Liebster Award

Well, I've been tagged with the Liebster Award again.  This time by Emmarayn Redding.  http://emmaraynredding.blogspot.com/

Here are the eleven random facts about me.

1.  I have been using GIMP a lot these days.

2.  I am reading Gilbert Morris' book, How To Write (And Sell) A Christian Novel.

4.  I am still in school.

3.  Yesterday, my hair smelled like Apple Cider Vinegar.  (It was intentional, too.)

5.  I disagree with Kurt Vonnegut on the usage of semicolons; they are quite practical in many cases.

5.  Did you know I'm numbering this wrong?

6.  I'm hoping to do July NaNoWriMo, if I can finish plotting my story by that time.  So far it's taken me 2.5 weeks to plot less than a third of it (and I've been working everyday at it, too).  Sooo . . .

8.  I am watching the ISIS CRISIS (hehe) intently.  Though, with only 400 million, ISIS is clearly not the richest terrorist organization in the world.  Apple is.

7.  I know what the meaning of Brobdingnagian is.  It's a real word.

9.  I will go to a camp in a few weeks.

10.  I am currently sun burnt.

11.  My hair is curled in the front and partially spiked on the sides.  At least my family says I don't look like Caesar anymore. o_o

1.  Would you feel more nervous... a) taking an extensive test filled with difficult questions, or b) Stand up in front of a large auditorium filled with people and give a speech/sing a song/perform a play?

B, although I've been discovering lately that being an author is not just about writing.  Yes, it's also about giving speeches. :-O

2.  If you were to get stuck in a fictional universe from the books/movies that you like, which would you choose?

I would choose the Chronicles of Prydain world.  I like its setting.

3.  Once there, what would you do to make a living and survive?

A king's bard. :P

4.  If you were to meet the main cast of that story, would you get along with the characters?

I don't think Taran or Eilonwy are particularly disagreeable, so yes.

5.  Would they get along with you? 


6.  If you were to become a private detective, what kind would you be?  The cool, collected, and emotionally removed Sherlock Holmes-type?  The friendly, charming, hands-on investigating Nancy Drew-type?  Opra-loving Morse?  Depressed but determined Wallander?

. . .  Never heard of any of them but Holmes.  And Holmes is way to . . . inhuman for me. :P

I'd be that detective who never finds anything out in the end.

7.  Would you have a sidekick?  Or maybe just a friend on equal grounds?

Sidekick.  Someone to do all my work for me.

8.  Given a choice between the Grinch and a sea-sick crocodile, which would you take?

The Grinch, who I would then feed to the sea-sick crocodile.

9.  If you're a writer, answer question a.  If you're not, answer question b.

Because I'm a rule breaker, I'm going to answer both. :D

-A)  If you were given the opportunity to meet one of your main hero and villain from your book, with them knowing that you were the author, would you want to meet them?

Oh yes.  Neither of them hate me.

I think.

-B) Do you know what pneumenoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis means?  And DON'T CHEAT by looking it up first!  ;)  Break it down by the root words.

This quite an elementary question!  After carefully observing all such root sayings, I have conducted a suitable answer.  It is the title of the Ultra Microscopic Pneumonia of the Silicon Valley Volcano Disease.
Now that I HAVE looked it up, I find it means something else entirely.  I am sorry, dear friends.  I have failed you.

10.   Are you fond of musicals?  If so, what are your favorites?

Nope. :P

11.  If you were given the opportunity to play any character from a book/movie/play/musical, who would you want to play and from what show?

I seriously can't come up with anyone . . . hmmm . . .

  1. Nice facts/answers! I definitely agree with your choice of which world you'd go to. Out of curiosity, why did your hair smell like apple cider vinegar?


Have a question? Comment? Ramble? I love to hear it all!
