The #deviantartapp represents the fast moving, changing pace of this community, not just through the art we create, but the community we've built and will continue to grow.
Like a true writer!
My grandmother told me stories of how the #DeviantArtApp would visit the house while I slept and leave me candy and presents in hidden places.

As I grew older, and the candy and the presents never appeared, I stopped believing. Then I fell in love, and we had children of our own. I had all but forgotten Grandmother's old tales, until one bright December morning when my little boy burst from his bedroom, arms laden with candy and toys. "Dada! Dada!" he exclaimed, "I found them in my shoes! And under the bed! And in my dresser drawers! All over!"

I shed a tear.  And then, I told him the story.

The #DeviantArtApp was real.

Changes


So deviantART has been having a bit of a facelift, what do people think?

I first felt a little anticlimactic about it all after the buildup, especially with the introduction of a new logo, but then it didn't affect the way I used dA so was quite indifferent. Companies re-brand all the time, its probably the right time for dA to do it too. Do I like the logo? I like the simplicity and I like the green, but it doesn't quite feel like it screams "THIS IS DEVIANTART AND WE'RE AWESOME", but maybe that is because I'm so used to the old logo. Maybe in time it will feel different.

However, today I did download the app and I LOVE it! I think it makes browsing on smartphones work and I like the direction it is heading. Browsing seems... easier (not that it was hard before), and I actually think literature has been thought about on how it looks on the app. I really like it and actually see myself potentially reading more because of it, especially as I commute home a few nights a week and need something to occupy my time that doesn't drain my phone the way safari does. I like the way it is heading.


Critmas!


My annual critique fest contest is back on December 24th! For those who don't know about it, Critmas is a challenge where you are encouraged to write 12 critiques over the 12 days of Christmas. Last year we managed to get 158 critiques in total and everyone who completed the challenge went into a prize pool and won prizes selected at random. It's a really great contest, not limited to literature and I will say, some of the prizes this year are awesome!

If you happen to have any prizes to give, I am looking for all sorts! Whether its points, features, prints, arty things, icons, free commissions for arty things or ridiculously random gifts (within limit, I don't want people sending roadkill to people!), then I am interested! Drop me a note or leave me a message below with your prize donation and how many of each prize (i.e. 5 X features or 100 points). I would really appreciate the support!

Keep an eye out on the 24th and when you see the critmas journal, pimp it, tweet it, share it and generally wave your hands in the air with excitement! oh and write critiques :D


Christmas!


Only 14 days till Christmas! I've had this week off work to prep as my family are coming to stay this weekend, so we're having a "fake christmas" to celebrate. This involves going on a 5K Parkrun, a three-course christmas meal, moustaches on sticks and trivial pursuit. I am looking forward to it very much! Then actual christmas day shall just be my husband, child and I on a much quieter day with less fuss, which I like! 

I bought the most adorable nativity set today

What are your Christmas plans?

Career


I start a new job in the New Year! Still working in the same place, but moving into a Project Lead, very excited! It's going to be really challenging, but I am ready for a new challenge! :D


Wish List


Just as I hit "submit" for this journal, GrimFace242 tagged me so here are my ten "wishes"

STEP ONE


Snowflake Make a post to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
Snowflake If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
Snowflake Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your DA or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO


Snowflake Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:
Snowflake If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.
Snowflake You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.
Snowflake There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My Wishlist


1. Prizes for the Critmas contest!
2. People to donate £5 (or 5 of your equivalent currency) to a charity of their choice (and tell me who you pick!)
3. Warmer feet! (Socks)
4. A kick up the backside to write something.
5. Everyone to make santa handprint art and show me!
6. Something arty for my child. (like peppa pig fanart)
7. Gin.
8. Baileys
9. Red Wine
10. Fizz.


Chocolate pudding


I have one. Bye!

Rebecca Showler
Artist | Literature
United Kingdom
I am a 29 year-old mother of one who has been writing since around 9 years old. I have a keen interest in scriptwriting, and write plays for commission for local schools and theatre groups. I have a BA in creative writing and theatre studies and currently studying for a Postgraduate certificate in Business Management. (day job!)

I love dA because you can see what others on here have to offer. I appreciate any artwork simply because I could never do half of the amazing work I find on here.

As a writer, my main focus is on Scriptwriting and Writing for Performance, most of what I produce doesn’t appear on dA as it is used professionally. I also enjoy writing prose, and poetry and have participated in several “wrimo”s over the past few years.

If you ever want to chat, come find me in #CRLiterature, or any of the chats on the dAmn network. I am also active in the literature forum and don't be afraid send me a note! I am always willing to help answer any questions you may have or say hello.
