Journal Entry: Fri Jul 18, 2014, 10:34 AM

I will update this regularly as new events come and go. So if you know of anything going on or have an event you'd like featured please let me know!

Two Thousand Words Project

:icontwothousandwords:

Two Thousand Words 2014:

"Two Thousand Words is an art and literature collaborative project, where artists and writers get to work together. Last round the writers went first and wrote up drafts and synopses, which the artists looked over and chose a project they wanted to create artwork for. This round however is going to be a reverse round. Meaning that now the artists are going to come up with their art first, and writers will choose something that inspires them to write an accompanying story or poem!"

6 deviants said Oh, look it's a flower.It's not the street I usually go down, but for some reason that day I turn down a different road.
It seems strange doesn't it? the fact that doing the same thing every day, breeds someone to do things they shouldn't. It makes a person question life on the other side, tarnishing their good rep over something small and incoherent to their values and moral standards. This is a quandary, one that sits ever well inside my heart as I step softly from the pavement to the dirt.
These steps take me passed a few trees, this poses as odd to me. In a forest with only a few trees, it seems more like an orchard. A small one at that, but who cares really about such details.
Delicately, I pluck a small apple off of the tree. It is not round like the others. It is unique, and special. I refuse to eat it, so I simply place it in my backpack and continue. The apple bounces back and forth in my back and I realize it will bruise and be unimportant to me at that point. I reach into my bag and pull it out. I

5 deviants said A Walk around the Writer's BlockIt's not the street I usually go down, but for some reason, that day I turned down a different road.
The twisted black shadows of trees played like lattice work on the cobblestone floor. I didn’t bother looking back to see the other path; I was all too familiar with it already.
Besides, it lead to a house full of blank white pages and crumpled quill pens.
I didn’t want to deal with that right now. The whiteness reminded me of a gleaming teeth, faintly yellowed, juxtaposed next to black ink.
The ink were hollow, staring eye sockets, I imagined.
I shuddered at the thought.
The shadows playing on the ground suddenly struck me similar to a rib cage, but what did the coiling black bones protect?
A twinkling laugh, like the sparkling of stars made my vision rise from the ground. A lovely woman, dressed in a cream colored frock waved her greeting to me.
I felt myself turn rosy and gave her my greetings. She went on her way, doing her best not to laugh.
I couldn’t blame her.

Damn, I love this group. There's always something happening in here. The idea of "Pass the poem project" is simply awesome. Eagerly waiting for it to begin.

Keep up the good work you guys. Your hard work in maintaining this wonderful group is very clearly evident and I for sure hugely appreciate it. Clap

Good afternoon,
This Group is full of very talented Writers! I offer you the opportunity to spread the word and translate your poetry/prose. Thus, your art will become more comprehensible even for people who don't speak English very well. I am a university student of Translation and Interpreting, so if you're interested in translating your art, feel free to contact me. I can translate into French, Italian and Spanish.
Best wishes,
Fabiana

Hi guys. Trying to submit my first ever prompt response. Literally first ever. And the folder claims my submission would exceed the limit of one every seven days. How is this possible? I haven't submitted anything yet, so how have I exceeded my limit?
