Firestorm Logic
Marriage is a funny thing. I have never known the marriage that is fantasized by every couple. For me, marriage has always been an agreement between two individuals to live under a single roof. One complains, one takes it lying down; they both fight like mortal enemies. Wedding photos make me sick. I see a couple, a smiling, laughing couple who cannot wait to share each other's lives. Their only thought is of the love for their partner. That soft, downy feeling, burning hot on occasion, that will never leave. Marriage has always been conflict, violent like a firestorm, burning deeper than any flame. Both of them try to outdo the other. "I ta

Ants marched unceasingly in an orderly line through the underbrush like a tiny army journeying grimly to the battlefield.

Knowing Your Character
In a story—whether it be told on stage, on screen, or in print—knowing your main characters inside and out helps create a well rounded and interesting plot. It also makes writing them easier too. In this guide, a companion to To Create a Character, I'll attempt to help put skin and flesh on the bare bones of a character, to create "character," and to discover things about them that you—the creator—never knew. Exercise 1: Interviews One of my favorite ways to get to know my character is to interview them as one would a celebrity. The interview can be general, just asking about their life, likes, pet peeves, etc. or it can

Broken Promise
"Promise me, Alex. Swear on Ian's grave that you'll return. You'll come home." Jack Starbright was normally the very image of optimism. Her fiery red curls often framed her round, boyish face, lips curled in a genuine smile that could be a beacon in even the darkest night. Bright colors surrounded this woman and she strived to see the best in everyone. The latter had become increasingly hard. She held his gaze, daring him to make the vow she'd set. No small amount of sadness and defeat were evident in his unnaturally steady eyes. It was with tentative pity he spoke. "I'll promise. Just for you, Jack, I'll promise." Alex turned for the do

Dream of Freedom
What do we all have in common? The one universal freedom? Think It disregards our race, Our religion, Or our home. What is mutual to all? If I were old, And you were young What would we share? Our ankles may be bound by chains, Or our hearts as free as birds, Tell me What is a part of everyone? I'll tell you: Our Freedom to Dream, And our Dream of Freedom.

Bystander
When I stand by and watch It makes me hate myself deeply. You, like I used to, don't know what they're really doing. I see you in classes in the Special Ed Hallway And I know you're a nice guy, But I'm a coward, A bystander, A hypocrite. When they laugh you think it's a joke, Like I used to. But like my past self, You do not yet realize they are bullies. To the bystanders: Don't be me.

I Don't Understand
The thing is, I don't understand. I know I'm different, until now I embraced my uniqueness. When you laughed, I assumed it was a joke. Well I thought wrong. The thing is, I don't understand. Sure I don't like what's popular, sure I skip around school, sure I carry my school supplies in a bag, sure I'm afraid of people, sure I take classes in the Special Ed Hallway, sure I read and write more often than I talk, sure I visit the emotions counselor, but when you said hello in that condescending way, I never knew you were mocking me. I just don't understand. We take classes together, I "helped" you with your homework, I laughed

To Create a Character
Are you starting a story? Do you have an incomplete, flawed, or no character at all? It's happened to me many times and in my struggles to perfect my creations, I have learned a few things. I present you with seven easy steps with a challenge each to get you thinking. Grab a piece of paper and a pencil. Let's start… Step 1: Past When creating a character, you must first establish a past. Even a person with amnesia has a past, they just don't remember it. Pasts are important, they show what shaped the person and why they are the way they are today. If your character has a scar, why? If they have amnesia, why? If they have a phobia of

In which I hopefully start to do something.
Ever since I discovered AMVs (anime music videos) in 2008, I have wanted to make one. Two. As many as I could. Like everything else I do I didn't just want to make AMVs, I wanted to create masterpieces. I still do. Many things have held me back in my life. Fears, doubts, lack of empowered thought. It sounds silly to some people, but this is something I want to do. I want to be myself. I don't want to be a cookie-cutter Christian for my family, an awkward sister for my friends, and a puppet for my parents. I want to be Nina. That curious girl that always has her nose stuck in a book. Nina spends copious amounts of time online. Nina will lear

Finally all the messages are gone!
I finally, finally, finally replied/deleted/read/favorited/etc. all the messages in my inbox! It's so clean and beautiful! But... I feel a smidgen bereft. It's like there is a small piece of my heart missing. I need more messages. (On a side note, I downloaded this awesome extension for Google Chrome called deviantAnywhere that alerts me when I have new messages on dA even if I'm not logged in. :D) :thumb267375057: I love thumbs. And Ling Yao (the guy on this journal skin). And I love journal skins. :XD:
