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!

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

:iconspoken-like-artists:

:new: VertigoArt is hosting his "Pass the Poem". He is the one who inspired me to do the one OUR group is doing. He is doing it in general, so there will be various others participating. If you liked being in our PTP OR didn't get a chance to sign up, here's your chance.

Pass The Poem 2014 - WorkingThe Poem
Staring into the sun, my mind binds itself to the rays
bending the supple limbs in search for celestial ghosts.
As the curtain swings to cover us, our secrets are safe.
I wonder, will time pass before the sun will again breach defenses?
I have often lost the minutes betwixt night and day,
and the kaleidoscope crepusculum colours me sightless
Leaving me in a daze
The air tastes of honeysuckle and mildew, strangely sweet,
reminding me of memories, and promises that I could not keep.
Moments lost, and sight be found,
I miss the moon, it's subtle glow amongst the dark.
Fantastic swirling galaxies haunt my waking dreams
or have they taken over my conscious thought?
Nothing is certain, safe for the minutes swirling by


I hosted the first Pass the Poem several years ago and had a great turn out. Since then I have done 3 other Pass the Poems and several other group collaborations. Other deviants and groups have adapted Pass the Poem for their own and brough




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!"

Which Submission best demonstrates the Halloween Prompt Best?

4 deviants said Rotten Candy    "Trick or Treat time, Mommy! Trick OR Treat!" Shouted Naomi. She was tugging on her blonde wig, and snatching up her plastic pumpkin bag. I had told her she had to wait fifteen more minutes. She sat and stared at that clock completely motionless like a coiled spring, but once the second hand hit the twelve on that last minute she let out all that compressed energy. She bounded around the house, checking her reflection in every mirror she happened by. "Mommy, Mommy! Let's go!" Naomi ran past me to the door. I still needed to clean up the mess we'd made with the face paint. "Mommy we are gunna miss it! Gunna miss it!" she fell dramatically to the floor at my feet, knees bent, hands folded. "Lord, tell Mommy she needs to hurry up or sh'll make us miss Halloween." She had her eyes open, glaring at me while I wiped up the last few sparkles.
    "Hey now, you know better than to ask for those kinds of things. How about we ask for a safe Halloween?" I suggested as I we

3 deviants said Trick or treatSpices fill the air,
fall is here.
With the pumpkins,
and many apples.
They fill the need;
they need
for fall.
Halloween creeps,
around the corner.
People prepare;
for the trick or treaters
and the spook filled night.
The night,
filled with mystery.
Even more so
with fright.
Where the moon;
shines extra brightly.
It rules the night,
the bliss continues;
even the adults dress up
like the kids.
Being someone else,
while getting drunk
with everybody.
Sweet drinks,
and sweet snacks.
Zombies and
witches.
They come alive;
the heros
and villans.
Crowd the streets,
searching for adventures
and sweets.
But the night ends,
they go home
with their treasures.
Then they wait;
for next year
to be another character
and gain their yearly treasures.

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?

Heya! 
I'm taking fanfiction requests. I won't put any restrictions on what you can suggest other than no yaoi, yuri, or mature content of any kind. How many I take depends on how many I like, and this is not first come first serve, so no worries if you need some time to think about it! I write for a lot of different things from movies to video games to select animes, so ask me about them and I'll see what I can do :3 In general, my favorites are KH, FF, LoZ, How to Train your Dragon....but there's endless more, so don't be afraid to ask! :D (Big Grin) 

Simply reply with your request, that's all! :) (Smile) 

~Hannah
