FJC, Day-28: Knowledge.

Hello and welcome to our February Journaling Challenge. A project hosted by Dolly and myself. Each day during February, we'll post a specifically selected prompt. The only rule: DO ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOU WANT WITH IT. You can do an art journal page, drawing, writing, doodling, poetry, fiction, whatever you want. Last, but not least, here's the prompt of the day:


********
And here's my outcome:
February Journaling Challenge, Day-28: Knowledge.

Do people really know, that they share knowledge? Or are those things leaving their mouth just plain data or simple information? What about gaining new knowledge? To leave your secure home waters and enter new territories? Maybe you don't like it there, but at least accept and maybe even understand it! Maybe you get unexpected new ideas, fresh inspiration or instructive discoveries. Who knows? Always thinking the same thoughts can impossibly lead you to something new, right? And what about networking? We call ourselves to live in a networking world? Are you able to combine old and new knowledge? Can you really do that?

And here's my outcome:
February Journaling Challenge, Day-27: Story Spinner.

My second thought on that prompt was, that I would like to skip it ... I considered it too similar to 'Once Upon A Time.' A short feedback from my challenge partner Dolly had changed my mind, because in her answer I'd found the inspiration to took those two words literally!

I designed my own Story Spinner. It has four categories, that every story could have:
  1. Hero (Prince, girl, cat, alien, vampire, robot, thief, elf)
  2. Place (A far country, under water, outer space, island, castle, virtual reality, in the sky, at home)
  3. Opponent (Dragon, knight, thief, robot, wolf, wizard, bookkeeper, worm)
  4. Magical object (book, feather, remote control, key, strands of hair, coin, shoe, treasure map)
By spinning you can always receive completely new combinations and completely new stories - hopefully! Well, now I'm stranded with a hero, who is a thief and has to fight against a bookkeeper in the sky, and his only help is a remote control! Good luck with that!

Once upon a time there was a thief...

And here's my outcome:
February Journaling Challenge, Day-26: On A Dark And Stormy Night.

First of all, this isn't my window and these aren't my curtains, but behind, that WAS a true sky outside of my living room window!

I wasn't in the mood of writing another fairy tale or a scary story to be told in front of a campfire. Unfortunately I don't have to tell a classical 'On a dark and stormy night' story with a personal touch ... at least no one that hadn't to be rated! Instead I wrote about a very personal dark and stormy time, that's why I used the blurs.

WQ-06. Writing Habits.

4 Comments


30 Days Of Writing Questions

06. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good old pen and paper?

Well, it all depends on what I'm writing.

On the one side there is my novel writing, which I do exclusively on the computer. I can type 10-finger-blind, which allows me to have my eyes on the screen, to write, reread and think at the same time. When I feel the need to an urgent research I have an instant access to the internet or else I can leave a virtual note in the text. Not to forget the advantage of spell verification and later editing. I even won't image to rewrite everything all over again, like in the historic times with pen and paper or good old type writer. Nostalgic? Yes! Convenient? Definitively No!
That's a picture of my little working corner in my living room. The desk is hand made by my grandfather. As you can see, I still have a monster of a monitor, but as long as the screen works fine for my eyes, there's no need for replacement! Maybe that's my personal way of 'Nostalgia'!

On the other side there is my dream diary, which is very personal for me. Therefore I use a more personal way of writing. I need the contact to paper in wonderful journals and a good, heavy writing pen in my hand. The pen I use was a present from my Mum. Writing in a real book allows me to illustrate or add some collectibles or tokens or whatever. I also want to have the possibility to keep my diary save in a drawer or take it with me, when I want to write somewhere else.

As you might have drawn the right conclusions, I use to write at home. Either on my computer for the novels or preferably on the couch for my dream diary. As I'm an owl I like to write on late evening hours or during the night.

If you like to read some more of my writing habits, feel free to continue with those two posts:

The only rule: DO ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOU WANT WITH IT. You can do an art journal page, drawing, writing, doodling, poetry, fiction, whatever you want. And here's the prompt of the day:

Do you welcome it? Do you fear it? Are you used to it? Have you gone through it? Or make it not about you. Make it about the world. About the life. About the universe. What will you change? What changes will you stop?

********
And here's my outcome:
February Journaling Challenge, Day-23: Change.

I became very philosophical on that prompt. I was pondering about all those changes, ourselves and our bodies, the time, our environment, the technique ... there my thoughts focused on my personal use or better non-use of Smartphones.
That kept me thinking of flexibility in connection with changes. A very interesting point, in my opinion. That every change, no matter how small or big, requires some extent of flexibility. Are we able and willing to be flexible enough for the changes? What if not? And is there a point, where stagnation is better than any change? I came to the conclusion 'yes', when change means regression. I left the question, if change is good or bad, unanswered, ... for now!

Wreck This Journal: Doodling On An Envelope.

Wreck This Journal: Pretend You Are Doodling On The Back Of An Envelope While On The Phone.

Whole title of that WTJ-page: "Pretend You Are Doodling On The Back Of An Envelope While On The Phone."

I used a real envelope and doodled all my way along with a fine black Stabilo pen. The patterns are inspired by Indian Mehndi Designs.

Without sounding pompous: I. LOVE. THIS. PAGE.!!!
Luckily I've already given away my 'favorite' page! *gg*

P.S. I've made this page long before my cover for the February Journaling Challenge!

Have you ever wondered what the world would like without colors? Or what if you couldn't see? Colors are not just decorations - they are very much a part of our world, our lives, our personality. How do you respond to them? How important are they to you?

********
And here's my outcome:
February Journaling Challenge, Day-22: Colours.
  • I am blue. The color of the sky. Width, endless number of possibilities, variety.
  • I am blue. The color of the ocean. Stillness, soft forward movements.
  • I am blue. The color of the kings. Royal, noble, many treasures.
  • I am blue. The color of the storm. Grand, mighty, destructive.
These were my results of an exercise called "Choose a color ('I am…')". Source: Wishcraft by Barbara Sheer

*sigh* Again, it's one of my prompts ... I truly love the word, how it sounds, what it could stand for ... but at the moment I simply can't imagine or associate anything with it! My brain is totally blank. Maybe I should wait until inspiration strikes me. Please, come back and hopefully see!

********
And here's my outcome:
February Journaling Challenge, Day-21: Mystique.

Well, I still don't know the right words for 'Mystique'. The only mystical creature, that came into my mind was a Chinese Fire Dragon (my Chinese zodiac). But I didn't want to draw a dragon ... so, I finally I just crafted my way along until this page came out. Anyway, today I received a lovely letter from my dear friend Vivian, that included some 'Ang Pows', red pockets used for the Chinese New Year. So, finally something Chinese found its way onto that page! Thanks Vivian!

Monday, February-14: Refrigerator. What (if anything) is hanging on the front of your refrigerator?
I'm single with a typical single household. You can be happy to find something in the fridge, let alone something on front of it!

Tuesday, February-15: Devil's advocate. Think of an issue about which you feel strongly. Without sarcasm or satire, argue the other side of the issue.
In 99,9% I prefer the books to the movies, nothing on screen could ever be so detailed than described in the book or as visual as your own imagination. At the moment I'm rereading 'The Lord of the Rings' and I might admit, that Peter Jackson's movies might be the 0,01% exception, where I began to like the movies more than Tolkien's books. Somebody might use that to argument, if there is one movie there might be others?!?! (Honestly, I don't think so!)

Wednesday, February-16: Upgrade. It's 2011. Cell phone networks are 4G; razors have five blades; and Starbucks is introducing a 31-ounce drink. What will be "upgraded" next?
I hope for human's brain 2.0. An advanced understanding, that violence is not the answer or a better environmental awareness or more humanity for the unprivileged people or whatever our poor planet is suffering from.

Thursday, February-17: Crazy. What makes you crazy?
People's bigotry, in whatever manifestation!

Friday, February-18: Strings. Write a brief bit of fiction using the prompt "Strings".
When my mother died I inherited from her a basket full of handiwork stuff. In that case you would have never guessed, that we're even related. While she was simply brilliant in knitting scarves and socks, I have two left hands. Anyway, I've kept that basket, even if I had no idea what do with it, and put in a hidden corner of my living room.
A couple of days later, I can't remember what I was doing, I saw a kind of red flash hitting the corner of my eye, followed by a sharp hiss and an angry growl. Curiously I followed that 'thing' into the other room ... where I didn't know, if I should be angry or simply laugh out loud. While I've almost forgotten, my little, four legged, purring room mates have discovered the secrets of the basket and found ... you might guess right, balls of yarn! With the effect that one of them was helplessly caught in a mess of red strings. I should have known, that there was at least someone, who would use this inheritance of my mother very well! =^..^=

Saturday, February-19: Six Word Saturday. Describe your life in six words.
Played the good little housewife, unbelievable!

Sunday, February-20: Contagious. What do you wish was contagious (instead of germs)?
Health! Wouldn't it be amazing to heal someone, just by touching him/her?

  1. New experiences and possibilities can only be made, when you dare to walk outside your house.
  2. Always try to expect an unexpected turn on a daily walk even it's just rain on a sunny day.
  3. I'm looking forward to reading the new Black Dagger Brotherhood book released in March.
  4. Some experiences in my life became so much different, I could never have imagined.
  5. Try to find the trust that your beliefs are unique, your own, even though others may think them odd or unpopular. Even though the heard may go "That's bad." (by 'Dead Poets Society')
  6. At least try to understand the other's point of view, even if I don't agree, and finding an suitable argumentation is what's extraordinary about me.
  7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing my poor right hand from its tendonitis, tomorrow my plans include cooking some fine chicken, Indian style and Sunday, I want to ah, right ... haven't made any plans for Sunday yet!

February Journaling Challenge, Day-17: Present.

I've used that wonderful quote from 'Kung Fu Panda': Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

P.S. I hope I can publish outcomes of the following days, I have an tendonitis, my right hand is wrapped, I can hardly type, let alone hold a pen! *sigh*

WQ-05. Youngest, Oldest Character.

0 Comments


30 Days Of Writing Questions

05. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about 'youngest' and 'oldest' in terms of when you created them?

Our four legged purring companions belong to my favorite writing subjects. So, I would say, my youngest character was a little baby kitten at the age of six or eight weeks. I've published one of those stories here on my blog: 'A Ball Of Yarn'. My oldest character, let me think, I remember writing a little scene of a war camp, where the doctor was 'an eternal' at the age of 576 years. And without releasing the whole secret, there is very mighty power living on my 'Voodoo Island', who's age is much, much older than 576 years.

Speaking of creation age, then I would say, my oldest character is that cat prince, I've already mentioned in the previous question. For our the daily prompt 'Once Upon A Time' in our 'February Journaling Challenge' I've written, just a few days ago, a little fairy tale about Rose, a young woman, and Robert, the sad prince.

When I think of my characters, they are rather different, aren't they? I would say, from a writer's point of view, that's a good thing, isn't it?

Wreck This Journal: Stain Log.

This is my Stain ... ah, pardon ... 'Coffee Cup Log'! *ggg*

Honestly, the idea of having (more) stain in my journal was ... well ... a bit nasty. Then I saw someone having that 'Pill Log'! This was my inspiration for having a log of my collectibles.
  • Background: With a bristle brush I dabbed pure flake white on the paper to get a wallpaper effect. It's sad you couldn't see that on the picture, it really feels like a rough wallpaper.
  • 32 coffee cup pictures, edited with PhotoShop to get little Polaroids. Print out, cut in shape, glued in.
  • Add the 'pins' and writing.

Monday, February-07: Super bowl. What would need to be in a bowl to make it truly super?
The book nerd I am, I would prefer a bowl full of tickets for free books! Yeah, that would be really super!

Tuesday, February-08: Advice. Imagine you're an advice columnist. In what area of life do you advise people, and what is your column called?
The Room of Doors.
I don't give advices, I'd rather like to show possibilities, according to my motto from 'Matrix': »I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.« That leaves the area quite open, let's talk about God and the world!

Wednesday, February-09: Sales pitch. Think of something you'd like to get rid of, and come up with a great pitch you'd use to sell it.
Watch out, you super skinny models, don't miss the chance of your life. I have here some extra kilos, I'd like to get rid of. Take some, get curves on your flat bodies and we all get closer to a real healthy weight!

Thursday, February-10: Live. Write about a place where you could not happily live.
*hmm* As long as I have a place, where I can close my own door behind me and have enough private space to calm down, relax and just be myself, I think I could live anywhere. The other way round, I couldn't happily live, when I had to sleep in a dormitory.

Friday, February-11: Scent. Write a brief bit of fiction using the prompt "Scent".
Like every morning, my first move after waking up, is my hand reaching right. I know, that my hubby is already out of the house, but I love to grab his pillow, dig my face into the softness and inhale deeply the scent. It's simply indescribable. His unique scent, so warm, cozy and familiar, but also dark, male and sexy. It's the second best way of starting your day!

Saturday, February-12: Spy. If you became a spy and could pick anyone (living or dead, real or fictional) as your partner, who would it be?
*hmm* If fictional partners are allowed, then I'll go for Hermione Granger. Who wouldn't like to have such a talented witch on your side? And with some Polyjuice Potion you'll have the best disguise in the world.

Sunday, February-13: Haiku. Write a haiku.
