I did a tag thing and answered all the questions and was about to tag people at the very end when my internet decided to go kaput and I lost everything.
I am now saving everything I write as soon as I write it.
But I’ll stop saying ‘save’ now because I can see how that could get annoying.
I was tagged by the lovely SarinaLangerWriter to do the Confessions of a Writer tag. If you haven’t guessed, it’s basically some questions about writing. I thought it might be fun, so here we are.
- Please link back to A Little Bookish, A Little Writerly’s post, so that the original rules are always accessible to anyone who is curious and wants to participate! (Check!)
- Acknowledge the person who tagged you in your post. (Check!)
- Tag your friends and fellow writers – it’s up to you how many! (At the end.)
When did you first start writing?
I don’t know when I learned my alphabet and all, but I didn’t start writing non-stop until the week before I turned fifteen. So I guess you could say I was fourteen.
Was being a writer something you always aspired to be?
Oh god, no.
What genre do you write?
Action-adventure, with some drama and romance mixed in and comedy wherever it fits. 9 times out of 10 my stories fall onto a scale of Contemporary to High Fantasy, usually somewhere in between.
Can you tell us a little about your current work in progress?
Which one? Hahaha…no but seriously. I’ve got several fiction pieces, including short stories, novellas, novels, and book series. I also have several scripts including short films, feature-length films, television shows, comic strips, and graphic novels. But if there’s going to be a focus on only one for this tag, then I suppose I’ll use my longest project: a four-book YA action-adventure series.
When did you start working on this project?
I was fourteen, a week from fifteen.
What was your first piece that you can remember writing? What was it about?
Three princesses went on a quest to find a cure to save their sick sister. Sixth grade. I was twelve.
What’s the best part about writing?
When people get really excited about your stories and characters.
What’s the worst part about writing?
When it stops.
What’s the name of your favorite character and why? (This can be from a book by another author or from your own work. Book crushes are perfectly acceptable here as well.)
My main character for my main series is definitely my favourite. I find that the farther I develop a character, the more I love them. She’s the oldest, deepest one.
How much time a day/week do you get to write?
I write whatever I can whenever I can. I’m very bad at actually sitting down and writing for hours. I’ll write a paragraph or so while waiting for a movie to start at the movie theatre, I’ll write a few more on the bus, and a chapter at the coffee shop. I’ve written in some pretty weird places before. I’ve written in a funeral home, I’ve written in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, I’ve written in a fancy restaurant while waiting for food.
When is the best time for you to write (morning or night)?
Early morning but still before going to sleep. Is that morning or night?
Did you go to college for writing? Or if you haven’t been to college yet, do you plan to?
I’m currently in my last year studying Creative Writing in the UK.
What bothers you more: spelling errors, punctuation errors, or grammar errors?
What is the best writing advice that anyone has given you?
What advice would you give to another writer?
Drop the pen and run.
Just kidding, just kidding. But seriously.
What are your favorite writing sites or blogs that you turn to for help, tips or encouragement?
Besides writing, what else do you enjoy doing? What are your hobbies?
What is the best book you’ve read this year?
What is the best movie you’ve seen this year?
What is your favorite book or series of all time?
Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore, although I haven’t read it since I was in high school so if I were to read it now my opinion may be different.
Who is your favorite author?
What are your plans for the rest of the year in terms of your writing?
Just to do it I guess.
Where else can we find you online?
Twitter and Facebook are in the sidebar.
I am tagging:
And anyone who wants to do it.
