Shiftyeyes is one word!

Ah, well. Just arrived home from my grandparents' house. -sigh- Actually, it wasn't bad. I watched Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, started the book, started watching Princess Mononoka, finished my design for a new character, Miya... I would say it was a pretty productive day overall.
I just haven't been working on my story lately, and I feel kinda guilty about it. I cannot forget Erica and Timmy for this new story!

So, hey, I've been thinking about writing the profiles of some of my regular OCs here? Would anyone be interested in that? I'm still mulling it over, most of my characters don't have the most colourful pasts.... Well, except Timmy. I've worked really hard on his past... Heh, I wrote his POV of part of my story a few weeks ago. It was exhilarating! I love working with Timothy, I really do. He has an interesting way of thinking... I really should work with him more... I actually find Erica a little dull at times, but I think that's just me... Like Wm. Kennedy said, “Everyone is interesting except the narrator in a first-person story." Erica is my narrator. I'm kind of starting to resent writing in first-person... Maybe it's because I've been doing it all my life, it's getting old.

Another quote about writing I really like: "The simpler you say it, the more eloquent it is." - AUGUST WILSON ...Some really good advice there.


How did you get here and when did it start?
An innocent child with a thorn in his heart...

I just heard this song for the first time today, and it is already burrowing itself into my heart. Thank you so much for posting this on your blog, Zeni (if you read this). I am most definitely going to try to put some of my writing to this group.

How annoying. When I want it to type in Japanese, my computer refuses! But as soon as I'm writing something in English, it starts typing it in Japanese! That says Konnichiwa, by the way. Figured I should use it while it let me. ;)

I'd be interested in it =) I like your chars, they are more interesting then mine in my opinion. Konnichiwa!

Hmm, I dunno about that. Most of them are just regular high school students... Except for Aesa and Aldrik (who are adults and and vamps), and Erica and Timmy (who aren't exactly totally mentally healthy. They're not crazy! Just... Off. 'Specially Erica. Poor Erica...)
And I don't know, I really like Rayne. He's pretty dern interesting. But yeah, I'll try to put something together sometime...

Yeah, but if you take away his vampire/werewolf-ness hes sort of normal......

Mmm, true... Well, you could always work on giving him more depth. ;)
