11 Questions from Karen:

1. Why did you start blogging?

Short answer: Because I wanted to prove to myself I could.

2. What is your happiest memory from this past year?

Finally finishing a story I’ve been writing since 2008. (Only the first draft, but, hey, it was a looong one!)

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

New Zealand. It looks like such a beautiful country. Of course, my answer to this question changes on a daily basis, depending on what I’ve seen recently. I want to see as much of the world as possible.

4.  If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Right now, breakfast. I love what I have at breakfast. There have been times I have been tempted to eat it for every meal.

5. What is the one thing that you cannot leave the house without?

My notebook.

6. Have you ever been told that you look like a celebrity? If so, which one?

No.

7. What is your dream job?

Author. 🙂

8. If you could be any fictional character, who would it be and why?

Willow, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She goes from overlooked nerd to amazing woman. She finds her confidence, and her power. I really think she rivals Buffy for strongest character on that show.

9. What would your superpower be?

To stop time! I would be able to stop in whenever I needed to just catch up on something, or when I needed to vent and scream at someone (they would be frozen and when they unfroze I would be calm again 🙂 ). It would be a very handy power.

10. What do you miss most about being a kid?

Being able to eat what I want without worrying about it. :/

11. What would the title of your autobiography be?

One Fight After Another

My 11 questions are the ones above.

  1. Thanks for nominating me. 🙂
    I don’t like salt either. People think I’m nuts when I order fries unsalted. Some try to give me packets of salt.

    Congrats on finishing your first draft! That feels so good! Freezing time would be handy or you could just move really fast so it just seemed like everyone was stopped, then you could travel quickly too! (I take super powers very seriously.)

    1. Het that’s a good idea, moving really quickly would be handy… though I might get a bit dizzy… I’d need some sort of inbuilt stabilizer or something…

  2. Thanks for the nomination! Since I’ve done this before, I won’t be doing a post on my blog, but I always love answering the questions!
    1. Why did you start blogging?
    I read allll the time and no one I know really reads as much as I do so I wanted somewhere I could talk/fangirl over/complain about the books I read.

    2. What is your happiest memory from this past year?
    I don’t know about happiest of the whole year, so I’m just going to go with today – I took the day off of work to spend time with my Aunt and Grandma who were up for a visit 🙂

    3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    I would love to go to Italy

    4. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    Pizza. I can always go for pizza.

    5. What is the one thing that you cannot leave the house without?
    My Nook!.

    6. Have you ever been told that you look like a celebrity? If so, which one?
    Not really

    7. What is your dream job?
    Private Investigator. I would go on many crazy adventures and then write fiction crime books that are “based on true stories”.

    8. If you could be any fictional character, who would it be and why?
    Lorelei Gilmore because I’ve been watching Gilmore Girls lately and who DOESN’T want to be her? (side note: I realized that I am now closer in age to Lorelei than Rory and it kind of freaked me out!)

    9. What would your superpower be?
    I used to joke with an old roommate that I would love to wash and dry things really fast. I am incapable of taking a quick shower and it takes FOREVER to dry my air. Also my washer and dryer are pretty old and you have to run clothes through a couples cycles to get them dry.

    10. What do you miss most about being a kid?
    Being able to stay up late and still be functional the next day!

    11. What would the title of your autobiography be?
    The Longest Day of My Life

    Thanks again for nominating me! I really appreciate it!
