Tags for Writers? How to submit? Writing Tips ?
Put tags on your work to make it more visible for other blogs and they can reblog. It’s at the bottom of a text or quote (it’s soft-shaded as #tags). This may sound elementary, but some of us don’t realize how to add tags when we first start.
What kind of tags?
#poets on tumblr
Tags for submission/reblog sites:
#creedrescue (new writers only)
Probably more, add to the comments if you know of more places
Places you can write for prompts (these change weekly but are a great way to get involved in the writing community and get your work noticed. Make sure you check out what their prompt is before using these tags)
Start interacting with other writers. Look for poets that write things you like. Like their work, follow them.
Read good poetry, good novels and short stories
Use verbs - they have power
Write what’s in you. No one else can do that
Honesty dressed in imagery is alluring
People are drawn to rhythm
Try writing from different points of view
Write about more than one subject
Don’t be afraid to let out what lurks inside you
Make yourself write regularly, even if you don’t share everything
Rewriting is important. Always ask yourself, is there a better word I could use? is that line necessary?
To enable post submissions on the web:
Click “Settings” under the Account menu at the top of the dashboard, then choose the blog you’d like to update on the right side of the page.
In the Submissions section, enable “Let people submit posts.”
Customize your Submission page title, guidelines, and a tag field.
Toggle which types of posts users can submit.
And in the app:
Tap the account icon (the little human).
Tap the blog name at the top of the screen to select the blog you’d like to update if it’s not already showing.
Tap the gear icon.
Turn the “Let people submit posts” option on. Note that at this time it’s not possible to edit the types of posts people can submit on the app.
Sending a submission
To submit something to a blog (assuming that the blog has submissions enabled):
In the app: Go to a blog, tap the person icon, and then Submit.
On the web: Hover over an avatar and click the person icon.
From the blog: Look for the submit link, or add /ask or /submit to the end of their URL.
Inktober is coming and I have no clue what to draw. I’m demotivated in art, research and math classes. You know it’s becoming a real problem when @white-rainbowff has to resort to mailing me this for motivation.
Ugh, if only I can tell my PI that RT-PCR is not the same as qRT-PCR. He thinks I can do everything and dumps work like nobody’s business *wallows in project cesspool*
I just saw one of your song asks and consider: "Black Pear Tree" from Lucretia's pov.
i haven’t listened to this before but honestly this was very weirdly melancholy and fitting. it gave me a real vibe of lucretia like……..knowing that what she was going to do was terrible, and seeing the rest of her future and the knowledge of her betrayal, the understanding that she is going to do terrible things, and doing them anyway. because she had to.
