The Writer’s Tag

 

Deborah Kelty is a Christian writer based in Wales (how awesome is that?). She recently tagged me for the “When You Learn More About me” Writer’s Questionnaire, an honor I am axcited to participate in (mostly because that saves me from having to come up with a blog post topic for Tuesday, I’ll be honest with you).

Liebster Award Tag + 11 Questions Answered

Hey look! The wonderful Hannah Krynicki tagged me in her post for the Liebster Award. She’s an awesome person and writer with brilliant ideas and thoughts, so please, check out her blog and give her a follow. Thanks Hannah!

So, tags have rules. I need to answer 11 questions, list 11 random facts, tag 11 people and give them 11 questions to answer. You’d think the person who created this tag really liked the number 11. Now, on to those questions from Hannah.

20 Questions to Ask Your Plot and Characters

Writerly tags are, believe it or not, one of the biggest things that make me think about my WIP more in depth. Most of the tags I’ve participated in (the Six Question Character Challenge being my absolute favorite) made me ask questions of my plot and characters that I’d never even thought to ask. For instance, before participating in the aforementioned tag, I had no idea what my MC’s MBTI type was, where my main six characters saw themselves in ten years, or that my villain resembled Anton Yelchin. Getting to know little details about my characters also revealed so much more about my plot, even future book ideas for later in the series! It results in much elation, as you may well understand if you’re a writer. Writing up Six Questions Character Challenge made my week. I love talking about my characters to begin with, but answering questions I didn’t know about them in the first place made the experience so much more enlightening and enjoyable.

Life Beyond Our Galaxy: In Which I Examine Possibilities and Rant about Sci-Fi

Last fall, I went to an ICR conference (Institute for Creation Research) and got to hear an astrophysicist, Jason Lisle, talk about how science confirms biblical creation. It was absolutely enthralling. The overall topic isn’t related to this post, but he did mention the impossibility of extraterrestrial life forms towards the end.

Tag You’re It: The Infinity of Dreams Award and 11 Questions Answered

A while ago I was tagged by a blogger who I like never mention at all: the brilliant, word-savvy friend and co-writer Hannah Heath (thank you Hannah) with her tag called the “Infinity of Dreams Award.” Whoo! If that title doesn’t sound ambitious, I don’t know what does. I suggest you hop on over and check out her blog. Even if you’re not a writer, those of you who like a good sense of humor and a load of nerd references would really enjoy those posts. Plus, she recently published her debut short story Skies of Dripping Gold, which is a must-read for everyone.

Now then, on to answer those 11 questions and tag other bloggers below. (Why is it always 11 questions? Just a wandering thought.)

The Writer’s Thoughts: Faith, Asking Questions, and Our Limited Minds

Most of this post is just my own thoughts. Read on and don’t be afraid to agree or disagree or note any flaws. I am, after all, just a young writer.

As mortal beings, do we have limited minds? Are we unable to understand everything, though we try? Perhaps we were created with a limited amount of knowledge, but we are never happy with it; we want to know more. Whether this might be true or not, we are instilled with a passion, a love to learn, to gain knowledge, to understand. Everything. But maybe we can go only so far. Life is full of mystery. We have much more to learn, but there is a limit. For example, does the universe have bounds or does it go on forever? There’s no way of knowing … yet. And maybe we’ll never know. There’s some people who hate not being able to understand everything. And then there are people who like the mystery and the questions so they can come up with their own theories.

In Which I am Tagged for the Liebster Award and Answer Random Questions

A while ago I was tagged by Gabrielle Massman for the Liebster Award. I try not to get involved in most personal tag chains, as that is not what this blog is about, but since these questions seem more blog-relevant and for the importance of the Liebster Award, I decided to do this one. So, here goes.Read More »
