Random Tag

First off, thank you so much to Acacia for nominating me for this tag! I’ve been on a family vacation the past two weeks and have not been able to post anything, but now I’m back so you can expect the normal schedule (if you can consider my random and irregular postings a “schedule”)

Rules for the tags:

1 – Thank the person who nominated you

2 – Answer the questions from the person who nominated you

3 – nominate 5 people and ask them 10 questions

So now the questions.

1 – What’s one of your favorite blog posts from your own blog?

My favorite blog post from my own blog is my latest short story, “How Long Have I Been Here?”. I like it because the story is told from the mind of a submarine diver who has had a terrible accident in the submarine, has no idea where she is, and doesn’t realize mermaids are attempting a rescue mission. I feel like I really branched out on my creativity for that story.

2 – What’s blog post from your blog that you’d redo?

A blog post I’d redo is the short story, “Kymbre, Warrior Queen of Kala’an”. I liked the prompt of the story that I based it from, but after thinking on it some more, I realize I could have done way more things than I did with it. It also didn’t really make since to me, since I’m the author. Oops . . .

3 – Who got you into blogging?

My amazing writing teacher, Julien Jamar, was the one who got me into blogging. I had been thinking of starting a blog before hand, but she really helped me realize how beneficial and fun a blog is.

4 – Who’s your favorite author?

Oh, gosh. This one is so hard! I definitely agree with Acacia on this one, God is the best and most creative author. But, if we’re talking about earthly authors, I think J. K. Rowling, C. S. Lewis, and Frank Peretti are great authors. I read their books frequently.

5 – Do you own any plants?

I do not own any plants currently. I used to have a Venus Fly Trap, but after a while it died because I either drowned it or gave it the wrong water. Whoops . . .

6 – What’s your favorite flower?

My favorite flowers are Tulips.

7 – What takes up most of your time?

During the school year, school takes up most of my time. But during those rare summer and winter breaks, writing takes up a lot of my time.

8 – What do you use to procrastinate the most with?

With my writing, I normally procrastinate with trying to develop my characters. If I’m honest with myself, my characters are pretty rounded characters and I know more about them than I can explain to someone. It seems like I am always trying to develop my characters more and more and actually writing and plotting the story less and less.

9 – Are you more of a loud person or a quiet person?

I am more of a quiet person. If I’m with the right kind of people, I can be loud. But mostly I’m quiet.

10 – Are you tired of me tagging you for stuff?

I enjoy being tagged for things right now. It might get tiring later on, but right now I enjoy it. Since I’m new to the “blogging” thing, I enjoy seeing the different tags and seeing different blogs through the people who have been tagged.

On to the third rule.

My nominees are:

Riven’s Journal

The Poem Zone

Putting My Feet In The Dirt

My questions are:

1 – Do you have any pets? If so, what are their names?

2 – What is your favorite book to read?

3 – What is the “perfect” weather for you to sit down and blog?

4 – What is your favorite season of the year?

5 – What is your favorite movie or TV show?

6 – What is your favorite memory?

7 – Are you a dog or a cat person?

8 – Where is your favorite place to blog?

9 – What is your ideal vacation?

10 – Do you enjoy sports or are you an artsy person? (Or are you both?)

Anyway, that’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed!

Love from the Library,
