Goal for Next New Year'sEDIT 1 YEAR LATER:
Well, not nearly as far as all this. But actually the story itself is in a much better place -- much more interesting, many more layers, and a tighter plot to boot. (No functional full draft, however...not even one in which characters have the same name the whole way through. You know that awkward moment when you meet someone who has your character's first name and it's an uncommon enough first name that you're like, "Well...I had the name picked out long before I met you but let's avoid awkwardness" so you change the character name? That happened. Twice for the same character. Ugghh.)
And I think honestly the main reason a lot of this didn't happen is that I was super busy. Summer was when I planned to get most of this done -- and I was way, way too busy but in the best possible way. A lot of learning and growing on so many levels, and I finished almost every day utterly exhausted but happy. Worth putting this off. But, as a result, what precious little time I had i

We are Women. We are Human.What's going on?
While the US is not the country that forces a rape victim to marry her rapist, we are still a country where a woman's fundamental right to bodily integrity is denied by current and pending legislation, written and passed primarily by men.

National Novel Writing Month this November!You might know what NaNoWriMo means. You might not.
Whether you're new to the mad writing frenzy that is National Novel Writing Month or not, I encourage you all to take up the challenge!
You'll be writing 50,000 words in 30 days this November.
Sounds tough? It is, but you can do it. Just take it 1,667 words a day, slow and steady, or have yourself a few binge days every week. (You might find yourself spending inordinate amounts of time describing scenery in order to meet your word count each day!)
Whatever your strategy is, this is a challenge that will help you become a better writer. Too many novelists try to write a novel...and then barely scratch out a chapter, so frightened by the possibility of imperfection.
This challenge isn't meant to write any great piece of fiction. It is meant as an exercise to make you realize your writing potential--yes, you can write thousands and thousands of words, and yes, you can write down complete crap without the world e

You and IArtwork by agnes-cecile
I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.
I see what it's like for day and night.
this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile
'Cause they see things in a different light
But they never tried

To share what you loveHello everyone,
It's been such a long time since I've done a feature just for the heck of it, without any purpose whatsoever other than showcasing things I love. I've been so busy on here with young-photo-club, Death-Chicks, GetDailyDeviations, and my own Group Spotlight features that I haven't been able to do a feature of random things I've seen and adored here on DA! So here it goes!

Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
