For the past week I've been sort of occupied
with changes at work. Because of this I haven't been able to steal away and use WhatABurger's free internetz!
Now, however; the hectic time has passed [AKA Halloween is over] and I can get back to my regular time spent on DA. Like... a lot of time... on DA.
For those of you wondering - judging has now commenced and if you can be patient with
, and I... we'll try to have the results up by
We all know I host a lot of stuff... we all know how much I love doing it. Point Donations
SERIOUSLY go a long way for me. I love donating prizes for other peoplez events as well as awarding winners in my own - but my pockets are only so deep, contrary to what NemoX7
thinks. [I'm not Smaug.
] So if any of you lovely individuals could spare a few extra
??? I will SHOWER you with love.
Rules:1.) Answer the questions.
2.) Tag two people.
3.) Have fun! Make the answers long or as short as you like.1. When did you discover you enjoyed writing?
In elementary school my teacher had a "creative writing" project during class. She wrote down three words on the board and we had to make a story out of it. The words? Ballet, Butterflies, & Pond.
I wrote a story called The Butterly Ballet
that I still remember to this day as being magical
. This event sparked my love for writing. 2. What are your strengths in writing?
I feel that I have a knack for creating interesting, believable characters. I WILL NOT write a character until I know what drives them. Until I understand them COMPLETELY. Because of this - I think my characters usually come across as "relatable" to readers. 3. Your weaknesses?
Common things. Like using too many adverbs; showing
instead of telling
. Things I am DESPERATELY trying to work on. 4. What is your favourite genre to write in?
HORROR PROSE. Forever and always. 5. Do you consider yourself a good writer?
I believe it is something I'm gifted for. Something I was meant to do. 6. Do you like to let a lot of people in real life read your work?
My fiance reads my work. I'd led my dog, Rambo, read it... but he'd probably just look at me the whole time and beg for a treat. 7. How often do you write?
As often as I can or as often as the ideas come. Whichever hits first! 8. Who are your favourite authors? Why?
ALL TIME FAVORITE AUTHOR IS AGATHA CHRISTIE
. She is my inspiration in almost EVERYTHING I write. I LOVE And Then There Were None
. LOVE IT. 9. Do you have any OCs? If you do, describe your favourite one.
OH GAWD. Who do I choose???
How about... Gust
is broody, sexy, angry, and a half-breed. I can't talk about him enough. 10. If you write fanfics, for what fandoms do you do so?
I actually don't
write fanfics. But I DID write a boyXboy piece for a Secret Santa
once. It was a Thorki [Thor & Loki] piece. You can check it out I suppose... if you're not offended by that sort of thing. Winter Storms11. Do you prefer writing by hand or typing?
TYPING. Cuz I get crampz and stuff. 12. Are you a huge critic when it comes to writing?
I don't feel it's my place to criticize something I am only a novice at. Why would I tell someone to do something better when I don't know how to do it myself?
I don't see the point. 13. What format do you most like to write in? (Prose, short story, poetry, vignettes, etc?)
Hmmmm. I actually tend to write Short Stories
more than anything. I find them easy to get started, easy to finish, and all-around fulfilling.
