The Text Tag

I have a pile of tags that have been collecting dust for quite a while now. If it's been ages since you tagged me, don't worry, I probably haven't forgotten, since I draft a post every time I'm tagged. Today, I bring you The Text Tag, courtesy of Emily.


Rules
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them
2. Answer the original 6 text-themed questions
3. Add a typography/word related question of your own, for those that you tagged to answer
4. Tag 6+ bloggers and notify that you tagged them
5. Include these rules in your post

Questions

1. What is your favorite letter of the alphabet?
I and Z
They're fun in lowercase, capital, cursive, and print :)

2.What are three words that you love?
tumultuous, effervescent, and quirk

3. What are three words that you hate?
scab, tete-a-tete (no one has time for this one), and towards

4. If you could create a word, what would it be, and what would it describe?
Tirspuchi- cow.
(My cousin and I created this one while trying to spell Italian words.) 

5. What are your three favorite punctuation marks?
~ & ?

6. What are your three favorite fonts?
I like pretty simple fonts. Lucida Calligraphy is one of my favorites, too, but it wasn't an option on my new computer ;)


Emily's question: What is your worst pet peeve when it comes to writing?
For my own work: when I lose my progress because my computer glitched and didn't save.
From others: the use of cliches. Dialogue or not, no thank you. You're an author! Do something original! Also, when there's a huge cluster of typos at the end of a published work because the editor got lazy :P

My question: What time of day are you most productive in writing?

This is such a fun tag! So I'm not tagging anyone and you can all do it if you want to ;) Or leave the answers in the comments!

    1. Yay! I always use Garamond instead of Times New Roman. I just think it's friendlier :D

      Yes, "scab" is just nasty. The way it sounds, what it means. Like ew. *shudder*

      *goes to check out your blog*

    2. Shudders because scab sounds ugh.

    3. You know, I'm not sure. I've never used Canva. But all three are on Google Docc, Word, and Blogger, I think. *shrug*

  2. I love teh Garamond font! I usually use it when I print stuff because it's supposed to use, like, half the amount of ink that most fonts do. Also, yes scab is nasty. *shudders* our family doesn't like the word "moist." It's very fit for its meaning but it just makes us cringe XP

    1. Yay! Isn't it awesome? I didn't know that, but it makes so much sense. It's definitely less stark than Times New Roman and I think that's why I like it so much. I had to use it for essays I wrote for a class, and I've used it ever since.

      Haha! That's so funny. I certainly don't like any part of me to be moist or to touch things that are. I can see how that would weird some people out ;)

  3. I love this tag. :)

    Tirspuchi. Haha, I like that one. xD

    Oh, is that Emily's last name Drown, too? If so, that would be so funny. :P

    1. Yay! It's very fun, huh?

      Thank you :D I'm not sure why we decided it meant cow . . . ?

      Ha, oops! I guess I mixed up my two Emily followers ;) It makes it worse that both of you have pink flowers for your profile pictures!! It's like dealing with identical twins!

    2. Haha, no worries! :) Yes, as I was commenting one day on A Writer's Faith, my sister pointed over my shoulder and said, "Emily, look, there's another Emily with a pink flower. She might get you guys mixed up." :P

  4. I love this tag too! All your answers were perfect. ;)

    @ Emily Drown: I'm the Emily who nominated Abi, and no, my last name actually isn't Drown. I'm sure why the title says that, but I thought you were doing it at first. :D

    1. Thank you! And thanks for tagging me! I loved all of your answers, too.

      Sorry, I mix y'all up sometimes! And I wasn't supposed to leave the name in the title anyhow--it was just leftover from my draft when I got tagged. :P Everything's good now! :D

      Delete
    2. It's okay! It does make it hard that we both have similar profile pictures. I didn't even notice until now! xD

  5. I like the Garamond font too, I'd have to say my most productive writing time is the morning...I get lazy at night and the afternoon, or after I've had a full day of doing other things. What about you?

    1. Yes, it's the best!

      I can be productive any time that I chisel a period of silence and seclusion for myself. BUT, my best time tends to be when I can't go to sleep from about 11pm-1am. Otherwise, I'm just getting snippets in throughout the day. I have to be up VERY early to beat the crowd in my house!

  6. I love your blog! I really liked reading this post too!

  7. Hm, I haven't been writing a lot recently 'cause I'm lazy as heck. Also, I'm kinda sick but will get better in a few days. I'm productive in the evenings.

I love comments! I won't know you visited or read my post without one, so please leave me one (or two)! But please keep all comments clean and wholesome so I don't have to delete them. :(
