I did not actually get tagged for this BUT I’m in desperate need of a blog idea as all this quarantine isn’t exactly inspiring me. I’ve seen this on multiple blogs so I guess I’ll tag at least two people who I KNOW I read their answers, Jenna and Kenzie
So, without further ado, go forth and learn my deepest and darkest secrets.
Never Have I Ever Started a Novel I Did Not Finish
HA. (this means that I have plenty of unfinished novels)
Never Have I Ever Written a Story Completely by Hand
Unless stories written in middle school count, no. I have simply ghastly handwriting (I CAN however do nice lettering and stuff like that. Not just like, regular letters. Fancy letters yes), and if I wrote a whole book by hand it would 1: take forever. 2: look awful. 3: I might not be to understand what it says when I’m done.
Never Have I Ever Changed Tenses Midway Through a Story
Um, haha. Yeah about that…I have changed tenses and even POV because sometimes my BRAIN JUST DIES, and sometimes I honestly can’t recall if something is written in 1st person or 3rd.
Never Have I Ever Not Researched Anything Before Starting a Story
First off, I’m not sure how far back these questions intend to go in my writing career (do my 9 year old stories count?). Again, in middle school I researched SQUAT. Now a days though, hmmmm….don’t think I have???? I feel like I at least research SOMETHING. Like, names.
Never Have I Ever Changed My Protagonist’s Name Halfway Through the Draft
Protag no. Everyone else, yes. My side character’s are lucky if their names don’t change, or if they all of a sudden get a name halfway through.
Never Have I Ever Written A Story in a Month of Less
Story not novel, eh?? THEN YES. I wrote the Faerie Prince in less than a week in the middle of Nutcracker madness.
Never Have I Ever Fallen Asleep When Writing
Wait….you guys sleep?????
Never Have I Ever Yelled in All Caps in the Middle of a Novel
I honestly don’t know. My ancient memory fails me.
Never Have I Ever Corrected Someone’s Grammar irl/online
NEVER online, that’s just rude. Real life however….
Never Have I Ever Used “I’m Writing” As an Excuse
Heck I use it every day. The ultimate benefit of treating writing as a job.
Never Have I Ever Killed a Character Based off Someone in Real Life
Never have I ever based a character off of someone in real life. So there.
Never Have I Ever Used Pop Culture References in a Story
Again, my memory fails me. Honestly I write words and then forget them. I mean that’s the point of writing them down right? You don’t have to remember what they are??
I however do like leaving Easter eggs in stories *wiggle eyebrows*
Never Have I Ever Written Between the Hours of 1 am and 6 am
YES I HAVE BABY. Those are the hours of glory during the first night of Nanowrimo
Never Have I Ever Drank an Entire Pot of Coffee While Writing
I’ve never even drank a full pot of coffee. A pot of tea however…
Never Have I Ever Written Down Dreams for Potentials for Novels
Yes, though it’s rare because most of the time things are just too weird.
Never Have I Published an Unedited story on internet/blog/Wattpad
Yes and they are GONE. DELETED. YOU CANNOT FIND THEM.
Never Have I Ever Procrastinated Homework Because I Wanted to Write
I was homschooled and didn’t go to college so never had homework sooooo I think I’m disqualified *buzzer rings*
Never Have I Ever Written So Long That my Wrists Hurt
My hands shake does that count?
Never Have I Ever Spilled a Drink on My Laptop While Writing
It has been years, centuries, since such a tragedy has occurred.
Never Have I Ever Forgotten to Save My Work/Draft
Nope. *knocks on wood*
Never Have I Ever Finished a Novel
8 to be exact.
Never Have I Ever Laughed like an Evil Villain While Writing a Scene
Softly. Some soft villainous chuckles.
Never Have I Ever Cried While Writing a Scene
Maybe? Maybe a teensy weensy bit? There was one scene that I wrote that left me shaking afterwards if that counts.
Never Have I Ever Created Maps for Fictional Worlds
I used to ALL THE TIME.
Never Have I Ever Researched Anything Shady for a Novel
*peeks around dark corner* psssst! Hey! Want to tell me about train hopping and drugs?
*Drumroll* THE END
I feel like most people at this point have done this tag, but if you haven’t NOW IS YOUR CHANCE.
