NEVER HAVE I EVER . . .
. . . started a novel that I didn’t finish.
Umm . . . hasn’t everyone? I could fill a library with the number of books I’ve started and not finished.
. . . written a story completely by hand.
Actually, I have. Short stories. And half of a book.
(But we won’t talk about that one. *cough* Moving on.)
…changed tenses midway through a story.
In typos, probably, but not for a whole paragraph or anything like that. Though I have switched from third person to first and vice versa on multiple occasions. 🙄
…not researched anything before starting a story.
Research? What research? When do I ever do research? 😉 Seriously, I’m horrible at that. Don’t ever ask me to write a book about a crime mystery or a detective or anything like that.
…changed my protagonist’s name halfway through a draft.
NOOOOO!!!! ‘Tis the worst sort of crime! Once my characters have names, the names stay. Period.
…written a story in a month or less.
YES! For NaNoWriMo several years ago.
…fallen asleep while writing
…corrected someone’s grammar IRL/online?
Yes. Yes, I have.
…yelled in all caps at myself in the middle of my novel.
Um . . . no, I don’t think so. Maybe in my head, but not on paper.
…used “I’m writing” as an excuse.
😉 I mean, why not?
…killed a character that was based on someone I know in real life.
Ha ha! Wish I could plead guilty, but I’m innocent. *considers carefully* *considers some more*
…used pop culture references in a story.
Maybe . . . once? Not actually sure on this one. Mostly I write fantasy so . . . *shrugs*
…written between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.
Ah, the blissful morning hours when there is nothing to be done and it’s too dark to get up and the house is quiet and I can sit with my word processor and not even be disturbed by the dogs . . .
…drank an entire pot of coffee while writing.
Ha ha – no.
…written down dreams to use in potential novels.
Like, only last week? Doesn’t happen often – at. all. But once in a great while, it does. I keep waiting for one of those dreams to turn into a published novel.
…published an unedited story on the internet/blog/Wattpad.
Yes – at least, fairly unedited.
…procrastinated homework because I wanted to write.
…typed so long that my wrists hurt.
Um, not that I can remember?
…spilled a drink on my laptop while writing.
…forgotten to save my work/draft
All my stuff auto-saves, so also no.
…finished a novel.
Behold! Promised Land! (<Click da link.)
…laughed like an evil villain while writing a scene.
Ohhh . . . yessss . . .
…cried while writing a scene.
No. I don’t even cry while watching emotional movies. *shrugs*
…created maps of my fictional worlds.
Just did this for the first time with Fate of a Prince. Had to keep directions straight somehow.
…researched something shady for a novel.
Well, that’s a wrap! That was fun.
