The Writers Not Writing Tag!

Hey guys! While scrolling through Twitter, I saw a post from Hallie Jenkins called the Writers Not Writing tag. It looked really fun, so I thought I would do it today! You can check out Hallie's post here.

Do you have a day job?

Yep! I get to snuggle/play with a baby all day and write when he naps.

Are you a reader?

Siiiiiigggghhh. I try to be, but lately reading has been incredibly difficult for me. Where I used to be able to sit for hours and read a book in one sitting, I now struggle to get my brain to focus. I get caught up by the page count and how much I have left to read. I want to know everything about the story and finish it in ten minutes, and that's just not possible. So it's a struggle!

What are your other hobbies?

I dabble a little in painting and photography, and I'm also super into makeup.

Tea or coffee?


Do you have any pets?

At the moment, no. My betta fish of a year and half went to fish heaven a few weeks ago. I have no idea what was wrong with him, but he randomly just stopped... doing things. I thought he had a fungal infection, and then I thought swim bladder disease--but nothing I bought helped. He would hardly eat and would only swim at random times to desperately get to the surface for some air. I thought maybe turning off the filter would be better (or that perhaps the filter was the issue because it was getting old and probably needed to be replaced) and less than twelve hours after I unplugged it, he was dead! RIP Gerald. But here are some lovely pictures from when he was alive and well!

What was your dream job as a child/when you were younger?

Author! Every year of school they would ask us what we wanted to be, and from the very beginning my answer was an author.

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?

Probably further up north or closer to Lake Michigan. I love Michigan more than any place I've been, so I'd never want to leave this state.

Do you speak foreign languages?

Technically no, but I do know a few words in Chinese and Portuguese thanks to my job 😂 They are very random words (shark, water, sun, cat, Mom, Dad, etc) but I can sing "Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes" totally in Portuguese since we listened to it so many times.
But overall, no. I am unfortunately not fluent in any language but English.

What music would we find in your collection?
A little bit of everything, really. Though I tend to stick to bands like Mayday Parade, Go Radio, and All Time Low.

And that's it for the Writers Not Writing Tag! these questions were super fun and different, so feel free to answer them if you want. I hope you all have a lovely rest of your week and get all of your writing goals accomplished!
