How and Where to Submit Your LiteratureGallery Descriptions and Miscats Month
There are many ways of submitting your writing on DeviantArt, and in this article we're going to go right back to basics to ensure you can get your work to the best possible place it can be to attract the right audience.
How to Submit Writing to DeviantArt
Before we even get on to where to submit your literature, let's have a look at the various ways you can get your writing into the DeviantArt galleries. There's a number of ways to do this, each one is suitable for a different goal:
1. Sta.sh Writer
First on the list, and the best way to prepare your writing for submission to your gallery, is Sta.sh Writer. Be it a poem, a story, a character sheet, or even a journal, Sta.sh offers the most intuitive and flexible way to input text on DeviantArt.
Hover the cursor over the big 'SUBMIT' button, and you should see the link to Sta.sh displayed in a drop-down menu. From the right-hand side of the screen, loc
How to Write the Beginning of Your StoryWe all know the most important sentence in a story is the very first sentence. It has only one goal: to convince the reader to read the next sentence and then the next until they are fully immersed in your story.
The goal is simple, but executing the goal with success is a challenge we’ve all agonized over. It’s easy to obsess over the beginning and wonder if you’ve started in just the right place with the right scene or narration. Maybe it seems perfect to you, but beta readers tell you it’s not a good enough hook and you try to make it bigger and better, flashier and more action-packed.
The opening of a story doesn’t have to be flashy or be a big, attention-grabbing action scene. A good opening holds readers interest because it does one thing very well: it establishes the narrative urgency of the story. It immediately lets your readers in on the most important thing they need to understand in order for this story to take place, feel real, and becom

Underbelly Tycoon (Tips to get the rat mount)Blizzard made a sneak hotfix yesterday that made it no longer possible to get sightless eyes from killing players while in a raid group, just solo or 5-man.
Well, since when have I ever heard the word “can’t” and let it faze me?
Despite starting the day with 2k eyes on my looted count, I finished this achievement in a couple of raid groups. The first one wasn’t bad, but it disbanded after figuring it wasn’t worth continuing without being able to get the eyes from killing players, too.
The second group I started myself and maintained to my utmost.
It’s funny, but I really had to step into the “tycoon” shoes and lead, with patience and positivity, keep up the humor and morale. And it paid off, because I ended up retaining about a dozen or so core people despite the drifters in the finder.
MILLIONS of thanks to:
And many more, you were PHENOMENAL people!
Tags are the new KeywordsKeywords on deviations were built to be an important tool to help discover artwork. But as deviantART grows and strives to create new ways to discover great content, we’ve found that keywords as we currently use them have become underutilized. We think we can do better -- and can make a better experience for the community -- by making some changes.
In the coming month, keywords will transition into tags, and we’ll be improving the way they work. Tags will better surface artwork, allow deviants to form communities around topics, make it easier to find other artists and art appreciators, and increase discoverability.
For example, if you're a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles it can be difficult to know what to search for: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Turtles, TMNT, Donatello, etc. Public tags provide visibility to see how others are tagging their deviations, which will allow you to align your behavior to the norm, or ch

DeviantART is proud to announce our Premium Content Platform
Providing the ability for content creators to become sellers and generate real earnings by making digital files of their high-quality work available for download.
