Gallery Descriptions Month



Have you ever wandered through the Literature Gallery here on dA and wondered what the Characters & Settings sub category was for?  Then ask no more.  It should almost be obvious what goes in here, but let's play dumb for a minute. 

The Characters & Settings gallery is NOT for your prose, poetry or scripts.  Finished stories or poems don't belong here.  They belong in their own categories.  Here, we should find character information.  Well what is character information:

  • Characters Sheets.  Any character sheet that you've completed for your character(s) and would like to share.  Blank sheets should be submitted to the Resources & Stocks > Tutorials > Writing gallery.
  • Character Profiles or Biographies.  You wrote a short description or history for your character but it won't be included in the final cut of your story.
  • Setting the Scene.  Like a Character Description but for your setting, it's a description of the world your story is set in.  Which could vary from a lengthy History Of to a brief listing of fantasy races/species.
  • Plot Outlines. A full outline of the how the story will begin, move forward and eventually end all put together into a single deviation.
  • Synopsis. This is a brief summary of what your story is about and usually consists of a few paragraphs, sometimes includes a list of characters but definitely includes the end of the story.  This is what would be sent to publishers/agents/reviewers/betas.
  • Blurbs. Similar to a synopsis, but not the same.  A blurb includes the same things as a synopsis EXCEPT the ending.  It's the back of the book summary that you use to hook a reader in.

Here are some examples of what you should expect to find in the

I Cared More Than You Thought (Dan's Backstory)Dan followed Katharine through the dense forest, following the path they took everyday to the mines. He looked around at the scenery surrounding them which included a variety of tall trees, bushy plants, and tall grass. His nine-year-old mind was captivated with nature and creatures.
However, he was not very fond of deer or bunnies or dogs. He rather found happiness from the opposite.
Dan kneeled down as a small, green snake slithered out from a patch of rocks. Swiftly, he picked it up and held the serpent near the head so it could not turn and bite him.
"Hi there..." he said as he stood up. "I'm Daniel." he smiled.
The snake squirmed a bit, and Dan watched it. 
He was very fond of the cold-blooded. Reptiles were his favorite animals. He was teased for it back at the camp, but he didn't mind. He captured lizards and snakes whenever he wanted, and he hid them from their leader.
"Daniel!" Katharine screamed and stormed over to him. "Do you want us to get another penalty!?" she snapp
