Did some watercolours over the weekend, and this one is my favourite. Her name is Anna, and she loves the smell of vanilla.


I have thoughts of how she is incorporated into my artefact, though I know I’ve technically already submitted this blog. Anna is Devlin’s sweetheart, but she died just before the story takes place. All Devlin has left of her is the locket she gave him as a gift, and so when Thorne accidentally grabs the locket in the stabbing scene, that sets Devlin off for revenge.

It’s dark, but that’s ok.

Now to finish writing this artefact. I’m so close to finishing it, but I’m worried that I won’t have enough word space. Same problem every time haha.


I have achieved!

Hello wonderful readers,

I worked all day yesterday on my artefact, writing and editing and rewriting and re-editing. There is still stacks to do, but I’m really pleased with where I am with it. I’m beginning to think I may run out of words! Editing is my friend, believe me.

Unfortunately, this will be my last post before I officially hand this blog in, as I am spending the weekend away with some friends and won’t access the internet until Monday, the day after this is due.

So, I bid you farewell. Thank you for perusing through characters and ramblings and excellent songs with me. I have absolutely loved it. ^_^

Signing off for the last time,

Ela Colangelo

P.S. One last excellent song before I head off. This was on repeat most of yesterday, and it’s good for background work music. It’s called Kiss the Sky by Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra, featuring Nino Mochella. I discovered it through playing Borderlands, and I think it is quite excellent.



The End

Character Development

Hello there,

While listening to My Life by Bliss n Eso (excellent song), I have come up with some character concepts.

So this chap here is Thorne Neosang. He worked on his family farm. He is cheerful and humorous, and is always teasing and joking when he is not working. He is a little superstitious, and this comes out when his cousin, Devlin, comes to live on the farm for ‘character building’. He means well, but can be tactless. He throws his head back when he laughs.


This is Devlin Corday. The most startling thing about him is his eyes; one blue and one brown (though the picture does not show this well), and this unnerves Thorne. Devlin is a merchant’s son, and has been brought up well. He is finer mannered than his cousin, and loves to draw. This creates conflict with the rest of the occupants in Thorne’s village, as it is not becoming for a man to dabble in the arts. Devlin does not understand Thorne’s sense of humour, and mistakes it as Thorne mocking him. He rubs the back of his neck when he is uncomfortable.


I’m pretty excited about my artefact. I’ve got nearly 2000 words, which is a good start.
