For Me, Really?





  Elizabeth at http://eseckman.blogspot.com offered me this award, and I'm happy to accept it. Thanks Elizabeth! 
Here are my answers to Elizabeth's Questions:

a.        What naive misconception did you have about writing books when you started? I thought once I finished my first draft, fireworks would rain from the sky and publishers would flood my yard, begging to sign my book! Well, maybe I wasn't that naive, but you get the idea, right?

b.      What is your favorite part of writing? I love it when the story pours out, and the characters fight to bust out of my head.
c.       What is the one thing you would change about publishing and why? At the moment, I can't think of anything.

d.      Do you have an inspiration list? 1.I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. 2. Commit to The Lord whatever you do and your plans will prosper. 3. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

e.       If you were a super villain, what would be your fatal flaw? I'd be cutting too many people too many breaks, so I'd never be able to pull off a dastardly deed.

f.       If you were a super hero, what would be your super power? Ooooh, I'd be invisible. Can you imagine the possibilities?

g.      If you could go on a trip to a tropical island but you didn’t get to pack anything before you left, would you go? Sure, I'd just make friends and borrow clothes. Friend's clothes are always cuter, anyway, right?


I believe I'll pass the award on to Livia Peterson at http://leaveittolivia.blogspot.com

      And it's awesome to know you feel the same way about "d." Without those promises, I'd never make it through a day! :)

  7. Thanks, Elise!

    Yeah, I'd be in sooo much trouble w/that super power. The temptations would be too great to pass up. :)

  8. They didn't die for your first manuscript either? Good to see that I wasn't the only one going into this with huge misconceptions. And I love your inspiration. Without that, we're nowhere. Congrats on the award!

    1. Hey, T!

      Gah, from experience, I've decided when writers get serious about writing, something happens to our brains. It's like all rational thought disappears, lol. Good thing it returns, or we'd be in trouble. And you're 100% right, without God, we got zilch. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  9. Yep, generosity would be a fatal flaw for a super villain.

      Welcome aboard this crazy ship! If I ever want to be a villian, I'll need to go to school, lol. :)
