Sharing circle!

So this whole blogging thing ensures that I'll spend a certain amount of time writing about myself. If you've been reading, you know a fair amount about me (writing, dancing, blah, blah, blah). I'd like to switch things up and find out something about you - my followers. I really appreciate your followship and would love to know more about you.

What are you working on right now? Is it exciting you or driving you crazy? Which genres are your favorite to write in and which are your favorite to read? What's the best thing you've read lately? Where would you like most to live and what's your favorite vegetable? Anything exciting going on in your life? Tell me!


  1. Hi! This is such a great idea...I might steal it sometime ;)

    I really like you're blog, and although I don't always comment, I usually check out your posts! Well, my name is KT and I'm working on a dystopian WiP that's driving me nuts. I can't get myself to sit down and write. Dystopian is my favorite to read, and I've been getting into contemporary--I'd love to try and write that.

    I'm currently reading Maggie Stiefvater's Forever (I should have finished it a month ago, but school is kicking my butt). Um, what else... I like sweet potatoes! Hahah This was fun!

  2. Hi KT! Yay, I'm so glad you enjoy the blog. My current project is also a dystopian (I know! We're so trendy.;)) I've always loved dystopian lit as well. Got a chance to take a class on it back in college, which was pretty cool. How long have you been working on your novel?

    I quite enjoyed Shiver, but haven't read any further in the series. Do you recommend continuing? Yay sweet potatoes!

  3. One thing about me that you might already know...I like to use exclamation points! See! OMG there I go again! LOL Okay, so I try not to overuse them in blog posts, but they creep in a lot on Twitter and commenting on blogs.

    Awesome dystopian YA book I finished this week is Enclave by Ann Aguirre. Not sure if you've read it yet :)

  4. I totally do the same thing! What is it about blogging and tweeting that makes us so enthusiastic? I haven't read Enclave, but I've been wondering about it. The premise sounds pretty intense (which I like).

  5. Wow. Lots of questions! :) I love answering things:

    Currently working on the first draft of a YA SF/Dystopian novel, which I hope to finish by November. It's half-exciting me, half-driving me nuts. Favorite genre is Science Fiction, and it's the same for reading. The best thing I've read lately is Nightfall and Other Stories by Isaac Asimov. I'd love to live in my own story world . . . but on Earth, maybe Tokyo. Or possibly British Columbia. Favorite vegetable is Brussel sprouts, at the moment. :P

  6. Wow, I didn't realize so many of us were working on dystopians. I've only read short stories by Isaac Asimov, but enjoyed those. Have you gotten into the Foundation stories? Do you tend to prefer hard sci-fi to soft? I'd love to visit Japan; I've never been. BC is pretty awesome, though.

    Oh and brussel sprouts? Seriously? I didn't know anyone liked those. :p

  7. I'll break the dystopian mold and mention my WIP, Crow's Rest, which is contemporary fantasy. Not quite urban fantasy since it takes place in a small town in California. Oh, a small town with a castle. Yes, really.

  8. I'm working on the same contemporary YA I've been working on forever, and I am SO ready to be finished with it!

    Happy Friday!

  9. I'm working on a YA futuristic action/adventure thing. I don't know what the genre is anymore... It's exciting, but the fact that I'm not done already drives me crazy. The best thing I've read lately is the LEVIATHAN series by Scott Westerfeld. Steampunk is so amazing.

  10. Angelica - I love your title! I have such a difficult time coming up with titles. Jealous!

    Jessica - I hear you! My first novel took about two years to finish and I'm still not convinced it's done. (But you gotta move on sometime, right?)

    Jessica - Yay action adventure! When did you start writing it? Scott Westerfeld's Uglies books were some of the first that really got me excited about YA.
