The Milestones Write Tag

I haven’t done one of my infamous Write Tags in while and I know that at least some of my fellow writers on the blogosphere like doing them quite a bit. So this is your opportunity to explore your characters a bit more in depth, as I will do with my current WIP by answering the questions about Milestones as well. I miss talking about Arcadia (in case you are new to the blog – welcome! All the infos on Arcadia can be found here), because it’s my baby and I still have so much story to tell, but I know that the updates have been scarce. I just want you to know that you have all been amazingly helpful with your lovely feedback and reactions on Twitter and Wattpad. It’s such a motivation for me and seeing the number of views go up to 700 made my heart sing. There’s more coming soon – I promise!

RULES

  • Thank the person who tagged you but also link back to the original post(I want to see all your lovely answers, people!)
  • Provide a short description of your WIP/story!
    Kasia and Dyson have known each other their entire lives, their paths intertwining at every crossroad. So forgetting he ever existed doesn’t make any sense to Kasia and neither does finding out about the magical beings that took him away from her. Now, with the help of some allies with motives of their own, she will do everything she can to get him back, not knowing if either one of them will ever be the same after all is said and done.
    You can check out this post to find out more about Arcadia!
  • Don’t use just one character for all answers if possible! (We want to get to know as many of your characters as possible)

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can your Main Character (MC) remember their first day of school? Who was with them?

Kasia remembers her first day of school as if it had been yesterday. She was nervous as heck, because despite being an inquisitive child who loved to learn, she didn’t know what to expect of all the new people who were about to enter her life. Having been neighbors with Dyson’s family all her life, they went to school together and all her worries evaporated when Dyson confidently took her hand and walked right into school with her without even taking a look back at his parents or brothers.

Which one of your characters would be the first to buy a house or property? (because that’s part of adulting??)

Georgie? She kind of already has a house. Not sure if she paid money for it or if it there was some other kind of transaction though … because magic?

Does someone in your WIP own a pet?

NOT YET! Someone needs a dog. (And no, I am not counting the Claven as Dyson’s “pets” because they are a herd of calm yet mind-controlling beasts …)

What was your MCs first job and how did they feel about it?

While Kasia volunteered at her local library for years during school, her first paying job was a summer internship at her mother’s work. It was a very forgettable experience that mostly involved distributing mail, operating the copy machine and getting coffee for meetings.

Dyson’s first job was at the summer camp he and both his brothers visited each year. He was pretty pumped because he loved being around people and planning activities outdoors. To no one’s surprise at all, he soon became a favourite among the staff and kids.

Does your MC or another character want kids?

That conversation has definitely happened between my main couple and they would love to have kids someday in the future, with Kasia being especially in favour of adoption or fostering kids as well.

Name a song that reminds one of your characters of heartbreak in their life!

 

This song is one Robyn listens to a lot after Chapter 9 wishing things were different … (shout out to anyone who understands what I am referencing here!)

Has one of your characters lost someone close to them? How did they deal with it?

Findlay had to grow up without his parents, but being from the world he was from, he never quite knew if he lost them for good or if he might be able to see them again one day some way. He was a quiet kid until he got taken in by Georgie’s family and he felt at home with them. (There’s more to that story that I just don’t want to spoil.)

What is an achievement your MC is proud of?

Dyson is especially proud of graduating from university with a major in Archaeology because his family didn’t really think he would truly stick to that field or be able to make a living with it. Nonetheless, they all beamed at him with pride when he showed them his diploma and he never regretted following his passion since.

BONUS: Make an aesthetic for a special or memorable day in one of your character’s lives! (It’s up to you if you want to explain it or not!)

This probably won’t be in the book like ever, but if I ever write a companion novella or something like that for Arcadia, this would probably be the story. Although it might end differently than you think!

I TAG THEE

I hope you liked the tag and if you did, please, spread the word!!! People have so many amazing stories to tell and I hope this is a burst of motivation for all fellow writers.

  1. Oh I love this idea for a tag Kat, and thanks so so much for tagging me as well. I still have the Valentine’s Day one to post and I will at some point (even though we’re way past Valentine’s Day right now! :D) I loved reading your answers for this one and getting to know your characters a little more. I feel like the only way I could get my own house is through magic, and I also feel like someone in my WIP needs a pet, maybe a dog because they’re adorable and I love animals so so much.
    Like Dyson my proudest moment is graduating from university, and oh I love your aesthetic as well. I’d kind of be curious about how it would end seeing as you’ve said it won’t be how we think! 😀
    Great answers, and thanks again for the tag 🙂 ❤

    • I hope you don’t feel pressured to do the tag, because I always just list everyone I remember having their own writing projects in the end to get the tag started haha
      Graduating is something special, right?
      And I actually did talk about the “proposal” story before in one of the tags, but it’s been a looong time. Nothing bad happens, it’s still a sweet story haha

  2. WE DON’T TALK ABOUT CHAPTER NINE IN THIS HOUSE. 🙈 Poor Robyn 😓 Also, Kasia adopting children, yes I can totally see it! And I like that aesthetic, it’s so cuuute, but I’m not sure what to think of it story-wise 👀👀👀

  3. You make the best writing tags so thank you so much for sharing your work and your awesome ideas! 🙂 I love the mix of teen love/drama/magic – it sounds more amazing every-time I read one of these tags!

    • Awe, thank you so much! I am so happy to hear it 😀 There’s just so many tags for bloggers and book content, but very little for writers, so I always like creating them for the community (although answering them myself often turns out more difficult than I expected hahaha)
      I often talk so much about the past of the characters, that they must seem so young hahaha but they are actually in their early twenties in the book … ooops!

  4. Ahhhh Kat once again you created a GREAT writing tag I love it. This is such a cute idea too? That dog gif though give someone a dog, or maybe all of them, it really sounds like they deserve it
    Thank you so much for tagging me! ❤️

  5. Another Writing Tag I’m EXCITED 💗 Also thank you so much for tagging me, I love this Tag and I’m honored to do it 😍

  6. Once again this is such a great tag, Kat, I LOVE the theme so much and your answers… but I have to admit I am especially in love with that aesthetic AND I NEED THAT STORY. So if you don’t write it in a novella, you have to write it just for me anyway, because I want to read it entirely so, so badly now, thank you very much 😛
    Thank you for tagging me, I can’t wait to do this, it’s always so inspiring 🙂

    • Thanks, Marie! It gets increasingly hard to come up with questions, especially ones that are not necessarily seasonal, but I am trying 😀
      And I did talk about the roadtrip that lead to an almost engagement of Dyson and Kas before hahaha they would have freaking eloped if they weren’t such responsible people haha

  7. Hello Kat!
    Yay!!! So happy for this new write tag! I love your answers here, and that is a super cute aesthetic at the end. I think I can relate the most to Kasia, and Dyson seems like a sweet guy.
    I’ll have to sort out what is happening with my new WIP first, but I hope to do this write tag soon 🙂

    • I honestly love doing them! If it gets one more person to read Arcadia or helps one person explore their own characters more, I am already happy.
      Well, let’s just say it ends with a happy couple but not a real engagement.
