Behind the Blogger Tag

I’ve been tagged once again. This time, thanks are in order to Chalice of Lionhearted Art. Thank you, Chalice!

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer the questions
  3. Ping back to the creator: Ellyn of Allonsythornraxx

Questions:

1. Why did you start blogging, and why have you kept blogging?

I answered the first half of this in my last tag post, so I’ll just quote that:

I don’t remember why I initially started my blog (probably just because my mom had a blog and I thought it would be cool to have one of my own), but when I revamped it in August of 2017 it was to start building a platform for my books and to help other young authors.

I keep blogging for pretty much the same reason I started in 2017: to share my books, to help other young authors, and to connect with all of you wonderful readers and bloggers. :)

2. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?

The Liebster Award #5

The Liebster Award #5

Hello, fine humans, and welcome to part 5 of “Archer has been tagged for the Liebster Award.” XD (If you’d told me even last year that I’d know enough people to be tagged for the same recurring tag five times by five different people… I’d probably have laughed.) Anyway, since the questions are always different I don’t actually mind doing this tag over and over, I just find it a little amusing that it keeps coming around. BUT MOVING ON BECAUSE I’M RAMBLING.

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. Thanks, Eden! :D

3. Answer the questions you were asked.

4. Nominate five bloggers.

Preptober Prompts Announcement!

Preptober Prompts Announcement!

Last year, I started an event called Preptober Prompts to get people excited and thinking about their NaNoWriMo novels for the month of October (also known, in writer circles, as Preptober). Well, I’m bringing it back this year! I’ve made a few adjustments and worked out kinks from last year, and I’m hoping that this year will be even more fun.

Here’s how the event works. The prompts are centered around a theme (“music,” this year), and each week features a different category of prompts: worldbuilding prompts, character prompts, plot prompts, and flash fiction prompts. In addition, each week is hosted by a different blogger. I’m super happy to announce Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Announcement!”

Blog Schedule Change

As I’m trying to get back into things after a summer hiatus, and also going into a new school year that’s more time-intensive than previous years have been, and trying to give more time to actual story drafting, I’m finding it difficult to keep up with my current blog schedule and produce new content and that kind of thing, so I’ve decided to cut wayyyy back on my blogging schedule and make only one post per week.

Here’s the new schedule:

First and third Tuesdays will be writing tips

Second Tuesdays will be character interviews

Fourth Tuesdays will (hopefully) be book reviews

It’s going to be very different, lol, but I’m hoping it’ll work better and I’m hoping that fewer posts will also mean better posts as I’m able to put more time into them. I’m sorry for the missed posts and hectic craziness lately. Hopefully things will settle into a rhythm again with this new schedule, at least aside from Preptober Prompts in October. (This is not an official announcement. There will be an official announcement in the beginning/middle of next month, once I have the co-hosts finalized. ;) )

Anyway… that’s the latest news. I hope this change results in my better ability to serve y’all with more helpful content, more consistent (if less frequent) content, etc. :)

Two-Year Blogiversary!

Two-Year Blogiversary!

Scribes & Archers is turning two! At least the scheduled, halfway-professional version of Scribes & Archers; the amateur, sporadic blog known as Alpine Writer is just Scribes & Archers’s backstory. But anyway, to celebrate I’ll be answering your questions, reacting to your assumptions about me, and sharing some things I’ve learned, and what I’ve been up to lately. Enjoy!
