- If you could meet any person, be they dead or alive, fictional or real, who would it be (your own characters excluded)?
Okay, dead would be creepy…lol…so we are going to pick a fictional or very alive person!!!!
Okay, for real (alive) people probably S. D. Smith, Andrew Peterson, Chuck Black, Jennifer Nielsen, or our friends Saraina and Abbi…yeah they’re our friends but we’ve never met in person and we sooo want to!!! And of course, we’d like to meet Issabelle and Joelle and just pretty much everyone reading this…hahaha…
Fictional….hmm…how about all our favorite characters from all our favorite movies and books…and don’t even get us started on that list because it would take longer than the quotes…lol…
- What’s your favorite and least favorite part about writing?
Sheesh, hard one…. Fav part, when we actually have ideas!!! Lol…character and world-building when the words fly from our fingers…
Least favorite part…when we have no ideas and writing feels like pulling teeth…hahaha….we are so procrastinating and not writing right now…lol….
- If you could live as any person for one day, who would it be?
Okay, this is kind of a creepy question…lol…we like being us…also you never know what someone else is dealing with, going through, been through, about to go through, ect….so we don’t really want to answer this….lol…how about each other and we just switch places for the day…hahaha….
- Why are you writing/blogging?
Oh, blogging is easy…we read if you want to be a successful writer you needed a blog, so here we are!
Writing…harder…well, we are writing to share our experiences and our belief that God is good no matter what. We may not see His plan behind everything but it’s there! We want to share that with others while also delivering stories that are enjoyable, fun, and encouraging! Words have the power to change people, so we need more that encourage people to be the better, stronger, braver versions of themselves.
That got long…lol…
- Why did you start writing/blogging?
See above answer for blogging….
Okay, writing…really embarrassing and you can actually find that info on our about page as well…we were playing with some…(how do we say this without sounding weird) horse figure things…and our dad told us we should write down the story we were playing…so we did! He had been telling us we should write since he overheard a bedtime story Kayti was telling and Rissy and Jaidie were of course adding too and helping with. So we started writing down our stories….and found we liked it and now that’s what we do….come up with crazy stories and write them down before they drive us insane by bouncing around our heads…lol…
- What’s your current WIP about (if you have one)?
Okay, we had to google WIP…and then we saw what it was and were like duh, you so dumb Sisters Three…lol…So, our current WIP…hmmm…being super secretive. We have a lot…so we’ll just give a very vague idea of the ones we are working on together…
One’s a series about a boy who is drafted into the army and has to fight dragons and strange beast-like men…it’s fun, has a hilarious boy with an accent, and a lot of plot twists…(being so vague here…)
Another is a Cinderella retelling, that’s all we are disclosing…
And the third is about a girl and an Elven boy, actually two elven boys an elven girl and a girl, and a bunch of other side creatures….a magical kingdom, a song, and a portal to another world….yeah…that’s enough of that…
Anyway, hope you liked those totally unsatisfactory peeks! Lol…It’s gonna be a surprise when we are ready to publish!!!
- If you could have one superpower, what would it be? (Yes, I stole this from Sisters Three. But it’s a great question!!)
Yay!!! You liked our question!!! We so wanted to answer this one anyway!!!
Okay, Kayti is going with invisibility…that would be soo nice…then you could read in peace…lol…all you would see would be a floating book and blue glasses…hahaha….that image is hilarious!!!
Jaidie said a Shape-Shifter…if that counts as a superpower…lol…never mind we made this question it so counts!!!!
Rissy is currently thinking, give her a moment…..okay, it’s a hard decision…she gonna go with the ability to take anyone else superpower…that way if she saw a cool one she could take it, then when she got bored she could take a new one…lol….
We gonna cheat and leave and an open invitation and let you guys pick eleven of the twenty-two questions listed above…lol….
Have a great day! God Bless!
