Short Pieces Day 2 Prompt

Hey-o all!
(On an unrelated side note, does anyone know where "hey-o" comes from? Uglies? The Safe Lands trilogy? A Time to Die? Did I even spell it right?)
(End unrelated side note)

So I'm participating in a week of prompts and short stories. The prompt for day one can be found here. And (hopefully) I'll be putting up my short story from it later today. You can find details about the week here!

Anywho, here's the prompt I'm giving!

It burned her hand, and she flung it as far away from her as she could.

The word limit is 5,000 max, but it can be as short as you'd like! Have fun!

Tally ho! (No worries, I know what that one's from ;)

Character Interview: Izzy

So the other day, Rachael over at The Art of Writing for Him interviewed my character Liam (From my WIP Where Loyalties Lie) and today I got to interview her character Izzy from her novel Awaken the Deliverer!
Picture found on Pinterest

What’s your favorite color?
Probably black. *grins*

What is it like being the princess of Marilla?
It’s definitely an interesting experience, I won’t say that it’s fun, not all of the time anyway. 

What is your favorite part about being the princess of Marilla?
Hmm, *squints eyes in concentration* I am going to have to say the food. 

If you could spend an entire day doing anything you wanted, what would you choose to do?
I would sit in my room all alone and eat cake. Or go visit with Kiera, or…*trails off*

What would you say is your best trait?
*flashes a grin* I think my sharpness!

Your worst?
Ehhh, um, probably my stubbornness. 

If you had to make a guess, how would you think you’ll meet your future husband?
At some party my Dad threw together! Yup, that’s it.  

Thanks for coming, Izzy! :D

Help?

Hullo everyone!
So, one of the things I've heard is that people would like to see more of my writing on my blog.
The thing is... Although I'm motivated to write right now, I can't for the life of me come up with an idea.
So I'm putting this out here: Give me a prompt, and I'll do my best to write a story!
They'll probably be flash fiction legnth, 1000 words max (though this isn't set in stone), and the prompts can be any type you want. Songs, phrases, images, throw 'em at me! :)

(Just keep them clean, ok? Thanks :)

In with the New Year, Out with the Old

Annum novum faustem felicem- thus I bid thee cheer!
Annum novum, faustem felicem- in the coming year!
*grins*
So, it's 2016. How did that happen, again? I mean, I could've sworn it was just Christmas Eve 2012 and I and my friends were discussing whether or not the world was actually going to end. (The majority of us were right ;)

Anyway, time to take a look back.
*trumpets blare*

Let's start with some numbers, shall we?
~In April 2015, I started Flights from the Aerie
~Since then, I have participated in 7 Monday's Minute Challenges, 4 Character Encounters, and a number of blog tours and cover reveals.
~I've had 3,249 pageviews, 10 followers through Google Friend Connect, and an unknown number more by email. Shoutout to all of you- You guys are awesome!! Thank you so much!!
~In July 2015, I did Camp NaNoWriMo for the first time, and got 15,005 words.
~In November 2015, I did regular NaNoWriMo for the first time, and got to 19,843 words, thanks to my AMAZING writing buddies. *virtual hugs all of you*
~And in 2015, I read & recorded 155 books on Goodreads.

Biggest memories of 2015:
~Story Character Scenes and Chats on the Jorum :)
~A Time to Die and A Time to Speak by Nadine Brandes- Oh those endings!! However will I wait until next fall?!
~NaNoWriMo!

~The Rizkaland Legends by Kendra E. Ardnek
~Twinepathy by C.B. Cook
~Watermelon gum- Because I finally got my braces off :)
~And I got a job at my town's library! *squeals*

Now, how about a look forward? 
In 2016, I hope to...
~Edit Where Loyalties Lie, send it out to beta-readers, and maybe get it published before the year is out? Maybe? :)
~Put up a new story of mine (Captains of the Sky) as a serial story here on my blog
~Get back on top of things after being sick a lot in 2015
~Read the Bible cover to cover
~Read 200 books
~Post more of my writing on my blog 

And lastly, (but NOT leastly!) a couple of shoutouts (in no particular order):
Patience Bledsoe
And all my awesome friends who constantly put up with my crazyness :)
You guys are AMAZING!! Thank you for walking through this year with me!

So here's to 2016!
