I thought the original of this scene was really good, I remembered it as really good, and then I looked at it and was disappointed that my memory had lied. But I do like this scene as a whole, even if it’s not great even after the rewrite. Enjoy. :) Continue reading “R: Rebellion Ever After”
No, this is not going to remain the title. Actually this was originally “Quest for Taravina,” and it was one of the short fantasy stories I wrote when I was seven or eight, so it was really bad.

Unfortunately I’m not super happy with how this opening scene turned out, but hopefully you still enjoy it. :)

Goal-setting can be both exciting and stressful. Generally we make these at the beginning of the year, promptly forgetting about them or going off the rails. We also make smaller-scale goals for smaller aspects of our life, and generally these are easier for us to reach but we’re still not perfect. I’m largely talking in this post about the former type, but this also applies to the latter type for those of us who tend to go for overachieving at times or wrongly estimate how much time we’ll have to do things.
First, how do we Continue reading “O: Overambitious Goals”
