    2) Diary Challenge 2010: Yes, yes, I'll do it. No need to talk me into it any further. I'm looking at you Ce.

    [face_mischief] And I'm already itching to start the Diary for 2010. I can't wait! :D


    My protagonist changes greatly. Oh no wait...I've mixed this up with the last Diary. *sighs* Well, she changed from the quiet mouse to a woman who needs to fight for the man she loves. So yeah, she changed.

    This character now? Eh...not so much. Well, not yet anyway. She'll have to change. I mean being thrust into the Star Wars world like that has to leave an impression somewhere along the line.

    Yay!!! Diary Challenge 2010....

    Do we have to do the thing where we say before the beginning of the year we're going to participate again? or just slap it in the title and pm you at the first of the year or what?

    Or am I just blind and didn't see the thread for it?

    I will get to work on it on Tuesday.
    Right now I'm in the middle of exams and can't even think about the competiton.
    But come Tuesday, it will be over and I shall be back.

    In general, to participate, all you have to do is pm the sock when you start and then when you update.
    Though it is allowed to link to the first post of each diary once! in the new thread.:)

    I'm going to finish this year out, and then never do the diary challenge again... Honestly, it's not as easy as it sounds.

    Maybe. I'm tempted to do something a bit more 'bad guy' next year. I think I'll need to play around with my 3D art program and see if I can come up with a character.

    I've already got the idea and I it sprouted from my deaf culture project.

    There is a sculpture by Betty Miller, a deaf artist... It was the inspiration cause I never thought that as an interpreter I had something common with a familiar Star Wars character... It was a major DUH moment... but, it's kind of cool...

    Looking forward to it...

    I won't be writing a diary for 2010, but that might be because I'll still be working on the diary for 2009. I hope to have it all finished by 2011, preferably well before, and *then* I'll never do the diary challenge again. (I've learned several things: the character might write one entry at a time, but I should have written ahead. Way ahead. And I shouldn't knock outlines until after I've tried one.)

    I think I might try again in 2010. Many, many stories in my head still waiting to be told. I hope that soon, one will speak to me and turn into a diary form.

    Definitely going to do this again, though I think I'll go for one this time instead of two. Though if I get more creative, two is still my limit.

    Well it's hard to belive that nearly a year's gone by - and at nearly 62 thousand words, I can safely say that is the largest thing I've ever written. To me it's also been one of the richest, as the character goes from the innocence of childhood, through the turbulence of teen years and into adult hood...

    I'm saving most of my thoughts for the final post (which will go up by year's end) but I must say this has been an incredible experience...

    I finished posting on mine today. Proof that I can stick with a project long term. It wasn't very lengthy in words, it came to be 12,885 total but I've really enjoyed getting to know my character more and I at first didn't want to do one for next year, since I did one this year, but I have ideas that would fit.

    I may try to go for two next year to see if I can manage it since I did so well on this one.

    I'm planning my diary for next year. Constant rewrites and such.
    But I'm hoping to complete my fanfic. Usually my bunnies have run away after I post the first chapter. The diary is of a preteen named Kira Skywalker and rest is for next year.

    I've just posted the final entry for mine. I'm kinda working on the one for next year, but not really. I'd being doing 3D art stuffs for it but I'm staying at my parents and don't have my art stuffs with me. It's been an interesting year though. It's just a shame I couldn't get all the mini challenges in.

    Also now done... page count was something like 45. (I'm not doing a word count. Just a page count.)

    Don't know if I'll do it again, but it was fun. :)

    I wonder how well that will work...
