Teen Writers’ Nook One Year Blogiversary (Feat. All About You Around the Blogosphere Tag)

Greetings readers!!! It brings us great pleasure that you have stumbled upon this blog. We trust that you are doing well! As you can see from the title, today is OUR ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!!! Cue the fireworks!

The past year has been a wild, crazy, fun ride from seeing this li’l ole idea become a reality, reaching over 100 followers, watching the site expand and being able to help teen authors, and even on the verge of releasing an anthology! None of us at TWN could’ve possibly ever dreamed what one whim of an idea could’ve become!!!!!! Has everything gone smoothly and as planned? Naaah, not even by a long shot. But we wouldn’t change any of it. The things we’ve been able to do have been amazing from Escaping the Blogosphere to TWN’s Imagine Anthology and guest posts we’ve been able to have and do, and that doesn’t even include linkups, blog tags, scavenger hunts, cover reveals, etc., that we’ve had the honor to join in on. But what stays with each of us the most would be the friendships we’ve made through this journey. Each TWNer is a huge blessing to us, and we thank God for each of you and the amazing things He has done for this li’l ole blog!!!!!!! But y’all may be wondering what exactly is TWN’s story for how it came to be.

Well, we can’t remember when the idea first came but it was somewhere around May of 2020. We had been listening in on webinars that Teen Author Boot Camp was doing because of the lockdown and everything going on. This was about the time when we decided we wanted to be able to help teen authors out like how TABC was doing. And somewhere along the way we decided we wanted to start up a blog. (Issabelle jumping in real quick to tell the story of how we got the name: I remember how I was just thinking over the idea of a blog and was trying to come up with a cool name for it. I knew I wanted teen writers/authors somewhere in the title (like Teen Author Boot Camp and Go Teen Writers) and I remembered how my mom would always talk about reading nooks and then bam. The title idea came. Teen Writers’ Nook.)

Pssst fun fact, TWN was at first Teen Writer’s Nook with the apostrophe before the “s” but about a couple months after we started our blog, we decided we wanted the apostrophe to go after the “s” to indicate multiple authors writing together. 

Anyway, we first started setting up the Teen Writers’ Nook website somewhere around Memorial Day (don’t remember the actual date) through Google Sites. Katherine then began researching stuff blogs needed and we discovered some pretty interesting news.

Blogs kinda needed this thing known as a commenting section and well, the new Google Sites didn’t have it. So we had to switch. We ended up moving to Wix and began working on the new site around July the Fourth weekend. (Funny how all of this stuff started on holidays. XD) 

One year ago on this day, our older sister came over for a girl day. We watched the live action Aladdin, talked, and just hung out for the day. Near the end, we showed her the nearly completed Teen Writers’ Nook. She helped us set up the contact page and then clicked that published button and

Teen Writers’ Nook was born. (Yeeeah if you wanna see how terrible we were at designing skills you may find the first TWN site right over here, but proceed at your own risk. XD) And that was the start of TWN. It wasn’t until near the end of September that we decided to change yet again and come to the site that we now have. So, SUPER HUGE SHOUTOUT TO OUR BIG SISTER!!!!!!!!!! (Girl, you’re the BEST!!!!! *hugs*❤️❤️❤️)

Also, we realized a month ago that our blogiversary is one day before Harry Potter’s birthday. Wishing you a happy birthday, Harry!!!🥳

Now, it’s time for the All About You Around the Blogosphere tag. Thank you so much, Alexa, for tagging us!!!!!!!

Katherine’s answers are in pink. Alana’s answers are in blue. And Issabelle’s answers are in purple.

Rules:

1. Answer the questions below on your blog.

2. Tag at least a couple other bloggers.

3. Have them answer these questions!

Questions:

What’s your favorite book/book series and why?

The Frog Princess series, Emily Windsnap series, The Princess Companion, The Ascendance Series, etc. I love fairy-tale like qualities and the creativity in these books. Plus, in The False Prince, I love how passionate Sage is to help his country and people.

Little House, Narnia, Harry Potter, and Little Women. Because they’re well-written. (That was the first thing I could think of).

Ummm if most of y’all don’t know the answer to this question by now, I’m gonna have to ask where you’ve been for the past year. XD Okay, but for our new readers this would be the Ascendance Series by Jennifer A. Nielsen!!!!!!!!! Why? Well, cuz it be the best!!!! Nuff said!!!! (But also cuz Sage is SUCH an awesome, unique character, the plot twists were spot on, and it’s a book you just cannot put down. Etc., etc., etc.)

Who is your favorite author?

*takes a deep breath* E. D. Baker, Gail Carson Levine, Liz Kessler, Jennifer A. Nielsen, Melanie Cellier (newly added to the list), and Grace A. Johnson (also newly added to the list).

I don’t have a favorite.

Jennifer A. Nielsen (duh), Grace A. Johnson (one of the best teen authors to ever walk planet earth), Ally Carter, Melanie Dickerson, Chuck Black, and Issabelle Perry (I hear she’s got some pretty great stuff going on XD). 

What is your favorite food?

Nachos!!! 

Fruit.

Pasta and chocolate for the win folks!

What gives you inspiration for your books?

Everything.

Music, movies, other books, nature, all animals, people or characters, the Bible, and God.

Books, music, LOTR and other movies I really like, literally EVERYTHING, and of course Jesus (cuz fun fact: without Jesus I literally would not be writing, since I had VERY DIFFERENT plans for my life… which also means I wouldn’t be here, so I owe Him my all!!).

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

A remote island. 

South Dakota for the USA. Australia, Ireland, or the United Kingdom for somewhere else.

CARTHYA!!!!!!!!!! (From The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen… y’all really need to read that book. XD)

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Introvert.

Both.

Definitely both, but I tend to lean more toward the extroverted side. 😉 

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Oooh, good question! Probably that I’m a Jesus freak. (Anyone heard of the song “Jesus Freak” by DC Talk [aka TobyMac’s earlier band]?)

No trespassing!!!!

Be warned: Issabelle is a writer who has embraced her insanity side so be prepared for ramblings that make no sense, utter wackiness, and just generally to laugh until your sides hurt. (I was gonna say laugh your head off but then this post would’ve gotten intense really fast. XD)

    Eep! So happy for you guys!! I can’t believe it’s been so many months since I discovered your blog, and as the saying goes, da rest is history. I appreciate that you always write up thoughtful posts full of inspiration and encouragement, and I know many others appreciate it as well.

    Favorite color? Pink. Not hot pink, though – rose pink or mauve pink or basically any soft pink. (I feel like I may have told y’all that before. XD

    *chokes in thinking about no frosting on cake* It’s obvious where I stand, lol.

    • Katherine

      YES! *high-fives* Pink is my FAVORITE color too!!!!!!!!!! 😀 Ooh, soft pinks are very pretty!!!!!!!😍 I love any shade of pink except a dull pink. (Haha, yeah, I remember you telling me your fav color was pink. But I didn't know what shades, so I guess I got to learn something new! Woo-hoo! XDD 😉)

      Lol, same girl!! 😉 I totally prefer frosting on cake. It's just sooo sweet I love it!!!!! XD

  • Victoria

    AHHHHHHHH!!!!! HAPPY ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!!! I LOVED reading about how TWN came to be and, man, I could TOTALLY relate to how time consuming it is to get a blog up and running! XD (But seriously, when you said you watched the live action Aladdin the day you launched TWN it made me feel really old all of a sudden…it seems like yesterday that movie came out!!!) XD

    *GASPS* OH MY GOODNESS, y’all, THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH FOR THE TAG!!!!! I absolutely CAN’T WAIT to do it!!!! It looks so much fun!!!!!!! Also, I LOOOOVED your answers!!!! (Especially that certain last author you put down as your favorite, Issa. 😉 I literally laughed out loud at that!) XDD

    Blue’s DEFINITELY my favorite color (pretty sure ya’ll knew that already) 😉 and um…is it even legal to eat cake without frosting???? Like, frosting is a MUST HAVE for me! Cake just ain’t the same without it. XD

    Anyway CONGRATULATIONS again for this AMAZING MILESTONE y’all have reached!!!!!! One year down and (hopefully) many many more to go! 😉 During the time I’ve been around TWN, you guys have seriously changed my life. I know it sounds cliché but it’s absolutely true! Y’all are just AMAZING and have been a huge encouragement and inspiration to me!!! You guys aren’t just changing me, but y’all are changing the world and I can’t wait to see where God continues to take you guys on this blogging journey!!! Always remember that He’s going to do INCREDIBLE things with each and every one of you!!!! 😀 <3 <3 <3

    • Katherine

      THANK YOU SO MUCH, VICTORIA!!!!!!!!!!!! Aw, YAY, I’m happy to hear you enjoyed reading TWN’s history/story!!!!! Oh I know, it is time-consuming but TOTALLY worth it in the end!😉 (Haha, I know, right?! It really does feel like just yesterday Aladdin came out. Man, time flies. Now I feel old too. 😂 XD)

      OF COURSE, GIRL!!!!! YOU ARE SO WELCOME!!!!! <3333 Eeekk, yay, I CAN'T WAIT to read your answers!!!!!!!! (Especially, your answer to the last question *cough cough*. I can't wait to see what you say!😉) Yes, it was so much fun!!!!! Thank you so much, girl!!!!!!!!! (Haha, I laughed at that too! You gotta love Issabelle! *winks*)

      Oooh, blue is a pretty color!!!!!! I really love ocean blue!!! (Yep, but it's always good to have the reminder so I don't forget. #dorybrainsometimes XD) Definitely not legal in my opinion. I don't think I can even eat cake without frosting. XD SAME HERE! Mmm, I love frosting!!! I totally agree with ya, girl. XD

      Aw, thank you SO much!!!!!!! I pray that God will bless us with many more years! Awww, girl, you're so sweet!!!!💗 You have changed my life too, and I am SO thankful that I met you!!!!!!!!

  • Grace A. Johnson

    CONGRATULATIONS, GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SOOOOOO glad I found your blog and you three AMAZING people!!!!!!!! *hugs* Y’all have done a FABULOUS job building this lovely writers’ nook and community and I’m so proud to be a part of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (And, seriously, Izzy, you’re too kind! <333) (Except for when you're killing my book babies…)

    Ooh…I honestly don't think I have a favorite color! Maybe that beige pink I use on my site…or sage green…or dark blue…or grey. *shrugs* All of them but yellow and orange! XD And definitely no frosting. 😉

    Thanks for the tag!!!

    • Issabelle Perry

      EEEEEEE THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH GRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Girl, you and me both, hahaha. TWN wouldn’t be the same without ya. (And just generally the whole blogosphere. I mean I’d always feel like a half of me was missing, but I guess that’s what comes with the twin thing. XD) *hugs you back* Girl, THANK YOU A HUNDRED MILLION TIMES OVER!!!! (ANd I know that Kat and Alana are thinking the same thing!) Girl, we’re the ones who are proud to have you a part of this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      (Lol, that is actually quite true. XD My soft side is only seen through the blogosphere and to my blogging peeps. As for my fictional charries… eh, they’ve never seen it. XD)

      Oooo girl I’m the SAME way!!!!! Oooo those are FANTABULOUS colors!!!!!!! *gasps super loudly* Did you seriously just say NO frosting?????? *faints*

      *recovers to add* You’re SO very welcome!!!! *faints again*

      • Grace A. Johnson

        Dude. I’m late.

        YOU ARE SO WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWWWWW!!! GIRL!!!! That is just too sweet! <333 (YES! I feel the same!!! Definitely the twin thing!) Y'all are so welcome!!!

        (*sniffs* Your poor charries… It's okay, guy. I love you, and that's all that matters!)

        Haha, thanks! I did! MUAH HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!! *fans you* Seriously, though, I'm just more of a cake girl. I mean, I like frosting, just not too much of it. Unless we're talking red velvet, in which case, yes, I would like me some cream cheese frosting, please and thank you! 😉

        • Issabelle Perry

          Girl, I’m always more late. XD

          AWWWW GIRL!!!!!!! <3333 <3333 <33333 (YESS!!!!!!! We're so good at this twin thing even if I do say so myself!! XD) EE!!!! <3333

          (*also sniffs* I know, it's quite tragic. I think all my characters have a good reason for their authorphobia. Lol. XDD You crack me up!!)

          You're welcome!!!!! Yeah, I see, well, I shall overlook this one flaw of yours cuz I'm just nice that way. XDD OOOO YES I SECOND THAT!!!!! Cream cheese frosting on red velvet cake is literally the greatest invention since sweet tea and chocolate. XD)

          • Grace A. Johnson

            <333333 (WE ARE!!!!) <33333

            (On that note, I suppose mine do too…although I'm not quite as frightening as you. I tend to spare at least 35% of my characters. XD)

            I appreciate your niceness. 😉 YES IT IS!!!!! Gosh, I'm hungry now!

            • Issabelle Perry

              YESSSSSS!!!!!!! <333333

              (I suppose they might have a milder case than my characters do. Wow, really? 35%? That's such a high number! Have you ever considered, let's say, bringing that down to 5%? Just enough that someone at least stays alive even if it is that random old guy who has no name outside of Random Old Guy. That's what I do. XD 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣)

              Hehehehehe, of course, you do. 😉 What would you do without me. XDD Lol, so am I! XD

  • Lily

    *Throws shower of confetti*

    Congratulations girls!! I’m so excited for you all!

    And such a fun tag! I really enjoyed reading your answers! (hold on, there’s a fourth sister?!)

    As for me, I’d say my favorite color is blue and definitely frosting on cake (I asked my sister her opinion. She gave me a ‘really, did you have to ask’ look; so yeah, her vote is frosting for sure!)

    Wait! Do you mean pasta and chocolate at the same time or separately, Issabelle 😉

    • Issabelle Perry

      *dances in confetti*

      THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH LILY!!!!!!!!!!!!! That just means SO Much to us!!!!!!

      Eeee yesss, Ikr!!!!! I think Alexa was the one who created it!! It was awesome!!!!! Awww THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!!! (Lol, yup and a fifth. XD We have a big family.)

      Ooooo blue is an AMAZING color!!!! Do you like just any kind of blue or light/dark blue? YESSS frosting on cake is pretty much the only way to go. XD (Lol, I’m glad your sister agrees!!!!! And no, we shouldn’t really have to ask. XD FROSTING FOR THE WIN!)

      Lol I meant separately, but ooooo now that you mention it, maybe I should try them together. (Yes, I do weird stuff like that all the time. XD) THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by!!!!!

      • Lily

        Haha! I have a big family too (there’s six of us in all!)

        Hmm. I lean toward the darker side of blue (though I’ve done lighter tones before.) I guess the only blue I’d not wear is the bright neon type (wait, can blue come in a neon shade?!)

        Phew! I thought I was the only one who did the occasional weird food combo XD (My sister has not forgiven me for trying mac ‘n cheese with …. *wait for it* … spinach! XD )

        No problem! I love visiting your guys’ blog 🙂

        • Issabelle Perry

          Aaah we’re so close! My fam has eight!!!!

          Ooooo the darker side of blue is SO beautiful!!! Sometimes the lights shades are too light for me. Lol, SAME!!!!! *googling if there’s a neon blue* Huh, I think there is but it doesn’t really look neonish. XD

          Girl, you are MOST DEFINITELY not!!!!! Just asked Kat and Alana, they’d tell you I do weird food combinations a lot. XD (Lol. Well, I don’t know if I’d try that, but now I’m curious how it’d taste. XD)

          Awwww, Lily, you’re SO sweet!!!! THANK YOUUUU!!! 🙂 THAT JUST MEANS SO MUCH TO ME!!!

  • Joelle Stone

    THIS IS INSANELY A COOL IDEA AND CONGRATS ON GETTING YOUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!! (And thx for tagging me!!)

    Also… y’all really need to get Andrew Peterson on your favorite author lists… *shoves books into your hands* *forces you into seat* *opens book and waits for the thrilled squealing*

    Fav. Color: Switches from blue, teal, green, purple, and gradient combinations of those colors. 🙂

    Frosting or No: Depends on the frosting. Cream cheese? Nah. Lots of frosting? Nah. Buttercream frosting? YEEESSS ALL THE FROSTING!!! Sugar cookie frosting? YEESS BUT THE DOUGH IS BETTER SO HAND THAT OVER!!

    Hrm. How about “Courage is found in unlikely places”? 😉

    • Issabelle Perry

      THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH JOELLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! D’awww, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!!!!!!!! I can’t believe TWN’s been around THAT long. It’s crazy!!!! I still feel like a newbie blogger. XD (Oh, you’re SO welcome!!!!)

      Aahhh I KNOW!!!! EVERYONE tells me about his books and I’ve been wanting to read them. So hopefully, I can get through my insanely long TBR list quicker. 😉 *happily accepts any and all free books* *is also anticipating the thrilled squealing*

      Ooooo those colors are AWESOME!!!! I LOVE teal and purple and certain shades of green!!!! And gradient combinations are just the coolest!!!!

      Aahhhh I LOVED reading your frosting answer. It was hilarious!!!! Buttercream frosting IS SO GOOD though!!! Ooo I don’t know if I’ve ever had sugar cookie frosting but that just sounds SO GOOD!!!! (Okay now I’m hungry. lol. XD)

      YESSSSS THAT IS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that little quote!!!! <333 THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by, girl!!! <3333

  • Lorelei A.

    Happy one year blogging anniversary!!!!!!! WOOHOOOO! 🎈🎉🎆 I just started reading in May, but it looks like you guys have progressed so much in the past year!!!! You have literally reached SOOOO MANY PEOPLE in just ONE YEAR which is absolutely, positively, totally, AWESOME-ly AMAZING!!!! You guys rOcK!! 😄❤

    Izzy, I love that you listed Melanie Dickerson as one of your favorite authors! And Alana, I love the Little House books (I’ve read the series a lot!!!). Kat, I would never have thought you are an introvert, because y’all are so energetic on here. (I’m not saying that we [us?] introverts can’t be energetic. In fact, I might even classify myself as an “energetic introvert” XD) Also, “Jesus Freak” is a great song!!!

    I actually don’t have a favorite color. 🤣 I guess yellow.
    Frosting, definitely! But not vanilla (something about it is too sweet – unless it’s vanilla buttercream!), I prefer CHOCOLATE!

    Anything else I’d like to say???? Ouyay uysgay reaay hetbay estbay!!!! 😂😁

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Lorelei!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 I’m glad you found us and have been reading!!!!! I LOVE having you here!!!!!!!! <333 Aw, well, all credit goes to God. He has used this site to reach people, and I know He has a purpose for TWN even if it's as simple as encouraging someone. AW, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!😊❤️ You ROCK too, girl!!!!!!! Thank you for reading and commenting and for your support!!!!!!!!!!

      I guess my introvert side shows up more in person than on the internet. Or the internet brings out the energetic part of me.🤔 Eh, I don't know.😆 Haha, I love the "energetic introvert"!!!! That's DEFINITELY what I am!!!!😉 Yes, it is a great song!!!!!!

      I know, favorites are so hard sometimes. Ooh, yellow is a beautiful color!!!!
      Yep, frosting for sure! *high-five* Mmm, vanilla buttercream is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!!!!!! AND SO is CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!

      LOL!!!!🤣🤣🤣 LOVE IT!!!!!! Is that a secret language?😂

      • Lorelei A.

        ❤❤❤❤❤ AMEN, girl!!!

        Lol, yeah, you probably wouldn’t even recognize me in person. I’m pretty introverted XD. Unless I’m with my friends…then I’m kind of crazy!

        It’s pig latin. 🤣😂
        <33333

        • Katherine

          ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

          I’m sure I would still recognize you, Lorelei.😉 <33 Yeah, I'm super introverted too, but I'd bet we would be crazy together!!! XD

          Whoa, Really??!! That's so cool!!!! I guess Google didn't recognize Pig Latin, cuz I had tried to search that phrase and nothing came up.😂😂 Okay, now I'm curious what the phrase means. I typed the phrase in Google and funny thing is this post is what came up.😆

  • Shruthika

      Haha, yeah, we’ve DEFINITELY come a long way! Our new site WAAYYY better. *sighs* The old days when we weren’t good at designing websites. XD I guess you get better with practice, am I right?

  • Allie Jo Andersen

    Yay, happy blogiversary!!! I’m so glad that you all started this blog and am so thankful to have gotten to know all three of you over the last year or so!!!! You all are amazing and it brings a smile to my face every time we interact!! 😀

    Okay, let me see….. my favorite color is either purple or turquoise. 🙂 And I would say yes to frosting on cake—only if it’s not too much, if that makes any sense. XD

    Also, thank you for tagging me on the blog tag!!! I’ll have to do this over on my blog!! 😀

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Allie!!!!! Awww, thank you!!!!!!!😊 I am so thankful to have gotten to know you too!!!!!!! You’re an AMAZING friend, girl!!!! <333 Same here!!!!!!😀

      You're absolutely welcome, Allie!!!!! Oooh, yay, I can't wait to read your answers!!!!!! 😀

  • Louise

    First off, congratulations!
    I know it might not seem like it to a lot of people, but I know doing stuff like this (especially teamed up with others) can be a lot of hard work. But I remember when I first found this site, I was so excited to see that there are like-minded people out there! And then as I read several different posts, I was introduced to a whole new side of the internet I hadn’t known existed (mainly young writers, like myself and my friends, blogging about about the do’s and don’ts of writing, and the painstaking scenarios your characters so loving put you through 😉 and I don’t think that would’ve happened without this wonderful site (which looks beautiful I might add!). So thank you so very much! And congratulations again! One year is a big accomplishment!

    Now for the second point: I adore The False Prince. Jaron is oh-so-amazing, and I absolutely love him and the whole world of Carthya. I had recently found that series when I stumbled across this blog, those many months ago, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed every mention of the books!

    All in all, spectacular job! And I wish you the best!

    • Issabelle Perry

      THANK YOU SO MUCH LOUISE!!!!!!!!!
      Oh, yes, it can honestly be a lot harder than most people think. I know starting Teen Writers’ Nook and just everything I need to do for the blog takes more time than most people would believe. Awww,like, girl, let me just go ahead and say that this ENTIRE comment LITERALLY MADE MY WHOLE DAY AND I WAS JUST SMILING OVER HERE SO HARD!!!!!!!!!! Girl, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing all of this with us!!!! It just means so much to know that TWN has helped you in someway and helped introduce you to other writers like you!!! That has always been something I’d hoped TWN could do, so I thank you!!!!! For all this!!!! (D’awww, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! <333) Girl, you're very welcome!!! But I know all of us at TWN are the ones who are thanking YOU!!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!!! Aaaahh ikr!! I can't believe it's been that long!! Like just yesterday it seems I was writing up my first post and getting excited over my first ever comment!!!

      AAAAHHHHH YESSS THE FALSE PRINCE IS AMAZING!!!!! *high fives* Girl, I second EvErYtHiNg!!! Jaron is THE best and I just wanna live in Carthya SO badly!!! Aahh I KNEW there'd be someone who'd enjoy my every constant mention about this incredible series. 😉

      A HUNDRED MILLION THANK YOUS, Louise!!!!!!! Seriously, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sending this comment because I enjoyed reading every second of it!!! And I hope to see you around the TWN community!!! *sends lotsa kinda-late-welcome chocolate*

      • Louise

        You’re SO WELCOME!
        Kudos to you! It can be a lot of work to start a website!! I just started a blog with a good friend of mine and I was honestly surprised at how much work it required! It is so amazing that you and your sisters have been doing this a whole year!!! Y’all are so encouraging! Keep at it!

        Also, I see on the side-bar that you’re on the second draft of The Heir To His Crown! I really enjoyed reading about it, and I look forward to when you publish!!

        Ooo, *accepts chocolate* I love dark chocolate! Thank you! *grins*

        • Issabelle Perry

          Aww THANKS!!!!!!! Aaahh, you’ve SO got that one right!!!!! Oooo THAT IS SO EXCITED!!!! WOOHOOO GO LOUISE!!!!!!! I hope everything’s been going awesome with your blog!!!!! Aaahh, girl, I was SO surprised myself when TWN started. It’s much harder than it looks. XD I know right!!! THANK YOUUU!!!! <333333 D'awww, girl, it just encourages ME so much to know that I can help encourage others!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!

          Aaaahhh, girl, DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT JUST MADE MY ENTIRE WEEK??????!!!!!! Like, seriously, telling an author you wanna read her book is just one of the best things EVER!!!!! I can't wait until I get to share HTHC with all of y'all!!! I mean, I can already tell I've still got another yearish left to go with getting this story together because mah boy Keenum is a handful and messes everything up for me, but hopefully y'all won't have to wait too much longer. <33333333

          Aaaah dark chocolate is AMAZING!!!! *gives you extra dark chocolate* You're very welcome!!!!

          • Louise

            haha! yes, I’m learning just how much work it can be. YOU’RE WELCOME! You are very encouraging and helpful, and your enthusiasm is WONDERFUL!
            Haha! Yes, Main Characters can be SOOOOOOO STUBBORN! My own mc likes to make things hard for me *major eyeroll* but *sigh* I need him, so what’s a girl to do? XD He’s such a personality.
            But, from what I’ve read, I do believe I will absolutely ADORE Keenum! I’ve got a character like him in my own book and my friends simply love him! I bet Keenum will blow everyone away! Can’t wait to read about him!

            • Issabelle Perry

              Hahaha, I feel ya. 😉 D’awwwww, Louise, you are just TOO SWEET!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! That just made me smile!!! 😊
              YESSSS!!!!!! I mean what is up with them? It’s like they think they rule their own world and can do whatever they want and are not subject to our authorly desires. XDDD Ugh, I sooooo feel ya. Keenum was the same way. I couldn’t understand his problem though, cuz all I wanted to do was ruin his life, torment him mercilessly, and destroy everything that ever mattered to him. XDD Lol, hopefully, he’ll eventually straighten up for you? XD Aaaahh right???!!!!

              D’awwww, girl, that just means SO MUCH!!!!!! Oooooo really? Then, I think you’ll really like Keenum!!!!! AAAHHH YESSS!!!! I hope so!!! Or he’ll aggravate us with his snark. XD AWWWW THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33333

              • Louise

                You’re welcome! LOL. I love snark, so I’ll adore Keenum either way! XD
                HAHA! You’re so right! All we want them to do is tell us their deepest secrets, and in their darkest moments, cry out to us for help which we won’t give cause we love them so much and want to see them succeed on their own!
                I didn’t really help by giving my MC a personality that naturally likes to look me in the eye and say: “well why don’t you try and stop me?” But on the bright side, he’s strong enough to get me through the whole series without loosing his potential. XD

                • Issabelle Perry

                  YESSS!!!! Aaahh, I have no idea what it is but characters with snark are just the best. Awww I HOPE SO!!!! <3333
                  YESSSS!!! GIRL THAT JUST SO ACCURATELY DESCRIBES THE CHARACTER/AUTHOR RELATIONSHIP!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THIS!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 PERFECT!! *high fives*
                  Aaahhh but those personalities ARE SO MUCH fun to read about. XD Really, it's like you can NEVEREVEREVER get enough of them. XD Hahahaa, see, well there you go. 😉 Your character sounds AWESOME and one I think I'd really enjoy reading about!!!!

      • Louise

        Nice to meet you too, Katherine!!
        You’re welcome!!! (and that answer to the question: what gives you inspiration for your books? Your answer… I laughed because I can totally relate to that! I’ll get struck with inspiration from literally just seeing someone walk down the street! XD It’s amazing!)

        • Katherine

          🙂❤️

          Haha, I know, right?! Sometimes the random, craziest things can give us the most GENIUS idea for our stories! 😉 It’s crazy and amazing at the same time! XD

          • Louise

            It is! Especially when you find someone who acts like your character in real life! (I know a couple people who remind me of my characters, they are SO inspirational! LOL… even if they don’t know it 😉 ) It IS crazy and amazing! Being a writer is sooooo fun! There are so many things you can view differently from a writing perspective!

            • Katherine

              Oh my goodness, I know right?! It just blows my mind away to find someone who acts just like my character!!!! It’s incredible!!!! (Haha, they don’t know they’re helping you write your one-day-world-famous novel!😂) YES YES YES, I totally agree!!!!!!! 😀 It’s. So. Much. Fun!!!!! 😀 Absolutely!! 😉

  • Lissa

  • Em Elizabeth

    I know I’m like a week late but I’ve been volunteering as a camp counselor so I just saw this but HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!! I forget exactly at what point I started following this blog, but I have very much enjoyed reading all your fun, quirky, energetic, and encouraging posts, and I’m happy that you guys have been able to do so much with this site! It really is amazing. Congratulations on this huge milestone! I wish you all the luck in your writing and blogging endeavors moving forward!

    • Issabelle Perry

(I know, it totally doesn’t feel like it’s been that long.) But I remember being so excited when you had started following us cuz I had seen you around Go Teen Writers… so it was just cool!!!!!!! D’awww, girl, you are TOO SWEET!!!! A HUNDRED MILLION THANK YOUS!!!! I literally can’t say how much it means to me that you love the energetic and quirkiness, cuz I always wonder if anyone gets annoyed with my crazy side. XD EEEE THAT JUST MEANS SO MUCH!!!!!!! Girl, this comment just gave me all da happy feels!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! *gives you all da chocolate* THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOO!!!! And the same back at ya, girl! 😉

  • Twi

    Happy belated Blogiversary!!!!! Your website TRN is so cool! I must admit I’m not on it as much as your other fans but when I do check you guys out I’m always impressed! As a teen writer myself it is so cool to see others like me. You guys are really cool and if my own website can be half as pretty and amazing as yours I’ll be glad! I hope you guys keep this up for many years to come! (Even when you aren’t teens anymore, don’t let that stop you)

    I also can’t wait for your WIP books to come out. They look soooooo cool!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also I love Melanie Cellier! Her work is so great! It’s clean and safe and I’ve listened to her books a dozen times (I’m over stating it but that will be the case one of these days) I also love the way she keeps the magic in the fairy tale retellings she writes.

    I wish you guys well at Teen Writers Nook and can’t wait to see more!

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Twi!!!!!!!!!😀 Aww, thank you!!!!!!!<33 I'm glad you think so!!!!! Aw, that means so much to me and Is and Alana that you're impressed with what's going on on the blog!!!!! It always makes me so happy to know that my readers like it!!! Wow, that's AWESOME that you're a teen writer too!!!!!!!😀 What kind of things do you like to write? Aww, THANK YOU!!!!!!!😊 You're SUPER cool yourself!!!! AWWW, girl, you're so sweet!!!!!!!!😊 <333333 I think you're website is SUPER pretty!!!!!!! And I LOVE its purpleish-blue color!!!!!!! (Oh, and I read on your About Page that you want to educate people on clean books. I think that's so cool!!!!) Thank you!!! Lord willing, we'll be here hopefully for a long time. (Haha, I won't.😉)

      Aww, THANK YOU!!!!!!! I can't wait to share them with everyone!!

      EEEEKKKK, YAY, ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!?!?! I just can't get enough of her stuff!!!!!! I even subscribed to her newsletter just so I could get the bonus chapters for The Princess Companion! (Although, I haven't read them yet. *cough cough*) Exactly, it's so much better when the books are clean! (Haha, same for me!! I just recently discovered her books, so I haven't read many yet. But, yeah, in the future I will have read them a dozen times! XD) Ooh, yes, that's cool too!!

      Thank you so much, Twi!!!! We wish you and Louise well at Bookish Productions and look forward to seeing more of y'alls posts!!! It's nice to meet you, girl!!!!!!

      • Twi

        OH MY GOSH!!! I’m so happy that you looked at and liked our site!
        We are so honored that you want to keep seeing our blogs!
        I’m also very excited to read your books when they’re published!
        As for what I like to write, well, I guess you could say YA. Me and Louise and our other writer friends are set on putting some clean YA books on the markets. I have a lot of plot bunnies piling up that cover fairy tale retellings to sci fi to superheroes. Right now I’m writing my first book to one day be published, all I want to say it’s the first in a trilogy. I’m also writing my debut novel which is a stand alone that Louise thinks is epic which I take as a compliment since it’s basically a romance and she hates romance so if she likes this book I am honored indeed (also if you have romance in your books and Louise likes said romance you have been paid high respects).
        Also my favorite character in the Four Kingdom series is Princess Celeste (she is freaking awesome!) my favorite character in the Beyond The Four Kingdoms series is Princess Celine (love that girl) and Elena is my favorite from the Spoken Mage series.
        We can’t wait to see what you guys do next!
        HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY OR NIGHT!!
        Yours truly, Sarah Twilight.

        • Katherine

          Aww!😊 <333 Y'alls blog is FANTABULOUS!!!!!!!!
          ❤️❤️
          Aw, really?!?! That makes me SO HAPPY, girl!!!!!!!!!! 😀 Awesome!!!!!!! I like to write YA too! GIRL, I am SO glad to hear that!!!!!!!! I always support clean books!!!!! I know that you, Louise, and your other friends can do it! Never give up! Always stand for clean books! Oooh, that sounds cool!!!!!!! I love all three of those genres, so I can't wait to read your stories once you write them!!!!!!!!!! 😀 THAT IS SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 WOO-HOO!!!!!!! You go, girl!!!!!! You can totally get your book published!!!!!!!! Oooh, the first in a trilogy?! That's awesome!!!!!!!!! (That means more books in the same storyline!!!!! Eeekk, yay!!! XD) COOL!!!!!!! I like to read romance! Haha, that's great that Louise thinks it's epic even if she doesn't like romance!!!
          Celeste seems like an awesome character!!!!!!! I have The Princess Game and I CAN'T WAIT to read it!!!!!!!! I think I'm really going to like Celeste!!!!! Oooh, that's cool!!!!!! I haven't read anything from The Four Kingdoms or Spoken Mage series yet. I've just recently found out about Melanie Cellier so I've only read The Princess Companion so far. My favorite character in that book was Max and then it's Alyssa. *whispers: for a little sneak peek, I have a review for The Princess Companion that I'll post on TWN in the next month or two.*
          Aww, thank you!!!!!!!! <33333
          THANK YOU!!!!!!! YOU TOO!!!!!!🤗
          ~Katherine

          • Twi

            The Four Kingdom Books are great! Make sure to read all of them! We basically get introduced to all the mc’s of the series in book one, like, Princess Ava, Princess Mary, and Princess Celeste, (the fifth one isn’t mentioned till book four). I hope you enjoy the series as much as me! It is nice to meet a fellow Melanie Cellier fan at last!!!!!!!!!!

            • Katherine

              I TOTALLY will!!!😉 I have The Princess Fugitive and The Princess Game. I hope to get the rest of the books in the series. Ooh, yay, we get POV’s from all the princesses?!?!?! AWESOME!!!!! WOO-HOO!!!!! 😀
              I’m sure I will!!!! 😉 And after I read them, I’ll let you know so we can fangirl over them!!! Haha, YES IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 *high-fives*

  • Alexa

    HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!!!! I’m so happy for y’all and I’m so grateful that you created TWN!! I can not imagine life without you ladies! Seriously!!! You guys have influenced my life MUCH MUCH MUCH more than you know! CONGRATS!!! *throws steamers and passes out chocolate* *cues the music* You guys, this is such a special occasion!!! *hugs* YOU GUYS ROCK!!! ❤

    Ahh, it’s the tag I created!! *shakes head* I was so new to the blogosphere when I made this tag XD. BUT, it’s great to see it back!! *claps hands* And I loved reading your answers!! I love all three of your favorite foods: nachos, fruit, pasta, and chocolate!! In fact, my favorite food is a type of pasta too! What’s my favorite color, you say? Well, I’m going to make y’all guess. XD You’re welcome! 😉 And I prefer frosting on cake because for me, it would be too dry without it! Like, I HAVE to have the frosting. But if there’s ice cream, then I would go to the ice cream first, rather than the cake. Yep, I’m a ice cream freak. 🤣

    ONE YEAR is a HUGE milestone, gals!!! CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN!!! Keep on being the role models you are! You guys are changing the world!! ❤❤

    • Issabelle Perry

Aww, but it’s got so many good memories!!!! YES IT IS!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, GIRL!!!!!!!! YESSS!!!!!! Girl, we could get along SO well (it’s a shame we weren’t born as sisters, oh well, we’ll have to settle as blogging sisters)!!! 😉 Oooo really!! THAT IS SO AWESOME!!!! Aaahhh, you’re too sneaky. 😉 Okay, I’m guessing blue! YESSS FROSTING ON CAKE IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!! Oooo yes, ice cream is SO GOOD TOO!!!!!!!!! Hey, girl, I’m an ice cream freak too. XD

    I have never read the Princess Companion or the Ascendence series.
    I love Narnia and Emily windsnap and all the others though.
    Of the three of you I know Issabelle best but I hope to get to know Kathrine and Alana as well.
    I think your first site was awesome! How dare you think it was bad??? You want to see a really bad site? Try and dig up my old school blog. “School Stuff.” Talk about cringe worthy.
    I love how you put yourself Issabelle!🤣
    I agree with all your favorite foods.
    Yes let us praise Jesus for His input in our lives!😀
    I would not choes to move if i could live anwhere.
    I am both an intro and extrovert.
    My warning lable would say: “Careful, Don’t bring up the topic of books. And by no means should you metion Warriors.”

    • Issabelle Perry

      AAAHH THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH CORRIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Aaahhh I LOVE that with the emoji thing!!! Very genius and creative!!!! 🙂
      I’ve never read The Princess Companion either. 😄 Oooo that’s AWESOME!!!! I’ve been wanting to read Emily Windsnap…
      Aahhh, yes, well if you at least semi-like me (🤣), you’d really like Katherine and Alana. They’re not as crazy but that’s probably a good thing. 🤣 We need some sane people in this world. 🙂
      D’awwwww, girl, do you know how much this made me smile????? Like, girl, you are TOO sweet!!!!! But THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! <333333 Lol, I guess we can only improve in our site designing skills. XD Though, I'm sure it's not that bad!!!!

    • Katherine

      Haha, that’s so cool that you used three of each emoji!!!!!!!!!! Like Issabelle said it’s totally genius!!!!!! 😉
      Girl, you should totally read The Princess Companion and The Ascendance Series!!!!!!!!! They’re both So GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! (Although, The Princess Companion has a little bit of romance, if you like that or not.)
      Eeek, YES, I love Narnia and Emily Windsnap too!!!!!!!!! I just recently bought the ninth book of Emily Windsnap, but I’d like to read through the whole series again.
      Aw, you’re sweet!!!! I hope to get to know you better too!!!!! (Hey, I read on your gravatar about thing that you like to crochet. I love to crochet too!!!)
      Aww, that’s nice that you thought our old site is awesome!!!!!!! <3333 I'm sure your old site is awesome too!!!!!!!!
