Beautiful People: July Edition



Hi guys! So today is yet another Beautiful People Questionaire. Once again, credit goes to Paper Fury. For this one, I’ve returned to the tried and true characters from The Gatekeeper Chronicles. This time around, I’ve chosen my character, Marcello Di Mercurio. He’s my main character’s other best friend. Yay, friendship!
So here we go. 

Do they want to get married and/or have children? Why or why not?
I think Marcello’s fairly unsure on this matter. He has no particular urge to get married and, in fact, would probably choose not to simply because his grandparents want him to. He generally likes doing whatever they tell him not to do. Because they’re horrible people. 
What is their weapon of choice? (It doesn’t necessarily have to be a physical weapon.) 
Marcello uses a rifle a lot of the time. His other weapon of choice is a sword or rapier and his skinchanging ability. 
What’s the nicest thing they’ve done for someone else, and why did they do it? 
He saves people’s lives a lot...but the nicest thing he’s ever done for someone was probably the time he gave his food away to a little girl who was living on the street. He was starving, in fact he hadn’t eaten in days, and he didn’t have any more money. But he thought she needed it more.
Have they ever been physically violent with someone, and what instigated it? 
Oh yes. Marcello tends to be a fairly violent person by nature, so it wouldn’t take much. He has rather a hair-trigger temper. He broke someone’s arm once, but they did make fun of his dead father so he had a reason. Though it might not be a good reason. 
Are they a rule-follower or a rebel? 
Rebel. Definitely.
Are they organized or messy? 
Messy. So messy. All the mess. 
What makes them feel loved, and who was the last person to make them feel that way? 
Physical affection makes Marcello feel loved, he needs a lot of physical contact. The last person to make him feel loved was his brother, before he graduated from the Academy and became an Elite. That was around two years before the story began. He hasn’t seen him in all that time. 
What do they eat for breakfast? 
He normally only gets porridge for breakfast, but his favourite is blueberry muffins. 
Have they ever lost someone close to them? What happened? 
He lost both his parents when he was six, on his mother’s birthday. He came home to find them dead on the floor. 

What’s their treat of choice? (Or, if not food, how else do they reward themselves?) 
Blueberry muffins. Or sharbat. He loves sharbat.

Ten Types of Writers

Hi guys!

So yeah. I'm back. *ducks to avoid rotten tomatoes being thrown* Sorry for being so late! In my defence, I got sick about a day after Christmas and still haven't fully recovered. Also, I kept forgetting until it was too late. But I'm back now!

I know you all thought you were finally free from my inane rambling, but no! You'll never be free.

So happy new year everyone! Please ignore that we're a few weeks into the year already. I hope it's been going well for you all so far. Today we're going to be discussing the Ten Types of Writers.

Some might say that you can't tie down a group of people to ten types, but those people are wrong. And I am right. Because I know everything. Ha*.

On we go.

*Shush, and let me have my delusions, okay.

My Favourite Tropes

Hey guys!

So a few weeks ago, several blogs I'm following all talked about their favourite tropes in books/films/tv and I thought. Hey. I'm a trope-loving human. I could talk for hours about that. I want to do it!

Quality content here, guys. Quality content.

This post has actually been planned since back in November - in fact, my initial draft talked about NaNoWriMo, which just tells you how long I left off finishing it. But it's a post I've been planning, so I'm doing it. Bear in mind that after this, I'm taking a brief break from posting for Christmas and I'll be back on the last Saturday of December with my Wrap-Up!

But that's in the future. Right now, let's talk tropes. On we go!

 Found Families
I just...I literally cannot describe to you how much I love this trope. I mean, it turns up in every one of my stories, it's in an awful lot of my favourite books/films/tv shows and I just...I love it. 
It's that friendship thing again, I'm ju…

January Wrap-Up

In no way, shape or form is this post late. Shush.

Hey guys!

So this week I'm doing my January Wrapup - a week late. I'm sorry, okay! We've covered that I'm bad at deadlines and I need to get back into the rhythm of writing posts. But it's here now.

My plans for the next few months aren't completely set in stone, but next week, I'm going to start a new series dedicated to explaining genres and giving a few examples of each one. I'm planning to start with magical realism - which I myself had trouble fully understanding for ages!

I'm also considering starting a series called 'Writer's Reviews'. This would be reviewing books and films with the goal of seeing what we as writers can take from it, whether that be through what the author did right or through what they did wrong. Would anyone be interested in that? I'm going to try one and see how it goes, see if it works alright as a format.

But that's my current plans for the blog, so …
