I’m currently on vacation in Europe with la familia, so this week’s Wordy Wednesday is one of our many wonderful interviews and guests posts for the summer!
Please welcome the incredible Rachel!
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am Rachel, I have been reading Julia’s blog for over two years and she is the reason I write and have a blog. My blog is rachelrecaps.wordpress.com and I have been doing it for less than a year. I am a college student at University of Rhode Island and have completed my first year as an environmental science major with a film minor. Ideally I want to save the world through film so documentaries (I like to edit) starting with water purity or plastic/energy alternatives.
What kind of writing do you do?
I write for fun and do not plan on publishing a novel or any large body of work but life takes you in unexpected ways so I really don’t know. I am currently working on my novel that I started in November for NaNoWriMo called Collin and Jade. The first draft is almost done. I think in another 10k words it will be there. I want to finish writing it before I start a new project. I have never written a “novel” completely before so this one should be my first. But writing is rewriting so in like a year or two I may feel good enough about it to show people the entire thing. If you want to read some of the story the first four chapters are on my blog just search Collin and Jade.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
If I could travel anywhere I would want to go back to Ireland, it’s so green and beautiful and the vibe is really chill I would trace my heritage and never leave. Well maybe I would like to visit Scotland occasionally but I loved it so much I do not understand why anyone would want to leave.
Favorite activity outside of reading and writing?
Quidditch (like from Harry Potter, it is a real sport you can look it up.)
Favorite Youtube channel?
VlogBrothers (I have watched all of their videos in under 2 months that is 7 years worth of content 1200+ videos.)
The Hunger Games
Favorite board game?
Favorite language (other than your native one)?
Latin (I took 3 years in high school and really respect it)
Candy Crush (I have run out of levels a few times)(I don’t really eat candy so I know this answer is cheating but it’s honest because I do not eat chocolate or gelatin so that eliminates most of the candies)
Bass Guitar, because I used to play it in a girl band
Thanks for letting me interview you, Rachel! And thanks for reading!
