My story didn’t really turn out how I planned it would, actually I didn’t plan at all to be honest. This year we were pretty busy and I didn’t have enough time to plan in October. So when November started, I rushed into the story. By the time I was halfway through the month I realized my story made no sense, but It was too late to start over. I think that my story had a great concept, but I didn’t plan enough to make my story turn out great. I will probably rewrite the story sometime next year.

Overall I had a lot of fun testing my writing abilities. The story I wrote was in a different style. It was in verse, meaning that each chapter was in poetry. I really loved getting to know my character. I can’t wait to try again to craft her story.

What I have been working on

 Welcome back to my blog!

Today I am going to share some mini animations I’ve been working on! Also I will hopefully post my. Blue Sky tag answers tomorrow! Let’s get started!

Here is the first one I made! I really Love it!


This is another one I made! I really love how it turned out!


On YouTube I have seen a lot of these animated memes where the character makes different expressions to the music 🎶 I decided o try that out here! 

This is my favorite one! It’s so SMOL and beautiful!


Did you like my animations? Which one was your favorite? Are you interested in animating?


Story Time; The Tale of an Older Sister

Story time one

Heyo and welcome back to my blog.

Most people think that being older means you’re in charge. But reality proves otherwise.

How do I know this? Becuase I’m am the oldest. And my siblings are always bossing me around. Especially my baby sister.

I’m going to share with how it’s like to be the oldest.

( if this is weird then I’m sorry. I was trying something new. So um yeah)

First of all little kids are cute and can get away with everything. Older kids come off to be moody. Becuase older kids don’t have the power of cuteness.

Little Kid: Mommy can I get a new toy? *gives you puppy dog eyes and smiles*

Mom: Awww of course sweetie.

Me: Mom can I please get a computer?

Mom: Not right now.

Me: But mom I need one!

Mom: We already got you an iPad mini. Plus we have tons of computers at home.

Me: I need my OWN SO I CAN BLOG IN PEACE WITHOUT MY SIBLINGS FORCING ME TO GET OFF!!!!!!

Mom: *does that mom frown that makes you want to melt*

Me: *feels kind of bad and embarrassed that I yelled in the middle of the store* You just don’t understand
Alright, another thing about being the oldest is that whenever you do something everyone else wants to do it too. ( Quick note, I will be calling my siblings A, E, and J)

Example

Me: Mommy can I use the computer?

Mom: Sure. Just make sure you don’t stay watch to many YouTube videos.

Me; Thanks! *starts to use computer*

J: Mommy how come Ava gets to use the computer?!

Mom: It’s J’s turn!

Me: * internally screams: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO*

J: *Comes over and smiles mischievously* Ava it’s my turn. Ava it’s my turn. * he keeps saying that over and over again*

Me: Wait I’m almost done saving my post!

J: *keeps repeating it*

2 minutes later my post I worked on for days is deleted.

That is a true story.  I’m crying right now. *takes a deep breath*

Even though being an older sister can be a little rough always remember that being an older sister is BOSS!

And if you’re not an older sister you are still Boss!

So yeah, I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post!


Did you enjoy this post? What’s your favorite thing and least favorite thing about being the oldest? 


Writing Wednesdays: Characters

Writing.png

img_3664-2 and Welcome back to my blog!

I’m going to talk about how to make your story characters really come to life! Lets get started.

1. Talk to your characters;

Talking to your characters may sound weird, but it really works! I talk to my characters all the time. Its fun and helps inspire you!

2. Pretend to be your character:

Try to talk in your characters voice. Live as if you were a certain character. Ask your siblings or friends if you can role-play, you can even role-play by yourself. Develop your characters style.

3. Interview your character;

Ask your character questions. Or let someone else ask your character questions

4. Pay attention to the people around you;

Look around everyday at people near by. Sometimes I even look at strangers and see what they are doing, that helps me develop a character and a story.

5. Be creative!

Being creative is not hard. Creative is scribbling random words onto a piece of paper. Creative is you writing a small poem. Creative is you having fun and trying to write! Have fun and don’t worry about messing up. Their is no wrong way to write! Everyone  has their own style. Be yourself and have fun!

Story Idea?

Millie had never seen the sunlight…

It was always dark and the weather was harsh.

Billowing winds, stormy nights. Fear. Loneliness. Sadness.

She grimaced and kicked at the gray sand. Everything was horrid. It was all her fault. She was different from the other Astracals. She was strange… She could read minds…
