MINP – January Fake Instagram

a184bd29-0780-464a-918f-163dfd9d4532For this month’s MINP, I made an instagram account for Severus Snape, a character from the Harry Potter series. So far, I posted five pictures that I thought meant a lot to him. The first picture that I posted was a picture of 7 potion bottles that were mentioned throughout the series. One example is of the polyjuice potion. The polyjuice potion played a major role in a few books, since it does perform the useful task of turning into someone else. The second picture I posted was of a green eye, resembling Lilly Evans/Potter’s. In the last book, a few of Snape’s memories were shared with Harry, including multiple of him and Harry’s mother, Lilly. Snape fell in love with Lilly at a young age, and was heartbroken after she wedded James Potter. However, this didn’t modify his love for her as when Dumbledore made him vow to take care of Harry, Lilly’s son, he unhesitantly agreed. Lilly and Harry’s green eyes are mentioned and noticed a lot by Snape. The third thing that I posted was a picture of his patronus. This also relates to Lilly since they both have the same animal as their patronus; a doe. The fourth picture is text that says, “This book is the property of the Half Blood Prince.” Snape played a great role in the 6th book, The Half Blood Prince as the Half Blood Prince is unveiled as Snape. The last thing that I posted was a picture of the Defence Against the Dark Arts textbook. During 5 of the books, Snape shows a strong passion for becoming the teacher of the Defence Against the Dark Arts course, but is restricted by Dumbledore to do so.

MINP – December Multimedia Response

The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall

Fake Facebook for Delia Piven:

For this post, I added various details such as adding pictures of friends of Delia’s (bottom left corner) that fit the description of what the book told me. For example, Janie was described to be goth by then, Florence was a beautiful young lady with long, flowing hair, and Theo was made out to be a handsome boy in his mid-20s. I also included status’ that Delia others that posted on her wall, relating to her life, as described in the book, once again. Her first post was of the frustration she was feeling towards her parents, saying that they were being unreasonable for going to the airport and stopping her from going on an untold getaway to Daytona. The second post was of Janie Piven, Delia’s sister, apologizing for her and her parent’s misunderstanding Delia, which resulted to her death. The third post on her wall was a CNN report of her bizarre passing away. Lastly, I made Delia update her status to the time after she turned into a Piven Institute ghost. She says state-of-non-existance to the human world because in this novel, when you’re a ghost, humans can’t hear or see you, as they can only feel your presence with them.

Nanowrimo Review


Overall, How did Nanowrimo go? What went well? What did not go well?

I thought that Nanowrimo was a good experience since we don’t really get the opportunity to actually sit down and write for 30 days straight. What didn’t go well was that I sometimes didn’t write as much on some days because I kind of got bored with my story.

 

What did you learn about yourself? (Did you grow in writing or discipline or any other areas?)

I definitely grew in discipline, since in the beginning of the month, I didn’t pay attention to my novel that much since I knew that it was due at the end of the month, so I procrastinated. But at around the middle of the month, I started to work harder and write more words.

 

What is the end result?

I don’t think i’m going to get it published, but i’m keeping at least my plan, in case I need an idea for another short story.
