Weekly Summary

This week flew by. I was able to watch Double Indemnity, but the site kept freezing.

The design assignments were fun.

I liked doing the one with Professor Grooms face on a movie poster. That post is here. I searched his twitter to find just the right picture for the movie poster.

The banner and promotional flyer assignments I used for my character. For promoting her craft and occult store.

The daily creates I got my daughter to help. She wore the food for the “Play with your food“.  The “What is your superpower” was special to me because it included her. It was fun playing the old arcade games again for the video of arcade games.

The designblitz took some time to find all the designs concepts. I was able to get many of them in my post.

Week Two

I am actually finding the writing assignments and daily create assignments to be quite fun.  I am learning a lot from them.

I was one who didn’t want a twitter account and didn’t look at blogs much. But I will say that this has been an interesting and eye opening experience.

I liked reading then listening to The Shadow  The Death Triangle. I found the script to be able to keep my attention. One I like old-school mysteries. Two, it had twist that kept me wondering.  Once I read it, I had to listen to the original recording. The technology back then to do the different types of sounds was inventive.

The Postman Always Rings Twice was a story that I could not really get into. It had some twist and turns throughout, but for some reason, it didn’t hit the “enjoy reading me” button.

The third reading I did was The Killers by Ernest Hemingway. Other than the racial slurs, the story line was intriguing. It was kind of sad to me that Ole Anderson was basically giving up, when the others were trying to help him.

For my character, I actually had a story I had been writing. I decided to use her. She is part Cherokee Indian, Scott-Irish, and German.  If you haven’t guessed, I am really into the moon, stars, and sun. So when looking for a name for her, I choose one that meant “power of the moon”, Miakoda.

Writing assignment

There is a quote from the Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon that  states “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”.

This quote was said by the character Acheron who is the leader and turns out to be a form of a Greek God. I find it fascinating because it is so true. Many people in this world do things just because they can. They really don’t think about the people that are affected by their decisions or actions.

Just because you can do a cartwheel, doesn’t mean you should. You might hit the person next to you. Just because you can steal something, doesn’t mean that that something means something to who you steal it from. Maybe it is the last thing a loved one gave them before they died. Maybe it is the only money they have to pay their bills.
