        Writing can be utilized in a number of ways. As a form of art, writing conveys messages, much like painting pictures do, through poems and prose. As a method of therapy, it paves the way for the release of stress and other negative emotions - an outlet of sorts. When used in an academic sense, writing allows students to expand their vocabulary, language usage, and development as promising adults.

        However, composing words doesn't have to sound artsy or forced; it can actually be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. By jotting thoughts onto paper, one can learn a lot about herself and her writing style. Upon reading the responses of others, we begin to distinguish the thought processes of each other, and learn more about those we interact with including their beliefs, experiences, wants and fears.

        The purpose of this quest is to aid the flow of creative juices for all users including students, aspiring writers, or individuals who enjoy brain dumping. There will, of course, be rewards involved!

      Image
      • You can join at anytime and may skip any week you want.
      • This quest requires the use of a journal; to create one, visit the Journal Subforum. You may use an existing journal to fulfill weekly prose.
      • You must answer the prompt with a minimum of three sentences. This quest is to, primarily, make you think. If you do not want to put in the effort, you do not have to partake in this quest.
      • You have one week to answer the prompt. Afterwards, I will review the journal entries and hand out rewards.
      • Please answer the prompt as yourself, not as a character you have created.
      • Your journal entry must include the following (and can be personalized to your liking):
        • Date (time is optional)
        • Mood
        • Weekly prompt question in bold
        • Sample Template:
          Code:
          [b]Date:[/b]
          [b]Mood:[/b]
          [b]Journal Prompt:[/b]

          Quote:
          Example:

          January 1st, 2012
          Mood: sleepy
          What little victory has given you the most joy recently?

            Oh god, uh... I guess it can be a little victory in my eyes, but it may seem really silly to other people. I've quickly went from a size five to three in jeans, but recently I've been very happy with my appearance. I look skinnier, feel skinnier, and am able to fit into my jeans without worrying about muffin tops. I consider it a victory because I'm obsessed with my weight; I'm not happy if I don't feel thin, even though I've realized that could be problematic mentally.

      Image
      • Items such as:
          Image Image Image Image Image
          Image Image Image Image Image
      • Retros which will range from RB to FRLG.
      • Eggs from either the daycare or gacha.
      • Money of course, lol.

      Image
      • Deadline: One week after the third submission. Monday, November 26th, 2012 @ 11pm EST
        • Describe someone in your life that you could never repay for all of his/her kindness to you.

Hi, guys!
I'm really pleased that many are intrigued with this quest. :D I've decided to participate in it too, in case anyone needs ideas or inspiration.

Journal entry located here.

In your opinion, what acts can be described as courageous and why?

There are numerous acts that could be considered courageous. A particular situation that immediately comes to mind is the "Occupy _____" that have been occurring all over the nation. To be a part of something like this takes balls of steel and an incredibly strong sense of determination to stand up for what you believe in. I wouldn't be able to participate in any "Occupy ______", I'm too fearful of the consequences. However, I hold great admiration for those who have stood up against authority for the sake of their beliefs, both recently and in the past.

I believe smaller, seemingly insignificant deeds can be courageous. For example, during the Christmas event I sent apology baubles to those I've wronged. It takes courage to swallow your pride and accept responsibility for your actions regardless of the justification behind them.

- Riena:
LOL, well since saibara edited their post with their journal entry, I can't tell who submitted their post first. Rock paper scissors, perhaps?

Second/third, I think! Answer here.

EDIT: I only included one thing because I'm tired. Oh well, it's the biggest one in my opinion. ^^

In your opinion, what acts can be described as courageous and why?

I think living is the single most courageous thing you can do.

The reason it's so brave "simply" to live is that it's so hard. Obstacles to happiness, those little downers in the day, can pile up quickly until they're crushing you. I've battled with depression for a long time, but I've been pulled from the brink many times just because I'm stubborn. I don't want to take the easy road, to just float through life with my heart beating but my soul empty. That'd be far too easy to do. Giving up isn't something brave people do. I don't care about being brave, though, not exactly. I care about the challenge and about the reward at the end.

You can't be a pokemon master if you never leave your hometown, right?
