My Best Post Statistically: My best post by far in numbers is How Can Characters be Powerful If They're Not Real?. This post blew up and has gained over 55,000 views. 

My Best Post in My Opinion: I really like Why a Writer Should Travel: Quell Your Fears and Embrace Inspiration. I'm very passionate about traveling and I believe it's grown me so much as a writer. I also love the image I picked. ^ ^

Les Facts:

1.) I have really sensitive hearing. High pitched noises even in movies like high-pitched train brakes and screams actually cause me pain. I also can't stand the sound of teeth clacking, ice chewing, or teeth grinding.

2.) I never played video games until I was ten years old, because I thought my skills would never compare to my cousin's or sister's. Then one of my cousins introduced me to the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and I've loved playing them ever since.

3.) I own autographs from over twenty actors and actresses from live action films and anime. 

4.) Some characters on my to-cosplay list are Eowyn from the Lord of the Rings, Yuki from Fruits Basket, Lady Bishimon from Noragami, Cornelia from Code Geass, Blake Belladonna from RWBY, and Deidara from Naruto.

5.) I want to travel to Japan, England, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, New Zealand, Australia, Greece, Germany, Alaska, Hawaii, and Ireland.

6.) My favorite type of sushi is unagi. 

E. Rawls Questions:

1.) What fictional character has impacted you most? - Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games. She's taught me much about sibling love, mental illnesses, and the realities of war.

2.) What is your #1 goal for this year? - At this point? Complete NaNo. XD

3.) Name one thing that made you smile this week. - Well this week as in when I'm writing this post which is in a month in advance, I'll say getting bath bombs and bubble bars from LUSH. ^ ^

4.) What was the last book you read? - Also at this point which is a month in advance, it was The House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo. 

5.) And now for the silly question: Which planet in our solar system resembles your personality the most? - Neptune. I like blue, I'm tall (Neptune is big), and I like cold weather.

Sara's Questions:

1.) What was the last movie you watched? - At this point a month in advance, Moana. XD

2.) During what time of day (morning, afternoon, night, etc.) are you most productive? - Night.

3.) Are you a flexible/adventurous eater? Or are you more picky/finicky and less willing to try new foods? - I'm very flexible. I'll eat just about anything you put in front of me. There are few foods I won't eat.

4.) What is one thing or person that you’re grateful for today? - At this point, Lessy. I love my kitty. =^ ^=

5.) Silly question! If you could you own any fantastical animal or creature for a pet, what would it be? Why? (Oh, and what would you name it?) - Griffin and I'd call him ... Hephaestus.

My Questions: 
1.) What is the weirdest food you've ever tried?
2.) Have you ever ridden a horse?
3.) What was your first pet?
4.) What's your favorite type of nut?
5.) Silly question! What kitchen appliance do you relate to the most on a personal level?
