Wednesday we went to K-stad to the office of VF (the local newspaper) with school and got to see some about how and where they work. The journalism info itself was lukewarm, but then we got to watch the presses. About eight or so giant machines printing all the pages of the paper at the same time, sending them to a machine in the middle that put them together and folded it, spitting out completed papers on a production line. They sounded like an airplane trapped inside a too small hangar, and there was this smell, like chemicals. They were blue, but loads of oily tubes and stuff stuck out everywhere and in places someone had patched them up with parts of newspapers, probably to stop leaks or something. And I watched these monsterous freaks of nature, and I really, really, really wanted to work with them. When I called mom, she said, of course working on a newspaper would be perfect for you. But I think she misunderstood.
I of recently also write slashfiction on Kpop (I will not be ashamed of this, it is fun! and great writing exercises too actually.) Click the link in this paragraph or look for the Slashfiction tag at the bottom to find it.

* Vanity, short, is one of the little attempts at writing short stories to symbolize the cardinal sins. The title story in Solomon is also one, but in Swedish.
*Jace, 10p, is a independant story set in the One World universe. Call it a love story, though it's more about the finer points of not loving. * About Love is roughly 50p, reminding a little about a theatre play but in novel form, about the things emotions sometimes makes us do to other people, and to ourselves. * Killeris a short story, 13p, about life, death, rooftops and reasons. * Tales of Ruins is roughly 100p, divided in five parts, together revealing the true story behind the destruction of Saehanna, could be called fantasy, and may require a miniscule of devotion to understand. Set in the One World universe.
* Vandraren, 6p, Swedish. A person walking down a road through the forest going past a house with a friendly family that is happy to take in guests. A harmless act of goodwill, depending what that road brings to their door. * Vanity, 4½p,take a trip inside my head, because fiction is all about bringing reality to its limits and exploring the possibilities of your own mind. * Solomonär det andra skrivprojektet sammanställt för skolan, nästan exakt lika som Diktsamlingen, men innehåller tre noveller istället för dikter ^^ * Diktsamlingenbestår av 17 dikter varav 16 skrevs hösten -07, och några illustrationer. Nu i efterhand känns en del av dem lite lätt mysko, but still good.
