Good day Perkies!
Today’s post is going to be a tag! say hello to the writing tag. I’ll be sharing some tiny facts and advice with you guys. So I hope this is useful and that I don’t bore you too much 🙊
WHAT GENRES, STYLES, AND TOPICS DO YOU WRITE ABOUT?
Well Ive only just started writing but everyone who knows me understands the obsession i have with fantasy 😍 so many different stories have been forming in my head (mostly at 3 am while im trying to sleep) But even though im a sleep deprived lady Ive never regretted it once (okay maybe that one time but it WAS one time). Most of my stories are fantasy/YA based but im also planning on writing a steampunk, Victorian type story so we shall see how that turns out.
There are 2 styles that I love:
-First person narration: Because I love feeling like I am the story and that im slightly badass and not just an almost 20 year old who studies psychology for a living.
-Third person narration: Sometimes I feel like its easier to write this way but i suppose i switch every once in a while.
Well….get ready for an overload of topics. BUT these are not all in one book so we can all relax now.
- Vampires, Witches & Warlocks, Faeries, Werewolves, and my own personal twist Foxes.
- Rival kingdoms.
- A legendary and lost queen.
- Fae warriors.
- Badass ladies.
- A million powers all in one little person.
- Mermaids and the like.
- Dark fantasy and wit.
- A banshee who’s part of a choir.
- 99.9% Magic.
- Attractive males.
That should satisfy your hungry hearts for a while *twirls to the next question*
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WRITING?
A year maybe? i write bits and pieces here and there, nothing actually complete. I start writing for one of my series but stopped because i changed so many ideas. Now its just sitting there weeping in one of my folders. I did write a short story though for a competition and i got 2nd place! 😁 im very proud of that little piece of work and got amazing comments from amazing people on bookstagram + mom and grandma!
WHY DO YOU WRITE?
It bring me joy. I just love the thought of my characters being as real to readers as they are in my own little head. Ive also realized why authors love to torture us readers. The moment i come up with some shocking plot twist i automatically feel satisfaction i swear one day I’ll probably be drinking your tears in my mug for breakfast.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO WRITE?
For me the best time is either early in the morning when everyone is asleep or at night when everyone is busy doing their own thing. I like to write in peace and quiet and far away from the world as possible. Why would you want your family to see you sobbing, shrieking and yelling at fictional characters?
PARTS OF WRITING YOU LOVE VS PARTS YOU HATE?
- That moment when you get the most brilliant idea just by staring at a wall.
- The way the words just seem to flow.
- When all the sleepless night pay off and you’ve got the best plot put together.
- When you get the most positive comments from people ❤️
- Creating characters that are simply 👌🏽
- Sleepless nights filled with overthinking and no ideas whatsoever.
- Not being able to give a character the name they deserve.
- When an idea seems brilliant the night before and then you wake up and just think what the actual hell?
HOW DO YOU OVERCOME WRITERS BLOCK?
I sit on pinterest the entire day just staring at all the art and fantasy story ideas along with some inspirational quotes and BAM it hits me eventually. Another method is watching tv. i binge a bunch of series and sometimes that helps my brain function again. Also reading!
ARE YOU WORKING ON SOMETHING AT THE MOMENT?
Summer is just around the corner and Ive vowed to write my first novel during that time. I haven’t figured out a title yet but it will come to me eventually. My characters are waiting for me to start bringing them to life and i couldn’t be more excited!
WRITING GOALS THIS YEAR?
- Write my first novel.
- Edit it and have it ready for future publishing.
- To start writing the series that started it all.
That was fun!
