Pass it on

Sending my pet fish to do the dirty work

Usually I like to spend the weekends reading others blogs and do not post, but today I got caught up in tag so here are the answers to probably more than my share of questions.

You see, I am confused and I have no point of reference. I have played tag in this “Web Pool” before but the rules were a bit different. Link to the person that tagged you, and the people you tag and pass around the same questions. My busy schedule has kept me out of the loop for this ”Platform Tag”  I have not been playing, so sorry if you have tagged me before and I have raised my hands in surrender. Since this is a good way to get familiar with other platform builders I decided to be a good sport and pass the torch by answering the questions given by Traci Kenworth and K.S. Collier. I have also added some of my own. If you are tagged, feel free to answer the ones you like and pass them on to others. Since I seem to have no rules to follow, how many is up to you. Pass on only the questions you want answered, answer only the questions you want to answer.

I love these questions. I am normally a pantser, but I am learning the wisdom of having an outline when I write. I love chocolate, too, but I can no longer afford my horrible sweet tooth. ;)

If I could go anywhere, it would be Paris. I have never been and yet ever since I first saw pictuers of Notre Came and the Eiffel Tower in my thrid grade geography book, I have been in love with that city. Of course, my love only deepened as I discovered Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Stein.

By the way, I love the new look. It's gorgeous. :)

These things are terribly time consuming. I don't do them well but have no problems sending peeps to other peep's blogs.

Claire Hennessy said...

Wow, that is a lot of questions! Thanks for the tag and I will do my best to answer some, if not all, of the Q's. I have another award + Q's that I need to answer as well, so maybe I will combine them! Arrrgh, not enough hours in the day! Nice to meet you :)

It's always so nice to learn something personal about bog friends. I commend you though because I find these so challenging because like this one they always have so many questions.
I absolutely love Lord Of The Rings too. I can't even tell you how many times I've watched it.

Krista M said...

I love The Lord of the Rings!!!!! Great choice in favorite author and story! And I love the movies!! :)

LOTR is what hooked me on reading at age 9. Chocolate hooked me for life too. I also got tagged from two directions so I'm going to combine questions in the interests of having some time left to write. Yeah, that thing we all try to do. I always get interrupted.

Julia King said...

By golly, you love LOTR. I sure do too. I should watch all of them in a row one of these weekends. Fun to get to know you.

I will answer my questions here since I've already been tagged a couple times. Thanks for picking me!

Do you use Word Verification and why? I did but decided not to a couple weeks ago. I figure I can delete any posts I don't want on there.

When visiting a Blog what bothers you most about the format? Hot pink or colors that are hard to see.

Do you have your email address listed on your profile, if not, why? Nope, just never thought of doing that. Maybe I will now.

How often do you post? Twice a week, Tuesday and Friday. I can't do any more than that.

Are you on Facebook or Google plus? Yes for both, but only for private on FB and I hardly ever use Google plus. It is super hard to keep up on so many social networking engines.

How often do you check your stats? I used to check them all the time. Now not so much.

What influences what you write about? Lots of things. Fleating thoughts, words, experiences, dreams... Just depends.

What is the most important thing that happened to you last year? I got an agent! Wahoo!

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Back to the Cinque Terre on the Italian Riveira. Since I've already been there, I'd choose somewhere else warm like Hawaii. If I could go anywhere regardless of my wanting it to be warm, I'd go to Egypt.

If you could talk to a dead person about writing, who would that be? Ayn Rand. I loved her book Atlas Shrugged. She was a brillian writer.

What one thing in the grocery store do you always want to buy? Lots of ice cream. I try to be good not doing so.

Thanks for the tag again!

I'm sure your husband is very glad you did do him. Wait, that sounds wrong...

Thanks for sharing this fun post, girl. So great to read more about you ;)
