August Updates

1) I may as well get the disappointing out right away.  I lost Camp NaNoWriMo.  I would have had to tell you eventually.  I am still happy I got started on my story-hopefully this should help me to finish it in the future 🙂

2) I began an Online Japanese course!  Woot!

3) I painted most of my room, and should be done soon

4) I am going to camp soon.  It has cabins and wonderful food.  There is one night generally where one’s cabin sleeps in a lean-to or in the forest, and another where all the cabins in one section of the camp (there are three) go on a hunt for their flag in the middle of the night and try to make it back to the bell before the other campers.  It is a surprise which night it is, too.  We generally have to venture through a creek and hide in some bushes, giving a very good chance to get poison ivy.  Somehow, miraculously, I haven’t gotten it before.  But I have always been rather reluctant to do either activity, to put it mildly.  This time, however, I am going to try to not only be positive about it, but also make the best of it.  After all, there’s no point in ruining it for the people around you, right?

How did you guys do on NaNoWriMo?  Doing anything crafty?  Finally, is there any tips you gave for my camping experience, for example, what to bring, what to do, ect.?  I’d be happy to hear them in the comments below!  Don’t forget to follow and like if you enjoyed this post!

Making Your Experience Better

Hello all!  So, when I started this blog, it was really something fun for just me to do.  Then I started getting all of you wonderful followers.  Though this may seem to be a small number to others. the fact that you take an interest in what I have to say is very encouraging, especially in respect to my confidence in my writing ability.  If you have time, I would like to ask a few questions on behalf of your reading enjoyment 😉

1) I have been playing some visual novels lately, especially otome games, and I was wondering if you would like me to begin reviewing games.  I admit-I’m not an expert when it comes to games, but if you want me to, I’d be happy to provide you with a different perspective!

2) Are there any topics you would prefer I not talk about as much?

3) Are there topics you wish I covered more?

Comments would be especially appreciated on this post, as feedback is crucial.  I will also take every like on this post as a yes to number one.  If I get enough likes, I will begin reviewing games as well as books.  Thank you for your time, your support, and your continued interest. 🙂

Spirit Week! >.<

Next week at my school is ‘Spirit Week’.  I don’t know if other schools do it, but at ours it means there is a theme every day and people dress according to that theme.  Also, usually they judge how well the people go along with the themes and they get prizes at lunch if they win.  Monday is Fictional Character Day, Tuesday is Spirit Day, when we all wear school colors, Wednesday is Tourist Day, Thursday is Twin Day, where you pair up with someone and dress the same clothes, same hairstyle, ect., and Friday is Class Colors Day.  Each class is assigned a color to wear, and mine is orange.  However, we are trying to change that as none of us have orange clothes.

The day that I focus most on each year is Fictional Character Day.  However, I don’t know who to dress up as.  I am considering Maka Albarn, from Soul eater, but I’m not sure for two reasons.  One, I have glasses, and blue eyes, which she does not.  Two, anime isn’t well known at my school and I’m not sure if it’ll be worth it if like one person recognizes my outfit.  Though, I just told  Midori about it, and she seems so excited that I might cosplay, that may be enough reason to do it.  For any of you that don’t know, cosplay, or kosupre, is when one dresses up as an anime character.  I’ve never done it before.

Finally, a little announcement of happiness~I have practically finished my outline, and plan to make any more changes while I write.  Also, I began drawing my map, and found my father’s insight to be very helpful about where large cities during medieval times would be situated.  So, now I enter the stretch where I develop ridiculous details about the culture of the country, that may not even come up, and research the medieval methods of traveling and trade.  After all, there are about two halves to making a book.  Writing the book, and researching for the book.
