My WIP As Incorrect Quotes And Memes // What Do You Mean I Could Use This Time To Write Instead THIS IS A LOT MORE FUN AND LESS STRESSFUL OK

As I’m pretty close to finishing my current WIP, what better way to spend my time than making a ‘incorrect quotes’ post? ‘Actually finishing the thing’, you say? Pff don’t be silly!

Also I guess you can say there are kind of spoilers in here, especially for the main romance but? 1) honestly the main romance is probably obvious for the reader once you start the book 2) who knows if this ever even gets published? 3) if it DOES get published who will remember this post 4) I wanted to include these quotes/memes ok pls let me

OH! If you’re wondering where some of these are coming from… I mean you could ask but there’s a 9/10 chance I have no idea as I just looked at tumblr and the like and they often don’t cite a source so sorry sdkj I only know the John Mulaney and the memes (though to be fair maybe the ones I don’t know are memes too?? who knows) But if you really want to know I’m sure that if you google it you’ll find it? That’s how I found out lots of times

Yong-sun An is worried about a lot of things, but at the top of his list? The future. Worried his anxiety will get in the way of everything he does, he has no clue what he’ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because that’s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time it’s bound to go wrong, right?

Meanwhile, his not-best friend (except he is his best friend) Drew suddenly starts to act weird. Yong-sun has no idea how to help, but he has a feeling that it has to do with the mysterious text messages Drew has been getting.

Drew: looking back, I have no regrets.

Yong-sun: You should.

Yong-sun: I would like to propose…

Drew: *eyes widens*

Yong-sun: …an idea.

Drew: *disappointed* oh.

Someone: are you nervous?

Yong-sun and Hye-su: About what? But yeah.

Hye-su: I have edge.

Reyna: you really don’t. You are literally the most wide eyed person I ever seen, you have the face of a lamb.

Drew: I like you

Yong-sun: Unrealistic. Unbelievable. Lies. False.

Reyna: I am very small, and I have no money.

Reyna: so you can imagine the kind of stress I’m under.

Hye-su is also very small but she knows how to save money, meanwhile Reyna:

Drew: well, I guess you could say that “I’ve fallen for you”

Yong-sun: you just fell down seven flights of stairs, how are you even alive-

Reyna: if you had ten chocolate cookies and someone takes half of them away, what will they have?

Drew: a broken hand.

Drew: Yong-sun is on holiday with his parents in Seoul so while he’s gone I’m gonna cut the sleeves off of all my shirts

Hye-su: why???

Drew: he’s pretty much 85% of my impulse control

Yong-sun’s dad: I’m gonna do it.

Yong-sun: no please.

Yong-sun’s dad: I’m- I’m gonna.

Yong-sun: DAD

Yong-sun’s dad:

Yong-sun:

Yong-sun’s dad: YEET.

basically the popcorn scene if Yong-sun’s mom hadn’t woken up

Reyna: oh so when crows remember people who wronged them and hold grudges, it’s “intelligent” and “really cool”.

Reyna: but when I do it I’m “petty” and “need to let it go.”

Reyna: how’s the most beautiful person in the world doing today?

Hye-su: I don’t know how are yo-

Drew: *from across the room* I’M DOING GREAT THANKS.

Drew: I ain’t talking.

Reyna: we have ways of making people talk *cuts a piece of cake*

Drew: can I have some?

Reyna: cake is for talkers.


Drew: When have I done anything rash or irresponsible?

Yong-sun: I keep a list. it’s alphabetised.

Yong-sun: are you flirting with me?

Drew: have been for the past year thanks for noticing

basically THE MEME that sums up the main romance dsnjbgh

Yes I made my own meme because I’m extra like that

Drew: *about the Colosseum* it’s kind of underwhelming :/

Hye-su: 

Hye-su: time to die

* not an incorrect quote, Drew literally says that and this is basically Hye-su’s face I know this is technically ‘polite cat’ but honestly it also looks like its screaming on the inside??

There’s a good chance I might do a part two at some point and there’s DEFINITELY a John Mulaney-themed one on the way, but this is it for now before I get carried away dsjbg I just really love incorrect quotes ok?

Anyway I hope this was a fun way for you to get to know my characters a little better? Also I’m honestly thinking of turning this into a tag? So if you want to do this consider yourself tagged. The rules are very simple:

me: *has no energy or time to write because of essays and stress*
me: when you DO find the time and energy you have to write your review ok!!
me: ok
me: *ends up writing this post instead*

uhhhh so yeah i have no excuse?? This idea popped into my head last week but I had no time and energy to blog (thus why I disappeared, which I kind of saw happening because once I start to stress I just,, drop everything else in my life and focus on that one thing which is usually school which I really hate and want to change about myself because I love blogging) so now that I finally did have time and energy?? Yeah I wanted to put it into a post I was really excited about. That said, I really need to write that review because the book came out on Thursday and I feel like a bad blogger woops

ANYWAY. I looked around the Internet to see if this didn’t exist yet and couldn’t find anything so here we are! This tag is fairly simple: you answer the questions with gifs. So let’s get started!

The Rules

💛 Thank the person who tagged you
💛 Credit the creator of this tag (me!) and link back to this post so I can find out allll about your WIPs!
💛 Try to limit the amount of gifs you use per question – I’d say maybe stick to five or less but I’m not the boss of you

Sum up your WIP in 4 gifs

 

 

Bonus:

This… is not just an excuse for me to use gay gifs… why would you think that…

Time to introduce your main characters!

Yong-sun

an accurate representation of Yong-sun during senior year

Basically Yong-sun is a combination of Chidi and Amy

Drew

this gif is PERFECT because drew likes to think he’s all tough and ready to fight but in reality he’s just a smol cute bean who couldn’t hurt a fly

the true otp of my wip: drew + food

Reyna

fun fact i picture cierra ramirez as reyna so double win

if you don’t watch b99 first of what are you doing with your life y are you even reading this post just leave my blog and go watch b99 ok second the context of this gif is that she’s told to be careful because that sauce is hot

Reyna is that friend who will immediately text you a ‘like my post’ message

Hye-su

Hye-su most of the time

Hye-su when someone says things like ‘that’s not art’ or ‘i could do that’

How would your main character react in a crisis?

Actually this is Yong-sun all the time so

If you were to meet your main characters, how would you react?

And if you were to meet your antagonist?*

* No I did not include these questions so I could do this meme?? Don’t be ridiculous

Is there any romance in your WIP? How would you sum it up in gifs?

I mean,, this is it. For almost the entire book. At first the flirting is subtle, but then,, Romeo and Juliet gets quoted and the other person is still like,,

How do other characters feel about this ship?

How do you want people to react reading your WIP?

The lovely Kat @ Life and Other Disasters has created another awesome writing tag, this time Valentine’s Day themed (Happy Valentine’s Day btw love you all)! Thank you so much for tagging me Kat ❤ If you’re not familiar with her blog please go check it out!

RULES

💛 Provide a short description of your WIP/story!
💛Don’t use just one character for all answers if possible!

DESCRIPTION OF MY WIP

Yong-sun An is worried about a lot of things, but at the top of his list? The future. Worried his anxiety will get in the way of everything he does, he has no clue what he’ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because that’s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time it’s bound to go wrong, right?

Meanwhile, his not-best friend (except he is his best friend) Drew suddenly starts to act weird. Yong-sun has no idea how to help, but he has a feeling that it has to do with the mysterious text messages Drew has been getting.

As I said before in the All Hallows Write Tag and the Winter is Here Write Tag, this summary is not complete, but I really like what I have so far. What you need to know besides this summary: there are two other main characters, Reyna and Hye-su. They are Yong-sun’s other friends. One day I’ll write the perfect summary that also includes them.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

If there is a couple in your WIP, what are their plans for Valentine’s Day? And if there is no couple in your WIP, is there someone your main character would like to spend Valentine’s Day with?

There is a couple in my WIP, but they get together later on and I guess it’s kinda spoilery? So I’ll be a bit vague. One of them would be incredibly cheesy and get a huge bouqet of roses, a huge bear and chocolates, while the other just gets embarrassed and throws a more personal gift at his head*

* Obviously not literally

Who has no shame about going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day alone?

Reyna. 100% Reyna. She has no shame when it comes to a lot of things and just generally has this ‘idgaf’ attitude. Not that she doesn’t give one at all, but definitely not about Valentine’s Day.

One of your characters requests a song on the radio for their crush! Which song and for which character would they pick it?

I had trouble choosing between Reyna and Drew, but Drew wouldn’t actually dare to request a song on the radio (though he’d pretend he would)- he’d just blast it himself out of his crush’ window. Reyna on the other hand would definitely request a song on the radio and she’d pick Mary Lambert’s I’d Be Your Wife. And who’d they pick it for?

Is there a character who would organise an Anti-Valentine’s Day party?

I can see Reyna throw a Galentine’s party, which can sort of be an Anti-Valentine’s Day party I guess. Though considering she’d invite her crush it would kind of still be a Valentine’s Day party

Reyna @ herself

What romantic gesture would swoon your main character?

It really doesn’t take much tbh – like one rose and the boy is a blushing mess

an accurate representation of Yong-sun

Which character would buy a bunch of red roses and hand them out to strangers on the street, just to make their day?

Hye-su without a doubt. She’s just smol cinnamon roll

What are your main character’s favourite Valentine’s movies? (Note: Valentine’s movies don’t have to be romantic!)

Okay so my WIP takes place in 2015 but can we just go to the future* and say Love, Simon because I can’t think of any other Valentine’s movie that Yong-sun would like

* I wish I could just go to the future pls I need to see this movie now

Who is ready for the February 15th, just to get all the chocolate on sale?

Without a doubt: Drew. Boy loves food, especially candy and especially chocolate

an accurate representation of Drew

Is there a character who never spends Valentine’s Day alone aka always has some sort of date?

Nope – unless we count some of their parents lol

Bonus: Create a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for one or several of your characters!

So uhh I got a bit carried away and created a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for all four of my main characters haha. In order: Yong-sun, Drew, Hye-su and Reyna

Thank you again Kat for creating such a fun tag! Every time I do one of these I get to know my characters a little better and love them even more than I already did, so of course I’m grateful for that!

DESCRIPTION OF MY WIP

Yong-sun An is worried about a lot of things, but at the top of his list? The future. Worried his anxiety will get in the way of everything he does, he has no clue what he’ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because that’s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time it’s bound to go wrong, right?

Meanwhile, his not-best friend (except he is his best friend) Drew suddenly starts to act weird. Yong-sun has no idea how to help, but he has a feeling that it has to do with the mysterious text messages Drew has been getting.

As I said before in the All Hallows Write Tag, this summary is not complete, but I really like what I have so far. What you need to know besides this summary: there are two other main characters, Reyna and Hye-su. They are Yong-sun’s other friends.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Which protagonist is most likely to break into Christmas song first? Bonus: What song?

Definitely Reyna. She’s one of those ‘Christmas begins in November’ people while the others aren’t really, nor are Yong-sun and Hye-su that likely to break into song in the first place unless they’re doing karaoke. The first song she’d sing? All I Want For Christmas is You without a doubt, though she’d sing so many all day long

It’s the first snow of the season, who would immediately book a ticket to a hot beach location?

Yong-sun. Though he doesn’t like the cold, he can handle that (sort of. It’s not bad enough to make him leave the country anyway). But snow??? It’s extra cold and hard to walk through, at some point it gets gross and muddy – it’s just a big nope for him and if he could he’d definitely get outta there

Which character believed in Santa (or a mystical equivalent) for the longest time?

In The Netherlands we have Sinterklaas instead of Santa, and I feel like either Yong-sun or Hye-su would believe the longest. They just couldn’t imagine their parents lying to them about it.*

Drew didn’t have the greatest childhood living with his father, and his father wouldn’t keep up pretenses of Sinterklaas. Reyna on the other hand is WAY too curious and went to investigate Sinterklaas and then accidentally found out her mom and grandmother were the ones behind the presents.

* SAME. I WAS SO MAD WHEN MY MOM TOLD ME HE WASN’T REAL? ‘SO YOU’VE BEEN LYING TO ME ALL THIS TIME?’ and then I basically interrogated her by asking her about all these situations that had happened surrounding Sinterklaas, demanding explanations and proof lmao

Who is most likely to build a blanket fort and go into hibernation with books, Netflix and tea/hot cocoa/coffee?

Considering he doesn’t like the cold: Yong-sun. A blanket fort where he could just live all winter and just read, binge watch a bunch of stuff and drink tea or hot cocoa sounds like heaven to him. What is outside

Yong-sun @ people who want to go outside during winter

Who would be the first to start a snowball fight and then get really competitive about it?

Drew, for sure. In a lot of ways he’s still a big kid at heart and he loves snow. Snowball fights, making snowmen… he loves it all. He’d turn everything into a competition, not just the snowball fight. And he’d be determined to win. Whenever he loses a fight, he will sneak up on whomever won the next morning and throw a snowball at their back.

Who buys their Christmas presents super last minute?

Hye-su loves buying or making people presents, but… she’s also a HUGE procrastinator. She’s gotten better at it over the years, but she still curses herself for leaving it so late.

There’s a local snowman competition, who would be the best sculptor? What would they build?

Being the artistic one in the group, definitely Hye-su. She would probably go all out and make Cinderella’s Castle and Mickey and friends in front of it. And then all the other competitors would hate her because who would be that Extra™

Something like this

If someone were to organize a Secret Santa event, who would it be?

They actually do Secret Santa in the book! Though there isn’t much to organise – they just put their names on slips of paper and pulled it out of a hat. They exhange gifts during karaoke, but they’re over there a lot, so Reyna just has to book a room and that was it. Hye-su is put in charge of snacks, because she’s basically a Snack Mom™, but if there was actually an event to organise it would be Yong-sun. He’s incredibly organised with all his notepads, notebooks, lists, a white board… They’d all nominate him for the job.*

* Though if any calls had to be made, he’d ask Reyna to do that

Someone refuses to leave the house unless strictly necessary because of the cold. Who is it?

So this is again Yong-sun, like I said before he’d love to live in a blanket fort and not acknowledge that the outside world is a thing

Who puts style before comfort and would rather freeze in fashionable clothes than be warm but not on trend? Bonus: Add a winter aesthetic for the character!

Reyna, for sure. While the others do dress nicely during winter and have that Winter Aesthetic™ going on, they can also cover themselves in non-matching scarves, hats, gloves, wear socks that are so thick you can see them through their pants, you name it. Reyna though? She gotta look on point

TAG YOU’RE IT

💛 May @ Forever and Everly
💛 Lia @ Lost in a Story
💛 Every writer who wants to do this!

Can you relate to any of my characters? How long did you believe in Santa (or Sinterklaas)? Would you put style before warmth and comfort? How’s the writing going? Let me know in the comments!

All Hallows Write Tag | My Characters Prepare For Halloween… A Year Early?

I saw this fun tag on Kat @ Life and Other Disasters’ blog and even though Halloween is long over and Christmas is around the corner, I just knew I had to do it. Not just is it fun, but it’s also a way to get to know your characters better.

RULES

💛 Provide a short description of your story!
💛 Don’t use the same character for more than 3 answers! <– I’m probably not going to stick to this rule, since I’ll mostly answer with my main four

DESCRIPTION OF MY WIP

Yong-sun An is worried about a lot of things, but at the top of his list? The future. Worried his anxiety will get in the way of everything he does, he has no clue what he’ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because that’s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time it’s bound to go wrong, right?

Meanwhile, his not-best friend (except he is his best friend) Drew suddenly starts to act weird. Yong-sun has no idea how to help, but he has a feeling that it has to do with the mysterious text messages Drew has been getting.

Okay so it’s not complete, because I want to mention Reyna and Hye-su and just the overal theme of friendship, but hey I went from this:

‘Friendship, banter, food, karaoke, The Gay™, Dora the Explorer Discourse (I’m not even joking I really hope people will find this very very long scene as hilarious as I do lmao)’

Anyway it’s very light and fluffy though it tackles some more serious issues like anxiety, bullying and abusive parents too.

To the first paragraph. LOOK AT ME FINALLY BEING ABLE TO SUMMARISE/WRITE A BLURB FOR MY WIP. I say I’ve improved.

If you want to know more about my characters and see some pretty aesthetics* read this post.

* If I do say so myself

QUESTIONS

It’s Halloween night! What is your protagonist dressed up as?

Actually, there is a Halloween scene and one of Yong-sun’s friends, Reyna, has the idea to all dress up in Hogwarts uniforms. She sorted all of them* and Yong-sun wears a Hufflepuff uniform. Though it was Reyna’s idea, he does love Harry Potter** so he’s fine with it. Plus it’s not embarrassing nor something that sounds out much, so perfect for his anxiety.

Yong-sun isn’t really that creative when it comes to costumes, so for future Halloweens he’d ask Reyna or one of his other friends for advice again.

* Actually I did duh
** I wonder if I’ll ever be able to write a character that doesn’t at least like Harry Potter. And by that I mean a character who isn’t an antagonist or villain

Who in your cast refuses to dress up and shows up at the Halloween party without a costume?

I can’t imagine any of the main four refusing to dress up, so I guess for this one I’ll go with my antagonist, who I finally named a while ago! I was done with writing [antagonist] all the time so after a year* I finally named him. Well, actually I asked my friend for help. She suggested Luke** and I turned that into Lucas. So Lucas would definitely refuse to dress up because that’s ‘childish‘. He’ll get into it once he’s in college though, but his costumes will be pretty problematic.

* I think it was over a year actually
** ‘Are you saying Luke because of Percy Jackson’ ‘Yes’

Which character wears the most outrageous costume, and what would it be?

So all four of them wear Hogwarts uniforms in the WIP, but if anyone would wear something outrageous, it would be Reyna. Drew is a close second, but I think Reyna’s costume would be more ‘outrageous’. Outrageous as in some people would not be amused because her costume would call out some form of discrimination. And of course she’d make a vlog about it.

On Halloween, werewolves, vampires, and zombies are on the prowl. Which of your characters gets caught in their clutches, and which creature do they subsequently turn into?  

I feel like this would be Drew. He’d do something stupid and somehow get turned.

I can definitely see him as a werewolf, and not just because I picture Daniel Sherman as Drew and he played Isaac on Teen Wolf. I just can’t picture Drew’s personality on a vampire or a zombie, as silly as that may be because it’s not like a vampire would go ‘hmm, nah, I won’t suck your blood you’re better suited to be a werewolf’. Though I can imagine a supernatural being like ‘nope not turning this one don’t want to be stuck with this for an eternity’ since Drew can be quite annoying haha

Who wins the contest for best costume?

Hye-su, hands down. She has the advantage of having a costume designer as a dad, so her costume would look really professional. The Hogwarts uniforms they all wear in the WIP were also designed by her dad.

"Linda, 'it's no wonder that her name means beauty.' I'm writing this as I stay at my mom's home, recovering from an unexpected hospital trip, and I struggle to put into words how incredible my mother truly is. Since I've been here, she has anticipated my every need, down to even the most seemingly inconsequential things that mean the world to me. This morning, she came into my room and asked if I needed a notebook and pen, just because she knows I love to write, especially when going through something difficult. I had been feeling so alone, and that felt like such a small but profound, tender mercy and gift to me. It is so astounding to have that in your life, a mother like mine. Someone who just understands you, attuned to your needs before you even ask, who is always there to remind you of the beautiful and special daughter of God you truly are. And because she is always there to remind me of my beauty, I wanted this opportunity to remind her of her own. From the first time we see her face, our mother is the most precious thing we know. The beauty between mother and child is so deep, it reaches even beyond the surface of our faces and touches our very soul. With nine children, she is consistently going back and forth, trying to give all of herself to make sure no one slips through the cracks or gets left behind. She selflessly does this for us, and she selflessly cared for her mother, who passed away when my own mom was still in high school. Throughout her life, she has remained resilient, yet kind, and especially, beautiful, inside and out. I can't think of any more perfect queen than Belle to pay tribute to my own queen mother." -Bethanie, about mother, Linda Credit: Photography @tonyross001 Hair @royalenchantments Makeup @audryfoote Models my beautiful wife @bethaniegarcia And my even more beautiful mother in law @linwadley11 😅 dress @designerdaddy_ Location @utstatecapitol

A post shared by Nephi Garcia (@designerdaddy_) on

I imagine her wearing an amazing Disney Princesses dress like this one. If you don’t follow @designerdaddy_ yet please do! He’s amazingly talented

Who hands out toothbrushes to the trick and treaters?

Ohh this is a tough one. I’ve been putting this question off, because I just don’t know? I can’t imagine any of the main four do that. I did consider Lucas at first, because I thought ‘he would be that evil’* but then I realised people who hand out toothbrushes think they’re doing a good thing and care about kids’ teeth and Lucas would never.

* I was thinking from a kid’s perspective because let’s be honest,, I’m still a big kid

Which two of your characters decide to pair up and do an angel/devil costume together?

I can definitely see Drew finding this a hilarious idea and convincing Yong-sun to do this, but the costumes would be low-key way. He also convinces him to be the devil while he’s the angel, because he loves that everyone would expect it to be the other way around.

I imagine Drew’s costume to be like Hikaru and Kaoru’s. Yong-sun’s would be similar but no wings and a devil horns’ headband on instead. Definitely no tail

Someone is too scared to even attend the Halloween party. Who is it?

Both Yong-sun and Hye-su hands down. They both have anxiety so parties?? Especially ones that are MEANT to be scary?? Double the scare no thanks

Who overdoses on Halloween candy and ends up sick?

Drew, no doubt. He’s like a little kid during Halloween and wants ALL THE CANDY

Yong-sun is the oldest sister in the back*

* I don’t remember the names of these characters woops

Which character is most likely to place a curse/hex on someone and who would they curse?

Reyna would definitely lose her temper and curse/hex anyone being offensive. Lucas would be at the top of her list if she knew what he was up to. Reyna would be like book! Ginny and her temper

Reyna hexing everyone in her mind

TAG YOU’RE IT

I won’t tag anyone in specific, but if like me you believe time is an illusion and you just want to do a fun tag, consider yourself tagged!

Does your WIP or any of your past WIPs have a Halloween scene? Would your characters dress up?   Would they hand out tootbrushes? Would you? Let me know in the comments!

Sharing 7 Lines From the WIP

Back in 2015 I did the 777 Challenge. Though I wasn’t tagged in it this time, I thought I’d bring it back because 1) I barely talk about writing on here anymore and this blog needs to live up to its name and 2) it’s NaNoWriMo so what better time than to share some lines!

In this challenge you have to share seven lines from the seventh page of (one of) your WIP(s) and then tag 7 bloggers. This year I’m working on the same contemporary novel as last year, as school got in the way and I never got around to working on it. I really hope that this year I’ll be able to finish it. Fingers crossed!

Wow I forgot that the reason it’s called 777 challenge because you have to share seven lines from the seventh page of your WIP. I just chose some lines  I liked woops haha. While I would’ve liked to share that snippet, I’m going to stick to the rules so here are seven lines from the seventh page:

 

I don’t know about you but besides the Drew one this list is really me. Then again Yong Sun, the protagonist, is a lot like me.

I tag:

May | Kat | Eve | Charlotte | Holly | Marie | YOU!

If I tagged you don’t feel obligated to do this!

Are you participating in Camp NaNo? How’s it going? If you’re not participating, how’s the writing going anyway? Let me know in the comments!

#WritersLife Tag

I found this tag at Rachana’s blog Addicted to YA and thought it looked like fun! Don’t forget to check out her answers to these questions!

Write Fuel: What do you eat/drink while writing?

I don’t eat while I write. If I get hungry, I take a food break. I do drink lots of water and tea (I’m aware that’s water too, don’t worry) while I write. Need to stay hydrated! Also I can’t do much without my tea.

Write Sounds: What do you listen to while writing?

Depends what I’m writing. I have different playlists, but Lifehouse, Imagine Dragons and soundtracks (Harry Potter, Disney, Doctor Who and a few others) are always part of those playlists!

Write Vice: What’s your most debilitating distraction?

Quizzes. If you follow me on Twitter (which can also be a distraction), you may have noticed I’m addicted, even when I’m writing.

Sadly these are only a few tweets depicting my obsession.

Write Horror: What’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to you while writing?

COMPUTERS AND LAPTOPS CRASHING OH MY GOD

Write Joy: What’s the best thing that’s ever happened while writing or how do you celebrate small victories?

Finishing my first book when I was ten. I mean, it was a siriusly crappy book, but it was an accomplishment. A big one.

Write Crew: Who do you communicate with or not communicate with while writing? 

Fellow writers on Twitter! I don’t always do this, but sometimes while writing I share something on Twitter and that often leads to a conversation! In real life, I prefer not to talk to anyone haha.

Write Secret: What’s your writing secret to success or hidden flaw?

Haha I wish I could tell you I had a ‘writing secret to succes’. I promise that if I get a publishing deal I’ll share all my writing secrets with you, so that you guys can decide which one it was that led to my succes.

Write-spiration: What always makes you productive?

Here’s a list (because I love lists):

  • Reading a really good book
  • Hearing/reading about other people’s work
  • Setting goals for myself
  • When I get a brilliant idea
  • Food. How can you be productive on an empty stomach?!

There are probably a few other things, but I can’t think of them right now.

Write Peeve: What’s one thing writers do (or you do) that’s annoying?

When I sort my characters into Hogwarts, or when I do other things that are related to my writing, but I’m not actually writing.

Everyone has heard the story of Lucifer who was banned from Heaven, but many do not know what happened afterwards.

The first sentence of The Army of Quermo!
