I mentioned in my last journal that DeviantLITERATURE was planning something big. Well, it's here! (And has been for five days now)

DeviantLITERATURE has launched its latest project, the Character Conception Challenge! Full details are over here DevLIT's Character Conception Challenge!July was a month of a capella nights,
Red heliotrope scores and blanched
Methadone eyes.
A singing of nerves hewn to a cry:
Fine-tuned and skinned
To carpal ascension,
The quivers of a quaver
Due to crescendo.
I hovered, wing-like, on the husk
Of schizocarp dreams,
But sprang forth undone
By chorus and synchrony.

DeviantLITERATURE's Character Conception Challenge!
We hope you've all been doing your best over at Camp NaNo this past month, and the Admin Team are overjoyed to announce to you an upcoming project!
With NaNo fever all over the Literature scene here on dA, the dL Admins got together and asked each other, "What is the most difficult thing about NaNoWriMo and Camp?" Then, MoonlightWillow6 came up with the answer - character building. So, we thought, what better than to have a month-long character-oriented challenge between the two months of Camp NaNo?  
So, we are proud to present, the DeviantLITERATURE Characte
We've already launched prompt number one: CCC: Prompt IMy weeping sorrows
Like shards of a lonely heart
Remain embedded...

DeviantLITERATURE's Character Conception Challenge!
July 1st -- Prompt I
Hello and welcome all to July 1st - the first day of dL's CCC! Your challenge today is a prompt. I hope you're all prepared, pens and pencils at the ready, or a nice MS Word open and waiting? Sit tight and let the character grow...
Your challenge is to write a piece of prose between 500 and 2,000 words from the perspective of a younger version of your character, meeting their older self for the first time.
If you have any questions about this prompt, just message us!
The 'deadline' is the eighth, however as this is just a challenge and not a competition, we will not reject pieces written for this prompt beyond then!
So, may DeviantLITERATURE's Character Conception Challenge formally begin! Get scribbling! :typerhappy:
Things to look forward to!
Coming up...

and our first workshop (writing tips) penned by yours truly: CCC: Workshop IScreaming.
Grieving.
Loving.
Breaking.
Do you know how hard I try?
Continually I try to make it work,
I try so hard.
I write for you,
read you my silly love songs,
sing them to you when you're having doubts.
This poetry I write for you,
I pour myself inside it.
But that is never enough.
Bleeding.
Crying.
Dying.
I tried.
I'm sorry.
It was too much work.

Flaws and Development by MoonlightWillow6

Part One: Flaws
What drives a story?
The plot? The setting? The characters?
The correct answer, in a good story, is all of the above. A story needs a plot, setting and characters. A good story, needs more than that. It needs a riveting, curveball throwing plot. It needs a setting bursting with life. And in my opinion, most importantly, it needs interesting characters.
Characters are a double edged sword. Done right, they can change a mediocre stor

"Hm, The Big Damn Kiss, First Kiss, Concert Kiss, and True Love's Kiss all in one. Impressive."
He chuckled. "What, not a Hollywood Kiss?"
With a smirk, she replied, "Not quite yet, but you're free to try again if you'd like."
