Hands Stained with Ink Award
Awarded by Chris
If you could write one word, what would it be?
Keeneye (because I CAN)
Use one word to describe yourself.
Keeneye, wait that's cheating. Instead: Weird.
What is something random about you/your writing that you'd like to say right now?
I feel really accomplished and professional when my desk is covered in outlines, maps, character dissections, rough drafts, and the like. Why? I have no clue. :|
Think up an absurd title for a book:
The Not So Adventurous Adventures of a Boy (Teenager) Who Thought He Was a Girl and His Undersized Dragon Without Wings That Looked Like a Dog and Barked Like a Tree
One Morning at Night when the Blind Man Didn't See
What is the strangest sentence you can think of?
"As you know, Christopher, you are an orphan," he frowned and, because he was angry, shot his eyes into Christopher's. [Brownie points to label all the errors!]
What do you write?
Weird fantasy. Usually with an allegorical theme. I take metaphors and make them literal. So "Christian Fantasy". But in a lot of my newer ideas that I've got rolling, you might never know it was Christian.
If you had a weird disease and could only make one sound over and over, what would it be?
"I have a disease". Might help keep some stares away LOL
And now I tag...
You guys get the cool award up there, too. :)
Here's the rules:
1) Post about the award.
2) Award 3 other people
3) Answer the tag
Live in a Book Tag
I was tagged by Celebrilomiel, Squeaks, Pais Charos, Silver Angel, Madeline, and BleahBriann
I guess this was a popular one! lol
Rules: Name eight books you'd like to live in for a week, and then tag eight people.
In no specific order:
1. By Darkness Hid by Jill Williamson - It's a pretty cool world! Normal-ish. I'd cheat and be like....a noble bloodvoicer or something :) How cool would it be to be able to communicate with my mind?
2. Rise of the Dibor by Christopher Hopper - This world is beautiful I think. I'd either want to live before this huge war breaks out or be Luik. CH, can I be Luik? lol
3. The Bible by God - This isn't cheating is it? :) Through me back with Jesus. I wanna talk to him :-)
4. The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien - I'll hide in the shire thank you. Except I'd be a cool hobbit. Half Took half Baggins just to stir things up. Oh wait <_<
Jake awarded me:
Not sure what you were thinking there Jake :-) But I'll accept it nonetheless lol.
I get to list five random things:
This blog is not stylish :)
I woke up early today and am currently eating breakfast
In a few weeks, I will have 3 copies of the same book (Venom and Song)
America runs on Dunkin'
Most people would do anything for a Klondike Bar; I've never had one.
And now to award some peeps.
Daughter of the King
Brenna (two awards in one post? Niiiiice)
Jessica awarded/tagged me FIVE TIMES. So here we go:
Also awarded to me by Katherine Sophia
Thank you so much you two! This means a lot!
Thank you, Jessica! I'm hoping to take the "Aspiring" off there in a bit :)
I love this award. It's so different from the others I've seen. Thanks for giving it to me!
I have too many faithful commenters. If you comment on this post. Take the award :)
This one actually means the most to me. I'm glad that you find this blog inspiring. There's really not much more than I can ask for. Thank you so much!
Choose any amount of friends real or blog and say at least two things or more that you admire or like about them. Tag and make sure you link to them.
This, again, really meant a lot to me. Jessica said, "[Nathan Petrie] Is a teen author who's blog I always find fascinating. His posts are filled with passion for writing and God. He always has interesting and helpful insight into writing and characters. I found Nathan's blog late one night though Yodeling Dwarf's and was attracted by the name Whispered Roars."
Thank you so much Jessica!
Jacob Parker at Yodeling Dwarf: If you guys didn't know already, Jacob is the published author of what I'm expecting to be an amazing book Kestrel's Midnight Song. Jacob lives online almost as much as I do so when I need help with my writing BANG he's there. I think he worked just as much on TGT as I did :) Plus, he's just stinking hilarious.
Chris at My Ink Spot: WARNING: CHRISTIAN MILES IS THE CRAZIEST WRITER ALIVE. Seriously. Chris has got an awesome sense of humor. And at 16 (16 right? lol) he knows more about the craft of writing then most people will EVER know.
Brenna Dixon at The Road Less Traveled: Wow, I've awarded you a lot today haha. Brenna was one of my first readers. Met her on the DIOM forum but really didn't hit it off until after I left the forum. She bought my short stories book and mailed it to me to sign. That was pretty exciting :) And now she's just always filling me with encouragement. Thanks Brenna!
