happiness isIt's the dew drops on the morning tea leaves andhappiness is by ClamShellHeart
The sweet taste of lavender before a book,
The living beings I foster in my arms and
Flying birds I wish never to catch
But for the tickling of my toes
When I hold fast to a swing set chain.
It's unrolling ribbons and a child's first parade
And a beautiful note on the tip of my tongue
The power of the humblest daisy
I will never pluck from the ground.
Traveling inches and growing miles,
The sweet sound of a fitting key,
Five fingers on each hand
But four is plenty to receive
what has been given to you.

a final overwriting
of the double helix that defined me,
but I wasn't enough of a geneticist
(nor of a writer) for the
art of four-letter poems.
So we hacked to
pieces my nucleotide
bonds, we attached
and removed strings of
memories from my life's album
as if undecided on what to wear -
but, my love,
we never had any sense of
My chromosomes, carved as a testament
to all of our surgery sessions,
became a festival of restriction
enzymes' reactions, of when
we tore my consciousness'
nucleobases away from their seats
to fit the new occupants
of my old self.
And I see you now, my love,
through truth-telling eyes.
I never was enough of a geneticist
for the art of four-letter poems
and you unmade and
rebuilt me just to
show that you were.
The beauty and wonder of my
nitrogenous base sequences, you
picked your best restriction
enzymes to dismember
"We're doing this for you."
You always knew plasmids

Discourse with the DevilI offered Satan a piggy-back ride today. So up he hopped, and away we went for a walk, and I asked him all the questions I could think of. For how cruel is it to burden the Heavens with all my queries? There must be someone else to talk to.

Building Your VocabularySo you want to build your vocabulary? The answers are really simple, I swear, and you can do it! However, before we go in any detail I want to make something clear...IrrevocableFate
Just because you know those big, fancy words DOESN'T mean you have to or should use them!
Smaller words can be as effective and, sometimes, more effective.
Vocabulary is important, there isn't any doubt about it. Using, or finding, the right word can be key when you're writing. Though we don't always quite know the right word and maybe you never knew it or you just can't quite remember what it was. Either way, you are now determined to fill up that vocabulary!
Large words are fantastic, if used properly. Don't try to impress your reader by throwing out a bunch of obscure, long words. If you must use them do so sparingly. It's just as important to remember that your readers are intelligent and chances are they may know what the word means or they'll use a di
#CRLiterature Chatroom GuidelinesBasic Infotiganusi
The CRLiterature Chatroom is the unofficial "official" safe hangout for writers when they have questions, want to chat shop, or just want to chat with other writers about general topics. The room is moderated by current and former literature Community Volunteers as well as the contributors at the CRLiterature group. We like to keep things light-hearted, so while we encourage free speech and open discussion about even controversial topics we do have a few rules that you are expected to follow if you want to continue chatting.
Current lit CVs are sorted into the Hacks privclass in the chat, and other admins of CRLiterature are sorted into the Typewriters privclass. Poke us, we don't bite - even though we enter and leave the room unannounced like word-ninjas!
All incoming new users to the room are categ

The Cure for Art Block
If you’re stalled out on your current project or just out of ideas, look no further than Art Block
DA is not deleting accounts.Administrative steps are being taken to hopefully put a stop to submissions containing the rumor.y2jenn
DA is not deleting accounts on May 21st. Nor is DA ever going to delete accounts on any future May 21sts. This is an old stupid rumor and should not be taken seriously.
In the very unlikely event that DA's stance on removing unused accounts ever changes, an official announcement will be made at hq. You are not going to be removed because you don't use your account a lot. You are not going to be removed because you didn't copy and paste the poorly written 'warning' to your journal. You are not going to be banned if you posted the 'warning' because you were genuinely concerned. You are only in risk of administrative action if it's found you are posting it just to cause a disturbance in the community.
Stop posting the 'warning' in your journal.
Do not post it "just in case".
You can help by telling the deviants you see posting the journal that it's false. Feel free to
Your friendly - but a bit of a troll, admittedly - next-door neighbour. I love cookies, gaming, Magic:the Gathering and anime; I love silence, music and nature; I love long walks, being lazy, I love silly things like earrings, jeans and nail polish (and I have tons of them all, beware). I love experimenting with my hair because let's admit it, it always grows back eventually.|
I love smiles, cold weather, and I love when my toes are warm next to the fire. I love reading, writing, and improving my English thanks to both of those; I love #thewrittenrevolution and all that it lets me to for the community, I love the happiness it gives me.
I love the friends I have made, and those that I will make tomorrow. I love you.
