11 questions

Of all the books you've ever read, who is your favorite character? - Um. Wow. I have absolutely no idea. Aslan, from Chronicles of Narnia? Or maybe Edmund, Caspian, or Lucy? Perhaps Bigwig, from Watership Down? Or Ron and Dumbledore from Harry Potter?
Yeah. I'm also very indecisive.

2. If you could have any animal for a pet, what would it be? - A big friendly dog. Is that boring?

3. Favorite candy? - Bubblegum.

4. What chore do you absolutely HATE doing? - Washing dishes.

5. If you could change your name, what would you change it to? - Ember, I think. Something uncommon.
6. What's your biggest dream, attainable or not? - Right now, my biggest dream is to make it to the OYAN Summer Workshops 2013.

7. If your life had a theme song, what would it be? - I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz

8. What was the last experience you had that made you a stronger person? - That period of soul-searching that I talk about here.

9. If you were a Star Wars character, who would you be? - Probably Luke Skywalker. I ask too many questions.

10. Pop tarts or twinkies? - Pop tarts all the way. ♥ Twinkies are gross.

11. What was the title of the first piece of writing you created? - I have no idea. The first one I remember creating was called "Storm," I think. It involved rain clouds imprisoning the sun and my happiness. (!) I wrote it when I was 7. Or maybe 9. Not sure.
