I love art, books and makeup, as well as animals and various other things.

Update and New story idea.

Well I’ve written a bit, but I’ve also been busy with mental health issues. However I am feeling much better now and I will probably work on it, though I have a feeling it may get scrapped due to it not having any focus or a coherent story, I might rewrite it and edit it another time if it can be salvaged. But in my dreams I got a new story.

The Crow Princess.

It’s about a girl who feeds the crows and a boy who loves her, and their story. They discover truths about themselves, and grow from each other.

It’s more of a story than my other VN I was working on and I feel like this is where I should spend my energy writing.

Inactivity and Depression.

Sorry I haven’t been active in a while, I’ve been swamped with life and my depression hit be bad a few months ago. I didn’t really feel like doing anything, especially this visual novel, until a few days ago. It’s starting to come back to me a little bit at a time. I have not worked on it since my last post so…yeah.

But I feel like working on it more now, and well hopefully this kick will last longer than last time.

But here have a sneak peak to one of the characters:

I won’t talk much about him, but I still need to polish up his design.

Cons and art: My nerves for my first time at Artist Alley.

In less than two weeks I will be selling my art (for the first time) at a convention locally. I am incredibly nervous, so many what ifs that leave my head spinning.

I breath in and out and remember I have to focus on the last three prints that I haven’t started yet. Oops.

But my brother is helping and he could get experience working with customers and I’m spend a day at a convention surrounded by like minded people.

I’ll even dress up in ouji style or maybe even Lolita style!

After the experience I’ll blog about the day and everything. But I really needed to get these nerves out of my system. It’s an excited nervous, filled with optimism. Even if I know I won’t sell all of my stock, if I can make back the amount, I will be happy.

Well that’s enough rambling, haha.

Ambitions and Drive.

Writing a Visual Novel for the first time is intimidating but I’m up to the challenge. I have 5 love interests already and it’s looking like it’s going to be a massive game. I’ll post more details about it as it comes more and more complete, right now I’m just writing the story and doing some basic character sketches to get a feel for them.

It’s a love story, about a woman who is given to the faeries by her mother as payment for saving her on the day she was born. There are many possibilities and I have a feeling I will complete it. It would be a shame not to.

If you’re writing a visual novel right now, I believe in you. I hope those who are reading this believe in me too.

New Blog, New Beginnings.

I found that making a general interest blog a little more my style as my interests vary. So you’ll see a bit of everything, from book reviews, to games and what not. I have my own visual novel in development so I’ll probably be speaking about that.

I’m quite excited for Pokemon Go as well, and I hope if comes out this summer so I can go around catching all the Pokemon in my area.

I suppose this will be an introductory post, I’m Ellie. I like long walks in video games and avoiding sand from the beach. I love to cook and you’ll find some recipe tests here as well. Everything I like will be in this blog so It’s going to feel hectic but that’s just how I roll. Haha.

I find it very hard to be exclusive in a topic as my mind wanders towards other things.

Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll find some of my rambling posts entertaining.
