Happily Ever After by AnnikaClarisse

“Do you believe in the beauty of absence?”

Rain on My Sunshine by yuumei

This lyrical quote is from one of my favorite songs of all time by the brilliant songwriter Kevin Ray, and I couldn’t help but hear it again vibrate within my head and my heart when I saw these latest artworks by Yuumei.

Come Undone by yuumei

These latest artworks conjured by Yummei, forged from the forever stuff just beyond the grasp of consciousness, again remind me that nothing, absolutely nothing, comes close to the healing power of art. Visual, auditory, sculpted, or with words, nothing can transcend the spiritual bliss of the “deep spiritual grok,” of the healing personal connection with a piece of artwork that washes over you and cleanses your soul. 

Bygone Days by yuumei

As artists, art appreciators, writers and composers across the spectrum of media, we can all acknowledge that the societally coerced “agreed” upon version of normalcy in this world can be challenging to say the least … but as artists and writers holding post as the connected sentinels of all things truly important and worthy, we must persevere. That is our accepted burden.  It is sometimes our greatest joy.

Porcelain Lies by yuumei

For each of us traversing the hard times, dark thoughts and perilous paths that fill our world at this moment in human history, these artworks by Yuumei serve as a reminder that it’s OK to dive deep, to plumb the darkest depths – so long as we never give in, so long as we never quit, so long as we remember that no matter how many days of rain, the sun will rise and finally shine through, and that we will once again rise…  We will always have each other, we will always have this, our community, and most importantly of all: we will always have our capacity to love.

Caged Heart by yuumei

Could a Jurassic/Dinosaur style Pokemon movie actually be happening?

An automaton (plural: automata or automatons) is a self-operating, or a machine or control mechanism designed to follow automatically a predetermined sequence of operations, or respond to predetermined instructions. Some automata, such as in mechanical clocks, are designed to give the illusion to the casual observer that they are operating under their own power.

While reading all of the great articles today about this being Roy Batty's inception date: 

Julia alexander's @loudmouthjulia article at
Scott Collura @ScottCollura article at
Rebecca Hawkes Beckie_Hawkes at The Telegraph

I was reminded that none of us here at DeviantArt will ever forget that day four years ago when a mysterious communication from an untraceable source arrived on our doorstep. It turned out to be an unknown audio recording of a blade runner’s “Voight-Kampff” test-interview with Roy Batty shortly before his return to Earth from the off-world colony on which he led three other replicants in a murderous rampage and successful escape attempt.

This was proven to be the actual  “Final Testament of Roy Batty”.

Today's Inspiration

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”

Satoru Iwata by Isi-Daddy

Goodbye Satoru Iwata

Over the weekend Nintendo president Satoru Iwata lost his battle to Cancer. For many of us who have grown up playing his games, this news is heartbreaking however, we believe that he would want us to celebrate his life with the same joy that he put into his games. Today, let's celebrate the whimsical gamer who inspired and entertained us. Thank you Mr. Iwata.

Pluto In The Spotlight

In what promises to be the biggest planetary unveiling in a quarter-century, NASA's New Horizon spacecraft will sweep past Pluto on Tuesday and unveil it, in all it's icy glory. Some fun facts you may not be aware of — this mission is 9 years in the making as the spacecraft was launched on January 19, 2006. Also, not only have we never seen Pluto before, this is the farthest desination for any space mission in history, making this a staggering technological accomplishment if everything goes to plan. Can't wait to meet you dwarf planet!

Batman vs Superman

Comic-con certainly brought a wealth of trailers and here's another — the official extended trailer for the upcoming Batman vs Superman. We get some footage of Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor in this one, and even a line from Batman "How many good guys are left? How many stayed that way?". Tell us what you think in the comments.

Fear The Walking Dead

Walking Dead fans have been anticipating more information about the prequel Fear The Walking Dead and here it is. While it's tooted as a spin-off it's quickly apparent from the trailer that aside from the name, and the presence of zombies, not much else is the same. They share no characters or references so it's going to be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Incognito at Comic-Con

Every year Adam Savage, co-host of Mythbusters, dons a costume and heads to Comic-con and this year he had a partner in crime — Chris Hadfield. Appropriately, they both cosplayed as 2001: A Space Odyssey astronauts. Well played.

Philae Lander Touchdown to Comet by SolarGaming

The Sun Has Got His Hat On

The sun has got his hat on, hip-hip-hip-hooray, The sun has got his hat on and he's coming out today. Now we'll all be happy, hip-hip-hip hooray! The sun has got his hat on and the European Space Agency Rosetta's lander Philae has woken up today! When the lander landed on the comet 67P in November, it was a great success, until the comet rotated and the lander could no longer get any sunlight on it's solar panels. It went to sleep. But yesterday the ESA got a signal. The comet was closer to the sun and even though the lander was in a crator it received enough sunlight on its panels to power back up. Today it is back to work. Hopefully now they can get a strong enough signal to figure out exactly where Philae landed as when it first touched down it bounced nearly half a mile before it touched down. The Rosetta orbiter is taking detailed pictures of the surface but still hasn't found it.

NSA...stop watching by Bluefire-Amaterasu

Exhibiting The Secret Art Of The NSA

For over 17 years, David Darchicourt worked with the National Security Agency as a graphic designer and art director, illustrating top-secret documents about government surveillance programs. Now the former NSA employee’s work is featured as part of a project called Secret Power, created by New Zealand artist Simon Denny for this year’s Biennale international art show. David didn't know that Simon was working on the exhibit when he reached out to him and commissioned a piece of art, a map of New Zealand, that he would actually use in the show. Denny set out to do this to show how powerful these artists work can become working for governments in this fashion.

Newspapers... by Argocat8

Bend Over Journalism And Take It Like A Man

Ever since newspapers began, the owners of the papers have used their power in one way or other, whether it is for power or reinforce their personal beliefs or philosophy. Things haven't only not changed since then, they've gotten far worse. With so much money in politics now (Dark Money) and big media wanting it, especially during election times, everything is for sale. Rupert Murdoch has always fancied himself a king or queen maker. He helped Margaret Thatcher get to power and helped keep her there. So just as the tide of public opinion has turned very much in Edward Snowden's favor, the Sunday Times runs a hatchet piece on him. It quotes anonymous government sources about his putting people at harms risk, with the British Government going as far as saying he has blood on his hands because of the leaks and then go on to say that as of yet no one has been harmed. The thrust of the piece is the suggestion that the US and British governments have received work that both China and Russia have hacked Edward Snowden's files while offering no evidence as such. Click on the title of this piece and read Glenn Greenwald's rebuttal of the Sunday Times piece on The Intercept website.


Line Of Action

This tutorial by Christopher-Hart, demonstrates the line of action and how important it is to creating a flowing piece.

TWR Interviews: On Writing

Together with our Mentorship Project, we'll be releasing a series of interviews with experienced writers and members of our community. They will all have a different focus, according to the parts of the Project they are paired with.

This being the first article, it will contain some general advice on writing. It will be updated as more deviants contribute to it, so keep an eye out!


The deviants who so kindly shared their views with us for this article are:

What's your ideal writing environment, if any?

I enjoy writing on my laptop, leaning back (all right, slouching) into my living room couch. My cat keeps me company, warming my lap. While he gets in my way, I enjoy his company, so I'll add him to my "ideal writing environment" setup.

Wherever I happen to be. Seriously. Sometimes I write in bed in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep. Sometimes I write at a coffee shop surrounded by middle schoolers who just got out of class. Sometimes I write while watching Law & Order. Sometimes I write with my writing group somewhere quiet. I don’t think there’s an ideal environment. Only an ideal mindset: focused.

Absolute quiet, like at 4AM in the morning. No distractions, no interference, just me and my writing. Which is super hard because no one in my house likes to be quiet. Which is okay, I can write while there are things going on, but I prefer the quiet.

Quiet. I prefer not to have all kinds of crazy going on when I'm writing. Which is actually pretty hard to accomplish in my house. So I tend to do writing either late at night when everyone's asleep or on weekends when it's just me and the dogs and I'm able to hide in my bathroom with all the doors locked and ear muffs on so I can't hear the dogs whining on the other side of the door.

In my room, with my music on (typically, only instrumentals). I appreciate the peace and quiet that my room allows me. It’s my safe haven and it’s where I write the most often. Trying to write anywhere else typically messes up my vibe before I can even get started because the noise is often too distracting. With that being said though, if I fall into a funk or too much of a routine I will switch it up and write somewhere else.

I write most effectively in the dark, at night, with headphones on listening to ambient music. Lots of electronica and soundtracks, music that drowns out all distractions without providing any of its own. Other than that, I don't require a special place or magic socks, or anything ritualistic like that. I do require coffee however, lots and lots of coffee.

...where I am inspired to write... and that is one of these:

  • Walking through an art gallery with a notebook. I can and do come out the other end with poetic sketches that I sometimes publish exactly as captured 'in the moment'.

  • Sitting in a coffee shop, or at a place called 'Heavens Pizza' with their amazing pizza, a bowl of greek salad and a half carafe of red wine (it's cheap there!). I sit by the window, and they have a candle burning. I often like to peruse a poetry book, and sketch out some of my own writing.

  • Sitting in a park with a notebook.

  • At home, sitting in front of DA. Other artistic works nearly always inspires me. I also love to type fast with 'raw' inspiration straight into DA and press 'submit'. Sometimes this is followed by a very quick update before anyone sees that typo, or I throw the deviation into storage if I don't think it works. I especially like this at night in the dark with only computer screen glow, red wine and candles. I think I crave a past century gothic writing scene!

  • In the middle of the night, or in the shower, or at work, or driving or... any place where some perfect words rush into my head and nothing will give me peace until I have made whatever mad dash is necessary in order to find a piece of paper and write it down.

What is the most difficult thing you had to learn about writing?

I used to abuse adverbs... a lot. The devious little things still manage to sneak into my drafts on a regular basis.

That sometimes it’s not about you, it’s about the market. And I don’t want to see anyone using this as an excuse not to revise and rewrite and work hard. But the thing is, sometimes publishing isn’t ready for a certain style, and sometimes a certain genre isn’t selling well, and sometimes you have to shelve a project and work on something new because, even though you know it’s a great project, you can’t sell it right now. And that’s okay. Be patient. Work hard. Always be working on the next thing.

That I will write well and I will also write terribly. I had to learn that not everything I write is going to be amazing, but at the same time not everything will be horrible. I will love things that I write, but I will also hate them. That doesn't mean they are worth less or more because everything you write is a learning experience.

Description. For years, I included horribly too much description and as soon as I realized it, I cut out almost all description. Which is equally as bad. There has to be a happy medium with description and I'm still working on getting it right.

Oh my. The most difficult thing I had to learn about writing was to let go from a technical aspect. For a long while, after I first started writing, I refused to stray away from rhyme schemes and things of that nature (Not necessarily fixed forms, but just rhyming). I was afraid that my free verse would sound too much like prose—not that that’s a problem, but not what I was aiming for. I eventually got better at letting go. It’s freed up my creativity leaps and bounds compared to when I first got started, and my voice and writing also carry so much more confidence than what it used to.

Conceptualizing within a fixed word count. I write predominantly flash fiction, pieces of roughly 600 words. I struggled early on trying to carry too large an idea in too small a space, and conversely, trying to take too small an idea and make it last longer than it realistically could. I've gotten much better at conceptualizing pieces that are ideally scoped to the word count I'm writing in, be that 6 words, 100 words, 600 words or longer. It's something I'm still working on, but it was a very difficult stage to get through.

Something that I've learned, and sometimes have to relearn, is that not everyone is going to love everything you write, even if you think whatever you've just written is a masterpiece. And sometimes you'll think you just created a steaming pile of shit, and people will love it anyway. In either scenario, it's easy to feel frustrated and down on yourself; the challenge is to keep going, to use these reactions as fuel to make yourself a better artist. And the other thing you have to remember, of course, is that it's not about you: Your art and your audience's reaction is not a referendum on you as a person, even if it feels like it. People are reacting to a thing you made, not you.

English language syntax. Applying theory to poetry strips the creative impulse for me. I haven’t learnt much and I still need to learn a lot.

What is it that you still need to learn about?

I need to practice my perseverance and discipline. I have so many ideas but I need to finish them. I start, but finishing is another thing. I need to conquer that challenge if I ever hope to accomplish any of my writing dreams.

Everything. There’s nothing that I’m done learning!

Simply put, everything. I think we're never done learning, even with the things we know about because we have habits and sometimes we're forgetful beings. At least I am. :P Though plotting is probably my weakest point and writing long-term. I have a tendency to push longer projects away or get overwhelmed with the length of a project. Those are both curable with the proper structure and the right push to actually get it written.

Sticking with a story and finishing it. I often tend to latch onto an idea, take the time to plot out the details, write half of it and then... stop. I don't know why and I always have an excuse for it but it's still unacceptable.

Possibly relearning things about fixed forms (on the technical side of writing) as well as just writing more prose. Learn how to “bend” and “move” characters in ways that I envision in my head; I also need to continue to learn how and when I can most effectively incorporate different poetic methods to keep readers guessing. That’s something I always have to continue learning about.

Effective narrative and expositional monologue. Both are deadly in short fiction, but necessary in longer works, and I lack practice in that regard.

The thing I still have to learn is technical: I'm still learning how to push my writing perspectives outside of my characters' heads so they can feel like real people who live in a fully visceral world, where they see and smell and touch things in a way that is unique to them. I either fall back into the rut of writing staying inside the character's head or including too much extraneous detail, but I'm working on it!

Have you ever had a mentor and what did you get out of the experience?

I've never really had a mentor. The closest I've had are my various school teachers, but none of those spent any extended one on one time with me. I can see where a mentor would be helpful and wish I'd had that experience.

Yes. My mentor Jessica Lee Anderson was also one of my first critique partners. She taught me a lot about the publishing industry and  has always been right at my side for every single bump in the road. She’s given me a lot of insight on writing YA, on developing believable characters, and making sure I keep the tension high in every single moment. She’s amazing. You should read her books. I highly recommend BORDER CROSSING and CALI.

Not a mentor per se, but my English teacher in 10th grade really, really pushed me as a writer and encouraged me to keep writing. She was always praising me when necessary and showed me how to fix the mistakes I'd made. She was truly interested in seeing me improve and that did wonders for my writing.

A true mentor? No. Individuals that read my work and offered me good honest critique? Definitely. I've valued that information over almost everything else I've ever learned simply because it pertained solely to me and not a class of students or broad spectrum of self help readers.

I never have actually. Not in theWrittenRevolution context or any other context, for that matter. The only “mentors” I had were my parents and grandmother but I’m not sure that really counts. Haha. But because my grandmother and dad, my writing has also flourished.

I haven't had a mentor for writing, although I've had people take a consistent and focused interest in my writing over a period of time, providing constant feedback and encouragement, which is a component (I believe) of mentoring. I found that feedback mechanism extremely valuable, and it pushed me to advance more quickly than I think I would have otherwise. It's easier to motivate yourself to improve when you feel like you'll be letting someone else down if you don't, and having someone constantly course correcting you as you go is very beneficial.

When I was in college, I majored in creative writing (short fiction), so my mentor at the time was my thesis advisor. It was amazing, first of all, to be able to work one-on-one with someone who was truly, unselfishly interested in helping me learn and grow as a writer. That aspect of the relationship was just as important as anything I learned from him — and man, I learned a lot, probably because he's a very different writer from me. The only way to describe his work is expansive — huge themes, enormous canvas (he's a born novelist), lots of emotion and heart — and my work is what he called a "silent screech." :lol: Although he supported my own style and the themes I wanted to work with, he also encouraged me to look beyond what I was familiar with, to broaden my scope in every way. That balance — the push and pull between what I was doing and what I could do, based on his own experience — made him a great mentor.

I wish it were so, but no.

How much is giving/receiving critique important, to you, to improve your writing?

Critiques are so very important. We should always listen to our readers' thoughts and advice, although we reserve the right whether or not to change our work. Others may have unique perspectives and insight that we may not have considered. They are potentially mentors, offering free advice. It would be a horrible loss to ignore that resource.

I find that critiquing others has been integral to learning to critique myself. And while I’ll never be without critique partners, it’s now easier to look at my own writing as if it’s someone else’s to see what’s wrong and, as they say, kill my darlings.

Receiving and giving critique is exceptionally important to do, as you can learn just as much from giving as receiving. Whether you are taking a critical eye to someone's work or your own, you are still gunning for the same end goal—improvement.

Devastatingly important. Receiving critique is obvious for improving writing but giving critique is just as important. Often we're able to spot flaws in others' writing better than we're able to spot it in our own; so by pointing those out we're able to learn things and hopefully apply the faults we see in others' lit to our own work. In addition to the faults, we're also able to see what is done well and work that into our own techniques.

Not very important, in truth. I rarely give critiques (I have to be directly asked to do so) and I don’t ever ask for any critiques. It’s not something I place value on because as a writer, we’re constantly growing and evolving in an art form that doesn’t have set “standards” about what quality is and isn’t. It’s all subjective so I rely on the natural changes and shifts in my style as opposed to any formal critiquing of my work.

Incredibly important. Critically important. It's hard to objectively view your own work, however in reading other people's work critically, you can learn a tremendous amount about your own writing and issues. I'm a better writer and editor without a doubt for the time I've spent reviewing and offering insights on other people's writing. I'm also very much indebted to those who have taken the time to read and critique my work, either reassuring me that what I'm doing isn't complete trash, or offering detailed feedback on what worked and didn't work for them, and how I might improve. I don't always make the changes people suggest, and often they are stylistic suggestions, and my style is my style, but I always take them seriously as that critical feedback helps me write more accessible and engaging work in the future.

I like receiving general feedback, and I like receiving creative suggestion. I’d still like to distance these things from ‘critique’ though. I’d feel horrible having someone spend their time analyzing my writing if I am not prepared to instigate major changes! (Usually I am not prepared to instigate major changes, it's just not the way I write. If I dislike something I wrote too much, I don't bother with it and just move on to the next thing).

If along the lines of feedback and creative suggestion I can really see where something could benefit from further work, I’ll take it on board. (Creative suggestion may sound vague. An example of creative suggestion is when someone once suggested I should take five poems about five photos and combine them into one piece. I turned it into an overview through a camera obscura and it became loads of fun, and added a lovely bent to that set of writing).

If I am really struggling with something I will ask for help.

How much is reading important, to you, to improve your writing?

I consider reading to be the most helpful tool for a writer. We learn (consciously or unconsciously) from our reading materials. This is most useful when we view our reading as an opportunity to learn: learn the authors' mistakes and successes.

It’s the most important thing. You need to be reading twice as much as you’re writing, if not more. This is where you learn new things. In your genre, outside of your genre. The more tools you have in your tool box, the more options you have as a writer.

SUPER, SUPER IMPORTANT. You need to read as much as you need to write because you're never done learning. You are always evolving, changing, and reading helps you learn new things, maybe even pushes you to try writing something you normally wouldn't.

It's essential, but I don't hold it as high as actually working on writing. It's important for the same reasons why giving critique to others is important. We can read literature and at the end decide what we liked and didn't like. What worked and didn't work. This is especially useful if we're reading in the same genre that we're writing.

Extremely important; about as important as consistently writing in itself. You can always pick up on little intricacies in someone’s writing, pick up on unique oddities that separate one writer from the pack of others with a similar niche, and even try new forms and styles because you read something similar elsewhere. Reading is extremely important and at the very least, I try to skim everyone’s works as often as I can. Reading has greatly improved my style, personally, so I believe it can be tremendous for anyone also seeking to continue growth in their writing.

Reading is equally as important to writing in my mind. I read all sorts of periodicals to keep me up on current technology and trends, and to keep feeding the idea machine. I also read a large amount of fiction, as the more time I spend marinating in the language of good writers, the most of that rubs off and invariably leads to better writing.

Extremely important, and I don't do nearly enough of it. If you want to write, you should read everything you can get your hands on: product copy, newspapers, screenplays novels, short stories, poetry, longform nonfiction, you name it. There's always something to be learned from a different form that you can use in your own writing. And make sure that you're not just reading — you have to think about what you're reading. If you like it, what's working? If you don't, what isn't? Even bad writing has something to teach you. Take what you like and leave the rest.

Reading expands the mind. Considered thought is a practise in itself. The mind is trained in certain ways when one reads. The considered thought comes in that moment when you stop to absorb what you have taken in. Writing for me is like breathing back out what I have breathed (taken in).

Who's your go-to writer for quality writing (it can be off DeviantArt, too of course) and why?

I adore Stephen King. He has a way with details and immersive characters. While I may not love every one of his works, each one has always impressed me.

I have about one million of these. But if the writers that I will try to read every time they have a new book out are Francesca Lia Block, Meg Rosoff, Douglas Coupland and Louise Glück. I also try and make sure that I just go and browse lit magazines and chapbooks at my local indie book store. Take a chance on new stuff!

raspil and for off DA I go everywhere. raspil has this amazing way of always striving to improve herself further and it shows in everything she does. Off DA I say I go everywhere because I don't just go to one writer, I go to multiple, because there are so many great writers out there and I haven't read them all yet.

On DA I go to thorns, TheTerrorOfTheDeep, linaket, HugQueen, squeezelouise, reechy and Sammur-amat. Off DA, I tend not to read too much modern literature. I have a thing for period dramas so I stick with Austen, the Bronte Sisters, Gaskell but recently I've gotten in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I think, again, it's because it's set back in time. Oh, and Shannon Hale, but not the Ever After High books. No no. I leave those to the teenage girls and stick with the Austenland books she's written."

That’s a tough one. If you put a gun to my head, I’d pick Lissomer. Her writings are the ones I understand and feel and “see.” She and I have discussed it at length and it probably makes so much more sense in the context of one of those conversations but she is absolutely phenomenal. Whenever I need extreme quality in every aspect of writing, she is the person I go to. She’s one of the best on deviantART in my humble opinion.

Neil Gaiman, William Gibson, Robert Morgan, and Ian Rankin. I value a varied diet of prose, and those four authors are incredibly engaging, both in their ideas and story telling abilities, and their effective use of language.

I've given this cliche answer probably a bunch of times, but my writing idol is F. Scott Fitzgerald, especially The Great Gatsby. That book is so precisely written, so precisely structured, that there's absolutely no fat on it. Everything does something. And yet, it's one of the most beautifully written, most poetic bits of prose I've ever read in my life. That's the kind of clean, aesthetic writing I aspire to.

Matsuo Basho; Kobayashi Issa; Rainer Maria Rilke; Ryokan; Richard Brautigan; Jack Kerouac. This listing is in no particular order. Oh, and for non poetry C.S. Lewis.

And finally, what piece of advice have you been given that has helped you the most?

Read. Read some more. Keep reading. I cannot express how much this advice has helped me. Reading allows us to view other authors as they practice their (and our) craft. It allows us to see how what writing practices work and which ones don't.

All writing is rewriting. I don’t think I realized HOW true this was until I’d been rejected about a million times. And then I revised and rewrote and revised and rewrote and started to see acceptances. The second most important advice is to be present – go to conferences, introduce yourself, mingle. Put yourself out there. Sometimes being in the right place at the right time can lead to good things – if you have the goods to back up your swagger, so to speak.

I'm going to repeat this a lot so I will keep it short "don't think you're ever done learning.

You're never done learning. No matter how good you think you are, you can always improve. Which is exactly why more experienced writers need to be helping less experienced writers. As long as we're always giving back, we can all improve at the same time. Because isn't it odd how sometimes we can give better advice than we write? We can learn by helping others.

It’s actually a piece of advice I allude to quite often (maybe too much), but it still means the world to me. My dad once told me that “our senses never fail us, only our judgment.” I rely on my intuition a great deal because of that and it’s not yet steered me wrong and I’m grateful for that.

Kathy Kachelries, who founded 365tomorrows with a group of friends, told me this early on about writing concisely and editing mercilessly; "Cut out everything you know you don't need, and half of what you think you do." It's that advice that makes it possible for me to create very contextually dense pieces within a very small footprint, something I wouldn't have been able to do before I became hyper aware of cutting out filler, before I was willing to destroy every single word I wrote without remorse.

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is in the form of a question: "But what does it do?" When my advisor asked me that, about anything (the setting, plot points, characterization, word choice, even how long or short I decided to make my paragraphs), what he meant was: How does this serve the story? How does it support the message or theme you're working with? And if I didn't have an answer, it had to go. When people tell you to kill your darlings, that's what they mean, I think -- get rid of the things that aren't actually doing anything for the story.

Well, it wasn’t said to me, but a common phrase is ‘just type’. We should never be scared of the blank page. If you jump the thoughts about “I can’t…” “I don’t know” and put your fingers to keyboard (or pen to paper) something can and will come out.


This concludes our first article of the tWR Interviews. I hope you enjoyed reading this, and that it gave you some good insight on writing. (: it wasn't meant to instruct on anything specific, but simply to give you an idea of what other writers found hardest to overcome, what they did overcome, what helps them and what doesn't. As you have read, everyone is a bit different! So maybe after all, there isn't a fixed RIGHT way to do things, there's the one that works for you and the one that works for me.

It's all about finding it.

All of the deviants interviewed here are definitely worth watching. You won't regret it.

Tom Hardy To Star In 3 More ‘Mad Max’ Films

So here’s some interesting news: Tom Hardy has announced that he’s committed to doing three more Mad Max movies after Fury Road, which comes to theaters next month. The trailers we’ve seen for Fury Road so far look absolutely stunning, and we’re cautiously optimistic about the prospect of having three more Mad Max films. On the one hand, we love Mad Max, and we love Tom Hardy, but on the other hand, is three more films bordering on too much of a good thing? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

‘The Muppet Show’ Returns?

So a project is currently in development that would closely resemble the old Muppet Show that was on TV back in the late 70s and early 80s. If you’ve never seen The Muppet Show, it’s pretty hilarious, and it spawned any number of classic bits still widely-known and referenced today. The show still has a way to go before being greenlit, but the success of the recent Muppets movies provides some hope that this is a project audiences will be eager to watch.

Why is Dad So Mad?
by Seth Kastle

Post Traumatic Stress Book

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects people all over the world, but it can be difficult for friends and family of someone who has it to understand what that person is going through. This is especially true for children of adults with the disorder. That’s why Seth Kastle, a US Army veteran who suffers from PTSD, decided to write “Why Is Dad So Mad,” a children’s book that seeks to explain the disorder to children. Kastle, a father, wrote the book about his struggle with PTSD to help his daughter understand what he’s going through. You can learn more about the book or order a copy of it here.

Play-Doh Movie

People seemed to really like The Lego Movie (it grossed approximately $250 million US) when it premiered last year, which means that any and all children’s toys remotely similar to LEGOs that can be bought by studios and turned into movies will be bought and, you guessed it, turned into movies. This trend is kicking off with Play-Doh, evidently, which Deadline is reporting Paul Feig may direct. Feig’s involvement could spell good things, as fans of Bridesmaids and The Heat can attest, but a lot could happen between now and the film’s premiere. We will refrain from holding our breath in the mean time.

First of all, we want you to know that you can believe everything you read here, even if it is April Fool’s and we might have told a fib or two elsewhere on the site. Consider the News Desk a hallowed ground. We’ll only tell you true facts here. We are indeed going to show you some of our favorite April Fool’s pranks from around DeviantArt and around the web, but we won’t try to fool you with any of these headlines. Thanks, as always, for reading.


Here are a few of our favorite April Fool’s pranks.

Book Club

The CRLiterature book club has “announced” their book selection for the month of April. Some may call it smut, but 50 Shades of Grey is the official selection so if you haven’t read it by now, this is the best excuse you’re going to get. April Fool’s! The real selection will be announced tomorrow.

Harnessing the Force
CERN physicist Valerio Rossetti

CERN Discovers The Force

Researchers at CERN posted confirmation that they had indeed discovered The Force (yes, the one from Star Wars) as a part of a Star-Wars themed April Fool’s prank. The press release, which you can read here, went heavy on the references including allusions to Yoda, Ben Kenobi, and “Dave” Vader. Considering the breadth and scope of the research currently being done at the Large Hadron Collider, we think it’s a good sign that they know how to have a little fun.

Nature: Dragons Are Real

Another of our favorite April Fool’s pranks came out of the science world today, as confirmed the existence of dragons. Citing some ancient texts and a correlation between global temperature patterns and references to dragons in literature,’s April Fool’s prank is one that we wish were true.

Premium Island

You may be wondering where the money from your premium memberships go, and this April Fool’s prank has the answer: that’s right, you’re looking at the DeviantArt island. Again, this is one that we really wish was true.

Amazon Redesign

Some of the best April Fool’s pranks are the ones that offer an experience rather than try to fool you. Yesterday we told you about Google Maps’s Pac Man feature, and today we are giving some major snaps to Amazon, who threw back to a super 90s version of their site in honor of this hallowed internet holiday. They also loaded the homepage with a couple of jokes, but then allow users to quickly navigate back to the real site so that they can get back to browsing prices on Lord of the Rings blu-rays with ease.

Amazon Button
by Amazon

Amazon Buttons Are A Real Thing

First Amazon giveth and then Amazon taketh away, apparently. While we commend them for their April Fool’s efforts, the online megastore has also announced that it will be making branded buttons that automatically order household items that you commonly run out of. With the devices, you can put a little Tide button on your laundry machine, and when you’re running low on detergent, you press the button and in two to five business days you receive some more. The announcement was viewed as a joke by many because of its proximity to April Fool’s and also because holy cow have we really gotten to the point as a society that we are too lazy to even walk to our computers or god forbid get out our phones to place online orders when we run out of stuff? I mean they already have one-click shopping on Amazon, why do we need this? Excuse us as we bury our heads in the sand for the rest of the day.

It’s Poetry Time

Calling all aspiring poets! Today marks the beginning of NaPoWriMo is ON! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a poem every day for the entire month of April. If you’re staring at a blank page, not to worry, SingingFlames has posted some prompts to help you get started.

Interstellar Honest Trailer

The folks at Screen Junkies have given a pretty spectacular and not entirely undeserved sendup to Christopher Nolan’s 2014 blockbuster Interstellar. We aren’t going to lie to you, we thoroughly enjoyed that movie, but as usual Honest Trailers does a pretty great job of pointing out some of its fundamental flaws. Plus, it’s just hilarious.

Hang Out On An Asteroid

How is NASA so cool all the time? Probably because they’re dedicated to exploring and understanding space. We’re mildly freaking out over this virtual tour of Vestra, the second-largest asteroid in our solar system. The tour interface is reminiscent of Google Earth, and has some snazzy features that let you explore and see all there is to see on this huge space rock. This is just so cool.
