Chapter 12: The Triwizard Tournament 

"Drenched and spluttering, Ron staggered sideways into Harry, just as a second water bomb dropped - narrowly missing Hermione, it burst at Harry's feet sending a wave o cold water over his trainers and socks."

Chapter 11 - Aboard the Hogwarts Express

"Amos Diggory's head was sitting in the middle of the flames like a large bearded egg.  It was talking very fast, completely unperturbed by the sparks flying around it and the flames licking its ears."

yikes! It's been a while since HP chapters! But I went to see The Cursed Child this week and now all I want to do is draw Harry Potter!

Happy new year everyone!!! Hope you all had a lovely christmas and are all geared up for 2016! 

2015 was a bit of a weird year for me, with lot of changes and new things going on in my life.  I quite like consistency and tend to freak out when confronted with massive changes.  But, I reckon I've weathered them pretty well and things are looking pretty good. 

So here's some fun stuff that happened in 2015 - while glide over the rubbish stuff cause rubbish stuff is rubbish. 

1) I graduated form my masters degree with a distinction in musicology. I'm really proud of that one.  I worked my socks off for it and so refuse to be modest about it!! 

2) I started a new job.  After trying very hard to find a graduate job I couldn't exactly afford to eb unemployed for much longer, so I am now working in a chocolate shop! don't get me wrong, it's fabulous! And I work with some truly lovely people.  If I had to find a temporary job then I'm glad it was this one!

3) I applied for PhD.  I don't know if I've been successful but at least I applied! I'm excited about that. 

4) I completed NANOWRIMO!  I've been wanting to do it for years but it never seemed to be the right time. I thoroughly enjoyed it this time though. The only things was that even after 50,000 words, my novel still its' complete.  SO that's why as of two days ago, I started JANOWRIMO. I want to see this thing finished! 

5) I also finished Inktober. That was a lot of fun. I didn't post anything on DA for fear of annoying people but it's on my tumblr and instagram pages ;) 

6) I played my first video game since I was a kid.  My sister came home for the summer and told me that for every 500 words of my dissertation I did , she would let me play Bioshock.  I didn't know what it was and wasn't that interested, but my sister has good taste so I gave it ago.  I've never finished an essay so fast in my life! It's so good.  So maybe 2016 will be the year of the video game for me.  Do I need that in my life? Do I have time?! I don't know, but if there are more games like that out there, then sign me the hell up! Any suggestions for good video games for newbies? 

7) I read a bunch of fabulous books.  Wise Man's Fear, by Patrick Rothfuss; Soul Music my Terry Pratched (the first TP novel I've ever read - why have I not read them before!?); and i've just start The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (so far so excellent!). 


And lots of other lovely things happened but I won't bore you with the extended list.  I'm still working hard on improving my art and getting it is as good as I can, so as always comments and criticism are encouraged!! I value all of your support and help :D 

I hope your 2016 brings you lots fun and awesomeness!
