“Never Have I Ever …” Tag

And today’s another tag day! Thank you to Grace @ Of Blades and Thorns for tagging me! 🙂

  • Link and thank the blogger who tagged you. Thank you again, Grace! 🙂
  • Include the graphic somewhere in the post (or make your own!)
  • Answer the questions truthfully and honestly.

Let’s get down to this, shall we? 🙂

Never Have I Ever…

…started a novel that I didn’t finish.

Hahaha. Is this a joke? ’Bout fifty times.

…written a story completely by hand.

Nope. Typing is the only way. I never would’ve written more than two lines if I had to write it all by hand.

…changed tenses midway through a story.

Probably … accidentally, though. Bad grammar alert. 🙂

…not researched anything before starting a story.

Probably, yes. And then I realized I really needed to research a lot.

…changed my protagonist’s name halfway through a draft.

Hmm … does it count if I changed it on the third draft?

…written a story in a month or less.

I think so? I used to write a lot. And quickly. And now I haven’t written anything on my new project for coming up on four months now. Ouch.

…fallen asleep while writing

Nope. I can’t do that. I try not to write past 11 PM, or else I can’t sleep. Too much plotting and writing in my head while I’m trying to fall asleep. 🙂

…corrected someone’s grammar IRL/online.

Yeah … my poor family.

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

Probably. I’ve recently been doing all caps at the tops of scenes I’m editing, and it’s not always yelling. Sometimes it’s just something like, “Bro, delete this scene. This is useless.” 🙂

…used “I’m writing” as an excuse.

I don’t know. Probably, but I don’t think I can remember an exact time I did.

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

I don’t think so. Most of my characters are weird amalgamations of people if they’re based on anyone, but I don’t think any of those people have ever died. And I don’t usually have the guts to kill main characters, anyway. My villains aren’t usually based on people in real life, either. 🙂

…used pop culture references in a story.

I don’t think so. Unless Irish love songs are pop culture references. 😊 Oh yeah, there was that one time I talked about country music and mentioned Johnny Cash and some other country singer. So yes!

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

I want to say no. Unless plotting counts. 😊

…drank an entire pot of coffee while writing.

Not a coffee drinker. If it has enough milk and honey in it, I can stand it, but I rarely drink the stuff. Now, tea? Or kombucha? Oh yeah, I can get onboard with that stuff. I enjoy having a few cups of tea in the afternoon when I’m writing. (Or supposed to be writing.)

…written down dreams to use in potential novels.

No. My dreams are so stupid, they should never be in a book. 🙂

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

No unedited stories are released to the world. That’s terrifying.

…procrastinated homework because I wanted to write.

Oh yeah. I try not to do this, but sometimes you just need to write instead of finish an assignment. Right? 😊

…typed so long that my wrists hurt.

Yep. Tendonitis and all of that fun stuff, but I think wrist curls and not playing the piano as much helps.

…spilled a drink on my laptop while writing.

No, but I do have my tea mentioned above near my laptop. That is scary.

…finished a novel.

Yes! Multiple, actually, though only one is edited enough to be seen by anyone other than my family members. 🙂

…laughed like an evil villain while writing a scene.

Probably. I’m quite infamous for talking to myself and cackling. My family has to put up with my insanity, which they do quite well.

…cried while writing a scene.

Mm … probably? Not outright crying. I definitely cried when I was writing the acknowledgements for Unknown, though that’s not really a scene.

…created maps of my fictional worlds.

I’m not even close to that cool. I should have, because there was that one time, long, long ago, when I had my characters in this setting: “50 miles east of Charleston, South Carolina.” And I promise they weren’t supposed to be in the middle of the Atlantic. 🙂

…researched something shady for a novel.

Hahahaha! All the time. And I always feel awful looking up how long a person could live with this type of injury, or how does one treat this type of injury? Or how do you poison someone without them knowing it? Or the research about torture … ugh. That’s the worst, man. Moral of the story: don’t plot yourself into a corner where you have to go through too gnarly of research.

Thanks again for the tag, Grace! 🙂

  1. You’re so welcome, Vanessa! Thanks so much for doing the tag! I loved reading your answers!!! And I guess we can be insane together, because I am ALWAYS talking to myself and cackling and…a number of other scary things. XD
