Hello Blogging World!

Nice to meet you. How do you do?
Shhh, the truth is I've been secretly stalking you for the past, oh, couple months, but now I'm actually making my own blog. Isn't that exciting?
So who am I and why should you read this blog?
I'm a teenager who, in the midst of struggling through high school, is also a novelist. Not published yet, but a novelist who has finished four books and countless others WIP.

Now for an interview that I made up myself.

Q: Why did you decide to start writing?

A: I decided to start writing because I had stories to tell and I had to get them down. My first novel was written on scraps of paper during 6th grade. (I finished that novel, but I tend not to count it because it wasn't very good.) With the help of encouraging comments from my friends and teachers, I went on to finish my next novel two summers after. This one I count and I'm in the process of editing it.

Q: Ooh, editing! How's that going?

A: Next question.

Q: What are some of your favorite books? Are there any authors that have inspired you to write?

A: I've always loved reading. Always. But my passion for reading probably started when I read the Harry Potter Series. The Twilight series inspired me at a time, but I've gotten over that. And now my main inspiration is Suzanne Collins, author of the Hunger Games. I just love what she did with the series. I love how she balanced the romance and the action. I just love it.

Q: What genre are your novels?

A: That's a complicated question. They are all YA, but they range from Realistic Fiction to SciFi to Fantasy to Romance. It depends on the book.

Q: What blogs do you follow?

A: I think a better question would be what blogs don't I follow.

That's all for now, I guess! If you have any questions or comments please leave them in the comments section. Thanks!

  1. Welcome to the world of blogging! I am so impressed by all the novels you have written already. I got a late start with it and am always thrilled to see when someone begins young to follow their dream. Hope you keep at it!
