Write and Revise Contest: Part 1

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 10, 2012, 7:37 PM

You thought we were going to let you rest after the Summer Contest, huh? Wrong! We're back with a two-parter to hopefully get you both creating and editing, as all good writers must. This contest is brought to you by VertigoArt, who has rejoined the ranks of DLD as our contest and affiliate admin! :eager: Please go give him some love.

Part 1: Go Wild!

The first part of the contest is relatively simple: write something. It can be a journal, a stream of consciousness, a scrap of a poem, an idea you've had for ages or one that comes to you in a burst of inspiration.

This part of the contest is open  from August 11th to September 11th, 2012 October 11th, 2012.

If you need some help getting started check out prompts set up by our affiliate groups, Live-Love-Write listed in their blog here:… and theWrittenRevolution archived here: thewrittenrevolution.deviantar… In addition, IrrevocableFate regularly lists prompts from various groups in her Love dA Lit articles.


:bulletblue: Entries must include a link to this contest article in the artist's comment.
:bulletblue: Entries must be written specifically for this contest, submitted to dA on or after August 1, 2012.
:bulletblue: Entries must adhere to dA's Submissions and Etiquette policies.
:bulletblue: Mature content is allowed, provided it is marked with all appropriate flags.
:bulletblue: 2 entries per deviant; collaborations are not allowed.

Seems like this could be fun, count me in. :la:

I've submitted my entry to the folder. Hope you accept it. =D

I'd also like to join the group if possible, though I'm planning on starting a separate account for my fiction and moving to that soon. XD

I also might have a second entry for you soon, I seem to be prolific lately, that's not like me at all. XP

I'm just wondering, can we write fanfiction for this? :)
And also, by "stream of consciousness" and "a scrap of a poem" you're implying that we can submit unfinished works?
DailyLitDeviations Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
Unfinished works, yes. But no fan fiction. Sorry.

Okay thanks. :)

I've tried to submit a piece to your group and I'm being told that I am NOT allowed to submit there. I am not a member of your group, but you state that I don't have to be to submit. HELP! please.

Strange. All of the settings should let you submit. Try again, and if it doesn't work send a note to the group and we'll invite your submission into the gallery. :)
