The Sunshine Blogger Tag

I've been tagged!... again. So, I'd like to thank the lovely Micaiah over at Notebooks and Novels for tagging me for the Sunshine Blogger Tag. As you can see Has anyone else noticed that there have been a lot of tags going on this month? Like the week after Camp NaNo ended, it seemed like everyone did a tag... Anyway, on to the rules for this shindig.


 -Answer 11 questions from your nominee
-Tag 11 bloggers
 -Ask them 11 new questions 


1. What is your favorite type of post to write?

Oh my goodness, um, let's see. Although I have fun writing every post, I'd probably have to say that I like writing posts like my Trust and Don't Worry posts. I haven't written one this month, but I have a couple that will hopefully go up in June. If all goes as planned that is. :P

2. When did you start writing?

Oh, I was born with paper and pen in hand! I was ready to be published by the age of two. I'm sorry, what was that? You want the truth? I don't know if I should be impressed that you picked up on the fact that I was joking, or hurt that you think I would ever lie to you. Fine, I think I was something like 13 or 14 years old. Honestly, I don't really remember. If I'd known I would get asked this on a regular basis, I would've written it down!

3. What is one piece of advice you'd like to give to new bloggers?

Don't do it! Turn back while you still can! Just kidding. Stick with it! The beginning may be a little rough. It will probably take a little bit to find your blogging voice. Just be yourself and don't worry about how many followers other bloggers have (more than likely they've probably been blogging a lot longer than you). I mean, take Hitler and Jesus. Hitler had what, like thousands of followers? How many disciples did Jesus have?

4. Do you prefer Microsoft Word or Google Docs?

 Um, I kinda have to go with Google Docs, because, as far as I know, I've never used Microsoft Word. I want to try Microsoft Word though at some point, so I can better compare the two.

5. What member of the Fellowship of the Ring can you relate to the most?

Oh my word, this is a great question. And hard. I don't know, I can relate to all of them in some way or another. But I guess I'm more of a mix between Legolas and Gimli.

6. How are you pursuing your dreams right now?

Oh, wow, that's another really good question. Honestly? I don't really know. God has me where I am right now for a reason, and I'm trying to be content with that. Everything is going to happen in His timing. I'm actually planning on doing a post on this soon, so you can be on the lookout for that.
7. What is the hardest part of being a writer?

Well, let's think about this...
The struggle is real, guys!
But, in all honesty, it kinda depends. It mostly depends on what's going on (a.k.a. life) and what book I'm working on. There are a lot of things that come into play. Sometimes, things are just like "Well I was nice yesterday, so I'm gonna be evil today and make her second guess everything." Thanks, man! I owe you one.

8. What is your favorite hot drink?

 What if I told you guys that my favorite hot drink isn't actually coffee? What?! My whole life is a lie! Oh, calm down, I'm only kidding. Coffee is my favorite hot drink, I mean, look at the title of my blog... now the URL. Clearly, I like coffee. :P

9. How do you come up with your story ideas?

I don't. (Haven't I already answered this question before?) They just kinda hit me between the eyes like, "HEY! HERE'S SOME INSPIRATION!" Oh how kind of you.

10. Which do you prefer, ebooks or paperbacks?

 Paperbacks! :D I like ebooks too. There are benefits to ebooks, I mean, you don't have to hold them open and the lighting is always perfect. Have you tried holding open a paperback with one hand while holding a flashlight in the other? It's harder than it looks! Don't try this at home kids But, yes, I prefer paperbacks. There's just something about holding a book with actual pages. Not to mention, the pretty cover. :)

11. What is one book that has made you cry?

 Are we talking happy tears or sad tears? Well, I guess it doesn't really matter because I don't think a book has ever made me cry. Unless you include the Bible. I think the Bible has made me cry once or twice. I don't really remember because it was a long time ago. Other than that, a book has never made me cry. Bring tears to my eyes? Yes, but not what I consider crying.

      Thanks! I hope everyone likes it. :)

  2. Hehehe I love the "HOW DO I TITLE" on the hardest part of being a writer question XP There's a document somewhere in the depths of files on my laptop with that title. It's usually how I figure out something to work with XP And also WHAT IS A BEGINNING? WHAT IS END? HOW WORDS? WHAT ENGLISH? *tragic sigh* And YAY for blog updates! That's exciting :D

    1. Haha yeah, titling is HARD! Being a writer is definitely not easy. :P It is! I hope everyone likes the new look. :)

  3. What I fun post! I would have never guessed coffee was your favorite hot drink 0.0 I though you where more of a water kind of person teehehe
