*find this tag question post*
I know, i wrote Journaling Categories just yesterday but i couldn’t resist this one. I found this questions on Alien at Sea and Me and Ink blogs. This’s called ‘The Writer’s Tag: 20 questions‘. So, i’ll answer it because, why not? Lol.
What type of writing do you do?
Poetry and stories I also love to research, but i’m really terrible at making Journal. But yes.. Stories and poetry.
What genres and/or topics do you write about?
I attracted to spiritual/metaphore poetry, also love and life poetry. So, i tried to write those topics/genres.
I wrote fiction and adventure stories too. I made family-based story often.
How long have you been writing?
I don’t know. I tried to write since… I watched Harry Potter, i guess?
Are you published?
No, they rejected my story a lot Lol. But i don’t care.
What was the first story you ever wrote?
Oh.. i remember this! Triplets separated because of their died parent. They found each other on one big audition for film-school, randomly. They interacted and found out eventually they have same necklaces with their name initial with similar symbol, which lead to one question, “why now? And what’s that even mean?”
Never finished. But i wrote other stories based on it.
Why do you write?
I just need to shut my brain down. Lol.
How do you find time to write?
I can write whenever i feel i want to.
When and where are the best times to write?
Whenever i feel i want . I can’t write with people or even just a person around/besides me. Except, they had distance and it was an open space room.
Favorite food/drinks while writing?
Iced coffee with milk or Iced tea with milk. I’d never write while eat. I prefer to watch videos while eat.
Your writing playlist?
Everything i feel i want to listen.
What do family/friends/loved ones think of you writing?
My family actually don’t know i write. I have only 5 people who know i write. I’ve never know what they think about it. Eventually i opened myself to public, promote it from instagram-story and twitter. I feel proud for myself. Lol.
Parts of writing you enjoy the most?
First time reading the finished story/poetry/journal.
Parts of writing you find challenging?
Editing chapter on stories or rhyming words on poetry. Writing simple clear interesting sentences for researched-journal was also challenging.
What do you write with and on?
Laptop and mobile phones (on notes). Scrabbling idea on books.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
Stop writing until i feel i want to start again. Lol. But, sometimes i just think the better writing/story-line option to finish it. Perhaps, i will change it later, but i finish it first anyway.
How do you motivate yourself to write?
No idea. I’m just strolling around on random articles, news, blogs, stories, videos, and everything. Well, i don’t feel motivated anyway, but i feel full and happy (sometimes mad if i found some bad articles).
Authors who inspire you as a writer?
JK Rowling, Enid Blyton, Anthony de Mello, Mitch Albom, Paulo Coelho, Jalaluddin Rumi, Sapardi Djoko D, Kahlil Gibran, Dan Brown, C.S Lewis, Agatha Christie, Conan Doyle, Austin Kleon, Tolkien, Stefan Wolf (Rolf Kalmuczak).
Books that inspire you as a writer?
Famous Five series, Harry Potter series, TKKG (or STOP) series, Mitch Albom’s books, Song of the bird by Anthony de Mello, Austin Kleon’s books.
Best advice you’ve gotten as a writer?
No one gave me advices, because i’d never called a writer. But my close friends always support me anyway. So, their supports are my bigest advice meaning “don’t quit, just do what you like anyway.” Lol.
Oh, i have one! The best advice a publisher told me, my story was good but i need to make it complex and direct to the problem. They told me to read Sidney Sheldon’s. I read it anyway. Lol. That’s the best advice i’d ever get.
Writing goals this year?
No writing goals. I’m too lazy to make one. But, last year’s goal was to writing more. So here i am.
Yay! How about you? Do you love to answer those question too?
I really want resilientdream to answer this also.. She’s a great writer anywayy… She was really brave (to write and do what she believe) i remembered and she IS still. So i hope she always will.
See you on next Journaling Category!
