It has been a while since I wrote a legitimate piece. Maybe I should be doing that instead of procrastinating by writing random stuff?

50+ followers? You know what that means. Question time that no one asked for! #askthewriter

May 27, 2020


Ladies, gentlemen, and gentlefriends (or gentlepeople, but I just liked the rhyme), the time has come. It has finally arrived, the moment only I have been waiting for....

I reached 50 followers.

And yeah, I know. Many people are reaching 100, 200, 73 million followers (not sorry for that hyperbole), and also SO many people are doing 50 follower Q&A’s, but I really wanted to celebrate and acknowledge this milestone and also all of my amazing followers that are constantly so encouraging of me and my writing. When I came on here, I thought that no one would follow me, and now here we are! Every time someone likes, comments, or follows me/one of my pieces, my heart grows a little, so sincerely, thank you so much.

So... if you have any questions for me, ask me in the comments below! It can be anything from something specific about a piece I’ve written or my favorite food. If I deem it too personal, I just won’t answer it, but don’t be afraid to ask!

Again, thank y’all so much for everything.
~ Cressida (feels so weird to write that as if that’s my name)
P.S. Have a feeling that no one is going to ask questions so if no one does.... that’ll be awkward
P.P.S. I’ll be reposting this a bit so people can see it. Don’t know how long it’ll be open for- maybe until I get enough questions?

    So I am approximately halfway through my Cedric + Hermione series. I am so happy that so many people have enjoyed this series. Thank you so much! Also, I have two new series that I have recently started writing. “Eight People To Go” and “The Academy of Minds.” Be sure to check them out! Thank you for being such a wonderful follower! ;)

    About my userfiction: Apparently userfiction pieces are getting taken down "to protect people's privacy" so I'm afraid I no longer can host. My original piece has been taken down, so I have to discontinue. I'm very sorry :(

    i'm honestly blown away by how quickly the newer generation gains a following - colour me bloody impressed because your talent and way with words means you deserve every single one.

    some questions (no pressure to answer them all, this is all good fun anyway):
    what do you want people to say about you most?
    there is a holy sword hanging on your wall that you found on the street last week. describe it.
    there is something following you on your way home from the bus stop. five steps from your front door, you turn around and face it. what does it look like?
    you are dreaming and there is a door in front of you. what do you want to find behind it? what do you expect to find? what do you fear is behind it?
    you are a world-renowned author. what is your pseudonym?
    what does your dream home look like? (e.g. location, interior, who you are living with, etc.)
    if one of your stories were to become a screenplay, which would you choose? who would you have direct your film?
    every so often, you hear whispers only you can hear. do you listen to them? what do they say? would you be surprised if you found someone else who could hear the whispers and discovered where they came from?
    a quote is attributed to you for the ages. what is it?
    every month, you go to the market and buy a witch's wares. what do you buy, and how much do they cost? why are you buying them, and does your family approve?
    what character trope do you think you embody?
    you are descended from a god. how does your lineage present itself?
    there is a rapping at the door, but when you look through the window, no one is there. do you open the door?
    and finally: how are you?

    Congrats on the followers, I think I might've been the 50th? Even though I haven't been a follower very long, I'm still looking forward to reading more of your future pieces! :)
    A question hmm let me think...
    What kind of bread would you be? (pita, baguette, muffin, wait is a muffin bread? no i mean the kind of muffin you can slice in half, not the cupcake kind of muffin. yes, that's it. Sliced, a bread roll, tiger bread, umm okay there's probably more kinds of bread out there, but that's all I can think of and now I'm hungry ha)
    Wow sorry for the bread spiel lol!
