Aspiring Bloggers 02: Adelaide

Hi Adelaide! Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
Hey there! Well, to start with, I'm in love with the Lord. Everything starts there! I'm a self-proclaimed introvert who somehow loves people at the same time, and I'm a geek about books, movies, etc. My blog is kind of a collection of those things.

Why did you decide to start a blog?
Mainly because I love writing, and also because I love internet people. :-)

What is the story behind your blog's name?
I wish I had some awesome back-story, but I don't. It's based off of the song Willow by Jasmine Thompson.
How would you describe your blogging style?
ADD Golden Retriever who forgets to do her homework most nights?

Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why? 
One blogger I really admire is Rachelle down at Beloved Bluebird ( She has such a sweet, simple style of blogging, and I adore it.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
Mmm, I love that question. I suppose I've always wanted to be an author, or a songwriter.
You are an amazing writer and it shines through your blog. How do you stay inspired when the dreaded writer's block attacks?
Aw, thanks! I mainly try to work on writing one word at a time. I don't look at my Word Count, I don't panic about plot holes (more like plot caverns,) I simply focus on the next word and the next sentence. By the time I've churned out some crummy ones, I get swept back into the story and am able to get my bearings.

 Do you have any hidden talents?
 Well, my friends call me the Screamer of Screams, because I scream really loudly when stuff freaks me out. And for some reason I'm really good at opening bottles.

What's something interesting that your readers might not know about you/your life?
Right now I'm sitting in my sweatpants and a t-shirt that is too big, I had ice cream right after breakfast, and I need to take a shower. Life is good! (Was that interesting?)
On your blog, you shared that you and your family run a Christian camp. That is so cool! What is that like?
Oh goodness, it's the most brilliant thing on Earth. It's a lot of hard work, mountains of files and papers, and some sleepless nights, but I wouldn't want to do anything else!

Thanks Adelaide! It was so fun to learn a little more about you!
