liebsterawards

Thank you so much for the nomination S.K.A!

Here are the 11 questions I have been asked

  • If you were a fruit, what fruit would you be?

A pomegranate because they are fun and a little weird

  • What book(s) best describe your personality?

I would probably say Divergent. I’m scared of a lot of things, and I know that I’m not even close to being as fearless as Tris, but I have struggled and overcome a lot of things in my life. I need to remember, ‘becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.’ I want to learn to become more like the Dauntless but also, like Four, I want to be more than one thing. I want to be brave, and selfless, and smart, and kind, and honest. I hope that, one day, I will be able to be all of them.

  • Who is your least favorite author? Why?

Least favorite author? I have no idea. I love so many books but I don’t have a lot of least authors. I really have no idea. Sorry. :/

  • If you could choose to be anywhere in the world, right now, where would it be?

In Italy? Because then I could see it with my own eyes and understand the culture better. In the book I’m writing, my characters go to Italy. I also really want to see Ireland someday. But at the same time I really want to be with all my family and my friends right now so if I could magically zap them all into one place and join them there that would be great!

  • What did you want to be when you were little?

I wanted to be a singer. I think there were some others but I can’t remember them.

  • Who is your favorite author? Why?

Hmmm, favorite author. I can’t pick a favorite! There are too many of them! I really really like Veronica Roth because her Divergent books are amazing and they have good morals and teach a good story. But I also really love Anne Mazer and Ellen Potter, the authors of Spilling Ink because that book helped me so much when I was first starting my writing journey.

  • Are you good at tongue twisters?

Good at them? I’m not sure if I would say good but I really love doing them! They’re so much fun! How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? As much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood!

  • Do you like to DIY? Or is it a nuisance?

Most of the time, I love to DIY! Mostly I do DIY’s for my room because room accessories can be so expensive and I get to be creative when I do it myself.

  • What book make you say, “Hey, I want to be a writer,” or when did that moment occur to you?

I have been writing ever since I was two years old. I don’t know if I ever had a particular book, but I did have a movie that always inspired me, and I would always want to write something after I watched it. That movie was Nim’s Island. But the real moment that I started writing happened in late December of 2012. My brothers were telling me about a MineCraft video and I got an idea for a story from it that I immediately knew I was going to write. It’s funny where ideas can come from.

  • Have you ever been scammed?

No I don’t think so

  • Do you believe in vision boards? Have you ever made one?

They’re cool! I have never made one though.

Here are 11 random facts about me!

  • My family owns one dog and four cats. We also have two bunnies.
  • I am in a choir, take voice lessons, and really enjoy singing
  • I met one of my best friends at the library when I was eight years old
  • I won a tall tale short story contest at my local library when I was a little kid
  • I wrote the first draft of a novel in 21 days once
  • I love ice cream and some of my favorite flavors are: Samoas, mint chocolate chip, and lemon
  • One of the walls of my bedroom is completely covered in post it notes, drawings, and papers, that all have things for my story written on them
  • My favorite sweatshirt that I own is bright yellow with birds on it and it says ‘Peace+Love= Happiness.’ I wear it all the time in fall, winter, and spring
  • I love football and my favorite team is the Green Bay Packers
  • My favorite color is a light blue
  • I rarely wear makeup and when I do it is usually just lip crayon
