So it's been a while since I've posted a journal update, and SilverInkblot tagged me in her Alternate Selfies meme. Here's my take at it! :dummy:

1. Post a selfie.

2. Post a photo of your bed.

(why yes, that IS a stuffed Wicked Witch of the West there...)

3. Post a photo of your bookshelf.

(This is my Christian shelf; I have lots more than this. Lots more :stare: )

4. Post a photo of one of your more unusual possessions.

(supposed to be a beetle in a box. sister gave it to me sometime, somewhere...)

5. Post a favorite accessory you love to wear.

(As my wardrobe mainly consists of t-shirts and jeans, this is about the only accessory I wear consistently.)

6. Post a photo of something you've had since childhood.

(It's a transforming pen I got from going to a program at the library in high school. Nifty.)

7. Post a photo of your pet(s).
Untitled by doodlerTM
(As my apartment building doesn't allow animals, and my betta died last week, this is
the closest thing I have to a pet. :saddummy:

8. Post a photo of your neighborhood.
Untitled by doodlerTM
(My street after a little bit of rain.)

9. Post a photo of your closet. 
Untitled by doodlerTM
(Technically I don't have a closet; I put most of my clothes in cubbies. This is my shirt cubby.
Told you. So many t-shirts.)

10. Post a photo of your shoes.

(Didn't realize how long my laces were. Wow.)


Well, that was fun. I'll post a regular journal later. Too lazy to tag anyone but if you want to give it a whirl go for it. :la:

CRLiterature Book Club Journal Header by inknalcohol


Hello! And welcome to March's CRLiterature Book Club wrap-up for American Born Chinese!  Check out the March Book Club: Mid-Month Check In and March Book Club: American Born Chinese (intro article) for more information on this month's book and past discussion questions!

This month we will be discussing the ENTIRE novel, so spoilers for all of it from here on out!

Question 1: 

The theme of identity (specifically cultural identity) runs an important thread throughout the novel. What does Yang have to say about identity in the narrative, and how does he get his message across? Have you had instances of where it was tempting to cover up or hide your own identity (whether it happens to be cultural, religious, or gender identity)?  How does the book speak to those sorts of issues in the novel?

Identity by Emberblue

Question 2: 

If you could remove one character from the novel, who would it be? How do you think the story would change if you removed this character?
Monkey King chibi by Launite

Question 3: 

What did you think of the ending? (Mind-blowing, I know.) Do you think it was an effective conclusion to the story, or that Yang could have tied up some more loose ends?


Prizes!!

Don't forget, we are offering an AWESOME PRIZE to whoever participates the most on the mid-month and end-of-the-month discussions! There hasn't been much discussion on the mid-month journal, so go over there and start talking!!

The prize for March Book Club is This One Summer, a fantastic teen graphic novel, by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki, courtesy of First Second/MacMillan

Well, I'm a young adult who likes to draw, doodle (obviously) and write in her spare time. I also like to float around devart occasionally and look at all of the amazing stuff people submit to the site. Please take a look at my gallery and feel free to add suggestions or comments.

-I'm a prose admin for DailyLitRecognition! Please feel free to note me prose suggestions for DLRs! If you don't know what a DLR is or want to know how to suggest them, please take a look at this page! ---> dailylitdeviations.deviantart.… In a note for prose suggestion to me, please include in the subject line "DLR Prose Suggestion (date)." In the body, include the thumbnail of the deviation along with title and author and what you liked about the piece/why you think it deserves a DLR. Thanks so much! :la:

Thank you so much for the referral, which led to my story being featured in the Recognition group! It was a truly pleasant surprise. :D

I have several more stories, which remain unpublished. Over the new few days I will probably upload another one. :)

I love your gallery by the way - keep up the wonderful work!

Thank you so very much for the favorite/collection add and the DLR feature. It truly meant so much to me. Made my whole freaking week, and I really needed something to smile about. Grinning from ear to ear when I saw it. :D
