I’m a terrible person because I totally forgot to finish the work for Week Twelve. I got the 12 stars worth of assignments done, but then completely forgot to do the rest. I’ll just quickly sum up my twelfth week in this class and then move on to the next one I guess 🙁
So we didn’t have any Daily Creates this week, so I don’t have anything to post for that here. However, I would like to say how weird it was not to have any. I was a little confused about it at first, but then I just kinda figured that it was because we submitted our own the week before. I figured we were having a break from there while our suggestions got sorted.
This past week I did notice my suggestion pop up on the Daily Create Twitter. I was super happy to see it! I was also a little disappointed that it was during a week where nobody was assigned to do any (a week where nobody will actually do any). It was still cool to see mine on there, and a few people did participate!

For this week’s Fan Fiction assignments, I did a total of four assignments (13 stars worth) for my novel choice The Book of the Unnamed Midwife.
The first one I did was a 5 star assignment, the GIF Alternate Book Cover. I chose this one because I thought it would be fun to do, but I ended up not liking it very much. It was hard to find a clip that I would want to use for it, but I ended up with a scene from Mad Max because she was very androgynous looking, just like the Unnamed Midwife. I also changed the coloring of the clip to a blue hue so that it matched the book a bit better. I also chose this scene since it gave a feeling of abandonment which was a major background theme of the book. Either she was getting abandoned, or she was abandoning others.
(I’m not gonna post it here because I’m embarrassed about the outcome of all my hard work TT^TT)
The second assignment I did was a 3 star assignment, the Pop Quiz Assignment. I actually think this one was my favorite to do! I went onto Quiz Maker and made a small little personality quiz based on the book. There are 4 “personalities” you could get: The Midwife, the Survivalist (like the character Chicken), the Mother, or a Member of the Congregation. I made the quiz 5 questions long, all of them pertaining to things that happened in the book. How the quiz taker chooses their answers would determine what kind of character they would be in the book. It was a lot of fun to make, so got check it out!
The third assignment I did was a 2 star assignment, the What’s the Meme? Assignment. This one was fun to do as well! I thought about this one a lot since there was so much you can do with this. I ended up going with the theme of the men trying to steal each others women and how, because she dressed like a man, they were scared she would try to do the same. They considered her competition (and in a way she actually was considering she was also bisexual), so I thought it would be funny.
The fourth assignment was a 3 star assignment, the Playlist Poetry Assignment. This one was also a lot fun to do. I actually enjoy these assignments a lot where we create a message of sorts through playlists. I’m actually quite terrible at poetry, but I really wanted to give it a shot. I just hope the message I was trying to send is at least somewhat clear 🙂
What the poem is supposed to say:
She’s got the look
She moves in mysterious ways
She is a maniac
Janie’s got a gun
She’s not afraid
We all got problems
I’m not the only one
We’ll never have to say goodbye again.
Question of the Week:
Look to your right. The thing you see is the only weapon you’ll have during the End. How will you use it to survive?
Well….. I have an inflated dolphin that I won from a County Fair I went to last year. Yes, it has survived this long. However, not super helpful in the apocalypse. I may be able to use it as a pillow or a cuddle buddy, but it wouldn’t help much when trying to fight off zombies or aliens or some kind of disease. I could probably pop it and use the plastic for something, but I honestly don’t think I would survive long enough to figure it out lol
Well that concludes Week 12 of The END!! Since this is a bit late I can share that yesterday, the 17th, was my 22nd birthday!!! Honestly, the fact it was coming up was distracting me a whole lot this past week. I did have a great day with my family though, so I’m happy! 🙂
