I Should Have Done This In September

By: ✧♬TwinklingLights♬✧

PROMPT: Dust Jacket

Prompt 1

1. What is your favorite genre to write? 
    Honestly, I love romance and fantasy. I'm particularly partial to fairies, elves, and halflings. Oh, I also ADORE realistic fiction. Sci-Fi is fun to write but difficult, and historical fiction is really hard to write and just not fun for me.
2. What is your favorite genre to read? 
    Fantasy. Mythology. Anything having to do with mystical, magical creatures and worlds. Also-Rick Riordan. He's a genre in itself. Again, I also love realistic fiction; authors like Wendy Mass and Lisa Greenwald are pretty interesting to me.
3. What draws you to the WtW community? 
    I love how true everyone is on here. More importantly, I adore the connections people make with each other.
4. What do you find most challenging about writing?
    SENTENCE STRUCTURE. It's difficult to not be repetitive when it comes to building sentences in certain ways!
5. Most exhilarating?  
    I'd have to say finding new vocabulary words is such a blast. What's another word for hot? Sweltering. Another word for happy? Gleeful. One for great? Superlative. There are so many!
6. What is one goal that you have for yourself while here? 
    I want to inspire others and make sure my writing strikes a chord with at least one person.

Prompt 2
    My name is Alexandra. Generic, I know. I don't think I was named after anyone in particular. Everyone has always called me Alex because my mom wanted to name me that but my dad said it was too masculine. I know-hold on, one, two, three...-five people with the same nickname. Five. As for historical significance, ever heard of Alexander the Great?

  • People are like puzzle pieces: some people fit together, and some people just don't, and that's okay.

7. Three sources of comfort.

  • You never know when you might need an ocarina.
9. Three responsibilities you shoulder.

  • My musical skills
  • The fact that I'm not dead
11. Three qualities that make your life singular and/or unusual.
  • My parents are both doctors, which means I rode in a booster seat in the car until I was around 11 or 12.
  • I go to Catholic School (yeesh).
  • ummmmm nothing else really

Peer Review

There are so many lines that I resonate with, but the responsibility ones I really connected with.

I love your style, it's both normal and unique (which I don't really understand)
