Just ONE?  Goodness, there are so many amazing blogs out there.  If I have to pick one, I would have to say A Writer's Faith.

Not yet, but I would love to find one soon.  :)

Probably action, if you can encompass science fiction and fantasy in with that.

I listen to music a lot.  It helps me focus.

Do you like math?
Definitely not.

What is your favourite thing to do outside?
Read a book.  :)

What is your dream house?
My dream house is Elrond's house in Rivendell.  *sigh* I can dream...

Who do you look up to most?
I look up to my mom the most.  She is such a great role model.  She is always telling my sister and I to trust God, even though we are going through a rough time.  And she trusts God herself.  Thanks, Mom.  :)

1. My Bible.
2. My iPad.  All my writing is on there.  I don't know what I would do without it.
3. The books that have been signed. 
5. My TARDIS.  No, seriously.  The 5th one is probably my blog.

Is there a question you really wish someone would ask you?
Yes.  :)  "Would you let us publish your book?"

What would you do if you had one month to live?
I would travel, demand authors send me the rest of the books in the series (even if they aren't finished), publish a book, and most importantly spend time with family and friends.

If you could live under water, would you?
Underwater is both cool and scary.  I'm not sure.

Light or dark blue?
Dark blue because it's more mysterious.

  1. I really enjoyed this. I probably didn't read any YA until I was at least 15. I think I had the impression it was for people older than that. Even now I only read books I specifically am looking for. I did read some Adult books earlier than that though.
    And I'm about the same with home-schooling and friends.
    Thanks for saying I'm awesome.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Anna. :) Thank you so much for tagging me! I guess I never really read YA before then was because I was comfortable with MG books.

  2. Thank you for doing it! Duuude, we are so similar! I like plan out meeting the actors who are going to play in my movies! :D Oh yeah, I finally lent out ATTD, but it took forever because I lent out the Blades of Acktar first! I play the psaltery, but I am hardly talented! I have like six real friends, maybe seven. I looove A Writers Faith. Action movies! Oh, and a critique partner is hard to find, but I was super lucky and found one just after NaNo, literally the first or second of December!

    1. :) Yes, planning out meeting "my" actors is a fun thing to do. I have yet to lend out my copy of ATTD. (I almost did the other day but my friend accidentally forgot it. LOL) Congrats on finding a critique partner! *applause* Maybe I too will find one soon.

    2. Honestly, I'm not sure how to look...

    3. One thing I would suggest is to find somebody you connect with during Camp NaNo, then afterwards, you guys can look at the two novels. I did and it really worked.

    4. Thank you for the tip, Rachael! :)

  3. This is a great idea! I might do it on my blog. ( :

  4. Homeschooling rocks!
    A Writer's Faith is one of my favorite blogs, too :).
    Your dream house is Elrond's in Rivendell? You, my friend, have the right priorities when it comes to houses :D.

    1. Elrond's house is the most beautiful house out of...everywhere. :) Maybe you can come and visit me when I move there. LOL

  5. Hey Alea! I'll this on my blog. The post comes out on the 29th if you want to check it out. :)


    1. Thank you for letting me know! I will have to check it out!

    2. Great! (sorry for the typos, lol) ;)
