Your WIP in Gifs Tag!

When Michelle @The Writing Hufflepuff published her original Your WIP in Gifs Tag, I was keeping my fingers crossed that she had tagged me – AND SHE DID! As you can see, I am really excited already. I love talking about Arcadia (even though I should probably channel that excitement to actually write some more) and while this isn’t exactly easy, I imagine it to be a whole lot of fun!

THE RULES

💛 Thank the person who tagged you
💛 Credit the creator of this tag (Michelle!) and link back to this post so she can find out allll about your WIPs!
💛 Try to limit the amount of gifs you use per question – I’d say maybe stick to five or less but I’m not the boss of you

THE QUESTIONS

Sum up your WIP in 4 gifs!

 

This looks hella bleak … it’s not all bleak?

Time to introduce your main characters!

Because there are so many characters, I am going to try and do ONE gif per person. Wish me luck!

Kasia

This, in my humble opinion, makes a lot of sense if you’ve read anything about her. My uncoordinated little wolf girl.

Dyson

I imagine this is Dyson on the outside.
And this is Dyson on the inside. *already failed at just using one gif*

Georgie

My favourite witchy flirt!

Findlay

Always there for the others. I don’t think anyone has EVER asked him what he wanted. Or maybe one person has … but Spoilers …

Leo

That’s definitely his inner monologue during the entire time he has been in Arcadia.

How would your main character react in a crisis?

Kasia would definitely have troubles hiding her apparent panic.
And Dyson would just play it cool, as per usual.

If you were to meet your main characters, how would you react?

I love all my babies so much, I’d be an emotional wreck.
And then I’d want Dyson all to myself. (Which would never actually work, but he is just such a perfect boyfriend …)

And if you were to meet your antagonist?

#accurate

Is there any romance in your WIP? How would you sum it up in gifs?

Kas and Dyson 5ever! (All of the chosen visuals are from before they were tragically separated.)

*Dyson is by far the better cook in this relationship*

How do other characters feel about this ship?

They are very approving. I mean, there’s a lot at stake here.

How do you want people to react to reading your WIP?

 

 

I TAG THEE

How did you like this tag? Would you read Arcadia? If you have already, do you think my gifs were fitting? Let’s chat!

  1. Ahhh Kat I love your gifs so much!! This just reminds me that I need to read Arcadia on Wattpad because?? THIS ALL SOUNDS SO EXCITING Your characters sound like so much fun though those first gifs really make me worried haha. Also I love that you’d just want to steal Dyson hahaha (poor Kasia though haha)

  2. Hello Kat! Thank you for the tag! They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I guess a GIF would be worth ten thousand? 😀
    I liked learning more about your story and your characters through the GIFs! I think I can relate to Dyson the most 🙂 That is awesome that your story is on Wattpad. Your cover is lovely 🙂 How do you find Wattpad so far? I have been considering putting my novel on there for a loooong time (but keep having cold feet hahaha :’) )

    • Hey Sophie! I am so glad you like the tag 🙂
      I really like having my story up on wattpad. It feels like a pretty safe option, because you cannot just copy the text from the stories that are online. And I have gotten really good feedback. The only thing that annoys me a little is that the app sometimes glitches and doesn’t portray the entire chapter, but it happens rarely. I am sure people would love to read at least a couple sample chapters if you don’t want to put up the entire story.

      • That’s great to hear your thoughts about Wattpad! I am thinking about putting my story up there, however I’m not too sure if I have time to get involved in the community there.. Do you find that it takes a lot of time out of your day?

      • Honestly … I am rarely ever on wattpad myself, unless a friend tells me they have a story there. So, when someone who didn’t come from my blog finds Arcadia,I am always pleasantly surprised.

  4. YOU MADE PERFECT CHOICES, Kat. I LOVE IT, I really love love love love this post so, so much – and it makes me want to read moreeeeeeeee of Arcadia. But no pressure, I promise, hahaha. I love that Dyson will play it cool whenever there’s a crisis, I would most definitely be very much like Kasia in that kind of situation haha. And your gifs about your antagonist, HAHAHAHA but like, you’re really pretty, hahahaha I love it 😛
    Fantastic post! It’s always great to see you talking about your WIP ❤

  5. Oh thanks so much for the tag Kat. This seems like such a fun one and I really can’t wait to get started (I’m already trying to think of the perfect gifs I can use for each question).
    Honestly seeing the gifs you’ve picked has made me want to read your WIP and read more about your WIP! I love the gif you picked for Leo’s character, and the ones you chose for Dyson and Kasia’s relationship has kind of made me low-key ship them myself as well!
    Great post, and again thanks so much for the tag! 😀 ❤

    • Hahaha Dyson IS a vacuum cleaner, but it’s ALSO a name 😛
      Yeah, I have set the standards for this story way too high. The current wattpad version definitely isn’t on par with it, but maybe I can actually make the finished and polished version that. At least I hope so. And illustrations, wow … you are putting me to work there haha

    • Thank you so much! It really means a lot to me. It is still a work in progress, so I hope you’ll forgive some mishaps. It’s honestly the first draft and I am wondering more often than not why I am crazy enough to share it with the world. But feedback keeps me motivated. So, if you find the time, I really hope to hear back from you after you read a chapter or two, but NO PRESSURE!!!
      And I’d love to read or more accurately look at gifs about your WIP!

  6. hehehe I love all the gifs!! Your summary gifs are just great!! hahahaha your gifs for Kasia and Dyson are brilliant!! hehehe I love that you’d have a positive reaction to meeting your babies (this may sound weird out of context- it just so happens I was having a conversation with my friend the other day about how many bad things we’ve done to our characters and I realised that most of them would want to kill me- in fact, one definitely would, so if I had a gif it’d be running in the opposite direction 😉 ) hahahah love the me on my way to stealing your man gif!! Yeah my antagonists would kill me too. Aww your gifs for the romance are so cute!! And there are definitely all those reactions to your work (and I’ve only read the first few chapters!) Wonderful post!! laughed so much!

  7. I love all your gif choices, they are perfect and they made me want to read Arcadia even more (as a matter of fact, I’m starting it tonight! I’m very determined to read as many chapters as possible and I’ll probably live text you through it! I’m so excited, omg, all the characters seem so amazing, what you revealed about the plot in this post sounds absolutely exciting. Yeah, I’ll just leave now and get some reading done.

    • OMG! Thank you so much, Marta!! ❤ I am awaiting your reactions in my DMs then? I am scared that you might not like it, but at the same time I want you to know that you can tell me any kind of feedback you might have. But I really do hope you like it!! ❤
