I Messed Up Book Tag!

Hey everyone! It’s Monday and that means it’s Memorial Day. What are you doing to celebrate? Let me know! As you might’ve guessed by the title, I am doing the I Messed Up Book Tag. I was unofficially tagged by the amazing Catia @ The Girl Who Reads Too Much!  Go check her out! A shout out to anyone who has done this tag and also officially or unofficially tagged me for this. Thank you 🙂 Let’s get started!

1) A Character Appearance You Misread or Imagined Differently.

Oh gosh, I misread and imagine characters differently all the time. For the sake of this question though, I’m going to say… Hazel from TFIOS. I always pictured her differently.

2) A Character Name That You’ve Been Pronouncing Wrong.

This wasn’t too recently. When I recently read Harry Potter for the first time, I pronounced Hermione’s name wrong in my head.

3) An Overused Trope that is Your Guilty Pleasure.

I honestly had to look up trope. I realize that I have a thing for people following in love at first sight. I can’t get enough. It makes the story so adorable and amazing.

 4) A Cliché Character Type That You Like Better On Screen than Reading About:

I honestly have no idea. I don’t watch many book to film adaptions so I can’t honestly answer this.

5) A Word/Phase You Learned Because of It’s Use in a Book:

There are so many words/phases I’ve learned. One of them is Muggle from the Harry Potter series. This might not count since it’s not a “real” series but who cares?

6) Have You Ever Not Read or Completed a Required Reading Book for School?

I must be too much of a good student. I always complete every required book and stay right with the class. I also do all the required assignments that go with it.

 7) Have You Ever (or Wanted to) Skip a Chapter from the Point of View of a Charcter You Weren’t Interested In?

I don’t think this counts as a POV but I wanted to skip the fan fiction parts of Fangirl. I just wanted to get to more of Cath and Levi!

8) Have You Ever Cancelled Social Plans to Read a Book?

This is going to sound sad but no because I don’t normally have social plans 😦

What an awesome tag! Since I’m not good about remembering/knowing who has done this, I tag Everyone! You are all amazing people but everyone has messed up. Link your post of this in the comments so I can’t see what you’ve messed up on!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags! Happy Memorial Day 🙂

Writing 101 Day #1: Why Do I Write?

Hello everyone! Today I am beginning Writing 101. If you want all the details about the four week course I suggest that you check out this link here or my previous post. Today’s prompt is: Why Do I Write? I am indeed doing this as a free write but will not be doing the 15-30 minute timer. I will just be writing as much as I can for as long as I want.

I write because it’s one of my passions. Writing helps me release my stress. My anger, and my happiness. I write to create. To create new characters that are as unique as you and me. I write for enjoyment. Writing story upon story filled with adventure, fantasy, and humor. Poems upon poems filled with lines, rhyme, and word play. Whether it be assigned or for fun, I throw everything I have into it. In terms of writing for my blog, I have been trying to plan ahead of time because of how much homework and how busy I already have/am. My first week of school has passed and I am going to do whatever I can to post as much as I can. I love to write about things that I enjoy and love. In my case that is books, reading and writing. On my blog I have written 70 posts including this one. Those 70 posts have been written since June 2015. My blog is an enjoyment but also a chore if I put too much on my plate at once. I try to make blogging something to look forward to, not to dread. The bottom line to all this is this: I write for enjoyment. I have loved to write for quite a long time and would love to be an author. I hope that everyone that reads my blog posts will learn something new, whether it be about me or the topic.

That’s it! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s topic plus Creative Challenges.
