Here there be dragons...

"I'm telling you stories. Trust me." - Winterson

Two words, for now...


Posted this image on my author FB page today and was going to write my answer there...  But then I realized that, as with the 6-word stories, there are too many options.   So here goes -- please feel free to add to the list in the comments :)

Okay I might've stolen that last one.   But I had to end this insanity somehow.  And that was avoiding all the "don'ts" that came to mind.  Going for positive here.  And pg ;)  And ignoring the completely silly things *g*  

Your list?




What would you say?

New experience today -- I was interviewed.  Hahaha, a first for everything.  Woohoo!   Thanks to Aaron Speca for the experience.  Fairly entertaining.  Slightly awkward.  And now my answers are forever online.
Oh dear *g*
Forever grateful the interview wasn't on camera!
The writing and book related questions were no problem.  I had to think about a couple but it's all fairly factual.  The personal ones though, made me pause.  Some related to writing -- what was I most surprised about?  Which of my characters would I want to meet?   The first one had multiple answers, so I went with the one that's struck me the strongest.  The other would depend on my mood at any given moment *g*   But most interesting was the rapid fire "10 + 1" questions at the end.  How would you answer these?  Really, I want to know -- comment or fb answers!
