Who Cares About the Literature Community?A few days ago we had a chat to discuss community issues and solutions (see the original journal for details). Huge thanks to everyone who came and raised awesome points!
It took 45 minutes for the volume of talk to max out Sta.sh Writer's character limit and this chat went for two more hours, so I'm just going to summarize the key discussion points, starting with big actionables for #CRLiterature and for the community.
I've put the chat stuff lower down as it's denser: the outside bullet is the issue, and the inside bullet is possible solutions (not necessarily in order, each point is really a response to the original issue). There is a lot to think about in there, but feel free to pick and choose the issues you care most about.
Sorry for leaving a lot of stuff out, but I hope you guys are too busy figuring out how best to act on what we discussed to pay too much attention

Creepypasta: Grimm RipperHave you ever been afraid of being bullied? Have you ever felt death was upon you during those times? Bullies...It's just something we can't avoid; They come, when the come, that's how it goes. But what if it was just the other way around...Like, the victim..Would torment the bully...?
A boy by the name of Grimm was just moving by into a new neighborhood along with his father, Clyde. His father drove his truck and took him around the new town they had to live in and get used to it. Grimm took a look around as he had a smile on his face, and lets out a chuckle.
"You like the place, son?"
"Yeah, it could be worst. I could do some Parkour around here"
"I got a good feeling about this," his Clyde said, he spoke too soon. Clyde had a smile on his face as he drove onto their new farmhouse. The two went out of the truck, as Clyde inhaled the athmosphere deeply.
"The air smells good around here, don't you think, son?"
"If you like manure and cows, then yes," he said. Clyde pats him by the shou
Fantastic Feature Tuesday #43... is on Thursday this week, guys! Heh... Sorry.
Please this news article so it will reach a larger audience!
This is a weekly feature of amazing literature that I come by during my
travels across deviantART. This is only a small sample of a vast amount
of wonderful pieces of literature written by absolutely fantastic
writers. Each deviation was carefully selected from a writer's gallery
based on structure, impact and word usage. I will never feature the
same person twice (though this gets harder to keep track of
now that we can change usernames), so check out these lovely writers now while you can!
New Survey Process
Hellllllloooooooo everyone! It's been like forever since we chatted last. Aside for being angry at us for slacking the last couple months, how are you all? Your pairings still holding up? Are you still waiting for a pairing? Do you need a new partner? Are you ready to assassinate the staff because we're so behind?
Don't answer that last one.
We're WAY behind with getting pairings done, and it's because we're all running busy schedules. So after a little pow-wow, we've come up with a new and improved way of getting your surveys into us. We'll no longer be manually entering each survey into our database (which is VERY time consuming, by the way). Instead, we're going to direct potential beta readers and writers to an outside survey (hosted through GoogleDocs, so it's completely safe and virus free, we promise! If you find it otherwise, `thorns will serve up `GrimFace242's skull on a spike for all to throw

Palabras de amor-liam mi editor (part4)nota: me enorgullece decir que esta es la ultima parte del capitulo 1. no se, tengo ganas de volver esta novela en una audio novela (como esto:https://soundcloud.com/dianavazk3z/el-ultimo-vals-audionarracion)¿que opinan? y gracias a todos los que me acompañan en esta novela (leyendo) un abrazo.
-¿de qué hablas?
-me traicionaste, arruinaste nuestra relación.
El amor es sin duda la herida más peligrosa, pues duele, sientes como se te parte el alma pero…. En realidad esa herida no está ahí. Una decepción amorosa puede obligarnos a hacer locuras, cosas que no seríamos capaces de imaginarnos.
Tras haber escuchado a Liam decir que Alice estaba enamorada de él, Mino perdió por completo la cordura, mientras corría bajo la lluvia su mente creo una historia en donde Alice y él habían sido amantes y ella le había engañado con Liam; y su mente no puedo diferenciar lo que era real a lo que no. Esto a su vez
Cooking up LifeToday I decided to make some Mr. Noodles in the microwave.
I put the noodles in a bowl, but they were sticking out. So I had to break them.
I put the water in the bowl, and of course put it in the microwave.
It took some time, because it took longer than i expected.
When I heard the timer, I would go to the microwave and check the noodles.
As I had to check and check, I noticed they began to get softer and softer.
Eventually when they were done, I took the bowl out, grabbed my fork and placed it on the table.
I began eating.
As I was about 60% done, I thought about how I broke the noodles to get it to fit in the bowl.
And then it hit me.
We, are Mr. Noodles.
We start off as noodles, very easy to break.
Then as we get older (cooked more), we get softer, and less easy to break.
Eventually we're so soft, we're not as easy to break like before.
But we're still breakable. Adults are still breakable.
No matter how strong they may seem, they are breakable.
But then it depends on their surroun

Autism's FriendIn Boston Massachusetts, an orphanage held many of the children who lost their parents when they were very young. On specific child who lived there was very different than the others. She had Apsergers, a specific type of Autism, and the people who took care of her didn't know much about her condition. They always thought she was stubborn and aggressive, but her disorder was just making her stressed out. She would have many stims that made her look like she had spasms, but were expected with her disorder. She would always cry outside by a tree with her stuffed owl she would never get rid of. Her condition made her obsessed with owls, and the people thought she was sick and planned to send her to an institution if she didn't 'improve'. One cloudy, brisk day, she sat by the tree and clutched her owl.
'I wish I had a friend who likes owls and understands me…' she thought.
A rustle in the bushes startled her. When she turned around, nothing was there. She had an Autistic fear of monsters a
Cinta itu... (Love is...)Versi Bahasa Melayu:
Cinta itu bodoh, bukan?
Tiada kaki, tangan dan mulut,
Tapi pandai-pandai pula mencari cinta di seluruh dunia,
Tanpa mengenal siapa pun pasangan yang akan digandingkan bersama,
Tidak kiralah kulitnya hitam ataupun putih,
Itu membuktikan CINTA BUKAN PERKAUMAN!
Cinta itu pelik, bukan?
Tiada tangan untuk menulis ayat-ayat cinta,
Tiada kaki untuk berjalan-jalan bersama yang tersayang,
Tiada mulut untuk bermadah cinta,
Apa yang mereka ada hanyalah PERASAAN,
yang kadang-kala boleh buat pasangan merasa suka dan duka serta segala memori; pahit mahupun manis sepanjang musim percintaan,
Kerana CINTA ADALAH LAHIR DARI HATI!
Cinta itu rumit, bukan?
Bergaduh, mengutuk pasangan masing-masing,
Tapi berbaik dan berkasih sayang semula selepas berdamai,
Linangan air mata kegirangan terbit di mata si dara,
diiringi dengan senyuman lembut daripada si teruna,
Itulah yang dinamakan CINTA ITU ADIL!

Tras un largo y mudo silencio, Liam finalmente habló –pero el concepto me agrada… es sobre una princesa con corazón de hielo ¿no?.
Alice se admiró y contrajo su sonrisa –mmm… sí. El concepto básico es una chica con corazón de hielo que daña a otros, entonces conoce a un chico llamado caballero de azafrán, del cual se enamora-.
-entonces piensa como ella… ¿Cuál fue el problema de principio? ¿Cómo llego a ser así? ¿Qué cosas van a influir en ella para cambiar?- Alice se admiró ante esta observación de Liam, tal vez su narración si estaba algo carente de intensidad pensó mirándolo fijamente, hasta que con esa ronca voz Liam le gritó -¡¿esperas invitación?.
-Trae algo para escribir, ya estas retrasada.
Alice con velocidad corrió a su habitación por su computadora portátil. Lo que sentía en el pecho no estaba segura de si era indicios de un paro cardiaco, miedo, amor, confusión o nervios….

Summery: People often wander why Matt is so emotionless.
Towns were always so small, and centred main story plots. It was as if all authors who couldn't come up with a single place in the world could pin point them and tag it into there novel making it seem important. They could be run down towns or the happy-go-lucky town that everyone flocked to in short attempts of escape from there own hell. They gave either: a darkest hint of rebellion and lost hopes and dreams, or the welcome cheery folk that everyone would prefer. These towns were always small and always seem to have to many people living there for really a good number, with there run-down or bright homes, brainwashed people that would all one day die and be nothing but dust, and the awful smell of smog in both relations of the towns. Towns were small, centred, and Mathieu had lived in one all his life.
Mathieu was the sort of boy that was not expected to even live in a to

Durante el camino al colegio el silencio dominó, alejando a aquel duo que caminaba bajo la sombrilla, Alice alzo el rostro disimuladamente para ver a su acompañante quien parecía estar perdido entre el barullo de la llovizna –no te parece hermoso- dijo Liam mostrando su dentadura marfil sin mirar a Alice quien se mostró desconcertada -¿hablas de la lluvia?-
-sí. Siempre me trae ideas de nuevas historias… ¿a ti que te inspira a escribir?- cuestionó con cierto aire de filósofo, Alice se encogió de hombro y su mirada pareció perderse entre el sendero mojado –no necesito inspiración, solo necesito recordar lo que viví en algún pasado- Liam se sorprendió, en su vida jamás había estado con alguien que compartiera esa pasión por la escritura, entreabrió los labios pero Alice de adelanto –aquí está mi colegio, te agradecería si no hubieras estropeado mi sombrilla- explicó mientras caminaba hacia e
Works to come near the middle(or end) of the monthAs Febuary comes to a close: let us tell you our goals for the works to be completed at the end of the month:
1. Chapter Three of MLwNF will be a definite. (and maybe chapter four too if asshats give my bro his internet)
2. Chapter Eight of the Chevlar Files. (It's coming together as we speak.)
3. A new mini series that discusses the "concepts" part of our goal to demoralize things others may hold dear. (two-three buddies who work as waiters have semi intelligent discussion while basically degrading diners of their place of business in a classic "Clerks" type of fashion, but with our own twists thrown in it.)
