Hey, everyone! I’ve done lots of tags on this blog before, but because I decided to start over and my writing has evolved since first starting my blog, I decided to do this one. Tags are fun. . . and you’ll probably see a lot of them on this blog. Oops.
I found this tag on Newshound to Novelist! Let’s get started.
What do you write?
I don’t like to limit myself. I have so many ideas, from fantasy to contemporary to even a non-fiction novel. When I first started writing, I wrote short stories. I haven’t ventured back to those after starting a novel.
What do you mostly write about?
Things that only occur in the imagination. I mostly write fantasy because it’s fun and it allows me to be creative! I do love a good romance, though.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
It allows me to get all my thoughts onto the page and explore things that don’t exist. When I was little, I was known as the smart kid, not the creative kid. Growing up, I always felt like you could be smart or creative. There wasn’t a blurred line. I never thought I could be creative. It allows me to see that side of myself. It’s also just damn fun… sometimes.
What/Who inspired you to start/keep writing?
My first grade teacher and my mom are the two people in my life who fostered my love of reading, which in turn, sparked my love of writing. My parents keep me inspired. They’ve always been supportive. I keep writing because I want to see my name on a book one day. There’s something so difficult about describing why I keep writing. It’s just… part of me? I keep writing because why wouldn’t I be writing?
Who’s your favorite character you’ve made up?
Oh boy. I could lie and say this is like picking my favorite child, but I won’t. A name came to my mind immediately, but I won’t say it. Each character I’ve come up with has a place in my heart, but they’re not all my favorite ;D
When did you start writing?
Short stories? Middle school. Novel writing? High school. Seriously writing with a goal of publication? Spring of 2016.
First story you wrote?
I can’t remember the first short story I ever wrote, so I’ll go with novel. It was titled LUCID, and it’s actually a… “finished” novel that will only ever be seen by my CP’s eyes. Bless her heart. The same story will never be told, but the characters have my heart. Maybe one day.
Favorite story you ever wrote?
My current WIP. No competition. This is the story of my heart.
Do you have a writing schedule? Like, do you write everyday or just when you feel like it?
I try to write everyday, but I don’t have a schedule like, “Write 1,700 words daily.” That’s only during NaNoWriMo. I do the best I can and hope it sticks. Sometimes I set deadlines and maybe follow through with them.
Do you want to be published?
I tag anyone who wants to do this tag!
Until next time, Allison
