What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Another Another Art Minute

Because today was really as bad as they come stress wise. And I'm going to be better than usual and leave it at that. Look, I found a use for the tiny brads I've been hoarding! I think the wing would have looked less like meat if I used a different color, but I had such success with the red on the bead. . .ah well

There it is, all folded up on itself and the wing looking like a side of meat. Kinda. And. . .

There it is all unfolded and the telescope visible with the cool writing now able to be seen. Don't strain your eyes, it's stamp writing meaning that it's suppose to look vaguely like something hand written. Think 'loren ipsum'.

That looks really cool. Reminds me of something from MYST.

LOL that is what I was going for! I love MYST. Finally found the sound track--perfect to listen to while writing.

Pais Charos said...

Soundtrack? Wow, some of that would be kinda creepy - hehe.

They finally made MYST 1 for Mac - I just need to actualy purchase it. I played MYST 1 with my dad ages ago when we still had a PC. He played Riven, and then we didn't get any other Myst game until Revelation (which was cool but really difficult). I'd like to get all of the games and play them all through, you know? 'Twould be fun!
