Published!I have taken the leap and started submitting my work to various literary magazines and journals, both electronic and traditional. I encourage every writer to do the same. There is a lot of rejection, but that is part of the artistic world. Below are a few of mine that were accepted:
Mark of Cain
Death of Marat
(My name is on the right)
If you have had a piece accepted outside of deviantArt, please send me the link. I would like to feature you. BTW, all of the above accept previously published works.

When I started the Wordsmiths group here at DA, I had three goals - produce a new sitehttp://word-smyths.com/
Horror, Fantasy and Spec FicMost of you are familiar with me as a poet. I also write fiction and have had a story accepted in the spec fic anthology, Nocturnal Embers. If you enjoy horror, science fiction and fantasy, check it out!. You can read a sample (and order it to read more) at Amazon. Each story is an event or adventure in and of itself.
Rupert Shaw. The name may strike you as remarkable, or not. It might conjure expectations of the person who answers to it, in which case you'll no doubt be surprised.
Or, perhaps you've heard of him.
If you have, you are most likely a vampire. Humans who know the name have limited lifespans or are in his employ (in which case you have not heard of Rupert Shaw, the vampire who rules over San Francisco – not if you want to keep your potential lifespan intact).
But if you've heard of Nocturnal Embers, you certainly know him. It's even possible that you've seen him on the occasions you visited the establishment. Of course, you'd also know that discussing what goes on at Noctu

The Literature Community ExperimentThis is a typical example of a Beccalicious shower pondering! The idea of this is to try and bring together as many people as possible all in one journal, but not for the sake of making a big number, but to encourage interaction and share useful tidbits. We often say the "literature community" has drifted apart over the past few years and this is just one attempt to try get people to come back together. It's a little hippy, perhaps a far-fetched idea, which is why I am calling it an "experiment". This could be successful and could be a complete fail- only you guys and your efforts can decide its fate!
Wow! The response for this has been HUGE!!! Thank you so much all of you who have participated! Don't forget to add CRLiterature to your watch as well as replying to all these wonderful comments!

Inspiring Deviants: LiteratureEveryday, I have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful deviants who continue to inspire me. In the eight years I have shared my writing here, I have had the privilege to meet others who value my passion for Literature and beyond – and have gained so much. From many here I have learned the power of stirring inspiration, delving into our creative passions, and connections in love and friendship. I wanted to spotlight just a few artistic souls who have made a distinctive impact in my life – and to express my deepest gratitude towards them all for making a difference within our Literature community.

All good things must come to an end...I want to thank each and everyone of you for your friendship, support and inspiration. I have been very fortunate. DeviantArt has been a wonderful home to me - without this place and the support from all of you, I would not have had the faith in myself to start getting my work published outside of this place. I have enjoyed reading your works, your comments and your notes, Thank-you from the bottom of my heart and hopefully we shall meet again somewhere in the literary world. Keep writing; keep producing art. You are an amazing family of people.
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
Keep in Touch!
Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
