Sayonara! I’m Turning Japanese!

by evilnymphstuff

So I’m currently in a phase where I’m craving for Japanese stuff… mainly, food stuff.

I believe it all started with a Japanese restaurant called M.O.F in which I bought a dish called ‘Shiro Maguro Shogayaki Jyu’. Yeah, whatever that means, it was delicious!

Then, I also noticed that lately I’ve been fond of Japanese authors, especially because each of the few books I read that was translated from Japanese always brought me into a weird but beautifully poetic story.

And I’m reading Murakami at the moment, the famous 1Q84!

And with that, I’m using a manga-styled bookmark!

Why Do I Want To Be A Writer?

by evilnymphstuff

This is a common question that is often asked, although very hard to answer. It’s like asking: why do you like chocolate? or why do you like that particular colour?

But I finally got an answer!! Sometimes, it’s really helpful to think WAY too much… ;)

So… why do I want to be a writer? Why did my 9-year-old self have this dream and passion and why, even after a decade, do I still have it?

Some Catching Up After My 19th Birthday!

by evilnymphstuff

Hello everyone!!! Welcome back to An Evil Nymph’s Blog!

birthday ootd

I know it’s been a while since I posted anything here, and I intend to do some catching-up to keep my readers updated, and at the same time, give this blog something fresh to show off to those I gave my business card recently, hehe :P

So, first of all, I am now 19 years old, since Saturday 3 May, and thank you for all the birthday wishes, to those who know me on Facebook or Instagram!

Now, if you are new to this blog, let me present myself before going to the updates: I’m currently in the time period that lies between high school and university and thus I spend time at home, aspiring to become a writer, and waiting for July to come, because then I’ll fly from my country, Mauritius, to Malaysia to study in Monash University, and more precisely to get a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

I Reached 50,000 Words!

by evilnymphstuff

This is a special post to announce that I’ve got past the 50k words mark in my novel-in-progress, a novel I’ve been writing since the beginning of the year – yeah if it was NaNoWriMo I would already be past 50k well before – as those who have been following my posts this year know.

And I didn’t realise that my previous post was actually my 400th! A neat number :) This is the 401st one.

Back to the novel I’m writing, it’s actually a project I’ve challenged myself to complete before going to university in July, and being on the 50k words line, I’m halfway through! Wasn’t sure if I should write ‘only’ or ‘already’ ;) I just feel that the story will evolve till past 100k words!

It’s urban fantasy, an idea, complex and continuously expanding, which was planted into my brain since I was 13 but which only became a story in 2012 for Camp NaNoWriMo in August and which I’ve been writing and re-writing since, never coming up with a completed story. Until now. Now I feel ready to finish that 3rd attempted first draft of this novel! I’m determined :)

If any of you want to know what this obsessive novel-in-progress of mine is basically all about, you can check out this short story I made based on it, for the Create A World Writing Contest by The Dark Globe which I actually won: CLICK HERE!

Anyway, thinking of novels… I made a book haul recently on my YouTube channel! Here it is:

Enjoy!

Tell me anything in the comments! About writing, reading… whatever! Let’s chat :)

Christmas Presents In Advance | Edition 2013

by evilnymphstuff

I remembered I made a similar post back in 2011 when I received my first and only Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy SII, in addition to a wonderful book of course.

Well this year, I also decided to get myself something tech-y as well as books and since I got my gifts way before Christmas (i.e. for more than a week)… today’s post is born!

But first, for the sake of the Christmas and holiday spirit, I’d like to share with you an event a group of YouTubers, including me, are doing to help other YouTubers, as during the holiday season we want to Do Good :)

Here it is:

Hope you have some spare time to watch it! If not, without further ado, here are my 2013 Christmas presents!

I’m officially getting back to the Weekly Photo Challenge! And this week’s theme is The Golden Hour

the golden hour sunrise

I took this photo from my room and it’s sunrise on a Saturday morning when I usually do my weekly morning jogging. It’s not a much recent photo but I think I never shared it with you right? Although I did on instagram.

I turned up the volume.

Come to the ocean of love…

My Looking-Glass Self

by evilnymphstuff

I’m late again, sorry for that, but I’m rather busy in this beginning of the second term of the school year; anyway, here’s your awaited Picture it & Write for this week:

looking in the mirror

 

“Happy 18th birthday, Lena!”

Their enthusiastic voices still echoed in my head, although the party was over for more than two hours. If I closed my eyes I would see their faded grins and narrow eyes and high cheekbones… I would feel their hands on me, congratulating me, wishing me all the best things in the world.

A Warrior’s Hair

by evilnymphstuff

This week’s Picture it & Write:

braids hair

“Can you braid my hair, please?”

Ciara grinned at her mother and widened her eyes in the way that would make any glacier melt. She knew that she was doing this every morning and that every morning she would be late to school because of this.

In A Parallel World…

by evilnymphstuff

Hi everyone! :) Here’s this week’s Picture It & Write:

touch

 

In a parallel world,

Where animals would talk,

Where we would live by night and sleep by day,

And girls and boys would be equal in any way.

The Key To Evilness…

by evilnymphstuff

Here’s this week’s Picture it & Write :D and my contribution:

key

 

To accept what you are, is to welcome all your qualities and flaws, telling them that it’s all right for them to exist, although some can lead to your downfall while others can put you up on a pedestal.
