Today is the Reader Request!!!! Thank you for the questions I got and I hope you enjoy reading my answers.
What gave you the idea for the Zion trilogy?
For those who haven’t heard of my Zion trilogy, it’s a dystopian/sci-fi trilogy I wrote, which you can find on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/s?i=digital-text&rh=p_27%3AAsh+Digest&s=relevancerank&text=Ash+Digest&ref=dp_byline_sr_ebooks_1
I’m not totally sure what inspired it, actually. I know I really wanted to write my own dystopian trilogy after reading The Hunger Games and Maze Runner trilogies, but I’m not sure what actually inspired the plot. All I know is that I was in the back verandha of my house sorting out catalogues to deliver when I started getting literal pictures in my head of all theses different stuff that I ended up using in my story – I just got these pictures in my head and I just started writing down what I would see and voila! The Zion trilogy was born.
How has your life changed during the 2020 social distancing etc?
Not too much, cause I never really went out too much or socialized with anyone due to 1) no-one really wanting anything to do with me and my family and 2) depression and anxiety issues. I mean, I would be friendly and try to talk to people, but never actually “socialised” in my opinion.
So all this social distancing hasn’t really affected me all that much.
Do you like strawberries? (Goldfinch told me it is strawberry season for you)
Yeah, strawberries are nice. They’re not my go-to for fruit snacks, but they are nice.
Where do you see yourself in ten years time?
After the way 2020 has been so far, I’m scared to give an answer to this, haha!
I don’t really have any idea other than what I hope and dream about.
What have you been up to?
You mean in general? Um…schoolwork (or studies, whatever you wanna call them), chores, doing writing roleplay. My Grandma and my great-auntie Clare came to visit last month (I think?) or the month before, and they ended up taking me and my siblings to the pub for the first time, we spent time at the beach, and Grandma and Auntie Clare took me and my mum out for just some girl time which they called “adulting”. Also, me and Mum were invited out recently by some ladies at this church we go to for this Ladies only dinner thing at a Chinese restaurant – it was pretty fun! Sure, I just sat there silently while they all chatted, but the food was great!
Speaking of the church, they have this Youth Group thing every Sunday afternoon/evening where we get to play games and sing and just be our silly, childish selves. We even went on a hike once, it was cool.
Family situation hasn’t been so good health wise and otherwise. And my state is now going into a temporary lockdown 😥
Um…I think that’s about it? Sorry I haven’t been updating my stories, it’s just been kinda full on and involved lately…well, kinda with this whole fucking year, actually…and I just haven’t been in the proper mindset for it, though I’m going to try and get back into it, even if I have to kick my dumb muse’s ass myself.
How are you doing?
As of this moment? I’m tired.
Of how a few things have been going for me.
I’m just really tired and I just want it all to be over.
But other than that, I’m good, promise. Just tired.
And…that’s all, really, I guess.
I hope you all enjoyed reading my answers.
Have a great day/night!
