I am dead. School starts in like two weeks, and I still haven't started my math assignment. Also, I literally just got back from vacation fifteen minutes ago, and holy crap, I am so tired. I can barely type this. I'm just glad I don't have to hit my head on the top bunk every time I go to lay on the bottom bunk. So yeah, my math is super easy, but I also have a babysitting job soon and multiple home projects to start/finish. PlusI have a huuuuuuge list of books to finish before summer ends, so...
In other words, I'm screwed.
I also had to read a book and make a "one pager" on it, and of course, like every year, I chose the worst possible book to read. I don't know how I get stuck with the boring ones, but it always happens.The book was Bloomby Kenneth Oppel. I do not recommend it. I also don't get why my school is making teenagers read middle-grade books. I could've read it in one sitting, but I was too busy using sticky notes and noting...stuff. Anyway, I stopped noting on page 78, but I still had 116 sticky notes.
More news!I'm considering having my current story put on break, but I don't know if I should. I'm probably going to be crazy busy this school year, so I might not update as often.
Here's a funny story:So my younger cousins are in camp right now, and two of my best friends are counselors there. Apparently, one of my friends was a counselor for my girl cousin and they told her, "I know your cousin, ***." Now I think my cousin thinks my friend has legit superpowers...
Fun times, am I right? I think I'm gonna take a nap now.
I love the campfire
The warmth, the smell, the bright light.
I watch the wood burning bright
And wish I could burn bright
Like the campfire light
I love the campfire
The quiet, the calm, the peace.
And when the world is swirling
I wish to be like the flames, twirling
And finally be free
I love the campfire
The orange dancing flames
Its dance grips me in a daze
I wish to be a dancer, too
Those bright, orange flames
I love the campfire
Its warmth grips my heart
And although this world is cruel
The fire brings them together
I wish to be like the fire
Giving love to their hearts
Decided to do some drawings for @MarkTwain2.0’s “Fall of Ages.” (It’s a 3-book series and b2 is currently in progress!)
I drew Cameo (guy on the right) a while ago but was requested to repost it. So… here you go; here’s that again. In addition, I also drew Harley, a side character in the story. Bear in mind that I’m showing my own vision of the characters; I’m not going based off the Artbreeder pictures.
I suppose that wraps this up. Check out FoA if you haven’t already. :)
PS: I think I’d rather take a more “casual” and shorter approach to my fanart posts.
When Fuyuri Gonbai, a loner shut-in, has a dream about an ensuing zombie apocalypse, he doesn't believe it at first. But when he starts to see the signs, Gonbai decides to prepare.
Ok, so let's talk about this thing called planning.
Seriously, pretty much all my writing works have zero planning and are made up along the way. And I know that that's kind of how writing works, but I've seen people have whole posters filled with Post-It notes planning the plot and spend monthsbefore they start the first draft.
Well, at least for right this second.
For those of you who don't know, ITW is basically the 4th draft that I'm posting on Penana right now. But with Maddox, my Beta Reader's help, I'll probably update the posted chapters of ITW after this is all posted. Don't worry, it won't change too much. Mostly grammatical errors and just things to help the story look better.
But what some of you don'tknow, is that the first draft for the second book is already written. That's right, the second book. And with that, I have started the planning process for the third book.
Yep, I'm planning this one, baby.
Basically, it's like a plot outline that I'm working on so I know which main plot point happens and everything else.
So yeah, planning. It's a new experience for me. I've never felt so organized.
But wait, there's more!
I already have the main idea for how the fourth and fifth books are gonna go, along with the ending. And let me tell ya, folks, it's gonna be great. Well, I mean, for me it'll be great, cause I'll finally be done with this mess, but for you, maybe not. I don't know. Depends on how well you like the ending.
And...just a fair warning, there will be death. Lots of death. I mean, you've already experienced a little bit of my creative power killing people through the deaths of most of the characters' parents. But there will be more. Gut-wrenching, tear-jerking, book-throwing death! You will want to kidnap the characters and give them ice cream so bad, that you'll go insane! I mean, seriously, there are a lot of good and bad people dying. Just...everyone who isn't one of the main characters can and probably will die. Well, okay, the main characters can die, too, but I just choose when they will or won't.
I know, I'm seriously not okay. But I wanted to at least warn you of the amount of death before you experience it for yourself.
Despite all this death, it will also be extremely hilarious, and a couple of times reading it again I will laugh out loud. And...romance. It isn't too much, and no explicit scenes, (remember this is still PG-13) but you might be able to already see some of the bonds growing.
Speaking of that, tell me your potential ships in the comments below!
But anyways, have a good day and remember to love each other always!
Hey guys! So yesterday I was quite bored and I had this urge to take photos and that was exactly what I did. I went to the garden and took pictures of lovely stuff. To be honest I'm quite proud of the results. The next few issues will contain the pictures I took since Penana only allows one chapter image.
Have a flobbergistical day!
I forgot I had this blog and was about to make a super long stream post lmao
Anyway, I recently realized that I have I have eleven ideas for stories in the Ghostwriter universe. (The * ones don't have a title yet)
In order of timeline we have:1: *Mythsian Rom-Com - A Mythsian constantly fangirls over the people in the worlds she watches, until eventually falling in love with a human. Rom-com hijinks ensue since she has never actually interacted with people and is incrediblyawkward. (This was also kind of Gironashi's idea so we'll see who makes it first lmao)2: Bloodshiners: Already got into this one a bit, but this is a 1870-1920s mafia type story containing magic drugs and starring teen Wile3: World Jumper - Kind of a prequel to Ghostwriter, would be a bunch of short stories/comics following teenage Kage watching all sorts of different worlds and quests. I would also be able to go into a lot more detail about Islestar and the Mythsians. It would be more of a fun story, with some hints at the things to come.4: *Collab with Gironashi that takes place in Mirac, the world in Ghostwriter Book 2. We had some awesome ideas for this and even started it, but never got any further. I personally think it would be really good though, so I want to finish eventually.5: *considering "Love, Murder, and Other Plans for the Future" as the title. It came to me at like 1am last night though so we'll see if it sticks. Starring two characters I can't name because of spoilers, their backstory is going to be briefly covered in one of the Ghostwriter books, but I honestly think I could make a whole story out of it.6: Ghostwriter 1 - The one I'm very, very slowly writing. The one with the chapter I promised would be out soon like a week ago (I'm sorry)7: Ghostwriter 2 - This one has the coolest world. There's just no room for debate8: Ghostwriter 3 - The conclusion of the trilogy! (yes, there's a book 4 right below)9: Ghostwriter 4 - This one's kind of an epilogue(I should really make titles for these huh)10: *Wile's After Story - Exactly like it sounds. Wile's appearance Ghostwriter is when he's in his mid 20s I'd say? This story would take place right after that, when a war causes him to leave the country and go wreak havoc elsewhere for a while.11: *Finale/Finale's Girl (I also thought of this title randomly at work yesterday, does it sound stupid? I can't decide if it's stupid or genius(since you know, the Final Girl is a trope in horror movies)) - This would be my first attempt at horror, and would most likely be a comic. I was thinking about a finale for Wile's story, and I think a horror-type thing with a new main character would be the only way to give it a satisfying ending.I'm hoping to do concept art for all of these soon.
What do you think? Good ideas? Bad ideas? Any thoughts on titles?
OK, some might find it tacky to “celebrate” your characters’ birthdays, but I say it’s perfectly fine so long as you don’t celebrate to the point where they seem like a real person.
So, today I come bearing a drawing of Melissa.
(OK, I drew and wrote this post in advance, but it’s being released on the 15th, so… whatever!)
I know it’s strange to celebrate the birthday of a character whose book hasn’t even been published yet. I feel like, to mitigate that awkwardness, I can just share some plans for Melissa and her character:
1. One of my favorite characters, for some reason.
2. Her backstory is also one of my dearest backstories I’ve written.
3. She doesn’t seem like that much at first, but just wait.
Nice to see her smiling in the drawing. Too bad all the happiness may or may not go down the drain soon.
So I'm really into the whole STEAM thing and tech stuff. I'm in a club and they gave me a kit and said to make a drone so I followed it and here ya go...drone. I need to figure out how to make it not just hover though. I may have fucked up with that bit. But you can say it works. I would show you guys a video of me flying it but then you would hear my voice and also sadly penena doesn't really work with videos. Sorry bout that
I don't know if it's a writing-related update but it's an update related to a story of mine. I already chucked this up on my status but I thought I would put it here. Soooo do yall know my story flyer boy? If you don't I would recommend reading it before reading the rest of this. But basically, I'm going back to that market tomorrow mainly because I love going to that market but also to maybe see the guy. So uhh cross ya fingers I guess. Because I will definitely end up writing about it if I see him.
So! I was reading Cheeto’s recent APS post about her OC’s birthday and I realized I totally, one hundred percent missed Ethaniel’s way back in early July.
So I’ll celebrate now!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday, dear Ethaniel!
Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!
Stupid autocorrect, stop telling me Ethaniel’s not a word!!!
