    @livgiordano Hi Olivia My name is Michelle (my username gives that away eh) I’m the sister of Rebekah aka Bekah. How long have you been a member of Story Embers? and how long have you been writing?

    • Hi Michelle! It’s so awesome to meet you. 🙂 I’ve heard bits and pieces about you from Bekks, so it’s great that we’re finally talking!

      Btw…how did you know that I knew Bekah? I’m just curious. 😉

      I’ve been writing for…two years now? And I’ve been a member of SE since it began, so a little over a year ago. And before that I was part of Kingdom Pen, which is basically this site but more geared to only a young adult audience.

      I haven’t been focusing on writing as much during this current season, although I really love it. I write primarily fiction, with a dash of poetry and journaling thrown in. Also…if you want a little bit of info about me and to stalk me and all of that, you can check out my blog here:

      How long have you been writing? What is your favorite genre to write in? Did you just join SE? And I’d definitely love to get to know you a bit better. 😀

      • So sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Well I have seen you around SE and I know you from my sister because she is my sister and all:) Thank you so much for the birthday message. It meant a lot to me. I have been writing for 2 years. Genre I write in? that’s hard because I write pretty much everything I have lots of story ideas I’m working on. At the moment I’m working on an Italian novel called Trovato and I’m also writing a children’s book series based on my stuffed animals:D I would love to get to know you too. Stalk you eh;) I will absolutely check out your blog, I will go you one better and follow your blog. Are you on SE often? also, what’s your favorite book and movie?

      • That’s all right! I know you have a life. 😉 Oh okay! That makes sense.

        Aww I’m glad you liked it! *hugs*

        Nice!! I’ve also been writing for about two years as well. Ooh the Italian novel sounds really interesting.

        Aww thank you! I’d appreciate you following along!

        I’m really not on SE as much as I would like to be, primarily just because I use YWW more.

        Favorite book? I have so, so many favorites. One that I read recently that would definitely be up there is The Scorpio Races. Oh my goodness that was absolutely amazing. And for movies, this technically isn’t one, but I love Lord of the Rings. And the Giver movie is amazing as well.

        I have a whole list of book recommendations, but it might get a bit too long. 😛

        What are some of your favorite books or movies? What do you like to do in your free time, besides write?

      • Gotta support bloggers:) I want to join the Young Writers Workshop but the only thing holding me back is the money thing. Do you use google chats? we could chat on there. I like doing origami and I like drawing. I don’t think I could tell you my favorite movies or books because I love pretty much everything I’ve watched and read (except for hallmark movies lol)

      • Ahh gotcha! Definitely agree that the money is a big obstacle.

        Do you mean Hangouts? If so, then yes. I don’t feel comfortable sharing my email on here since it’s a public site, but you could definitely get it from Bekah.

        Haha that’s totally understandable. Hallmark can be *sorta* fun, even if the plot is a bit too predictable.
