Gallery Folders

From the Heart
From the Mind
From the Spirit







Group Rules

Welcome to Writing-My-Soul!

:bulletpink:The folders are specific, but pretty easy to navigate around. Please make sure you're submitting to the proper folder. Click any folder for specific information about them. All submissions will be reviewed before being accepted.

:bulletpurple:Folders are as followed;
From the Heart - Love and Romantic literature. Some emotional may go in here, but only if I feel it fits.
From the Mind - Philosophical and Sociopolitical literature
From the Spirit - Spiritual, Human Nature and some Emotional literature.
Please note, some exceptions will be made with each folder, depending on if I feel a piece fits there or not.

:bulletpink:Member applications are not automatically approved. They are carefully looked through and approved or declined by RunningBear5858 If you're a member of hundreds of groups, don't watch the groups and only join them for popularity, or you just don't look nice, you don't have that great of a chance getting in.

:bulletpurple:Submissions are not automatically approved either. Quality, artist's comments and number of groups are looked over before a choice is made.

:bulletpink:You may submit twice a week to the appropriate folder.

:bulletpurple:Do not submit your work to the group faves.

:bulletpink:Do not, I repeat, DO NOT Submit any work to the "Featured folder." That folder will be specifically for the best pieces in the group and the best piece that come out of prompts

:bulletpurple: We are not about popularity, we're about writing to make changes to you and to other people somehow.

:bulletpink:We DO NOT accept submissions that are chapters of a continuing story and no fan fiction. A continuing story would take up too much of the gallery, and fan fiction are characters that are not your own. No exceptions.

:bulletpurple:If you wish for critique on your piece, add a dA critique request on the piece, or ask for critique in your artist's comment.

:bulletpink:Any contest rules will be covered in a blog regarding it. Look there for any new information.

:bulletpurple:Please respect the admins and the members. If you have any serious problems with the group, an admin, or a member, please note RunningBear5858.
(Serious means SERIOUS. I don't want to deal with stupid, petty dArama.)

Any questions, please note RunningBear5858

Hello. I am interested in becoming a part of this group and I was wondering if it is free to join or if I need to fill out an application of some kind.
RunningBear5858 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Click the "join group" button at the top of the page. The administrative team will look into your stuff, most likely you'll be accepted.

Hello. Do you accept writers who use languages other than English? I thank you in advance for any answer I may receive :)
RunningBear5858 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I'm afraid none of the administrators know any other language, so we wouldn't be able to accept or decline the pieces. :( I'm really sorry. :hug:

Okay, no problem :)

I'm debating if I should join or not.... anything I should really know about this group before I make my final decision? I'm a pretty dark writer that usually writes from my mind and heart, so I was thinking this was a good group for me, but I'm not sure.
(if you want an example of my work I have a recent prose here: [link] and a poem here: [link] )

Take a look at the rules very thoroughly if you're interested. If you have pieces that fit at all into the subjects, then obviously you're fine.
Others join even if they have pieces that are not submitted into those certain categories. There are pieces that have certain "Heart" "Spirit" or "Mind" qualities in them, and as long as I can see them, then I'll accept. Other times, I will deny because the piece is definitely general poetry or straight fiction.
Thanks for your interest, the choice to join is yours, not mine. :)
