WHAAAT? I've been tagged to do something?! I feel special!

Recently, I was called out by Holly from Inky Quill and Paper to do the one and only Writing Process Tag!!! She writes this really AWESOME AND AMAZING blog, so go check her out :)

I'm not much of a writer myself. I've never really written anything of too much importance. Meaning I've never written a book or article for personal purposes. I mean, of course, I was forced to write essays in school, buuuut, those were not great. I'll just give this a go though, so lets hop right in!

1) What are you currently working on?
As of right now, I'm mainly just writing bits and pieces on this blog (its my only blog). I basically keep this as sort of an online diary for my friends, family, and whoever might be interested in my life. My life recently has been a bit of a nightmare in terms of WAY TOO BUSY schedule. With camps and cleaning the house and moving, I barely have time to write stuff, which makes me kind of sad. I hope that someday when I DO have time, I can continue working on this story/manga that my friend and I used to work on back in 8th grade.

2) How does your work differ from others of its genre?
Um, well I'm not sure I have a genre. Like I said before this is mostly just kind of like a diary, so I guess it's a lifestyle/personal blog? I'm not sure if this can be counted as "different", but I feel like I put a lot less effort into my blog than other, more serious, bloggers. I write when I feel like it. Someday, when I have more time, I want to write more on my interests and hobbies, etc., but for right now, I'm just sticking with the "diary" theme.
Also, that book/manga my friend and I were working on, I'm gonna call it fantasy/fiction/dystopia.

3) Why do you write what you do?
I started a blog because Zoella had one, DIY and Beauty YouTubers had them, and most of all my Best Friend had one. I have a post on this (Inspiration), if you want to go read that. Anyway, I write when I'm feeling something deeply emotional or I'm just IN THE MOOD to write something. For me, writing is something that I do for myself. I'm not really big on grammar or proper writing form. That is something I reserve for language arts class! So all in all, my blog is really just a personal, online thing.

4) How does your writing process work?
Ohhhh myyy. I feel very unqualified to answer this question, because my writing has never been very good. Especially in language arts class. Most of my writing only ever deserved as high as a "B". I basically think of something in my head, then write until my fingers can't write anymore or until I run out of writing steam. If I haven't written in a long time then I might feel obligated to write something, and those are usually not my best posts. Also, I kind of just post whatever I write. Some people might write something, edit it, then edit some more, and post it a couple days later. I just write and click "publish". I don't even re read anything except for combing through for typos. . .

5) Tag three people to complete this post.

Well there you have it! My writing process! I hope you found this interesting or helpful or funny :)

*SCREEEEECH* That was me slamming the brakes because I was driving too fast. Happens a lot when I'm sleepy :P

Why 'Ello there! I know I've been gone for quite awhile. Mostly because I've been doing this musical camp at our local YMCA. Also because we are in the midst of moving-house-chaos. Aaaaanndddd. . .  I may have beeen just a smidge lazy. (pls don't judge!!)

Anywho, I felt that I had to make up for being "away" from my baby blog for so long. Therefore, I am sitting here updating you on whats up! Like I said before, I've been doing this camp at the Y. It ended this Sunday and I'm gonna be sad to go. (Sunday?? you may be thinking, well technically camp ends on Friday, but we had performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.) I'm gonna really miss the fun, the improv scenes (except I'm awful at them), and mostly the people. I've met some incredible people doing this camp, and its kind of sad to think that I may not ever be able to see them again. I'm a CIT (Counselor in Training), and there'a another one named Andrew. He's cool, and just naturally funny. I don't get how it works. Then there are three actual Counselors called Matthew, Kate, and Morgan.
It's so hard to explain in a blogpost just how fun it was to be in this show. I was a replacement for one of the girls and... lets just say I make an awkward guard!

There are ups and downs to my life, and camp was an up. The downs was that I went to bed every night kind of sad and depressed. During the day, it's easy to forget about the sad stuff that's going on, but at night its really quiet in my room and it gives me too much time to think about moving. I still don't think it's completely sunk in yet that I'm leaving St. Louis.

Also, I've had sooo much stuff going on, I haven't been able to film the routine for my guard try out, so Imma have to do that soooon.

Well that's pretty much it for now. I'll write more when I'm feeling inspired or something.

c yaaaaa
