Hello everyone! It's time for the second half of the Q&A session!! :D Again, thank you all soooo much. Without such awesome followers, I doubt if I would still be blogging. :)
Here's goes!!!! XD
What is your favorite beverage?
DR. PEPPER!!!!!!! Seriously, I love that stuff. Probably not the best thing I could be consuming, but...yeah. And I don't drink *that* much. :P
He. Hehe. Heh. That's hilarious. Mr. Pibb is just NOT the same. XD
Does caffeine affect you?
Hehe, funny question. ;) Sometimes it makes me really goofy and giggly, but that's all. In other words, I can drink a cup of coffee and go to bed no problem. :)
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Interacting with all you amazing bloggers!!! :D Y'all are seriously THE BEST. <3
~ Jesseca You-know-my-last-name
Hmmm. I wonder who this could be... B-)
What have you learned in your year of blogging?
I've learned that sticking to the plan does NOT work for me. Which is why I don't post on certain days, it just doesn't happen that way for me. I've also learned a ton of abbreviations I didn't know before (ex. OTP, BTW, IKR.) I also wouldn't understand words like 'shipping'... ;)
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
*refers to Ashley's question* Getting to know other bloggers, meeting amazing, talented people. It's seriously the best part of it. :-)
Will you be sharing more of your writing with us soon? B-)
I might...and I might not. We'll just have to see, won't we?
Yes, I will be sharing more of my writings soon. Probably this super-crazy-dramatic-the-sky-is-falling short-story I started while we were camping. ;) Are you curious yet? No? Well, here's a teaser picture to help your lacking curiosity...
Any goals for what you want to accomplish during your next year of blogging?
Oooo, yes!!! I want to share more short stories here on the blog, be more consistent in my blogging schedule, and keep my posts/pages/blog more orderly. :)
What do you most enjoy seeing on other blogs?
Stories! And randomness!! And writing challenges!! And excerpts from everyone's everyday lives are always my favorites. :)
Do you think you are crazy?
*snickers* Oh, yes, absolutely. Aren't all writers? ;)
Do you like random weird questions?
Yes, I do. (And the above one is one of my favorites. XD)
What is your favorite thing about other people asking you questions?
Hmm, that's a tough one. The funny part is I usually run from answering questions about myself in person-to-person conversation. Mainly because I stumble over myself a billion times before I finally get out what I want to say (if I ever do). I don't know why, but this is just so different and I enjoy it. :)
*realizes she still hasn't answered the question* Um, okay... One of my favorite thing about this would have to be that I can share things about myself that would be awkward to just say in a conversation. Also, I like how y'all can ask whatever you want, so I can find out what y'all want to know more about. ^_^

What inspired you to start a blog?
Reading other blogs. I know that's a super boring answer, but that's the honest truth of it. :) Reading others' blogs and justing getting a feel of the blogging world made me want to become a blogger myself. :)
What were your original goals?
Share my stories – weekly or more – and to get feedback was my original plan for this blog. Obviously that didn't last long. :P
When did you first begin writing? What was your project?
I first started writing towards the end of 8th grade (spring of 2014). The project was a mystery set in an Amish community, focusing on two girls who find an old letter hidden in the attic. (It was ingeniously titled "The Letter in the Attic". Pfft.) I didn't write in it for long though. Then that fall I started writing fanfictions when I discovered the Circle C writing contest. Everything has just escalated from there. :-)
How did you become a fan of World War II?
I saw a movie. And I'm not even kidding. I saw this adorable-ly sweet, heart-rendingly amazing, make-you-cry good movie and I've been hooked ever since. That's when I started writing my WWII novel (March of 2015) and my infatuation of that era has only increased. :)
Favorite books on the era? Fiction or nonfiction?
*grins at a good excuse to shove some awesome books y'all's way* Hmmm, I think I can come up with some. *strolls to the bookshelves*
A Distant Melody, Where Treetops Glisten, Interrupted, A Christmas Gift for Rose and The Fences Between Us (fiction) and G.I. Joe & Lillie, and Faith Under Fire (nonfiction) are all favorites of mine. Also, I just started reading in The Air War over Europe and I'm really enjoying it. :)
(Also, if you ever have some WWII recommendations, I WILL TAKE THEM.)
Do you enjoy reading fiction or nonfiction most? One of your top favorites of each category?
I enjoy fiction the most for anything I'm reading. I can usually get more from it, though there are some great nonfiction books as well. :) Only one top favorite?? Fiiiinnneee. ;) I'll choose two that I didn't use with the above questions... XD
Fiction: A Cousin's Promise by Wanda Brunstetter. This book has been among my favorites for a loooonnnggg time and probably always will be. :)
Nonfiction: The Battle Plan for Prayer by Stephen and Alex Kendrick (link leads to my review). This is an incredible book about strengthening your prayer life. :D
~ Rebekah Ashleigh
Do you prefer to have long hair or short hair?
Long hair, but not too long. I got my hair cut recently and now it's a few inches below my shoulders. I really like this length. ;-)
Do you like to paint your nails?
Yes, ma'am! I usually just paint my toenails because whenever I do my fingernails it chips out and looks awful (also, if I bite...then I'm eating that stuff. O_o). But I do enjoy it. :) Right now they're a reddish/pinkish coral and grey-blue. :)
What's your favorite animal?
Dogs. :) Always and forever, it's dogs. (Preferably Labrador retrievers. :D) My family has always had dogs, and...yeah. Girls best friend. <3
So far, what has been the best movie you've seen this year?
SUCH A HARD QUESTION! Um, okay. *clears throat* I honesty don't think I can pick one. Choosing between God's Not Dead 2, Return to the Hiding Place, 23 Blast, and The Redemption of Henry Myers is just. too. impossible. (In other words, all of those are best movies. :))
What's your favorite winter activity?
Probably snow tubing. :) Or sledding. I love just about any activity that involves snow. :D
What's your middle name?
For Internet safety and all that, I can't answer this one. But I will tell you it starts with an L and y'all can guess. ;)
What state do you live in?
North Carolina :)
Have you ever traveled out of the country? If so, where?
No, I have not. Though I would love to! :D I plan to travel the world one day... *dreamy sigh* What, don't you believe me?
What is the #1 book series you would recommend?
Uhhhhhhh. Wow. Another hard question... I would have to say the A Life of Faith: Kathleen Mckenzie books by Tracy Leinginger Craven. They're such great books with the strongest faith themes I've read. :)
If you were going to be executed, what method would you choose?
Oh dear. That's a scary thought. Um, I don't know; I've never given it much thought. Whatever is quickest and painless-est. What about freezing to death? I've heard that you just sort of go to sleep... I don't like being cold, but I'd rather be cold than hot. (So I don't want to die in a burning building.) So. Yeah. I really don't know. ;)
What inspired you to begin blogging?
*refers to Bethany's question* Reading other blogs. Seriously. :)
~ Hosanna Emily
Are you going to publish your writings one day?!? Is this still a distant dream?
I would LOVE to publish my writings one day!! :) Don't know when it will happen though so, yes, it's still a dream. :P
What are you currently working on?
Lots of things? Okay, not quite. ;) Most faithfully, I'm working on my WWII novel, War Tears. (Summary is under the 'writings' page.) It's a special story to me and...Ahhh, I just love it! *hugs the characters* I'm so pleased with how it's coming along too. :)

Awesome idea Faith :D I was wondering what your favorite Bible verse is and What your favorite Bible character/story is and why?
My favorite Bible verse has been 1 Peter 5:7 for a loooong time. I also really love Isaiah 40:31 and John 16:33. :)
My favorite Bible story is Ruth...or the Resurrection...or the prodigal son...or... ;) Ehehe. Get the picture? Aside from those already mentioned (and Jesus ^_^), my favorite Bible character is David. :)
I hope y'all enjoyed reading this two-part Q&A as much as I enjoyed writing it up! :D
Thank you all so much for being so faithful to read my blog and comment with your thoughts. :) Y'all are seriously the best! <3 I couldn't ask for better blogging pals. :) These two words seem so insignificant, but: THANK YOU!!
