To Galloop Galore...

That has nothing to do with this. Or does it? Anyways, Jake tagged me, and so here it is! Ouch, there are 75 questions... Wonder who I'll tag?

1). What's your wordcount?
Umm... let me check. *checks* 58,220 words.

2). How long until you finish?
If I work on it, maybe a month at the most (hopes).

3). If you have finished, how long did it take you?
Uh... look above ^

4). Do you have an outline?
Threw that away a long time ago. >_> <_<

5). Do you have a plot?
I hope I do! Gack.

6). How many words do you typically write a day?
A regular, not-much-time-to-spare day? Then about a thousand at the most.

7). What was your greatest word count in one day?
4,500 to 5,000.

8). What was your least impressive word count in one day?
Umm... If none doesn't count, then about two words. O_o I typed, 'Aneth stood' and then my mom said I needed to get off... We had to clean for company.

9). What inspired you to write?
Who says I write? Well, actually, other books and authors. Wayne Thomas Batson, C. S. Lewis, Jill Williamson, the list goes on and on... actually, after I finished a book, I always wanted to be able to create something of my own with words... I failed till this novel. :D

10). Does your novel/story have a theme song?
Um, I'm not sure, though it would probably be a LOTR sound track.

11). Assign each of your major characters a theme song
Huh? Well, I'm not sure...
Myrean-- Maybe Rohan music (can't remember the name) or like Jake used, 'You Don't Own Me' by Disciple.
Aneth-- Ah, I'm not sure. He's a hard character to put to music, so I'll just let that alone...
Aori and Jinrari-- (intelligent wolves) probably 'Avalanche' by Manifest, though I'm not exactly sure why...
That's all I can figure out.

12). Which character is most like you?
Probably Myrean--in personality, but not looks. Maybe a little of the indecision Aneth has... at times. Most of the time he's pretty confident.

13). Which character would you most likely be friends with?
Probably... Myrean and maybe Eldrin.

14). Do you have a Gary-Stu or Mary Sue character?
Wha? Who?

15). Who is your favorite character in your novel?
How can you be this cruel? I have to PICK? Well, I can't, so Blogger-Tag-whatever you are, I'm not going to tell you. Sorry.

16). Have your characters ever done something completely unexpected?
Yah. Of course. Why?

17). Have you based any of your novel directly on your personal experiences?
Uh, nay.

18). Do you believe in plot bunnies?
My version of plot bunnies-- they sit in my garden and eat all the carrots and lettuce and jalapeƱos (Yes, I love jalapeƱos), causing me to stop writing to chase them away all day. Yup. Of course, I have no idea what plot bunnies really are... *bloinks*

19). Is there magic in your novel/story?
Nay!! No! Never!!

20). Are there any holidays celebrated in your novel/story?
Not that I know of...

21). Does anyone die?
What? Of course! Niwodei died. Er... *crosses that out*

22). How many cups of coffee/tea have you consumed during your writing experience?
Not much... I'm not usually allowed to have coffee, and tea isn't always my favorite. Heh, like Eldra, I prefer water.

23). What is the latest you've stayed up writing?
Way past midnight. >_>

24). What is the best line?
Uh... maybe 'Meanwhile, the creature, known as Vedlyn, meaning ‘fear’ in some ancient language nobody bothered to remember, was leaping from rooftop to rooftop till he got to the other side of the small, sleeping town.' Or maybe, '"Why do always have to wake me up at infernal times of the night?"

25). What is the worst line?
Maybe an obvious one... 'Drugged'.

26). Have you dreamed about your novel/story or its characters?
Yes. Multiple times!

27). Does your novel rely heavily on allegory?
Nope. Not in the least bit.

28) Summarize your novel/story in under fifteen words.
Aneth and Myrean must team up to find the destined king. GACK!! That gives it all away!!! Well, not all of it *smiles deviously* There's a lot more nobody else knows about, BWAHAHAHA!!

29). Do you love all your characters?
Oh, yes, even the bad ones... Poor Lord Dvinstra, he's gonna-- *shuts her mouth*

30). Have you done something sadistic or cruel to your characters specifically to increase your word-count?
Yes, I have. I stabbed Aneth, *bleeps out the rest*

31). What is the last thing your main character ate?
Not-so-good Inn food...

32). Describe your main character in three words.
Pressed into adventure.
Does that count?

33). What does your antagonist dress up as for Halloween?
Well, I guess if he went to someone's door on Halloween, they'd say, "OH MY! I thought you were real for a moment there! Who are you dressed up as?" Then they'd sort of die... O_o He doesn't believe in dressing up when he's already frightening enough.

34). Does anyone in your story go to a place of worship?
No, they're traveling.

35). How many romantic relationships take place in your novel/story?
Uh... None, so far.

36). Are there any explosions in your novel/story?
Does a door being shattered count?

37). Is there an apocalypse in your novel/story?

38). Does your novel take place in a post-apocalyptic world?

Ah, been thinking of putting one in there, but haven't yet...

44). Does anyone have swine flu?
If they ever do get it, it wouldn't be called that...

45). Who has pets in your novel and who are they?
Well, Myrean's wolves aren't really pets, more like companions...

47). How about political figures?

Define dream sequences.

51). Is there humor?
I hope so. Probably not.

52). Is there tragedy?
Yes. Poor Aneth...

53). Does anyone have a temper tantrum?
Oh, not yet--I think.

All except ones that were already married.

I'm not totally sure, but I'd better pick out the flowers for my funeral just in case... >_>

No... But I was sad when *bleep* died.

70). Did you cheer when killing off one of your characters?
I should hope not!! *is horrified*

71). What advice would you give a fellow writer?
Oh, I don't know... 'examine the situation from all ends to see what SHOULD happen' Bad advice, I know... but I'm no professional.

73). Are there any love triangles, squares, hexagons, etc.?
