Here are the rules:
#1: Answer the 11 questions from your nominee
#2: Tag 11 bloggers
#3: Ask them 11 new questions
Let's get to it, shall we?
1) Is there a story you've always wanted to write, but haven't yet?
I've always loved the idea of writing a story about a group of high-schoolers that are hiking on Leap Year's Day (when two worlds meet), and end up being kidnapped by the inhabitants of the other world. Magic is disappearing on the other world, so they take 'Earthens' every four years and use Earth's knowledge to rebuild their countries instead of relying on magic. Something like that!
I haven't worked out the details yet, and the plot's still a bit fuzzy in my mind, but I might write it one day just for fun!
2) What tv show/movie have you binge-watched the worst?
*consults Netflix account* I watched a lotttttt of Continuum's first season during my last holiday, so much so that I'm not sure if I did anything else...?
3) You know those innocent little mistakes we make that are so. embarrassing. they keep you up at night. five years later. Those. Tell me about one of them?
Those are the kinds of mistakes I like to erase from my memory. I can think of plenty of embarrassing moments, but none that came from innocent little ones. Hmmmm... I mean, I nearly got knocked unconscious by a fruit falling from a tree I was under. (It was a heavy fruit from a tall tree, okay?) That's the most embarrassing yet funny moment of my life.
4) What's your biggest NOTP?
Dorian and Celaena from Throne of Glass. Lots of readers want them together, but their relationship never felt true or comfortable to me. (Plus, I really want her with someone else...)
5) Would you rather be attacked by one horse-sized duck or a hundred duck-sized horses?
One horse-sized duck, because I feel like it would be far easier to escape one than a hundred? Though the thought of a duck that big is a tad disconcerting...
6) Is there a song you've been listening to on repeat?
I always have a favourite song on repeat for a day, then it changes by the next day, then the next, etc. The latest though is probably 'Dream For You' by Casting Crowns. I love their lyrics so much!
7) Who is the first person that pops into your head when you think "weird"?
No one pops into my head...? I find things people do weird, but not people themselves.
8) What's your biggest pet peeve?
8) What's your biggest pet peeve?
When people unplug the hairdryer but don't switch it off, so when you plug it in you get a heart attack by it starting by itself. I find this really really REALLY annoying. Please never do that.
9) Oxford comma or no?
I don't have a side in this debate, actually. For me it depends on the sentence and whether that extra comma makes it flow or not.
10) If you could pick a name for yourself, what would it be?
I'm very happy with my name! (Especially my last name, though if you pronounce it Grav-it-tis and not Grav-vee-tis out loud I might glare at you. It's not pronounced how it's spelled weirdly enough.) I'd choose not to change it. Is that an option?
11) Why did you start a blog?
Two reasons! The first of which was that I started reading writing and book blogs, and I really loved the idea of sharing my thoughts and writing journey. The second was that I wanted to connect with other writers and readers. (Like all you lovely people!)
I think lots of people have already done this tag so I'll be a rebel and tag as many as I can.
Rachel @ R's Loft
Audrey @ Audrey Caylin
Christine @ Musings of an Elf
Ellie @ On the Other Side of Reality
If I tagged you and you've already done it, no worries! And if I didn't and you'd like to, then go for it and let me know! I'd love to read your answers.
Here are my 11 questions:
#1 - Did anything 'spark' your passion (writing, reading, art, etc.) or did it come on gradually?
#2 - If a library was on fire and you could only save three of its books, which three would you choose?
#3 - Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or another drink?
#4 - One of your characters can come alive for a day. Who do you want it to be?
#5 - How many siblings do you have?
#6 - Do you have a motto? (If you do, share it, if you don't, make one up!)
#7 - What's the strangest dream you've ever had?
#8 - Have you ever traveled out of your country, and if yes, where to?
#9 - If you wished on a shooting star, what would you wish for?
#10 - Would you rather go swimming in Antarctica or camping in the Sahara Desert?
#11 - How did you come up with your blog's name?
Is there a story you've always wanted to write but haven't yet? What are some of your answers to my questions? Are you in winter like me, or are you enjoying summer rays?
Let me know in the comments, and have a fabulous day! <3
