Critmas 2020 is Coming

"But All Hallow's Tales was only a few weeks ago, and I just started my Bearing Witness entry!" you say. Well, I'm very much in favor of keeping up Halloween decorations until December 24th, but this is our first year on Eclipse and we'd like Critmas to go as spiffingly as ever. WHAT IS CRITMAS? Bask in triumph (and prizes) as you lead your team to victory by racking up the most critiques AND bonus challenges from December 24th through January 6th. We might ask you to incorporate dinosaurs in your critique, find a work themed around eyeballs - to keep track of challenges, make sure you're watching the @CRLiterature blog through this event. Critmas is open to everyone, so if you're a visual artist, don't be shy! WHAT CAN I DO? Thanks for asking! There are several things we'd love your help with this year. Help us promote Critmas!

The Meat of the Matter: Creating Characters

Creating characters is my absolute favourite part of the writing process. I thrive on the sheer number of paths you can take to create just one character with their personalities, traits, quirks, wants and needs, back stories - the list is endless! But dreaming up one isn't just about hair length, eye colours, if they are left handed or right handed. They need to be more than their physical presence, and I know not everyone may think that an infinite number of ideas is as much fun, so let's take a look at a couple things that can be considered when you're creating a character. What is the most important thing about this character that you wa

Squanpie's DD Suggestion Guidelines

Hi, I’m squanpie (https://www.deviantart.com/squanpie)  a Community Volunteer for literature. This means I have the honour of choosing Daily Deviations. But I need your help! The lit gallery is huge and I can’t possibly read everything. So I need you, the community, to send me awesome suggestions. :la: FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation? “An assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff and volunteer members who wish to showcase work they have found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.” It's not an award. It means a work gets displayed site-wide for one

Contact Light

There is a shiver along my circuitry when he comes in to check on me. I hear my gears whirr faster, but only for a moment, before my system re-adjusts their speed. I watch him from the corner of my eye, the task before me boring, monotonous, while he is exciting, lively. Lively. I run the word through my processor, its meaning sparking along my wires, slithering between my circuit board. He stops in front of me, glasses falling against the bridge of his nose. He scribbles something on the clipboard he is holding and I watch as the ligaments and muscles flex in his arm. I rotate my vision down to my own arms, similar in design, but slimmer, m
