This is how you do it (Thank me for that blast to the past later.):
1. There are four things to answer:
- Here's a chance to hone your writerly skills: Tell me, who are you? You have one sentence only.
- What is about writing gives you the most joy? The dialogue, description, or something else entirely?
- If you were to write yourself as a character, what would your character phrase be? The little tics that make you, you?
- What books have you read recently? What would you recommend for us to read?
2. Tag anyone and everyone you'd like to.
Suppose I'll be stepping up to the stage first. Here we go...
1. Here's a chance to hone your writerly skills: Tell me, who are you? You have one sentence only.
Leah toils away at her dayjob while dreaming of writing expansive worlds full of mythological creatures and gods intermingling with the mortal realm.
2. What is about writing gives you the most joy? The dialogue, description, or something else entirely?
Although writing dialogue brings me a great amount of joy, I have to say that what makes me the most deliriously happy is when I write description that feels just right. When writing, I'm constantly struggling between purple prose and bare bones. Those rare moments that I write description that makes me smile, they're the ones I write for.
3. If you were to write yourself as a character, what would your character phrase be? The little tics that make you, you?
Without a single doubt, and anyone who follows me on twitter probably has a good idea of where I'm coming from, my character's most repeated phrase would be, "Seriously?" "Seriously." or some other variation. Everything is either super serious or questionably serious when I'm around, okay? As for the character tics, I'm not quite sure. Trying to think of what people have said to me, I would have to pick either messing with my hair incessantly or making faces. I make a lot of faces. It's a thing.
4. What books have you read recently? What would you recommend for us to read?
Let's see, I've been on a bit of a reading binge lately. I read through all of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy in two and a half days, and am now joining the mass of people shouting at you to read them if you haven't. Seriously, I sat through a good portion of the VMAs so I could see the sneak peek. Yes, I could have waited until today, because it's everywhere on the interwebs, but I wanted to see it right away. Guys, I can't wait to see the Capitol in film. And Effie Trinket! So excited. I've also started reading Lauren DeStefano's Wither, which is part of the Chemical Garden Trilogy, and I'm enjoying it as much as one can enjoy a book that constantly makes you think about your own mortality.
To get things rolling, you're all tagged of course! Feel free to use the cheaply made graphic and everything. Let me know if you choose to do it, I'm thinking of putting together a post on Friday with a link to everyone's answers. Enjoy!
