Alright ladies and gentlemen,

Tis the second day of my TERRIFYING REIGN of this journal xD and today is all about the prompts!

This week I'm handling both the Light and Dark prompts so you'll be getting a bit of my own flavour in both. I do apologise though as I only wrote 3 for each, but I'm sure you'll have some fun with them and of course I intend to write according to the prompts as well :'3



- A smile is a beautiful thing. Why not make someone smile with your writing (Dedicate it to them! Either explicitly or implicitly ;'3)

- You've come a long way from the past. Think back on the good times (Bonus: Use day and night as a part of the poem!)

- When the Sun found the Moon she/he was...? (Use this as a part of your poem, but please don't write "drinking tea in a garden" xD)


- As we share a drink in an old tavern, tell me a tale of how broken your heart is. (Drinks are on me mate)

- You know what's funny. I cared about this girl so deeply that I'd drop anything just to make her smile. She's marrying someone else tonight... (Use this as the theme and feel free to substitute the genders as necessary ^^)

- You're probably thinking of texting your ex by the time you get to this prompt right? Go ahead, write her the text that you never sent be it sad or angry. Just show me what you've got (Bonus: Poem has rhymes and can be rapped :'P Think Hollywood Undead)

Please don't forget to put in either the title or the description that this is a prompt, as well as tag it with #LnDPrompt and #TheWriterGang if you can. :D


Now as Sakurai has mentioned before, I'll redo Writer Showcase #9 when I get the chance, but I've gotta get through the backlog I have first.

In the mean time, please enjoy the following things!

First up, my 301 Appeal! If you don't know what this is, it's basically a way to get more of your art advertised for FREE! All you have to do is participate in the appeal. Most of the details will be in my journal on the DA page.

If you'd like to see how it works just check out the 3rd video in my :iconwordofchen:'s 301 Appeal Shout-outs, starring Sakurai as one of the participants.

In addition to that please enjoy, Deviant Poetry - Writing Unleashed - Ep #12

Round 4 of my :iconwordofchen:'s 301 Appeal is already underway so make sure to join if you haven't already (And even if you have already XD).

Here's a reminder of how it works:

If you want to get a little bit more exposure for your page and work, just join up with the appeal and post your score to me, details are in the journal:…


Check out some of Chen's other Writer Gang related videos, if you haven't already:

And last but not least, a big thank you to everyone who submits their work into our lovely group and I know you don't see me much outside of the videos and my personal work, but I truly love all of you.

Anyway tomorrow I'll be bringing you all both the Light and Dark prompts so stay tuned and I'll see you in the next one!

Your Boy Chennie

Rules of the Group & How It Works

A reminder of how this group works by my friend Chen :meow:

And click the link below to see what it'd look like if you got your poem read by our one and only Chen:…


Rule 1: No NSFW content. We're trying to appeal to all ages.

Rule 2: No trolling or being rude.
Self-explanatory really. We're here for fun, not to start wars. We have enough of those in real world as it is.

Rule 3: Since we always ask the permission of the ORIGINAL creator if we can read out their work, if a piece gets read of which the creator is NOT known, it could get us into serious trouble for using it without their permission.
So please, if you do NOT own a piece, we'd like to ask you all to NOT add it to our group, especially if you were considering having it read. That you submit it to your own DA account, is entirely up to you, but PLEASE don't add it on here.

Rule 4: Non-compliance with these rules will result in an automatic warning, before a ban is enacted on the second time.
We don't like to do this, but we also want to foster a nice, relaxed environment where everyone works together.

Rule 5: Since Chen is going to be SUPER busy with making videos both for this group and his channel, I'll be the main contact for this group.
So if you have any questions, suggestions or just want to talk, you can send them to me, since you probably will only only get an answer from Chen after Three...Days...Grace? (yeah, I didn't get it either)

Rule 6: Submit your work to the right folder.
So if you want your work read out in a video, put it in the "Readings" folder, short stories (one-shots etc.) into its folder, etc. etc.
If you're not sure, do you put it in the "Sorting Folder" and I'll put it in its correct place, or y' can let me know and I'll tell you where it belongs.

Rule 7: Just have fun! Yeah, we're the scary admin people, but we want to make this a nice place where people can chill and have fun whilst creating what they enjoy - which is art. So enjoy!


"WARNING: Depending on the admin you're talking to, you'll either get casual conversation or high levels of professionalism.
Tread with extreme caution"


"Our unicorgi Chen is ridiculously passionate, so be prepared to be burned if you get it him, lol. He will show you the power of a hot blooded anime protagonist!"

Join us in our chat room if you like! We don't bite :dummy:…

To all of the contemporary, free verse poets, I wondered if one or more of you might consider a poetic collaboration with me. 
I want to combine classical and contemporary poetry in one. 
We would pick a topic or theme and one of us would write a couple of lines in our style and send it to the other to do the same. 
We'll go back and forth until the poem is completed. 
Anybody interested?

Hi there,

I'm down for this. I work with urban style raps the best and I would love to collaborate with a classical style poet. So, drop me a note and I'll see what we can do.

If you'd like to see what I normally do, just drop by my page. My recent two works are in my original urban style that I used before I started DA

Hi, I'm interested; it sounds like a really fun idea! :D
So, what did you have in mind? ^^
xXChiharuDawnXx Featured By Owner May 23, 2017  Student General Artist
Just give me a list of topics that you like to write about and we'll narrow it down from there.
Once the topic is chosen, you'll go first with a stanza with four lines from the topic and I'll follow after.

Oh, ok. You want me to send them in here or in a note? :?
