1) It’s been an age since I spoke about my WIP(s) 2) since when do I do tags?
Okay, so the last time that I spoke about an actual WIP that I was doing was soooo long ago. Okay, I don’t even think that it was even that long ago! You can find it here (part of a wrap-up!) or here (which actually was AGES AGO!)
I want to thank MAY for nominating me for this tag, and you can find her posts here.
- No tagging back
- Tag four people
- Thank the person who tagged you
- Come up with 10 new questions (May added this rule to avoid confusion!!)
Here are May’s questions!
what is your current WIP about, and what’s its status? (ie. plotting, writing, editing, etc.) — just putting it out theRE MAY IS MEAN
So my current WIP is basically about this kingdom in a huge continent where the king has banned these powers and his daughter is to be sacrificed and then she ends up feeling and she basically bands together with other people who have these powers and it’s all about them taking over the kingdom. SO DARK I LOVE.
I’m literally torturing all the characters and making them feel PAIN andit’s so fun to make them hurt.Howeverrrrr… there’s a second one that I’m sort of collecting ideas for SINCE MY BRAIN CANNOT STOP AND FOCUS ON ONLY ONE, and that’s contemporary and about a soft boy™ who has anxiety and suffers from abuse and is also a speed skater (the abuse he receives is rooted in this –> father overly pushing and mean™).
He meets this girl (who is of African American descent who loves to paint + stay in her head while she does) in school while doing a group project (no romance) and they both learn how to handle, not fix what they’re going through and support each other and become friends and have an adventure!
do you plot things out and/or outline, or just figure it out as you write?
OUTLINE OUTLINE OUTLINE.
Basically, all of the WIP1 that wrote about above is all outlining, which I’m going to keep on expanding and working on in my free time, and then hopefully start to write during the summer holidays. –> hopefully all the outlining will make it easier when writing because I will have MORE to write on/look back on for inspo!
^^^^ I actually sound like I know what I’m doing.. I don’t.
WHY ARE THESE QUESTIONS SO DIFFICULT?
what are some book ideas you want to write in the future?
Obviously, I mentioned the contemporary project that I’m going to start working on??? I’m not sure when!
Since when do I know what I’m doing?
… oh wait…. never.
out of the characters you’ve written so far, who are your favourites?
what’s your writing routine if any? (ie. snacks, music, time of day, location, etc.)
I usually just attack my keyboard? I tend to write at night??? In bed??? And I can;t write with music on because then I end up getting confused with what I’m trying to write?????????????????????????
^^^ as you can tell, I AM NOT GOOD AT TALKING ABOUT MY WRITING.
show your WIP’s aesthetic in images or words (or both)!
ERM okay, Pinterest screenshots here we come. (I’m professional okay??? DON’T QUESTION IT. )

what (or who) motivates you to write?
I think that a lot of writing blogs motivate me, as well as those in the book community who also scream about writing.
Reading books inspires me and motivates me to keep on working towards my writing and to constantly strive to make my writing the best that it can be.
what do you find is the easiest part of writing? The hardest?
hardest = talking people.
why do people even need to talk! I think that as I develop as a writer I’d like to delve into more marginalised diversities, but right now I find it really tricky because OBVIOUSLY, I can’t be as thorough as I’d like when it comes to researching diversities to make sure that I do it right I think that one of the easiest parts is just description. It’s great to pad out a scene, control pace and the focus of the reader!
what genre will you never try, and why?
I don’t think that I’ll ever really try sci-fi? It’s not really my genre to read, and I just,, I’d worry too much about plot holes! One that I would also stay away from is Historical Fiction because of ALL THE RESEARCH????? It’s enough to research while writing a contemporary set IN OUR TIME let alone having to know everything about a different era! (EVEN THOUGH I STUDY HISTORY???)
Am I tagging people????? NOOOO because I don’t know who does a wip thing/ who writes???? SO. TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS??
Do you have a WIP? What is it about??? DO YOU PLOT, WRITE, OR JUST WHACK DOWN IDEAS AS THEY ARRIVE? Who are some of your favourite characters that YOU’VE written?? Do you SHARE your WIPS? Are you planning any more for the future?? Let me knowww!!!
