You Made A Difference {A Tag About Blogs}

Time for another fun tag!

Today I am doing the You Made a Difference tag created by Jem Jones. Thanks for creating this fun tag, Jem, and for tagging me! ❤

The Rules

Answer all the questions. The answers to your questions are the people that you tag! You can tag as many or as few people as you’d like. Have fun!

Now, onto the tag…

Old friends

  • Who was the first blogger you followed? (or the first few you remember)

The first blogger that I followed was Hanna of Taking My Time. It was Hanna that inspired me to start blogging myself. I’m so thankful for her and her friendship. ❤

  • Who was the first person to comment on your blog?

The first person to comment on my first blog was Savannah Grace of Savannah Grace Writes. She hasn’t been blogging lately, but you should definitely check out her past posts and her writing!

  • Sometimes bloggers stop blogging or go on indefinite hiatus – who do you miss now they’re gone?

Hannah Rodriguez of Furious Ever Afters. I loved the playlists she created and overall her posts. She is definitely missed in the blogosphere!

  • Who started blogging around the same time as you? 

I honestly cannot think of anyone that started blogging when I started blogging in 2015. There were people who were already blogging, and I just sort of joined in with them.

*short break for my blogging backstory* In 2015, I started a blog called A Little Bit of Everything. I literally blogged about everything there, from snapshots of my life to fantastical serial stories. In 2016, I moved my blog to Ramblings of a Writer. I got more serious about blogging about reading and writing! I finally moved to Notebooks and Novels in 2017, and I’ve been here ever since! 🙂

Current bloggers

  • Do you have a blogging friendship which has extended beyond the screen?

I’m afraid that I haven’t gotten to meet any of my blogging friends yet, but I hope to one day!

  • Which blogger has most influenced your current blogging or writing style?

Hhhhmmmm…. I’m going to say Cait of Paper Fury (Jem is right-I think that all of us book bloggers want to be like her). She is a blogging QUEEN, and once I discovered her blog I knew that I wanted to be as passionate and excited about blogging as she was. I also wanted to take pretty pictures of books like Cait does (her Instagram is SO PRETTY I love alll the books!) and have a pretty website too.

  • Who was the last person who tagged you?

The last person to tag me was Jem Jones! She is so nice and has a great blog. Go check her blog out by clicking here!

Tag! You’re It!

The Mystery Blogger Award

I am so excited to be doing the Mystery Blogger Award today!

Blogging awards and tags are so fun, right? Many thanks to Rachel of Joyful Creations for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award! Be sure to check out Rachel’s lovely blog, Joyful Creations. She has lots of great posts! Now, onto the award…

Now it’s time for the questions!

Are you an early bird, night owl, or neither?

I would say that I am neither an early bird or a night owl. I have a hard time waking up early and staying up sometimes. I need my sleep to say the least. xD

What’s your favorite YouTube channel or blog?

I have lots of favorite blogs, but my favorite YouTube channel is Abbie Emmons’ YouTube channel (her blog is also great!). Abbie posts lots of good videos about writing; I highly recommend her channel! Click here to watch some of Abbie’s amazing videos.

Would you rather eat 3 bowls of ice cream or an entire bag of potato chips?

Three bowls of ice cream for sure! Ice cream is one of the greatest things EVER. Right now, vanilla ice cream with fruit compote sounds AMAZING.

If you could be a professional sports player/Olympian, what sport would you chose?

Gymnastics! I would love to be able to do all of the things that gymnasts can do, from the flips to the jumps to the amazing feats of strength and balance. But realistically, I think I’ll stick to writing. xD

What’s your favorite season?

I love every season for different reasons, but I think that my favorite season is autumn. Crisp weather, pumpkins, colorful leaves, Chai lattes, apples, flannels, sweaters, boots, cozying up with a book, campfires… Oh, I love autumn!

3 Things About Me

  1. I love anything with salted caramel and/or chocolate.
  2. While we’re talking about sweet things, I love to bake! I’ve baked things from croissants to macarons to layer cake, and there is still so much more that I want to make!
  3. I have Sears typewriter from 1977.

What is one random fun fact about you?

The Stories and Sketches Creative Tag

Hello, everyone!

I hope that you all are having a fantastic weekend. Today, I am very excited to be doing a creative tag created by my friend Elizabeth Anne of Stories and Sketches. This looks like a lot of fun, so let’s jump right into it! =)

What is a Creative Tag?

Elizabeth Anne explains it best: “A creative tag is a blog post, in which the author asks a list of questions about creativity, and ‘tags’ a group of people, who then answer the questions on their blog.”

The Questions…

  • What is your favorite way to create? 
  • What is your favorite quote about creativity?
  • How do you overcome “creative block”?
  • What inspires you to create?

My Answers…

What is your favorite way to create?

My favorite way to create is through words. Specifically, I like to use the mediums of poetry and prose (fiction and nonfiction) to create with words. Check out the “My Stories” tab at the top of my blog to learn more about some of my stories! 🙂

What is your favorite quote about creativity?

I have so many quotes about creativity (specifically writing) that I love. Here’s just one of them:

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”

-William Wordsworth, English romantic poet

I like this quote because I believe that it applies not only to writing, but to all creative disciplines. ❤

How do you overcome “creative block”?

I’m really bad at this sometimes, but I overcome creative block by finding more inspiration or pushing through it. In my opinion, the best ways to overcome creative block are to create and see what happens, to get more inspiration, or to take a brief break.

What inspires you to create?

Many different things inspire me to create. Here is a list of some of them:

  • A cause or issue that I feel passionate about raising awareness for or resolving.
  • Other forms of art, such as paintings, songs, pictures, or other stories or poems!
  • Places that I have visited.
  • Stories that people tell me.
  • …And, many, many other things!

I Tag…

Hanna @ Taking My Time

Penny Wood @ Jane Austen’s Lightsaber

YOU! I would love for all of you other creatives to take advantage of this tag. ❤

The Get to Know Me Tag: Writer’s Edition

It’s time for a tag! And not just any tag… It’s the Get to Know Me Tag: Writer’s Edition, created by my friend Savannah @ Inspiring Writes. Thank you for letting me steal this tag, True! =) I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and am so excited! Before we jump into the fun, we have some rules…

Vital Stats And Appearance

Name: Micaiah Saldaña

Nicknames: My dad will sometimes call me Caiah, but that’s about it. =)

 
And for the questions I skipped… *points to above photo*
Firsts

First novel written: I’m going to go with Light in the Dark here, a serial I posted on my old blog. It just…. Never got finished. Ever. And I don’t know if I want to go back and see all the messiness. xD

First novel completed: Runaway was my first “novel” that I finished, but since that’s in a notebook I don’t know the exact word count. I still refer to it as my first novel though. xD

First award for writing: I got a second place award in Tessa Emily Hall’s Monday’s Minute Challenge. It was small, but I was so excited and kept sending in pieces. I ended up getting first place a couple times after I started honing my skills. *flexes writing muscles* xD

First publication: First publication… I had a few articles published in PURSUE magazine (check out the new issue here!), but my first piece of fiction to be published will be my short story Dear Jamie, Love Rory. And guys. IT COMES OUT NEXT MONTH!!!!

I hope to see you all here at Notebooks and Novels on July 19th, which is Dear Jamie, Love Rory‘s release date and the kick off day for a blog party I’m planning to celebrate its release! =D 

First conference: I haven’t attended any writing conferences yet, but I am working towards a trip to an ACFW conference. =D

First query/pitch: Nothing here either…. YET. 😉

Favorites

Novel (that you wrote): Ummm….. The one I’m working on now. Currently it’s in the idea/brainstorm/find-an-actual-plot stage, but I’m calling it Where Has the Sun Gone right now. I already love it!

Genre: I’ve dabbled everywhere and it is SO HARD TO CHOOSE. Can I just say anything that falls under the YA Christian umbrella? Yes? Thank you. =)

Author: NOPE NOPE NOPE I CANNOT PICK.

Writing Music: Anything Fleurie and Ruelle, although I listened to a lot of alternative/folk-style music for Dear Jamie, Love Rory.

Time To Write: At night before I go to bed. Like right now. *innocent whistling*

Writing Snack/Drink: Salted caramel hot chocolate and anything sweet/baked/bad for me. Lately I’ve been making Nutella strawberry sandwiches and eating Sour Patch Kids. SO GOOD.

Movie: Ummmm…… Every Marvel movie ever made? xD To be honest, if I could only pick one movie, it’d be Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightley version). That movie…. ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Writing Memory: It’s a tie between seeing an email saying that I won One Teen Story‘s writing contest and having my mentor Tessa Emily Hall come to lunch at my house. ❤

Childhood Book: AGAIN I CANNOT PICK. I loved reading as a little kid as much as I do now, so it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite out of everything I read. But if I have to pick, it’d be the Chronicles of Narnia and The Jesus Storybook Bible. My dad read them aloud to my sisters and I when we were little, and I have such fond memories of them. Besides, they’re books I still enjoy today. =)

Currently

Reading: Porch Swing Girl by Taylor Bennet (see my interview with her here). It’s so good! ❤

Writing: A story about selkies, a rogue Fae, an English earl, a boy who tells the best stories, and a girl with eyes the color of the Sea. I plan on sending it to Spring Song Press this month. =) I’m also brainstorming THE STORY. We shall see where all that thinking goes. =) I know for sure that it’ll have lots of dessert…. xD

^^^^Lots of desserts like this. ❤

Listening to: Lots and lots of dreamy Fleurie music. Have I mentioned that it’s the best? AND HER NEW MUSIC VIDEO OH MY WORD. Click here to be amazed, and to have a great new song stuck in your head.

Watching: I’m excited to watch The Flash season 4 (it’s now on Netflix!) and am also hoping to rewatch Downton Abbey, my favorite tv show.

Learning: That new isn’t always terrible or scary and that it’s okay to take what feels like forever searching for and writing the story of your heart.

Future

Want To Be Published: YES YES YES YES. I would love to publish a novel of mine one day! =D

Indie or Traditional: Both. I think it would be fun to publish a novella indie style and publish a novel traditionally. =)

^^^^Aren’t inspirational quotes the best?
 

Wildest Goal: To write a timeless classic that would be ranked alongside the works of Dickens, Austen, Brontë, and other greats, and for it to be as heartbreaking and touching as Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love. A girl can dream, right?

I Tag…
Anyone who loves Pride and Prejudice, ice cream, Downton Abbey, and salted caramel hot chocolate. Also, we could totally be best friends if you love all of that stuff. Think of all the binge watching and junk food…..
Do you like Downton Abbey? What is one of your wildest goals/dreams? Have you listened to “Constellate”? What is one of your favorite desserts? Let’s chat, friends! =)

11 Random Facts About Me
  1. My favorite college basketball team is the UK Wildcats. GO WILDCATS!!! =D 
  2. I go by my middle name. My first name is Rochelle, but since that’s what my mother and grandmother go by, I go by my middle name, Micaiah. 
  3. I am named after an OT prophet who prophesied against Ahab. You can find his story in 1 Kings 22:1-28. 
  4. Lots of people say my name incorrectly. The correct way to say my name is MY-KAY-UH. Hopefully that makes sense. =)

  6. My favorite superhero is the Flash. 
  7. Although my favorite superhero is the Flash, I usually prefer Marvel over DC.

  9. I love any and all shades of blue. 
  10. My dream car is a powder blue VW bug. 
  11. I’m terrible at playing soccer and pretty much any sport. Just ask my friends. xD 
Before this goes any further, here’s the pretty award. =)
    The Questions
    What’s your favorite season?

    My favorite season is probably autumn. I love wearing sweaters, drinking mochas, and seeing all of the pretty fall colors in the not-too-cold-not-too-hot weather. And autumn is such a great season for writing! =)

    Have you ever wished that you could go back in time? Why?

    Yes, I have. I’ve always wanted to go to the past and crash a Victorian era ball, get some SUPER vintage books (a typewriter wouldn’t hurt either), meet Jane Austen, shake George Washington’s hand… If only I had a WABAC. *sigh*

    Why did you start blogging?

    I started blogging because I had discovered that I had a gift of writing and I wanted to share that gift with the world. I wanted to help bring people closer to Jesus through the words I wrote and to make a difference by using twenty six letters of the alphabet.

    What’s your dream vacation?

    My dream vacation would be an American road trip. I would take my family and our Airstream and we’d visit every single state, stopping whenever and wherever we wanted to. Visit Washington D.C.? Sure. Hike part of the Appalachian trail? You bet. See a Cubs game in Chicago? Absolutely! And there would be s’mores. Lots and lots of s’mores… What’s cool is that I get to live my dream vacation, little by little, as my family travels America! =) 

    What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to try but never have?
    I’ve always wanted to try to actually play an instrument. I don’t know if I’d be good at it (I’m guessing that the answer is NO), but I could at least be musical in some way, shape, or form. You never know until you try, right? 
    Team Cap or Team Iron Man?
    Team Cap all the time! No offense, Iron Man, but honestly, I agree with Captain America on so many levels. It helps that he’s one of my favorite superheroes, of course. =D
    What’s your favorite book of the bible?
    My favorite book of the Bible is Luke. It’s not only my favorite Gospel, but also my favorite story.

    Tea or coffee?

    Can I pick neither? How about a mocha? Or a mug of salted caramel hot chocolate? ANYTHING WITH CHOCOLATE AND CARAMEL.

    Cats or Dogs?

    Dogs. Puppies. Puppy dogs. I LOVE MY PUPPIES. Just LOOK at that face. Yup, dogs. Dogs all the time. =)

    What were your favorite novels in middle school?
    In middle school, I really loved Alister McGrath’s Aedyn Chronicles and Kate Dicamillo’s Because of Winn-Dixie. I was also pretty into Gary Paulsen’s novels, Chuck Black, and Melanie Dickerson. Especially Melanie Dickerson. =)
    What’s someplace you’ve always wanted to visit?
    Wow, I’ve been to so many places that I’ve dreamed of going that it’s hard to pick somewhere. I’ve always wanted to travel to Mexico though. I’d love to soak up the culture, eat lots of yummy food, and visit my sponsored child. =)

    I Tag…
    Madeline Joy @ Tower of Joy

    + Anyone who agrees that caramel makes everything better! Or anyone who wants to, I suppose. =)

    The Movie Book Tag

    Lights, cameras, action!  Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for me to unveil a tag of my own invention: THE MOVIE BOOK TAG. *throws popcorn and confetti* I can’t believe that I have finally gotten around to making my own tag! And it’s about books. Books and movies. Almost as good as books and cookies, right? =D 
    The Rules
    Thank the person that tagged you and link back to the original creator (ME!). 
    Answer all eight questions.
    Tag at least two other bloggers. 
    The Questions and Answers
    Books or movies, which are better? 
    Books. Hands down, books. Why have I even included this as a question?! *see above gif* No offense, movies, but you don’t smell as good or look as pretty on shelves. Just saying.

    What book needs to be made into a movie RIGHT NOW?

    For me, it’s a tie between Nadine Brandes’s A Time To Die and Joanne Bischof’s To Get To You. Both would be such epic movies, with aaaalllll the feels and shrieks and confetti and the need for sequels. *sighs*

    What movie adaption of a book has disappointed you the most?

    The entire Percy Jackson movie series. I watched the movies and died a little inside. *insert popcorn throwing and weeping here* First of all, the movies barely even stuck to the true story in the books. Second of all… The books are just so much better. Period. *more weeping*

    What movie adaption of a book has made you throw confetti and walk away happy?

    The Hunger Games movies left me a very happy human being—the only one that disappointed me was Mockingjay Part One. *Snoopy happy dance* But other than that, I felt that they did a pretty good job staying true to the original books, not to mention the superb acting brought Katniss and the world around her to life. *throws confetti* MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR.

    What movie adaption of a book have you seen, but never read the book it’s based on?

    Gah, I am SO guilty of watching movies and yet not seeing the books that they are based off of. But if I have to pick one that I REALLY need to read, it’d be The Book Thief. I loved the movie so much, and now I need to read the actual book. Wow, every time I do a post, I end up with a longer TBR list. #bloggerproblems

    What book have you read, but never seen the movie adaption of?
    *puts on a thinking cap* I don’t think that I have ever read a book and never seen its movie adaption. It’s usually the other way around (see above). Which is SO SAD. That just means I should be reading more…. *barricades self in room with aaaalllll the books* 
    Who would star in the movie adaption of your current WIP? 
    Ooooohhhh this is a hard one! *takes a look at my character board* For Second Star To The Right, I’d pick Georgie Henley to play Jane Darling. She just looks like Jane and seems soft-spoken and gentle yet strong-like Jane. Peter would be the hardest for me to cast, since he’s once of the most complicated characters in the whole story. Maybe Josh Hutcherson?

    Captain Hook is easier though. He’d just be a teenage version of Colin O’Donoghue,you know, the guy who plays Captain Hook from Once Upon A Time. He’s seriously the best Hook EVER. Don’t argue with me, because you KNOW it is the truth, okay? Okay. Now, next question…

    When the credits roll after the movie adaption of the WIP you discussed above, what song will be playing?
    Ruth B’s “Lost Boy” for SURE would be playing in the credits. That’s the song that has inspired this whole story, the one that has put fairies and never growing up and Lost Boys in my imagination. *insert happy, dreamy sighs here*
    The Questions (Again) xD
    1. Books or movies, which are better?
    2. What book needs to be made into a movie RIGHT NOW?
    3. What movie adaption of a book has disappointed you the most?
    4. What movie adaption of a book has made you throw confetti and walk away extremely happy?
    5. What movie adaption of a book have you seen, but never read the book it’s based on?
    6. What book have you read, but never seen the movie adaption of?
    7. If your WIP was turned into a movie, who would play the main character(s)? 
    8. When the credits roll after the movie adaption of the WIP you discussed above, what song will be playing? 

    I Tag…

    Anyone who wants to do this tag (yes, I know, I’m breaking my own rule)! I’d love to see lots of you take this tag and have fun with it. =D If you do, you can use the graphic at the tippy-top of this post for your post. And let me know if you do this tag so that I can hop over to your blog and check out your answers! =)

    Since we’re not in a library or a movie theatre, now we get to TALK!!!! Will you be doing this tag? Which do YOU prefer, books or movies? What is one of your favorite books? One of your favorite movies? Grab some popcorn and a soda (or cookies and cocoa, whatever you’d like) and let’s chat in the comments! 

    The Cookie Book Tag

    I have discovered my dream tag. Cookies and books. All I need is a mug of cocoa and I’m practically in Heaven. Many thanks to Savannah of Scattered Scribblings for this tag. I just so happened to eat a few cookies during the month of July… So here I am. =) Ready to get started? 
    Chocolate Chip // A book that never gets old
    25873284
    A book that never gets old… I’ve flailed over this book before, and I’ll do it again. Joanne Bischof’s To Get To You will never get old for me. Every time I open it, I find something else about it that I love and another quote to highlight. =) 
    Dutch Snowballs // A book that gave you an unexpected surprise
    29618105
    I’m taking it that this doesn’t mean nice surprises only…. *tears up* THIS WAS A BAD SURPRISE!!!!!!! A BAD BAD SURPRISE!!!!!! *more tears* The Lost Girl of Astor Street by Stephanie Morill was full of twists and turns and surprises. This book ruined me. Yet I still have no regrets. xD 
    Molasses // A book with a character that gets in a sticky situation 
    27821869
    Isn’t that every book EVER? xD A book with a character who gets into an especially sticky situation is Stone and Snow by Sibella Giorello. I couldn’t help but feel a little sick to the stomach as Raleigh was torn between being loyal to her friend and hurting the people around her through her actions as she tried to solve a certain mystery. 
    Oreo // A book dealing with the light and the darkness
    33
    When I think light and darkness, I automatically think of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. I never finished the last book (*hides face in utter shame*), but the light and darkness thing can be so literal in Tolkien’s writing. Sauron and Gandalf, orcs and elves, Mordor and the Shire…. Oh, I need to read these again. 
    Sugar // A book with a sugary sweet villain
    8428195
    Definitely Entwined by Heather Dixon. Keeper was so nice at first… He let Azalea and her sisters dance, always provided desserts that I wished I could take off the pages… *happy sighs* AND THEN HE TURNED!!!!!!!! But he seriously was so sugary sweet and evil all at the same time. Mostly evil though. *glares at Keeper* 
    Monster // A book that confused your emotions
    10507293
    The Selection by Kiera Cass confused my emotions. I mean, one moment I’m rooting for America and the next I utterly despise her. And then I can’t pick between Maxon and Aspen and then there are the other girls and goodness gracious this is a run-on sentence if I’ve ever seen one…. I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE ENTIRE SERIES!!!! 
    Snickerdoodle // A book that made you laugh
    22840398
    Another Heather Dixon book!!!! Illusionarium really truly made me smile and giggle, ESPECIALLY Lockwood. Take, for example, this lovely quote….
    “You shot the chandelier down, Lockwood? I yelled as bullets ricocheted past my head and jangled as they shot the prisms of the chandelier. I ducked down and shook the rifle from my shoulder.
    “Of course not!” Lockwood yelled, his rifle firing so rapidly it fogged the air with steam. “I climbed up the wall and pulled it down with my weight, what do you think?” 
    Illusionarium by Heather Dixon
    #lockwoodforever Enough said. xD
    Peanut Butter // A book with a nutty character
    1611657
    One of the nuttiest characters I’ve encountered in fiction is good old Peet the sock man in On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson. Socks on his hands, a quirky wooden castle in the woods, his strange way of speech…. Nutty doesn’t do Peet justice. xD 
    Have you eaten any cookies or read any books lately? What’s your favorite type of cookie? What’s your favorite genre of book? Have you read any books with characters who love cookies in them (and not just If You give a Mouse a Cookie…)? Get some cookies, cocoa, and a good book and let’s chat!
