Never Have I Ever

started a novel that I didn’t finish.

I seem to remember starting a couple of stories well before I began my glorious (just kidding) Civil War trilogy (that will never be published), but those stories never went more than a scene. And we’re just going to forget about them. Okay? 😀 But since I began writing seriously with that Civil War trilogy, I’ve finished all the ones I’ve started.

written a story completely by hand.

NO! That would be horrible! Talk about writers’ cramp!

changed tenses midway through a story.

Probably for a couple of verbs. Don’t go looking for them. 😀

not researched anything before starting a story.

Of course! Then again, I tend to research as I go along.

changed my protagonist’s name halfway through a draft.

Not the protagonist’s name … but I’ve changed the name of a major side character. Actually she had two names (long story) that I changed. 😀

written a story in a month or less.

First draft? Yes! But that was back when I wasn’t editing.

fallen asleep while writing.

Nope. I’m highly protective of my sleep.

corrected someone’s grammar IRL/online.

Yeah … It’s annoying, isn’t it? 😀

yelled in all caps at myself in the middle of my novel.

Not regularly 😀

used “I’m writing” as an excuse.

Guilty. Enough said 😀

killed a character that was based on someone I know in real life.

Beaten up, yes. Killed, no. But that is a good idea … Just kidding! Maybe …

used pop culture references in a story.

Probably not… I’m way behind the times 😀

written between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.

I can’t say for sure, but I know I’ve plotted well after one in the morning! The best plotting is done late at night (or early in the morning, if that’s how you like to think of it).

drank an entire pot of coffee while writing.

I actually hate coffee … No offense to all the coffee lovers out there 🙂

written down dreams to use in potential novels.

Once, I believe? I haven’t used it yet, and it’s probably best 😀

published an unedited story on the internet/blog/Wattpad.

I’ve put a few scenes on a Christian writing site’s critique forum, but they were edited 😀

procrastinated homework because I wanted to write.

I was pretty good about juggling writing and homework when I was in school, but I’m sure I procrastinated a time or two.

typed so long that my wrists hurt.

If my wrists hurt, it’s probably from wrist curls or other assorted arm wrestling exercises … not typing 😀 But this question is making my wrists hurt, so I’m moving on …

spilled a drink on my laptop while writing.

Nope. I don’t normally have a drink with me while I write. That kind of stuff stays in the kitchen where there aren’t any gadgets to damage…

forgotten to save my work/draft

Not that I can remember … I haven’t had any major computer problems related to writing. But now that I’ve said that, I’ll probably have one …

finished a novel.

I’ve finished nineteen and am working (sometimes) on the twentieth. Rough going there…

laughed like an evil villain while writing a scene.

I’m not vocal while writing… Unlike my sister 😀

cried while writing a scene.

Yep. Sometimes those salvation scenes get to me 🙂

created maps of my fictional worlds.

Yes … for my western novel, Strangers and Pilgrims. It was just for my personal reference so I wouldn’t scramble locations. Believe me, you don’t want to see it. 😀

researched something shady for a novel.

What author hasn’t?? 😀

And I’m Tagging…

  1. *reads the part about Kristina writing nineteen novels*

    *does a doubletake*

    Whoa, really??? I seriously admire that!!! I’ve only done four, though if we counted the three almost entirely different drafts of that one novel, then could I round this up to six??? 😂 But anyways, we actually have a lot of similar answers (like coffee is just bleck… sorry coffee lovers), so this was a really fun post to read!!!!!!

    1. Aw, thanks! I should’ve also included that at least 6 of my novels will never be published 😀

      I definitely think you could count the different drafts! Sometimes during the rewriting/editing process, the story turns into a whole other book!

      So glad you enjoyed the post!!
