Still scrambling to find people to feature, I'm afraid I'll run out soon. Please send me some suggestions, everyone! Anyway, this weeks feature is a girl who's poetry can be considered a little... dark. Centering many times around addiction and depression, her words speak loudly. This weeks featured artist is.....
Though not always dark, she has poems that are more... bittersweet. Her poetry forms are unique and leave a message you're not likely to forget anytime soon! Though they may tear your mind away from the thoughts of sunshine and force you to think about reality! But in a good way! Depression and addiction are tough lights to look into, so let Grace help you with her clever arrangement of words!

There you have it! Go look through her gallery and enjoy it like I'm sure all who go through it do as well!
Also, please leave me suggestions for next week's feature. This is something I 100% love doing, but finding good artists is really hard and I could use all the help I could get! Any help at all is very much appreciated! Thanks
Strangely Beautiful, Chapter 6I hadn't had much success with the horse riding. Falling off a good five times before my uncle decided it'd be best to just take the truck across the way for now. Though, lessons were in order. The teasing never ended. My uncle threw around so many insults disguised as ignorance.
Chapter 6 of my story Strangely Beautiful. Strangely Beautiful centers around Violet, a girl who's recently moved away from her hometown in California to Avera, Georgia after attempting her life. What will happen to her in this town surrounded by family? You'll have to read to find out.
A long while ago, me and my best friend, CelestialMemories created a group! Series-Unknown Though she's done most of the work, I get involved as much as I can. We've started a monthly challenge!
This group is for you writers out there! Ones who write really long stories and/or chapter works! We plan to have several contests and challenges when we get in working order, so come check us out! We'd love to have you in our group!
We all have our favorite created characters. We make attachments to them because of their knowledge, fashion, bravery, etc. The hero that saves the girl, the bad ass demolition expert on the front line of a war, you name it. We create these characters to tell a story; their story.
A story isn't complete without a main character, so we spend countless hours thinking up their backgrounds, all for the sake of our writing. So, that being said, your challenge this month is to take your favorite character and create their polar opposite.
That's right! You'll have to write something around your character's altered personality! If they're usually positive, they're negative for this challenge! But wait, there's more! By polar opposite, I don't just mean their personalities. If they have a cat, it's a dog now! They have glorious hair? Now they're bald! Okay, maybe not that extreme, but it's all up to you!

WW 0: The Scene A disorienting throb of bass and blinding lights was all she could make of the scene. She kept her head down as she fought through the limbs and hot sweating bodies that had somehow sucked her in. Wondering how she had ever managed to wander too close to the vortex, she forced her way out to the edge of the pulsing mass of people. The pathway to a less crowded adjacent room was blocked by a white leather couch and a separate clot of bodies that had separated itself from the chaos in the center. She stopped shoving her way through the crowd to try and find a different escape, but a stumbling girl in a skimpy glittering dress lit with a multitude of glow sticks stepped on her foot and toppled onto her. The girl giggled and mumbled an alcohol laden apology beneath the bass of the music before moving on to a different mass of moving bodies.
The current song died out, bringing a lull in the noise. Taking advantage of the pause she dodged
Hey! My name is Chase and I am a writer! I'm currently working on two chapter stories!
I have a story called The Loudest Echoes, which I am working on alone, and am very proud that it has gotten as far as it has!
I also roleplay! In fact, I love roleplaying! If you'd like to roleplay with me, leave me a note!
I also have a story called Strangely Beautiful! Which has also gotten just as far in the short time I've been writing it!
I'm a poet as well if you couldn't tell by my gallery
I'm really into music! In fact, my dream in life is to be a recording artist! I'm currently in the chorus program of my school and loving every day of it! Winter has passed and we just went on our Busch Gardens trip! I enjoyed every bit of it and even rode my first roller coaster. It was incredibly fun
I have a few friends who you can also find on deviantart!
MY MOIRAIL! Who is a writer, working on prose works as well as occasional poetry! Her work is definitely worth a look! If you watch closely you'll see us fighting because secretly we hate each other! AND I WILL DESTROY HER SQUIRTLE SQUAD WITH MY METAPOD ARMY!
I don't really have a lot of conversation with Brent. But when I do, it always involves Kalliope and whatever weird topic we're on at that moment.
Who is also a writer! A poet, she is! She writes amazing poetry that has left my mind awake at night wondering about the beautiful selection of words she uses! Also worth a look!
I spend a lot of my time on skype with Kalliope(CelestialMemories)! We've watched a lot of movies and TV shows lately. All of which have been either disgusting or horrible. Really. We watched Birdemic. Don't know what that is? Go look it up, watch five minutes of it and get back to me so I can tell you we also watched Birdemic 2.
ASKDJGAHDJKLSGHJ SO! My bestest friend EVAR made me something and ;-; HAPPY TEARS!
