Well here it goes!
1. Pencil or computer for me! If I am having a hard time typing out the story I'll switch to a pencil. There is something about having a pencil in your hand while you are writing! I have a much better connection with the story when I use a pencil!
2. Tough question! I would probably say:
The School Story by Andrew Clements
From the Dark to the Dawn by Alicia Willis
The Boy Colonel by John. J. Horn
The Baker Family Adventures by C.R. Hedgecock
Little Women by Lousia May Alcott
and probably a dozen others!!!
3. Time period? Not really sure! I guess whatever book I last read that interested me the most! Not sure about settings either.
4. Oh dear! This could get long! Goodness! That's a tough question!
Philip from The Dark to the Dawn because of his character and strong faith in God.
I have a few favorite female characters. But I would say I have always loved Jo from Little Women. Why? She longs for adventure and purpose in life, writes, and the changes she goes through in the book that mold her into a wonderful woman.
There you have it! :) Thanks for the fun questions Anna!
1) I totally agree! I find it much easier to find time to write when using a pencil, but I do enjoy typing it on the computer so that I don't have to type in my long story afterword.
2) Nice! Do you suggest a certain age? I am trying to find some books to read. : )
3) Ha,ha! I can SO relate to that!!!
4) I haven't heard of that character...what is he like?
Ha,ha! I knew it! Besides her being a little too feminist (in my opinion) I think I would like Jo too! I like Rebekah from Rebekah of Sunnybrook Farm.
In answer to your question in #2 I would say you could probably read them all. However, The Boy Colonel and From the Dark to the Dawn both have things that could be questionable to reading standards. I do know that many boys and girls younger than you have read The Boy Colonel and the parents were fine with it. It would have to be up to you and your parents. But all the rest are great books! :)
In answer to question in #4 it would be hard to explain him if you haven't read the book. Let me say that he is kinda of like Peter in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Just lest heroic and a lot more humble and godly. :)
1. Pencil or computer. Pens are just too messy for my liking. : )
2. Wow, a lot of them... (I wouldn't necessarily suggest these all for reading)
The Shield Ring by Rosemary Sutcliff
The Viking Quest Series by Lois Walfrid Johnson
Evangelists in Chains by Elizabeth Wagler
Most everything by Elizabeth Prentiss, Elizabeth Enright, or Rebekah A. Morris
And of course, Structuring Your Novel by K.M. Weiland!!!
3. Medieval in the forest : )
4. Archie from Rose in Bloom or Devin from The Invisible Friend. They are just so nice, godly, and good, quiet leaders. For girls... maybe Katherine from Stepping Heavenward? : ) Probably because I can relate to her struggles. : )
1) ; D
2) I love Evangelists In Chains!!! I still need to finish reading Structuring Your Novel.
I must confess I am crazy about Elizabeth Enright. I especially enjoy how simple and relatable her description is! And her characters! *Gasp*
...Okay, I might be a little crazy about her "Melendy" books.
3) Yup, I can tell from practically ALL your stories. Lol! Hey, I am enjoying your new one, "Legend", by the way.
4) Archie is AWESOME!
Can't wait to read Stepping Heavenward!
1)Pen or Computer. I've never really written anything very serious before though....so maybe that will change. ?
2)I don't really know. Any book I read I pull ideas from, (maybe someday I'll come up with my own ideas.) but they don't make me want to write.
3) I prefer no time setting. Then I am free to make my own story, I don't have to match any history or anything. I like mysterious, almost scary settings, that keep you on the edge of your seat.
4) Katy from Stepping Heavenward, and people from the many biographies I've read.
Hey Paisley, you liked Katy too! : ) What do you think of that book?
Yay! Faith is on here at the same time too! This is so fun; I can't believe that four of us are on here right now! Totally neat-o!
1) I am afraid my handwriting is too messy for writing with pens. : [
2) Ya, I am afraid I copy ideas from the books I've read recently a little too often. : P Actually right now I am rewriting a book called "The Scarlet Stockings Spy" that I checked out from the library. Don't worry, I am changing the story a whole ton so it won't end up violating copyrights anyway! : D
3) : D Like!
4) Wonderful! Biographies are great!
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to answer my questions! Paisley, Bethany, Jazzy, Lily, Owen, Liberty, Mikal, and Pearl, what about y'all?
Ha, ha, brain cramp! I only read the 'a' and 'i' in your name Faith and thought you were Paisley! Sorry about that. : ) What did you think of "Stepping Heavenward", Faith? : )
I really,really, really like Stepping Heavenward! :) I've read it more than once, and it's so encouraging, uplifting, and convicting! What about you?
I love that book! The story of her life is really amazing, and the struggles she goes through are similar to ones I've had. : )
Hee, hee! Too funny!
1. Pen or computer!
2. I really enjoyed reading "The Chronicles of Narnia" (C.S. Lewis, I like "The Last Battle" the best!) , "Little Pilgrim's Progress" (Helen L. Taylor), "Spider Web for Two, a Melendy Maze" (Elizabeth Enright), "The Pushcart War" (Jean Merrill), and a few others!
3. I like the vintage time period, and probably medieval.
4. I'm not quite sure who my favorite characters are. For boys probably Rush from the Melendy books by Elizabeth Enright, and Tirian from the "The Last Battle" by C. S. Lewis.
For girls I like Phoebe from "Eight Cousins" by Louisa May Alcott, and Lucy from "The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis. I like other characters too. :)
A special place for everyone to join in on the authors conversation!
