What do you like about blogging?
Peter’s response: Well, Jason actually asked me to help out with his blog. I really enjoy putting my work out there on the World Wide Web, so that others may tell me what they think.
Jason’s response: I like being able to share my thoughts and imaginings with the world. It’s a really exciting feeling to write a poem (or story,) and then be like, “Hey, look. Somebody liked it.”
Why did you start writing?
Peter’s response: It was really just a drive that I’ve had from a young age. I think I have to owe it all to my crazy imagination. I loved reading books like Redwall, and I tried writing on a laptop before I even knew how to type.
Jason’s response: I started writing after going to the a thousand islands in Canada when I was about 9. They were really beautiful and the architecture just sparked my imagination in such a way that I knew I had to make something out of it.
If you could pick anything to do what would it be?
Peter’s response: Jason’s wish is pretty sweet.
Jason’s response: I wish I could go be part of a revival here in America.
Peter’s response: I’m a mint freak, so probably something with mint and chocolate. Pasta is also amazing (Italian roots)
Jason’s response: I love my mom’s empanadas.
Which season do you prefer: spring, summer, fall, or winter?
Peter’s response: Can I pick two? Summer and fall!
Jason’s response: Same as Peter. In summer you get to not have school. My birthday (and Peter’s) are in fall.
Who’s your favorite author?
Peter’s response: Ah! That’s always such a hard question for me to answer! I would probably have to say either Chuck Black, John Flannagan, Lois Lowry, or Ted Dekker
Jason’s response: Other than God, I would have to say this is a hard question. I love Lois Lowry and Madeleine Le’engle. Ted Dekker and Lucy Maud Montgomery are also very cool, but I could just keep on naming authors for a LONG time. Lewis’s nonfiction is amazing!
What is your favorite quote?
Peter’s response: “Yet do not cast all hope away. Tomorrow is unknown. Rede oft is found at the rising Sun.” ~ Legolas
Jason’s response: “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”—C.S. Lewis
Peter’s response: The Incredibles or Spiderman: Homecoming
Jason’s response: Toy Story 3 or Frozen. (I know. . .but. . .) I also really love LOTR.
Favorite sport or activity?
Peter’s response: Dance, acting, and parkour!
Jason’s response: Dance and acting
What Bible verse comforts you the most?
Peter’s response: 1 Peter 2:9
Jason’s response: Philippians 1:6
Best loved memory?
Peter’s response: Staying home and eating monkey bread (basically cinnamon rolls), while opening stockings at 6:30 in the morning on Christmas day.
Jason’s response: SO hard! I love memories so much. . .maybe when I ripped my pants in front of my cousin and one of our other friends. I actually wrote a story based off of a different memory that I posted on here.
