#430482 Don't-judge-a-book-by-its-cover concept (GAME :c)

Posted by TellTaleSign on 09 September 2014 - 02:45 AM

These are very interesting. Space Rocks, I believe, is about dreams and how so few of us actually end up following them. Everything is all about money. How much we make, how much it costs, etc. The same people that used to dream about being an astronaut become accountants, because accountants make the money. Having dreams is almost a lost art, but if we open our eyes, we can see that having dreams makes us accomplish incredible things. 

Correct :3
It's about the obstacles that come into your way when you try to accomplish your dreams. Yes... most people believe it is safe to invest money into what will make you wealthy, but will having a billion dollar net worth truly make you happy? I'd rather grow into a fancy tree, even if that dream seems impossible to achieve.

You guys are answering these faster than I can make them up.


I'm actually running out of inspiration for this little game. These poems are usually birthed from spontaneous thoughts and unusual situations,but I haven't had any lately...
while I'm trying to come up with another... um... poem thing, entertain yourselves with one of my favorite quotes.



Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.


― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

(Double posting.... I feel dirty :c)

**Space Rocks** solved

We reach for the stars and wish upon the ones that streak across the sky,
but what do the shooting stars wish for?
For peace?
For rest?
For a purpose?
To become what they want to be?
By sheer fate,
a select few fall into the atmosphere of the
as if they were sent to be planted from the heavens above.

A gift

Sometimes the seed is left alone to grow,
but unfortunately,
when something this valuable is found,
it is plucked from the ground and placed under the watchful eye of the same humans that once wished upon the shooting star for trivial dreams that they hoped would become reality.
For the raiders that come to gather the rock only seek money.
They don't encurage the childish fantasies that the shooting star once had,
passing them off as something scientifically impossible.
The meteorite must stay a rock because that's what it was destined to be
... Or at least...
What it was forced to be.
The tree still lies within
Begging to grow.

Am I still writing about meteorites?
Was I ever?
(Hopefully this one is is more dificult x3. I I'll make the next one easier.. maybe)

We have a winner yay haha
It's about experiences (the other guesses were pretty good too).

You can recall memories, but you can't ever relive experiences after they've occurred.

The poem in a nutshell: every experience is different. Some are good some are bad some are crazy some are boring.

The music ending represents the end of the experience.

Good job :D
The next poem will be up soon x3

And the kitty's name is moonpie :-P
One of my favorite cats that was lucky enough to get adopted. (If you cover his ears, he looks like a little seal pup x3... to me at least)

Extremelyyyy close.... I think I'm going to give it to you because I doubt anyone will say my exact answer, but I'm going to wait a while before reveling the truth. My lips are sealed.

Awwie
Good job on this one.
I like it when poems say so much with few words.


#430225 Don't-judge-a-book-by-its-cover concept (GAME :c)

Posted by TellTaleSign on 02 September 2014 - 02:45 PM

Interesting. Interesting indeed. I believe Planes is about life or love. Needles, I can say are about the little things in life we get irked by or just people in general. Do please continue, for this was fun.

Bravo haha. Planes was about love (just know that I'm a hopeless romantic... a lot of writing ends up being about love) and needles is exactly what you said it was x3.

I guess I'll make it a little harder this time around... or at least, I think it's harder.

Weeellll, it could be about several things, so I'll just toss out some that came to mind. :P
Expectatons perhaps, or past experiances - the memory being the only thing you can keep - possibly even a lost love. 
 
Also, is your profile picture your cat? It's very cute!

The writing cycle
Writing can be extremely dificult, but anyone can do it if they try hard enough.
You live vicariosly through your charaters.
You grow to love your manuscripts even though they may have flaws or imperfections.
You change your work for the better...
But more often than not you mistakenly change it for the worse.
Sometimes
The manuscript may become broken beyond repair and you know
Your'e the one who caused it.

You can't erase your mistakes because they are too grand,
You can't edit out the bad parts because they have become apart of the story,
But you can't seem to simply throw away what you had.
The words on the page caused you pain and anger, but it made you feel more emotion than you had ever felt with any other piece.
Maybe it would be best to just start over from the beginning.

...Am I still talking about writing?
Was I ever?


(I woke up this morning with images from a dream still fresh in my head. This is the product. Constructive criticism is welcome but let me explain the game. You just have to guess the true meaning behind my words. The winner gets..... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING :3)


(And for the record... this is a poem about love and loss.)
--------

Planes **solved**

They go to the end of the earth for you
as long as your'e there with them, guiding them along the way.
As long as you fuel them and give them a reason to keep going.
Sometimes the ride may get a bit shakey, but you'll make it.
Together.

Am I still writing about planes?
Was I ever?

_____

Needles **solved**

The little pricks have a way of getting under your skin.
Are you certain I'm talking about needles?

(This one has many answers haha)

___

Music **solved**

Each song has its own special melody.
Some sound waves drift through the air and chill you to the bone
While others seem to have the abilitly warm your soul.

There are ones that build to chaotic crescendos, seeming to have no order at all,
but some of the others are just the opposite,
Structured
the tune never surprising the listener with its lack of complexity.

In any good song,
you find yourself waiting in anticipation for the next barrage of notes,
the next sound uttered straight from the heart of the artist...

but after a moment of silence...
you realize...
the music has already ended
and faded into nothingness.

You morn after becoming aware of the fact that this specific song cannot ever be replayed.
The only thing left of the tune is locked in your memory.

Am I still writing about music?
Was I ever?

(These are kinda fun to write. How about some of you guys try it. Reply below. It's game time B))

Thankies ^.^
It was really fun to make
 
Here is something I forgot to post. It was my mom's Mothers Day present.
The top one is a cantaloupe cut into the shape of a flower.... I put fruit inside.
 
The one on the bottom is a watermelon, decorated with kiwi, extra cantaloupe pieces, and bananas... if I remember correctly.... and an apple swan on top.

(almost cut my fingers off making these)




#429181 TellTaleSign's Art *le gasp*

Posted by TellTaleSign on 05 August 2014 - 10:34 PM

All of the images posted here were created this year, but I haven't painted or drawn in quite a while.

The bracelets are very recent... made three days ago in fact.

2djxf68.jpg
This picture is done with acrylic paint. I've forgotten what the technique is called... but to make the background, you literally pour a mixture of acrylic paint and water on the top of a thick sheet of paper before letting it all flow down the page. When it dries, you can use it as a background.

To me, the background looked like a forest fire and a volcano, so I added an owl on a branch haha... doesn't really fit, but I just love owls

This was a quick exercise I did in class with color wheels.

I love making these things... I have no idea why X3


Well that's all for now. Maybe I'll post some drawings later. :3



I've decided to post a little more of my stuff..... One craft, One photograph, and one portrait of a friend of a friend (they asked me to draw them haha)
Again, this is all old stuff. I don't do much art anymore... I stopped about 3 months ago haha. The last thing I painted wasa Batman tile X3.

This is a candle holder I made for a Spanish project. It's made out of few alcohol bottle I found laying around my backyard and a broken candle stick. There is a street behind my house and the people who pass by just throw stuff down there (disrespectful! lolz). I put food coloring in the water to make it a blue-ish color and there are about 3 beer bottles (all cleannnnn) at the bottom of the larger, clear one. My teacher kept it haha.. I might make another one day.

This is a picture of one of my favorite hang out spots. If I'm lucky, I can watch the birds try to catch fish and see a few otters swimming around. I fish from time to time, but all I catch are bluegill (beautiful, but small).

The last image is the drawing of the friend of a friend.

#429162 Utopia vs. Dystopia

Posted by TellTaleSign on 05 August 2014 - 02:42 AM

"The Giver" was a fantastic book (although I seem to be the only one in my school who liked it..) as well as "F 451".

In any book about utopian societies, I always expect the character to be... How should I put it? Robotic? Psychopathic?

There is always sacrifices you have to make to have a "perfect" world and emotion is on the top of the list in most, if not all cases.

I notice that in both of these novels, people fight against perfection, but in our society, in real life, it's what most people strive towards.

No one is perfect, but maybe that's a good thing.

I'm a fan of stories about utopian societies, but I think that they would be much more exciting to write about a dystopian society.


#429126 Favorite Words

Posted by TellTaleSign on 04 August 2014 - 07:35 AM

I like the word I. It's a letter in disguise.

 

Seldom is a nice word, though I rarely use it.... ha... ha

 

I love the word buffalo, simply because of the following grammatically correct sentence, written by a college student: "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

Do Not Tell Me and Silence were a couple of my favorites (and a few other poems from the first page). :)

 

If you are feeling a bit discouraged because of the lack of comments, don't be. Remember why you started writing in the first place.

Just keep doing what your doing and improving upon yourself day by day. 

 

I can tell you love anaphora by the way haha. One of my favorite devices to use.




#429002 Introduce yourself!

Posted by TellTaleSign on 31 July 2014 - 04:38 PM

Hi there,
I have always been skeptical about roleplaying on forums, but since this site was recommended to me, I've decided to give this place a try.
It seems like a very nice community with little or no conflict (minus the violent rp) and that is always nice to see, but I will probably be lurking for quite some time, despite the welcoming atmosphere.

HalfBaked sent me, but I would like to say now that I am not reflection of him. I have read some of his posts on the forum and they are written very well (this left me feeling somewhat intimated). Whenever I do decide to post, I'll make sure my messages are worth reading.
Any constructive criticism is always welcome.

Well, that isn't much of an introduction now is it?
My name is Erica, but you can call me TTS or whatever you like. I'm from the USA and... I'll spare you the details about my love for animals and Oreos. I'm sure you don't care about my life story. :P
Nice to meet you all.
