    Idk if anyone will even read this, but I just wanted to share some writing I have done lately. Yeah, that was the Lamest Blog Post Title Ever, but it works for now. >.< It's another untitled original story idea. I haven't got much, just a few bits and peices from different povs which I wrote to stop them rattling around in my already-muddled-enough brain. =P There are six main povs, which are Ragna, Runfastr, Dusty, Starsky, Ocean, and Flayre. That's a lot I know, but I'm really having fun weaving six characters' tales into one big tapestry. Like good ole Brian Jacques. XD So here are the little bits I've got so far. Enjoy! =) I'll add some of my concept art too. ^^

    Clang! The barred gate slid up, and Ragna walked out onto the sand-covered …

    Oh Thor, I'm finally doing this... I know, I said I would be ashamed to show my old pictures, but these are my first two... for some reason, these two actually were not too bad, I still like them, but after that, I just got lazier, I guess, and my drawings got sloppier and sloppier, until I finally realized how awful they were. Then seeing all the amazing fanart on the wiki (I'm looking at you, Sayna XD.. and Reep and everyone.. ;)) made me decide to work harder on it and improve my art, and yup. Waayy better now. ;D

    You have my permission to laugh your head off. XD

    So there you have it. My first RW fanart. x]

    Alright, so you probably already know that I want to do a rewrite of The Rogue Crew. I really love this book, but there are some things that I don't really like, and I'm sure you know what I mean. ;P  I already have a few ideas and some concept art, but I'm still trying to work this out. If you have any suggestions, or things you would like to see happen in this fanfic, please let me know in the comments! :) I'm also trying to figure out a title. I'll brainstorm tonight, and if I come up with anything I'll make a poll for it. But meanwhile, if you have an idea for one, please tell me. ;) I know it will be a loong time until I actually write this, but I'm always planning way ahead anyway. ;P I'm hoping I'll do it after I finish Hero's Destiny…

    Here is a poem that I wrote last night. Now I'm not usually much of a poet, but for some reason this one just randomly popped into my head. And it's actually a serious one, (or serious-ish) cause usually I can only write silly and ridiculous ones that make no sense whatsoever. :P I might use it in one of my stories, but idk. It's kind of a metaphorical thing, and, well, you'll see. XP

    One fine day two mice were walkin',

    One called Bill and the other Rocken,

    They were both looking for a new abode,

    When they came to a fork in the road.

    One sign said: This path is hard,

    But at the end is a great reward.

    The other stated: This way

    Is easier, but ends in dismay.

    The first path was thorny and overgrown,

    The second was pretty and wellworn.

    "Which way will we …

    Salmonberry Pond is based off of the pond we have on our 20 acres. It is actually more like a lake for the characters, because in this world, the animals are not human-sized, they're the same size as in our world. But anyway, it is a place where the animals can live together in peace, and usually do, unless some bad guys attack them. Those who have tried have not lived to tell the tale. ;)  

    Hopefully I will get some pictures on here sometime. ;P

    Also, there is now this wiki, where I am writing all about Salmonberry Pond. :)

    There are 7 main tribes of Salmonberry Pond:

    The Mice live in caves in Spring Bay. They are normally pretty peaceful, unless their home is in danger, then the bad guys are the ones in danger.

    The Shrews live in Shrew cave, …
