About Me

Hi! I’m Lana, a young writer, singer and a Christian, as well as a couple of other things. I’ve been writing since I can remember, but I really began writing novels in 2013, when I was introduced to NaNoWriMo, and basically sold my soul to the writing demons. My life is now consumed by thinking about writing, talking about writing, reading writing, and actually writing.

I’ve also been singing since I can remember, as well as playing the piano, but I’ve been doing less of the latter and more of the former ever since I took my first choir class in school. I’ve been in school choirs, church choirs, and several other choirs since then. My favorite part of singing in choirs is conveying the message of the song to the audience. I believe that words are some of the most powerful things in the world, but words along with music have the ability to change people in a single instant.

I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), and I love my religion. Feel free to ask me any questions, or go to mormon.org if you want to learn more. I love to learn about other people’s religions and see what they believe, so it’d be great to have a discussion about it with you.

So that’s me! (Although, it doesn’t quite do my weird sense of humor justice, but that’s okay, you’ll find out about that soon enough, heh.)

      Thanks! I’ve been nominated three times (though I think you were the first to do so, I was just gone and didn’t notice) so I’m going to answer all 33 questions, which’ll be fun…

        Interesting! I wonder if any of them will be different ….


      • Kellyn Roth February 17, 2016 / 9:59 PM

        I mean … the same. XD


      • Lana February 18, 2016 / 7:04 PM

        Hehe, no problem. And I think a couple of them will be similar, but I don’t know if any are actually the same…I haven’t read through all of them yet though, so I don’t know.

        It is! I didn’t think it was gonna be that hard. XD


      • Lana March 22, 2016 / 5:56 PM

        Hehe. Hopefully I can actually finish it and post it at some point… I’ve only done Monday so far, and I’m not even sure that I like the description of it anyway.

        I should just tag random people and stop torturing you. 😉


      • Lana June 27, 2016 / 3:59 PM

        No no no it’s fine I’m just slowly drowning…

        Well, not really. I’m going to do all my blog tags this week so it’ll be fine and then you can tag me some more and I can procrastinate them again…

        Yeah, but I will…with great blogs comes great responsibility.

    I just started NanoWriMo, seems interesting.


  3. Aiden July 11, 2016 / 6:09 PM

    I just started NaNoWriMo, I’m a little confused.


    • Lana July 11, 2016 / 6:42 PM

      Hi, and awesome! NaNoWriMo is great. What are you confused about?


      • Aiden July 12, 2016 / 4:50 AM

        I’m confused about how NanoWriMo works.


      • Lana July 12, 2016 / 10:45 AM

        Well, during November, you choose a word count goal for your novel that you want to reach (the general goal is 50,000 words in a month, but if you’re under 18 on the Young Writers Program you can change that to whatever you think will be good for you). Then at the beginning of November, you start writing a new novel and try to write that many words in it.

        There’s also Camp NaNoWriMo which is basically the same, except that it happens in April and July, you can do projects besides novels (like screenwriting or revisions or poetry), and you can have a word count goal lower than 50,000 regardless of age.

        Does that make sense? If you have more questions I’d be more than happy to answer them! Also, here’s a link to all the websites I mentioned:

        NaNoWriMo (ages 13+): http://www.nanowrimo.org
        Camp NaNoWriMo (ages 13+ & same username/account as the site above): http://www.campnanowrimo.org
        Young Writers Program (ages under 18): http://www.ywp.nanowrimo.org

    Ok, thanks for the help.

    It’s only in April, November and July right


    • Lana July 16, 2016 / 5:34 PM

      Yep, that’s right. In between months, a lot of people revise the novels that they’ve written, though I usually just end up starting new novels…


    • Lana August 20, 2016 / 12:32 PM

      Ooh, it sounds fun! I will definitely think about it, especially since right now I’m at a lack for what advice-y things to write…maybe I shall do a post with one of these if I can choose something to write it about. Any suggestions?


    • Lana August 20, 2016 / 12:22 PM

      I’m going to try to do it! Hopefully soon-ish, since I have been working on characters recently.


      • Fin Pym August 20, 2016 / 12:49 PM

        Yay! Looking forward to it.


    • Lana December 24, 2016 / 4:48 PM

      Thanks, Kit! I hope I don’t procrastinate on this…eep.

    • Lana August 24, 2017 / 5:00 PM

      Hi, Kiya, and thank you! I love your name, by the way. Is it from something?

      And thank you for the nomination! I’m not sure if I’ll do it since I haven’t done any tags in a while, but I’ll definitely consider it! 😀


  8. Julia @Lit Aflame December 12, 2018 / 3:27 PM

    Hi Lana! I had some questions about your religion, but couldn’t find any contact info, so could you email me at litaflame.blog@gmail.com and we can talk? Thanks!


    • Lana December 12, 2018 / 11:22 PM
