Incorporating Emotion

If you've ever read my writing, mostly short stories-then you know it's stark. Not dreary, but to the point. Deliberate. Serious. I use humor(I hope you can recognize my humor), but it's deliberate. Like when my post about popularity changed to shoes and Star Wars. Some people writing humor and parodies come easily. They can easily make funny and likable characters. 
Not me. Mine are dry, clipped and whiningly-sarcastic who would probably shoot me with a cannon the moment they met me. Or shoot me out of a cannon.....
Or at least the first time I write them. Then I have to go back and give them actual personalities.  Gah.
My writing model is LOTF. Dry, clipped, sad,  at the same time hilarious, and romance-less.  Lets see if I can pull it off. 20k and the war hasn't even started yet.

PS. There have been 3 "Awesome People" added to my sidebar. in ONE DAY!!!!! That's like Christmas, my birthday, Halloween, Easter, Presidents Day, and um, Cinco de Mayo all rolled into one! Unfortunately, I write about writing, Star Wars, and travelings, and I rarely find people who like all three. And I have to please you, or else, you know, you'll unfollow me. And that's very unfun.
I should probably start three different blogs that actually stay on subject matter. But nah. That's not cool.
You will read what I write. About anything. And you will like it.

  1. I agree with the writing personality. I'm kind of the same way. My writing is short, to the point, has a dry sort of humor to it, and romance-less. I'd like to add romance into it, but I'm just so bad at writing it. xD And I'm also bad at descriptions and long conversations, which are things that I always have to bookmark and come back to later.

    PS: I think I am one of these awesome people. ^-^

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
