Q&A


From Sarah V.:

Q: Do you listen to "secular" music?
A: Nope, not really. The only really "secular" music that I listen to would be songs off soundtracks that end up on my computer and, like, Good Time. :D
Q: What's the farthest you've been away from home? (like how many miles)

A: Uh... across the country. =D
Q: Do you like Lord of the Rings?? If so, who is your FAVORITE character?!

A: Of course!! =D Sam, Aragorn, Arwen, and Eowyn are my faves. ;)
Q: favorite breakfast food?

A: PASTRIES. lol which I barely ever get. =P So let's go with my potato genius breakfast... ;D
Q: how old are you? (although I'm imagining you as being between the ages of 14 and 17)

A: At this point in history, I'm not answering personal questions like that. ;)
Q: any siblings??

A: Maybe, maybe not...

A: Yes, I do. I want to become a graphic designer.

Q: where would you most like to live (or visit)?

A: NEW ZEALAND. :D
Q: When did you really start writing? What do you enjoy most about it?
A: I started writing my first book when I was ten. (I really have no idea why...) I enjoy creating characters and plots that I enjoy and aren't stupid, and making them do what I want them to do!! :D
Q: What time zone are you in? (I didn't think this would be TOO personal of a question to ask...but if you don't feel comfortable answering it, I understand. :))

A: I guess I won't answer, then. Thanks for understanding. ;)
Q: How long will it be before your knee injury is healed up completely?

A: That depends. They're not sure yet... =P
Q: What made you decide to start blogging??

A: Well, I had this friend who had a blog, and I was like, "Hey, this would be a great way to share my stories!" So here I am. (:

From Layla:

Q: What is the most offensive movie you've ever watched? (Hehe. Mine would definitely be Waking Ned Devine:) I had to look away for half of the movie;))

Q: What character in one of your books do you most relate to?

A: No brainer. Connie. ;)
Q: What book character do you most relate to?

Q: Have you ever cried when reading a book? If so, what book?

A: Yes. My own. Connie in particular...
Q: Same as ^ but with movie.

Q: Are you more of a tomboy or girly girl?

A: I am both, in different respects. I don't wear makeup, don't wear designer clothes, don't have an iPod or even a phone, and yet my hair's not cut short like a boy's, I don't hate wearing nice clothes, and I don't always want to run outside and climb a tree.

Q: What do you do for inspiration.

A: Well, usually I read my other stories and look at photos on pinterest. But if I'm REALLY dead, then I stop writing altogether for awhile. If I don't stress myself out about it, eventually an idea will come that fits together perfectly for my story. :)

A: Maybe, maybe not.
Q: How long have you been a "storyteller"?

A: Since I was ten. Err, you mean on the blogger world? Well, that was since last year. :D
Q: When did you decide that you wanted to write?

A: I don't know. I was ten and I just randomly started writing... =D
Q: Would you ever think of revealing your name and age?

A: I think I would like to, but I'm not sure. ;)
Q: What is the most annoying song?

A: OH. MY. WORD. I hate annoying songs!! OK, probably the two most annoying songs are like that Julian Smith song (you know, the crazy YouTube guy??) that's like "Stuck inside your Head", err, something like that, and then that Anthem Lights song that goes like "I'm out of my mind mind mind mind mind mind mind mind mind mind..." I. HATE. THAT. SONG!!!!!!
Q: How did you find out about the 'blogging world'?

A: My friend had a blog. ;)

From Sara H (whose blog address I can't find right now):

Q: Do you do your designing completely from scratch or do you use some kind of program?
A: I use a program called GIMP, but I usually put it all together by scratch. GIMP is just my tool. :)

Q: Why did you start blogging?
A: So I could post my stories here. :)
Q: how would you describe your style in 3 words?

A: Comfortable, bright, modest. :)
Q: How did you gain followers? 

A: Well, sometimes I used to feel like I needed more followers, right? But now I just want to make new friends. I love meeting new people. :) Ways to meet new people are to check out new blogs, either by clicking somebody's button on a sidebar or from somebody's blogger profile. ;)
Q: What is your favorite piece of clothing you own?

A: Probably my gray knitted Bearpaw boots. ;)

From A Silent Reader:

Q: If it's not too personal, what is the movie about that you are making with your friends?

A: Oh, it's about these medieval people. I'm a milkmaid. =D
Q: Would you consider yourself to be a brave person?

A: No, I wouldn't. I can get really shy. But I make myself do things. :)
Q: What do you do when you're bored?

A: First, I start singing or humming to myself. Then twiddling with my fingers. Then kicking my feet.
Q: Can you speak another language besides English? If so, what? 

A: I speak a little Spanish. iHola!
Q: Are there any tips you have for new writers?

A: First off, don't try and copy somebody else's writing style just because you like it. Do your own. Write what's easy for you to write, the way that you normally do. Second, don't copy peoples' ideas.  There's always a way to see a cool idea and turn it into another, but don't use the same exact one. Third, make sure you research things about your novel. That's something I have to work on, but it's really important. Like my friend and I were going to write a book together, and she came up for this address for our character in New Jersey, complete with the area code. "Is that the real area code?" I asked. "No," she laughed. "Then we can't use it," I pointed out. She wasn't very happy about the idea, but it's true. Make sure you get your facts right. If you're a young author, you're probably not going to be able to travel to wherever your novel is supposed to be placed at, but ask around, look things up on the internet, find a dictionary! It's really not that hard. ;) And last, but certainly not least, make sure that when you make your characters, they seem real. What's handy for me is making a little bio about them in a notebook, and just adding random things about them, like, "they think they're fat," or something like that. Just a fear, something that makes them more real in your eyes. You probably won't use everything that you put down, but if the character feels real to you, they'll seem more real to the people reading it.
Q: Is there an easy way that you have found of staying true to yourself online?

A: Staying true to myself? Well, first off, I want to tell you guys that I didn't really say anything about my Christianity on here until I really felt convicted by God to do so. And I just try to be myself. Everybody says that, "Be yourself," but sometimes it's not as easy as it looks. But that's what I just try to do. :)
