The following questions are based on the seven deadly sins and are relevant to reading and writing.
  1. Pride – Share a line or small scene that you’re really proud to have written.
Okay, there are tons of things I'm proud to have written, but now I can't think of any. So...moving on. 

All right I'm back, though if you're reading this chronologically (which you probably are, if you're not you're weird) it doesn't seem as though I left at all. 
So, here's a line from one of my drafts of my vampire novels. It's one of my favorites, but may or may not survive into the final (the real actual honest-to-goodness final) draft. 

I wasn't concerned about falling hundreds of feet to my death; I had far too many other things on my mind. 

2. Envy – Tell us about a book you wish you’d written.

Wow, these are hard questions. 
Wish I'd written seems like a strong statement, but I'll go with it. 
Okay, I guess I'm going to have to go with Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor because of all its wonderful feels, excitement, and human emotion all strung into a wonderful fantasy world. It's fantasy taken to a higher/literary level and that is what I strive to do in my fantasy stories. 

3. Wrath – Tell us about a trope or cliche that makes you furious.

The male continuously being ridiculously annoyingly over-protective of the female, to the point in which they are constantly arguing in like every chapter. I think that it's great for a man to be protective of a woman (although this should go both ways), but at a certain point the man should respect his friend/lover/sister/whoever's feelings and wishes and trust in her strength.
That being said, apparently I'm a bit of a hypocrite because I unknowingly did this in one of my stories. In my defense, I did have the man eventually back down and stop being overly protective, but I do plan to completely fix this in the next rewrite, which I'm currently working on. He is going to worry about her, but also trust her and have faith in her. Cause it's 2016 for crying out loud. 

4. Gluttony – Tell us about a trope you can’t get enough of.

Oh crap. I don't have any idea. Next question. 

5. Lust – Tell us about a character you’d do unspeakable things to.

Unspeakable things? We're talking hand holding and walks in the park, right? Right. That's what we're talking about. 
Okay, I admit that I'm totally in love with Eric from The Southern Vampire Mysteries (I'm talking about the books, not True Blood the TV show. Boo on the TV show. Yay for the books. Book Eric is way more awesome than TV Eric.) I would totally take unspeakable walks in the park (at night of course) with Eric. Though I could never be in a relationship with him. No way. He's way too full of himself and controlling. So just unspeakable hand holding and park walking, no relationship. 
Also, I've accidentally fallen in love with several of the male characters I've created. So much so that I've accidentally given them romantic story lines that I hadn't initially planned to give them. Whoops. Must rein in that impulse. 

6. Sloth – Tell us about your favorite form of procrastination.

Are we talking writing procrastination? Because this is not a problem for me. To be honest, I think I have the opposite problem. Sometimes I have to force myself not to write and instead actually relax. Although sometimes social media can be a bit of a distraction from the writing. 

7. Greed – Tell us which author’s top of your auto-buy list.

No one currently. There are many authors that I love, but I've recently been trying to read a variety of stories by different authors, more as a learning experience to better my writing than for pure indulgence. Not that I don't enjoy it, because of course I do. 

All right, I am invoking the sin of sloth and skipping gluttony. So there. 
Elly, I am tagging you and therefore anointing you as cool. And giving you a free idea for a blog post. You're welcome.   :)
