Myths I Like pt 1

Hello! Happy Wednesday everyone! We are beginning the second part of this blog series: Tropes, Myths, and Creatures. Part 2 is Myths and this will be broken down into 2 or three parts. The first is this general overview. The second will be about Arthurian legends specifically. And then if I get into a third part, it’ll be on what I don’t and do like in the use of myth and legends in stories. First, this week, overview!

Tropes I Hate

Tropes I Hate

Kill me with a spoon I hate these tropes so much. After writing the Tropes I love, with great difficulty, I decided to do the easier variant: things I hate. I feel like I can easily rant about things I can not stand far better than I can say the things I like. I will not get into ones I am apathetic towards.

For the ones I like, go here.

Without further ado.

Tropes I Like

Tropes I Like

I would like to start this by saying that you, as an audience, are terrible with filling out polls. Whatever, I decided to start with tropes. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

In general there are Tropes that I like as compared to tropes that I don’t care about or hate. I had to think of this for a while, and google some ideas of what tropes exist when I went into a blank. Because to be honest there are far more tropes that I don’t like than the ones that I do. I feel like I should make a post about tropes that I hate too. I guess I have a post for next week then.

So here is your comprehensive list!

Blog Post Poll

Blog Post Poll

Outside of Alice, I love a few specific troupes and myths and creatures. I’ve decided that for weekly blog posts I will write about them all. I haven’t decided which ones to write about first and so maybe you all could help. Here is an overview of what I can write about.

Tropes I like; depending on what I have to say this may be a long post or short one.

Myths/Real life Mythos and Religions I like.

Magical Creatures that I love.

These are it for now. If you have anything else blog wise (outside of my book reviews) that you’d like to hear my thoughts on, feel free to comment in the poll.

Memory {RW}

Memory {RW}

Memories. They come and go tickling the senses as they do. The smell of grass. An old book. Spring rain. Autumn wind. The feeling of summer’s heat, blue skies, or gray ones if you like. I know that when I hear the sound of bike bells I remember the years of riding our bikes and skate boards and scooters to the park. The baseball game would be going on and with our twenty dollars we could fill up our small bags with candy and sweets. But we had to be fast or else our parents would notice we left the neighborhood. All that candy we just bought? It needed to be scarfed down before we forced our stomachs to endure a healthy food shock that was dinner.

My Love for Alice

My Love for Alice

I’m only writing this out after reading a novel about Alice in Wonderland and I… I felt empowered to speak about my favorite novel. I did not feel empowered to edit, however, and so it is coming out weeks after I read it.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was hardly the first book I ever read in my life. It was not the first one my mother read to me. It was not my first fantasy. It was not my first adventure. It was not my first classic. It was not my first anything, but it is my favorite.

In many ways this makes me extremely critical to any and all renditions of it in any medium. In the end, my favorite version is the original.

Current State

Current State

I have determined that I have readers block. It’s like an artist block or writers block, but in regards to reading. I just don’t want to read, or at least its not calling me to the pages like books usually do. I think its the expectation to read things that I just don’t want to read? Or I do want to read, but just… not right now.

About the {RW} Series

About the {RW} Series

What is the {RW} series? It translates as Random Writings. It’s just a series where I let my brain state what my brain wants to state on random things. There is no real meaning to it. They may be large. They may be small works. In some ways they could be considered poetry, but I wouldn’t go that far.

They are random writings, my personal writings about things.
