The Illusionist by james-the-game
I deal from a pack of lies;

But you're forced to love me instead,
Because I live inside your head...read more

ThornyEnglishRose's Big Children's Literature FeatSince about November of last year (starting with a staff position at the wonderful WordCount), I have been doing my very best to expose existing and generate new children's literature on deviantART.ThornyEnglishRose's Big Children's Literature Feat by ThornyEnglishRose
I've also written quite a bit of my own, which can always be found here if you one day felt inclined.
I could go on, but this is a feature, and it doesn't need a long explanation for where it all came from. I shall let these great pieces speak for themselves! (Okay - with a little introduction where I deem it necessary.)
Three pieces never before featured: (to the best of my knowledge)
:iconEbeho: 'Rooster's Story' by Ebeho
As you'll see in the accompanying comments, the author of this piece was challenged to write a love story about chickens. Everyone knows chickens are funny. Read this sweet, well-written tale of romance and see what images fill your head!
The Great War Literature Contest .I have decided to start a contest, where you, must make a piece of Poetry or Prose on the subject of "War".The Great War Literature Contest . by RainbowStarDust
Because War is all around us. Not just people killing others, fighting for land, fighting for peace, but any kind of War. War in families. War in schools. War in love.
Its everywhere, and it is very interesting to see peoples feelings about different typs of War.
Just write anything inspired by the word War
Prose cannot be over 1000 words. Of course I don't mean 1000 words on the dot, but around that area. I'm not going through every piece of prose, and counting the words.
Poetry can contain 50 lines or less.
Every literary form accepted.
Only one submission per person.
I would like all submissions in by

July 4th Feature from the Artisan Crafts GalleryThese are works by artisans reflecting the past 232 years of the U.S.A. since its birth as a nation. Admittedly there is a predominance here on the American west, particularly the old west, but I have had my own romance with the American west ever since I first saw those "amber waves of grain" under a peculiarly spacious, turquoise sky on a lonely highway somewhere between western Nebraska and Cheyenne. And there, thirty years ago this month, I was first struck by the "big sky," somehow it just seems higher in the west, giving the illusion that it's bigger and more spacious. And in those 30 years I have seen the forests and woodlands, mountains, rainforest, canyonlands, rangelands, deserts, and the Pacific Ocean; the logging and clearcutting, mining, and irrigation; the dust storms, volcanoes, and earthquakes, and all that points to the vastness and what is beautiful and not so beautiful about the American west.July 4th Feature from the Artisan Crafts Gallery by Kitten-of-Woe

I can't believe five years have passed so quickly without you, Pip--and yet, they still seem slow when compared to the years I had with you. Wherever you are, I hope I'm making you proud.
Creidimis sa Tsíoraíocht.
I ache when the world does, and maybe that's a bit too much ego, and maybe that's just a little too close to cowardice, but it's the putting in rather than the putting on that makes another's shoes uncomfortable. Empathy isn't a promise to feel as another feels, to have walked as another's walked. Empathy is the understanding that I ache, and you ache, and it's the aching where we meet--rather than the road that brought us to it. I don't know your pain, and you don't know mine, but that's okay. We don't have to share an injury to acknowledge a wound.
You may call me Bill or Pip. I'm a twenty-something editor, a self-professed punctuation junkie with a penchant for words, and a Catholic. I am also a very private, shy homosexual living my day-to-day between New York City and Oxford.|
I like talking about sex, politics, books, relationships, religion, grammar, philosophy, literature, music, baseball and football. I have an old obsession with black and white movies and anything noir, and a true appreciation for Jimmy Stewart, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, and Cary Grant.
We'll probably get on well if you know who Robbe-Grillet is, enjoy Borges or Nabokov, can admit to liking Oscar Wilde, hate James Joyce and John Steinbeck, like Keats, appreciate Donne, and believe that Baldwin and Capote are among the greatest American writers in literary history.
Or, if reading isn't your thing, hit me up with a "Hello!" I welcome random IMs and notes.
