Awesome, beautiful blogging friend Melissa Tagg, tagged me! The rules of being tagged are simple: answer the questions provided and then tag 11 others.
1. Book or movie and why?
Hmmm, this one is hard for me, because I love both! Now that I have been writing, I am tend to analyze as I read now, so it is not the escape it used to be. I still love books, but to escape, I’d have to go with a movie.
2. Real book or e-book?
I love my Kindle and the ease of it, but there is just something about turning real paper pages that gets me. Also, you don’t get the beautiful covers in color on my Kindle. I miss that.
3. Funniest thing you’ve done in the past 5 years?
This is probably not the funniest thing, but last weekend I was at a baby shower and since I am the preacher’s wife, I got asked to say the prayer. It was the first time I have ever gone completely blank during a prayer. Seriously, I actually said…”Well, oh my goodness, um, yeah, I can’t think of what I want to say…” Awkward, but I totally laughed at myself, which got everyone laughing too. Hopefully, I have given freedom to those who feel like they CANNOT pray!
4. How would your best friend describe you?
Happy…most of the time, goofy…alot of the time, blessed…on a daily basis, forgetful…yeah, all of the time. I always forget to call her on the days we schedule to go out for coffee. I need a personal assistant to keep me organized.
5. How do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?
In writing, I tend to make my character go through what I have gone through or am going through. It’s just part of the whole “write what you know” thing. When I watch movies, I am always the gorgeous heroine with the fabulous figure and witty comebacks. I’m sure I even do my own stunts.
6. Favorite kind of car and why?
A Jaguar all the way, especially the older models. They used to be so incredibly cool and indulgent. I would look fabulous with my graying hair blowing in the breeze while riding through the streets of Fort Worth. *snort*
7. Would your choice party be a catered meal or a BBQ out back?
I love the relaxed feel of a BBQ, but oh, to not have to cook…that would be awesome!
8. What’s your favorite season and why?
Autumn, because I adore the vivid colors and the crisp, cool air. Plus, an added feature being I can wear more layers and not expire from the internal heater I carry around with me.
9. What specific lesson have you learned – Spiritual, educational, occupational?
Spiritual: Rest in the security that I am in God’s hands, and they are big enough to carry me through whatever lies ahead.
Educational: I need to keep learning if I want to be smart and successful.
Occupational: I need to write every day or else loose the momentum to keep going.
10. Besides writing, what’s your favorite thing to do when you get some extra time?
Watch movies or TV series on Netflix, read the massive amount of books on my Kindle, or take a nap.
11. What’s one place you can be found at least one time every week?
Redbox. I love to go and get a movie for a dollar. It feels so futuristic to put in my card and pop out a movie.
