‘cast our hearts in gold’ crane

After folding hundreds of cranes, I’ve developed a few preferences.

For instance, I prefer thicker paper for my birds: this way, it not only feels like I am folding them, but it feels like sculpture. They have a certain weight added to them, and in a strange way - a strong personality.

Tomorrow I am starting a new, week-long mini series. More info with tomorrow’s crane.

Tagged by the amazing @austennerdita2533 to post 10 facts about myself.

1. I’m a hellenic polytheist, which basically means I believe in Greek gods/goddesses/deities

 2. I’m addicted to board games. And playing cards. I just completely adore it and I could play all day long.

3. I’m much nicer to people online than I am in real life. Honestly, though. I think interacting with people through a computer makes me less annoyed with them.

4. I ALWAYS change language mid-sentence and I constantly need to remind myself not to do it because it probably makes people think I’m being a pretentious douchebag, but it’s just because I think in multiple languages and can’t never recall the right expression/word to use in the language I’m speaking.

5. I prefer writing on paper rather than writing on a computer.

6. I love songwriting. It’s one of the things I enjoy doing the most and it has helped me through some really difficult times.

7. I’m great at Math and the living proof that you can be good at it and still hate it.

8. I’m totally, 100%, Slytherin all the way

9. I’m an INTJ according to all of my research about MBTI.

10. I’m still pissed that I spent 15 years of my life thinking that my horoscope sign was aquarius only to then find out that it’s actually pisces. Which is kind of ridiculous considering that I don’t even believe in it.

Trying to slowly recover from surgery so i made a quick doodle and then splashed some quick colors on it in SAI ;; o ;; she is my elven angel OC- Mika ~
I’ve been having problems lately drawing directly on my pc.. I just can’t seem to manage to .. I always have to do the sketch on paper and then scan it and continue it on the pc.. I prefer drawing on paper tjousands tomes more.. The fact that i can see my hand when drawing and that I don’t have to stare at the screen while i have to mentally “guess” what my hand is doing on the tablet is so less stressful… I’m using a wacom intuos pro M that i got in december 2014 but i am trying to save up for a cintiq, it will definitely solve the problem I’m having i believe .__. Because you draw directly on the tablet with cintiqs like you’d do it on paper, you don’t need to look on some separate screen while drawing.. It eliminates that brain lag due to constantly have to guess where lines go and such… Not sure if I’m making much sense for you guys here but I’m sure that artists that have tried both digital and traditional on equal amounts should be able to relate to this problem ;___;

I’m joining in with @modernbotanics #dailysketchbookgroup . There was a discussion a few days ago about how we keep our sketches; do we keep a sketchbook or use loose papers? I prefer to draw on small pieces of card or loose paper because I’m scared of messing up a page in a beautiful sketchbook. After working on a project the end of last year all my sketches were on loose paper and to keep them in some kind of order I washi taped them into a sketchbook. This way of keeping a sketchbook is perfect for my controlling and perfectionist personality! How do you keep your sketches?

One Page.

Today I wrote one page, and a bit. About 300, maybe 400, words but without fully realising it they were the right words cos after just reading them back I’ve realised the next bit of this story is the run up to the ending.
I had no idea. Thought I had a lot further to go.
I tend to write blind. I plot out an idea then just go with it and the story meanders along quite happily until, suddenly….
I usually have a better idea than with this one but sometimes it’s best to allow the novel to develop. I think it will end up around 90,000 words, maybe more with editing.
I just hope one day it manages to be published.
It’s such a slow process.
I might put a few out as e-books but I really prefer actual paper books. Wish I could have copies bound for my own collection.
When I finally have enough poems I’m going to have one proper book made just for me. Selfish eh?

So next week I am going to pass my 140 days of Kanji study mark. I think I’m going to aim to get to level six by then/around then.. and if I do…

I’m considering getting some muji notebooks & pens. I prefer to have grid paper to write on.. and none of my notebooks are holding up to being used over my knee or laying flat properly. I also want to get some Sarasa Milk gel pens. They look really cute.. ^ ^a  but I’m not sure the best place to get them since jetpens doesn’t sell muji products (sigh). Can anyone recommend a shop for them? Also… @_@ anyone know of a good line of index cards?
