Over the past few days I’ve been digging into planning a rewrite of The Half-Elves, which is a story I initially wrote between the ages of seven and eleven. It’s getting a massive overhaul, but it’s been a lot of fun to deepen the characters I’ve known for years and flesh them out to be more realistic. The story centers around four siblings–Elk, Sarabrina, Leafman, and Saria Elfbourne–who find out they’re originally from a fantastical place called The Hylands. The story follows Elk and Leafman most closely, and so far Leafman is my favorite in this version (even if he is a ball of angst). Without further ado, his interview.

Hello, everyone! I’m back from my hiatus (more or less, at least), and looking to prep for my two-year blogiversary post. I have three questions for you:
1. What do YOU want to see in my two-year blogiversary post?
2. What are your assumptions about me? (FYI, I’m very hard to offend, so don’t be shy.)
3. Do you have any questions about me, my writing, the blog, etc. that you’d like me to answer?
I want to make the post fun for you, so please let me know down in the comments what you’d like to see. :)
Due to a hectic schedule, I haven’t managed to post according to schedule for the past three weeks, and since my schedule is just going to get more hectic going into July I’ve decided to take an official summer hiatus. I’ll still be sending out my newsletters every other week, so if you’re on the list you won’t be completely out of the loop. (If you’re not subscribed and would like to be, you can sign up via the form on the right. Just be sure to check off “Reader,” “Writer,” or both so I know which newsletter(s) should go to you.)
I’ll be back at the beginning of August, just in time for my two-year blog anniversary, and I’ll be doing some special stuff for that. I’m thinking primarily of doing a Q&A and answering your assumptions about me. I’ve been curious about the assumptions thing for as long as it’s been a trend, but I haven’t done it yet mostly because it is a trend (and also I wasn’t sure if you’d be annoyed to see yet another assumptions post XD), but I’d really like to hear your assumptions. So if you’d like you can go ahead and comment on this post with questions and assumptions, and I’ll answer them in my blogiversary post, and I’ll probably ask for more near the end of July, in case not everyone gets to it now.
Also, I’m writing for a group blog called Masterful Manuscripts now and I’ll put up about three posts there between now and the end of my hiatus, so you can continue to get writing tips, not only from me but also from a group of other talented authors, over the summer.
Have a great summer!
There’s another edition of Language of Worlds out! This month, I’ll be answering for Rynn.
1. Your character goes on a leisurely stroll. Where to?
She’s probably in the Eckards’ garden. The Eckards have a big garden surrounding their manor, always kept in wonderful shape, and it’s a favorite place for anyone who’s been there. Rynn finds it extremely relaxing. Continue reading “May-June Language of Worlds Link-Up”
