Behind the Scenes Writing Tag

So I thought it would be fun to do another tag. I saw this tag done over at Opal Swirls; and thought it would be fun. Besides, I like talking about writing.

Answer the questions and tag people.

Is there a certain snack you like to eat while writing?

I try not snack. So I will just drink countless cups of tea and coffee. But if I do snack, I like peanuts.

When do you normally write?

I haven't written in a while cause I have been so busy with studying and being sick... fun times. But I mostly write at night. I find I get more inspired at night than I do in the day time. My mind runs wild with ideas. 

Where do you write?

On my bed with my laptop. Or in the kitchen standing up with my laptop on my bench. I tend to write better in open spaces. 

How often do you write a new novel?

I come up with a new story idea once or twice a month. I might write 1000 to 5000 words then stop... then get back to it. I will finish one to two novels a year. 

Do you listen to music while you write?

Yes. I listen to vast variety of music. It all depends on the story I'm working on. I listen to music very possible minute. 

What do you write on? laptop or paper?

I write on my laptop. I'm a fast typeset and can get my ideas down faster than writing on paper. I will sometimes write down small ideas and scenes on paper or on notes on my phone. But I prefer my laptop. 

Is there a special ritual you have before/after you write?

I open up the Pinerest board of whatever story I am working on for inspiration, and help for when I get writers block, or to help with character and setting descriptions.

What do you do to get into the mood to write?

I will watch the Vlog Brothers. Read a book. Go on Pinerest. Other than that, I really just have to be in "the mood" to do so. I need to start making more of a habit of sitting down and writing, rather than just thinking about writing. 

What is always near the place you write?

A laptop wall charger and my headphones. 

Do you have a reward system for your word count?

No. Just the satisfaction of having a decent number of words on my document. 

Is there anything about your writing process that others might not know about?

Nothing interesting. Sometime I will read my characters dialogue aloud to see if it sounds natural. I often have a vague idea of what the end is going to be. But I'm never sure what is going to happen in the middle. 

Again I am not going to tag anyone (I'm to tired to) Writers go a head and do this tag. It is cool.

Resons Why I Love 80's Movies

Hello World.

I am in love with 80's movies. I enjoy them so much to I re-watch them multiple times. I have lost count on how many times I have watched the Back to the Future trilogy. As it continues to be my favorite...even though my siblings are completely sick of it by now. So here are some of the reasons why I love 80's movies. (Through GIFS)

First They have amazing music. Seriously, I love the music from this time period. I was talking to my dad the other day about music from back in the day, to today's music. He made the point that the music from the 70-80-90's have more meaning and morals than a majority of today's music. I love the song by Simple Minds, Don't You forget About Me from The Breakfast Club.

I feel like in just about every one of these movies I have watched so far, there has been generally good characters and character development. Hardly any of these teens are remotely shallow hollow headed. They stand up for themselves. They know what is right. And show good morals through their actions.

I love 80's movies too much... but truthfully they are way better than the movies today

And that it's good sometimes to break out of own skin. To try something new. Breaking free. Talking to new people, and more important, making friends.

They kind of get my feels when it comes to class. 

The romances are sooo cute. But not to sappy.

Last but not least, the language in these films are so beautiful and poetic. Something that you don't hear that much from teens these days. (Disclaimer, there is swearing) I heard someone once complain about how Johns Green teen characters are always speaking to  much like Shakespeare and not like normal teenagers. There has come a point where our speech today is so lazy that we have lost the beauty of using meaningful metaphorical words.
