THE LIST

Fri Jul 1, 2016, 9:03 PM


A Far From Comprehensive but Still Pretty Impressive List of deviantART Literature Peeps

I've often said I keep a list of writers - now you too can have easy access to all my collection organized spreadsheet of great literature! Back when I was running StyleOverSubstance, I needed an easy way to add names for the game; and thus, I put together a list - an epic list, of every writer I know, have heard of, or ran across during my dA tenure.

(Yes, many people will fall into multiple categories - give me a break please, it's hard enough just listing four hundred names.)

Notes: If you're split down the middle of poetry and prose, I probably put you in the prose category. N00bs are defined as deviants with less than 200 watchers who have been here less than 2 years. The Underground is for deviants with more than 2 years, but less than 200 watchers. Deviants without any activity in the last six months are not included.

Yes, I checked the stats and galleries of these people. Yes, I probably misplaced some people. No, this is not a comprehensive list. Yes, I will probably add to it in the future. Yes, I take suggestions.

I combed my way through a 400-person list, as well as numerous deviants who have joined since I last updated said list, and let me tell you, it was a depressing experience to systematically see just how many deviants have simply up and abandoned their account. I mean, I know it happens all the time, but I never realized how many of these names on my screen are only echoes now. I hope you all return one day.

I probably tagged too many people for it to register with everybody :B I'm not sure how that system works, but there are things I never got the tag message on either :shrug:

Finding new authors was 100% my intention :la:

Thank you :D It was work, but I had fun getting things together. It's kinda nice seeing things organized like this. Not that I'm trying to pigeonhole anyone or what have you, but I think this will make a great reading guide.

I hope you do! I did not include myself though, since my name is in the author position :lol:

You're so welcome!!! (I've actually been admiring your work from afar for a spell now.) I'm glad you had fun, this is definitely quite the accomplishment! I hope you're proud of yourself, if you aren't already. :D Oh, I don't think anyone thinks you're trying to pigeonhole anyone. If anything, what you did here, is somewhat like those blurbs that T.V. show episodes get when they're put online for people to watch...I hope that made sense!

Oh, I definitely plan to use it often! I didn't think you did, because I didn't see your username on the list. ;P

P.S. I really like your username and avatar/icon.

Thanks for the mention. If they aren't on there, cholie and Emily-Byrd are both capable poets and supportive members of the community. Sorry, I checked but it's a long list so I might have missed them. cholie writes mostly free verse in English and Spanish. Emily writes free verse and some formalist poetry. Both are delightful people that anyone will be fortunate to acquaint themselves with.

I've been good. I haven't been writing a lot because I was kind of burned out from the insane amount of academic writing last semester, but I'm starting to take a look at some revisions. I'm also going to send some things to some lit magazines so I'm excited about that. Reserving some space on the wall for my rejection slip collection, but I'll get something accepted eventually.

Oh and justMANGO should be in here, definitely; same as LadyAnder. Both authors always have really helpful replies on the Literature forums, too. For that matter, can't you include saintartaud as well? She is always so exact and professional in her answers to people's questions in there; that's got to count for something.
