Eleven Questions.

Firstly, I want to apologise if I'm not keeping up with follows and comments and everything, I know I need to go and explore a lot more blogs, but this last week or so has been crazy. So, I apologise, but thank you for all the comments and follows and everything.

Secondly, I have been tagged a couple of times in this eleven questions thing, so I'm going to answer those questions here...

First, from Alyssa:
Here are my 11 questions!!
1. What is your favorite holiday?
I love going to Fowey and I have been there so many times, it is such a magical place. Itching to go again...
2. Who is your idol?
Oooh. I have many really, both literary and musical, so I'm going to cheat and name a few - Daphne du Maurier, JK Rowling, all of Mcfly, Darren Criss, David Tennant.
3. If you could visit any place in the world where would you go?
I would love to go to Australia and America. But right now I really want to go back to Fowey and Cornwall!
4. What's your favorite genre?
I love YA. All kinds, but particularly contemporary and contemporary romance. But I also love fantasy and even sci fi stuff, and.... it's impossible to pick just one!
5. What or who has inspired your writing the most?
Both Daphne du Maurier and JK Rowling, and all those authors I read when I was a kid. Mcfly as well. And my Mum. She always told me to keep going.
More recently, all those wonderful YA authors out there who inspired me to properly write YA.
6. If you could choose any superpower what would you have?
I never know what my answer would be to these kinds of questions. I guess I'm about to find out... flying would be cool. Or being invisible.
7. If you had to be a villain, who would it be? Why?
I'm struggling right now to think of villains, apart from you-know-who, and I don't want to be him. Hmm.
8. What is your favorite animal?
9.What is your favorite food?
10.Who is your favorite author?
Daphne du Maurier and JK Rowling (I really need to get some new answers...) Neil Gaiman. Terry pratchett. Dodie Smith. And John Green and Stephanie Perkins.
11. What is your biggest fear?
flying. lifts. shipwrecks.

And second, from Sarah F:

1. What is your weapon of choice?
Hmm. Not a fan of weapons, but swords are cool.
2. What is the name of the first story that you wrote voluntarily?
I can't actually remember the first, but I remember one about cats. No idea what it was called.
3. What genre(s) do you write?
YA. contemporary romance. Although a bit of fantasy kind of stuff is coming into what I'm writing atm. Children's, fantasy.
4. Besides reading and writing what are at least two of your favorite pastimes?
cooking/baking, drinking tea, playing guitar (I'm not very good), swimming, tennis, people watching, drinking coffee, going to concerts
5. What is the coolest/strangest thing you've ever done?
I really can't think of anything right now... I'll think on it.
6. What is the best piece of writing advice you've heard?
It's hard to pick the best, but right now, as I'm writing this what comes to mind is 'write for yourself'.
7. What are your five most used websites?
twitter, facebook, hotmail, blogger, tumblr
8. What is your favorite book/author/movie?
It's impossible to pick one. But book I'll go for Harry Potter (cheating I know as its a series). Author, Daphne du Maurier. Film, Notting Hill.
9. If you could be invisible for one day, what would you do?
Find out what people get up to when I'm not around. Weird I know, but I'm nosy.
10. What are your hopes for your writing future?
I hope to continue writing and always love it, because it is something that I have to do. I hope that other people will be able to read what I write and will like it. I hope one day to be published.
11. Is there anything else we should know about you?
As may be evident from these answers, I can't make decisions. I become very obsessed with things. Mcfly, Daphne du Maurier, JK Rowling and Darren Criss are often answers to any questions. I have dreams and ambitions, like anyone else here right, and I'm determined to succeed, no matter what anyone says/has said to me. I want to prove everyone wrong. (although of course I do do this for myself, because I love it. And what else can I do?). AND I LOVE TEA. and radio 2.

And here are my questions,
1.When did you start writing?
2. Who are your literary heroes? (/favourite authors)
3. What is your favourite fictional character?
4. What genre(s) do you write?
5. What is your favourite book, tv show and film?
6. What is your favourite place you've visited in the world?
7. What is your favourite music?
8. Have you ever written fanfic?/Opinions on it?

p.s. I have no idea where that white box has come from. I hope I posted a link on everyone's page who I tagged, and I tried to make sure no one who had just done did it again! Apologies if I got it wrong though.
