Another Writing Class thing

Yeah, I'm posting select pieces of my writing portfolio. Why? Cuz why not? Short story behind cut.

Beautiful Stranger

Slowly, he pushes your hair out of the way. His touch is gentle but there's something off. He leaves his hand in your hair a second too long.Collapse )


Livejournal wouldn't let me copy and paste it into the cut (maybe I should you the html format?) so I had to type it out. Which is why it took me so long to post this.


Some poetry I did in Writing Class

Prompt: It had been raining steadily

It's been raining steadily
And it doesn't look like its gonna stop

Without the sun,
The sky is a grayish blue

The wind throws a garbage bin
In a childish tantrum

I feel so light and meek
Am I next?

Because I wanted to...

So I do this AU Avatar roleplay (found here) and it came up that Ty Lee has Ruby Red shoes... and a blue gingham dress...

Which kinda lead to this:

It looked way too light after I scanned it (Her skin came out way too white) so I used Photoshop to fix it which made the shoe color awesome. As for the rest, it still looks better in real life. But it is a definite improvement.

I hate the way I drew the shoes though. I'll have to think of a new design for that.

From Jill_rg's Journal

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ.
Severe WTF-ery starts on like page 123 in the rightly named chapter "Unexpected". And it seems to get weirder... Not sure what else to say...

I think I'll post my thoughts on the book at some point in the future. Now I will go to sleep... or read... (probably read).
The Wireless Internet is back! I am happy.

And the icons are so done. But I've been really lazy so I haven't put them on photobucket yet. Soon though.

From the Yahoo News Desk

"Among the latest skits, it was host Tina Fey's return to her old Weekend Update anchor desk that set the buzz afire. She took up the cause of Hillary Clinton and unleashed an inappropriate-for-family-media slogan, in effect "(Being a Formidable Woman) is the New Black." Her in-your-face defense catapulted Fey into the top 3,000 searches, got her video embedded in blogs across the nation, and garnered the "30 Rock" star more searches than the current SNL cast combined.

(Emphasis mine)

Yes, because SNL has always been a family friendly show. *Eye roll*

And by the way, the quote is "Bitch is the new black."

Whole story here

Note to self: make some Pro-Hillary lj icons using SNL quotes. Yes it's possible.

I got the Sweet Far Thing this Saturday. I'm like, half way through already! I also picked up Kitchen Princess 1 & 2 so I don't have to buy them.  Yay!

I so need to get a job soon. Everything I like/ want to do is so expensive. :P


Still waiting for library to get The Sweet Far Thing.
