Needing Your Opinion

SO I’m having ideas and I know that’s a scary concept but nevertheless. I’m thinking of doing some drawings/sketches for the My Life: A Fan-Fiction stories. I think I’d go with one sketch per chapter. I’ll admit I’m far from being a great or even good artist but I feel like I can make something and giving one’s audience a visual makes things more eye-catching. The drawings would be some kind of representation of the chapter’s content and as I mentioned before be a cool visualization to make the stories more eye-catching.

I have the idea that once I’m done with some of these stories (which is going to be a decently long time) I’d kind of like to put it together in a book. I’ve played around with Blurb before and I feel like I’d use that to put together a “nifty” (yes I used the word) book. So I want to know what you all think. Are the drawing and book ideas good ones?

As a bonus I’d also like to reiterate that I am also working on the whole language of magic that is used in The Land We Wander: A Fantasy Tale. If the book idea is a good one then that’s where I’ll publish the language I’ve created. Thank you all for reading and please feel free to reply and let me know what you think.

Maze Runner

The-Maze-Runner

So I just recently got to see the newest movie adaptation, from the popular book: Maze Runner. The story follows Thomas who awakens going up a caged elevator that opens up to a group of young men standing around him. He quickly comes to realize that he and the others are trapped in “The Maze” but reside in the central safe place for fear of going inside. There are, though, a group of guys that venture inside to try to map the maze. Thomas becomes a runner and has to find a way out, and survive the deadly creatures that reside inside. The movie definitely hit the mark in the exciting category, there really wasn’t a moment when I wasn’t on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I also liked the way they added some good creepy jumpy moments. The humor attempted was a little weak but it really wasn’t supposed to be that kind of movie anyways so not really a big deal, and the ending was a little weird (but hey as long as it’s sticking to the book, which I haven’t gotten around to reading, that’s totally ok with me). If you see it you’ll definitely see that there’s going to be a sequel, so that’s definitely something to look forward to.

Pros:

Great action movie, as well as a little creepy. Ended satisfyingly (with expectations of a sequel. Had some great actors (I love British actors!!!) Great theme, storyline, dialogue, etc!

Cons:

Lacking in their humor’s quality, jokes were cheesy.

Favorite Character:

It’s a very tough choice between Newt (Played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Minho (Played by Ki Hong Lee). Newt for his actor (not that his character as the right-hand-man wasn’t a great character), and Newt for his character as that one runner that doesn’t give up and sticks with Thomas’s crazy reckless  curiosity.
