My pic from my early Instagram days – le sigh…
I think Clarissa and I will slowly become besties and we will rule the world together!
I need to find some cool gifs for my posts. I used to make those actually. What? You didn’t know I made graphics? What?! Yes, this is a writer’s edition, but you’ll have to read my answers to get to know me and why this works for me 🙂
I stole this from Clarissa Reads it All and nobody tagged me so ha! If you read it, like the last post, consider yourself tagged! It’s fun! Go for it!
**I stole Clarissa’s dividers. Sorry!
Vital Stats and Appearance.
Name: Amanda Kay. Kay is my middle name – no I’m not giving a last name.
Nickname: Don’t really have one – I’ve been called Manda a few times because when I was growing up, every other girl was named Amanda.
Birthday: September 28.
Hair color/Length: Dark Brown with silvery strands. Yes, they are silver, not gray.
Piercings/Tattoos: I have three holes in both ears. I love earrings!
Ethnicity: Pasty and pale. Nothing special.
First Novel Written: I’ve written two stories actually. One was taking a comedic twist on divorce (because I went through a divorce at the time) and the other was a retelling of Sleeping Beauty.
First Novel Completed: Yeah, neither one are finished.
Award for Writing: I did win an award for a one act play I wrote in college.
First Publication: Technically, I had a poem published in a book and my one act play was also published.
Conferences: None. What for?
Query/Pitch: Pitch? Like Pitch Perfect? Love the first movie, hate the others.
Novel (that you wrote): I love them both equally.
Genre: I like mystery/thriller. I do enjoy the occasional fantasy and YA. Whatever sounds good to me I’ll read it.
Author: I really don’t have a particular favorite author. I do enjoy Liane Moriarty books. I’ve read four of her books so far.
Writing Music: I enjoy classical music and the occasional opera music. Sometimes I’ll listen to the entire soundtrack of Edward Scissorhands.
Writing Snack/Drink: I try not to eat when I’m reading a book. I tend to forget I have food and it gets cold or whatever. Even some snacks. I do love to drink my tear or a diet soda once in a while.
Movie: That’s such a difficult question. However, I will say I love Julie and Julia. I adore Julia Child, and food. I do love Beauty and the Beast, cartoon version, NOT the live action.
Writing Memory: Honestly, when I wrote Fanfics and I got great compliments, especially on stories that I’ve worked so hard on and tried to make as accurate as possible. Fanfic writing is fun! I don’t care what anybody says. It’s GREAT practice.
Childhood Book: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I told you I love food.
Reading: I’m reading several books right now. I’m almost finished with one and halfway through a couple of them.
Writing: This at the moment.
Listening To: I’m slowly becoming obsessed with iHeartRadio. So right now it’s playing random music.
Watching: Nothing right now. Although the BF and I are catching up on Criminal Minds.
Learning: How to keep getting up early to do some yoga and meditation.
Want to be Published: I do…but I don’t want the attention. Introvert/anxiety issues and being in the spotlight is a huge avoidance for me.
Traditional or Indie: Maybe indie. I’m not sure.
Wildest Goal: I can’t be a mermaid, so I’ll settle with actually finishing one of those stories.
