I'm working on one of my novel concepts for school, and I've decided to devote a blog to the process. There are rules, punishments, and indeed a motive on this blog. So it would be really cool if you followed said blog, held me accountable, and maybe shared it. The more people who I know are watching the less likely it is I will stop after it is no longer a school requirement.

Find the blog:

Maybe as I get more used to the process I'll open up question periods and other fun activities that will help me develop the world and be fun for you.

About the novel: Not So C.H.A.R.M.I.N.G. (working title) AKA NSC is a YA comedy set in a fairy tale world that has developed to be very similar to our own. This book so far follows Theria Hilda Andres The Second, the unproven Princess of Erna on her quest to show she can be the hero her country expects.

Well, my name is Roya. When I first made my DA account, at age 14, I didn't understand the usefulness of an alias. Now, at age 23, I'm just to attached too this to change it but too conflicted about it's content to change it to a modern handle.

I'm an idea person and a writer before anything else, yes I do other things, I draw, I paint, I act, and sometimes when bored at work, I dance. Deep down, I know that I want to tell stories, help other people tell their stories (through what ever medium they choose), and mayhaps connect people together using art.

I'm currently working on a number of projects, the most visible on DA being 'The S.S. Project', which is all rather hush hush, while being rather public at the same time. I'm odd like that.

Want to know more about me? Just leave a comment, or send a note. I'd love to get to know you.

Hi there.:) Quick question, you familiar with Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story?

Then I'll tell you.

Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story are a couple of JRPGs for the Nintendo Wii. Their significance is that they originally weren't intended for a North American release.

On June 11th, 2011, Nintendo of America announced that they had no plans to release three Wii games in North America, in spite of the fact that the games were fully translated into English and everything. Those games are Xenoblade Chronicles, Pandora's Tower, and The Last Story. In response to this, a fan campaign known as "Operation Rainfall" was formed with the intention of convincing Nintendo of America to change their minds about their decision.

After half a year of what seemed like a fruitless effort, Nintendo of America announced on December 2nd, 2011, that Xenoblade Chronicles would see a North American release on April 3rd, 2012 (then changed to April 6th, 2012, though I got it on April 5th due to Good Friday). However, the game is right now only available through GameStop and ShopNintendo.

Later, it was announced that the rights to publish The Last Story for a North American release had been picked up by XSEED Games. The Last Story is slated for a North American release on June 19th, 2012.

With Xenoblade Chronicles now out, and The Last Story due out next month, I decided to tell as many people as I can in hopes up stirring up buzz and possibly boosting sales on launch day. If you would like to see Operation Rainfall, Xenoblade Chronicles, and The Last Story in action, here are some links.
