Literature - Exceptional Works

Every person has their own perspective over what a wonderful piece of literature is, there is no definition that one can follow. These works in my eyes are worth being featured as Daily Deviations or wonderful works from professional perspective. Some People have surprisingly made appearances more than once.

Donate

NotenSMSK has started a donation pool!
2,393 / 10,000
My purpose over his is to make my main group TheCritiquables into a Super Group and simply to be able to give points to people. I don't think I will be getting a premium again since while it is good - I think that I have other things to do so.

People who donate - regardless of the group or for me - will get critiques!

Busy - need to manage

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 14, 2014, 11:39 AM
Besides being here for two years I have suddenly felt that I am unable to manage things. I have writing projects - job - real life other stuff - and dA - and facebook and other online stuff. I need to apply abroad for further studies as well. So I need to manage things.

As far as dA is concerned this is my to do list:
:bulletred: Manage groups - give critiques - manage members and Admins
:bulletred: Manage my "to be critiques" Favorite folder - give some critiques there otherwise it loses purpose (which it has lost for last 2 years
:bulletred: Make a birthday feature that is VERY overdue and I might merge his months and next months
:bulletred: Give comments on deviations, get back in the comunity
:bulletred: Reply to people and all
:bulletred: Get active in projects I take seriously - like Project comment and projectporkchop
:bulletred: Send a bunch of important notes around and settle some things.

Things I HAVE done:
:bulletgreen: Been on dA to write this journal :aww:

WRONG! That is SO wrong. No worries. Basically that is only dA. And these are the must do things for me. Also I was given a premium by angelenroute and it would be a shame to just let it to waste - so I need to utilize my Premium properly as well.

Any advice to manage time in general or on dA is appreciated.

PS. my group :iconthecritiquables: is a place to get mutual critiques - you do get feedback and experience and depending on how active you are - you may get more. We have yet no incentive - other than getting critiques (unlike projects like project comment that have a very strong incentive for the commenters). So you are all welcome to join AND if anyone has any opinion regarding giving incentives or not (perhaps at the end of the year) do tell us.

Two complete years

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 25, 2014, 8:36 PM
It is finally a date that I missed last year - completing my two years on deviantART.

Just thinking back over that time... I have met some amazing people - some not so amazing people. I have made friends, lost friends, made some permanent sort of friends and lost some friends permanently (no deaths involved).

There has been drama and no drama as well. I have loved a lot of dA and being honest I have disliked a lot as well.

I have stated this many times before but I feel we are growing as a society where a few techniques rather than outright talent are bringing us higher. True - techniques, the know how to do stuff and execution is important to know. Also, by saying this I am not changing anything - it will stay as it is.  But you know... Inspirational, folk tale like, unique ideas and executions in literature are being undermined by political, controversial, personal tragic tales. A point to add over the personal tragedy - I respect their pain and sorrow but I don't like the 'fav/watch' of sympathy. If a work is good enough - but if it is only a heart breaking work... well then Yahoo articles should be the most favorite stuff around. Since they contain mostly death/rape/rescues.

It slowly seems that literature is losing its appeal as something to freshen the mind with ideas and thoughts from a different perspective. Now the popular perspective is.... ah well never mind.

There is a lot more I could say. But again - I don't want to make this a controversial forum for trolls to come and start commenting what I have in my trashcan - I had a pretty good experience of that as well.

I am not changing anything by saying that - nor will I ask everyone to change themselves for the sake of literature. I am just stating this. And I fear what literature is slowly developing into. Anyways - enough with the serious preachy talk.

For those who are still working on projects AND those people whose projects I have yet to see - sorry. I have been extremely busy - even to reply. I am working on my own projects (good or bad as they may be) but I will try to give dA time!

In the end... I thank everyone. From my friends, acquaintances to trolls and people I dislike. You add to my experience and learning so that I may think, act and write better.

And a parting gift of sorts!

Hello people who took time enough to visit my profile. I am SMSK (name acronym)
:sherlock:
I am a hobbyist artist as in sketcher, writer (poems, prose, songs) and sportsman. Never been much of the geek but have keen interest in stuff like Schrodinger's cat or black holes or STE (Random assortment that comes together to form me).

I might be considered a pessimist since I consider things in the generally accepted "negative" way but that is only to consider the worst case scenario's at hand. Other than that I am a fast talker who might sometimes say a little too much though it is not my intention.

Just to add a little more - I write based on any idea that pops into my mind. I do welcome critiques since they help me improve. I am strongly against bashing people and I hope people respect others.

Well that is all for today! I don't see the point in adding personal info that is not required here but if someone wants to "know me better" they are welcome to ask although I don't guarantee a perfect answer.

Now regarding my life on DA:

:bulletred: Do not ask for WATCH, fav, points. If you ask without us having any previous interaction I might probably not like the idea of doing so.

:bulletred: You can ask me for advice, be it emotional, related to DA, relating to getting more exposure or on making a group. I know I am not the perfect and most helpful guy but I do welcome discussions :happybounce: Oh and if you do want to get your art noticed check this article:
Get your art some attention on dA

:bulletred: I do have the slight inclination towards "fav for fav and comment for comment" although I will watch back when I feel the person is good enough.

I am founder of:
:iconthecritiquables:

And Admin in the following groups:
:iconpoeticalcondition:
:iconwrite-to-live:
:iconpoetry-watchers:

There are certain deviants who are happy to lend a hand to new commers on dA. They could get information regarding it from namenotrequired:iconnamenotrequired:
