She's unlocked the meaning for you

I was tagged by Rebelise, and I'm finally, finally, getting to it. Sorry, dearie! 

Her questions, which, I must comment on their brilliance.  They certainly had me thinking for answers:

1. L.M. Montgomery or Louisa May Alcott?
You know, that's a good question....I truly love both of their writing style, and characters.  However, I'm going to go with Montgomery, since there is just something in her writing that aspires you to be sweeter.

2. Do you listen to music while writing? If so, how important is music to your writing process? Do you do anything special to integrate music into your story-writing? (Okay, so I asked three questions. Oh well.)

Oh yes. I can't write without music, I draw a blank.  If I write an action/battle scene, I will use Two Steps From Hell , a dance or festival scene will have Blackmore's Night, certain scenes will cry for it's own unique song.  For example, in my NaNo novel, I have a pair of gypsy/charlatans, and I lived on Disney's 'Topsy Turvy', and 'Court of miracles'. Basically, when I start a scene, I think about the feel I want that Scene to have, and pick a song that helps. 

3. If you could have one of your original characters meet a character from your favorite book, who who would these characters be? 

I want Sullivan to meet Edward Cull- wait, thats not my favorite book....but it would be quite fun to watch Lord Sullivan Sanguini exterminate 'The Rogue Vampire Problem'...
I think I'd want Sullivan to meet Dracula instead...but wait...they do meet....Well, see, there ya go.

4. What is your biggest crush on a fictional character, if you ever had one?

Erik from Phantom of the Opera.  I'm not going to even go over how much my heart ached when I thought over how he died of a heart ache.  I cried myself to sleep the night after finishing the book.  However, Doyle's Sherlock Holmes ties pretty close.  I got pretty depressed when reality kicked in, and reminded me that Sherlock had never, and never will, exist. 
Also, Sky's Rane, Mirriam's Eristor, my Sullivan and My Vice all cut reeeeaaaaally close.

5. If you were writing a historical fiction novel, what time period would you choose for the setting? Why would you choose that time period?

Victorian or WW2.  I know the most about those eras, and love them too.

6. Would you want your story illustrated? If so, what kind of artistic style would you prefer? (manga, traditional, cartoonish, sketchy . . .?)

I kinda have a sort of aversion to pictures in YA/adult books...It ruins the fun of imagination.  And then it arises the problem, if a movie comes, it seems like it might be more difficult to find matching actors/actresses.

7. What is the biggest distraction for you while writing?

The Honorary Tea Spitters Club. Or, as we call ourselves....the Tea Spitters. 

8. If you have done or are currently doing NaNoWriMo, how do you set aside the entire month of November for writing?

Well, I kinda made it sorta clear to my family that I wouldn't stop my word count dragon from chewing them to pieces if they bothered me. It was hard, and on some days, I only got in 100 words because my family needed (*coughreallywantedcough*) to use our computer.  It stinks having just one computer that works mildly well in the house.

9. What are your thoughts on college as a writer? Do you view college positively, or as a hindrance to a writer?

I think college is a wonderful oppertunity to those who desire to go.  A writer's salary isn't the royal bounty, and it could help if you have a secondary job. Now, college isn't needed for that, but if you dream of being a writing Doctor, then by all means go.  I don't plan on attending college, or I don't think I do...What I want to do in my life can't be learned in a college session.  But I see nothing wrong with those who desire to.

10. If you had to choose, would you emulate from Charles Dickens' writing style, or from George Eliot's? Explain your choice.

Uhh....I've never read an Eliot work...So...Dickens...I 'spose.

11. What do people in your life think of you writing? Do they approve, or do they think you're strange? :)

My family honestly try supporting me, they are sweethearts, but they don't fully understand the needs and mental oddities a writer will posses. See, I've been writing all my life, but I was a closet writer until this past year, and even now I am pretty timid about letting people who I know in real life read my work.  Especially my parents.
So, they can't fully understand, since I'm the sole writer in the family.  And they are slowly learning that writing is just as much a talent and a skill you must hone as, saying, painting.   And all my friends are really good about it all, though.

 And now, these were so stolen from Mirriam's blog.  I was already answering questions, and so I was like, "Hey, why the everhood not?"

♥ Five ways to win your heart?  1) Call me 'Love'.  I know its a small thing, but it grinds on me like nothing else when a guy calls a girl 'babe'. She isn't a baby, and she isn't a pig. 2) Be considerate. When guys try to hard to be 'Mr. Toughguy' it bothers me.  I really find it heart tugging when a burnt marshmallow of a man shows his marshmallow side. 3) Love Christ with all his heart.  I find it really attractive when a guy is truly focused on Christ. 4) Cosplay. You know, if you propose to me in a dressed as a fictional character, I'm 50% more likely to say yes, ok? 5) Be fun. You dearly beloved followers might not know this, but I'm really timid, unless I have someone to be spunky with.  I'd toilet paper the mayor's house, but I need to take the side kick role.  The couple that pranks together stays together.

♥Something you feel strongly about? Abortion.

♥ A book you love? You said 'book' but I'm going to take it as plural. 'Phantom of the Opera' by Gaston Leroux, 'Dracula' by Bram Stoker, 'Chalice' by Robin McKinley, All the 'Lord of the Ring' series by J.R.R Tolkien, 'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens, the 'Sherlock Holmes' stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, and 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' by Baroness Emmuska Orczy.  Yes, I do in fact realize most of those are oldies.

♥ Pet Peeves? *cracks knuckles* Ok, lets start this train. 1) Girls being called 'babe', as explained. 2) Romance novel covers. nuff said. I mean, come ON, no Vampire is that tan. 3) When people drag things I love in the mud if they haven't watched it. 4) When the eggs in a carton aren't even on both side. 5) when colors items aren't arranged in a pattern. 5) When people think Erik (POTO) is either all bad or all 'sexy'. He isn't 'sexy' at all, and is a self professed killer, and yet isn't just that. 6) Twihards.

 ♥ How comfortable are you in your own skin? I'm a teen girl, there will be days I'm not very comfortable, but for the most part I think I'm growing into this skin.

♥ Something you always think ‘what if’ about? What if we are really all Zombie/Vampire hunters during the night, but our mind's are wiped so not to terrify society, and we can't remember? Or, what if deja vu is actually proof that time travel is possible? What if dreams are an alternate reality? What if some TV shows, books, movies are things that really happened and it was made into a show/book/movie so we wouldn't believe it was real?

♥ Five things you really want? hmm...a Hedgehog, a Castle, A Pink Motorcycle, a plane ticket, and published book with my name in the Author spot.

♥ A quote you try to live by? "Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn, then be a Unicorn"

♥ Five guys you find attractive? Lee Joon, Tom Hiddleston, Skeet Ulrich, Orlando Bloom, and Basil Rathbone. I'd marry that last man, if he wasn't dead 60+ years....

♥ Five women you think are beautiful? Scarlett Johansson, Scarlett Pomers (Scarlets today...), Taylor Swift, Miranda Otto (as Eowyn) and Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher).

♥ Something you’re currently worrying about? There is currently a personal matter that I don't wish to discuss, but if you follow me on twitter or if we are friends on FB, you know what it is.

♥ What do you hope your future will be like? I want to write forever up until I die. And someday I hope to own a tea and book nook in some British town. I want to live in a tiny, cute, cozy flat above it, and just spend my day keeping shop and writing. And, I hope to meet that special somebody, and we can live happily ever after. With out pet dragon and Unicorn.

♥ Five weird things that you like? The smell of Horses. When someone says I speak old fashioned (yep. Apparently I'm a Shakespearean actor with my fancy dawg language, y'all). Licorice Jelly Bellies. Pens that splurt out an unholy amount of ink. Being freezing cold.

♥ Something that you’re proud of? Well, as in myself, I'm proud of....uh...I dunno. O.o And of others...I really don't know either. o.O

♥ A problem that you’ve had? Well, I get angry REALLY easily. Like, hot headed Irish girl here. But I also forget EVERYTHING. Which, I suppose I guess is a good combo, when I get angry, it's like a white hot flash, and then I forget it. XD

♥ Something that you miss? Can you miss something you never really had? If yes, than England. I miss England.
♥ One thing you’re excited for? Les Miserables, The Hobbit, Star Trek 2, An upcoming shopping trip with my Mum, hopefully meeting Autumn when she moves, and Thor 2. And Sherlock season 3. Wait...you said 1 thing...oh well.

♥ Something that bullets your whole day? Well, since I'm pretty forgetful, not many things can truly ruin a day unless someone dies/is hurt/or some other tragedy.  But if my knees/spine start flaring up, than that too.

♥ Put your iPod on shuffle and name the first ten songs that play? Once Upon a December from the Anatasia movie, and At the Beginning from the same movie. Playing with the Big Boys Now (Hans Zimmer). Under a Violet Moon (Blackmore's Night). Undo It (Carrie Underwood). Lipstick (Orange Caramel). Angel of Music (Andrew Lloyd Webber). It's Time (Imagine Dragons). Africa (Toto). and River Lullaby (Hans Zimmer).

♥ Things you like and dislike about yourself? My hair. yep. and my long lanky legs.

♥ What are you wearing? Jeans, and pink frumpy shirt. It's comfy

♥ What do you think of school? We are unschooled, and I really really like it. Like, a lot.

♥ What makes you happy? How can something so immense be summed up in one post? A lot of things make me happy. Like when I create the perfect Bokah, when I write something beautiful, When my hair is nicely washed and behaving right.  Opening a new book, visiting the library.  The light my Atticus Lamp puts off, the darkness of my bedroom.  When I find the perfect pen, when Apples are sweet and crunchy.  Green eyes, and sweet words from friends.  Story updates from Mirriam, finding pictures of characters, new songs, and the color pink.  Chocolate and Hot french fries, long phone calls, and when my room stays neat.  Cloudy days, seeing the Union Jack in odd places, telling people "Allons-y!" and them responding correctly. Getting mail, and packages tied up with strings, and finishing sewing projects. Wearing new clothes, and riding a bike. Puppy kisses, and Kitten mews. Starting a TV show, and falling in love with fictional people. When I get a compliment, and when I give a well received compliment. When I say something funny, and when other's truly pay attention to what I say.  Romance novels that aren't sexual, and fangirl feels. Traveling and when I look pretty, and baby smiles.  Finding long words that I can use everyday, and the smell of roses. Having a little kid come and randomly start talking to me, and finding unlikely friends.
A lot of things make me happy.

♥ What makes you angry? Abortion, seeing teens who inflict self harm, ask for help, but don't really want help.  Being woken up before 7AM. Being talked to before 7AM. Being looked at before 7AM.  Having to move before 7AM.  Having to act like I don't want to eat brains before 7AM. Seeing Mother's treat their children like trash in public places, and knowing the kids get worse at home.

So, that was fun.  And I know I'm supposed to tag 11 more people for the first tag, but everyone I'd want to tag have been, so bleh. ;D

And, notice the new page up in my header's blue yonder? The one called 'My Adoxography'? Yep. It has all my current writing projects. Check it out if thou desire to know so.

And....I want to do a real to truly post soon, but I'm just caught in a whirlpool of current events in my life, (I'm not going to say much, but I have a new sibling.  His name is Samual Nathan, and he is probably not going to make it. This will be the first miscarriage in our family, so, it's hard. And I've been pretty much rocking and rolling the house so Mama can take it easy. Pray for us, please?). and writing. boy. I've done a lot of writing.

Ok, now.


  1. Do you have any tips for authors? Should they write an outline first or should they ust start in the book, pour their heart into and then think about editing later? How do you go about with your writing? Are there any other suggestions that you have? Thanks.

    1. I'm honoured that you actually asked me such questions! I mean....I've never considered myself an author, but a word writer....

      Varied methods work differently for each person, and for each novel. I tend to just pour my heart into a novel, and edit later. But there have been some I have been more detailed in making sure it is edited as written.

      I'd love to talk more in detail with you, shoot me an email! (the contact page up above).

  2. I just saw this and I had a wonderful time reading your thoughtful answers! Thanks for doing my tag! Heh
