The Good Stuff
I have a big gallery. If you're going to read anything from me, make it something from this box.
SuperimposeHe doesn't look like a gymnast. He's all button down shirts and frazzled grey hair framing wire spectacles, a picture perfect professorial archetype down to the very tips of his frayed shoelaces. But he was a gymnast once, or so he tells us, and I believe him because he smiles like he knows something while he's chatting before class.

News Articles I've Written
The Visual Novel: Video Games as a Literary MediumWhat is it?
Foreign Words the English Language NeedsOh hello. I’m finally getting around to making this news article that I said I might do, like, a month ago. Sorry, I’m not used to writing news articles. Bear with me.
Untitled is just a synonym for lazy.Well, the color poem form I introduced to dA was a rousing success, but interest of late seems to have died down. So I'm back with a new form for you all, something exciting and new, something different, something that I will probably make into a contest once I get some points in the bank. You ready?
Managing Your Inbox: Some Tips on StreamliningI'm not really an organized person. Yeah, sure, I like to TRY to be one, but most of my attempts to clean house don't stick. The one exception, however, is in my online life. I keep everything to do with the computer tabbed and organized and that includes my dA life.
What's That Mean?
That means I keep an eye out for the best literature on dA (specifically prose). If you think you have a suggestion for me, read on!
What is DailyLitDeviations?
DLD is a group dedicated to promoting the work of Literature artists on deviantArt.
By showcasing one featured DLD per day the Literature Gallery Moderators provide the community with a showcase of excellence in Literature. In contrast, we will be showcasing excellence with a series of literature pieces each day in a News Article to serve the community. We are a diverse group featuring 5 pieces of quality literature every day.
In such a large community many writers feel that their work goes unnoticed. The DLD is here to help change that!
How do I suggest a DLD?
Please see this page for the general guidelines and this page for other Admins you can suggest to. Please only suggest a piece to one Admin at a time to avoid any confusion.
Okay, but what if I have a suggestion for YOU, SilverInkblot?
Top right corner - send me a note! Here's the rundown:
Please send no more than two suggestions at a time. This makes it easier for me to keep up.
I can feature Prose or Poetry, though I try to focus more on Prose. We have lots of Poetry Admins who are very dedicated to their job and our Prose is sometimes lacking.
Please include a thumb and a description of why you think this piece deserves to be featured. It doesn't have to be a full critique - a few sentences will do nicely!
Yes, you can suggest yourself! If you deserve it, you deserve it! But please don't send me your entire gallery - remember I have to actually READ everything sent to me.
All the Admins have a certain style they enjoy. I myself like reading flash fic and prosetry, so I'm more likely to feature things with those qualities. However, I WILL read and consider anything sent to me. I do have to ask though, that they are standalone pieces - not chapters. I can't accept fanfiction either.
I've seen the latest journal, and it doesn't pacify me in the least. I believe LadyBrookeCelebwen summed up my opinions best before I got the chance:
The decision on what to do with the points shouldn't be made by you. The people who donated the points donated them to DLD, and looking through the people in the widget, many of them are the same people that are outright furious at all of this. Hand over the group, let the points sit (but that would a shame), give them to the people most of us associate with DLD - which would be the admins that have been active and posting the journals, giving the features, etc - if they start a new group. But not to some group that is approved by you, on the basis of who 'doesn't seem interested in the kudos of serving the lit community", when you've made decisions without any of the active admins.
Any points given were given because people truste
On DailyLitRecognitionI'm forgoing my usual weekly journal because there's still a lot of people confused right now, including myself. I've noticed that some of the explanatory journals have gone missing or been otherwise deleted, which makes me upset and leaves fewer sides of the story on the public record. But I will try, as best I can, to explain how things stand right now.
DailyLitDeviations is gone. I am not happy about it, but there isn't anything I, or indeed anyone else, can do about it. That avenue is lost, and all we can do at this point is move forward. You can find several journals detailing the reasons over at the group, but I still feel like I'm missing pieces of the puzzle. Carmalain7 said it best:
"I also wish to express that as an admin, albeit a minor one, I feel quite slighted by this wh
Volunteer PositionsDailyLitRecognition will have a larger focus than DailyLitDeviations did; consequently, we are in need of more volunteers to work with us. These are the positions we’re definitely looking for. More might be added in the future as we develop ideas.
Group Operator - Someone who will be solely responsible for running the actual group (not the account or the overall actions of the community). They will work with other admins (volunteers) to make sure that the group is up to date and kept up. They will be able to bring people on board after they are approved by me, SilverInkblot.
Literary Panel - People who would serve as judges for contests, and panel for any group altering questions that DLR wishes to address.
Layout Artist - taking care of the face of DLR. If you know how to make a page look snazzy, this is the position for you! We’re also looking for a new logo and journal skin if anyone has experience there.
More Volunteer Positions Available!Hello everyone! SilverInkblot, with an update on the volunteer positions DailyLitRecognition is looking to fill. The following bullet points are for our weekend articles and a little detail about each one. We don’t expect any of these positions to be especially strenuous as they will only be taking place once a month, so feel free to apply for more than one if you wish!
New artist highlight
Exactly what it says on the tin – a post dedicated to new writers, new being defined as “on the site two years or less.” Admins will have to keep a sharp eye out for promising new deviants to feature!
Again, pretty self-explanatory. Interviewers will interview writers. Don’t be fooled – I was an interviewer over at :devdailylitde
