Writers to Watch











Each week I will be featuring a few writers that I have taken a particular shine to. Some may be well known, others, more obscure. This week highlights Wacky Forms.

Wacky forms in prose and poetry add a little something extra to the work. Take a peek...down these rabbit holes.

:iconindigobutterfly5plz::iconindigobutterfly1plz:




This piece, though disjointed, really draws the eye. The lines speak of color in an interesting way. The final line makes me think there is more to the story.

:bulletblack:::iconindigobutterfly3plz::bulletblack:




The repeating of the words "the sky" in the first few lines actually enhanced the story. It brought my attention forcefully to the subject at hand and re-emphasized the main character's vision. I found it a breezy read, and yet deep in sentiment.

:bulletblack:::iconindigobutterfly3plz::bulletblack:




Inspired by the layout of E.E.Cummings, the way this poem is set out makes it fun and engaging to read. And yet the words themselves are just this side of bittersweet.

:bulletblack:::iconindigobutterfly3plz::bulletblack:


Please stop by their galleries and take a look!

If you know of one you think deserves some spotlight, let me know via note.

Inspiring Talent










Each week I will be featuring a few artists that I have taken a particular shine to. Some may be well known, others, more obscure. This week highlights Wonderland.

Shh... hark do you hear? The sounds of strangeness, the laughter of the mad, the clink of chipped china. Join me as we travel along the paths of the weird, and wondrous Underland. A place I hold dear, and would willing go if only I could find that magical White Rabbit's hole, or Looking Glass...

A World of My Own by Queen-Kitty

Queen-Kitty
As she looks around, the expression upon the model's face perfectly displays what Alice might feel when first encountering the other side of the looking glass. The tone and angle is well designed and beautifully set.

A warped table, floating tea sets, a mouse and a hare fighting over spoons, and over seeing it all? That delightfully Mad Hatter. Out of every delightful and wonky gem in this picture, it is Alice's expression that takes the tea cake!

The Jabberwocky Page 8 Spread by EranFolio

Brilliantly crafted, the black and white shadow-like cutout forms captures the wicked wonder of the Jabberwocky poem, and still manages to instill that fear of the creature.

"Tell Me Why" Three Days Grace



UCC Strong

Sat Oct 3, 2015, 7:51 PM
There are no words to express the feelings that have coursed through my soul over the past few days. Terror.... disbelief...heart-wrenching sadness; those words do not even begin to touch on it. I cannot explain how it felt to huddle in a classroom, knowing there was a shooter on campus, but not knowing if my friends and loved ones were safe... hearing that we had lost some, but not who. Or the terror of realizing I was supposed to be in the computer lab he shot into first. My favorite lab. That I would have been a victim, not a survivor had my boyfriend not suggested I stop in at another building because it was closer to my class. He saved my life with that suggestion. Or how I broke a bit when I couldn't reach a best friend. Or finding out that my other friends were okay, but should have been there in those class rooms that day.

Being search... walking to the buses... passed the crime scene... I just... I can't say how it all feels even now. Getting the names of those gone, knowing one on the list...

This was our home, our safe place where we came to learn. We thrive there, we make friends and find love. We learn and grow... and in a few seconds that was taken from us. A man so filled with hatred that he had to hurt others.... the senselessness. We never think it will happen to us. Not our town, not my college. We are a quiet town, close knit and UCC is a beautiful, peaceful campus. I love it there... and now....now it all hurts so badly. I'm writing this through tears, which have been my constant companion for the past few days. Laughter hurts, bring around people who can't understand how we all feel... we are survivors, and yet victims as well. We may not have been hit... but our heart still aches. 

I know people will say that time will heal, and it will. We will move on from this. But for now we gather together to comfort one another. We cry, we scream at the sheer senselessness of it all. And we mourn our losses while celebrating our heroes. We are UCC and we are STRONG.

Please, my dear ones, say a little prayer, or heartfelt good wishes for us. And hold your loved ones close. Remember October 1st. And remember us.

Tender-Heart by KmyGraphic


Beautiful deviants around the site who are always there with a kind word, and a helping hand. They are true gems.

LadyLincoln

Jenene is one of DeviantArt's finest. I have known her for years now, and even when her world is at its darkest, she never fails to display a giving spirit, loving words and beautiful talent. I have been privileged to know her, and hope to continue far into the future.




toxic--sunrise

Toxic is an absolute sweetie. She is kind, loving and supportive with words and actions. I haven't known her long in actuality, but I have discovered she is a wonderful hidden gem here on DA.
