A little DLR and more

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 6:07 AM
So as I said in my last journal DailyLitRecognition's founder SilverInkblot has created a group, LitRecognition Come on over and join us. We are still in the set-up phase so bear with us.

We are searching for a Layout Artist for both the group and the main account. The person would be responsible for creating the face of DLR. If you are interested please send a note to VertigoArt and/or SilverInkblot. We would love to have you on board. You do need knowledge of CSS so please keep that in mind.

We should be up and running by next week so follow us and look out for a new recognition of deviant and their deviations daily. We are honored by your support.

Some of the Category Admins have started to post their suggestion guidelines, so start sending in yours and let us read them. A list of admins will be posted shortly. We are also still looking for a few good men (and women) to help us out. The positions we need filled are listed in this journal: fav.me/d7elog1

Now for something a little different.

I would like to issue a challenge. Set a timer for 5 minutes and just write. You can post it to your scraps or just leave it in St.ash if you wish, but post a link to it here. 

I am not one for prompts, but here is the one I would like you to think about before you set your timer:

I am a poet. I have put my hand to other things, but I have always been a poet.

My personal writings are angsty and sometimes dark, but my professional pieces are a bit lighter. I am categorized, like many, as "undefined". I used to consider myself a literalist - simple metaphors where necessary, but primarily, painting easy to understand pictures in easy to read pieces, but my life is changing and so is my voice. Who knows where I will end up next, if anywhere.

I started writing before I knew how to properly spell at 7 and it has suckt with me throughout my adult life.

I wrote my first poem about my new sister at 7 and finished my first children's story at 8. I was published at 9 and dropped off until I was 13.

I had my first adult publishing experience at 19 when a piece of mine was inked in a local paper. I continued writing methodically and religiously until my mid 20's where my personal life took precedence and I had to set my pen down. I did not write again for several years.

I am now in my 30's and the lit bug is secured with two hands. I will work diligently to ensure it stays where it is.

Will, Lisa's lost her fucking mind. She's just up and decided on her OWN to destroy what you created, and you and I and so fucking many of us built and lovingly maintained. She's locked all the admins out of DLD and is closing it. I hope to god that you knowing this doesn't send you spiraling down, but man, I HAD to tell you....:(
