Literature
Writing Tips: Deconstruction
It's time to talk about parody's twin brother: the deconstruction. Actually, it's more like a ying-yang thing. Everything that parody would not be good at tackling, deconstruction should work fairly well, and vice-versa. This means that deconstruction is better when it's target is something that you specifically don't like. The object of a deconstruction is to apply real-life consequences to a fictional cliche or comedy, and for some reason they almost always get a higher praise than parody, even though parody is harder to do, does it for less respect, and can say multiple different things. A deconstruction can say only one thing: "this idea is stupid." Almost all good deconstructions amount to that.
Let's start, as we always do, by getting some misconceptions out of the way. First of all, you need all of the typical narrative pieces. You can't just get away for saying "this is stupid" for 90-minutes. Like a parody, you need identifiable characters and a coherent narrative. A deconstru

So I recently started using the "Watch" tab on the homepage because hey, I didn't have to keep opening page after page after page after page to leave comments on artists' works. A nice streamlined feature, really. Except apparently I'm a spammer because I'm utilizing a function that's meant to make community interaction simpler and time-efficient. This is a tremendous design oversight, and I can only imagine how many others have tried to get more involved with the community, only to be told sorry, you're commenting too often. Who cares if the majority of those comments are more than a word or emoticon?

And here I thought I might be ready to really get immersed in the site. Epic fail, deviantart. Don't create tools and features if you're just going to penalize the users for utilizing them.

(And yes, I'll get over it, which is why this complaint is tucked away in my journals instead of plastered all over the forums and help desk.)
