In which I vlog a little about characterization in writing and what tips and tricks you might use to help you write a well-rounded character for a new channel called WriteAwayVlog.
Sometimes I like to play around with stopmotion animation since I actually don’t have a video.
A robotic baby seal throws better free throws than Shaquille O’Neal.
It’s been a long time since White-Harp’s reviewed any books for you via vlog. So here’s a video review for you! A twofer, as she touches a bit on THE DEMON’S COVENANT as well as THE DEMON’S LEXICON. The truth is we meant to get this online for you in time for the ARC contest Sarah Rees Brennan ran, but White-Harp thought sleeping in bed was preferable to shooting while I thought reading my brains […]
Because I am sappy and because I have the most adorable Teddy Bear in the world who needs to be told he’s loved with similar levels of cuteness. I love you, Teddy Bear.
You all want to see a video of Cap’n Sweet Valley, no? You know you all do. Because he’s really adorable. He plays “Stoneage Literary Agent”. He’s a show stealer, that one. You’ve all seen WeBook, of course. You haven’t? Then why are you waiting?
Remember this video White-Harp made for Maggie Stiefvater SHIVER? (more…)
Remember when I said when I’m supposed to be doing something creative, I procrastinate by doing other creative things? (In this case, I am avoiding the most tedious parts of digital artwork: “inking” in Photoshop.) This is a project in abject narcissism and procrastination. Over 300 photographs taken with Photobooth over the period of one month as I avoided working on my novel, working on art commissions, or just plain working. White-Harp makes appearances, of […]
I’ve actually been fairly good about working these past few days (just got the soundtrack for Battlestar Galactica—what?), but a while back, in a fit of huge procrastination, White-Harp and I indulged in a little silliness. I loves my White-Harp, I do.
So when I said I don’t want to be an animator anymore…I might have been lying. I discovered this great programme for Mac called Pencil and it may be the most awesome piece of software in the world (except for Scrivener, the greatest writing tool in all of existence). To prove my point, I made a little animation last night in under 10 minutes. 96 frames in under 10 minutes. That is GENIUS. Granted, 96 […]
I used to want to be an animator. NOT ANYMORE. No wonder traditional handdrawn animation became passé. Even drawing the scant 25 frames in here almost drove me batshit insane. I procrastinate a lot. I often procrastinate from doing creative things by…making other creative things. In this case, I’m trying not to look at the flaws Scrivener keeps pointing out in my manuscript. Mostly I’ve been inspired by Maggie Stiefvater who, in addition to being […]
