So to celebrate 50 followers I asked you guys to ask me questions about anything. I only got three questions so I’ll answer those questions here and if you guys have any else, just leave them in the comments and I’ll just reply with an answer.
Now let’s get going!

Where is your dream place to write in? (ex: coffee shop, on a mountain, in bed, another country, etc….)?
My dream place to write… well that would probably be Middle Earth. But that would be my literal dream place to write so it’s not really possible. Well I would love to own a bookstore some day and I’d spend my days writing in there and for breaks maybe walk to the coffee shop on the corner (yes, that’s a requirement). I’m not sure where exactly in the world I would want this to be located, but some place that I enjoy. I haven’t been anywhere in my life really so I won’t be able to answer that question at this moment for I can only figure out if I like a place enough to live there after visiting.
If you wrote a book, what do you think it would be about?
Well I’m currently in the middle of 3-5 writing projects at the moment. And by ‘in the middle’ I mean ‘I’ve started writing the idea down and I’ve got about 1-2 pages done’. But there is 1 or 2 books that I’m about 70 pages in (100 and something if split like actual book pages and not just a word document). I find fantasy extremely fun to write because your imagination is literally the limit. The problem with that, though, is making the world realistic enough where the readers will believe that the characters you’ve created live there. I find this to be the hardest part of writing fantasy, the world building. It’s a very hard thing to do and it leaves me stressed out just thinking about. But I’ve tried contemporary and I find it too boring and mundane for my taste. I’ve also tried modern-fantasy, like The Mortal Instruments or Harry Potter as examples. I find that slightly easier because I can use elements from the real world and combine that with the fantasy elements that are important to the story and keeps everything exciting.
What was the first book/ series that got you really into reading?
Er… my first instinct is to go with Harry Potter, but that wasn’t the first book or series that got me into reading. They did play a large part in it, but there were books that I’ve read before then. I can’t remember loads of the books I read before, but I can remember some and those include the first three books in the Series of Unfortunate Events series. I remember vaguely reading them in school and loving them but then I think I moved schools or something and never looked for the rest of the books again… until now where I’m on the sixth book! I also read a lot of Judy Moody and before that, I read every Junie B. Jones book I could get my hands on. I guess those are the books that sparked my love for reading.
Okay so those were all of the questions I was asked. If you have any more questions you’d like to ask me, feel free to do so in the comments and I’ll reply to them with my answers.
