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).


( Suggested by SCFrankles and chromeantennae and Featured by neurotype. )

Man Sold Separately by GuinevereToGwen


( Featured by Beccalicious. )

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

The Great Race
suggested by LiliWrites and featured by VertigoArt
"A fun, exciting ride. Tightly written, interesting character. I was caught up in Charlie's race from the first stride to the last."


The Story of the Bench
suggested by chromeantennae and featured by TwilightPoetess
"This piece is really unique and the dialogue is great. I really, really enjoyed this read."


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."


Rescue Team
featured by doodlerTM
"A piece that conveys the frustration of having a co-dependent friend."


On a Dark and Stormy Night
suggested by WritersInk and featured by SilverInkblot
"A very cleverly written piece using the first lines in many famous novels."


Saving Ladybugs
featured by doodlerTM
"A touching story about ladybugs and loss told through the point-of-view of a child."


dA Projects

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.

Work, Love, and Musicals (Always)

Mon Jul 14, 2014, 7:59 AM
Work has been really crazy lately at my new (and first!) job; the one other new girl just randomly decided to not show up to her shifts anymore, which means I've been getting called in nearly every day. I just finished three eight-hour days in a row, and although I know that things could be much, much worse, I'm totally EXHAUSTED. And because of weird moving around during these three days, I haven't been able to edit my novel in THREE WHOLE DAYS. That's a lot of days. Which means that I have a lot of work to do today if I want to catch up, which actually makes me really happy because my fingers have been itching to get back on the keyboard.

The good thing about all these hours at work, though, is that WORK = MONEY. Which means that I have a growing bank account that allows me to buy things, such as Book of Mormon tickets for next Sunday. Which makes me extremely happy. I've been wanting to see that musical since it came out. I've been hearing amazing things about it. Besides, MUSICALS! :heart:

So for the past year and a half, I've been wrapped up in my own little love triangle (or love angle, as Gingersanps would say). Now that the school year is over, though, I haven't been seeing the person in question every day, which has made things considerable better. And although he sends me facebook messages and I SO want to answer them and I keep finding funny things that I want to show him, I'm not talking to him. Just, no. Everyone says he's been leading me on, and I don't want to do that anymore. As long as I keep talking to him, there will always be that part of me who thinks we might, somehow, someday, end up together. And that part of me is lying to myself, which I am done with. I am so, so done, it isn't even funny.

So here's to new beginnings - new job, new school, new stories, and Book of Mormon, because, well, duh.

Also, have a funny thing:

GuinevereToGwen's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Literature

Aspiring novelist, composer-lyricist, sunriser, dreamer, and the biggest poetastrophe you'll ever meet.

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.
