Innovation for Writers
There have always been a lot of writers on deviantART begging for more recognition. It's understandable that literature is given a lower priority: as I'm writing this, there are 3,280 "Writers" online, which compared to the 10,671 "Artists" is a relatively small community. So all of us writers whine about how we never get "the attention that we deserve." There are plenty of stamps declaring, "Writers are artists too!" and all that sort of thing. But we never really get anywhere.
Well let's get serious, people.
deviantART easily has the most impressive coding I've ever seen. And the latest updates of the message centre, notes and v7 were stunning. So much is possible; it's time to give writers the edge.
When deviantART's Portfolio feature was released, it stated:
"Some people ask if Portfolio supports Literature, Film or Flash Animations. Unfortunately these formats are not yet supported, but we are working hard to make sure to support these media in the future with presentation formats

Vijayendra Mohanty
I am the thinker of thoughts that choose me. I am the teller of stories that make me their teller. I am, otherwise, just a name, just a body, and a lot of labels.
I find too many people confusing art with craft. So I figured I will write a little note about it. I am not suggesting that there are actually works out there that are not art in any sense at all. I believe everything is art in some way or the other. The point I am trying to make is that what many of us often praise as being artistic is only good craftsmanship. To be art, things need meaning.

The artist seeks meaning in the world around him and tries to express it with his work. She may choose to do this with a painting, or a work of fiction or a song. There is no limit on how one chooses to express themselves. What binds all these endeavours together is the search for meaning. Meaning is the theme that is common to all art. What meaning is may differ from artist to artist but it is always there.

Being good at drawing is a craft, just like being good with words is. These are skills that one can learn and hone. But the quest for meaning is something, while being a common thread, is unique to every artist.

Being able to imitate nature accurately is not art, it is a skill. It makes you a craftsman, not a artist. You become an artist because of the reasons you do so.

Put some thought into it.
