Welcome to Flying-Fingers!

Welcome to Flying-Fingers! We're so glad to have you here. On this handy widget you'll see quite a few things about membership, rules and guidelines. It is recommended that you read what's written here before joining. Thank you!

***

A few ground rules about membership-

Writers of all kinds are accepted! We love you all and wish to foster a community of writers who support and help each other.

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.

Some rules about submitting-

:bulletblue: Please submit to the correct FOLDER! We've got a lot of pieces in our gallery, and sifting through them in order to make sure everything is where it needs to be is often an arduous task. Please help us out and make sure you click on the correct gallery folder before submitting.

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

Do not hesitate to note us 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:

:iconcopper9lives: :iconimperfect-parachute: :iconthebloodyepicpumpkin:

: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! We hope you will enjoy your time here at Flying-Fingers! :blowkiss:

Your founder,

2nd entry for liv's contest THEME OF THE WEEK


Last week's theme was FEAST — while there were no entries, I did find some juicy bites in our gallery:

Belong to MeIf you put me to your lips
with your morning coffee
I’ll unfold like a lotus flower
to kiss the insides of your teeth
I will bloom underneath your tongue
and when you swallow me down
I’ll conquer your sweet honey blood
and taste the beats of your heart.
My love for candy!Oh! so very sweet!
Unlike sour treats
They make me feel so pleased!
No pucker, nor swollen cheeks!
If you asked for a favorite
I couldn't decide!
From gummy bears
and gummy sharks
To chocolate chips
And chocolate bars
And holiday candy is also neat
For even in Halloween,
Candy can be so spooky
To be changed in two months,
To a cheerful Christmas cookie!
But, not only do they bring you to a smile
Some will clean you breath!
For the stressful interview
To your all so romantic first date!
Candy is magical
From the sensation it brings
To the art it inspires
It's just so hard to pick where to start!
But, I guess I'll start
With this cherry lollipop!
LeftoversOnce you were the meat upon my table
In a time of plenty
The wine sparkled in my glass
Refilled to a thousand toasts
A feast to last a lifetime, I thought.
Now the bitter lees confront me
In my discontented famine
The stale crumbs constant reminders
Swept in the corners of my life and dreams
The remnants of my former joy
That haunt the spaces in between
To trip me in the darkness
Of my daily blind routine.
MidsummerThe oaken wood is leafed in green
Beneath the swelling midyear sun
Come dance with spirits half-unseen
Beneath the trees when day is done
The summer days are waxing long
The barley golden in the fields
The meadowlark descants his song
And Earth as to a lover yields
Come bird, come bee, come fine young beast
And fill the wood with life anew
Come Lord and Lady to the feast
We raise the honeyed cup to you!
Bountiful the summer land
And Earth’s fecundity we bless
The Lady has an open hand
Magnanimous in her largess
The fruit is heavy on the vine
And laden branches ripening
Come break the bread and spill the wine
For summer is upon the wing!


This week's theme will be:

New CHANCE New

Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together."
— James Cash Penney

"Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing."
— Theodore Roosevelt

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

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?

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! :-)
