spanish and italian:
So THESE words are feminine and THESE words are masculine, and you ALWAYS put an adjective AFTER the noun.
haha i dont fuckin know man just do whatever
LET'S ADD A NEUTRAL NOUN HAHA
*shooting up in the bathroom*
the pronounciation changes depending on the gender and what letter the word starts and ends with and hahah i dont even know good fucking luck
here have all of these consonants have fun
subject article noun article verb. too bad there's three fucking alphabets lmao hope your first language isn't western
sneeze, and chances are you've got it right. idfk
here's a picture. draw it. it means something. it can be pronounced four different ways. these twenty other pictures are pronounced the same but have very different meanings. godspeed.
so here's this one word. it actually translates to three words. also pronouns don't really exist. the gender is all in the verb. have fun!
here memorize 500 charts and then you still dont know what the fuck is happening
If you move this sign by a tenth of an inch, you'll be signing "penis"
idk man its pronounced like its spelt but good fucking luck spelling it
so basically we're going to add 15 syllables to every word you know and assign it one of 3 genders at random. Also good luck figuring out where to put the accents your piece of shit
Speaking as a linguist who has studied a number of these I can say that this is fundamentally correct.
Well, this is it. I posted the Epilogue for Written In The Body. I started posting this on 12/10/2013 and finished on 12/08/2013. So, that worked out well. The fic is huge. My final stats: Using Verdana 11pt. and single space, the fic is 649 pages long and 323,752 words long. I have two more little after stories for it that didn’t seem to feel right to post with it so this is it. Damn this thing is huge. I mean Order of the Phoenix is 257+K, so yeah, huge.
I had a lot of fun and did a lot of good work. If you are one of the people who read it I hope you enjoyed it.
After watching Master Chef Junior and feeling so schooled by these kids and their amazing cooking abilities I think I want to work on my cooking skills, but only in certain areas, because I am more down with certain foods than others. I really want to try making homemade pasta to see how that works out and try making different sauces as my marinara and meat sauce are already pretty amazing. It could be fun. Besides, think of the tasty food involved.
Would you all mind if I put up pictures of that?
J.R.R. Tolkien (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
I talked about this quote earlier, how it can relate to a lot of issues both physical and psychological. While Tolkien posited a fairly deep and complex philosophical question here he also showed the answer, by trying to live your life. Both Frodo and Sam, each deeply affected by the Ring, had some issues upon their return to the Shire. They both did their best to live. Granted it was a different life, as they could not go back to how things were but they simply adjusted. Dealing with chronic issues is like that.
I have hurts that cannot mend, that run too deep to ever be fully healed. A lot of people do. But by trying to live my life and face these things I at least give myself the chance to get better. Not completely, as I will never be whole again, but better than I am. This is a hopeful thing. Tolkien knew that and tried to show that there was hope even after something as traumatic as what Frodo and Sam went through. That’s a powerful thing.
The further tinkering of The Amulet of Adventure is going well. I should be ready to send it out for Agents in a short while, so that’s a good thing. By trimming the fat and adjusting a few things I think the story as a whole will be stronger. Besides it can’t hurt. I mean this process got me the best first line possible for this so I am not exactly unhappy with the decision to tinker with things.
Well, this is it, the last chapter of Written In The Body. I am going to do some Epilogues but the main story ends with this chapter here. This has been an amazing run with this story and I am just wowed by the response it has gotten. Now that it’s over I can turn my attention to other projects which is a good thing. Maybe I can actually get paid for this writing thing at some point… ;)
Here are the links.
I just wrote the last chapter of Written In The Body. Oy! It took me forever to get my mind back to focus but I did and I got this chapter written. The first draft is done and while I thought it was going to be 50 chapters long the ending just came to me and it fits so nicely that I just had to agree and went with it. There will still be the Epilogues, but the core story is over. I even was able to find a way to make it a touch circular, like I enjoy, having the end reflect the beginning. It’s a writing quirk I have but I am okay with it. Not every story needs to wrap back in that manner but this one felt like it needed to. So it goes.
So, now it is done and the Epilogues await.
