Writers Resources Chat Rules

Tue Jan 16, 2018, 10:50 PM
    Hello fellow writer, and thank you for stopping by to read this. We are big believers in following the rules of this website to the best of our abilities, and we definitely promote DA policy. Our rules will essentially be no different from DA's. So I have listed some quick links if you would like to quickly get acquainted or refreshed on them. We want to provide a safe and fun atmosphere, so please help us to do this! 


What rules apply to the Chat Network? FAQ #287: What rules apply to the Chat Network?

DA's Etiquette Policy: Etiquette


WritersResources Chat Rules


    Since this is a writers chat and people come from all genres and walks of life. I ask that you respect their choice and not belittle them for it. Respect your fellow artists and writers and I would ask that you please conduct yourselves responsibly. 

Pencil Keep Discussion Clean
Please keep discussions as clean as possible. We can have mature discussions but please refrain from overuse of strong language and sexual content. Keep it about pg-13 if you can help it.

Pencil Sharing Personal Info & Staying Safe Online
Please be remember that this is the internet, and we can't truly know who we are talking with. Use common sense when talking with others. Share personal information at your own risk. I do not promote it, but I can't stop you. If you want to learn more about protecting yourself online read 
Beware What Information You Share With Others.

Pencil No Spamming or Flooding
No spamming or flooding the chat. This is just no fun for any of us and we can't be productive this way. So I ask you to please not spam.

Pencil No Callouts or Harassment

Please do not use the chatroom for callouts, or harassment. We will not tolerate this and take appropriate action.

Pencil Advertisement
You are allowed to advertise commissions and collaborations. Ask for requests, or advertise contests, and raffles as long as you do not flood the network. I would ask that you put a 10-minute timer on it.

Pencil Discussion of Your Own Work
You are allowed to get together with others and discuss your works in chat. 

Pencil Artwork Sharing and Feedback Requests
You are allowed to share your artwork here as well as long as it pertains to your literature or stories. We want to foster creativity and encourage you to develop your worlds completely. You may ask for feedback on it as well, although please remember this chat is devoted to literature.

Pencil Mature Deviations
You can share any literature here. I ask that you follow DA policy. If you are asking for critiques on material that fall under mature audiences, please warn people ahead of time. On mature deviations when asking for feedback that we remain professional and not let the discussions become inappropriate. In fact, I encourage feedback for sexual themes to be done in the comments of the actual work rather than in the chat. So that we protect our minors and avoid offending someone. If this becomes a problem, I may disallow these pieces to be brought up in the chatroom. I don't know how DA handles romance or erotica works, but I would suggest possibly handling feedback outside the chat.

Pencil Political Pieces
If you have a political piece and want feedback for a college or school assignment. You are welcome to share it. I ask that if someone shares this, that instead of turning it into a political debate we make it an exercise like in the colleges and just critique the paper, give feedback, and help the person write a stronger argument. (I've done this for people of opposing views. If I can remain objective in writing, I can expect you to learn how to do so as well.) Let's keep it civil. If it becomes a problem in the future. I will disallow political pieces or school work assignments.

Pencil Providing Feedback and Critiquing
When providing feedback, please respect the individual and provide a positive and healthy atmosphere. We all want to grow and thrive, not wilt and die. It is your responsibility to own your feelings. If you aren't ready for detailed feedback and critiques or are easily discouraged and hurt I would ask that you ask for soft critiques or feedback. Let people know your warming up to this still.

   
    Like always if you have problems, suggestions, or feedback please let a moderator know via note. Note Us
    
    Thank you again for participating in WritersResources we appreciate you taking the time to read this.

So Lame *Face Palm*

Tue Jan 9, 2018, 7:35 PM
    So I was talking to a friend of mine on here. She had made a drawing on her phone. Which then for some reason I don't know why I forgot till then, that we lost our phone to the tub. Probably becuase my husband is a phone hog... Its covered under warrenty so I just have to make a call and have a new one approved. I don't know when we will be getting a new phone, but till then... Now I really have no way to upload any artwork. So... Sorry guys. :/ I barely have a computer, no phone now, and no scanner. Wow I kind of feel like its impossible to replace stuff. How does anyone afford to live. We barely scape by. We don't use credit cards, we only use what money we have on our bills and food and its toast. Poof gone. I have to ask for assistance from our church for diapers. How do you guys manage? I guess most of you probably are still in high school and live at home though. Any of you out on your own?

Update: I have a phone but limited internet access at the moment. Something bad happened to my computer while fixing it. I may be a week or so. No worries I be back as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Ringing In The New Year With Art!

Thu Jan 4, 2018, 8:10 PM
   So I had a brilliant idea and posted up a comparison thread in the forums. Found here: forum.deviantart.com/showcase/… I wanted to inspire people to not beat themselves up about their art. If your one of those people who do this, cheer up! Everyone starts somewhere. Everybody who posted to this thread also wants to cheer you on! We all want to change the way people think! Everyone is at different stages of their artistic journey, and whether or not you are a professional or just starting out if you are making progress however small it is, it's still progress. It's a perspective thing! (Juicy Art Pun. I totally went there.) Before we can go any further, if any of you have anything negative to say, I please ask you to remove yourself. Thank you.

   This is from me to you. Just look how embarrassing it is! lol Anyway, I'm still proud of it. That was me in 98 verses 08. Sorry I had a bit of dyslexia on the image. I put 89 but I was born in 89. Doesn't makes sense huh. lol

Some great advice from our next artist. Using your tool box to effectively create your vision.
:iconoliverink: "My fiance was kind enough to introduce me to several artistic effects and other things which I now focus on when doing things such as shadowing, specifically to make things pop off the page and not keep a cut and paste look.
I also like to take my time adjusting colors and hues, as well as mainly try to come up with a variety of aspect combinations that compliment what imagination has brought to mind."

What to Expect!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 1, 2018, 2:22 PM
Okay everyone heads up! I'm going to be super busy with the opening of the new year. I have tons of plans for both my groups and some features I plan to open the new year up with. I posted on the forums two separate threads. One for people to post their friends work and another comparison art thread to help people feel better about their progression. (Promoting healthy thinking in 2018)

So here is a list of to-do's for me and I apologize if I slack on responses. 

Network-With-Us

- Planning on having two interviews coming up. One in January and one in February.
- Will be looking for active contributors to upload theirs and others works. And help monitor folders and help improve the group.
- Will be looking to affiliate with more groups or people to promote new and undiscovered deviants. 

WritersResources

- Possible chat room coming up. *WIP*
- Possible member folder for feedback.
- Will be looking for admins. Refer to the journal:  Group News Update Group Journal is now updated to seeking admins and contributors.
- More affiliations with other groups that help writers or exposure.
- Come back from Hiatus and start posting more resources from my bookmarks and Pinterest.

Here's my personal list of things to do here. I'm feeling kind of behind and discouraged but I'll pull out of it.

My List:

- Backup and Wipe and Reload Laptop to see if I can nurse it along. I'll be doing this very soon so expect a blackout period.
- Take down my Christmas Tree. I always leave it up until the new year.
- Finish unfinished Christmas Presents for the family. Send them out late. T.T *sniffle* I couldn't get the space I needed to work on my quilts.
- I have a to-do list on my page full of projects like stocking, designing a dress and such. Finish those even if they are out of season.
- Work on traditional and digital art skills.
- Come back from Hiatus and work on my series. Set down 2 hours a day for writing, research, and such.
- Start redoing some of my concept artworks.
- Finish working on a commission page inquiry: rules, guidelines, prices and such. *Still researching* May open commissions in the coming months keep an eye out for it.
- Find a way to obtain a new computer and a scanner. :/ Stuff is dying. If you want to donate to my fund I would very much appreciate it! 
ko-fi.com/ladyseshiiria
- Find a camera or a webcam or figure out how to use this onboard cam in a way that will better suit possible tutorials. *Tutorial research. If I can't get what I need I may just find a way to load or redirect people to good resources.*

Digital Art and Art Goals

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 22, 2017, 10:35 PM

If I could choose a style that I want to go after it would be any of these guys. Of course, I want my own distinct style but this is the quality I want. I'm going to try to make it a habit to sit down at least once a week and work on this, for next year. I'm starting now though...

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I just want to thank all of you for an amazing end of the year finish! As a reminder if you want to join my contest here  Teaser Feature and Points ContestOkay, so do you remember this journal post here: Break Out The Champagne I wanted to celebrate but I couldn't get enough people to answer back on the poll to make a clear decision. So I decided instead to make the decision to share a small work in progress from my writing. Which can be found here: Chapter 1 Teaser Don't be too harsh on it, it's like crazy unpolished and basic. It's pre-first draft. Though critiques would be very appreciated. Enjoy!

Bad News

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 20, 2017, 8:39 PM
    I've got some bad news everyone. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer here.  I'm not sure how long my computer is going to last me. I have been telling people it's on its last leg. Well, I started noticing some serious problems with it this afternoon while looking up recipes in my bookmarks. My computer is locking up really bad.
    
    So the thing is this computer sounds awful, it's loud. I know for a fact it's over heating as well.  I will admit this is my fault. I usually take excellent care of my electronics. So the reason my computer is in rough shape is because of me, but not without good cause. You see a year ago I dropped it. My son was getting into something he shouldn't have. I won't bore you with the details. The thing is as a responsible parent you choose your kids over your possessions. Possessions are replaceable and children are not.
    
    So anyway, I had my laptop in bed with me and it ended up on the floor. Not much of a drop but enough to crack the case and bend the fan housing. Well over time shutting or opening the laptop has yielded more damage and eventually I had to stop closing it altogether to maintain some integrity. So fast forward to now. I'm starting to see some serious side effects. Things that can't be fixed with a simple wipe and reload or replacement of parts. So as a heads up if I'm not responding as fast or as usual this is why. Even still if I end up disappearing for a bit this will ultimately be the cause. So I'm sorry ahead of time! I have a phone but I share it with my husband so I definitely won't be as active when this kicks the bucket.

Watcher and Friend Appreciation

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 19, 2017, 2:40 PM
    Hey guys I just want to let you know how grateful I am for all of your support, comments, and faves! I've noticed a trend on here of ingratitude which makes me sad. Very Sad! I want to let you know if you thank me for faves, llamas,  or comments, I will never be mad at you. I am grateful that you spent the time to comment on my page.
    
    I'm not doing this to call anyone out or make them feel bad if they do, do this to keep the clutter down on their pages. I understand, it can be hard to respond to everyone and that may be why people have opted for it, But I have seen some downright rude things people post on here trying to keep their pages clean. Like threats of blocking and even rude comments about how people are dumb and can't read. The truth is, how many of us spend the time to read others comments on someone's page? We are more concerned usually about returning the love and support the individual.

    Anyway, I want to let people know, I don't condone it or support it. If I see people while searching around who have poor behavior as described above, I don't see them earning my support, no matter how good their artwork is.

    As for me, I'll set an example and say this. It's very hard to comment and respond to everyone, and I want you to know if I don't get back to you always, I'm not ignoring you! I appreciate your comments and support. I will try to always make it a priority to respond to comments bearing discussions or questions. Though if I don't always respond to comments like Nice! or Great Job! I want you to know that I have read them and I do appreciate them. I'll make it more of a habit to state thanks in journals.

    On another note, for multiple people on here who support me and constantly fav artworks. I'm sorry if I don't always say thank you in your comments section! With the magnitude of faves from certain individuals, I have found it easier to say thanks from time to time so that I don't spam the crap out of them! Know that I love you and appreciate you! All of you! Everyone! The best I can do to support my watchers and friends is to try my best to stay in communication with them, support your works, and run my groups to the best of my abilities! Always know if you have questions or need help I will do my best to assist you in any way I can.

  I felt like there are a few people I need to sponsor. Some of them, I've talked to and gotten to know, others have just stricken me with the power of their art! I was going to take a break from this for a while, but I feel like since its getting close to Christmas this would be a great way to inspire people, and spread love and holiday cheer.

  Plus doing these cheers me up! :) I like seeing people respond to these and find others to talk too and befriend. 

  Please check out :icon100millionpoints: She is a very generous person, if you need points or are looking to sponsor other artists this is another great place to go. She was kind and gave me some points to put towards our super group for :iconwritersresources:

:iconpeeterora1: This is some amazing and striking artwork to me! It's not often that I get to see something like this. So I wanted to share it with you guys! Give them a watch!

    "Well," Xerix muttered to himself ruefully as he trudged doggedly through a snowbank "this is probably the quietest snowstorm I've ever been in."
    The giant fluffy flakes of snow gently floated downwards in nearly straight lines with no wind to disturb them, almost making the traveller feel as if he were walking through curtains of soft clouds whenever there was a break in the foliage overhead. The forest itself was eerily quiet; all sound was instantly muffled by the snowflakes in the air, making the Xerix feel like he was the only being in existence as he slowly crunched his way through the underbrush.
    However tranquil the storm was, Xerix still felt like cursing it. The men he had been tracking for almost six days had been exceptionally hard to follow before, but now he had absolu

    "#$%^!"
    The crude word sounded strange and foreign on the young girls' tongue, jarring William from his thoughts abruptly.
    Hey, enough of that. I've got enough on my mind right now without you cursing all the time.
    "Oh, Sorry."
    The girl shook her head, kicking idly at a rock as they wandered down the dirt path. Her dark blue-black skin shone a bit as the high afternoon sun beat down upon their heads, a trickle of sweat running it's way down her neck to soak into the filthy torn fabric that had once been a very expensive set of clothing. Now the tunic and trousers hung to her young frame like moss on a stone, torn and frayed all over.
    William panted as they marched on, the heat pressing down on his small furry body like an anvil. He paused and sniffed at the side of the road,

What To Expect

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 5, 2017, 1:08 PM
    Other than the To-Do List on my front page, I want to let you know what I am up to for the holiday season. As you know I am working on several holiday projects. Well, more than several. You can expect things to be uploaded from time to time as they become finished. I've become very busy, to say the least. So I apologize in advance if you are trying to get ahold of me or if your comments or activity on my profile seem to go unnoticed. 

    Aside from what is already in the works or is planned. I will try to upload a few more art pieces from my portfolio. I also have some fashion sketches in the works. I'm planning on eventually making some of these, I just need to get the funds available. (Haha yeah right XD Good Luck with that!)

    Anyway, I also have one last thing I need to tell you. I have some main characters I need to post that are from my story. I'm a little nervous though. As I've gone around I've noticed that the way I've designed them they look unoriginal and derivative. Which makes me sad. I don't spend a lot of time looking at character art myself for those reasons. Nor do I watch a lot of anime or read comics. A lot of what I draw off of is fashion in the real world. I try to create my own designs. I've come to terms that as an artist most everything has been done and or copied. So it's hard to be original. I've picked up this thought process from my writing.

    So here comes the unveiling of one of four main protagonists. A female. (I chose my username on here for a reason. I was branding my story and universe.) So keep an eye out for LadySeshiiria. Her name is subject to change in the final draft, though.

Trying To Be Professional

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 5, 2017, 12:09 PM
   I'm not going to name names, but I have been talking with someone for a few days and it went from pleasant conversation to weird really quickly. I just want everyone to know though you may know my name, I do not give out personal information like addresses and phone numbers. I ask that people respect this. If you want to send gifts, money is preferred. There is a ko-fi account here: ko-fi.com/J3J260VV for doing that. 
   
  I bring this to your attention because one should never assume this is a safe place to be. The internet is not a great place. There are tons of great and good people on here. For all, I know this person was being nice. It is bad practice to assume that it is safe to share information like personal addresses, phone numbers, and bank accounts. 

  The reason I blocked them was that I made a firm stance and politely declined. They decided to become manipulative with me by using a certain sympathy tactic. I will not go into details on what was said. This person is also shopping for a girlfriend which makes the situation doubly weird. For me, this is a red flag. Looking on a site like this puts a red flag up for me, asking for addresses seconds this.

   Please be safe while using the internet and social media. I want to promote professional and safe internet practices. If you have questions about how to become safer online, or what to watch for with others, please don't hesitate to ask me!  I know there are a lot of you who may be afraid to talk to your parents about certain subjects, I've been there and done that. As a parent myself I can give you some guidance.

Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!

I'm made it 100 watchers! And to top it I'm made it to 10,000 views! I need to celebrate! Thank you guys for all of your support, I really do appreciate it! I think its more important to have a few dedicated watchers than to have a ton of page views of course, but I also think its important for an artist to reach their audience. If any of you have questions about how to reach your audience or build a better profile, I can certainly shoot you a few tips. I've definitely learned a lot and I don't want to squander it!

  For those of you who are supporting me and sending in points and donations, I am greatly indebted to your kindness! I wish you a Merry Christmas, Yule, Holiday! Thank you!

   Now, this situation poses a question. What should I do to celebrate? Should I do a piece of artwork? What kinds of things would you guys like to see? ladyseshiiria.deviantart.com/j… I have a poll up if you haven't taken it that asks this question. It's called: What kinds of things would you like to see more from me? It will give me a good idea of what to try to shoot for. At least whatever may be feasible for now.

   I'm going to add 2 more items to that list. Since there isn't any room on there I'm posting it here. If you would like to see a small sample excerpt from my WIP story post a comment here!

  The second thing, to reward my friends and watchers lets have a contest. Send in two pieces of your best work and I will do a random draw and whoever wins will be featured in a journal. You have until Christmas to send in your artwork. Just link the thumbnails here to enter!

    "Don't forget to send in your art for a Feature!"
