Tell Me All About You…

I really like these questions posted on inkbiotic here is the link to Tell Me About You…

If you are a blogger, how would you describe what you write about? Are there specific themes you stick to or a style you use? (feel free to add a link)
– I am currently posting daily writing prompts. I also write short stories and poems. I don’t stick to any particular theme or genre but I do like to incorporate a little magic in most things. I used to post more random stuff but I’ve decided to narrow the focus of my blog just a smidge.

Do you write driven by inspiration or do you struggle to find things to say?
– Sometimes I am just inspired to write and other times I have to force myself to write. Sometimes I just feel like writing and have no idea what I am going to write about until I pick up the pen but the writing just flows out. Other times I have this really great idea of what to write about but when I start writing it just wont flow.

Which kinds of posts do you most like writing? Do other people like reading them?
– I like writing stories best and people seem to like them.

What wouldn’t you ever write about? Why?
– I wouldn’t ever write about something I found boring unless I had good reason too.

What’s your favourite post that you’ve written? (again, add a link if you like) What did you like about it? Did other people ‘get’ it?
– I think my favourite story I have posted so far is The Lovers it is a very short story. I liked the fact that it had more than one layer to it and I did this deliberatly which I don’t often think about. People still enjoyed it as a story but I know there is a metaphorical story hidden between the lines. I don’t know if anyone picked up that it was about consent. Maybe I should change the title but I didn’t want to make it obvious.

What’s your favourite post that someone else has written? What about it caught your attention?
– I have lots of favourites but here is one that I could find again. It is one of my favourite posts is Drop & Roll – Bend & Rub posted on life with luna cat which is a blog written mostly from the perspective of luna the cat. It is very entertaining to read.

Do you keep a blog because you want it to lead somewhere? Or do you just like writing?
– I keep a blog because I like writing and if it does lead somewhere that would be great and I kind of hope it might but mostly I keep it because I enjoy it.

What sort of blogs do you most like to read? Personal? Stories? Factual? Pictures?
– I like to read a variety but I especially like poetry, stories (any stories) and pictures always grab my eye.

What kind of posts put you off reading? Is there anything else about a blog that puts you off (eg fonts, popups)?
– I don’t like giffs or lots of movement of the page it makes my eyes hurt when I’m trying to read, especially if there is more than one.
– If the post doesn’t have a title I probably won’t click on it, just put ‘untitles’ it is easier to access.
– I struggle to read a post if the colour of text and the background colour are to similar for example both dark or both light, this is only okay if there isn’t much to read.
– A huge chunk of italics or swirly font can be off putting. Fancy fonts are great in small doses though.

When do you write and read blogs? From work? On the toilet? Inside a volcano?
– I usually read and write blog posts in bed. I used to do it in my free time at uni.



Hello fellow Blogsters,

Over the past year, I’ve rattled on quite enough about me, now I want to know about you. Sometimes blogging can feel like I’m throwing posts out to the world, with no real clue what I’m doing. It makes me wonder how other people go about blogging and what it means to them. It doesn’t matter if you are a regular reader or are just in the mood to chat, I want to know about YOU. Please answer in the comments below, or if you feel particularly inspired, you can write on your own blog and put a link in the comments.

Questions, questions, questions…

If you are a blogger, how would you describe what you write about? Are there specific themes you stick to or a style you use? (feel free to add a link)

Do you write driven by inspiration or do you struggle to…

The Hardest Game of ‘Would you Rather’ – Book Tag

I got the idea for this post off Lizzy here is her post and you should check out her blog here.

1) Would you  rather… Drop your favourite book into the toilet OR watch it fall into a wood chipper?

Toilet I suppose since it could survive. However it is unlikely because it is pretty small.

 2) Would you rather… read only 1 book a year but remember everything OR read 100 books a year but remember nothing?

Probably one although this is super tough. If I don’t remember anything there really isn’t much point.

3) Would you rather… Read only the first page of a book OR read only the last page of a book?

First pages are often the best.

4) Would you rather get locked in a library OR get locked in a bookstore?

The library because it is one of my favourite places to go.5) Would you rather… Drop your book in a lake OR accidentally set it on fire?

If I set it on fire I could put it out before any real damage was done.

6) Would you rather… Read a book with a cliffhanger ending OR read a book with a heartbreaking ending?

I hate both but a cliff hanger as long as there was another book to come.

 7) Would you rather… Have the book’s ending spoiled OR never know what happens

The books ending spoiled. I don’t like spoilers but I hate not knowing even more.

 8) Would you rather… read only one genre forever OR never repeat the same genre after reading it once?

The same genre otherwise I would run out of books very fast unless they came up with more genres.9) Would you rather… Read a book where the main character is killed off OR read a book where the love interest is killed off?

Kill off the love interest preferably but killing the main character could be interesting.

10) Would you rather… Read a book that’s missing the middle chapter OR read a book that’s missing the first and last chapters?

Middle but I hate reading incomplete books.

11) Would you rather… love a book everyone hates OR hate a book everyone loves

Love a book everyone hates. Less people will have read it so less people will spoil it for you.

12) Would you rather… loan a book to a friend who’s known to ruin books OR drop a book in a pit of snakes?

Drop it in a pit of snakes they are not guaranteed to destroy it.

13) Would you rather…. Be stuck on a deserted island without a book OR be stuck in a library full of books in a language you can’t read

Library I could always learn the language.

14) Would you rather… Bring only 1 book on a 12 hour flight OR bring an e-reader with only 10% left on a 4 hour flight?

One book. I could always start over if I finish it.

15) Would you rather… Find out your best friend hates your favourite book OR share a favourite book with your worst enemy?

Well my best friend doesn’t like my favourite book and that’s fine.

I tag anyone who feels like doing this tag. However don’t link back to me link back to the lovely lady who started it.
