Get Lucky! In honor of St. Patrick's Day, allow me to introduce another contest built around a single theme: luck.Get Lucky! by GeneratingHype
Good or bad, luck is often considered a driving force in our daily lives. Drop the word in dA's search function and you'll find 54,000 deviations strong. With that in mind, we thought it'd be a great idea to focus our lucky energies on creating art that exemplifies and epitomizes that theme.
Take a picture, write a poem, tell a story, bake a cake--find inspiration in whatever your talent is or simply in the world around you. We will be looking for excellent composition, an attention to craft, and an original approach to the theme. The rest is up to you!
So, are you feeling lucky?
Create a new deviation based around the "luck" theme; it can deal with good luck or bad luck--or a hundred things in between--but it must have a noticeable connection to "luck".

The fotoFRIDAY Challenge: Results!Hope your friday was a good one.The fotoFRIDAY Challenge: Results! by fotoFRIDAY
As fotoFRIDAY's twenty-fifth week anniversary closed in, we decided to celebrate by holding a contest based on a photo prompt. We received many fantastic and well-written pieces of both poetry and prose; it was an absolute pleasure to read all of your work and see how each person reacted differently to the photo provided.
And from all those wonderful pieces, we chose two winners that went above and beyond. Not only were they excellent examples of poetry and prose, but offered unique perspectives and were presented as finished or nearly finished pieces.
We present to you the winners!
Of Sunsets by IfrozenspiritI
Netting Fairies by SparrowsTakeRoot
Both winners will receive:
A copy of alienhead's new novel,
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.
