Happenings in the Literature Community

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 18, 2014, 10:35 AM

There are a lot of things going on in the literature community right now so I thought it would be a good idea to share these resources and events with you. 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!

The Scratching Post Edition 2: CritiquesTWM Scratching Post
:wave: hi there everyone! I’m Rose (aka InklingsOfOblivion) and today I bring you TWM’s latest edition of the Scratching Post which focuses on GIVING critiques.
Before we embark on our journey together, I’ve collected up some articles that have been written by others: what I love is that everyone has a slightly different take on critiquing , bringing a new perspective and fresh ideas to the table.

Literature Community Contests/Activities

:new: New Group ran by SetfiretotheOcean


Writing Resources

Live-Love-Write has a new program designed to provide participants with somebody they can count on for help and readership. Participants will be assigned in pairs, and each member in a pair will tutor and critique the other, help with inspiration and writing, and participate in monthly projects and contests.

A great group to check out, especially if you are low on prompt ideas. They have a large list of some here:…

The Literature Community Experiment
New to the literature community? Or perhaps you are just wondering who the community is? Come and introduce yourself!

My Prompt Journal
The Literature Community Experiment continues with the showing and sharing of untold numbers of prompts.

The Latest Love dA Lit Issue (by the amazing IrrevocableFate)
Every Sunday this article will aim to promote volunteer opportunities, various resources, prompts, challenges, and workshops, as well as highlighting various contests. This is by no means a complete list of all the literature going-ons, merely a tool to help you get involved and stay informed.

A group whose purpose is to get you writing a little every day. They want to inspire you! So why not let them?

Esther stared at Rebecca's back as she lay on the bed, sobs racking her body. Tears soaked the material of the pillowcase on which Rebecca lay as her wails echoed through the apartment. Esther swallowed a sigh, restraining herself to rubbing Rebecca's back and trying to soothe her friend. Focusing on the blonde hair splayed across the sheets, she managed to keep herself silent, not even allowing an exasperated huff to escape.
Despite having known that Anthony was wrong for her, Esther had made no attempt to separate the pair after Rebecca's initial response. When the blonde had yelled at her, railing about jealousy and how Esther would only ever be alone in the world, it was all she could do to bite her tongue, letting her friend's anger boil over and burn through. As easy as it would have been to walk away, t

he held out his earthly hands and asked me to trust him. I let him lead me through the
darkness and I came out alive. Mother, how was I to know that one day I would have to
battle his demons.
Days when he curses the silence of his world I cup my hands around his
ears so he can hear my voice and I whisper, I love you I love you I love you. My love does not calm him any more.
His face has lines filled with every paranoid thought, every miserable failure, every little drop of self-hate. Every day they etch deeper; turning into violent rivers. Mother, I hold his gaunt face in my small hands and it is overflowing. He would master my storms, turn them into little heaps by a wooden bed; whisper me endless love without the use of his voice. Reach into me, dip himself in our contentedness. Mothe
1 deviant said With LoveShe was beautiful- soft wisps of hair and wrinkled skin eyes screwed shut.
She was also born two months premature.
So small she could fit in the palm of his hand, her father through the tears.
He cried for his daughter who was finally here and, at the moment, safe; and he cried for his wife, who had not made it through the birth.
Heartbroken, he basically lived at the hospital, eagerly awaiting the day that he could take his daughter home.
Months passed, then several more followed.
Tests and medicine and beeping machines and hushed conversation with pitying looks thrown his way and soon the father was sick of the place, yet refused to leave. He couldn’t. Not when his baby girl was still there, with only him to support her.
In the end, he stayed, ignoring the looks and words of doubt, choosing instead to cheer his daughter on.
They took it day by day, because each one was a miracle.
Finally, after what seemed like endless examinations and treatments, he got the okay to take her ho
