Green-Clad in Gardens

Continued from Priests and Princesses.

The princess’s day ended with the sun’s setting, and she fell onto her bed in her full gown.  Her eyes slipped shut, and as they did, she thought she heard Ehla scolding her.

When she woke, it was to the strange, shadowless grey light of early morning coming through the dome around her.  Her back and shoulders objected as she rose to sit, and her legs and hips took their turn when she stood.  A glance in the mirror showed her face had been washed of makeup and her dress had been changed for a nightgown.  As she looked around, she didn’t see Ehla, and decided to skip on the shower, and instead put on something less pristine, white, and imperial than her ruling gown.  She crossed the large floor to the wardrobe and opened it.  Her fingers undid her buttons and she let her nightgown fall as she looked through the clothing.  She had several things in several colors, though nothing was dark, and there was no black in sight.

Quick question:

Who can identify all the toons (except the last one) from yesterday’s story? I’ve used them before in stories.  Sorry if the second one is a bit of hard mode.

Camp NaNoWriMo – Tenth Update

A productive day yesterday, but I didn’t get much ground on the days I missed.  I plan to improve on that today, this time without allowing myself to be distracted by games or forums.  I’m on a strict timer!  Hopefully I can ignore the television.

On to the resource of the day!

NaNoWriMo Update

Well, faithful readers (holy crap, you guys are still giving me views), I have an update on the writing front!

I’m not a complete failure at the NaNo!  I’m a little bit ahead because I’ve been insisting on doing 900 words extra each day (minimum) for the sake of getting some buffer built up for the holidays.  My current count of 14,109 words is entirely thanks to this blog.  Without learning how to sit my keester (my spell check has got to be lying to me) down and write, I would not have made it this far.  Without The Sand Flea infecting me through this blog, I would have no story.

Without you lovely people who read this thing despite its deadness (you necrophiliacs, you), I wouldn’t feel that extra little push of peer pressure that helps me get things done.

Right now, I’m completely rewriting The Sand Flea.  So far, much is similar, and after editing, I’m going to work with my beloved editor and best friend, and work out how to make this novel version suck less.  Then, I’m going to hunt down one of my friends that is awesome at murdering stories with editing, let that friend go crazy, and work more from there.

Eventually, I will get this published, and when I do… well, the people who follow this blog will be the first I tell about it (other than the people who overhear my wild squealing over my book coming out in print).

If I can, I’ll try to figure out a discount for people who come to this humble blog, as well!

Crack

Ok, rundown time.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been seeing Minecraft everywhere, and have become obsessed with a song called Cube Land.  Finally, a few hours ago, I gave in and started (yet another) world. Read the rest of this entry »

Art and Movies (nonstory)

So, just to keep people updated (because apparently I have a new follower!), I have decided to try to post relevant stuff here even if it isn’t a story.

He looks so adorably evil!

Drawn by Zeamay.

To begin, I’ve been scouring the internet (see: Syndrone Online) for affordable artists, and I finally found one to draw Ask for me.  I used the description I yoinked from his posts, and I think it turned out nicely.  Now, I wonder if it stacks up to my readers’ impression of his appearance!  We shall see, right?

I have another drawing I bought of him as well, but it’s not quite so lovely.

On an only marginally-related topic, I’ve been watching some delicious Studio Ghibli films, and they’re inspiring me quite a bit.  I’m holding back on writing stories with that inspiration for now though, and simply letting the ideas percolate and grow into something very interesting.

Also, watching Ghibli films in French?  Magnifique!

Au revoir for now, loves!

Glorious Peeps and a Mother’s Love

I have always enjoyed Easter.  Ever since I was a young child, finding that basket and those eggs have been moments of pure joy.  My tired parents always watched closely, and if my siblings and I struggled, they would tell us how many eggs were left, and tell us which rooms the Easter Bunny hid them in.

After the morning hunt, we went to church and had another hunt, or had fun games an activities.  I don’t remember church things as well, because I didn’t enjoy them as much.  My parents were happy there, however, so I sat quietly and read whatever I could find.  If I was bored enough and didn’t have books of my own, I read Revelations.  It didn’t make much sense to me at the time, but it was much more interesting than the other parts of the Bible.
