A couple of weeks ago, the lovely Jennings nominated me for a blog award!
Thank you, thank you!
Now there are eleven questions I have to answer and eleven people I have to tag. Considering the last time I got an award and actually tagged people, I got in trouble, I’m just going to refrain from tagging anybody, okay? Call it self-preservation.
If you want to answer the questions below on your own blog (or heck, in the comments), consider yourself tagged. If you’d rather not, then congratulations, you’re safe…FOR NOW.
1. Name a book you would read over and over again?
Every time I pick up one of Courtney Milan’s books, I end up reading the whole damn thing. Same with Loretta Chase, particularly Lord of Scoundrels. If you see me using those as examples of good things to do with writing romance, it’s because I’ve read them so many times I have them memorized.
Once I get through my current stack of unread books, I’d like to go back and read the Mistborn trilogy again. Because it’s awesome.
2. If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be?
Wish one would be to have my house completely paid for. (NO MORTGAGE WOO!)
Wish two would be to spend some quality time with these fine gentlemen:
Wish three would be for three more wishes.
3. Who was your favorite teacher and why?
I was fortunate to have a lot of cool teachers in school. Mrs. Taylor in fifth grade and Mrs. Britt for sixth-grade history probably made the biggest impressions during my formative years. Writing-wise, I learned a TON during the professional writing program at OU, mostly thanks to Professor Chester.
4. Where is your favorite vacation spot?
It would be a toss-up between Hawaii and Kea, which was a lovely little island off the coast of Greece. What can I say? I like beaches.
5. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Dusting. Farking dusting. I can count on one hands the number of times I’ve done it since moving into this house 18 months ago.
6. What is your favorite dessert?
Probably creme brulee. NOM.
7. What is your least favorite mode of transportation?
I once took a bus to New York. I would not want to repeat that trip.
8. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
In no particular order: Lawyer, teacher, illustrator, author, spaceship architect.
9. If money were no object, where would you live and why?
I would live right where I am. I really love Tulsa, and all my friends are either here or within easy driving distance.
I would totally keep vacation houses in Seattle and Hawaii, though.
10. What is your dream career?
Pretty close to what I’m doing right now, actually. If I could bump it so that I was doing webdev part-time and writing the rest of the time, I would be a happy camper.
11. What movie do you flat-out refuse to watch, no matter how good people say it is?
Just about anything that could qualify as a horror movie/slasher flick. I’ve never seen The Exorcist, Scream, or anything involving Freddy and Jason. I hate scary movies.
