Blank Canvas ch 1
Guy collapsed onto his bed with a sigh.
It had been a long, long day.
He tugged off his gloves and let them fall onto the bed next to him as he contemplated simply sleeping in his clothes. It was tempting to just lay there, but he knew Pere would never let him hear the end of it. So he sat up with a groan and began working his boots off - Score, his feet were swollen - as he wondered how things could've possibly gone any worse.
First, there'd been that mess in the kitchen early that morning with the new cook thinking he was flirting with her - which was completely untrue, by the way, he really had been just complimenting her haircut - and then there'd been the argument with Ramdas over said misunderstanding, which had ended with him getting assigned attic cleaning duty next week, something he wasn't even remotely looking forward to starting.
And then there'd been the fight in the laundry room just before lunch between three of the maids over who was sleeping with who's boyfriend, which

Uncertain News
I am possesed of an urge
to throw something at you
To shriek
and scream
and howl
and wail
You have been unfair to me
And in spite of my rage and fear
for I know these are selfish of me
What you have been through is
undoubtedly much, much worse
I received only uncertainty from you
Unwelcome news that has made me hate you
Even though you and I both know
That I love you, Little Brother
Dear Friend
But you received that news first
And I know you must be afraid
Though you speak of the goodness
of pizza
And appear to be in a Good Mood
You must be afraid
Anyone would be in your place
But I know you very well
And I know that you prefer
to hide away in games
and shows
where I would hide in books
Just to escape the bigness
of that overwhelming, awful fear
There is none worse than it
except, perhaps,
for speaking before our peers
or to any large-ish crowd
But even in my sympathy
I am still possessed of an urge
to throw something at you
My voice, a shirt,
a bottle of water,
a shoe
I am still fille

Writing Notes - Killing characters
Many writers state that they are very connected to their characters. This is not surprising, for writers we build worlds, we create people and animals and imbue them with a form of life. We let them live in our heads and think on them often.
Often I have day-dreamed into my written world, sat on a log watching my characters around the campfire swapping stories. I've seen them laughing, passing around skins of bad wine and spiced meats. I've seen them sink into sorrow at those they have lost, those they couldn't save. Whether any of this gets written is a different matter because it is all designed for me to learn more about my characters, so see them react.
We begin to know them intimately, their moods and habits and loves and fears. We can read their facial ticks and subtle body poses. So why wouldn't we become connected?
When you write stories especially long ones were you have a larger amount of time to learn about your characters and allow them to develop they do become something i

Writer Notes- Plot Development
Whether you are writing a novel or a short story it is best to have your MAIN PLOT before you get too much written down.  The Main Plot is the singular thread that runs through the novel/story.  You may have character ideas or scene ideas but eventually you need to think about a plot.  Do this sooner rather than later.
The best way to do this is to list your main characters and then decide what are their individual main plots. Are they all on the same quest with the same ideas / goals or do some of them have their own goals?
To help show this, here's an example:
Main Characters
Eric – To become knighted and serve his king
Vivian – To destroy her former master before he can poison the kingdom
Luke – To find his brother
Other Detail
Taldor – The largest city
Maybe from this list you decide Vivian is the MAIN character and her story line is the driving force however each of the other three have story lines that need to be tol

Literature
Synonyms, the Thesaurus, and You
Every now and then, I see one of those lists going round, be it on Tumblr, shared on blogs, or whatever.  You know, those lists; the ones that go on for eight miles listing ten synonyms for dozens of common words.
I hate those lists.  In the wrong hands, they often do more harm than good.  And in the right hands, they‘re just sort of useless.
There's one going around I do rather like, because it points out the idiocy of these lists.  At the top, it says, 'instead of whispered, consider…' and lists off a whole bunch of words.  One of those words is 'insinuated'.   And the very first response to that list? 'Aye lil mama, let me insinuate in ya ear.'  Now, that sentence sounds utterly ridiculous, because whisper and insinuate do not mean the same thing.  Not even close.  But these lists are often rife thesaurus copypasta like this that upon closer inspection make very little sense.
Let's take the word 'got' for a mome

Let the Fall Make You Stronger.
"Hey! Are you all right?"
"Sure, why wouldn't I be?"
"Um...because you just fell from the roof of the hou-"
"See, that's where you're wrong. I didn't fall. The floor challenged me and I accepted."
"And how did that go for you?"
"The floor won. But only because it had the advantage."
"Of being non sentient and vast in size, along with the fact that there is a freaking storm out!!"
"Nope. I just attacked from the wrong position."
"Backwards?"
"I overestimated my skills."
"I'll say. You're bleeding!"
"Only a little. Ask me again."
"What?"
"If I'm fine."
"Are you?"
"Nope."
"Is it because you're bleeding?"
"You're supposed to ask 'Why'."
"God, you're so bloody difficult!"
"But cute. Just ask."
"Oh for-Why?"
"Because this world we live in, it gives us these dreams, you see. These great big beautiful colourful galaxies in our heads of ideas, thoughts and empathetic conclusions to our fellow humans. Our brain tells us, go on, be curious, make those mistakes.

Hello, everyone!

Sorry it's been so long since I've updated. I hope you've all been well.

I've been working on improving my skills as a storyteller, studying what makes a good story to begin with, and writing my first original novel. I haven't abandoned my fan projects here, but they have been taking a backseat to the work that I hope to someday make a living off of.

That said, here's the latest:

A Pikachu in the Desert - being replanned and rewritten, first draft in progress
1st 1/4: some planning done, will be starting a first draft today
2nd 1/4 of the story: most planning done, ~3/4 of first draft finished
3rd 1/4: just started planning
4th 1/4: some planning done

---

An Afternoon in St. Binah - first draft complete, needs to be replanned and rewritten
On hold.

---

I have several Marvel fics in various stages of planning and writing, too, but there are so many of them that I'm going to wait to put a progress update here until I've decided which will be getting finished first.

---

That's all for now. When I have a proper update schedule worked out, or at least decided what will qualify a work for being updated (words, chapters, still deciding), I'll make another journal. In the mean time, I hope you all have a wonderful day! See you soon!

Hullo! :iconfurrylaplz: I am me.

About twenty years ago, I started writing and drawing for fun and I've loved making art ever since. Along with using paper and pencils/pens or my tablet and an art program, I also enjoy making art with yarn by crocheting (which my sister and I learned together several years back) and knitting (which I learned to do with the help of a booklet sometime in 2009). Some of my favorite yarn projects include small, cute dolls with big animal heads and socks.

I love character driven stories and playing video games, reading books, and watching shows and movies that have them.

I have a slight case of procrastination, but I've steadily been getting better and better.

Please feel free to offer suggestions on how I can improve my art! I'm always looking to draw a better picture.
