Hello Again!

What's uuuup? I decided to do the Gear Up to Get an Agent Blogfest (SEPTEMBER 12th!), which means it's Meet and Greet time! Feel free to drop a comment, ask a question, etc. I am here to introduce myself to you!

So, the rundown on yours truly: I am a sixteen-year-old Seattlite who dreams of someday juggling singing, writing, acting, and spreading the love to the far recesses of the globe! I'm a Leo and quite talkative, I've got about a billion really good friends (most of which are fictional and/or on the internet) and I like to think of myself as outgoing. :P Right, and I like smileys. And sarcasm. And languages (I am (almost) qua-lingual)! I am a writer first and foremost, a crazy teenager second. :)

RIGHT, so, on to the questions! Getting to Know You, part... uh... lost count.

-Where do you write? Anywhere I can. Usually wherever the computer is, which, at any given moment, could be in the dining room or the couch or my room. It changes hands a lot.

-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see? THE KITCHEN! Yeah, I'm on the couch right now. It's very comfortable.

-Favorite time to write? Any time I can write. Usually in the wee hours of the morning when my wonderful insomnia kicks up and my mom's not downstairs to yell at me.

-Drink of choice while writing? Orange soda of any kind. I channel my inner Hardison. (And Spinelli... what is it with hackers and orange soda?)

-When writing, do you listen to music or do you need complete silence? Depends. Like, usually I'll turn on Pandora, and then I get distracted, but then it'll play in the background and I'll just zone out writing. So yeah, depends.

-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it? Well, my latest manuscript is Way to Kill, which is my 2012 NaNovel. And you're going to think I'm crazy, but I got the idea from the cover I made for it. I have this thing where I find pretty pictures on Google and I want to edit them to make book covers. It turned out that way by total accident, but it looked sooo cool and I suddenly realized that I wanted to write a zombie novel. Not to mention, Riley is a character I usually fall back on for writing exercises, and I was excited to find something that fit her personality.

-What's your most valuable writing tip? Write whenever you can. Procrastination is a writer's greatest weakness-- once it gets going there's no way you'll get something done! WRITE! Even if it's crap, write!

SO, that's me! Nice to meetcha!
