Review: Shoplet Featuring Regency Guest Chair

I was granted the privilege of reviewing Shoplet's latest product, the Regency Guest Chair.

I received the product super quick and was pleased to receive it well packaged. I didn't have to worry at all about scratches or if anything would be torn so if you're having it delivered you have little worries here. All the frames and legs were carefully protected.

First thing I want to mention. Don't be deceived like I was, this chair is larger than it looks! I didn't really understand how big it was when I saw the dimensions of 22"W x 23"D x 34"H. I'm a below average size/height person so it's huge for me. I could sit cross legged in it comfortably. The arms do get in the way a little but I can sit at an angle and it's no problem then. So beware, if you're interested, make sure you know its dimensions!

Project Goal: To get a first draft of two novellas at an estimated 20k each which makes it a total of 40k.

Stage of writing: First Draft

What inspired my current project: I read a story on tumblr and read comments that said someone should write a story based off that topic. The suggestions and my desire to expand on it inspired my own version. It's sci-fi but it takes place in the not too distant future. lol

Victoria took on an icy look, "Well if you didn't want to come, you didn't have to force yourself."

I stopped myself from rubbing my hands on my thighs, "Grace didn't exactly give me a choice."

She softened a bit, "Yeah she can be like that sometimes." After a moment I wondered if she was still mad but instead she said, "Well if we're that bad of company for you we can all go our separate ways after this."

Turning around I gaped, that wasn't what I wanted. "Wait!" She turned around looking at me hauntingly. I was going to have to tell her the truth. Defeated I said, "Look, Dylan is interested in you guys. I was trying to find a way to get out of his way." I rubbed the back of my neck, "Apparently he thinks you both are more interested in me than him."

Victoria turned red, "That's absurd."

Relieved I laughed, "That's what I said." I stood a little straighter, "I just wanted him to have a little more one-on-one time with you guys so I was going to have a little get away afterwards."

A library meeting was a good idea, hopefully it would be secluded enough and no one would be nosy enough to eavesdrop on us.

Soon we were sitting in the library at one of the tables in a corner. I could hear the wind picking up but I felt safe enough for now. The rain was pattering so I knew the hurricane was just starting. I had been flipping through a magazine but wasn't really paying attention. I was too wound up. I glanced around and there didn't seem to be too many people in there at the moment with most of the people still trying to settle in for the long haul.

Eddy and Leah finally made their way to us. They looked like they would fall over at the slightest gust of wind.

Eddy straightened up and leaned towards us in a low voice, "So what did you need to talk to us about?"
I glanced at Dylan who stared back at me with a haunted expression. It appears that he heard or saw what happened too at John's final moments. "It's about the timer," I responded cryptically.

He gave me an apologetic smile, "I'll be sure to return it to you as soon as we know what we're working with." I nodded. He got up and went inside the house.

Once the door closed Chase scoffed, "You know it'd be better if they told us where the heck they found out about these things."

Layla shook her head, "Sometime things are better not to be messed with because they aren't meant to be understood."

"Is that what you think?" I asked arms resting on the ledge.

She shrugged, "I don't know what to think but I think we should trust them."

"I agree. I think they would let us know when they're ready," Dylan said as traced the water absently.

"True, they are good at explaining when ready but they're not so good at things before then," I muttered. The others bowed their heads in silent agreement.

Dylan finally broke the silence, "That's it. I'm done with all this downer talk. I'm done spending all my time worrying during my vacation. Let's play." He splashed all of us and grabbed for a nearby basketball spinning it on his finger, "Ok, who want's to play HORSE?"

April 2014 Campnanowrimo + 2012 Sketch Dump

Campnanowrimo for April is quickly approaching! I'm going to try to crack out two novella first drafts at what I think will be 20k each. It might be more or less but the goal is 40k words for the month and project. :)

I've got my cabin mates and they look like a wonderful lively bunch. I'm excited to get going. I shouldn't be because I've not worked on my outlines much at all. Still, can't help but bounce with excitement at getting this project started.

Time to get some projects finished! Follow me on Twitter to keep up with my progress! I'll also try to update my weekly status.

Are you guys going to be joining in? Let's cheer each other on! :D

Homework Sketch Dump 27 + April Campnanowrimo 2014

I'm still working on CampNanoWrimo stuff. Mostly outlines and trying to figure out the story line/time line. Yeah I know that's kind of vague but the week before April I'll go ahead and give a brief summary of the story. It'll be interesting as I've been bouncing the idea off a few friends who appear to be extremely interested in the story. I still have a few kinks I need to work out though. lol

Speaking of that, would anyone be interested in joining my cabin this April Campnano? My username is "aisazia" and since it has to be a mutual acceptance you'll have to share your username with me. :) The only thing I ask is that you'll be active. I've done it before but my cabin mate quickly fell off the wagon...Hoping to not have that happen this time around.

Comment or contact me if you're interested! :)


Planning for April CampNanoWrimo + 2012 Sketch Dump

I'm going to do CampNanoWrimo again in April but I plan on doing it a little differently. I'm going to see if I can do a couple of rough drafts for the month. I'm not too sure which project I'm going to work on. I've been switching back and forth between a few of them. OTL I know, I'm horrible. XD

The overall goal for the month is to finish 20k a week for a few novellas. I'm attempting to write two first drafts for two stories. That'll be a total of 40k but more would be better. It'd be great if I could finish the drafts earlier but we'll see how it goes. lol I know I'm capable of 20k a week but that's pushing it for me. haha Better not miss a day. XD I have a general idea of the stories but rough outlines are going to be generated in order for me to write it well. lol

Now to determine which stories to work on....lol Wish me luck!



2012 Sketch Dump

Sorry, nothing to really say this week. I was going to try to write something vast and significant but nothing really happened. Had a dinner to talk about bridesmaid stuff for my sister's wedding that went well. Otherwise, not too much else. XD Sorry I'm so boring.


2012 Sketch Dump + Thoughts

Here's some more crazy/random stuff from my sketchbook. The first image are ideas for Blindfolded Love which you probably already knew. lol The later two images are just concepts for a story of mine. XD Also just practicing different body types which I really need to practice.

Not too much new on my end. Got over that blasted cold finally. I'm feeling much better. I really want Winter to be over. Spring is my favorite season and I can't wait for it to start.

Ah, I finished a sketchbook! It's my large 9x12 Strathmore 400 Series Recycled Paper Pad which apparently I still need to review...lol Whoops, I'll have to get on that. Well this was one of my first sketchbooks. I didn't even start dating my work then so I think I got it in either 2006 or 2007...We'll go with the later but since I finished it in 2014 it's taken about 7 years to fill. XD To be fair I do use up as much white space as I can so I went back to pages that I hadn't fully used yet. lol Still it's a good feeling. I'm already using a new one, it's probably a little over half way full of sketches for school but I plan on going back to fill in all the extra white space.

Oh I realized I can borrow ebooks from the library without using an ereader! I still need to buy one or get a tablet eventually. lol Going to use that as soon as I finish all the of the books I already have. Much easier to return books as well. XD
