How to Improve Your WritingHow to improve your writingHow to Improve Your Writing by BloodshotInk
In 2013 I wrote an article called How to get more views on your Literature. I wanted to give actual practical advice from people who know, writers established in the DA lit community.The article was (and still is) very popular and seems to have helped a lot of folks so I decided to tackle a different (but way more important question)... how can we make our writing the best it can be?
Because it's great to show work to your friends but self improvement, or working towards a goal (for a lot of us that's a writing career, a novel, publication, competitions etc) is a whole different thing. So I asked some of DA's finest to spill the beans and answer those commonly asked questions 'How did you get so good?' 'Will I ever be able to write like this?' and 'Hi, is this Dominos?' (wrong number).
In How to get more views... I promi
Playing With Text in dA [Semi-Tutorial] UPDATEDFONTS ON DEVIANTARTPlaying With Text in dA [Semi-Tutorial] UPDATED by NoxSatuKeir
There are several things you can do with dA's text. You can use Italics, Bold, Underline,
Strikethrough, and even change font face or font type. However, there aren't many directions on how to do these things. So, I'm going to give you a quick semi-tutorial on how to work these.
These features are easy enough to use once you know what you're doing. You just have to learn tags. You can visit this link to learn about some other common HTML tags.
The Simpleist Tags to Use Are:
< i > to begin italics and < /i > to end the italics
< strong > to begin bold and < /strong > to end the bold
< b > to begin bold and < /b > to end the bold
< u > to begin underline and < /u > to end the underline
< strike >
to begin strike and< /strike > to end the strike
< s > to begin strike and < /s > to end the strike

Marriages= alcohol and screaming.Let us go, you and I.Marriages= alcohol and screaming. by Kurosaki-Amber
Marriages smell like alcohol and sound like screaming.
And I, could not have left any more abruptly.
Confrontation is bullshit, hiding is beautiful.
And you smile at me, pretending I cannot see...
You're so close now to fixing it, but you've stopped searching for what keeps the peace.
Just hoping that if you ignore it long enough, the happiness won't wither away.
So now, you're left with the unravelled pieces that don't fit.
And you scream.
And he screams.
And my hands just shake.
Etherised beside your wedding rings; vows drip from your open mouths- drowning in empty Victorian bitter cans- and washed away by the cussing and yelling of voices that used to put me to sleep.
It's a sticky afternoon with sweat piling down our chins, we would rather huddle in the hottest room than talk it out.
It's Whiskey and ice. Tinkling against the glass like Christmas carols have come early.
Drink up, and raise your voice....louder....louder!....LOUDER!
It's the adult declar
Ice Cream MurderYour skinny curvesIce Cream Murder by Aheng711
it never bothers me
What colors you bring
it wont matter
Come to me closer
for something I never have, love
This rotten heart of mine
will hurt you, endlessly
I knew that you would give me
for this transient comfort
I have tasted you
for mere satisfaction
This wont be enough
it will never be
I knew that you would love me
no matter what
Because you never ask questions
This love of yours
I take it, I swallow it
till nothing's left
but your insipid bones

I can truly say it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here! Usually, every other month or so I would answer messages from friends and quickly browse through people’s work. Even though school keeps me busy, and I don’t have the means to go onto dA, I continue to appreciate the relationships I’ve made here, and also if there is one or two deviations, I do end up reading them. I am only inactive in the colloquial sense.
Anyway, I’ve been tagged by . If you would like to know about me, please consider reading this! I feel it is not so often that I give up information – or pictures of – myself so readily! Hahaha, only when I was uploading the photos that I realized how personal my life is or how much I like my privacy. Here is a tiny slice of my life:
As you can see, I am trying to look seductive in this photo. Even I can tell, it is not working!
Actually, this was taken when I just woke up, so this is me in my natural state, just kidding.
I never wear make-up because it takes too long to put on, and I don’t mind being without it.
Note: I do not like to take pictures of myself, so do not be surprised if you cannot find this photo of me later.
Beds are private places for sleep and relaxation!
For my own personal sanity, I will only show you the headboard and a fall garland.
These are just some of the manga I own. I have plenty of books elsewhere.
I have books not only on the nightstand, but also on the floor near the bed and in my closet.
Yes, because when I wake up, I will pick up a book and start reading it.
Seashells in a box of chocolate are not so unusual is it?
The few shells and pebbles I have are from the wonderful beaches I have been to.
I collect other things such as pressed flowers and bookmarks.
Aside from this heart pendant which I have worn forever (!), I do not wear many accessories.
Jewelry is pretty, but I feel as though they would weigh me down.
Sometimes I will wear a bracelet, but this necklace I wear even to the shower and when I sleep.
The contents of this tin box changes from year-to-year. This was given to me by my aunt.
Not much I can say about it, but I see it nearly every day, so maybe that is why I have included it.
I have had several pets during my lifetime, but I have never taken pictures of them.
If I could own another pet though, I would like to own a Siberian husky or something huggable.
Our neighborhood consists of three cul-de-sacs. We’ve lived here for 13 years.
Throughout the whole neighborhood you can smell the lavender my mother grows.
Closets are very private places where someone chooses clothes that will make them presentable.
Therefore, the clothes I wear, one can already have an idea of the clothes I like and are in my closet.
I share the closet with my younger brother. Haha, some of these clothes aren’t even mine.
These are the shoes I am currently wearing. I like to wear them with a pair of skinny jeans.
What a weird picture to end on…. Although why someone might want to see what shoes I'm wearing is beyond me.
I don't care. They get me places, and that's all that matters to me.
Hey. Just call me TRexy.|
I've always been called shy, quiet . . . sweet. I suppose I am those things, but I like to - at least, I try to - be eccentric, zany, impulsive, and passionate. I like to have fun. ^_^
<-- Why is this so cute?
