I tried to draw some colorful gems. I got quite frustrated with them. Also, I have added a white gel pen to my shopping list. Making indents in the paper with a closed retractable pen does not work as well as one might like for making extra shininess.
|This one, I just reserved a spot for the highlight. It didn't work very well.|
Not much art this past week, I'm afraid, although I did get a few of my several half-done books finished. (Reading, not writing haha) But, speaking of writing, I did enter my very first short story contest. It's a back-to-school-themed thing on Wattpad, hosted by Lenovo. But I thought maybe you'd like to read it. So, here it is. Yay! Lots of scariness.
In case you'd like some random odd facts about "Tadpoles"...
- It was born Tuesday, November 3, 2015, at 12:09 a.m. (I know this because it was a middle-of-the-night brat that I scribbled down in my strange ideas/free-writes/unloading-writing-feelings journal. Haha. I don't know if I'm feeding the monster or helping it to be calmer by letting these things out onto pages; but it does seem to help my sanity the tiniest bit. Kind of like sticking things in the closet or attic or something. Out of sight, out of mind, but you know you can go look at it and pull it out if you ever want to.)
- It is the first thing I have ever published on Wattpad. (I'm still kind of new to the site as far as using it goes, so I hope I did all right.)
- While editing, I had a friend from art school read it over email and point out where I could add more words, to bring the count up to within the requirements for the contest and fill the story out. (I tend to write sparingly, I think.)
