The big bad writers tag

Hello! How was your day so far? Mine was busy busy busy! we did a Christmas party for our daycare and that was sooo busy.
So I'm not gonna do my Christmas challenge yet..maybe tonight when I can use my sister's phone :)
But on a very awesome blog I found a tag and the girl there said everyone could do it. This is her blog name;     www.thegoodnessrevolt.com.
And she had this tag on it and it was for writers and I'm a bit of a writer myself so I thought well shoot! I think I'll do it! :) So here goes!
WRITE FUEL: WHAT DO YOU EAT/DRINK WHILE WRITING?
Um..Whatever food I'm eating at that time of day..usually dinnertime, but I ALWAYS drink water or carrot juice (If I have it :)

WRITE SOUNDS: WHAT DO YOU LISTEN TO WHILE WRITING?
my spotify account or playlists on YouTube, which is usually like OSTs from Anime's that I watch (which are awesome!) or minecraft music :) or..others like; Owl city, fall out boy or any other band that I like.

WRITE VICE: WHAT’S YOUR MOST DEBILITATING DISTRACTION?
When I have something else on my mind.

WRITE HORROR: WHAT’S THE WORST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED TO YOU WHILE WRITING?
Um...accidentally erasing like 5 pages of my writing....That was before I discovered the 'undo' button :)

WRITE JOY: WHAT’S THE BEST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED WHILE WRITING OR HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE 
SMALL VICTORIES?
I sigh a sigh of relief....or squeal and all my siblings in the room look at me..and I like; 'Oh nothing'.

WRITE CREW: WHO DO YOU COMMUNICATE WITH OR NOT COMMUNICATE WITH WHILE WRITING?
Only when I randomly talking to one of my siblings....I don't really have a writing crew..

WRITE SECRET: WHAT’S YOUR WRITING SECRET TO SUCCESS OR HIDDEN FLAW?
Hmm...Well I've never 'successfully' finished a novel or book..my secret to any success is visualization..I Always picture it as a movie! But! That is also my flaw :)

WRITE-SPIRATION: WHAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU PRODUCTIVE?
Music, quotes, movies, books, and such..

WRITE PEEVE: WHAT’S ONE THING WRITERS DO (OR YOU DO) THAT’S ANNOYING?
What I do that annoys me is when I want to write but I can't hence the name; writer's block.

WRITE WORDS- SHARE ONE SENTENCE FROM A PROJECT. PAST OR PRESENT
Ooh...Yay! (squeals :) Be write back (get it? Write..right..eh? Okay never mind :)
This story kinda based from fan-fiction, but the rest is what I made up myself, but I'm only showing you tiny bit! Hope you like it! and let me know what you think of it!
(This is the main character's grandfather speaking) 
“Okay from the beginning. or as they say in the movie, once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, there was a couple, who adopted a little boy, this boy was what you’d call ‘force sensitive.”

Hope you liked it! I'll try to update my Christmas challenge ASAP!
Bye bye for now!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Hello! I'm so excited! Today, December 18th 2015. The seventh Star wars movie comes out! I can't wait to see it! I mean The last time it came out it was like forty-something years ago! (Before my time!) Now a star wars movie comes out in my lifetime!? I have to say I'm pretty proud to be in this generation.
Imagine saying to your kids in a couple twenty years and saying; "Yup kids, when I was fifteen years old (or whatever age you are :) the seventh star wars movie came out! And it was the year in 2015 when star wars merchandise probably sold the best" :)
I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! I'll probably have to wait to see it though because they'll probably be sold out in theaters for like two-three weeks (I'm only estimating :)
Anyways! I don't know the exact story plot but I'll have to find out.
Oh! BTW-6 days till Christmas!!!!!!!
And here is today's day for the Christmas Challenge!


                             

 18. Write what Christmas sounds like.
Hmm...Jingle bells, silence when it snows, loud! tearing wrapping paper, coughs :) carols, crunching snow, and angels :)

Today is also my mom's birthday :) (lucky for her birthday to be on the star wars movie release date :) Anyways! Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Well thanks for reading! May the force be with you and Merry Christmas!

Where were we?...Oh yes!

                                  

12. Do something for someone you usually talk talk to.
Well I'm normally a shy and quiet person and try not to talk to strangers, but my mom and I were Christmas shopping today and I held a door open for someone at gordman's, I cleaned out some trash out of a shopping cart at Target and I've been trying to notice other people and compliment their hair or clothing; like today I complimented a girl's hair which really pretty and curly (I also like dreads and cornrow hairstyle quite a bit :)

13. Selfie Or Groupie
Um..I don't have a phone or anything to do that on..my sister does groupies with me and my younger sister though.

14. Design and draw your own Christmas tree
Well I drew it..I haven't colored it yet, maybe I can put it up sometime, but it looks like a green, nerdy, geeky, and pretty type of tree.

15. Write what Christmas smells like
Peppermint, pine trees, wrapping paper, gingerbread, chilly outside, Warm fireplace, wood, and cough drops :)

16.Fuzzy socks or sweaters?
Both! Because fuzzy socks are..well fuzzy! And sweaters are warm and comfy!

17.Quote Buddy the Elf loudly in public
"I'm singing! I'm in a store!" Yeah..I did that at home..

So that's all for now! BTW-My mom's birthday is tomorrow and..It's snowing a tiny bit where I live and I've been waiting so long so yay!!!!!
Have a blessed day! And Merry Christmas!!!!

The Christmas Challenge Day 9


Hello! Today we did another project with our daycare kids! We used yarn and cereal to make a fruit loops cereal garland for the tree! It was really fun! Last night I also worked on my Christmas list for my mom and finished it! (Shocker :) My other two sisters haven't finished yet, But they should hurry don't you think? :)
Anyways!!! Now for..Yup you guessed it; The Christmas Challenge day 9!!!!!



                                

                                          9. Elves or Reindeer? Why?
                Hmm....I like both, Maybe reindeer...Yeah I choose Reindeer, because it depends on what type of elf we're talking about :) I like fantasy elves a bit better than short Santa elves (No offense Elves!!!!!)

So...What are your plans for Christmas?
Well I guess I'll see you later! Merry Christmas!

The Christmas challenge day 8

Hello hello hello! how are you today! Not much going on right now, we did a Christmas activity today with the kids in my mom's daycare, yesterday we made salt dough 'cookies', now today we're painting them and then tomorrow we'll put 'em up on the 'daycare' tree in the basement. The kids are so cute! :) Anyways! now to continue the Christmas challenge!

                                     


                                                        8. Do you believe in Santa?
                      Um..well my whole life I was taught he wasn't real, but last year I thought it
       wouldn't hurt to pretend that I did. :) I always wanted to when I was little though, like I missed out on a bit of my childhood not being able to write to him or sit on his lap, but other than that I'm okay :) right? XD

So yeah...I guess that's it for now! And......MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Christmas challenge

I think I'll do a Christmas challenge, (though I'm like a week late :) but I'll catch up (hopefully) but no pictures 'cause that problem hasn't been fixed yet :) Well let's get started!

                                

1. favorite Christmas tradition
Um..well one of my favorite Christmas tradition is; Christmas eve, because we go to our relatives house (on my dad's side) and have Cuban food, talk and play games in their basement, then...drumroll..PRESENTS (how selfish I am :) yes presents, then we leave and go home, (all my siblings will be there :) we'll get red and white striped PJs on, my mom will set up a tea party on a table that has suddenly shrunk now that we're all grown-ish. After the tea party we sing carols, say what we like best about the sibling next to us. Then we go to the basement and pick out a colorful flavored candy cane (we have about 5 trees at home :) from the basement tree, then we go to the biggest bedroom in the house (usually the boys room or me and my sister's room, this year it's our room :) and we all sleep there. Then...Christmas morning!
This year will be slightly different because I'll be spending Christmas eve night at my dad's and then on December 26th we do our Christmas eve at home.

2. favorite Christmas movie
hmm...the Grinch that stole Christmas (the animated version :) and little drummer boy.

3. favorite Christmas cookie
Um..well I don't really have a favorite, so I'll just list the sweets we make; Peanut butter cookies, snicker doodles, sugar cookies, cannoli, cream puffs, gingerbread, peanut butter truffles, mocha truffles (these are so YUMMY), chocolate chip cookies, etc.

4. write a short poem about the true meaning of Christmas
Snowflakes falling
presents wrapped
Merrymakers calling
with mittens and snow caps
Love and joy spreading with cheer
loud enough for all to hear
None of this would be
without the love
And sacrifice for you and me
many times we've forgotten
About the truth of this great season
about a babe in swaddling clothes
Being here for a reason so we would know
of his great love for our sins and sorrows
Let us not forget
of this great gift we all can get
Just look up to the sky at night
to see the bright and shining star
That brought three wise men from afar
to see the babe, king of kings
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
(I was hoping it'd be shorter :)

5. favorite Christmas carol
Um..'The First Noel'

6. favorite Christmas pin
I don't do pinterest

7. hot cocoa or eggnog? Why?
eggnog, because it's so creamy, and it goes with just about anything.

Well that's all for now! Bye!
And Merry Christmas!!!!
