7 Facts About Myself
1.) I always put parentheses after a number if it is to number a list (as you have seen here). Why, I do not know, I think the number looks naked without it.
2.) I am terrified of heights. Need I say more?
3.) I laugh the hardest at “blonde jokes”. Probably because I am a brunet (well, currently my hair is a dark red, but that’s still dark 😉
4.) I am a notebookaholic. I have three huge buckets of them under my bed, and yes, most have been written in. Most.
5.) I am currently crazy about a game called What’s The Phrase. I wish my opponents would answer quicker…..
6.) My two most favorite songs are Blink by Revive and My Wish by Rascal Flatts.

Questions From Ana
1.) What is your dream job and why? I am torn between an in-print author and an editor. I have wanted to be in-print for quite some time now, but here recently I have been looking towards being an editor. Editing is what I have a knack for, which is not necessarily a good thing when I am trying to write, my mind is constantly editing…..
2.) Name five of your favorite blogs. Only five? Oh boy….. Well, Red Lettering has very quickly become probably my top fav, and Athelas is a blogging buddy that I am so glad I stumbled across. Fictionally is definitely a fav, just cause Grace is awesome! Go Teen Writers is a great writing blog that I highly recommend to EVERY teen writer! Of Battles, Dragons, and Swords of Adamant is a pretty cool fantasy blog, I love the layout and Gillian writes some pretty awesome short-stories. A-Blog-From-The-Heart is also pretty neat blog and very encouraging.
3.) Why did you start blogging? I started this blog literally the day after I got home from my favorite church camp, YFN (Youth For the Nations), in 2012. That year was the year that I knew I would be a writer. The theme at YFN that year was Accelerate the Jesus Movement, I gave that title to this blog so that I would always remember where and when I found my destiny!
4.) What is the word count for the longest piece you’ve ever written? Like at one time or overall? Hmm….I am going to go with overall. The longest manuscript that I have written would be A Queen is Knighted (which still isn’t finished), having a total of 11,588 words. I know not much, but, you have to keep in mind that I am constantly starting new stories, so I haven’t worked on this one much.
5.) What is your favorite genre to read? Historical Fiction, however I have begun to become a fan of fantasy and Sci-fi.
6.) If you are going to college, what’s your dream college? Well, because I am home-schooled, I am able to take an online college course now and graduate with a Bachelors Degree in writing when I am 19ish. So, I don’t plan on going to a physical college and even if I was, I don’t know that I have a dream college….
7.) What is your favorite Disney animated movie? Please don’t tell me you’ve never watched a Disney movie. Disney movie…hmmm….I’m thinking probably Cars 2 or Peter Pan. I could watch both of them over and over!
8.) What is your favorite classic book? The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain or The Blood Ship by Norman Springer.
9.) What was your favorite book as a child? Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain 🙂
10.) What are your other hobbies besides reading, writing, and blogging? Riding 4-wheelers, shopping, walking up and down the never-ending aisles of Half-Priced Books hoping that I will find a sign that says “Load up as many books as your car will hold for no money down”(!). I love shopping for notebooks as well!
I feel like I will be nominating the same blogs that I have nominated before, so you do not have to do this if you don’t feel like it or if you have already been nominated for one of these awards 🙂 Also, you can choose which award (or both) that you want to accept.
I cannot come up with any more, so, if I did not mention you and your blog, feel free to be nominated!!!
