Blogging · Writing

Tumblr Tag

So I just found out I was tagged on Tumblr. That link is to my actual Tumblr, which isn’t great, but who are you to judge my blogging accounts?

It was quite a nice, wonderful, strange, and awkward feeling. It was a mixture of all these emotions because I was quite surprised and shocked to be honest. Anyhow, I’ll link the post below if you’re interested.

I’ve been nominated (for lack of a better word) to answer the four questions below.

***

1. What gif/picture/phrase best encapsulates your writing process?

This might sound vain but the picture that best encapsulates my writing process (more accurately, my thought process as I write) is an image I created myself with the help of a photo generator. These generators are ubiquitously populated in the World Wide Web but extremely useful. I first posted this on my Tumblr dashboard and apparently some of the Tumblr universe agree with me too.

A crappy first draft is worth more than a non-existing one.

2. Do you plot or pants or do a mixture of the two when writing?

I am definitely a mixture of the two. It also depends on the project I am working on. For novels, I tend to plan more. For short stories, I usually have the beginning down before I start writing and most of the time, the ending comes to me while I am working. Poetry and other shorter pieces of works are written more in the moment, fly by the seat of my pants type of thing. So yeah, it depends.

3. Tell me about your relationship with your favourite book.

I’m not sure I have a favourite book. But I do have a handful of books that I love and adore. It’s hard to describe to people that don’t read or don’t like books. Let’s just say my relationship to my favourite books is a thousand times stronger than to anyone I’ve ever met in my entire life.

4. How long have you been a writer?

I want to say I’ve been a writer forever and that I was born to write. To be honest, that isn’t true. I think I’ve been writing for about four years and blogging for one.

This is the Tumblr post I was tagged in. Big thanks to @MiaHayson for inspiring this post. She has a Tumblr too.

I’m not entirely sure if I should nominate anyone (is this an award?) but I love all of you and you’re all winners of this semi-award/semi-post. If you so fancy, feel free to answer the questions above or even below as well.

Because I am curious, I’ll add a few questions of my own too. If you do choose to answer them, send me the link to your blog or the post because I’d love to read your response.

  1. What type of writer are you? Interpret this any way you like.
  2. In your opinion, what is the most exciting part of the writing process?
  3. If you had to pursue another hobby aside from writing, what would it be and why?
  4. What is one thing you want to do, preferably as a writer, that you haven’t done yet?

Just spreading the love around and maybe inspiring you or inspiring a future post of yours.

Speak your mind!
