The DeviantArt Writers Questionnaire 2015

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 1, 2015, 4:47 PM
So I found this and it looked really cool


Inspired by CRLiterature's latest journal What do you want to see from CRLit I decided out of sheer madness to draw up a questionnaire focusing on: what makes you a writer? Why do you write and where did you first have your a-ha! moment when a story or poem exploded into existence? Does it matter if you are a writer? Nope, this questionnaire is even for those who don't write, who loathe poetry, where the sight of a book causes the blood to drain from you. Here's your opportunity to share with others why. 

Love DeviantArt QUESTION-TIME!DeviantArt Love 

1. How long have you been a member of DeviantArt, and for how long have you been writing? If you don't write what realm of art do you work in?

I have been on DA for many years. This account has been active for at least 7 years and I had another one before this one.

I think it was in 11th grade when I started writing for fun. I think that was like 1998 - 99.


2. Why did you become a writer? Is your reason to write the same now as it was then? 

I started writing poems for fun, for no good reason. Then I joined the school paper in high school as an elective. I really liked it and continued with some journalism classes in college. I ended up majoring in Professional Writing in college.

Now I want to be a novelist, and I am working on two. I still write poetry and short stories (mostly fan fic) for fun.  Something else that has become a major part of why I write is the fact that I work at a performing arts theatre. I'm a playwright with multiple credits under my belt for one minute and ten minute plays.



3. Do you compose haiku? Or are you a dabbler in six word stories? Share what type of literature is your go to when you put pen to paper. And for those who don't write (as well as those who do) - Do you read any literature here on DeviantArt? If no. Why?

I write everything -- whatever hits me in the moment. I never really thought about only sticking to one thing. I mentioned a lot of my endeavors above: novels, plays, songs, poems, fan fic, original short stories. And I jump genres as well: horror, sci fi, romance, adventure, as well as personal experiences (most of the poems).


And I do read lit here on DA. I read a lot of fan fiction and there are many poets and writers I follow. Shameless promotion: I am the founder and admin of a poetry only group. Please come browse or join :iconthepoetryofda:



4. What in your opinion makes a good writer?

Someone with heart, who writes uncensored from their soul - they make great poets.

As for short story writers and novelists - being creative enough to make up a world wholly unto their characters. Also, being about to weave plotlines and the ability to come up with brand new ideas and not just rehash the same old ones in the same way.


5. Writers, share a thumbnail of a literature piece you wrote, you're proud of, and non-writers, share a piece of literature you really enjoyed. Briefly explain why.

This is a play I wrote several years back. That theatre I work at, we have a 10 minute play festival every year and this play was performed. I am also a director, (one of usually 8 for the festival, so I had full creative control over my work.

Also, I really like the concept. It focuses on what could have happened if Eve and Lilith (Adam's fist wife in the apocryphal texts) met face to face. But it is set in the modern day and deals with feminism vs misandry.

6. Writers, share a thumbnail of a literature piece you wrote which you don't like, and non-writers, share a piece of literature you found to be terrible. Briefly explain why.

This one was written in 2008 and compared to writing style now it's bad. The plot is weak, probably filled with holes, and the characters aren't truly developed.

AnnissaPittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Midnight. Present Day
She walks alone, a seemingly helpless young woman who is barely 5"1'. Her eyes shine like polished sapphires, and hold secrets unknown. Her long brown hair flows down her back in waves. She is beautiful. But she is not afraid. The night is her home, her playground. Her name is Annissa and she is one of the last remaining vampires.
As she walks she is aware of the man following her. He is in his early thirties and is slightly overweight. He holds a knife in one hand and is planning to rob, rape, and kill his innocent, young victim. But Annie is ready for him.
She pivots on the heel of her boot and boldly faces her pursuer. Her acting is good, and she looks scared. He smiles as he looks her up and down. He raises the knife and it glitters in the light of the full moon.
"Hi there, sweetheart," he drawls, obviously drunk. "Why don't you come with me?"
"Make me," she replies. The fear leaves her face as she puts her hands on her hips in a defi


7. As a writer, what are your literary goals? Non-writers, do you have any plans to write any literature?

As of now, my goals are to finish a novel and to write plays good enough to be performed.


8. Are you a member of any of DeviantArt's literature groups? Which are the ones you use most? Are they effective in helping your writing? Do they offer features, or contests, or prompts? Would you recommend any of these groups?


I am a member of lots of groups, including the one I run, you should check it out. The ones I use the most are the fan fiction groups, they also give the most feedback. A lot of the groups here are good for exposure, but not always for critiques. The best way to get featured, I've found, in lit groups is to enter contests. If you place there are multiple feature across DA and in multiple groups.

9. Using six words, what advice would you give to new writers?

Just write. Don't think. Don't edit.

(edit later after you have it all down)


10. Who or what influences you as a writer? And for non-writers, does literature influence you as an artist?

The fandoms I write about, personal experience, what I observe, music, books I've read

11. Have any published poets, authors, or playwrights, living or dead, inspired you as a writer or as an artist?

Stephen King, Gaston Leroux, Susan Glaspell, Michelle Rodriguez

12. List five things about literature you love.
Getting lost in the stories
Creating a whole new world
Learning about a person through what they write
Being about to put your own heart and soul on a page
New book smell


13. List five things about literature you hate.
Um... Twilight?
People who can't write well being published
When someone says "Anyone can do it"
When a good book is destroyed by a bad movie
Did I say Twilight?


14. Final question. Are you happy with the state of the literature community? If not, why?

Yes, I'm happy

I'm a self proclaimed nerd who likes to sing, play chess and a multitude of video games as well as Magic the Gathering. Obviously I take pictures as well. I read. A lot. Most of the time multiple books at once. And I'm addicted to reality TV. And when I'm not doing any of that I'm a theatre enthusiast. That passion goes further, however, than just knowing way too much about way too many plays, musicals, actors and actresses. I volunteer at a theatre where I work in the box office, direct, produce, write plays, and find time to be a production assistant and "Bio Wrangler". Oh yeah, I'm also a counselor for drama camp.

Oh yeah, I also find time to eat, sleep, and breathe.
