  • Remember when I said "22 down, 5 more to go"? Yeah... uhm... Turns out the story needs another extra chapter or two. It's now "25 down, 4 more to go". But I almost passed the 100K words, so that's going pretty well. :D
    Marorda on a bicycle versus a twig on the road. Who wins? Hint: it's the twig and I bruised my wrist/hand.
    Me writing my first draft: Hmm. I don't know what to do with this chapter yet. I'll be smart and skip it!
    Me, editing the draft and getting to said chapter: That was not clever. I still don't know how to handle this.
    Such a sad day. The Notre Dame is burning and is likely largely lost :(

    I know right? So sad to see... yet strangely beautiful in a terrifying way. I saw one picture specifically that could've been pretty if it weren't for a monument burning down... I remember seeing the Notre Dame myself, twelve or thirteen years ago. And now...

    I honestly feel bad how the picture inspires me for writing a particular scene in a manuscript. Probably because that's also a scene in which an ancient large tower is burning to the ground. Different reasons, same sentiment.

    I'm glad you got the chance to see it! I wish I had.

    Don't feel bad for your writing inspiration. Anne McCaffery wrote about a character's death after having to put down a beloved horse, and the scenes were all the more tragic and touching for the real-life feelings behind it.

    I was twelve when I saw it. Don't remember a lot. Just that I took a picture. Wish I could have seen it more recently. Now... I might never get the chance again.

    Yeah, in my story a civil war breaks out in the capital city after a group called "the Revolution" bombs/burns down a place called "the Spire". It's the highest tower in the realm and also the seat of power. (Yay, Steampunk/YA/Fantasy)
    One of the pictures I spotted just looked like what I'd imagine the burning Spire to look like.

    Usually when your boss tells you to set goals it means you need to improve. In my case it's "You need new goals to keep work interesting because your performance is perfect" xD
    Being a cat-slave doesn't mean I wish to be woken up at 1:30 AM. Not even for purrs, cuddles, and kisses. I wish Mimi understood...

    Seems like my reaction didn't get posted yesterday... I have a cat since a week. A rescue who has yet to learn I don't want to cuddle 24/7

    Apofiss on DeviantArt. They're pretty awesome. I have more pictures on my laptop by this artist. Probably all my panda-related profile pictures are made by this person <3
    Week 2/3 for the exams is almost over! Can't believe I'll likely graduate this summer... Unless I screw up XD

    You'll do great! ^_^
    I've been stuck on a chapter in my story for about 2 months. Yesterday I finally started writing on it again. Just now it was finished! :D Getting closer and closer to the end now.
    I'm just done with classes already, and my second week back only just started! I'm tired, I want a break, and I want to fast forward to my finals so I can start working. And move out of my flat.

    Oh, I definitely am okay XD It's just that getting back to classes after working an internship for five months is... quite the drag. And with the job I have now I make some pretty long days, too. Definitely gonna schedule less hours from next week on. 18 hours of work per week besides the about 25 hours of classes might just be a little bit too much to squeeze into five days. XD

    This Thursday I'll leave the house at 8 in the morning and I won't really be home until 9.45PM... Just around 2 or so to drop off my bag, pack my dinner and rush to my job XD
    Not doing that again next week...

    That sounds really busy
    Can I just fast forward my life by six weeks? I don't wanna do this (classes) anymore. I just want to do my finals and be done with it!
    In about a year and a half, I'm going to need a note from my home city saying I am not dead. Somehow I find that very funny.
