Litmas 2009: The Attitude is Gratitude

hq is hosting our Christmas contests this year, but it isn't Christmas on dA without Litmas celebrations.  In lieu of a contest, we're asking you to write a letter showing your gratitude to someone who has made your life better.  Instead of giving a thank you note after you receive a gift, the letter of appreciation is a gift in itself.

Appreciation comes in many forms, so don't feel too bound by the traditional concept of a thank you note.  If you'd like to include anecdotes, poems, or stories in your letter, go ahead.  If you'd like to include quotations from the recipient, do.  If you'd like to write a poem or a story and dedicate it to someone as a gift instead of writing a letter, that's cool, too.  What matters is that you demonstrate your appreciation using words.

If you have a scanner, we would all love to see handwritten letters.  Feel free to decorate the margins of the paper or make your own stationery if you'd like.  If you craft a beautiful, handwritten love letter but lack a scanner, type up the content to share on dA and give the original to your beloved.

We encourage all deviants from all genres to join in.  Visual artists, this means you!

Upload your thank-you notes to dA as either a text deviation or a scanned image, and note them to all four literature GMs by December 21st (fllnthblnk, LadyLincoln, SparrowSong, StJoan) so that we can feature them over the holidays.
