Two days left (or one day) in the challenge! Can you believe how fast January just went by? I'm amazed at how far my story has come in spite of unforeseen setbacks and unexpected forced breaks. But I survived the first month of the year and I've got the challenge responses to prove I wasn't idle. :)
Read on to check out my challenge responses for Day 30...
#WritingtheSensesChallenge Day 30 - Which was your favorite sketch and why?
I don't know why but I love trying to draw what I see in my head, even if I'm terrible at it. And coming up with glyphs has always been fun, though there's always the fear that something I've tried has been done already. I guess I got interested in glyphs vaguely as a kid. Then, later in life, I discovered the Myst computer game, I really fell in love with them.
#fantasywipjanuary Day 30 - How do you feel about unhappy endings?
Gosh! Unhappy endings happen often enough in my real life experience that when I trip over one at the end of a book, I feel so angry and annoyed. Like, "Why did you waste my time?" I know some people enjoy reading a book that is more "real life" but I read for the sake of being transported to more fantastical times and places. Yes, bad things should happen because life isn't always happy. But I don't think that means a book should have to end on a sad note.
Bittersweet is OK with me, like the ending of Mockingjay. That book pulled at my heartstrings all the way through and I really enjoyed it. But at the end, you get to catch your breath. You get to breathe again. And yes, the fight was worth the effort it took to get to that freedom. Please, please, please! Do not give me a book with a sad ending that has no hope attached to it.
