Some Beautiful Comments About My Work

See all of my precious reviews here :blowkiss:

... Speech Bubble by socksyy"You are without-a-doubt one of the most impressive writers I've had the pleasure to read from. As a young writer myself, I look up to you and your beautiful usage of words." - RebbleDiamonds

... Speech Bubble by socksyy"heartbreakingly beautiful. Just raw and honest and everything that makes reading poetry worthwhile." - Flermigan

... Speech Bubble by socksyy"Honest, economic, filled with verbal realism, and pitch perfect. Sensational work." - Dmofosho

... Speech Bubble by socksyy"this is Ginsberg for the 21st Century." - exquisiteoath

My Groups

Groups I Contribute To / Own

Check them out by clicking the avatar or the name!
We'd love to have you involved :love:



A group for the lit community, by the lit community! An attempt to re-establish old community ties from the days of #LitLove but also to evolve with DeviantART and to try and be the most useful group it can be! Suggestions, feedback and volunteers all welcome - as well as you're lovely literature!

A group that encourages people to reach out and build support networks. We have a chatroom here and we try to provide a safe, supportive environment in our group and chat for everyone.

A group that collects all kinds of visual arts in square formats! It's really that simple but I love it.

This group was a collection point for the project positivity collages but now lies dormant waiting for something positive and powerful that will contribute to our community. If you have ideas, hit me with 'em!


Eternal Features

I am delighted to have some of my RL best friends here on DeviantART. These people keep me alive and kicking every day (often against my will) so if you wanna meet these beautiful souls please be kind to them as I am very protective!


Some of the people who I hold deep in my heart, those who inspire me and my work or who just make my life more bearable. <3


Hey Beautiful!

You don't need to say thanks!

It's so sweet of you to drop by to say thanks for faves, watches, llamas.. but you really don't need to thank me.

I favourite works that I like so I can see them again in the future, or so I can create feature journals (if I feature you deviantART will notify you!)

I watch people for all kinds of reasons. I might just wanna see your future art, journals, collections.. I might just think you're funny or cool.. or sometimes if I see someone giving really thoughtful feedback to literature or photography (my two main loves on here) I watch them to see if they contribute art to the site later on. Because often people with the most constructive feedback apply it to their own work and have beautiful works to show. So even if you have nothing in your gallery yet, if I'm watching you thats for my own reasons and you don't have to thank me OR reciprocate.

I give people llamas mainly if I see them being a good community member. Good, thoughtful comments on literature are my soft spot so if you are a lit lover, that's probably where its from. I also try to return any llamas I get.

SO, all of these things are for me! You don't need to say thank you. Just go be a wonderful, thoughtful, inspired deviant and I hope to talk to you properly soon!

If you have a question, thought, or just wanna chat feel free to leave a comment though.. but be warned I am a full-time student and an officer within my Uni's SU so sometimes it might take me a while to reply!

Occasionally I'm helpful. Sometimes. Sorta. These might be those times. You'll have to read them to find out.

How to Improve Your WritingHow to improve your writing
In 2013 I wrote an article called How to get more views on your Literature. I wanted to give actual practical advice from people who know, writers established in the DA lit community.The article was (and still is) very popular and seems to have helped a lot of folks so I decided to tackle a different (but way more important question)... how can we make our writing the best it can be?
Because it's great to show work to your friends but self improvement, or working towards a goal (for a lot of us that's a writing career, a novel, publication, competitions etc) is a whole different thing. So I asked some of DA's finest to spill the beans and answer those commonly asked questions 'How did you get so good?' 'Will I ever be able to write like this?' and 'Hi, is this Dominos?' (wrong number).
In How to get more views... I prom
How to get more views on your LiteratureHow to get more views on your Literature
    This article is an exploration of a common question on DeviantART in the Literature community; "How do I get more views?" If you read all of this you win a pony.
    Lately there has been a lot of discussion around the site about ways to expand the literature community and the visibility of literature on the site. It has been noted that a lot of people believe that site changes by the DeviantART team will help them get more attention for their work. It has also been noted in the past that when new features are instigated (such as more html, better thumbnails and stash) that people often interpret whether or not they have a direct positive effect on their own views as a way of telling if the new feature is worthwhile or not.
    It has been suggested that the community and individuals therein should themselves take more responsibility for creating opportunities and maximising poten
How to write poetryAlright, the title is misleading. No one can tell you how to write poetry, but I am going to share what I feel are the important aspects to writing something that will actually touch other people.
What makes a good piece of poetry?
Some people's eyes are automatically drawn to spelling and punctuation. It's the first thing they look for when they read something. I'm not one of those people. Spelling and punctuation are tools to help you communicate yourself effectively, but whether you spell it right or not, if someone knows what you are trying to say, you have suceeded.
People write poetry for many different reasons. I know people who spend weeks crafting their words into a piece that they are happy with, that follows rules of form and flow. They write to have written, to create something beautiful. If you are one of those writers, I can't help you here. But you can learn everything you need to know from a technical dictionary. Stephen Fry's An Ode Less Travelled is a great pla
