Why did you start blogging?
I wanted both share my writing with an audience, as well as create a routine by which I was actually writing daily, which I’ve managed to do so far!
Who is your favourite blogger?
I’ve only really just started reading other blogs – I like the ones I’ve nominated, as well as the one that nominated me, but at the moment I’m still exploring really.
What keeps you going and motivated?
In terms of blogging – seeing the stats, getting likes and positive comments, really helps me to think that I’m doing something worthwhile. Also I don’t want to disappoint my followers!
In life – I have absolutely no idea
What is your weirdest habit?
What is your favourite cuisine?
Italian by far. That amazing country created pizza and pasta?! Bring on the carbs!
What is a personality trait you would like to change in yourself?
Procrastination. Like how I’m supposed to be revising for exams right now but instead I’m writing a blog post…
What are the first three things you always notice in a person?
I really have no idea – I’ll think about it next time I meet someone new, then let you know!
Which is the best book you have read to date?
There are so many amazing books out there! Not necessarily the ‘best book’, but my favourite series is The Belgariad by David Eddings – an epic quest, interesting and unique characters, lost kings, political intrigue, magic, and a sprinkling of High Fantasy clichés – what’s not to love? (Except its ‘of-its-time’ representation of female characters – not dreadful, but slightly lacking…)
How do you deal with the negative comments of the people about your appearance or anything else?
I suppress them inside in a turmoil of negative emotions… oops
What is the meaning of your blog name?
Um… I’m a girl… who likes stories…? I really didn’t think about it all that much, but I like it.
What is your goal in life?
I want to be a professional writer, and write at least one full length fantasy novel!
