Sher, from @Sher a Hart, has coined a new verb for us, to meme. Well she memed me good n proper and the result lies below, for all to see. The questions took a surprising amount of reflection.
If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?
Pain, a world beyond exhaustion, disbelief, pride, elation….. the first time I crossed a marathon finishing line in the Vienna (Austria) marathon, having run all the way, at age 43, was one of the greatest moments of achievement for me! We really can achieve so much more than we ever, ever imagine possible!
If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
Listening to legalistic doctrine as a young adult, about identity, with repercussions I can still feel today. I do wish I had had the guts to follow my inner convictions at the time. Woah, this sounds heavy. The plus on this is, as I was reading the Plot Whisperer today, and once again trying to pluck up the courage to start a novel-length YA manuscript, a plot started to germinate with some of this conflict at its heart. Nothing is wasted. No experience is ever in vain, if we can grow from it and move beyond it, and maybe even share it !
What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?
No idea if you guys have even heard of the New Avengers? But I have been compared to Joanna Lumley on more than one occasion. Though, OMG, I would love to have her legs ! Here’s a quick youtube intro. for the unitiated. I always saw myself as a MI5 type of gal !
If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would you choose?
Pass. Couldn’t live with the guilt !
Name one habit you want to change in yourself.
The clocks went back last night here, signifying winter hibernation for me. With the reduced daylight hours, I really do tend to go into hibernation mode until spring, apart from some weekend snowshoeing, and I want to make a concerted effort to leave the den a little more often this winter.
Why do you blog? (Answer in one sentence)
When people think Miss Marple, I want them to think great children’s books, not tweedy, grey-haired spinster detective !
Name at least 3 people to send this to:
I am going to name three bloggers I have been loving getting to know through the Write Campaign these past two months.
Gail Shepherd @Paradoxy (Gail has been widening my YA repertoire)
Maeve Frazier @Lollipop’s Cottage (another foodie, yes!)
Rachel Harrie @Rach Writes (we all love Rach!)
