I'm in South Korea!

I'm in South Korea, people! I'm actually in Seoul, the capital. I arrived on February 23rd and now I have to get used to the time change! It's 14 hours ahead of the east coast! So I might not be posting as much until I get settled in a new country and in a new teaching job. Hopefully, I will still be able to read. I did bring 4 hardcover books with me but that might be a bad idea. They were in my carry-on bag along with my laptop and other things. Man, my arms were sore from lugging that thing! Why not in my checked luggage? I filled both luggage to the max! 50 pounds! Anyway, I can't wait to start my adventure here.

Who knows?

Maybe I'll be inspired to write again!

Summer Friends, the Early Days

Anyone who had read Summer Friends when it was posted on Inkpop will get a kick out of this. I was going through my story files and found the first scrap of idea that later became Summer Friends. I forgot that the idea first came to me in a dream. I can't believe how far along Summer Friends came since that idea! I'm thinking about rewriting this WIP to motivate me to jump back into writing the Beautiful/Wild WIP!

Here's the scanned copy, front and back and untitled:

Hopefully, you're able to read my handwriting!

Fairy Tale Friday #17: A Cinderella Horror

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, people! If only the Philadelphia Eagles were in it, I would've been more excited!

I know it's not Friday.
I know this post is not analytic in content.
I think once I get settled into my new job and country in beginning of March, I can concentrate on putting more thought into these posts!

In honor of me going to S.Korea to teach, I want to leave you with this picture of a Korean horror movie I so want to watch! It's Cinderella but in a creepy, horrible way. Not your typical happy fairy tale! This movie was released back in 2006.

You can find out more about this movie on this wikipedia page:
