Kicking off with a video this week because it's worth your time:
And you should go watch the other three parts as well because they're all very interesting.
Onward then. I'm taking a break from writing to play Hotel Dusk: Room 215 because the story just got very interesting. I'll let you know when I feel like playing on dA again I tend to get rather wrapped up in my games, and visual novels are becoming something similar to cocaine for me. The last one I played, 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors was fantastic and I spent several days trying to wrap my head around the ending. I'm hoping Hotel Dusk leaves me with similar feelings of satisfaction.
So I'm sure some of you noticed the poll, and I promised details I always give my room a good cleaning at the end of every semester (or at least I try to), and I finally got around to gathering all the various notebooks I have lying around here. One of the books I found is from about nine months ago and is but a few pages short of being full. (The other nine are either used for class/ for when the current one is full, or are future books for my postal games.)
It's a bit of an anomaly among my writing notebooks because I was keeping it before I actually began filling things with writing proper as it were, but there's still a bunch of stuff in there that people like me might find interesting. That day to day grind sort of stuff I'd say about half the pages are covered in random doodles while the other half is split between lecture notes, unfinished letters, and actual creative writing that made it to dA.
Point is, the last giveaway got such a positive response that I'm willing to keep doing them as I fill up my notebooks. DNA-The-Authoress, the winner from last time seems to have enjoyed reading the first one, so that's encouraging If you want it, just leave a comment below!
Fair warning though - once you've won one notebook, that's it. If you'd rather hold off for one of my actual notebooks that isn't half full of crazy, then I'd pass on this one. This notebook has a lot more "journal"-ish features than future books will, but I know some people like that sort of aspect. The one I'm using now for instance is almost exclusively writing and doodles with the occasional note/ date reminder for class. It's a little over halfway full at the moment, but rest assured I'm working diligently just for you folks
