Tagging?

Nokia's Tag Your It promo

Definitely NOT a typo! 😀

Hmmm, I’ve been tagged. Twice. I’ve heard the term “tagging” in many ways. “Tag, your it” from when I was a kid playing it/tag. Tail gating. Spray painting your class colors on underclassmen during Spirit Week. Spray paining gang symbols on public property. Gettin’ sum. Even tagging a recently taken picture with your GeoLocation data. You know…all those things went through my head when I saw that I was “tagged”. But, no. When I went to Yikici’sJacob Adams‘, Vickie’s, and Anna Mittower’s blogs tagging me, I quickly realized it was a quick way to get to know you, just asking random questions. I’ve been mulling this over in my head for a while now.

I’m not to keen on blog awards or things of this nature. But since Rachael Harrie’s Write Campaign is now in full swing, I guess it’s a good time to just give you all a piece of my personality. 🙂 So, here goes:

 

Questions from Yikici Questions from Jason
1.   Where did the inspiration for writing your WIP come from?
an image popped into my head of a girl and she just kept talking to me for WIP#1 and WIP#2, well, I just wanted to make a story about it.2.   Any interesting tales about your muse?
She took a 20 year sabbatical.3.   Your muse; fab/frustrating/inbetweener?
both, all three!4.   Why do you write?
therapy. Easier to listen to the voices and do as they say when I write it instead of “acting it out”.  If I don’t I’d go insane.

5.   If you could enhance one of your senses, which would it be?
Taste

6.   When you are not creating what do you do?
destroy? Is this a trick question?

7.   Ask yourself a question –now answer it.
Want some Redbull? Don’t mind if I do!

8.   How long is a piece of string?
as long as it needs to be

9.   What was the last dream you saw?
that’s gonna have to remain private! 😀

10.  In a film about your life, which actor would play you?
ha! who’d want to watch a movie about my life?

11.  What’s your motto in life and also your work ethics?
Keep Smiling. Everything happens for a reason. Take pride in everything you do, even when everyone pisses on it and moves up cuz they’ve EF’d up.

1.) What is one author you can’t refuse?
If it’s good, I’m gonna read it, and more from that author. But if it’s bad, once is enough. Doesn’t matter who.2.) Do you listen to music while writing or prefer silence?
Well, I’ve tried both. I work most of the time in silence…or background noise if you can call that silence. But I just researched something for one of my WIPs and found that I could complete the scene while I listened to what I was looking for.3.) To you, what is the hardest thing about writing?
kicking that little voice in my head that keeps telling me “You’re not good enough!”

4.) What is something that happened in your childhood that influenced your writing today?
can’t really answer that.

5.) Movie night: Comedy, Sci-Fi, Romance, or Horror?
Not big on Chick-flicks. Dig the Sci-fi and horror. Psychological thrillers too! Comedy…depends.

taking the “r” from Library and putting it in wash! My dad does this all the time! Grrrr

7.) Favorite Season?
Spring

too many to say

9.) If could time travel (without the ability to influence the past), what time period would you visit?
any time, any where, just give me a Tardis!

10.) Would you live on the moon or Mars if ever given a chance? Why or why not?
Summer on the Moon, Winter on Mars. Just cuz!

11.) What is the biggest thing that scares you?
The downfall of our country. We’re closer than we realize! But that can be left for another post if anyone is interested.

    I’ve been tagged, too and found it interesting to see how organized you did yours. Great job! Mine won’t be as good. I’m saving it to go up Tuesday, a regular blogging day for me. I got tagged by two people and am only going to answer one’s questions because I did it a few days ago.

    Loved getting to know you better. Thanks for following me. Thanks for reading! 🙂

  2. Comment by Brenna Braaten:

    I am so with you there on your two vices. I don’t think I could make it through without those.

  3. Comment by yikici:

    Love your answers -especially the one about the moon and mars and just cuz! Lol! Rightly said; no need for reasons. 🙂

    And nope the ‘what do you do when not creating’ is not a trick question; having said that I’m now intrigued what you destroy… 🙂
