Eleven More Facts About Moi

1) I play Magic the Gathering.

2) I also play Dungeons and Dragons.

3) I’m a fan of The Joker Blogs.

4) I’m working on a serial that will (rather soon) make its debut appearance here at FBN.

5) I have Slytherin Pride.

6) Final Fantasy VII was my first RPG.

7) The Game Gear was my first game system.

8) I grew up on the Sony PlayStation.

9) I make anime music videos for fun. (Feel free to peruse my youtube page. Warning: some of them suck.)

10) I am a troper.

11) Moose Tracks and Mint Chocolate Chip are my favorite flavors of ice cream.

Questions That Need Answering

1) How often do you come up with new ideas for writing?

Fairly often. Music is an excellent source of inspiration, in my opinion.

2) On a good day, how many words can you manage to write before collapsing?

I don’t have time to write till I drop during the semester, unfortunately. But, during NaNo, I could do around 2-4, sometimes 5,000 words, a day.

3) What is your preferred genre, both in reading and writing?

Fantasy of all sorts.

4) If you’re a plotter, how long do you plot before you start a big project?

I’d estimate around 2-3 months of figuring out characters, motivations, the story, charrie arcs, and whatever else. Mostly this is due to me having to work around school things that need doing.

5) Do you prefer sweet or salty food?

Umm…well…Sweet above all. But, I do so much enjoy salt and vinegar potato chips…

6) What are your biggest talents other than writing?

I can make good tekteks? Does that count?

7) Is there anything you live by when it comes to writing? What?

Yep. Always write it down lest you forget it. There was some epic dialogue I thought of once in the shower, and I never wrote it down when I got out. Cue me trying to remember how it went. What I came up with later is nowhere near as awesome as the original incarnation.

8) Of the last, say, ten books you read, which did you like best and why?

The first Wheel of Time book was pretty good. Nice set up and whatnot.

9) Around how many books are on your to-read list right now?

Ergh. Um. A lot. Seriously, loads.

10) What is your favourite book-to-film adaptation?

The Harry Potter movies.

11)How often do you listen to music while writing?

All the time. I never leave home without a portable music player. And headphones, one must never forgot headphones.

Questions To Be Answered

1) Do you have a favorite 80s band?

2) Which Doctor Who doctor is your favorite?

3) What is your favorite brand of chocolate?

4) You’re face to face with Voldemort! What do you do?

5) Do you have a favorite fantasy author?

6) What do you do to procrastinate on writing?

7) Do you play online games? Which one(s)?

8) What is your personal theme song?

9) How do you like your pizza?

10) Do you have a favorite Vocaloid?

11) What is your favorite Alan Rickman movie?

Hey, you! Yes, you with the face!

Good News, Everyone!

Okay, first things first. Since I was naughty and didn’t post one last week, I’ve got your writing prompt here. I was listening to the radio, and a rather hokey song came on that I am too lazy to go look up, but one of the lyrics has kept bouncing around my head.

“On the upside of a downward spiral.”

What caused the downward spiral? What is the upside to it? Where will it all lead? You lot out there, go write and find out!

Now, with our regular Wednesday wild and crazy out of the way, I’ve got awesome things to tell. Firstly, the new browser mmo Sword Girls is out in open beta! Seriously, you need to play this game, it’s crazy fun. Personally, I chose the Darklore starter deck, if only because it sounds a lot like playing aggro black in Magic. Second, Script Frenzy. Ever heard of it? It’s a bit like NaNoWriMo, but for script writing, and instead of word count, you’ve got page count. 100 pages, to be exact. And, I might be doing this bad boy twice at once. Wait, that made no sense, did it? To clarify, I intend to write two 100-page-each scripts at once. Can I do it? Hopefully. Thirdly, and lastly, let’s talk webcomics! Specifically, let’s talk about the webcomic I’m going to be doing with a good friend of mine. Hence the double-dose of Screnzy I will be having.

The comic is titled Angelic Crisis, and features a vast array of wild and crazy people. The main plot follows a rather villainous Faerie and the angel he serves as the angel orchestrates a plot to take over the universe and rewrite it in the image of pure chaos. Opposing him are the forces of order, eventually led by another Faerie, and Villain!Faerie’s rival of sorts. I will very likely post more details soon, so hopefully this little bit of a teaser is tantalizing enough for ya. =]

Writing Prompt: Tropes, everyone needs them!

It’s Wednesday, and we all know what that means! New prompt! What shall it be today…*strokes evil beard*

Honestly, I didn’t have any ideas, but I do now. Go to TVTropes. Yes, it is a black hole from which time is sucked in quicker than you can say “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”, but go anyway. At the top of the home page, under the search box, is a little blue button that says RANDOM. Click it. Write something based off the first trope that pops up.

Writing Prompt: Movie Quotes

I realize I’m a bit late for this, but oh well. This week, the challenge is to take a favorite line from a movie and write a short piece using the line.

You can blame my creative writing class for this one. 🙂
