Report 67 proof copy of NaNo novel and good news!

PS: No i didn't do a typo on the cover that's how I decided to name the magician in that work, with a 'j' because I find it more fancy~

It been a week or two now but I was swap by homework and now,even if I'm sick, I was able to finish two project and took some pictures of my novel! Here they are:

I didn't have time( our more like I didn't know what to draw) to draw a cover so I took one of the free ones. I didn't like how I couldn't change the pictures to make them all different.

But, see see! My name at the bottom! My silly picture on the back and my bad English on the resume XD

I read it all on the day I recived it and dear got its the wurst peice of lecture I ever read... I love it. I like how, right after I finish writing the novel the character, story, world ,plot everything just disappear from my head and I completely forgot all about them. When reading the story was like meeting them for the first time. I fell in love again with the character I like to write the most about, I laugh at the scenes I was giggling when writing. I was stuck on words where I knew I didn't know how to proper spell and try to figure out what the hell I was trying to say. It was one heck of an adventure.

My roommate thinks I'm crazy now XD Its around 150 pages but there is 24k missing since thats what I wrote by head and there is a 2k I lost( and was to lazy to re-write.). But I still like it, its the most awful, atrocious thing in the novel world, but I still love it because its the first piece of writing I started, finished and have the proof that I actually accomplish a novel and its not that hard to write a story when you just stop thinking perfect and just sit down and write the danm story you had in your head for the pass century.

Except of that...GOOD NEWS! :D One of my teacher ( use to be teacher he replace someone for the last term of my first year in Game Design college) contacted me ( via facebook, never forgetting that part)saying if I didn't have anything plan for the Practicum in April that he may have something for me.

I only had plan to stay at school and work on my own project but heck if I could get someone to monitor me I said that I was interest. Turn out he had a request game for a bilingual edutainment game and since I'm french he wanted me to help programming/ translating for the game. And if his pitch for the game get accepted I will be hired as a full time contract.

And he did tell me that he will hired me anyway, even if they don't get the contract because Im a big asset for his team.He also said it will refresh the team a bit since I will be the first girl there XD Thats not new. I am the only girl in my class and in group project I'm still the only girl. I'm not sexist ( use to but the first year of college, in art, I slap myself and not anymore), but My teachers always make sure they don't make to much sexist jokes around me XD

anyway not the point, the point is not only will I have a job, but I will have a job in here!I don't have to move at all! And it help a lot since I have to wait for a year for my boyfriend to finish his degree and I told him it was perfect timing.

For the practicum he send us ( me and a guy in my class that he contacted ) a email telling us what would be the plan and I had a choice to, if I have an idea of a game I can work on at polish state for the practicum he will help use manage that, or else it would be a sort of mini game jam where we come up with a design and work at it.

Like I post already on the game page, I started a game for my flash class, but I fallowed a tutorial in a book and when I try to do some of my modification its very buggy and I want to ask if if it is possible for me to just work o n that game, basically re-write the codes to make it my own. I already have the art done so I don't have to make task for it and just focus on perfect my skill in flash by re-starting a game from scratch now that I have a basic understanding on how it will work.

So now for the end since I smell food and I'm getting hungry ( sick so I didn't eat much today)
here is the list of task I need to be done before the 8 of April:

  • Presentation group project
  • Presentation individual project
  • Presentation Data Structure
  • ---need to write a small program for that presentation
  • Data Struct 2
  • Data Struct 3
  • Flash scrolling Homework
not bad, I'm getting things done. I have my individual presentation next Monday and I will fix up a short power point to say what thing when right and what went wrong, and what I learn from it. The group presentation is the week after that. And I'm going to send a email to my teacher for him to choose my topic for the data struct presentation.

I will be able to finish at least if not both data struct homework. And tomorrow I am working on the flash scroolling homework and get it done.

so not bad. I'm proud I may actually be able to graduate!haha anyway I will leave to it now

take care,
