Onto the questions!

  • Why did you start blogging?
    I first started blogging to get more practice writing – something to kind of keep me accountable to write consistently. It’s also good exposure so there’s that 🙂
  • What is your favorite blogging memory?
    Oh! Definitely when my favorite author – Robin Jones Gunn – commented on a post where I had done a review on one of her books. I had gone to her blog and in a comment told her about my blog post, but I never expected in a million years for her to actually comment on it!
  • What is your favorite writing memory?
    Ah, that’s hard! Either the reaction my Pietro/OC fanfiction got on the TPS forums, or my creative writing class with TPS. So basically with TPS xD
  • If you could have any breed of cat or dog (or snake, or hamster, or horse, or whatever), what would it be?
    Ahhh, do I have to pick??? I’ve always thought Australian Shepherds were pretty dogs, and Ragdoll cats are super cute (my cousin has one!). Not sure what horse breed I would want…
  • What is your favorite memory of a pet or pets?
    We recently got a new puppy (I PROMISE TO POST ABOUT IT SOON), and he’s adorable. Doesn’t have coordination quite down yet, so that’s always funny. And any memory with my cat, Kit, is hilarious – she’s got a huge personality, despite her being a tiny cat.
  • What is the one book everyone in the world should read?
    Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
  • Do you like rain?
    I do like rain, as long as I’m not caught in it haha xD
  • Cauliflower or broccoli?
    Broccoli.
  • What is the longest book you’ve read?
    Oh dang, I’m not sure??? I never really think about the length when I’m reading. Maybe Emma by Jane Austen?
  • What is the longest book or story you’ve written?
    My current WIP (in order) is at 29K, but the longest one I’ve written has been 41K.
  • What do you consider your biggest passion or cause in life?
    My biggest passion is definitely writing, my pets, my family, and God.

Text Tag Game

My awesome classmate, Grace Anne (check out her blog here), nominated me for this tag!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them
  2. Answer the original 6 text-related questions
  3. Add a typography/word related question of your own for those that you tagged to answer
  4. Tag 6+ bloggers and notify them
  5. Include the rules in the post

The Questions!

  1. What is your favorite letter of the alphabet?

Hmmm, I’ll go with ‘L.’ You can make it really pretty and swirly with calligraphy/lettering and such, plus it’s the first letter of my name xD

2. What are three words you love?

Right now, I really like the word delighted/delightful/pretty much any version of delight. I think it’s such a pleasant, adorable word that’s not used enough – although, maybe that’s why I like it. I also love the words scrumptious and glint.

3. What are three words you hate?

Dang. I don’t know if I really hate any words lol. I’m a writer, so words are kind of a writer’s thing haha 😛 I do think, though, that the word “love” is overused and has lost some of it’s meaning.

4. If you could create a word, what would it be and what would it describe?

Lillica ~ the love between friends. I feel like this would clear up a lot of confusion xD Plus, then the actual word “love” would regain some of its meaning.

5. What are your three favorite punctuation marks?

The exclamation (!), dash (-), and the curly symbol (~) if those last two count haha.

6. What are your three favorite fonts?

Times New Roman, French Script MT, and not sure if this counts, but probably italics.

7. Grace Anne’s question, favorite adjective or descriptive word?

Oo that’s a hard one! There are so many beautiful words! Right now, I think I’ll go with ardently – a classic, romantic adjective.

My question: do you prefer using the bold font or italics?

I tag Gianna, Ally, and Cherri. Have fun! 🙂
