I have another tag to bring you all today!
This tag was created by Savannah Grace, and I was kindly tagged by my friends, Catwing, and Mariposa, and Aberdeen, over at Dino’s Digest. I may be the last person in the blogosphere to complete this tag, but I’m going to fix that right now.
You might not know this, but in addition to being a writer of blogs, I’m also a writer of stories. Today I’m going to be answering some of the burning questions that you never knew you wanted to know about me.
Vital Stats and Appearance
Name: You’ve probably guessed that one by now.
Nickname: We’ll go with, Lady S.
Birthday: Sometime in the spring. You may even call me a spring chicken! But that would be stretching it.
Hair color/Length: Dark brown, just above the shoulder.
Piercings/Tattoos: Pierced ears, and a full sleeve of tattoos. In color. Just kidding. My ears aren’t actually pierced.
Ethnicity: American, will suffice.
Fist Novel Written: Um…I’m still writing it.
First Novel Completed: Haven’t completed any yet. Started a few, but they were all flops. None had names.
Award for Writing: None currently.
First Publication: Once upon a time, in an e-magazine far away, (RIP, Kingdom Pen) a short poem of mine was published. That is still the most crowning achievement of my writing career to date.
Conferences: Conferences? Don’t you have to talk to, *shudders* people, at those things?
Query/Pitch: At this moment in time, I don’t have one, thankfully.
Novel (that you wrote): Am I allowed to say, the one that I haven’t written yet? Because it’s definitely that one.
Genre: A couple of years ago I would have said, fantasy. But these days, my horizon has broadened a little, to places such as, speculative, classics, and even into non-fiction.
Author: The first that comes to mind, would be Diana Wynne Jones, for her epic fantasies, and of course, Howl’s Moving Castle. But also Gene Stratton-Porter, for the way she blends her love of story, with her love of nature, in a way that I can only dream of coming close to.
Writing Music: Hmm… That changes pretty frequently. But lately it’s been anything from the YouTube channel, Smyang, his piano covers are lovely.
Writing Snack/Drink: I don’t really eat while I write, but if I do, it’s usually something unhealthy. (Hot Cheetos, preferably, but then my keyboard suffers greatly!) On the healthier side of the street, apple slices are handy, and thankfully not very messy.
Movie: I’ve never had one movie that I’d call my ultimate favorite. So I’m just going to choose one that I have enjoyed, and that maybe you would too. And that movie is called, A Letter to Momo. It’s a movie with a unique storyline, accompanied by a cast of eclectic, and very memorable characters.
Writing Memory: I don’t think I have any special memories, but if I had to pick, it would probably be when I wrote my first, decent story and got into such a rhythm that I was able to crank out seven pages in one sitting. (Being somewhat of a pantser, that’s quite a lot for me!)
Childhood Book: Now that’s a pretty a tough question but, The Tale of Despereaux, by Kate DiCamillo, is definitely a prominent one in my memory. Then there’s, The Tail of Emily Windsnap, by Liz Kessler. Those books were the mermaid stories of my childhood dreams.
Reading: Orphans Song, by Gillian Bronte Adams, and also, What the Robin Knows, by Jon Young. (So far, the Robin doesn’t know anything very interesting. Wouldn’t recommend.)
Writing: This. While procrastinating and not finishing my current writing project. (A.K.A., my first actual novel)
Listening To: The wind howling through the trees, and rattling down the chimney pipe beside me. It’s quite a blustery day and rather rotten.
Watching: Nothing at the moment, as I’m taking a short respite from TV shows. I’ve fallen very far, and very deep into the pit that is, K-Drama’s. After growing tired of nearly all Western entertainment, I had to travel all the way to Korea, (through the internet, of course) to find something interesting. But it’s a dangerous road to travel my friends, be forewarned.
Learning: I’m actually attempting to re-teach myself piano. Not formally or anything, but since I played several years ago, I figured it wouldn’t be too hard to jump back in. (…I was wrong)
Want to be Published: Yes, I think so.
Traditional or Indie: That’s something I’ve been contemplating, but for now, I’m going to keep my options open.
Wildest Goal: Get published! Or maybe just travel to, Japan. Though I’m not sure which one is more unlikely. 😉
There you have it. I wonder if you feel like you know me just a little more now?
And since I don’t have anyone to tag, I’m presenting the opportunity to all of you, if you’d like, to consider yourself tagged, or even leave your answers in a comment down below. I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for reading,
