THE WRITER’S OTP CHALLENGE!: in which I squeal like an insane grandma about my precious children

GOOD MORNING, CYBERSPACE!

If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m a sucker for writing challenges and tags. There’s just something simple and easy about answering questions, and when you’re in a tight pinch for a blog post, they are quite literally a heaven-sent.

So when I saw a writerly challenge over on Faith’s blog (which you should totally check out if you haven’t already!!!!) I just knew I had to participate.

Now, I THINK this was supposed to be done in the month of February (it was created by the fairy godmothers of Fairy Tale Central as a February Instagram challenge, and was later posted to the blogosphere for us peeps who aren’t as acclimated with Insta), but I digress. It is March, and we are doing it anyway. #tinyrebellions

Also! You might have noticed that this is a writer’s OTP challenge. This means I’m going to be talking about the romantic ships locked within my own story pages. This, as you can probably tell, is going to be exceedingly awkward for me.

Please ignore everything I am about to say, because–as I have mentioned multiple times on this blog and literally everywhere else–I DON’T WRITE ROMANCE.

Let’s continue onwards, shall we?Read More »

The Never Have I Ever Tag (Writer’s Edition!)

good morning, cyberspace!

All right. You guys know me. If you slap the word writer or writing or WRITER’S EDITION onto something–however strange and unnecessary it might seem–I AM 100% GOING TO DO IT.

And since this is clearly a writing tag, and Tuesday is less than four hours away, I thought today would be the perfect time to become the smol thief we all know I truly am and steal the Never Have I Ever (Writer’s Edition!) tag from Eva!

i’m so original, help me

Let’s do this!Read More »

Project Inspire!

good morning, cyberspace!

i am so beyond excited for today’s smudge, guys, oh my word

Just recently, Kinsey mentioned me in her post for Project Inspire (and it seriously made my day, just sayin’), and after reading through her post, I realized that this was a tag/project that I really wanted to participate in.

As the creator of the tag–Jenna Terese–said in the original Project Inspire post, this is less of a tag, and more of “. . .an opportunity to take part in a mission to appreciate, inspire, encourage, and simply spread love to writers everywhere.”Read More »

The Get To Know Me Tag 2.0!

good morning, cyberspace!

Way back in July of 2018, I posted my answers for the Get To Know Me Tag (WRITER’S EDITION). Now, nine months later, I’ve been tagged yet again by the lovely Phoebe from over at So It Is (Re)Written to do this tag a second time! And since so much time has passed between now and then, I thought it’d be really fun to see how much my answers have changed–or . . . not changed?–since the last time I did this tag.

Which is why, today, I’m going to be doing the Get To Know Me Tag 2.0!

. . .in which the questions are literally the same as the last time. Aha. I also think I’m stealing the whole 2.0 thing from Phoebe, but SHHHHHH it’s fine. She won’t mind.

please don’t mind.

Anyway, without any further ado, let’s dive into the tag!Read More »

Voted Most Likely! — A Writer Tag

 good morning, cyberspace!

As you can most likely guess by the title of this smudge, today’s post is going to be extremely fun.

Just recently (literally yesterday. aha. #oops?), I was tagged by the amazing, the glorious, the absolutely FANTASTICAL Phoebe from over at So It Is (Re)Written to do her brand spanking new writer’s tag, Voted Most Likely!!

And let me tell you guys, this tag looks fabulous. I read through the post just this morning and immediately knew I had to participate. The questions are perfect. The GIF’s Phoebe used are perfect. The fact that I get to use my own original characters to answer this tag, rather than use a bunch of characters created by other writers is — you guessed it — perfect.

Basically every single thing about this tag is absolute perfection, and I just couldn’t wait until next week to post my answers.

Aaaaaaand I may or may not have been busy over the weekend, which means that a blog post did not get written for this week. So I mean, not only is Phoebe an amazing friend, but she’s also my lifesaver for the day. #yay!

So without any further ado (and because I’m super lazy and don’t want to write a giant intro) let’s jump right into the tag!!

The Get To Know Me Tag (Writer’s Edition!)

good morning, cyberspace!

As you can most likely already decipher from today’s lamely transparent title, today we are going to be doing the Get To Know Me Tag! (writer’s edition!)! Because I love doing tags. And I am a writer.

And also because I needed a cop-out post this week since my life has been super crazy hectic and I have not had a chance to come up with something clever and original.

Seriously, guys, I literally cannot even remember the last time I was able to sit down for a solid period of time and work on my book. It has been days. It has been weeks. IT HAS BEEN AN ETERNITY. But — thank the stars — my life finally looks like it’s about to calm down again (assuming I don’t get killed with a jackhammer over the weekend. . .? #demoday)which means that not only will I be able to work on everlost here in the next couple days, but I ALSO have something super special planned for next Tuesday!

Something glorious! Something spectacular!

Something suspiciously like the second installment in the Storytime With Kenzie! series. (*hint hint*)

So. If you can just bear with me for today and let me do this happy little tag, then I can personally assure you that next week you will be able to hear all about the frightening and woeful tale of how I nearly died. Sounds fun, amiright?

So without further ado and guilty apologies, let’s dive right into the tag!Read More »

The First Tag (in which I try and remember my terrible first attempts at being a rip-off writer [and also a sneak peek at my very first use of a writing prompt?])

good morning, Cyberspace!

Now that I’m back from Hiatus, I figure it’s high time that I begin resurrecting myself from the never-ending pit of tags that have apparently been molding and festering in the darkest corner of my studio for the past three years.

(I haven’t even been blogging for three years. #fail)

Apparently I am a very slappable person, folks, because I keep getting slapped in the face with tags.

Which is great, by the way. I love getting tagged. It gives me validation. Read More »
