Yes. I’ve been absent for an insanely long time. And yes, it’ll probably happen again in the future. I’m not going to promise to post every week this summer, not even every two weeks. Heck, I might not even get around to it every month.
Why? I’m working as a full time lifeguard this year (Which means seven days a week, with maybe Saturday off. The joy.), and I’ll also be juggling 4-H market sheep, selling one of my horses(Because, honestly, I really don’t have the money to pay 120 dollars a month when I don’t have time to ride and I’m saving for college.) getting my driver’s license, and doing some Algebra that I missed last year and left-over Biology(ugh!) during the summer.
So therefore, I won’t be posting very much. I’m not going to abandon this blog, but it will slow down immensely during the summer months, and other than the occasional photo shoot, art dump, tag or novel update, you probably won’t see me very much. Consider yourself forewarned.
And now, on a happier note, I’ll tell you about the future of this blog.
I will be updating my theme, graphics, font, and name shortly. This blog has changed names… what, four times? But this will be my final change, unless someday I decide to move to an “official” author website completely. Currently, I am working on building an author site that will stay separate from my blog.
I am going to clean up a bunch of my old posts, delete some things, add some pages, and update my “About” page. I won’t be deleting anything good, but some of my old posts from when I first started will definitely be going, just to make this site less cluttered and chaotic.
Short stories will be added! I’ve written several, and when the time comes, I will be adding them on their own page, so look forward to that!
Book reviews–I will now offer my superb literary skills to authors, including an in-depth blog review, Goodreads review, and possibly an amazon review, if I can get the site to work with me. (It really hates me.) So if you’re an author, know an author who wants a book reviewed, or just want me to read something over and give my opinion, comment below. I check this blog more often than my emails, so notify me first on here and then send me the email(I will add a contact form shortly.)
A serial story will be coming, as of the start of the school year. This gives me all summer to perfect it and plot, plus I like making you guys wait. (I know, I’m evil. It’s an INTJ thing…) So if you like outlaws princes, telepathic horses, cursed eyes, plagues, mysteries, romance, bandits, Robin Hood, and mysterious swordsman, start counting down the days till school.
Excited yet? I sure am.
Well, that’s all I’ve got for today. See you next time,
And I return, my brave dragons! Today, I am going to be praising the very…er….creative….name for this tag. Congratulations, Kate. It’s very poetic of you.
Anyways, I shall now attempt to answer these questions that were so gloriously handed to me by the most epic Sarah Baran of the Sarcastic Elf.
1. Do you secretly plot world domination?
Hehehehe…. I’m an INTJ. Why do you even bother to ask?
2. What book could read over and over again and never get bored?
Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke, The Chronicles of Narnia, Lotr, The Chronicles of Prydain, and Howl’s Moving Castle.
There are no other options. Deal with it.
3. Which fictional character do you think would be the most boring to meet in real life?
Susan, TCoN. I find her pretty flat and boring, and she’s not in any of my favorite books. Plus, what Disney did with Prince Caspian…. *gags* *chills* The horror…. (And seriously, she pretty much ruined his life in the movie. Now he’ll be forever in love with her, and she’ll outlive him by possibly thousands of years.)
And if we’re going for most irritating–
Okay, let me clarify. *hides from Lotr fan mob* Movie Frodo. Book Frodo is awesome. Movie Frodo… I understand you’re trying to be all noble and sad and such, but really… I would rather watch Aragorn than listen to you being depressed.
4. If you lived in a fantasy world, what would you want your name to be?
5. Would you rather have a spaceship or a dragon?
Uh, why is this even a question? I mean, have you seen HTTYD? After that, there is no doubt left in my mind.
Besides, I *may* or may not have a fear of big black empty spaces filling with giant balls of fire and brimstone where you can die just by going outside.
Also, how can you not love this? *fangirling*
6. If you could burn one book, which would you choose?
What! Burning books! *unsheathes claws* How dare you! I would never burn a book. (Okay, I would never burn a book other than the Pilgrim’s Progress. I tried to read that once, and didn’t make it through the first page. It was like Brain Death.)
7. Would you rather be an Elf, a Dwarf, a Hobbit, or an Orc?
Elf. I don’t like being short, or hairy, or…. black and slimy and foul-smelling. Not to mention the teeth. I mean seriously, do you orcs ever brush your teeth? Your breath alone is enough to knock out a normal person.
*shrugs it off, because hey, I’m an INTJ*
Also, I get to do things like this:
*favorite scene in whole movie* *will watch RotK just for this scene*
8. What was the last book you cried over?
Me? Cry? Never.
9. Which three fictional characters do you most identify with?
Is it bad they’re all really sarcastic guys? But seriously, one can teleport(plus, he’s…Loki. You can’t think of Marvel without Loki. People who watch Marvel fall into two categories: those who love Loki and mentally insane people.), one rides a dragon, and one is…. Edmund. The king of sass with a British accent.
10. Would you rather have a lightsaber or a sword?
Oh man, big life decision here. One, I can be a Jedi(which is awesome), and one I can be a ninja/ranger.
I really might have to think about this…
Fine, a sword. Katana, to be exact. Jedi are awesome, but… Ninjas are sweet. Plus, I get to dress in black and hide in shadows and creep random people out.
11. How long do you think you’d survive in a fictional world?
Hahahaha… I’m not going to answer that. It’s humiliating.
What do you think? Want to do it? Well, here’s your questions.
What fictional character would you like to bring into this world?
What fictional character are you like the most? What villain are you like the most?
How long would you last in a fictional world, dear? I’m worried about you.
What book/series do you wish you’d been born into?
Dragon or spaceship? Elf or Hobbit?
How many of your favorite characters have been killed?
Do you secretly plot world domination?
What fictional character do you think would be most interesting to meet IRL? Which would be the most boring?
Are you a writer? If so, do your characters prefer dark, medium, or white chocolate? Bonus points if your villain is villainous enough to love unsweetened cocoa.
What’s the saddest book you’ve ever read? Did it make you weep in misery when all your favorite people died?
What character would you gladly… er… kill? Why?
Bonus Question: Jedi or Ninja?
And there you have it. My questions. And as I’m feeling particularly lazy today(I have a head cold and my little sisters have the stomach flu, which means I’ll get it next) I’m not going to force anyone to do this. Except for Britt. If you read this, you must do this. You know who I’m talking about.
(Here that, Britt? I’m giving you an excuse to blog. I’m nice. Now we can both get behind schedule on tags. I think I still have one from September….)
Anyway, nice seeing you all. If I’m absent for the next couple weeks it’s probably cause I’m in the hospital coughing my lungs out. But that’s nothing for you to worry about.
(I’ll live. I’ve had–er, done worse to my characters. That counts for experience, right?)
Btw, funny thing. I took an IQ test because I was bored, and it said I had 120 IQ, which is above average. Then I took another to get an average score, and it said I had 150. Apparently I’m a genius. (Ya, I wish.)
So other than strange IQ scores which I’m to bored with to bother getting more averages on, I’m also apparently 42 in mental age and extremely left-brained. Weird, considering I’m an artist. Perhaps I just have many talents? (For those of you who don’t bother to dabble in psychology and the finer workings of the human brain, left-brained means I’m more like Einstein than Da Vinci. Intelligent, but not extremely artistic.)
On a side note, I can now tell all my friends I’m a genius. I’m sure I’ll get a kick out of their reactions for a while. xD
What do you think? Are you going to do the tag? (You better, or else…) Do you like psychology?
