I provided "working examples," which might make the codes easier to understand because you can see them in action. (Keep in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until AFTER you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible for the purpose of demonstration.) Enjoy!!!
The following codes can be used in
comments, deviation descriptions, journals, and profile page widgets.

This will also make bold text.

WELCOME TO THE V CHALLENGE FOR WRITERS
ON MY ART...
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
~ Walt Disney
"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."

Please include "Let me dream ~ V Challenge for writers link/thumb" in your description.
WHERE TO ENTER
Submit your story
For anyone who knows how to write (and I mean, REALLY knows how to write), you understand that a good story has everything written out on paper first. You know, stuff like Outlines, Plot Triangles, Character Profiles. This might be of a challenge to some of you and tie you down, but unless you are capable of keeping every piece of information in your mind, this is a good resource to fall back on. If you do not need this, then fineyou arent required to use it. According to Science Fiction Writers of America, do character sketches and plot summaries but do not let yourself be locked in by your planning documents.
In time, I will devise a website that will help more than just creating your character. On said site, I will post other outlines that will help YOU with YOUR writing, along with some very useful information.
Why were you the only person in the Moon Dorms that was not a part of the Night Class? Why were you placed into dorms with people you hardly ever saw; when you were in class they were asleep, and vice versa?
It was all confusing to you, but you just remained silent and went with it- it was the Chairman's request after all, who were you to question his choice? You were just the new girl.
You had pored over these thoughts for the past month, never reaching an answer. Every time you had decided to confront the leader of the dorm, Kaname Kuran, your resolve had withered under his gaze. You admitted that you were attracted the boy, but there was something about him- about all the Night Class- that was just...off.
Deciding that your seatin
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
"You're so blind Ludwig! People are DYING!" (Name) yelled at her husband for the hundredth time. What happened to him? To THEM? He had been so kind, so loving. Now he was a monster. Proudly showing off the red piece of death fabric tied around his bicep. They were the perfect couple. Walking their dogs in the park, sharing ice cream, now they did nothing but fight. " For a better tomorrow! Don't you understand woman!? You're the blind one! Don't you see how wonderful this could be for us!? For the world! Who cares if a f
(1) submit it directly through dA through "submit art"
(2) submit with a .pdf (I tried submitting with a Word doc and it didn't work like it should).
(3) submit it through Sta.shWriter
If you choose to directly submit it through "Submit Art", it's pretty simple (I know this looks like a lot of steps, but they're necessary to make this easy):
Hover over the "Submit" link at the top of your DeviantArt page. This will give you the option of "Submit Art" or "Stash" as your first 2 options. Select "Submit Art". This will give you a "Submission Screen". You have the option of clicking on "Choose a file to upload" or dragging and dropping a document onto the screen where it says "drag and drop your art here". If you use these options, you can use a Word document, but like I said, it doesn't work like it should. You must add a preview pic and your readers will only be able to see the preview pic, and in order
This character profile template was made by compiling a whole lot of templates made by other artists that I felt were not specific enough and adding many more questions to make everything more specific. The links are in the description, please visit their versions too. This profile is ginormous, not every question may be relevant to your character. The main goal is to have a profile that is as complete as it can get, so not every question will need to be filled in. Add and remove as is needed as there's only few characters every question is relevant for. If you think questions should be added, comment and suggest! There also exists a html file on pastebin for mobile users which can be found here.
Everyone was talking witchcraft in the village. The Widow Ashe had been missing for almost a week now and though hunting parties were sent out many times to search for her nothing was ever found. The minister of your small village preached long, arduous sermons about the sins of the fathers and demons of hell coming in the rapture to collect the souls of the dammed. Of course your parents were convinced it was all because of your idle nature and lashed out at you so frequently that for a time you were afraid to even sleep for fear of being idle.
Then the children of the town began to complain that a tall man with eyes red as the Devil’s watched them from outside their windows as they lay to sleep. Though many tried to remedy this with blessings and heavy curtains, it did nothing to deter their nighttime visitor.
“Why must you sin so often?” your father would bell
"(Name) look out!"
You spun around at the sound of Dean's voice, just in time to get punched in the stomach with enough force to send you flying. Your back slammed into a tree, sending snow and pine needles tumbling down onto you. You landed in a heap in a snowdrift, gasping for air.
"(Name)!" You heard Sam yell from somewhere in front of you, followed by the sound of a gunshot.
You groaned, pushing yourself to your feet just as Dean slid to a stop beside you.
"Are you okay?" He asked, grabbing your arms.
You shrugged him off, nodding. "I'm fine. What are you doing kneeling in the snow? You're going to freeze."
He laughed, helping you to your feet. "I'm too hot to freeze." He smirked, brushing snow off his jeans.
You smacked the back of his head, grabbing Ruby's knife from the back of your pants and throwing it to your right without taking your eyes off him. "You say that now, but you've never felt a Canadian winter before."
The demon Sam was wrestling with
you open your heart
and let in the universe -
the fabric of humankind is a connection
one we must offer, reach out for;
we are not lonely souls
we are, in fact, determined to do better
and touch the hearts that are around us,
because who we are is defined
not but the lining in our pockets
but the love we put in each other's hands
if you were a child like me,
you were taught the stars hold more than fire
that hundreds of thousands of liv
