Out of reach, "It just sucks dude cause there is nothing I can do about it." Carson spits over the ledge of the deck in frustration and takes another swig of the Malibu rum. "If she didn't have a boyfriend shit would be so much different right now."Out of reach by PhoenixDaimon
The party at the Alpha Sigma Rho house is monstrous, the annual pre-finals week "fiesta" always attracted a large crowd. Everyone on campus hears about the party, but only a select few make "the list", the infamous guest list for the hottest party all year. The list includes all of the sorority girls, hopeful recruits, the Alpha Sigma active chapter, and the lowly pledges. Everyone is having a good time with the exception of Carson.
"Honestly dude, just tell her how it is man." stammers Justin, Carson's fraternity brother who is affected by the large amount of alcohol he has consumed throughout the evening.
"If it was that easy believe me I would have done it by now." he takes another swig and looks across the sand volleyball pit to see some drunk gir
The Lonely Student In ManayunkI was just an average kid at schoolThe Lonely Student In Manayunk by xandermartin98
Everything felt so void and null, not to mention dull
But one day I gave a white slip to my father
And went somewhere that school couldn't bother
Last Wednesday night, I prepared without fright
I packed my backpack like an ace - what did you expect it to be, a f****** suitcase?
I had a good night's sleep and I didn't make a peep.
I took a nice cold freezing shower and my clothes came from a heap.
I said goodbye to my dad and I hopped onto my bus.
It took us down to Cherry Hill with no muss and no fuss.
YALE School Cherry Hill, such a wonderful building.
But as I waited for the bus to come, my patience was rather wilting.
We stepped onto our fancy bus for we had paid our fees without being whiny.
It wasn't particularly fancy, but it was definitely clean and shiny.
We talk each other's ears off but we always trust each other.
Most students have a sister and/or brother but I only had a mother.
We reached our destination, it was just a big old dormhouse
It Was Never You...It really wasn't...It Was Never You... by WordOfChen
And I know that I can twist this truth as much as I want...
Whenever I'm sober, when I know I can put up that fake plastic smile;
Just a few formal words that burn like acid from a liar's lips!
"Differences in personality, a divergence in ideals..."
Please, fucking, SPARE ME!
Because when I look in this mirror, I know.
When I see myself looking back at me, I know.
Right here, right in front of my own blackened self;
Those eyes that both reflect and stare into my dingy soul.
I was the problem.
I was the instigator.
I was the perpetrator.
And when I had broken every last bit of her,
I was the one, who let it all fall to pieces.
So please, you don't have to feel sorry for me,
I am a bastard and I've got a very special place in hell waiting for me...

Perfectly ComfortableYou are comfortable now,Perfectly Comfortable by WordOfChen
Though tired from your day at work.
You lay your head upon the pillow,
And you start to fall asleep...
It is quiet in your apartment,
The silence is soothing.
You soon begin to dream,
And though your dream is initially pleasant...
Something seems to be off in the things you see around you.
You find yourself walking through the streets,
The old pavement beneath your apartment.
It looks like it always has except for all those cracks in the stone.
Crick-crack, crick crack.
You turn your eyes from the paving,
To see the streets lined with people.
Shivering, grim; their eyes hold little hope,
Save for a warm night' meal.
You begin to feel a little more frightened.
Your tie is getting pretty tight.
You stagger into your office, your lips going blue.
You try to alert someone,
But your colleagues no longer have faces...
They are simply mouths, large and unrelenting,
Belting you with a storm of words that drowns you out.
You are silenced, in a world

Tips For Art-Writing BlockWriter's and Artist's block--Everyone's nightmare. We've all been there, and if you haven't yet, then trust me, you will. So I decided to put together a little thing on what you can do to either stay out of a block or to get out of a block.Tips For Art-Writing Block by sonia555
Take a Break
So, haven't we all heard this one? Believe me, though. It is true. My dad always suggests when I'm on an artist's block to put it down for a day and write a story. Play a video game, read a book. Geez, study for that quiz on Wednesday! Do something else, as long as that something else doesn't involve getting you killed. Also, don't force yourself to draw or write something if you're on a block. Believe me, (I've tried) it'll turn out absolutely horrible. I suppose the only exception to this would be an art or writing homework assignment (For us students) that's due the next day.
Ok, I know above I said not to force yourself to draw. Perhaps I should've said something like, "Don't force you
On The Use Of DeathA little bit of helpful advice to those young padawan writers out there. The following applies to the writers of ALL prose, no matter what genre you're in, so listen up.On The Use Of Death by blizzardwolf1
Death in the use of storytelling is a very tricky thing, and I've seen plenty of writers and even filmmakers screw it up with the greatest of ease.
Now, please, don't get me wrong, death is a VERY powerful and emotionally motivating tool to use in prose, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not your story is cream or crap. By all means, it's there to be made use of, but you've got to remember that it's no arbitrary thing.
First of all, once you've made the decision to kill a characters, once it's been deemed by the events of your writing that an important person has to die, it has to have meaning behind it, or at least surrounding it. Either they've nobly sacrificed their lives for their loves and comrades, or they've become so depressed and withdrawn they finally turn to suicide for an escape, or their death h
Writing Paranormal CharactersAs a writer of prose, you may at some point to want to write about a character or characters which are paranormal. We could perhaps debate over the exact definition of the word paranormal, and some may prefer supernatural - a word more closely associated with magic, whereas paranormal tends to be taken to mean something outside the realms of science (though of course, it is not as clear-cut as that, and you may like to think that I am wrong in saying this).Writing Paranormal Characters by simplyprose
For the purposes of this guide, both paranormal and supernatural refer to conscious beings, not found in the animal kingdom, that differ in some way to what I controversially call normal humans (some paranormal beings may be human, in part or in whole). To give some well-known examples: ghosts, vampires, witches, werewolves and mermaids all fall into this category. The details, of course, are up to the writer. If you t

|Below you will find the name of all, current, official critiquers ((Which, you must admit, sounds a lot better than Critics. Plus, it better describes our intent.))|
These Critiquer's are the awesome few who have volunteered their time in order to go through the various pieces of literature, drawing, or, other, in order to offer their own constructive critiques. Any member of DA, whether admin, group member, or simply a watcher, may volunteer.
However, anyone asking (rather than getting invited) to be a Contributor to this group must volunteer, or otherwise prove that they're offering something special to the group.
If you feel like your art has been overlooked, feel free to note one of those below - but do try to remember that they don't all have as much free time as i do.
