Doctor Who Contest Results *CONTEST NOW CLOSED*

Thank you to all who participated in the Doctor Who Creativity Contest! Everyone here behind the scenes of the Art Drawer really appreciated how creative your entries were. Every single one of us, technicians, writers, comedy writers, actors and more all enjoyed seeing the wonderful drawings and buildings. I am sure Doctor Who would, too.

The Results:

First up, we have KingofRandom with his really cool manga drawing!
(Text: Text Box:
"Today's Lecture: Time
Guest Speeker: The Doctor"
Chart: Time [arrow] Wibbly wobbly timey wimey"
"Zander Krasny")
We really liked the idea! Never would have thought of it! Thanks, KingofRandom!

Second, we have moonembrace! She has sent us two pictures of her creations. She made CRAYON TARDISES!!!!!!!! I was quite impressed with her creativity. She tells us the photo quality was bad, so she tells us these are crayon Tardises. Thanks!!

Those were our winners (Both tied for first place). Sorry for the wait, but creativity never ceases! If you are inspired by these winners and want to enter your own idea, feel free! The contest is still open, but our winners have already been chosen. Thanks!!

Random + Nurby,

Huffington Post Books

As you know, I am hoping to become a published author quite soon. And as you also know, I entered NaNoWriMo. Mom saw on Twitter that Huffington Post Books put out a Twitter feed asking if anyone who was participating in NaNoWriMo would be open to an interview about it. Mom said that her daughter was participating, so I wrote back to the woman that asked and I said yes, and I slipped in that I hope to be a published author soon. They might know some people who could do that for me. Could this me my big break? I doubt it, but I might get a quote in an article about NaNoWriMo! You might be able to see it sometime on the HuffPost Book section on their website. Not yet of course, probably not for a while. I will tell you exactly when and where when it is published. :)

4 Month Anniversary

Yay! We have kept the Art Drawer going for 4 months so far. I hope we have a lot of great readers, nay, I know we do. You guys have stayed with us through thick and thin, through bad writing days and good writing days. And weird days. A heck of a lot of weird days. But that is beside the point. The point is, thanks. The point is, the Art Drawer is not only here for our enjoyment, but yours, too. And we hope you have enjoyed the Art Drawer so far, because there is a lot of it left! Because November is the 4th month of the Art Drawer, AND National Novel Writing Month, why don't you write some fan fiction of CB and RK's daily lives? You can leave them in the comments. You know, what you think we are like based on our posts. Thanks! Hahaha!

Random + Writing,


     Do any of you like to write? Well, November is the national novel writing month! Or NaNoWriMo for short. This is a national activity that encourages the art of literature.
     Every year, published and celebrated authors and even regular people are challenged to write 50,000 words or more by the end of November. It is a fictional book that was completely started and finished within the month of November.
     You can't have written any part of it or even outlined it. You can have an idea starting in your head, but try not to think too much about the plot, since many people outline books in their heads.
     If you want to sign up, it is free and it is a very trusted website. www.nanowrimo.org is the URL. Remember, when you are making your quick and easy account, click the button that says you are 13 and up, because this means the website is not violating the law that no personal information may be solicited from children 12 years and younger over the internet. It means you knowingly give your permission to have an account created.
     I entered a few days ago, and I have been waiting for three painstaking days to start writing, and today is November 1 so I began writing. I have 494 words of 50,000 so far. I might just make it. The goal is 1,667 words a day. In 30 days. Do you think I can do it? Do you think YOU can do it? Even if you aren't going to participate, do you think you WOULD be able to do it? Leave your answers in the comments!

Good luck and get writing!

     Every fictional novel has a main question, a question that decides the plot. What is yours?

Random + Writing + 50,000 words,
