Le Rules

  2. Nominate 5-10 blogs (links too!).
  3. Answer the 13 questions given, and give the definition of your favorite (or just beautiful) word.
  4. Ask 13 questions of your own. They must all be about writing, reading, books or book characters. Make them as creative/wacky/selcouth as can be!
  5. Post the rules and the picture in your post!

Le Questions

  1. When did you start writing/blogging?
    I’ve been writing (aka making up stories) since I was really little, and I started blogging a year or two ago. 🙂
  2. What was your motive to start writing/blogging?
    I started writing because I had so many ideas whirling inside my head that I had to do something with them! And I started blogging to share bits of my crazy self with the world! 😉
  3. What is you favorite genre(s) to read/write?
    Although I love many genres, fantasy and historical fiction are my favorites.
  4. Is there a genre you just cannot stand?
    Science Fiction (minus Star Wars, mind you!) is a genre I’ve never really enjoyed. Some authors can pull it off, but most of the time the stories are dull and hard to follow.
  5. Who is your favorite character that you have made up yourself?
    I love all of my characters, but my favorite would have to Andrew, the friend and future husband of the MC, Alexandra, in a story I wrote a long time ago but never finished.
  6. Who is your favorite character of another author?
    That’s so hard! I’m going to have to say…um…Felicity, the American Girl. I read her books when I was little and I still love them to this day.
  7. Are you a pantser or planner?
    Although I’m more in the middle, I lean more towards the planner side. 😉
  8. What is your favorite thing about reading/writing/blogging? (This could be a feeling, inspiration, etc.)
    My favorite thing about reading is that I can live so many lives and go on so many adventures – something I could never do in ordinary life.
    My favorite thing about writing is being able to capture the ideas swirling in my head and to write them out and craft a story or novel.

    And my favorite thing about blogging is that there are actually people out there who sit down and read about me and my crazy rambles! XD I ❤ you guys. 🙂
  9. In what kind of working environment do you process thoughts well and come up with your best ideas?
    In bed, curled up under the covers as I try to fall asleep. 😉
  10. What is your favorite quote?
    “Be someone who makes everyone feel like a someone.”
  11. What is a reading/writing achievement you are especially proud of?
    Completing Camp NaNoWriMo. Even though my wordcount was only 10k, I still had a great time and was able to stretch myself to limits I’ve never known I could go.
  12. What is something a non-writer/blogger will never understand?
    Just how hard writing and blogging actually is! It is NOT at all easy, as we bloggers and writers well know.
  13. Lastly, what is your favorite word, and why?
    Opulent – I love how it sounds when you say it.

Here’s the definition (from the Internet):

op·u·lent
ˈäpyələnt/

adjective

1. ostentatiously rich and luxurious or lavish.

2. wealthy.
