The important thing is not to stop questioning. – Albert Einstein
There are so many book tag in the blogging world. I’ve done quite a few of them. They are great for when I want something that is fairly quick and easy. It is always nice when I am running short on time in order to write a blog post and I find a great book tag to do.
There are so many of them out there.
Some of them are themed. I’ve seen an Avengers one (I should do it) and a Narnian one (which I have done).
The trouble is that these all have to do with books that are already published.
There are quite a few bloggers who also write their own stories. And they are published or hope one day to be published.
I write and sometimes I think it would be fun to do a writing tag, but I have only been able to find one and I have already done it.
So, today I thought that I would see if I could come up with a writing tag of my own.
And to make it even funner I’m going to use a favorite series to come up with the questions.
If you end up using this tag it seems like this would work better if you use a single story or series. Or if you wanted to completely confuse the reader you could use a different story for each of the questions.
Now, I guess I should get started with the actual writing tag. And we will see how it goes.
For this I am using the story that I wrote for last Camp NaNoWriMo in July, and its working title is ‘Unexplainable.’ I’m going to try not to spoil any big plot points since I am hoping one day to publish it, although it needs a lot of work before I can really even think about that.
Narnia – Where is your story set?
This story is set in an alternate version of our world. The only real difference between it and ours is that it has superhumans.
More specifically the story is set in a large American city either New York or LA. Originally I was thinking New York, but that seems like where every single superhero is, so I might just try something new and different.
The Magician’s Nephew – How did you come up with the idea for the story?
Ever since I started really watching Marvel movies I wanted to write a superhero story of my own.
The idea that I used for this story started to come to me soon after I did an acting activity with some of my friends, however it did evolve quite a bit.
And then I did not actually start to write it until about a year after I had the idea.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe – How do your characters meet?
Several of them are friends before the story actually begins, but all the characters end up meeting at a party and that is when they first end up working together as a superhero team.
The Horse and His Boy – Are there any animals in your story?
No, there are not.
And this is something that should be remedied because I would have thought that at least one of my characters would have had a pet.
Prince Caspian – What one of your characters turned out different than you expected?
I guess the villain actually. I imagined her a lot more evil then she turned out. That is not to say that she is not evil, it is simply that she turned out differently than I expected.
Her whole backstory ended up being different than I originally expected.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – What is one of your character’s personal quest?
All the characters have a quest that they have gotten pulled into, and then they each have their own personal quests.
Jared’s personal quest is to help people, especially children. It’s really slightly more complicated than that, but since I don’t feel like writing several hundred words about it what I have already written will work.
The Silver Chair – Who is the villain?
The villain of this story is an Amazon sorceress named Amarantha Nikomache.
The Last Battle – Does your story end like you expected it to?
Not quite, but similar to what I expected. There was one thing that I did not realize would have to happen until I actually started to write it, and then I knew that it had to happen although I still wish that it had been avoidable.
Also, one of the characters played a bigger role than I was expecting.
Yes, I know that I am being very cryptic in answering this question, but I really don’t want to spoil too much.
The Pevensies – Friend or sibling group?
In this story my favorite friend group is Alice, Mia, and Lalita. They look out for each other, and tend to act more like siblings then friends.
Reepicheep – Is there magic in your story? If so what kind?
There certainly is a kind of magic in this story, although it is not exactly what I traditionally think of as magic.
There are superhumans.
I hope you found this interesting! I would love if anyone wants to use this tag. And if you do I would love to read your post of it, so if you end up using it, it would be great if you would comment a link to the post.
