I want to stretch my artistic skills and learn to draw things I've never done before. If you like my work or have a request, I'd appreciate a point or two! I'm working toward hopefully getting a premium account here, so every little bit helps. In return, you get a FREE LLAMA!!! And if you have a request, of course you'll get a drawing as well. :)

Journal History

Lately I've been so busy with school and life in general that I've forgotten to make time to write. Writing stories and poetry is one of my favorite ways to unwind, and with life being the stressful hell that it is, being too busy to write is really a problem. So I'm trying to overcome this by writing a bit every day. To do this, I've created a writing exercise for myself that I can do in 20-30 minutes, so I can make time every day. That way, it's limited so I won't feel like I don't have the time to do it.

Basically, I've created some rules for myself to write with. Twenty minutes of writing, with five minutes to plan ahead of time. No research allowed, since I often get caught up in researching every detail. I've got a list of 20 random genres of fiction that I'll choose from randomly with a roll of a die, to make myself more experienced in styles that I don't normally use. 5 characters minimum in a story. And every day, I'll look up the "Word of the Day" on Merriam-Webster's website and I have to incorporate that word somewhere in the story. 

Today, the genre was "Fairy Tale." I've never written a fairy tale before, so it was quite an adventure trying to come up with something suitable. And the word of the day was "gritty." Not a word that's usually found in fairy tales. It took some creative wording to pull it off, but I think it turned out all right. If you want to read my fairy tale, it's posted over at my wordpress blog at mpricebooks.wordpress.com/

If you read it, let me know what you think! I always enjoy getting feedback on any of my work. 

I hope all of you are having a less stressful time than I am. I'll try to be on here more often, but with life being crazy and all, I'm not sure I can make any promises. Anyways, I'll talk to you guys later!

Yo! I’m a junior in college. I’m a writer first and foremost, mostly fiction stories with a healthy sprinkling of poetry. I’ve always been creative, and I’m that kid who covered his binders with drawings in grade school. People tell me I’m good, something I don’t always believe, but I’ll let you be the judge of that! I mostly work in pen and ink (Sharpies for color) or digital media, but I sometimes diverge into acrylic, charcoal, and even woodworking lately. Music is my passion, and I often turn my songs and poetry into visual art, so don’t be surprised if there are some random lyric-based images as well. My best friend from high school and I had a video podcast a while back, so I will upload some pics and art we used in that as well (and some that we never really got around to using!). I will also be posting rough sketches of characters in my fiction that I use to give myself a better mental image as I write, so you can see the “making of” behind my stories. I’m always looking for ways to exercise and grow my talents, so if you have any cool ideas of things I should draw, hit me up! I also have a page on NoiseTrade where you can download my music for free, so check it out!
