Writing 101 – Day Seven: Give and Take

(Written on 18. 9. 2014 for Dailypost’s Writing 101)

This time, it’s to write about a contrast between two things. And you know? The first thing that came to my mind was to write about darkness and light and somehow incorporate my usual rant about darkness being the same as evil and light being good, because you know, that’s a total bulshit. Yeah, sure, Light and darkness are opposites and all that, that’s true. They are balanced and one can’t really exist without the other, but they are vastly different. With darkness is usually associated destruction and chaos. While that may be, I like to think that there can be other things to darkness. And as for light, usually healing is a part of light and also anything white.

Well, on the other hand, what if there is no light and darkness, just shades of gray that sometimes can seem white and sometimes gray?

And as for the comparsion of light and darkness to good and evil, I hate when people do that, because I’m of the opinion that light and darkness are just elements. Two of the seven primary elements. Yes, now you’re going to argue with me that there are only four, but hey! I can bend the rules, that’s why it’s called fantasy! Anyone can do anything they want with it. It’s not facts! So, for me, the seven primary elements are light, darkness, fire, water, earth wind and lightning. Because you just cannot forget lightning.

And I feel like I’ve written something like this before. And several times…

With that said, I’ll end this post and see you with the next one.

Writing 101 – Day Five: Be Brief

(Written on 18. 9. 2014 for Dailypost’s Writing 101)

So I find a letter… What’s in it? Probably a conspiration theroy of some kind. I love those. and if I were to find a letter I would hope it would be some kind of a prediction of DOOM. As for returning it to the person adressed to, yeah, sure, I would, but only if they let me join in the conspiration theory! I want in!

So I would look and see who it’s adressed to and I would go there and I would threaten them to turn the letter to the police or burn it (it probably contains something of importance the theorist’s don’t want to lose) if they didn’t let me join in on the fun.

How’s that?

What would be in your letter and what would you do with it?

PS. Holy shit! This was written like… three months ago!

Three songs

(Written for Writing 101 on dailypost.wordpress.com on 18. 9. 2014)

So, what are the three songs that are most important to me? First, I need to say, that it would be three songs that are most important to me now, not of all time, because what I like to listen to keeps changing based on what I hear, see and many more factors.

And the three songs I like the most at this moment are: Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack – Redbone – Come and get your love. Next one is Sara Perche ti Amo and the last one is really tough because I don’t really know… It’s hard to decide between Nightwish’s Turn loose the mermaids and Limahl’s Never ending Story, but it would probably be the Neverending story.

So, why do I like Redbone – Come and get your love? Well, not too long ago, I saw the new movie Guardians of the Galaxy and there was this one scene that I loved, it was near the begining and Quil was dancing and this song was playing. Then I came home and I couldn’t get it out of my mind so a few days after that I started searching on youtube and I found it. So of course, me being me, I listened to it over and over again and couldn’t get myself to stop. It has really nice rythm and is great for dancing. And even though I hate dancing, this is the one song that gets even me moving.

Next song is Sara Perche ti Amo and I made it my goal to learn the lyrics. I’m making slow progress, but I think I have the first half down quite nicely. I don’t know why I love this song. I heard it somwhere and then there was a period of time when I was downloading anything and everything when it comes to music. So I downloaded a rar file from one website and one of the songs was this one. And somehow, I just started to listen to it more and more and soon it was one of my most favourite songs.

And the last one is Limahl’s Never Ending story. I saw all the movies and while they weren’t bad, I prefered the TV series. Series that I can’t find anywhere on the internet… Pitty… Well, but the thing is, I decided that I like the song and I even learned the text and was always singing along. As for the TV series, that was in the TV when I was around 13 or something. And I really loved it. I liked the idea of Atrei not being a boy but a man. And that it was really interconnected, the land from the book and the “real world”. Yes, in the later movies, this is too, but not so much as in the TV series. It was only one season they were screening, but I think there was actually season 2, just probably never made in czech… But I’m too lazy to actually deal with that… So I ditched it. I mean, who cares? I don’t. I just love it and would have liked to watch it again. But it’s nowhere to be found…

I would have loved to include my fourth most favourite song, but it says three so I will only talk about it very quickly. It’s Turn loose the mermaids from Nightwish and it is really great for if you want to sing along with them. Great lyrics and really beautifull melody. You just can’t not sing.

Okay, that’s it. I’m stopping now and will get on to the next excersise or something.

“Day two”: A room with a view

(Written on 20. 6. 2014)

 

So, again, a post related to the writing 101 on dailypost.wordpress.com. 

This time the task is to write about a place you want to be in. 

So, where would I want to go? 

That’s easy. The worlds I dream about. The worlds that center around the organization of DragonOrder I made up and it’s home-world. The ShadowRealm. The city of CrowHaven and the NightmareCastle. But alas, as this place only exists in my imagination, I cannot go there physically. On the other hand, I can retreat there anytime I want whenever and wherever I’m. 

I would like to tell you more about the DO, but I will not. that thing is my and mine only. And noone will ever know what exactly it is. I will give you something though. The organization’s main goal is to unify the time flow of every world there is, which is an impossible task seeing as there are new worlds created every second and some of them dissapear. 

However, a world is anchored once a time anchor is established. The only exception is when an alternative to an already existing world appears. When that happens and the DO’s agents enter, the previous one will vanish. 

 

However, to tell you more about the DO’s headquarters. Well, not really the castle that is the HQ, but the world. There are dragons there. The most endangered species. The Silver-eyes-black-dragons. More comonly known as silver eyes. 

There are not many of them left. However, they call the Shadow Realm their home and will help to defend it if needed.

 

What more do you want to know? I want to be there. 

It is the place of my dreams and maybe, I will be there one day, in some different life. I would like that. 

What do you think? Will I ever get there? 

I hope I will…

20 minute challenge

So,

I decided to do the writing 101 challenge on wordpress. The first thing is to write for 20 minutes straight. And not stop and just continue, which is exactly what I’m gonna do. The problem will be when I start making tyost and go… See? I just made a typo and it was in the word typo. And that’s the main problem. I write kinda fast and then I make mistakes and go back and delete and rewrite.

And that is the one thing I don’t want to do.

But sometimes, it just happens.

Today’s boring.

And I just want to look out of my window nad watch the clu… cloudy sky and the wind blowing in the tree I can see.

But that would be boring. It would be much ba… better to watch rain. But there is no rain and I want it.

Do you like rain? I love it. And when it’s raining, the possibib… possibility of me going out is much higher than when it is a sunny day.

And that just sucks.

Because then I would be going out just by mu- myself. And that is not fun.

I – I . I’m not much for going out, but when it rains, I really enjoy it.

And when it doesn’t, I prefer to be holed up in my room and do something or other.

Usually I just read stories on fanfiction and that is it. But sometimes, I write, draw or do some crafts. Lately, I also play Legend of Grimrock a lot and that is the best computer game I’ve played so far in my life. It is a dungeon crawler that is the “modern dungeon master”. Not that I played dungeon master. That one is not known to me. Well, I don knw- I do know it a bit, but I’ve never played it.

Also, Legend of Grimrock is better, because it has better graphics and dungeon master is really old. Though, for the time it was invented in, I guess it is kinda good… But I don’t like it. I prefer Grimrock.

Alsi- Also, I’ve read a story. It is called Teeth. You can find in- it on fi- fanfiction and it is under avengers and Harry Potter crossovers and it is great. But the one thing I cannot wrap my mind around is the fact that there i- is a gobnli- goblin and his name is Grimrock. And that is just! I don’t know… It seems wrong to name him after a game. Though I guess the author doesn’t know about the game. I wouldn’t know. I didn’t ask. But it would make sence.

Still, I just cannot wrap my mind around that little fact.

Other than that, the story is good.

By the way, do you like to listeh- listen to music when you write?

This old man I see almost every day just walked past my house again.

He looks weird. But I’m sure he’s perfectly normal old man.

But I wouldn’t know. I never talked to him.

Hey, the wind is picking up again! That’s good.

Hey… I need to stop using hey.

But I can’t stop. Not when I’m using it in this writing excersice. I need to go and look at the rest of them. And that is because i- this started on the second of june and now it is the 1- 20th of june and I’m behind. And I like writing challenges.

And this one sounds good. At least to me.

A a- caa- car went past my window. It was white. One of the cars I like is a mazda f3 in white. The one from … How is it called g- again? O h- Oh yeah! Inith- Inith- Initial D. And the car o- is from that.

My second favourite car would be the 1967 chevy impala from Supernatural and then the chefr- chevrolet cruz parked just around the corner from my house. That last one is my most favourite right now, but I doN¨t really know much about cars and that is why – What the hell I’m writing?

I don’t know… It is really hard to write in english weh- when you’re listening to czech songs. And I cannot even move the songs because that would be- mean stopping the writing and that is just a no-no.

So, the song is about the cinderella. The old czech one. The one in black and white. Not the disney one. I never a- saw that one. And I never will.. Disney old thing – things are just annoying. I do like some of the newer disney movies. Be it animated or live action. I got nothing against disney, just against the really old movies taht are- that are animated. And hey… A group of people visible from my vindow. One of them is en- doing something with t- a car and then the – there is a guy on a bycycle and he was going round and round. Waiting for a girl with a kid also on a bycycle.

And now there is a little girl or bof- boy? Hard to tell, too small a baby. Probably a boy. With parrents.

Adn – And a- I need to stop looking from my window or I will stop writign- writing. And I don’t want that.

Though, I’m running out of thing s- things to write.

Even though I -‘ —- I’m supposed to keep writing regardless. So, what do I wna- And I need to stop making these typos.

Good thing that I usually do go back a – and corrc- correct them. Or my posts would be a disaster. And it is not because my english is wobly. It is because I type sof a- so fast that the letters just go together wrong i- or in the wrong order. And that is just wrong.

So I guess I will slow down a bit. Because ti- it would be good to stop mai- making these typos.

I don’t like hem.

– them.

Whatever.

Did you ever want to fly? (E- Where did that come from?)

Nevermind. I did and still do. Using the wings of a dragon. But I’m not gonna tell you all about the bacground story for my nickname. That would be to confusing and I don’t want to tell anyone. Taht’- That’s just for me to know and nobody else

Maybe I tiw- It – it will come to be in the next life. I don¨t know but I would ki- like it.

Okay, let’s see if I can keep this typo free from now on. Only four mini- minutes left. And already I made a typo.

Whad – what designs do you prefer? Light colored or darker, ? Or colorfull? Or a specific color? I prefer dark ones because they are easier on eyes when working in the evening. And during the day? I o- don’t really care as long as it doesn’t blink too much. Too much blinking and glitter can be bad for one’s eyes.

And I would like to keke- keep my eyes intact.

So a shoutout to anyone who has blinking design, do something about it for the sake of the rest of us.

That is, if you want us to read it. If you don’t want us to read it, then make it even blinkier.

Does that word even make sence? I don’t thing so, but I guess you get the idea.

Two more minutes.

And the song is still the same… I hate th e- the song. And I wonder what will be the next one and if it will come before the time is up… I would like to write about it and I want to fit it in this post. But who knows if it will be possible… We will just have to wait and see. A-

And in the meantime keep writing.

Bu- Even though I really! don’t know what else to write.

Maybe that I woiuld really like it if it started to rain…

And the song is still pal- playing. Though… I guess it is comming to en – an end. Slowly, bus u- surely.

And it is only the last minute.

And the song will not be over d- till the time is up.

So wo- you will not know what the next one is. And I will not tell you.

And this said, I’m DONE.
