The Get To Know Me Tag: Writer’s Edition

Do you ever just…completely forget about something? Like the fact that you have a blog? I think what happened is that I kept not having time to write posts/having no inspiration/not knowing what to write here so… I didn’t. And then it just…slipped my mind? And then I realized I haven’t posted since April… I’ve turned 22 since then. I’ve gone to a writing conference. I’ve gone to a board game convention (so. much. fun.). I got feedback from my lovely CPs on my YA Fantasy and I’ve written like…two and a half more drafts of said YA Fantasy, since the last time I posted. I’ve seen Infinity War like 12 times since I last blogged! Yeah…

SO. I saw the lovely Jameson @ LovelyWhatsoevers do this Get To Know You Tag and I thought what better way to get back into blogging??? Thus, here we are.

  1. Ooh, you did the tag! It sounds like you’ve had a lot of fun stuff going on lately! (Also, I am super in awe of your revision speed for your book. Mine have been soooo slow this year… *nervous chuckle*)

    Those hair colors sound awesome! That’s so cool that you’re ambidextrous. I’ve tried writing with my left hand but alas, I cannot.

    Local conferences are so fun! They have such neat resources and workshops to check out.

    Oh gosh. INFINITY WAR. I’ve only watched it once but I’m still freaking out over it. I can’t wait to rewatch it and see what details I missed though.

    Thanks for joining the tag! I loved seeing your answers!


    1. I loved reading your post so much, I just had to do it! (Honestly, I don’t usually edit this fast, I don’t know exactly how I did it???)

      I will never recover from Infinity War, I swear. I keep watching it and keep freaking out over it and I just love it but also it hurts me???


    1. I swear, my life is usually a lot more boring. I’ve just had a surprisingly hectic/mostly fun summer! I will definitely consider doing a post about my tattoos! I love them and I love talking about them! Thanks for commenting.
