Dun! Dun! DD Suggestion Guidelines

Wed Sep 19, 2012, 4:00 PM

Hey all,

I'm a Literature ^CV now! And that means you can bug me with your DD suggestions! Here are some things to keep in mind when suggesting literature to me.

:bulletpink: 1 suggestion per note.

:bulletpink: A little enthusiasm while suggesting goes a long way.

:bulletpink: DD's can only be awarded to members once every 6 month period, not 3 months.

:bulletpink: Self-suggestions are welcome, but please consider your work carefully.

:bulletpink: Pieces that are for contests that have not yet finalized cannot be DD’d.

Send me

:bulletwhite: Originality - Whether it be unique thoughts, concepts, imagery, or characters.

:bulletwhite: Poetry - This is what I prefer, practice, and know best, but I will read everything you send my way!

:bulletwhite: Quality - Where the writer shows a firm grasp over what they are doing technically and emotionally.

:bulletwhite: Writing with Merit - A piece of literature can stand on its own with the help of a sound message.

:bulletwhite: Lastly, every piece of writing should resonate on an emotional level with somebody. Send me something I will want to keep reading!

If you have any questions please ask away (And check out :iconbeccalicious:, :iconthorns:, or :iconneurotype:).

Your friendly neighborhood armadillo, ^NicSwaner

Ride of the :la:kyries! Dun Dun Dun Da-- Dun Dun Dun Da DD's!

1) I go on vacation and dA appoints two new lit CVS. I should go on vacation more. :paranoid:

2) Congratulations! :iconlawooplz: This is so, so cool! You'll make a phenomenal CV and I will soon be spamming you with suggestions. :nod:

3) How was I not already watching you? :facepalm:

4) Hooray for emotional resonance! That's my #1 consideration when I DLD something. So I'm glad I'm not the only one who rates it highly! Speaking of which...

5) Are you still going to be a DLD Poetry admin? :?

6) Armadillo. Awesome. What's ^neurotype? Does she just get to be cake? But like a living, animal cake? Like Thorny Coconut? :eager:

1) No! Don't go on vacation again! We luff you! :iconnewglomp:

2) =D Thanks, I think I will too, and you're already tied for first place for most suggestions! Will look at them soon! :iconlawooplz:

3) How was I not already watching YOU? Seriously, I thought I had all the DLD admins on my watch list. Now I have to doublecheck.

4) :love:

5) Sadly, no. I didn't want to divide my time and resources between two great pillars of the community, and chose to focus on my CV activities. But I am still very supportive of DLD, you guys are my roots in the community. =) I am still suggesting work to DLD admins (so far: *xlntwtch (who featured ~TheOtherSarshi's The Translator), =SilverInkblot, and =TwilightPoetess), I'll put you next on my list.

6)Armadillos! :dummy: ^neurotype is a courageous cake who protects us from the ever present threat of the pie overlords (=GrimFace242).

7) :iconlaexcitedplz:

Are you less likely to award a DD to a piece that has already been featured? As in, if it has already received a goodly amount of attention, would it go farther down/not make your list?
Nichrysalis Sep 20, 2012  Student Writer
Not necessarily.

Are you sure about this? :pointr: :iconarmadilloplz:
Nichrysalis Sep 19, 2012  Student Writer
That's just a bad angle of the poor fellow. Let me see if I can find a picture of him in the wild... :iconcoolplz: Yup, there we are.
MummyWriter Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
That picture is so artistic, it really exemplifies the gentle and loving nature of the common armadillo.
Nichrysalis Sep 20, 2012  Student Writer
I know right? :lmao:
MummyWriter Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
So how exactly did you come up with armadillo for your animal persona?
Nichrysalis Sep 20, 2012  Student Writer
I've always had a thing for armadillos. =)
