What (or who) inspires you and why?
As a reader and a writer, you might guess that I am inspired by stories! I love reading books (obviously!) and imagining stories of my own. I love that lightbulb moment when I think of a new story idea, or when I figure out a character’s backstory. I also love it when people reveal their life stories to me.
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
The people! I am so grateful to find a community where people share the same interests as I do, like reading, writing and blogging. The bookish community is so supportive and positive. I love that I’ve met new friends through blogging 🙂
If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be and why?
This is a tough question! Aside from waiting for my admission letter to Hogwarts, I’ve also dreamed about being a Pokemon Master:
If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with the time?
Write! It is my dream to be a full-time writer. I love the feeling of being immersed in my novel, and I find that this is so much easier when I have a stretch of vacation time when I think about nothing but writing every single day.
I would also love to spend more time on my other hobbies such as sewing. Oh, and more sleep would be nice 🙂
What is one piece of advice that you would give a new blogger?
When I was starting off as a blogger, I felt discouraged by my stats (or lack thereof.) My advice to new bloggers is to keep at it and try not to look at the numbers. Keep posting consistently, keep writing about what you love, blog-hop and join in on conversations, and have fun!
Optional: Freebie question – share something with us!
Remember the dress I made a while ago that I was supposed to write a post about but never got around to doing? Well, here it is!
This dress was a challenge for me in a few ways: I learned to sew sleeves that actually fit! I learned to install an invisible zipper (actually not as hard as it looks)! And I used iron-on interfacing for the first time! (+++ Sewing skills!) The fabric is a bit heavy for the summer, however I’ve been saving it for date nights and maybe professional events.
I nominate the following awesome people:
