to availability) Winners will be chosen based on creativity, visual impact, and inclusion of the theme. All entries must be submitted by Tuesday, April 30 at 11:59 PM PDT and must be submitted to the One Word Contest Gallery

There's only one word to focus on this week -- heal -- so make sure to incorporate it well in your piece! Submit it to the One Word Contest Gallery for a chance to win! :onfire:

This was fun. ;P I enjoyed the story I got from the prompt, and I love seeing the work everyone else is putting out. Suggestion. If you can, it would be awesome for this prompt/deviation (And the other prompts that have their own gallery) to be included at the head of the Gallery (So that one doesn't have to dig through the Journal to find the prompt that begat the Gallery, or click through all the Deviations in the hopes that someone 'happened' to link it.)

As a second idea, for those entries that 'have' a deviation as a part of them, it would be awesome if they all had galleries, and to keep some semblance of order in the Main Gallery, it could either be Tiered Competitions > Year > Month > Competition Names (Which by itself would also help to 'find' the Journal the matches it), or Just by the Years. And of course the way the Gallery Folders work, there's no reason this couldn't be done "In Addition" to featuring the Ones that are "Current" or "Of Particular Interest". ;P

A haiku is a format for writing that originated from Japan.
The format goes like this:

No problem, I had to say something... I haven't been clinically dead (as far as I know), but... well, you're a Transformers fan, let's just say that all of my friends have nicknamed me "Wheeljack" ;)

Yep. Plenty of times I've been scraped, burned, shocked with potentially lethal currents while working on my projects... And the occasional time that I've woken up on the floor of the shop wondering what the heck happened, which is why I say "as far as I know" I've never been clinically dead. Anyway, I've loved Transformers since I was a kid too... What's your favorite series?

Oh wow those had to of been some scary moments for sure. I love the original G1 series the best the new Transformers Prime is actuality not to bad either but I love the classics lol. what about you?

Breaking boundaries with new technology that can go wrong at any time is sometimes scary, but not as scary as the thought of me living in a future without new technology... The formal education system is killing the spirit of discovery, and I object to people running down the future! I'm going to be spending the rest of my life there! (I think this is why my friends call me Wheeljack, haha)

My favorite is the G1 series... Despite all the continuity errors, I thought the simple plot in each episode was always something interesting. There weren't a lot of episodes with the same thing happening over and over. TF Prime has a good plot and awesome special effects, TF Cybertron was great too... TF Animated drives me nuts to no end! I'm a mechanical engineer (you probably figured that out already) and I HATE the structurally unstable designs and the use of the word "servo" to refer to every mechanical part the script writers didn't know the name of! A servo is not a hand, it is not a foot, it is a special electric motor with a specific type of circuit board used to control it! Jeez people, get it right! :shakefist:

As far as I know then all can take part of it, even people who aren't premium members. But I might be wrong.
