I'll do the last few...
 
(For peoplo who write)
 
1. Skipping about them, they (more than one) are sci-fi, realistic and historical fiction
2. So far? Two chapters I'm positvie about. Maybe two years until the final draft of the first one is ready.
3. Main characters are classified.
4. Mostly times are undefined- at a time that never existed or modern-day.
5. Many different locations are also classified.
 
I am inspired by music, I do not read- I write and when I read I read what is good no matter what genre, I do not have a favorite writting genre.
 
I like being human, I have all the power I need, I don't need to visit anywhere, I do not know for sure which creatures are mythological or not. Dragons are real- in the sense that they Will exist. Sea monsters are/were real, and the  most gruesome monster- humans- already exists. So there's really not much to choose from.

  5. What is your favorite genre to write? see above answer *points to #4*


  1. What is it about and what genre is it? It's about this teenage secret agent who is sent to find a terrorist hiding out in a small town. The catch is the terrorist is also a teenager, and is attending the high school. While there, he meets a lot of people, many of whom he believes are the terrorist... especially this one girl, who... well, you'd have to read it to find out the rest! ;)

          I'm not sure what genre it would be, right now... I guess realistic fiction mixed with scifi???


  1. How long is it so far? How long will it be when it's finished? It's about 61,000 words long right now, and I'm not sure how long it'll be when it's finished. I still have a lot to write!

  2. If you could have one power/abiliy, what would it be? either to be invisible, walk through things, or read minds...

  3. What is the one place in the world you would love to visit? Sweden!

  4. How old are you? 14

  5. If you could make up your own mythological creature...what would it be? Describe it! Hmmm... I think I'd actually rather not... I like the creatures we have right now! :p

          Oh! But when I was younger, I wanted to create a combination of a guinea pig and a gerbil! (Lol)

  1. What's your first name? Karrissa (But I prefer Brooke)

  2. What state do you live in? AZ

  3. What things inspire you most? Well my inspiration comes from the people who read my posts and encourage me to write more.

  4. What is your favorite genre to read? I love to read mostly fiction novels along with fantasy, romance, and adventure novels.

  5. What is your favorite genre to write? Most people would expect me to say Romance but that comes second after Fantasy.

Here are some questions for people who are writing books:



  1. What is it about and what genre is it? Er...well I'm writing two things at the moment, a script/show (Scoring More Than Baskets) and To Kiss A Legend, which is Fantasy/Romance/Adventure.

  2. How long is it so far? How long will it be when it's finished? Well the script is about seven pages haha -- I just started yesterday. And To Kiss A Legend is like 50-100 pages and most of it bits and pieces...I'm at chapter 5 technically speaking...

  3. What is your main character's name? Script: Chaz: A quiet young man who moves to a new town, not expecting to make any friends. His basketball skills exceed him and he is commonly overlooked but speaks his mind through his anonymous blogs. Though strong at heart he tends to be quick to criticize himself. Trav: A natural athlete and the star of the high school basketball team. His popularity is a burden in his eyes and in truth is a little withdrawn and fails to accept his troubled past. He doesn't say much, but metaphorically speaking he has a loud voice when he allows others to hear it and is quick to get his point across.  Novel: Neala and Clematis :smileyvery-happy:

  1. What is the time setting? Both: Present time

  2. What is the location? Kingman, Arizona

Here are some other random questions:



  1. If you could choose to be one animal, what would it be?  I would have to choose between three...wolf, horse, or owl.

  2. If you could have one power/abiliy, what would it be? Oooh tough one...either flying or invisibility. Or maybe the power to morph so that I could turn myself into an owl and fly and turn into something small so I could be "invisible". :smileyhappy:

  3. What is the one place in the world you would love to visit?  Well, Scotland is the setting of To Kiss A Legend in some of the first book and all of the second...so Europe.

  4. How old are you? I am sixteen years old :smileyvery-happy:

  5. If you could make up your own mythological creature...what would it be? Describe it! My mythological creature would be a beautiful creature...a creature with a wolf face and the body of a white tiger with wings of an eagle and paws in the back and talons in the front. It would lure in prey by howling/singing a tune, after which it would take the prey up in its talons and give the prey the opportunity to soak up the world before biting its throat and killing it instantly as a sign of respect.


I thought it was a little wierd that I posted this, but didn't answer the questions for myself, so I decided to participate :smileyvery-happy:

Holy Jegus, I was waaaaay too excitable 4 years ago-- 4 years!! (I was peachiepeach. And theres probably a peachiekeen around here that was also me. I will say it again: Holy. Jegus. Id like to try this again... Name: you can call me Momo. State: Ill tell you a general direction: the North East US. Inspiration: being bored, yes, but other than that... my muse simply has to hit me. (No, really: my muse is like a weeping angel- blink, and youre dead.) Genre to read: Historical, Scientific (I reccomend David Eagleman; he explains the subconscious in SUCH a cool way), Mystery, and yes, Fantasy and Sci-Fi. Genre to write: I dont think I can write anything but fantasy or sci-fi. It helps fuel my imagination and gives me intersting concepts for inventions. (I want to be an engineer. 12 year old me would never approve.) A book in the works?: Its a bit presumptuious to call it that, but yes, I have a few ideas floating around here. I haven't completely scrapped Wings, but the general idea is definately dead. For now. Neer know how Im going to feel about it tomorrow. Whats it about?: We're stil jumping the gun here, but I, at the very least, saw it as a nuclear fallout meets genetic deformaties meets an oppressive governmemt. Its pretty much if the Cold War actually happened had a baby with Old Religious Beliefs which recently divorced its wife Science (who are on pretty friemdly grounds, considering their recently divorced) and that baby had married Science's estranged brother, Corrupted Government and had two kids, Racism and Rebellion. Basically one huge incestious-sounding relationship of all bad things to make one story. But surprisingly not related at all, once you work out the syntax and familial lines. (Yes. Yes I did check. AND I AM 100% RIGHT.) How long so far?: Google Docs doesn't tell me these sorts of things. I honestly have no idea. I also don't particularly want to know. It'll be done when its done. Main Character?: Her name is Chrys. So far, all I know (which is still more than you know) is that she's a poor, cynical young woman who takes care of unwanted children (I will hopefully get around to explaining why in a canonical manner) She's a mechanic, making enough to pay for necessities but still must ignore the strict laws in order to feed herself amd the growing number of orphans in her care. She doesn't raise a fuss simply because that doesn't pay and becuase it draws attention. Setting?: Dunno. You tell me. Be the animal: Bequerel. Good dog. Best friend! :D Have a power: Dunno. Maybe... I'd fly? Or teleport. Both are rather practical. Age: 16. Give or take. Mythological creature: I had a lot of made up animals in my story. Does that count? Nuts, never mind. I'll simply make it count. Hmm, how does one simply describe Grin? Well, for one, he's a sabre bear. Theyre about the size of, if not bigger than, a grown man. They have snow white fur, and are completely blind- but their brains and other senses compensate for the lack of sight. Flexible yet sturdy blue carapieces cover and protect their knees, shoulderblades, and elbows. ...Wait. That reminds me of Monsuno. Why did I not see that connection before? I feel so dumb now. Ugh. ...I still like Grin though.
