Good day, Cyberspace! It is yet another Tuesday! Another bright, shiny, turquoise day that we can all share together. Let’s just take a moment to breathe it all in, shall we?
Okay, enough breathing. Let’s get on with the Smudge.
You know, I feel like every single week I tell you guys, “Strap on your seatbelts, fella’s, we’re doin’ something different today!” (Actually I have never told you this, but let’s just roll with it, okay?)
So this week it was supposed to be different. Or shall I say, the same. I was going to write a nice, boringly normal Smudge about NaNoWriMo or whatnot, and make a long, extensive list full of things you should or shouldn’t do.
HOWEVER, that idea will not be coming to fruition today. Or probably next week. (Although I am planning a NaNoWriMo survival kit, which I shall probably
not share with you sometime soon. [unless that sounds boring. Does that sound boring?]) Anyway, the reasoning behind this is that I actually got a suggestion through my suggestion desk!!! HUZZAH!!
(And if you, too, would like to send a suggestion my way,
like how I should really just shut up with the stupidly long introductions and just get on with the post, you can do so through the Suggestion Desk over in the sidebar.)
Now, I was super excited to see someone took the time and effort to send me a suggestion, and there’s just no way I could ever pass up the opportunity of actually responding with a post. So, person who sent me a message (I am not sure whether you want me giving your user name thingy out on here, so I’m being totally vague, BUT YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE), thank you! I really appreciate the feedback!
As for their suggestion, you can probably guess that from the title.
This is something that I have never done before. Ever. And honestly, I’m pretty sure I’m going to butcher this ENTIRE thing. BUT! Since it was a suggestion–and a good one at that–I thought, “Eh. Why not.”
And thus, here I sit, typing the longest intro ever to what is probably going to be a rather strange post to write, and probably a stranger one to read.
So without further ado, I give you–
The First Ever Smudged Thoughts Review (ft. Adaline Potts)
First thing’s first, if you don’t know anything at all about Adaline, or my NaNo project in general, then I suggest you head on over to my Introducing Ever Lost Post. It’ll give you all the
extremely vague juicy details on my book, which I seriously know nothing about can’t wait to write.
Alright, I’m just going to leap right into this… Here we go…
Me (duh): Good morning, Adaline. How are you doing today?
Adaline: Wonderful, thank you.
Me: That’s fantastic. I’ve actually got some questions I’d like to ask you, if that’s all right.
(This is honestly the strangest thing I’ve ever written.)
Me: Alright. First question: what is your favorite color?
Adaline: Oh! Most definitely red, for my sister, Rose.
Me: You have a sister?
Adaline: Of course. She’s sitting right next to me. She’s quite shy, though, so she only talks when there’s no one around.
Me: I…don’t see anyone.
Adaline: *face clouds over* No one ever does.
Me: Right. Next question. What is your worst fear?
Adaline: *wringing her hands* My worst fear?
Me: Yes, that is the question.
Adaline: I guess…I guess it would be the shadows.
Me: The shadows?
Adaline: They move.
Me: Uh-huh. What would you say your strangest quality is?
Adaline: Hmm… I think it would be my dreams. The others say I’m crazy, but I know they’re real. There’s this blue-haired boy, you see–
Me: *cuts in quickly* Alright, let’s just keep that to ourselves, shall we? *laughs nervously* Moving on… How long have you been in the–ahem–building?
Me: *whispers incoherently*
Adaline: Oh! You mean the–
Me: Yes, yes, that. How long have you been there?
Adaline: Eleven years this October.
Me: That’s quite a chunk of time.
Adaline: I’ve been there ever since I was a little girl. Right after my seventh birthday party. It was quite the celebration, you know. Well, until I grabbed the knife, and–
Me: Okay, then! Next question! What is your favorite animal?
Adaline: Oh! The butterflies! The others can’t see them, but the butterflies are trying to tell us something. They’re quite beautiful, too… So shiny…
Me: Uh…right. One more question: If you could re-do one thing in your life, what would it be?
Adaline: *eyes become unfocused, as if drifting into another realm* The party.
Me: I see. Thank you so much for being here today, Adaline. It was a pleasure getting to talk to you.
Adaline: Thank you for letting me out long enough to be here.
Me: (I think I should have interviewed a different character…)
Another huge thank you to the one who sent me a suggestion! (I still don’t know whether I should say your name or not, but YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!)
