Hey'a, everyone! Today is the second day of the Ten Years of Rizkaland party over at Kendra Ardnek's blog! As part of the party, Kendra's created a Rizkaland tag . . . and I, being the lover-of-tags that I am, decided to do it. (And it also gets me points towards a giveaway . . . what? I like giveaways.)
1. Have you read Water Princess, Fire Prince yet?
Yes. Multiple times, actually.
2. If so, what is your favorite part? If not, what are you looking forward to the most?
My favorite scene is any that involves (A)Laura, (B)Clarand being sweet/amusing/awesome, or (C)both of the above.
3. It's Christmas time! What's the best birthday present you've ever received?
I feel like you have two very different celebrations in this question? But to answer the question . . . I don't know. How do you even define the 'best' present you've received? Because there's presents- like my first iPod- that are special because they mean I'm growing up. And there's presents- like my second iPod (which most of my family chipped in on because my old one was mostly dead, and which I was saving up to buy myself) or the first Hobbit extended edition- which are special because I figured the chances of my getting them were so slim that I'm not sure I even bothered asking for them. And there's presents- like the crochet owl my sister gave me for my most recent birthday or the treasure hunt she gave me for Christmas yesterday- that are special because they're a surprise and they're not big things but a lot went into them. All the types of presents are special- I can't pick a best one.
4. What are your favorite fantasy worlds?
Goldstone Wood. Scadriel. Middle Earth. Roshar. Narnia.
5. Who are your favorite fictional couples?
Not a fair question!
But if I must answer . . . Eanrin and Imraldera. Howl and Sophie Pendragon. Aethelbald and Una. Winter and Jacin. Cress and Thorne. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but oh well.
6. Do you have any projects (writing or otherwise) that you've been working on for ten years?
. . .
I don't think there are any hobbies I've had for a solid ten years. So no.
7. Fantasy weapon of choice?
Bow and arrow or staff.
8. Name your element!
Fire! Or light/energy. But probably fire.
9. What are you hoping to see in future volumes of the Rizkaland Legends?
Andrew's brothers finding out about Rizkaland. Preferably with Andrew along for the ride. More of Laura's story. I'm not really sure what else.
10. What is your favorite Christian allegory?
Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl. And then my second favorite is The Chronicles of Narnia.
Well, that was fun. Thanks to Kendra for creating this tag and writing the Rizkaland Legends. (Which, if you haven't read already, you should- the Kindle book is still free today, if you didn't get to pick it up yesterday!)
Thanks to all of you for reading!
