Awesome, let’s get started!
1. What’s your favourite character trope?
*runs to the writing community to ask what a character trope is* *rushes back*
I especially like the loyalist character, who is mostly like a side-kick, but super loyal no matter what happens. (And no matter how annoying the main character is!)
2. What’s your least favourite character trope?
I have never liked the tough girl who can do everything herself and doesn’t need help from a guy. It’s so annoying. Why do they have to be so stubborn!?
3. What’s your favourite thing about the writing community?
I love how I can ask questions about things that are just so hard to research. And it’s so amazing to know that there are other people out there so similar to me! (Who knew there were so many Christian homeschooled writers!?)
4. What was the last indie book you read, and what did you think of it?
The last indie book I read was Robyn Hood: A Girl’s Tale, by K. M. Shea. I did not like it very much, which was pretty disappointing. There was an incredible amount of typos and the story was kind of annoying.
5. What’s the last song you listened to?
I’m pretty sure my sister was playing “Free, Free” by Pearl this morning. It’s super catchy!
6. How do you outline your stories, or do you figure out your story as you go?
Heh, heh…. to be honest, I haven’t found my groove for plotting yet. With The Bruised Dream, I plotted out pretty much every scene. With Oxygen, I plotted the beginning and the end, but totally made it up as I wrote the middle part. Then, with all of my short stories, I basically just write a sentence and run with it. So I’m not sure what my normal is.
7. What are some of your favourite writing blogs? (Share links!)
Oh man, how can I name all my favourites? I’ll limit myself to five. 😝
8. Are there any elements you find make their way into most/all of your stories? What are they?
Twins! Or at least, they used to. Almost every single one of my stories I wrote when I was younger have a set of twins—normally the main characters. Now I often have a sister-brother relationship. It’s so fun!
9. What’s your favourite non-fiction book?
Aside from the Bible, Do Hard Things is pretty awesome! I don’t read many non-fiction books, though.
10. What are a few of your favourite quotes?
“Fall seven times, stand up eight.” I think it’s a Chinese proverb?
Also, “Courage, Dear Heart.” ~ C. S. Lewis
11. Houseplants: yea or nay?
Yay! Well, not really. I don’t have any, but I like them. 🙂
This time, I’m going to tag whoever wants to do this! (It’s really fun, btw, so you should totally go for it!)
