Blog Tag

Tag, You're It!
This post written in response to GBE 2 week #54 prompt - self; and also because I was tagged in Blog Tag.

     I was tagged in Blog Tag by Kat over at My View Through Kat Eyes
Here are the rules of the game according to Kat:
     "Each per­son must post 11 things about them­selves on their blog. Answer the ques­tions the tag­ger set for you in their post and cre­ate 11 new ques­tions for the peo­ple you tag to answer. You have to choose 11 peo­ple to tag and link them on the post. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her. No tag backs."

Eleven Things About Me. 

1.   I am filling this out because I adore Kat.

2.   When I dream, it is most often lucid.

3.   I believe that coffee is best served fresh and strong.

4.  Gardening is a wonderful way to plant my thoughts.

5.   I've been known to rush out on a conversation, so I don't miss out on a great sunset.

6.   I am fond of dragons, elephants, tigers (all big kitties), dragonflies, and butterflies.

7.   I collect spoons ;-)

8.   I love to take pictures of nature (well okay really anything that catches my eye hehehhe).

9.   I write every day.

10.  I'm learning to play the piano

11.  I make my own rules as I go.

Considering answer number 11, it will not surprise you that I did not tag 11 people with this. I am just flat out too danged busy lately to take the time to get that done. So, I am answering the questions, and will leave this open for anyone who wants to do the same. 

Answering Kat's questions.

1.  Why did you start a blog?
Because I thought it would be fun to share with other writers, get feedback on the technique, and share conversation with like-minded people.

2.  When watching a movie, do you prefer comedy or drama?
It would depend on my mood. I will reach for drama most often; however, that is because most of the "comedy" I see is just not funny to me. I don't like bathroom humour, or ridiculous humour, and most of what I see is just that.

3.  What author, dead or living, would you most like to spend an afternoon with?
Stephen King (I have no desire to spend an afternoon with the dead) ;-)

4.  Describe yourself in 3 words.
Alive, curious, persistent.

5.  What book are you currently or have recently read?
I started a Nora Roberts trilogy, then set that aside to read "Save the Cat" on screenplay writing.

6.  Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Sometimes both, it depends on what I am working on, and whether I have to be up early the next day.

7.  What would be your fantasy dream job, excluding writer?
I have a tendency to move my "dreams" to reality. I see myself writing in a house with large windows, and many trees. To exclude the biggest part of me, would be like asking me to dream without thinking, it's not possible.

8.  If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Where my closest family is. I love them and would be happiest where they are.

9.  Favorite childhood memory?
Eating dry fruit loops on the floor in my gramma's house when I was about 2.

10. What one word could change the world if more people believed in it?
Living. Most people start planning for death from the moment they are aware enough to know the possibility exists, and continue to do so until they achieve that moment. If more people were focused on living… really LIVING, it would change the world in wonderful ways.

11.  What is your biggest pet-peeve?


  1. Aaawwww thank you ~k~. I adore you too and I love getting a look into the real you.

  2. nice to know more about you! Stephen King, huh? That's bound to be one interesting lunch:)

    1. grinZ Yeah, I admire Stephen King's ability for drawing the reader in with details that belong in a screen play, and pulling it off so eloquently, so often.


  3. I already adore your words, now I know more of the woman on the inside. Wonderful. My favorite is the house with the windows.

    1. When I am there, I will fly you in so you can enjoy them too :-)

  4. you remember being 2? amazing

    I know so much about you as a writer but so little about you as a erson away from the pen/pencil

    This was a terrific snapshot...more please

    1. I do remember many things... more like still shots though, no streaming.

      And if you could, what is it you would like to know Lance? :-)

  5. Nice to know you better. I love fresh coffee too but oftentimes, I forget I have coffee when I get too busy, it gets cold and microwaved many times over before I finish it, if I remember it at all.
    How true about comedies these days. So I only get to way slam-bang films, for which I have no expectations and are fast paced. and cartoons too. The Last Airbender series is nice.

    Good luck with the piano. :-)

    1. The first two cups for me, don't have a chance to get cold ;-)

      Cartoons are great, I may never outgrow them. I liked the Last Airbender, but I only saw the first one.

      Nice to have your company in here.


I appreciate your comments, and constructive criticism is welcome!
