Ten Things to Write

SPOILER ALERT!!! XD

SPOILER ALERT!!! XD

Yes– another list.  Ah well, lists are fun.

Here are ten things that I want to accomplish (and have accomplished) as a writer:

1.  Write an entire short story in future tense.

2. Write a story about someone transgender. (I even posted this one, that’s

Non-Sequitor One: Unfixable)

3.  Co-write a story (if you wanna help with this one, comment!!!).

4. Write an epic.

5. ACTUALLY complete a graphic novel.

6. Write a book that’s at least 200 pages long (I seem to lose interest at around 140 or so).

7. Illustrate someone else’s book.

8. Build a book like a town, populate it, make some drama, and KILL OFF NEARLY EVERYONE!!! (to help stress)

9. Write a holy text or a collection of myths for an invented religion.

10. Finish this list.

If you want to help out with any of the above, especially the co-writing or illustrating stuff, (keep in mind that I’m twelve, though 😉 ), then comment! 😀

Yay!

A Sort of Review | A Letter to Momo

Since I went to a Japan center, I obviously have a lot of new stuff.

Two exciting things I got were two Yokai movies:

A Letter to Momo and The Great Yokai War.

Of course, I had to watch them.  I choose A Letter to Momo first.  As much as I like strange special effects and master-less samurai with goopy orange blood, a simple illustration of three anime-like yokai and a teenage girl immediately drew my attention.

I watched it just now.

The art was like that of Studio Ghibli.

Does the picture show up?

Does the picture show up?

See?  Or not?  Sorry if the pictures didn’t work…

The animation, however, was kind of crappy.  The vehicles tended to jerk a lot when they moved, but the characters didn’t do so as much.

And the characters were great!!!  I was laughing for most of the yokai scenes.  The three ‘goblins’, a frog man, a oni-like giant, and a snake-monkey, were spot-on.

The plot was well-driven and engaging, other than the ending, which was a little too long for my attention span.  You could really feel the characters struggles, especially the tension, frustration, and suspense.

It was really amazing!  One thing that I look for in monster films is the quality of the yokai.  Are they interesting, wild, and cool-looking?  Do they have stories?  Do I recognize some of them from legends?  And these yokai were very good, according to me.

Well, some people may be disturbed by one thing: the fart humor.  It wasn’t very subtle, but there wasn’t much of it, either.  Little things like:

“Frogs are lame.  Plus their talking sounds like farts.”

Or:

“Do your secret attack!”

“*farts*”

Eh.  That’s yokai for you.

I wouldn’t recommend it if you haven’t been introduced to yokai culture and the Shinto religion, but you’d still ‘get’ it.

So yeah!

Pretty cool.

Did the pictures work?  If not, then 😦 .  If they did, I’ll upload more! 🙂

Huh?

Huh?

Yay!

Hmmm.  More reviews, photo stories, and other fun stuff soon!

Probably soon.  Is it okay that I posted twice in one day?  That always seemed like a weird taboo to me.  Ah well, plenty of people do it. 😐

So yeah!  Maybe you’ll get to see some of the other cool stuff I got!

Like candy… and daiso junk…  and a no-face plush from Spirited Away

Okay!
