everyone has these really nice reasons they joined WordPress like, I wanted to share my writing with the world, I wanted to inspire others, I wanted to help others and then you have me:

I was bored and I had nothing else to do and the idea of a blog appealed to me.

yay for me.

27: Fears?

oh lord. I don’t really know how to explain them.

I’m afraid that I try too hard sometimes, I’m afraid that no one likes me, I’m afraid that I always ruin things and yes. 🙂 (as you can tell, I’m very insecure)

100 Followers Q and A! // Get To Know ME

Hello my friends! Do you remember, last November, I celebrated 100 followers? *thinks* Oh good, you do remember. Do you also remember that I said I would do a Q and A? Yes? Good. Also, I said I would put the Q and A up in 2-3 weeks, not 2-3 months, but whatever, we’ll just forgot that, yeah? Anyways, I am doing the Q and A now, so get prepared to know a whole bunch more about me. Let’s go!

( The name of the person who asked in the question is linked to their website, their questions are in larger font, and my answers are well, normal. 😀 ) Let’s go!



Favourite song ATM?

So, go over to this post…. THIS ONE! It has my favourite songs right now, and most of them are from Post Malone, because he is AWESOME! Also, two new additions~ SAD and Lights Down Low! Love LDL!

Worst trend of 2017?

Probably…… um, all of them? JK. It definitely has to be BOTTLE FLIPPING. Do you know how much that annoyed me? It just – UGH! Stop, okay?

Why did you start a blog?

I started a blog because I was bored, tbh. Then I started loving it, and now I am dedicated. Well, if dedicated means posting twice a month, but who cares, am I right?. 


Favourite playground equipment?

Probably a swing. Feeling the wind across your face is something I love! Also, it makes me free, ya know? You probably don’t but who cares?

Least favourite book?

Okay, so I have never expressed my disgust of Coraline? I literally hate that book. IT HAS NO MEANING, AND THE PLOT? LIKE, WHAT THE HECK? AT LEAST MAKE THE BOOK READABLE, COME ON MATE! Also, like the characters? I HATE THEM, AND TBH, THE CHARACTERS AIN’T EVEN HALF BAD!!

So, yeah, Coraline, my least favourite book. Sorry to all the people who like Coraline. 

Worst memory?

Yeah. It’s kinda rather personal, so no.

Kaylyn Grace

Do you have any pets/animals?

I do not. It angers me, though. I need a puppy! Is that too much to ask for? No. Isn’t! *Mom shakes head in background*

*Mom~ “Yashvi, you can’t take care of your self properly. Who is going to take care of the dog?”*

Thanks, mom. 

What is your favourite thing to do in your past time?

Oh, definitely reading! And… BLOGGING! Duh. I also like to write, but sadly, I am not getting enough time right now to write, but hopefully after a few more terms/semesters, I will have settled in, and then I can get some free time to write.

Do you like crafts and art?

I am not a fan of crafts and arts, actually. Maybe it’s because it never turns out good enough. 

What is your favourite work of art that you have done?

Well. NONE OF THEM, OKAY? I’m bad at arts, and all my artworks are T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E! I mean, they aren’t that bad, but still.

Would you rather give gifts or get them?

Okay. I’m going to be selfish. I’m going to choose the ‘get gifts’ option. I’m sorry. It’s just that presents are nice, okay? Gosh.

What do you think Christmas is about?

Um, I really don’t know. Sorry!


What’s your favourite fragrance?

Ehhhh, depends.

Do you celebrate Christmas?

No. I do not.

Do you use Skype?

No. I do not.

When did you start blogging?

No. I do not.  I started blogging in July or June. July, I think.

Do you wear nail polish?

Yes, I do. I currently have some pink nail polish on my left thumb, black nail polish on my left leg, and dark pink nail polish on my right leg.


What is your favourite thing to blog about?

Probably just random topics, or tags/awards. Those are really fun!

What is your favourite animal?

Ohhh, definitely wolves! I like how they also support each other, and are really independent at the same time, you know??

Why did you start this blog?

Please I was bored, and I had nothing else to do. Everyone gets really fancy thoughts, and then you have me. *cough, cough*

Why did you name it Born Free?

Because I was Born Free. When I was born, I was free. No one could control me, can control me, or will control me. Born Free means exactly that.

Enni Morgan

Would you rather chew a bloody toenail or lick a sweaty armpit?

I hate you Enni! (JK,JK). I would rather chew a bloody toe-nail because blood actually tastes nice. That makes me sound like a vampire, doesn’t it? *cue the evil laugh*

Would you rather have nobody come to your wedding or funeral?

Probably wedding, because I need people there at my funeral, so when the lawyer guy reads my will out loud, they all will be shocked to hear, “All my possessions will be burnt. None of you are getting them,”. Can you imagine how funny that would be? Hilarious.

What’s your pet peeve?

Wet bathroom floors. Ewwwww, get away from me. Also, hair on the floor. Ewwwww why are you sill standing here?

Ten things that make you YOU?

Where Dandelions Grow- An Interview!

Hello! Today I am interviewing an actual author! *squeals* Anyways, let’s go on to the interview with Lydia!

*Note- I’m in italics, Lydia in bold.*

How long did it take you to write the book?

The first draft of this book came together like a dream. It only took me forty days from start to finish, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process.

What was the hardest part?

Writing it was easy, but during the editing process I ran into a few snags and ended up setting it aside for a couple of years. It was only this summer that I took it back out and decided to run with it again.

If you could change the name of the book to something else, what would it be?

Hmmm…. That’s a great question. I pretty much had the name of the book from the very beginning though – before I’d even begun writing it. Therefore I’ve never even considered thinking of a different title. Perhaps I’d go with “Noveltea” if I had to go with something else.

What inspired you the most?

My cousins. We grew up with a very strong bond, and I’m really thankful for that.

When did you first think of the plot?

While reading a short story that one of my cousins wrote. In the book, I ended up getting to use a short paper in that the same cousin (her name is Alexa) wrote. Having her writing be a part of the book makes it extra special to me.

What were your parent’s reactions?

My mom is still reading the book and has liked it so far. My dad read an early draft of the book and gave me some great feedback as well as encouraging me to keep going with it.

If you could change the names of someone, who would it be and what would the new name be?

I wouldn’t change any names, but I would add in the fact that Kamryn (one of the cousins) has the middle name of Rylie. Who knows, I still might add that into a revision some day. 🙂

Thank you for this interview, Yashvi! I enjoyed getting to answer your questions.

Your welcome! It was fun interviewing someone!

Front and Back (of the book, obviously)




What happens when your world falls apart and your dreams are mocked by those closest to you?

Destiny’s idyllic childhood full of laughter and cousins abruptly ended when her mom uprooted the family to move them across the country with strict instructions to never talk about Swallow Ridge again. Eleven years later Destiny moves back to her hometown, determined to find her cousins… and answers.

Plagued by generations of bitterness and manipulation, Destiny hides her life-long goal – unwilling to let anyone else trample her fragile dreams. But life in the cosy town full of dandelions teaches Destiny there’s more to life than what she’s been taught.

Is it possible Swallow Ridge not only holds the answers Destiny so intensely searches for but also the hope?

Enter the giveaway! Don’t you want a $25 gift card from Amazon?
