Feminist AlertHey there.
I'm just a passerby.
Looking for a certain girl.
And I'm gonna tell you why.
I met a psychic.
Who was a fly chick.
She had gave lots of motivation.
As my heart ticked.
She said I would meet a girl.
About your height.
Have a small weight.
And you look pretty light.
She said I would meet a girl.
Who was very caring.
Always very truthful.
And also very daring.
She said I would meet a girl.
Who has clean, blond hair.
Who always have delicious
food to prepare.
She said I would meet a girl.
Who would be there by my side.
Who's beautiful not just in the out.
But the inside.
Now tell me.
Are you that girl?
I was accused of harrassment and rape that day.
Can't Accept Perfect ArtistsFor what you stand.
You rejected me.
I loved everything about you.
And you threw me out of the window.
I made a million works.
I made a million commissions.
Yet you still reject me.
Is it because I'm dumb?
Is it because I have no heart?
Do you look at me.
Like a work of art?
Or do you not notice me?
From the back of the crowd.
From the back of the others.
Who wanted to be approved by you.
It darkened my heart.
The way you threw me like trash.
In the dumpster of failure.
In the dumpster of disapproval.
Well, I am loved by someone else.
And I hope you get jealous.
And if you don't want me.
Then I don't want you.
My dream school.
NooostalgiaRemember when we loved our earth
We used to be entertained by many great things
Like water and food
Love and happiness
Equal opportunities after equal opportunities
I would always hold you until the day we shriveled
Our dust passed through the almighty evil
And then we got captured by the almighty evil
It seems that they wanted to do the deeds of the devil
Because the devil wants us all to be dead human cells
Then we were treated with treason
Killed, whipped, abused for no apparent reason
All we wanted was to live and be free
But they would never listen and just kick our asses
However, we would always have faith
That somewhere up there love will always be
Our unborn children and our dead relatives
Watching us and rooting us from up above
Of course the almighty evil could not hear the cheer
Instead all they could hear was money and our screams
They turned our earth from selfless into selfish
Turned our earth into beast from beauty
Turned our earth from love to hate
So, my final question

Interested in being Featured?

Awesome! It's real simple to sign up. Just drop a note to the group with the thumbcodes to three of your deviations you'd like to receive feedback on. Prose, poetry, scripts, anything (as long as it’s lit)! But, before you send the note, please make sure that the deviations you're choosing have a couple questions in the author's comments. It's much easier to give feedback on something if you know what the author isn't sure about.

*Commenting/critiquing on more than one of the deviations will increase your odds of winning. There is a strict limit of three entries per deviant.
**A Comment is a few lines, possibly a paragraph, about your opinion of the story. It usually includes something that you really liked and should include at least one thing that can be improved. A Critique is many paragraphs about the deviation and will include both personal opinion as well as correction to technical errors.
***Once your comment is submitted, click the timestamp. Then copy/paste the URL into a comment on this journal.

GrimFace242 MV for Literature

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 14, 2015, 6:37 PM
Okay, so the Grim one has taken on another project.  I know, I know.  It's awesome!  :eager:  I've decided to join up at seniormentors as a Mentor with a focus on Literature.  What I excel at is planning and plotting.  So that's what I'm offering as a service.  If you're a deviant that is looking for assistance in plotting out their short story or novel.  You know, someone to shoot ideas off, a double check on character motivation, is there enough story in your story, will your subplot overtake your main plot.  That kinda stuff.  Not beta reading/proofreading; to be clear.  Just to give forewarning, I'm a serial plotter but I'm quite willing to tone it down to help others out.

If you would like to engage in a mentor session with me I can be reached in one of three ways

  • 1. Submit a deviation to seniormentors Mentor Me favorites folder.
  • 2. Find me on Skype, username fenris242
  • 3. For more intense mentorship, send me a note with a Mentee Application; provided below:

Mentee Application Form:

:bulletblack: Which genre do you wish to be mentored in? (Only choose one) [provide the genres you are Mentoring for--disregard this question if you are only Mentoring one genre]

:bulletblack: Please provide me with three deviations that give me an idea of your skill level as well as a hint at the starts of your storyline.

:bulletblack: Tell me a little about yourself and your current knowledge:
Elaborate. What experience do you currently have with your artistic interest?
How would you like to improve? Why do you think I can help you?

:bulletblack: List Two (2) Artistic Goals:
What goals do you have for improving your art? Please be as specific as possible. You know what needs improvement with your work, be honest.

It's Been a Year [Book Giveaway!]

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 12, 2015, 4:37 PM
and I've written lots and lots of letters and sent them all over the world.  Most of them were just rambly messes of disaster.  Others were a feeble attempt at poetry and this year, I think I might start working some prose into the letters.  But it's still gonna be random because I tend to write a couple and put them in envelopes and then decide where they're going.  The only time I don't do that is if you respond and then I try my best to respond to what you've written.  Why?  Because I like random.

The project totally succeeded in keeping my hands busy and the rest of me out of trouble.  And I'd like to give out a giant thank you to every one that participated in this and an even bigger thank you to DeviantART for giving me the forum to do this.  Actually, I think I can do one better.  No, I'm CERTAIN I can do better.

I dug through my bookcases.

And I've come up with a small handful of books that I'm going to give away.  Now, please take this as seriously as it is.  I'm a complete bibliophile and I don't give up my books for anyone.  Honestly, I've never given a book away.  To anyone.  Ever.  And I've received lots of books that I don't like as gifts.

But that's getting off track.  I'm seriously going to give away a handful of books.  It took me some time to pick out the ones I was willing to part with.

If you'd like to be in the running to get one of the books, it's pretty simple.

Let's start with who is eligible:
Everyone! No seriously.  Everyone.  Being part of my Letter Writing Project is not a requirement, but will give an added perk.  I'm willing to ship anywhere that will accept mail, so even geographic location doesn't disqualify you.

How to Enter

Leave a comment on this journal with the following:
  • Thumb or link to the last thing you faved
  • Mention a deviant that you find is an inspiration on the community.

:bulletwhite: If you've signed up for my Letter Writing Project prior to today, your name will be entered into the drawing twice.
:bulletwhite: If you've signed up for my Letter Writing Project prior to today, AND you've written back, your name will be entered in the drawing three times.

So what are you in the running for?

I thought about not showing you, but then I figured that would be rude.  Each book will come with a personal message from me because seriously, that's how you're supposed to give books to other people.  Here's a picture of what I'm giving away.  I'm not sold on giving away The Little Red Book of Very Dirty Words.  It will depend on the amount of participation I get with this.
