My Writing Talent
I think this is the hardest part to answer. When I started this blog, I planned to do only traditional blog posts, and that’s where I still feel most comfortable–writing essay-esque long-form blog posts. Poetry is what I dabble in on the side, since writing one of those long-form posts (from coming up with an idea, to researching, to writing, to editing and formatting) can easily take most of a week to complete. Recently, however, I have been reading a lot more poetry and trying to hone my own poetic writing skills.
1. If you had a time machine, where would you go back to?
I assume you actually meant “when” would I go back to 😛 , but I feel kinda lucky that this was phrased the way it was because my answer includes both a “where” and a “when”. I have recently been enthralled by the idea of the American expatriate writers of the Lost Generation in Paris. I would love to meet Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and the Fitzgeralds.
2. Who are three people on WordPress who have inspired you?
I answered a very similar question in my Awesome Blogger Award post, so I’ll share three more.
1. João-Maria of (CALIATH) for gorgeous prose
2. Lucy of Lucy’s Works for beautifully descriptive poetry
3. Shreya of Wild Scared Crazy for consistently posting thought-provoking ideas via poetry
3. What are three books from your childhood that you wouldn’t mind reading today?
I’ve answered a similar question before and I gave my late elementary school/early middle school answers, so here are my early elementary school answers:
1. Go, Dog. Go! by P.D. Eastman
2. Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
3. Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
- If you could live anywhere in the world other than where you live right now, where would you choose?
- Who was your favorite author when you were a child?
- Do you prefer warm drinks (like coffee, tea, or hot cocoa) or cold drinks (like lemonade or smoothies, etc.)?
