Golden Time, episode 8

fictionwritingtips:

We see the same plot devices used over and over again on television, in movies, and in the books we read, but a lot of them work—which is why we use them all the time. However, there are some common and/or over-the-top plot that should be cut from some stories, unless…

The New York Subway Signs Experiment

"NYC subways have a strange rule. We took advantage of it."

This is cute. Also, I didn’t know that.

Being a writer is about being a reader first and what you like to read… The diversity of your work reflects, to some extent, your taste in what you like to read over the course of your life. I feel very strongly that writers ought to write the kinds of books they would like to read.

Whenever your faith in people is lost, remember these pictures.

That wheelchair park they’re talking about? I’m pretty sure it’s Morgan’s Wonderland here in San Antonio.

I’ve been there. Those swings are amazing. They also have an accessible carousel. The first time I rode on it, I almost cried because it’d been over a decade since I’d ridden on one.

Just be honest with me or stay away from me. It’s not that difficult.

Yay, finally done? I’m hearing that there’s very little post-game stuff so this may very well be the last Pokemon Y Playthrough post. I guess I have a good grasp of the game itself by now and fully be able to dissect the good, the bad and the wow factors. But a review is for another time, so for the time being, this is my Hall of Fame party. 

Party: Greninja (70), Aegislash (67), Meowstic (65), Venusaur (66), Talonflame (66), Florges (67)

It was a lot of fun! Now for the funner stuff, like breeding and catching and the Battle Maison. 

And I’d be up for casual battles for the time being. FC is 4570-7572-3456. 

It’s been a while. I’m still playing, just a little bit less than usual. Getting through Victory Road wasn’t all that difficult but had to force Venusaur to learn Strength to push some darn rocks. I think I’m ready to take on the E4 and it’s about time, too. I mean, everyone’s already doing other neat things but I’m still trudging to get to the end of the normal gameplay. Here’s to hoping I can get by without a hitch…!

Yeah, decided to bench Tyrantrum because I don’t think its speed and weaknesses can do a lot for me. While I would love to abuse Stone Edge or Head Smash, its accuracy is pretty bad enough. I think I’d prefer to use Meowstic’s wider movepool than Tyrantrum’s physical strengths. Sorry, Rex… maybe next time!

I swear Espurr’s out to get me. Why Chrome decided to screen that on my default page, I don’t know. 

And yes, these are the sites I frequent. Sad, I know.
