Of stating my thoughts
And my dreams.
Come with a high price.
If you take a simile
(Stretch it, spin it,
Weave a web)
It is nonsense.
Complete, utter nonsense.
Tell me what it is like
To have stardust in your veins -
"Frostbitten veins stitched with
And forgotten gods" -
For autophobic ghosts
Reside in my head,
Howling their epiphanies
On a moonless summer night.
Hence my need for pretty words
And secondhand devices.
Am I right to be afraid?
They told me
Being a poet is easy;
Just amplify your pain
And air it out
On the clothesline of life.
(But what if I wish to cry
In a corner
Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists by Kawiku
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in
Writer's Block: Of Course It's RealLiterature BasicsWriter's Block: Of Course It's Real by WorldWar-Tori
Ever feel like no matter what you do, you just. can't. write?
You're not alone. Many other writers have been in the same situation, left frustrated and exhausted trying to get through this. But what can you do about it?
What is Writer's Block?
According to wikipedia
"Writer's block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce work for years.
Steps to Overcoming Writers Block
Quit. At least for now, take a step back and breathe. The more you struggle the more worked up you become and the worse the block seems to get. Before anything else, give your mind a break for a bit and come back. Sometimes that's all you even need to do. Remember, your mind, just like your body needs rest.

Don't let the crap of the internet brainwash you.warning: This journal is my opinion and my view on things. I support open-mindedness and the possibility of anything.Don't let the crap of the internet brainwash you. by Suzanne-Helmigh
The internet is full of it: People with strong opinions. Usually about 'how to do things' and 'how to absolutely not do things'.
Ask any given person this question: What is good art?
They will all give you a different answer and some of those answers are waaaay to specific for their own good.
Meaning they have a very specific view on what is good and see other work that does not meet up those qualifications as: bad, fake or cheating.
It is natural to have a preference toward certain topics or techniques when making art, but it's wrong to push those ideas upon others as a set of rules. (kinda like forcing someone into a religion)
Art should be a free medium for people to express themselves, even if this means their work goes against your standards or deems unpleasant for your taste.
