Happy Labor Day!

First of all, what do you think of my new blog header? Like it? Hate it? Too much? Preferred the old one? Let me know!

Advice Day!

Well, today is going well so far. Since I actually got my work done this week, today wasn't bad. I had a significant amount of BritLit to do, but since I loved "Paradise Lost" so much, that was hardly work at all. I still want to read the whole thing. Over Christmas break maybe.

Well, as far as writing goes, I got a fair amount on that Desirae Mayes story last night and today. I'm not sure if I like it. Desirae's writing style is not mine at all, and I'm trying to decide if I can stand writing like her instead of me.

Because the story is about Desirae's story, it's kind of a book within a book. Coming up with a plot for Desirae's book is difficult though. Right now, it's pretty cliche and shallow. I'm not sure how much that matters. We'll see.

The overall plot to this story (my story, not Desirae's, lol) is okay, I think. It's so new and sketchy that I can't be sure, though. It most likely won't go anywhere, but with "Mirror" on hold for lack of inspiration, and "The W Chronicles" at a puzzling stand-still, I was going crazy not writing. Writing something cruddy and unimportant is much better than writing nothing at all.

Other than writing and school, that's all that's been going on today. We don't have any specific plans for Labor Day, so we'll probably just chill around here. Maybe we'll get together with the neighbors. (If we do, I'll be able to get the next HP book!)

Oh, one last thing: I made a blog button for, uh, my blog. It's on the sidebar...yeah, right there...You found it! :P It's the same thing as my new header (lol, no duh, right?)

Anyway, I'll talk to you later! Have an amazing long weekend! CARPE DIEM, PEOPLE!

I like the header!!
how's that for a fast comment? :)

Bethany said...

Oh yeah, I think maybe the "live love laugh" should be in a darker color, it's a bit hard to read.
Nice, though!

Kendra Logan said...

Thanks!

Yeah, I think so, too. I tried to change it, but there isn't an option to change the color of the description! It's weird.

I changed it, though. What do you think now? I'm not sure I like this one as much...

I like the header! And thanks for the tag!

Kendra Logan said...

Thanks, Sparkle! And no problem :)

Bethany said...

Hm. Easier to read, yes. I think I did like the other better.

You know, I do a lot of stuff in Photoshop, and if you like I could take that pic, and whatever font/color/placement you like...let me know, I'd love to do it! :)

I love the new header and the blog button! :D

Kendra Logan said...

Bethany: Wow, that'd be great!

I just used a picture from the internet. Here's the link: http://www.crystalizedmedium.com/assets/images/the_rising_sun.jpg

The font is "Batang".

As for placement, just how it is right now is probably good. Big writing, in the center with the address at the bottom and the four Ls...

Well, you know what? Why don't you just do whatever you want? Lol! I'm sure anything you make will be beautiful. Just in general, that's the look I'm going for.

Thanks again for doing this! How cool!

Moon Shaw: Thanks!!

Bethany said...

Aha! I made a header, and will email it to you, as I'm not quite sure how to post it on my blog at full size. :)

Aw, yay!!
