Blog Update #12: Let the Battle…Commence!
Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations
I hope you all are still doing OK in spite of the world devolving into utter chaos, but hopefully, at least for the sake of our mental health, I can maybe bring you all some good information today.
A Regular Schedule
I announced it previously on a few different social media platforms but not yet formally on here. As of now, both of my blogs will be adhering to a regular posting schedule, and hopefully one that allows me to make some quality content while also not making me worry about putting out too much a week.
Animated Observations: Posts will appear on Sunday and Wednesday, and from now onward will exclude any updates.
Solidly Liquid: Posts will appear on Tuesdays.
Most of the time I have spent blogging has been on my own sites, but since I do want to try and grow my audience, I have decided to start posting my content elsewhere. This is why I have decided to start posting my stuff on Medium. This way, if you all or anyone else uses that as their preferred reading platform, they can still read it there.
“Fusion Fight”: An OWLS Short Story Competition
This has been in the making for a while, and I am happy to announce that, on behalf of the OWLS 2020 Virtual Convention. For those who don’t know, OWLS is a group of bloggers dedicated to making a space online where people can feel safe from discrimination based on religion, sex, gender, race, etc.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many in-person anime and pop culture conventions have been canceled or shifted online and reduced drastically in scale. As a result, we at OWLS wanted to help give back to the community during these times. My contribution is a for fun short story writing competition, the rules for which are and entry form are here.
I encourage everyone to read the full rules as its only about a page and a half, but short summary: “Fusion Fight” consists of every writer submitting one 500 word or less short story while combining two or more major genres as defined on NYC Midnight’s website. The goal of the competition is mostly fun and to see who can be the most creative.
Judging will be done by myself, Lita of LitaKinoAnimeCorner and Author Ashley Capes. The competition will be one round. First place will receive 20 dollars U.S. and second will receive 10. The top 3 participants will be featured on Animated Observations. If you have any other questions about the competition, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM me on Twitter.
