Future in Writing

Yeah, I don’t know either.

So the last time I wrote something that could be classified as “fanfiction,” I was probably 10.  It was some weird Powerpuff Girls meets Little Red Riding Hood piece that only made sense in a 10-year-old logic kind of way.  Also drew plenty of fanart – pretty sure I still have some of it logged away somewhere.

Now, the last time I actually wrote period – it’s probably been a few years now?  I’ve been telling myself to get back into at some point, I keep coming up with all these ideas – and then I never do anything with them (unless they have something to do with I Draw Walruses).  Like, it’s November, so it’s National Novel Writing Month.   Told myself this is the year.  Aaaaaaand nothing.  Nada.  No novel.

No writing.

And then I fell down a rabbit hole into the world of Danganronpa this past week.

No idea why.  I had some vague idea of what it was – teenagers trapped in a school being forced into some warped killing game – but like, I think I was watching some random video that featured it and decided to look further into it.

And here we are.  I actually sat down and wrote a piece of fanfiction featuring my new favorite character, Gonta Gokuhara (Drew’s fixating on a fictional character again whaaaaat).  Who really needed a new ending because I didn’t like the canon one.  So I wrote one.

It’s not bad, but I can definitely tell, I’m rusty.  But it’s not bad.

And now I have more ideas for Danganronpa fanfiction.

I guess what I needed to write again was a video game about teens killing each other.

I don’t know either.

 

Witchtober, Day 1 – Candle

A few flames chase the darkness away.

Yes folks, it is that time of year again.

Inktober is upon us, and with that the hope that I will be drawing (almost) every day for the entire month.

Like last year, I have eschewed the “Official” Inktober list and will be following someone else’s.  This year, it’ll be Aria Illustration’s Witchtober, an entire list of witchy related prompts.

This should probably surprise a grand total of no one that this is the list that caught my eye.

With that said, let the drawing commence!

Get Gone Summer

Bring it on, Autumn!

This feels like it should be the rule, right?

The moment September hits, we get to say, “Sorry, Summer.  But it’s time to go.”

‘Cause I’m ready for Autumn.

The cold.  The colors.  The holidays.  Sweater season.

The thing is, in my part of the country, Autumn doesn’t actually settle in until mid-October.  So we’ll be dealing with Summer or something like Summer for a bit longer.

Which is annoying.

Guess I’ll just have to wait it out.

In the Neighborhood

‘Tis a silly place.

I need to actually map out where everything is in this universe.

Not everyone lives in the immediate neighborhood – Cleo and most of the Paw Pioneers, for example.  And the mermaids, of course.  Unless they had a saltwater swimming pool.

Also pretty sure the Seasons live somewhere else, but they just like to hang around.  Especially Spring and Summer.

Little Beans

Look at these little beans!

And we’re back!

Sorry about the brief break.  A delightful mix of overthinking things/lack of ideas/general laziness decided to settle in with the new year.

So I decided to get back into the drawing game with Pokemon.  And these three little guys have gotten really popular in that community, and I do think they’re adorable.

So here we are – Spike the Pincurchin, Fred the Snom, and Pooka the Pyukumuku.  I don’t really do fanart, but this was fun.  Might do it again in the future.
