The Writer’s Life Tag

Happy Wednesday everyone  ❤ I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

If you have noticed I’ve changed the theme of my blog, I needed a little change and tweaked it a bit (go spot the changes  ;)). I am so happy with how it came out and I would love to read your thoughts, so don’t be shy to comment below  ❤

For this tag… I saw The Writer’s Life Tag at Kim from Kim Chance on YouTube and I loved it and really wanted to give it a try. So without further ado, let’s start with the tag  😀

Questions

Write-fuel: What do you eat or drink while writing?
Coffee (decaf) and water. I mostly don’t eat anything while writing.

Write-sounds: What do you listen to while writing?
I think I’ve said it here and there, I love (LOVE) the Rainy Mood website. I use it a lot in my writing, but when I write fight scenes, I love listening to heavy metal (yep), gaming music and Kpop 🙂

Write-vice: What is your biggest writing distraction?
Life. When My mom needs me, or something happens to her, my sweet hubby and all the things I need to do around the house, to keep it not looking like a pigsty.

Write-horror: What’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to you while writing?
As most of you know, I’ve lost 10 years of work (3 books) and I never found it (didn’t back it up and cry so much). Don’t forget to back up your work.

Write-joy: What’s the best thing that ever happened to you while writing?
The best ever for me is to be able to sit down and write. But if I don’t count that, then the best feeling I had with writing is typing the words The End. It is the best feeling ever! I also had a wonderful moment when I was all alone in the house, not much to worry about and I wrote 10K a day (it was amazing, just heaven).

Write-crew: Who you communicate with or not communicate with while writing?
Sadly, I don’t have any writing buddies (wish I had). I have a few people I can talk to but I can’t call them writing buddies. One of the goals I have for the next quarter is to find some nice and good writing buddies  ❤

Write-secret: What your secret to success and your biggest writing flaw?
The #1 “secret” for writing, I think it’s determination. I know that things are going slow for me, but never in my life, I wanted to give up. I write when I’m sick, when I’m tired and when I don’t feel like writing. I am left with so little time, that when I finally have the time to write, I just write. I also love planning my work. If I outline the novel or even a scene, I know I will not get lost. Outlining really helps me a lot.
My writing flaw is that I can’t leave a scene or a page if it’s not written the way I want it to be. That is why I edit a lot more than “normal”, lol.

Write-spiration: What inspires you? Or what makes you productive?
I don’t have any special thing that makes me productive. I love to write so much and I barely have a moment to write, so when I do… I just write like a maniac, lol. I try to compensate for days of not writing and write until my fingers are numb.
An inspiration for me is, everywhere. From what I see, a book, a moment that something happens, a voice, you… everything  ❤ However it mostly comes from my weird mind, my dreams and from my over-imaginative mind, lol.

Write-peeve: What is one thing you do or other writers do that’s annoying?
The only thing I can think about is that my mood is related to my writing. If I did well and wrote a lot I am happy, relaxed and almost high, lol. But if I haven’t written anything or the scene I’ve written didn’t go as I wanted, I am very restless and annoyed.
About other writers? I really can’t think of anything. Each writer does what is best for him/her and his/her community  🙂

Write-words: Are you willing to share something you’ve written?
Yes. In the newsletter I’ve sent out yesterday, I added a little teaser of the book I am editing right now ELE and I hope you liked it.

There you have it, a look into my writer’s life  😀

This was such a fun tag to do and I hope you enjoyed reading it  ❤ I will not tag anyone to do this tag, but if you feel like give it try, go for it (you are considered tagged by me) and don’t forget to send a link of your tag my way  🙂

Thank you so much for reading  ❤

Disney Song Tag

I first saw this on Lynette Noni’s Blog and loved it so much that I decided to fill it out for myself. I love anything Disney and books ❤

So here goes! I won’t be tagging anyone myself, but if you’re interested in doing this tag feel free and consider yourself tagged 😀

Without further ado, here’s the Disney Song Tag!

1. A Whole New World – What is your favorite newest fantasy series?

New? Wow, that’s hard, but I guess Thrown of glass. I love the story, the characters, just can’t wait to read them all 🙂

2. Part of You World – What book world would you like to live in? 

I would love to live in Harry Potter’s world but as a wizard 😉

3. Let it Go- What book/series do you wish everyone would stop talking about?

I have to agree with Lynette here as well, Red Queen. I haven’t read it yet and I want to, but the hype of this book is getting higher and higher and now I am sure I will be disappointed (Well… maybe not but will see).

4. When You Wish Upon a Star- What book or series do you wish you could have more of?

Sorry, but the only thing that comes to mind is Harry Potter. I think that there are so many more adventures in that world and with those characters (or, maybe it’s just me).

5. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious- What is the longest book you have read?

As one single book and not a collection… Well… The only thing that I can think of is

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) by George R.R. Martin (1123 pages).

6. Hakuna Matata- What book could you read over and over without a care in the world?

Pride and Prejudice By Jane Austen ❤

7. A Spoonful of Sugar- What couple has the sweetest relationship?

Omg, there are just so much.

8. You Got a Friend in Me- Who are the best “best friends?”

I love Harry Potter and Hermione Granger 🙂

I also like Bella and Jacob from Twilight.

Frodo and Sam

9. Zero to Hero- What character wasn’t expected to be a hero?

I will have to say from Harry Potter again (sorry). Neville just was a surprise to everyone and he was so awesome for fighting like that.

10. You’ll Be in My Heart- What Character death made you cry the most?

I just talk with my friend about this and it’s from Harry Potter (again, lol).

Sirius Black. That was just so awful! I just cried so much (I can’t even think of it).

“And BTW, that’s an awful question to end this quiz on! Talk about a downer! *Insert unhappy face*” – How true.

Thank you so much for reading ❤

Bookish Would You Rather Tag

Book

We all know the “would you rather”-game, with questions like: would you rather have the hiccups for the rest of your life or always feel like you have to sneeze but not be able to. Most of these questions are impossible to answer, which makes them so much fun.

I found this cute tag on Anne’s blog, and I thought it’d be fun to try to answer these questions myself as well.

Anyway, here we go…!

Would you rather…

Read-only trilogies or stand alones?

OK, this one is easy 🙂

I would only read trilogies. I love big books and trilogies and series and I am not a huge fan if stand alones, lol.

Read-only female or male authors?

“Female authors, definitely. Not only are most of the books I adore written by female authors, but us girls got to stick together!” I totally agree with what Anne said here ❤

Shop at bookshops or online?

Wow, this one is really hard.

I love bookstores a lot! but I also hate going there most of the time. So for me, it would be online 🙂

All books become movies or t.v. shows?

This is a good one! This is a hard one as I not that sure of what it means, but if I understand it correctly I would rather all book become movies. There are many books that I love and think they are awesome and think that they would make a wonderful movie 😉

Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

This is a hard question for me as I think both are impossible, but in a perfect world were I could do nothing but read all day I would choose to read 5 books a week ❤

Be a professional reviewer or author?

Author! Nothing more to say on that ❤

Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?

Wow, this is a difficult one! Not reading again and aging Pride and Prejudice is a sad thought, but if I had to choose I will have to choose only reading new ones. (This was a cruel question).

Be a librarian or bookseller?

Bookseller 🙂 Having my own bookstore with coffee, would be awesome ❤

Only read your favorite genre or every genre except your favorite?

Hmm, this is actually an extremely hard question. After a few moments of thinking, lol, I think I’d have to go for only reading my favorite genre, which would be Fantasy. This is hard as I really started to like Science Fiction, but I couldn’t leave Fantasy behind. The thought of doing this is unbreakable!

Only read physical books or eBooks?

Well, this is easy, isn’t it?

Physical books ❤ I really started to love eBooks and it’s nice to have them both, but there’s nothing better than a physical book (I love their touch and their wonderful smell).

And we are now done!

I’m not going to tag anyone in specific, but if you want to do this Bookish Would You Rather as well, consider yourself tagged!

Don’t forget to share your thoughts on what would you rather?

Thank you so much for reading ❤

The Ultimate Book Tag

Ok, I saw this tag all over the blogging community and I really loved it.

So… I thought why not give it a go 🙂

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

Yes, I do! I can’t read when I am in a car or a bus. I hate that I can’t and I did try many times but not with good results.

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

I think Terry Pratchett is the most unique. He writes with humor and knowledge – All warped up in a fun and lovely book. But… I have to say that Robin Hobb has very special writing style as well.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Harry Potter. Always and forever. I know that even when I will be much older I will still love Harry Potter. There is something magical about these books, that is so rare and wonderful.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?

No! When I was younger I did. Now I love my books even more and I hate that they get ruined. I carry with me my tablet (it has kindle app in it) and I hope to buy Kindle soon.

5. Do you smell your books?

All the time 😀

6. Books with or without little illustrations?

I don’t mind little illustrations but I like it without 🙂

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

There are a few, but I really can’t remember the names.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

Funny? No! Interesting? Maybe 😀

When I was a kid and still couldn’t read, my mom used to read me a lot of poems from my favorite poem book ❤ After she read them I used to tell her stories about the character/s from that poem or made up a new poem all together 🙂

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

The Tales Of Beedle The Bard By J. K. Rowling. It’s small, thin and only 108 pages.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

I think it’s The Complete Fiction By H. P. Lovecraft 1098 pages.

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I can’t see my life without writing. Writing is air, it’s something that I can’t even live without. I do hope to be a published author in the near future ❤

12. When did you get into reading?

I started reading as a kid, at a very young age. Reading more and more, but when I discovered classics book (the penguin books) I fell in love with them and from that moment on I never stopped reading,

13. What is your favorite classic book?

Pride and Prejudice By Jane Austen.

Jane_Austen_coloured_version

14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?

English, Art, and Math were always my strongest subjects 😀

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated… What would you do?

This is very rare as most people will buy me gift cards or ask for a book I really want 😀 But if they did buy a book I hated I will let them know that I will exchange the book 🙂

16. There is no question 16! But… I wrote one for myself 😀 When you read, do you take notes of the things you loved, quotes, or words that you really liked?

I do! I do that a lot since I was at a very young age. My mom told me that if I found something nice that I love in the book I am reading, then I should write it down and show her ❤

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while blogging?

While working on a post I save it so many time, lol. I just forget if I saved it or not, so I keep clicking on the ‘save draft’, lo.

18. What is your favorite word?

Love, Hope and… supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ❤

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

I am a geek ❤

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Both. Both of them can be scary and pretty, lol. You gotta love them both.

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Sorry, not much a fan of either.

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

I love paranormal over supernatural in books anytime 🙂

23. Zombies or Vampires?

Vampires! Not much a fan of zombies, not in books nor in movies.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

Forbidden love is such a rare thing in a book so I would go with that.

25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

I don’t read much romance books.
