This puts a cap on week 2 of The Dark Times, this week was the start of the daily creates (“Lets Get Creative!”; A Cat on Synthesizer, A Yodel, and An Eye Selfie) which added some creativity for each day. I for one really enjoyed the daily creates so much so that I would be waiting for the next day to be posted though I may not had time to do everyone.
This week we also created a Character Dossier, mine being called Shadow aka Darkness. I had a bit of fun creating this character by bouncing ideas with my roommate about Shadow. Learn more about Shadow in my Character Dossier Introduction.
Similar to the daily creates we had to do writing assignments which involved being creative (which I also enjoyed). We had to produce 8 pts worth of writing assignment, 3 pts being dedicated to our character. I dedicated The Police Beat and the Haiku It Up! assignments to Shadow. I also did the 10 Seconds of Thanks Assignment, Unphotographable, and the required Alternate Ending.
Lastly was the most dreaded part of this week was the Noir reading, although they were interesting the required reading “The Postman Always Rings Twice” was 68 pg long plus 3 more stories we had to read, which I think may be a bit excessive since this is not my only class I am enrolled in and we had other assignments to complete. Though they were great reads, let’s be a little more reasonable on the amount of stories to read. Here are my reflections on the Noir Readings.
