I think I’m kind of insulting myself with that quote…
Hey, everyone! I’m back with another Q&A session. Ready?
Dominique asked: If the entire world were coming to an end and you were about to morph into space with your best friend to save both of your lives and you could only bring one thing with you, what would it be and why?
I’m going to answer this one a little tricksy. I can leave with my best friend (who just so happens to be the hubby) and take one thing with me—so I’m going to send my hubby, replace myself with one of my sons and have my other son be the “one thing” to take with me. Or not with me, as it were. I’d stay behind and watch the three most important things to me escape their doom. And I’d call it a good deal. =]
C.K. Bryant asked: What one decision did you make, right or wrong, that you wish you knew the results or consequences of before you made it?
Hands down: taking *cough* my older sister’s car and wrecking it. Sorry Sneck. =P (Yeah, I only had a learner’s permit at the time. Truthfully, I was lucky to have lived—and I don’t mean because of the wreck. ;)
M. Gray asked: What books and movies have influenced your writing the most?
The first books that come to mind as influencing my writing the most are The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, Dragonsong by Anne McCaffery, and The Dark Horse series by Mary H. Herbert. These books, combined, gave me the inspiration to write my first book at 14. I revisit them every year and remember that first, tiny glow in my heart. It never fails to reignite my passion. It is a tragedy to me that I will never get to tell Mr. Jordan, in person, what his books did for me. (And in case you can’t tell, my genre is totally fantasy.)
As for movies, I’m inspired by movies that make me think or that have great character appeal. I tend to like the darker, grittier characters but I love all kinds of movies.
And the last Q of the day is from Windy A., who asked: When are we having lunch?
When you feel better, my friend. =D
That’s it for today. If you have any questions you’d like to ask me, feel free to do so in the comments (or you can email me to the address listed in the sidebar). My question of the day for you is stolen from Mary:
What Movies/Books inspire you?
All my best,
