The Original Outstanding Blogging Award

My first real official tag! I was in the list.😀 I was tagged by  Jenna . The rules: Provide the link the creator's original award post. (very important: see why in step 5) Answer the questions provided. Create 7 unique questions. Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award's creator nor the blogger that nominated you can be nominated. At the end of 2020, every blog that pings-back the creator's original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!  This award was created by  Colton Beckwith .  The original post .   The questions: 1. Would you rather be a vegetarian or only eat meat? While I love meat a lot, I would still choose to be a vegetarian because there is more variety out there and the fact that I don't like eating meat by itself.  2. What's a habit you'd like to break? Getting distracted? Is this a habit? I don't know, but if there is anything I want break out of, it is getting distract

The Fictional Vacation/Would You Rather Tag

I stole again from  Nicole , cause she got such cool tags up her sleeve. 😀 Anyway, the rules: Include the graphic  Madeline  made. Answer the questions. Tag some other people if you feel so inclined. Would you rather... Train with other demigods for the summer in Camp Half-Blood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester? Hogwarts. I prefer the world where Hogwarts exist and it's more of my type of place than Camp Half-Blood. Go on an epic quest through the lands of Middle-earth OR be crowned a king and queen for your bravery in Narnia? This might have been hard, if being crowned a king/queen was not unappealing. I just don't want that sort of position. So, yes, I choose the Middle-earth epic quest. Fly with Peter Pan and his Lost Boys in Neverland OR have a crazy tea party with the Mad Hatter in Wonderland?  Even though Once Upon a Time (and another source) has ruin Peter Pan for me, I would still choose to fly with him and his Lost Boys over Wonderland. I'm s

Favourite Books - Within These Lines

Okay, so I debated whether I should do a review on Within These Lines or A Monster Calls. Since I read Within These Lines first, I thought it had priority over the one I finished yesterday. So if you wanted to read about A Monster Calls... I'm sorry. I hope to write its review soon. So first things first, Within These Lines was written by Stephanie Morrill. It is a standalone story. And I am sharing the blurb at the beginning this time: Evalina Cassano's life in an Italian-American family in 1941 is everything is quiet and ordinary... until she falls in love with Taichi Hamasaki, the son of Japanese immigrants. Despite the scandal it would cause and that inter-racial marriage is illegal in California, Evalina and Taichi vow they will find a way to be together. But anti-Japanese feelings erupt across the country after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and Taichi and his family are forced to give up their farm and move to an internment camp. Degrading treatment makes life at Manzanar R

Writer's Obsessions

We all have things we are obsess about (hopefully in a healthy way). But what sort of obsessions I am talking about here? Well, the writer ones. Now, you're probably more confused by this statement (if not, I'm impressed), so I am going to explain it further - They are things you are obsess to write about. The things that you are so crazy about that you must write about them. Like dragons. Or mirrors. Maybe the sort of things you might write in more than one book or series (though those things are properly the little things). So on that note, today I am sharing my own obsessions, the little ones and the big ones. Mirrors. Yes, I am obsessed with mirrors. I thought I should get this out of the way since I already mentioned it. I always wanted to write a story with mirrors. I had many imagination stories with mirrors involved. I think maybe that I planned some real stories to have mirrors. Anyway, none of them worked... until recently! That is to say that the story will work ou

Two Things I Learnt While Writing

Today, I am sharing two things I learnt while writing, that I find helpful to think about while writing. So, you can think of this as tips as well as getting insight into my writing mind, if you're just a reader.  1. Learning with your characters This was kinda of mind-blowing for me. When you're plotting, or more likely exploring ideas, you follow your main character randomly to get a basic feel of who they are, how they will react, who they will socialize with or are close to and how they will interact with other people. While also trying to get a decent plot along the way. This was what I was doing. I was following my main character around when a random idea popped into mind and it happened right there and then without me giving it a thought. And my secondary character had to suffer the blow while I was reeling myself with this new development from my main character. This moment has become the first big moment in this story and is the one of the few pieces of the original pl
