My Week! 6/23/12 - 6/29/12

Here's my week with pics!

I'm absolutely addicted to this song, Paparazzi by Girls' Generation!

Yeah, Merlin eating with chopsticks??? I think the people doing the Kingdom Hearts Manga got a little bit lazy... -_-'

As someone who has PTSD, I am one hundred percent behind this organization!

Joined deviantART as llobrien13! Found this amazing pic and it's now the cover for Once Upon a Time by LA Knight!

It's Nuada in Exile by LeafOfSteel! Go here to see the rest of her work!

Saw The Legend of Korra season 1 finale! One word: EPIC!!!!!

That was my week! Hope yours was awesome too!

My week! 6/16/12 - 6/22/12


So Michelle Phan does this thing on her website every Friday where she shows pics of her week, then asks how our week went. And I decided why not? :)

So here's my week's pics (not very many, but I'm not very good with cameras):

Saturday I headed up to the Mesa Temple! On the way back we drove this insane sandstorm blanketing from the edge of Phoenix all the way to Picacho Peak!:

Monday I finally got the info I needed in order to finish Warrior: ch. 13 - Weapon, and I needed to do this first!:

Then Tuesday, I went to see John Carter again with my girls! Gave us all inspiration for our books!

Thursday, met up with my girls again to watch this:

(Yes, I'm a nerd)

And edit chapter 13 and this:

(My phone camera was the only one that could take this, and it sucks, sorry!)

Today, I chilled with my mom and brother, as well as be followed around by my manic cat who refused to let me out of his sight! He's so cute!:

That was my week!

How was yours?

The Writing World

Okay, I haven't done this since I've moved off of MySpace a couple years ago, but I really wanted to explain this. Now, I've written before about books that have been published, but needed extra editing. Now, some books, like the Chronicles of Narnia are good enough on something like, the plot, the morals behind it, the characterization, that things like, the voice and how the books reads, are okay with being really sucky! But, now-a-days, there are so many GREAT authors and writers that things like that should probably never happen.

One book that I really do like quite a lot is one of these. But it's lacking in several areas. This book is Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. Now, I bought it for one reason, the main guy at the beginning is awesome. When he talks to the main character Jessica, he tells her something that EVERY teenage girl needs to know, as well as plenty of women. But the character's are really flawed, it's kinda cheesy in a LOT of points, important moments are glossed over, the voice is weak, and all around, it's a rather lame book. But the story could be a good one if taken to that level. Sadly, it's not.

So yeah, I recommend giving it a read, because it can be quite good if you ignore everything and let your imagination take you where the book should have gone.

But it's rather disappointing that something like this is published, with a sequel. I mean, L.A. Knight is a MILLION times better than most of the books that I pick up, and often those books are from people who've been writing for 10 years or more.

Just wanted to rant about this, and clear the air on my feelings for this book.

~Another Update!~

So, I'm sorry that 13 is STILL not done, I had to come up with the most random thing, the Ardmenian Crest! I did a basic little version, then I did one that's like, 3 pages arranged into a square. It took 2 days, but I still haven't designed what I need to, which is the girls' outfits. It's a LOT simplier than the knights, which is why I had to draw a little crest. So, to tide you over until 13 is up, here's the two pics I've worked hard on.

That's the Ardmenian Crest, then the Ardmen uniform. I can't do heads to save my life, but that's what Nivan's been wearing for the past few chaps.

Don't copy and paste please!
