Reasons to love dA's Literature Community
Today, November 3rd, is the last day to send me in your reason!
Love dA Lit is turning one hundred! One-hundred weeks that is. In that time I've really come to appreciate how active and passionate the Literature Community on dA is; this community is truly amazing and I'm honored to be a part of it. And what better way to celebrate than to spread a little love and hand out some prizes? It's also a good excuse for me to hug you all.
So why do you love dA's Literature Community?
Share what you love about the Lit Community, your reason doesn't need to be long, it could be a few words or a few sentences. Be as specific or general as you want!
Anyone can participate. Even if you don't 'include' yourself in the Literature Community you can still send me a note! As the wise neurotype said "The dA Literature community is not homogenous. It's all of these different groups coming together, the same way a city has a hundred and a half neighborhoods that do their things but bleed over around the edges to form a whole massive thing with all kinds of stellar, interesting points."
Maybe you know someone who is involved in the Lit Community, admired the effort of a Lit Project, received a helpful critique/comment, or you've lurked the literature forums, but never got involved. If you can think of a reason to love dA's Literature Community it counts and I want you to share it with me!
At the end of this project I will be posting an article with all the compiled reasons!
Have a reason?
All you have to do is send me a note with the subject "Reasons to Love dA's Lit Community" or, if that's too long, "Community Project". As long as it's along the lines of those, I'll take it!
The deadline to send me your note is November 3rd, 11:59PM EST (What time is that for me?)

Chat Event: Campfire Ghost Story![Over]
Don't scream in pure terror from poetry or run from prose like an axe murder was chasing you through the blood country, after all you could win some prizes!
We'll supply a prompt and you have ten minutes to write a poem or flash-fiction piece based on that prompt. I do have some points to give away to some of the best pieces! Special thanks to Memnalar for the idea.♥
2x 50 Points from IrrevocableFate
2x 100 Points from thorns

This would be an excellent way to jump start your entry for the All Hallow's Tales Contest - BLOOD COUNTRY or Poetry Screams Prompt Contest.
Your poem or story will probably need a bit of polishing and Writers-Workshop is having an all critique workshop to help you with those contest entries.
Much, much, much love to SadisticIceCream for coming up with the idea, helping me plot and being wonderful!
Lots more thank you's to Memnalar and Evlydia for allowing themselves to be subjected to my plotting and over excited typing!
