Daily Deviations and Daily Lit Deviations


Daily Deviations



The Great Race by GuinevereToGwen is "a modern-day quest set in a girls' school: the 'dragon' is armed with a broom and the 'princess' isn't interested in the hero" (suggester's words).

Golden Ink and Going Back by GuinevereToGwen "is a wonderful tale of childhood, growing up, and then wishing you could be a child again. Using fairy tales that are well-known, a wonderful story is spun that will take you back to your childhood days of innocence," says the suggester.

Daily Lit Deviations
Daily Lit Recognition



Entropy
suggested by chasingcloudbursts and featured by Naktarra
"This short story is a wonderful representation of the uncertainty of love, using the concept of entropy to tie it all together. The writing is intriguing and the ending is immensely satisfying. You will find yourself smiling uncontrollably at the end of this adorable tale."

2014-09-09
Prose



The Great Race

2014-05-22

Derailed
suggested by saltwaterlungs and featured by DrippingWords
"At first, the piece might seem cliché, but it quickly disorients the reader well enough to shake away any thought of it being anything but unique."

Prose



Rescue Team

"A piece that conveys the frustration of having a co-dependent friend."

2013-09-25

Project DD-a-Day


Project DD a Day aims to encourage deviants to suggest Daily Deviations. The challenge was to suggest seven DDs in two weeks. The project, which occurred from September 1st to 14th, is now over; however, I plan on organizing a second edition sometime in the future.

GuinevereToGwen's Profile Picture
GuinevereToGwen
Danielle
Artist | Student | Literature
Canada

Aspiring novelist, composer-lyricist, sunriser, entropist, bisexual, poetastrophe extraordinaire.


I'm currently a student in Canada who dreams of spending the rest of her life writing novels and short stories on a houseboat. Fond of classic literature and musical theatre, I love snowflakes, hot air balloons, and typewriters, although I've never used one and doubt I would enjoy it.

I write short stories, poetry, songs, plays, screenplays, musicals, articles, anything and everything that can be written, I'm writing. My current writing projects include my novel, Columbia Uncharted, a collaborative novel with NGBookworm97, Sunriser, and a one-act musical I'm currently in the process of putting on called The Strangers on the Bus.


Nice Things People Have Said About Me
"Danielle’s gallery is packed full of intriguing and clever pieces to peruse, on her multi-faceted profile. Whether in sharing her novels brimming over with moving tales or reading a touching story or poem from a unique angle, she’s written something for everyone to enjoy."
by LadyLincoln, one of dA's biggest sweethearts

"What I love most about her writing is her character development and her observation/analysis of other human beings...including her honest evaluations of herself and her feelings.
Danielle is one of the most imaginative storytellers I know and, time after time, her writing touches me in some way, whether because I relate to it personally or am simply fascinated by it."
by one of the kindest people I know, hopeburnsblue

"GuinevereToGwen is possibly my best internet buddy. She is just.. wow. She's always trying new things with her writing, and she's always participating in competitions and coming up with new, cool group ideas. She's super nice and her poetry is phenomenal, as is her prose and her stagewriting. She's just all around talented."
by the wonderful saltwaterlungs

"GuinevereToGwen is a sweetheart in every sense of the word. Her work just sweeps you off your feet with her incredible control of literary devices."
by the incredible momo-madness

"You are now a magical writer unicorn."
by my favourite person in the whole world, SilentSails


Favourite plays: Lots of musicals (Les Mis, Next to Normal, Wicked, Chicago, Rent) and anything Shakespeare (my favourites include Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, and As You Like It)!
Favourite poets: Allen Ginsberg • Lewis Caroll • Robert Frost
Favourite colour: All of them! Don't make me choose!
How I would like to die: In a swordfight, defending my life. Preferably on the back of a dragon.

About your polll. In literature capitalizing the first letter can be a title of name or simply for emphasis. A whole word in caps is shouting and should only be used if the shouting is not indicated some other way. Useing both an identifying phrase and caps is redundant and shows a lack of skill of forethought.
