My good friend The End Justifies The Journey surprised me with her dream crate theme and after reading a couple of links she shared from fellow dream crate wishers, I thought I’d give this a go.
I’ve also heard about this monthly subscriptions boxes too. I didn’t know there was such a thing because being half-way across the globe, international shipping expenses alone can give one a coronary. Despite these economic downturns, these lovely curated and fascinating boxes are a joy to receive from what I’ve seen from several pictures on Twitter and also, from my friend CappucinowithJules she received a while back from a different pop box.
Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service geared not only to tickle but to satisfy your inner geek, gamer needs, & favorite pop culture styles by having monthly themed releases ranging from exclusive merchandises, wearables, comic books and more! They also have a section catering to the specific crowd too! If you’re a #Potterhead Wizarding World Crate might be just the thing, or a Marvel fan – hop over to Marvel Gear +Goods Crate or if you have friend who’s a huge WWE fan then the WWE Slam Crate will be up the alley.
So what would be my Dream Crate? I named it “Keepsake Creations” as nod to artisans, concept designers, visual artists etc in creating memorable products.
- Anastasia’s locket & music box. The music box is pictured here and I’ve read the new musical didn’t opt to use the pendant.
- LOTR Awen Evenstar pendant – All the Elven artifacts from Elrond’s study would be great but I’ll still to this one, easy to carry. lolz
“The Evenstar …and she took a white gem like a star that lay upon her breast hanging upon a silver chain…”
- Steve Rogers sketchbook – I’d be interested flipping through the pages of his art work, which seemed to act like a visual diary too and maybe for us, #Steggy fans, may find a portrait of Agent Carter herself. 😀
Steve at the front lines during WWII with Peggy Carter
- “Peggy and Steve finally having their dance” commissioned art work (I wish today’s rate 1 Php Peso = 1US even today and not eons ago) from my fave comic artist Mr. JKWoodward
- Letters to Juliet book – after having seen “Letters to Juliet” movie, I was intrigued finding out a group of women answering letters from matters of the heart voluntarily before and now, sanctioned by the City of Verona.
After a slight fiasco with my desktop, I’m getting around to re-posting this. Hope all you agents have finalized your entries. 🙂 I’ve tweaked and tweaked my opening scene entry thanks to The End Justifies the Journey input, which only lead to going beyond the word count. Lolz
If the novel writers have their NaNoWriMo month, Max Timm, founder of the “The Craft Course in Screenwriting”, launched this free course for neophytes of all levels, which started last April 20 to extend until June 20. Whew!
I liked the course. It has a mix of podcast files and transcripts if you feel listening will make you miss all the information.
The text lessons were a good add too just when my CPU broke down. It would have been tiresome listening through my device (no external speakers bought yet) without resorting to wearing earphones because I’d like to keep my ears tinnitus free.
There were assignments at every of lesson as well. Unfortunately, I’ve lagged behind ( big time) I’m still Day 4!
A lot of things to consider in constructing characters and hitting those story beats that has been keeping me preoccupied enough so I’m stumbling along my momentum, not to mention an ““Agent Carter S3 Fanfic Contest” opening act scene, which I’ve yet to add more meat it its bare bones. lolz
Too bad, I wasn’t able to get back to starting up my Marvel Unlimited monthly subscription since it would have been so useful for research. What I’ve written to my Agent Carter opening scene came from the back issues I’ve read. No thanks to this present prexcy of the country remarks causing our currency to weaken against the dollar. So strange though in the previous administrations, if our currency moved just one peg up in the currency exchange against the US dollar, everyone’s up and throwing tantrums and tirade…now, it felt like everyone’s shoved back in wait-&-see silence. Oooookay, going off the rails.
Back to screenwriting. Right now, write lessons and digest along the way before the course ends completely. 🙂
Not yet entering since I think my specs are nowhere yet up to full muster with such relentless scrutiny but it was something I noticed and hopefully, will one day participate too. 😀
