DD Suggestion Guidelines

Literature Community Volunteers

Why Suggest?


Part of being a Community Volunteer is featuring wonderful deviations as Daily Deviations, but the keyword is community. I need you guys, the community, to tell me what you like to read. Share your favorite stories and scribbles with the rest of the community by suggesting it for a feature. If you adored it, share it with us! :la:


Instructions


Send your suggestion link/thumbnail to me in a note with the subject "DD Suggestion" please! I encourage you to send multiple suggestions, but be sure to only send one per note. That way I won't get confused and can organize them.

It would be marvelous if you could tell me why you think the deviation should be featured. I want to feel your enthusiasm to I can get excited about the piece too!

Please note, I will thank you for the suggestion, but won't tell you if it will be featured beforehand. It's more fun when it's a surprise!


What I'm looking for in a suggestion:


:bulletblue: I will read any type of literature gallery suggestion you send me, and do my best to give it a fair consideration.

:bulletblue: I'm stronger in prose and screenplays, but I'm handicapped in poetry. (I'll still look and poke other volunteers for opinions on poetry.) If you prefer to send your poetry suggestions to another Lit Community Volunteer I won't be offended. :bucktooth:

:bulletblue: Every reader has their favorites, so here's some of mine:
Interesting characters and believable dialog really do it for me. The characters don't all have to be quirky or overdone, but I like depth. It's great when the reader feels a connection with the character and enjoys them, even if they're the 'bad guy' in a story. Also, if it's a little strange and pushes the taboo envelope, I'm usually interested in reading it.

I write romance, so of course I love reading that. Please send some my way!

:bulletblue: Check the quality of the deviation. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation should be passable.

:bulletblue: You can suggest your own work!


A Few Rules


:bulletred: A deviant can only receive a DD feature once every 6 months. If the deviant had one within the last 6 months I can't feature it. Not sure how to figure that out? Check out this FAQ:
FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

:bulletred: I can only feature deviations in the Literature gallery!

:bulletred: Only send a suggestion to ONE Community Volunteer. If you don't want to send it to me you can send it to BeccaJS instead.



Not sure what I'm talking about? These may help:

FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?




I can't wait to see the fantastic literature you guys are reading! :eager:

P.S. I'm shameless and used BeccaJS and wreckling's guidelines as a reference for creating this post.

Just how hard is it exactly for pieces from novels to get featured? Intro chapters are great yes but many scene's are often very much like short's if you analyse them.

:iconthorns:
thorns Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012   Writer
There isn't a definite number or statistic. Personally I'm hesitant to submit later chapters of a piece because they don't often stand alone. So I look at the first couple chapters, or spin offs, shorts based on the world and characters, etc. If you send a suggestion for a later chapter, I will read it, but it'd need to be stand on its own for all readers.

That is the problem of course, although at the same time it's that same development which is good, specifically for me though I'm too far into a franchise for it to entice at chapter 39 for book 2 already

I should suggest more. It strikes me that although I have suggested a lot of DLDs, and made suggestions to Becca and the Monkey, I have never sent you one. This must change! :eager:

Can the part one of a story with a few chapters be accepted? I've never seen any deviations that aren't one-offs that win a DD, (except on very rare occasions).

Add me to the list; I received a DD recently for a first chapter, so suggest away. :D
Reply
:iconthorns:
thorns Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012   Writer
Yes! :D Some have been featured. I can think of =Emrose88, *TheStorageGnome, and even one of my pieces that had the first chapter featured as a DD off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more, and I'm definitely interested in chapter works so do send them my way if they're good.

I'm sending you Suggestions all the time :dummy: Sometimes the poem is just so beautiful that I don't know what to say about it:confused: So I just send the poem with no description. But I will do my best to tell you why I think it deserves to be featured:la: Thank you for this.
