Blogging's really hard sorry for the long absence... nah I'm not sorry.                                                                                                                        - a haiku, by me.
Hello everyone! After many many months, I'm back!
Today for school I was told to write some haiku and a tanka for english. For those of you who don't know, a tanka is a Japanese style of poem invented over twelve hundred years ago. The Emperor of Japan actually still holds a tanka writing competition to celebrate the new year!
Tanka are short and lyrical poems, traditionally consisting of 31 syllables. In Japanese, tanka follow a pattern of syllables like haiku - 5, 7, 5, 7, 7, 5. A tanka doesn't rhyme, but it makes use of metaphor, similies, and other things.
Here is an example of a tanka, written by Komachi Ono in the mid tenth century AD.
The blossom’s tint is washed away By heavy showers of rain; My charms, which once I prized so much, Are also on the wan…

Historical Interviews #1 - J.R.R Tolkien

Taken from the J.R.R Tolkien Facebook page
Hello fellow Lord of the Rings fans! (looking at you Middle Earth Musician :D)

Recently, I came across a special device while clearing out my attic. It looked very much like the one ring. I put it on, and found I had the ability to call upon any deceased person from the past, and speak to them. So naturally (as I was listening to the Fellowship of the Ring audiobook at the time) I decided to call upon J.R.R Tolkien, and interview him. This is what happened.

Me: Hello J.R.R Tolkien!

Tolkien: Hello [Psylova], and please, just call me Tolkien.

Me: Why Tolkien? Wouldn't you rather be called John?

Tolkien: It's only for the purposes of this interview. I'm very proud of my family name! It comes from the German word "tollk├╝hn", which means foolhardy! And calling me John would be boring now, wouldn't it?

Me: Okay then Tolkien! Well, I would first like to talk to you about your early life. What was it like?

Tolkien: Ah, well, my…

Modern Mozart

Hello again everybody! It's me, Psylova!

I'm back to tell you all about a goal I am working towards. You see, I have always had an interest in music. And I don't mean modern songs about how awesome the singer is, but actual, genuine music. Music that tells a story (preferably a story without swear words), and gets your imagination going!

Well, since I was little, I've been coming up with my own little pieces of music and singing them happily. Recently however, my dream of making my own music has become possible.

About a year or so ago, I discovered my favourite music composer. If you were to ask me who my favourite musician was, I wouldn't say Beyonce or Kanye West or Michael Jackson, I would say to you, loud and proud, Antti Martikainen! He's a finnish composer who makes his own epic music and releases them in albums. Along with him, my favourites are Derek and Brandon Fiechter, Brunuhville, Peter Crowley Fantasy Dream and Adrien von Ziegler.

Antti Martikaine…


This morning, my sister showed me a post on this blog:

This is what it said:
Dear Writers, (Warning: This is a rant).
  Before we start, I want to say that this started out as a light-hearted rant, and it turned into a full-blown rant, and then it turned very serious. This is something that has been on my heart all week... 

       Have you ever read a book that was good? 

       No, I mean really, really, REALLY good! And while you're reading it, you're think something along the lines of this: This book is SO good, I'm going to recommended it to EVERYONE!
     And then you turn the page and the writer starts dropping f-bombs. And you're just sitting there like, 
     Well, thank you, dear writer, now I won't recommended this book to half of the people I was thinking of! 
        We all have that one book. *Cough, cough* The Fault in Our Stars... 

         And look, I'm not going to tell any of you what's too much and too far in, er…

Another tag post. Great...

So, my little sister Ralraymee has tagged me into another tag. I literally already did this in march THIS YEAR. But hey, whatever. Let's do this!


Thank the person who tagged you - Do I have to?Make a picture for the tag post - Here it is:
Tag three people - I'm not gonna do this, simply because everyone I know has been tagged.
Alright. So, now I gotta answer some questions. Here they are:

1. Who's your favourite Author? That's easy - J.K Rowling. I love the Harry Potter series! I listen to them before I go to bed pretty much every night, and I can even quote random things from it... I'm such a nerd...
I also love the writing style of Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon. It's awesome that he was able to write a bestseller at such a young age. He could do it, and so can I!

2. What's your favourite book? (I know I'm mean; I'm only letting you choose one) Is this question really necessary after how I answered question 1?
3. What's your favourit…

Of Rising Authors

For those of you who didn't know, I love building worlds in my head. I love coming up with unique stories and characters to inhabit the whole worlds that I build in my head. I got my inspiration for this from J.R.R.Tolkien, who built an entire history for Middle Earth (or as it is actually named: Arda... I am such a nerd), right back up to the creation of the world! This was further enhanced by George R.R. Martin (apparently you need two R's in your name to write high fantasy) and his world of Westeros (and Essos) in his book series titled A Song of Ice and Fire).

I especially love Martin's idea of the 'Others' (more commonly known as 'White Walkers' in the TV adaptation of his books, Game of Thrones), and how they are kept in a far northern land by a large wall made of ice. This wall is manned by the Night's Watch, a group dedicated to keeping out the White Walkers.

For ages I have been trying to make up worlds and stories at that level. Is it hard? Y…



I haven't been on this blog since I was, like, ten. Oh the memories! I was so adorable back then! Anyway, Hello everyone! I'm Psylova.

As 2017 starts, I thought it might be a good time to revisit my old blog (and because my little sister is posting her story on her blog, and I thought "I'm gonna post my fifty billion stories on my blog too!"). So here I am again. Welcome everyone, to Silver Bullet 101!
