Pearl: I told my Dad about my recent short story WIP “101 Aches” and he started suggesting things, and then as I told him more he was like “Stop! You’re gonna make me cry!” (Which usually means it must be good. So I was like “Cool!” :D)

Want to be published?
Anna: Definitely. 🙂 Working toward this as a goal in the near future, Lord willing!

Pearl: Yas. That would be sooo cool! 😀

Indie or Traditional?
Anna: Indie mostly, but definitely would be cool to get specific ones of my Middle Grade stories traditionally published so they’re more out there. 😀

Pearl: Same here! ^^

Wildest goal?

 

 


Anna: LOL I honestly don’t know… play Eponine on Broadway? Become a New York Times bestseller? See my novel made into a movie by Walden Media (because they do sooo well at making movies of books!) ? Adopt 20 babies?

Pearl: ???? (That’s my brain wondering what in the world my wildest goal is). Hmm… I would love to live in a farmhouse on a farm (obviously on a farm :P) and have a cool family and own lots of Dexter cows and ten dogs and those lovely kittens that hang out at milking time. Get to act in a Christian movie. Train amazing service dogs. Publish four billion good books.

    2. AW! ❤ this comment. 🙂
      Not at all crazy in my opinion, lady, start driving here this minute plz!! Just be warned… we've got some pretty crazy fast sprinters in the area. 😛 Sometimes we're surprised their keyboards don't go up in smoke! 😮 lol
      Thanks! I like my T too. 🙂
      Wow, no way?!! High five, fellow Banana-with-chocolate-chip-eyes! haha
      Yes, I shall definitely let you know "when" I get to play Eponine on Broadway. 😉

  2. Now this was one fun post! I must say, Pearl, I don’t think your first wild goal is any too wild =) Probably because it is nearly the same here — on a farm, in a farmhouse with a HUGE wrap-around porch, in the middle of nowhere, on hundreds of acres (what can this introvert say? No people!), complete with Dexter cows (’cause the milk!), chickens, pigs, gardens, and cats…..but maybe only one dog. I’m not such a big dog person 😀

    I seriously had way too much fun reading this post — it’s too late here for the hilarity experienced 😀

    1. So glad you enjoyed, Kaitlyn!
      Hey, you have the same goal as me?! COOL!
      That does sound lovely. ❤ Ahhh! I forgot to mention the wrap around porch!! YES, dexter cows!!
      Aw, that's cool. Just one dog to keep the grizzly bears away, right? 🙂

      Well, good! We had way too much fun making it!! Happy it made you laugh! Oh dear, hope you're not TOO tired. XD

    2. So happy you liked this post, Kaitlyn! XD I’ll come visit you in your lovely farmhouse and write/read in random trees around the property and go exploring with your one dog and milk your cows for you. 😉 😛

  3. This is a great tag! (I LOVE the song “Even If” and I named it the theme song of my current WIP.) 🙂

    Eye color? Brown. Wildest dream? Train service dogs, possibly guide dogs, publish lots of books, and visit Italy. Asking too much???

    1. Isn’t it?! I hereby tag you, informally! 😀
      YES it’s a great song! ❤ Ooh that's neat!! What is your WIP about?
      I don't think those goals are asking too much, love em!! And I wanna do them toooo!! XD

      1. My WIP is a fantasy about a young woman and her family who are arrested for their faith, split up, and told they must deny what they believe in order to become part of society. The story is basically her journey to really discovering what she believes and what it will affect in her life while she tries to find the rest of her family. (Formal synopsis is on my blog somewhere.) 🙂

    2. Oh wow, that’s got to be an amazing WIP then! 😮 ❤
      Love your not-so-wild wildest dreams!! 😉 You know what I forgot to include in mine that I would love to do someday?? Owning a bookstore!
      Thanks so much for commenting, Hannah!

  4. What a fun post! You guys are awesome!

    My eyes are usually green. 🙂 And my wildest goal???? Right now… I suppose, it’s to get published. It seems so impossible to me, but I know God can totally do it! It’s just the believing part. The waiting, the polishing, the imagining…It’s hard not to just glare at your computer and tell yourself your it’s impossible! But I’m going, and trying to be patient and trust. You guys are an encouragement to me!

    A dreamer,
    Amanda

    P.S And thanks for tagging me!

    1. Thank you thank you, Amanda!
      Aw, green eyes are really pretty!
      That’s a wonderful goal!! And I think you’ll totally do it someday!! Yeah, it gets hard sometimes. I’ve felt like glaring at my writing before too (wait, I think I actually have XD). Just keep writing, just keep trusting God (okay, now I’m hearing Dory in my head, saying “Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!”).
      I’m soo glad we’re an encouragement to you. 😀 😀 Your comment was an encouragement to me too!!
      You’re welcome! Looking forward to your answers. 🙂

      1. Thank you Pearl! Dark brown eyes are really pretty too. 😊 (Expressing dark brown eyes, as chocolate chip eyes, is a super fun way to say it!!) Thank you so much for encouraging me!! (When I was younger I think I thought Dory was crazy in a way. XD) I hope you aren’t glaring at your writing too often; God’s got us! And He gifted us for a purpose. 😊

  5. Such a cool post!! I love how you guys always have lots of pictures…and I FINALLY figured out which of you is Pearl and which is Anna (love the pronunciation…much better than the normal way).
    I’ve been super busy lately, so I’m only now getting around to this…sadness.
    Thanks for the tag and I loved reading!!!

    1. Thanks, Greta! 😀 I love documenting everything, and hey, ya never know when you might need weird behind-the-scenes pics, ammi right?
      Oh haha we never did say who was who, did we?!! Never thought of that! lol Maybe we should quiz our followers to see if the others have figured it out too… 😉 😛 (aw thx! I love how unique my name is… except when I’m introducing myself to people since they always mishear it. XD)
      Um, lol. I’m just now getting back to comments so zero worries, girl!
      Thanks so much for commenting!
