1. If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Why?
To be purely selfish right now it would be the power to stop time. FOr those of you who know me, you’ll understand this implicitly. What i do wonder is this: what happens when those superheroes unfreeze time and it begins moving again? In my world at the moment I am playing this is ‘free’ time. hey…if we’re dreaming…
2. Who is your style icon?
hmm, huummm, ho. ummm. let’s see…well, after baby I’m kind of trying to figure that one out myself. does that imply i knew it before baby?? anw, i was told once that my style is carrie bradshaiwsh – although i really really doubt it, and if so not intentional at all.
I had to come back in and edit this post, because I realized this question could apply to my writing as well, but my answer is still as vague. I cannot in any way say that my writing style emulates one person. I have been told my writing is similar to Margaret Atwood on more than one occasion (and even better! by one sweet reader, although I don’t see it), and one agent compared me to Ann Tyler (whom i still have not read – yes, I know, i know). How about you – any writers you’d compare your own style to?
3. What is your favorite quote?
i‘ll get back to you on this one!
4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
i wrote a short that was first pov (most of my shorts are) through the eyes of an elderly lady, holocaust survivor. Someone read it before meeting me, and when she did meet me she stared at me for minutes before talking, finally saying she thought i was an old lady not a youngen. i think that compliment has seen me through many a rough writer moments of mine.
5. What playlist/cd is in your CD player/iPod right now?
am i the only female in her 30s who does not have a playlist? i will tell you that the majority of my dvds at the moment are still the wiggles, or some other kids tunes. although for the last while their favorite song has been young artists’ for Haiti, waving’ flag.
6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
night owl! but, i will admit 3 kids later i am finally beginning to appreciate the quiet of the early morning (as long as I’m alone and the rest of the house is sleeping. now when did that happen??)
7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
cats, i think. i do know that i am not a hamster or bird or fish person.
8. What is the meaning behind your blog name
