Day 390 – School and ideas

Tuesday, March 21st 2017

Today was alright.

I had art first. We continued learning watercolour techniques.

English followed and we started Lord of the Flies.

At lunch I ate with my close friend and we talked about shows.

Psychology was next and we continued working on our project. Since it’s related to criminals, I did a whole bunch of research on Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, Richard Ramirez and Jeffrey Dahmer. I have to explain how environment growing up can lead to criminal behavior, and they all had pretty bad childhoods.

Last period I had French. We started our next book.

At home I moderated the server a tiny bit, ate pancakes for supper, played Town of Salem with one of the owners and watched a Supernatural and A Series of Unfortunate Events episode. I enjoy how one second Count Olaf is incredibly funny and the type of character I’d like to spend time with, then the next he reminds me of how terrifying he can be. 

I have a cool idea for a book and I’m currently shaping a character inspired a bit by Count Olaf, and trying to figure out the storyline. The type of narration I want for this book is gonna be challenging. I don’t want to say too much about it, for several reasons, although I can say that I have to do a lot of research and planning beforehand, then carefully pick out every word I write. Yes, authors already have to do that, but one tiny wrong word can destroy the whole image. But I really, really like the idea and want to write a proper work of fiction. 

I have to finish the book I’m already working on with Megg first though. I plan on continuing drawing and writing soon. I’ve just been exhausted cause of getting back into the school schedule.

That’s all for today.

One thought on “Day 390 – School and ideas”

  1. Hey Obs, saw your comment. I actually deleted around 50% of my post from last night. You remember that part where the post said: “For example right now I’ve written 731 words,” if you use a word counter, there’s actually only 283 words… How mysterious…. 😛

    It was all work related stuff I figured would’ve been better private than published, at least for right now. Regarding the game, it can be worked on later, like the post says. Hopefully we can work on it together as well when that time comes.

    Good luck on this other book you’re working on 🙂
