I’m now in Europe (or, you know, will be at the time this post goes up)–which means this week’s Wordy Wednesday is our first of many wonderful interviews and guests posts for the summer!
Please welcome my fabulous critique partner and friend, Kira Budge!
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a sophomore at BYU-Idaho studying English: Creative Writing and a novelist, primarily of YA fantasy. Additionally, I’m the Associate Online Administrator of Ch1Con, a writing conference for teens. I play cello, foster kittens, and obsess over British TV in my spare time.
What kind of writing do you do?
Mostly YA fantasy novels, though they tend to straddle the line towards sci-fi. I write other stuff too, but nothing as seriously as that.
What project(s) are you currently working on?
I’m finishing up edits on What It Takes to Deal, a YA contemp, to prepare it to be sent out to agents.
What are you studying at college?
As seen le above, I’m an English: Creative Writing major! Because useful.
Any fun summer plans?
I WENT TO CH1CON HECK YESSES.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Britain. All of the Britain.
What’s your favorite kind of book?
I have lots of kinds of favorite books, but I tend to have a thing for YA sci-fi in particular, or at least I have recently.
The food kind.
More chocolate. (Sorry Jules.)
Favorite activity outside of reading and writing?
Ummmmm… watching TV? Being generally useless?
Snow White and the Huntsman.
Favorite TV show?
Favorite Youtube channel?
Pemberley Digital, but I love so so many more!
This question is an unfair one, at any and all times. It’s a tie between Harry Potter and the Hunger Games. It always is.
I don’t know about favorite, but the one I apparently go to the most is Goodreads.
Favorite board game?
Ew. Board games.
Favorite language (other than your native one)?
Spanish? Latin? One of those.
Apple. Or cherry. Or blueberry. Or chocolate.
CELLO. YES. I PLAY CELLO.
Coffee or tea?
Neither. I’m Mormon. *smiles cheesily*
Ice cream or froyo?
BOTH. (Probably froyo, though, for real.)
Movie or TV show?
Morning or night?
City or country?
Small town. Those other places are icky.
Cat or dog?
Rain or shine?
Rain. Sun hurts my eyes.
Camp or hotel?
Stay in or go out?
Stay in all of the times.
Casual or fancy?
…. either. Depending on the situation. I like to do both of them.
Edward or Jacob? (Kidding.)
I see your kidding and raise you a TEAM EDWARD for the books and TEAM WHY DO THESE MOVIES EXIST LAUTNER IS SO MUCH HOTTER for the movies.
Hot or cold?
Hot. I am allergic to cold.
Handwrite or type?
No one in potato can read my handwriting, not even me. Type.
Paperback or hardcover?
I think paperback. But I’ve never actually thought about this question before. Hmm! Good one, Jules!
