Hello, fellow authors! Hi!

copper9lives here with the weekly update! First, I'd like to remind you that Halloween is a week away...


:pumpkin: revamp Write something spooky, or Halloween-related
:pumpkin: revamp Submit your entries to the "2014 Contest Submissions" folder in our Gallery
:pumpkin: revamp The winner (as decided by a quorum of administrators) will receive a custom literature author tagfrom me, copper9lives!


Last week's theme was "AROMA" — here is our entry:

Autumn IsWet asphalt, and rain-soaked leaf-mulch tea
Summer’s wastrel profligacy
Washed down gutters and urban-henged streams
To a sucking sea that mutters and dreams.
Autumn is
Cold air flavored with woodsmoke
Ghosts the twilit mist invokes
Silent and numb, but loathe to go in
To steaming kitchens and family din.
Autumn is
Melancholy and solitude
And hidden places in which to brood
Rot, decay and introspection
Delirium, death and dark reflection.

This week's theme will be:


“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” 
― Albert Einstein

With Halloween right around the corner, are you starting to see restless spirits out of the corner of your eye? Is there anyone you admire for his or her spirit? Have things been spirited away from your home? Will you be sticking your Halloween costume on with spirit gum? Or does the word conjure up inviting images of the liquor cabinet?

Be sure to place your interpretations in our Theme of the Week folder, in our Gallery!

Membership and Rules and News! (Please Read Before Joining!)

Welcome to Flying-Fingers!

A few ground rules about membership-

If you are vying to join the group, you must be active deviants, good listeners, and dedicated writers. It doesn't matter what you write, but you have to be a writer.

Sorry, visual artists, but this isn't an artist's group. You may be a visual artist/writer (I am one myself) but please don't submit artwork in here! This group is for literature only.

We are, of course, open to all writers, but we expect all deviants to be fair to one another, appreciative about literature, and rule followers.

Some rules about submitting-

:bulletblue:Please submit to the correct FOLDER! It will save a lot of time and worry, and only takes a matter of seconds. Please, please, please!

:bulletorange:We want a standard that all deviations live up to. They need to have mostly correct grammar and spelling (I know not everything can be perfect) and it should not look like you just slapped the words on a page. Please, stress on grammar, punctuation, spelling, and separating paragraphs. :-)

:bulletblue: No Mature Content! Please, if you want to submit mature content, submit it to another group.

These are the rules, and we will expect all members to follow them! Do not hesitate to note with any questions, concerns or suggestions!

Now for NEWS!

:bulletblack: know that it says 'Submit Art' on the Welcome Home panel, but if you go to the gallery, in the top-right corner, there will be a button called 'Submit to the Gallery' Which will lead to you to submit entirely new art, but if you click on that small button, there will be another option that says 'Contribute Existing Deviations', which you can use to contribute to the gallery.

:bulletpurple: If you have any comments or questions and wish to contact us for group purposes, you're always free to message the group, message me or contact one of our fabulous admins:

:iconv-gal015: :iconjubchili: :iconimperfect-parachute: :iconthebloodyepicpumpkin: :icondiamond-arrow:

:bulletblack: If you have something you would like to promote (eg. Literary Journals/Magazines, Word Wars and contests, critiquing services, word sprints, anything that our members might be interested in taking part of) you're welcome to send the group a note explaining it and we'll promote it for you!

Thanks for reading! Again, if you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to contact us!

Hello everyone!

I am currently offering a speed critiquing service for those who want to get professional standard feedback on their prose writing/or poems at a cheap price. I've just finished my latest 45,000 editing/proofreading job and I'm looking for new works!

You could have your short story, the first chapter of your novel or one-act script read by the end of the day with in depth feedback on how to improve!

If you're interested in finding out more, follow the link to my job service forum post.

I look forward to hearing from you! =D

Hello. I haven't joined this group as of right now but I would like to ask a question.
I have the a chapter of a book I've written and there is some strong language in it. I know it is against your rules but the language is there to highlight the use of such language and this post doesn't use it in an offensive way but more like banter between the two characters using the language.
Would that be appopriate or not for the group?
GothKoala439 Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Hey there! I'm so sorry for the late reply, but language, as far as I'm concerned, shouldn't be a problem, as long as it's not used wrongly. It'll be perfectly fine for you to submit it if you wish to.

Again, we're so sorry for the late reply, and have a nice day! :-)
Deus-Lux Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay, thank you. :)

Hey, my name is Ed. I've been writing my novel, The Fallen Star. I've recently finished posting the entire book! I would love if a few people could read through it and tell me what they think; I would love to get it published one day =D

Siale was no longer safe for the Watchers; they were forced to flee from the city. Little did Rantil know that his life was going to change forever. He was about to be caught in an age-old battle between the Chalders of Ciameth and the Demons of Dremnor. He was Truaine's only hope.

Join him on his journey across Truaine; through the memories he'd rather forget, over vast mountain ranges and eventually beneath the Phayorian Mountains in ancient tunnels - created when the world was so much more than it has become.

The Fallen Star would change everything.
