1. Book or movie and why?
Depends on the time of day. I typically read during the day, unless I'm trying to finish a book quickly, then I'll read at night too. My husband and I enjoy watching movies together in the evenings.
2. Real book or e-book?
Real book, all the way. I don't even own an e-reader yet - shocking, I know.
3. Funniest thing you've done in the past five years?
A couple years ago I went out to eat at a nice Japanese restaurant with some of my gal pals from college. It was one of those places where the cook makes your meal right there at your table. He was frying up shrimp and chucked the tails onto our plates to be funny. Not being a shrimp connoisseur, I put the tail in my mouth. My friends got a good chuckle.
4. How would your best friend describe you?
Hmm. Caring, hard-working, and hopefully, real - that I'm myself around others.
5. How do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?
With my writing, I try to imagine how I'd think/feel or react - other times I try to dig into the characters and decipher how they would think/feel or react.
6. Favorite kind of car and why?
A vintage car, like this 1930s roadster or this 1957 Chevy. My husband and I have even talked about restoring old cars like these some day.
7. Would your choice party be a catered meal or a BBQ out back?
Definitely a BBQ out back - that way I wouldn't feel bad about using paper plates and cutting down on the dishes!
8. What's your favorite season and why?
Fall. Love the colors on the mountains and trees, and the feeling of change in the air.
9. What specific lesson have you learned - spiritual, educational, occupational?
Worry and stress do nothing to actually solve a problem. If only I could remember that!
10. Besides writing, what's your favorite thing to do when you get extra time?
Digital scrapbooking or reading.
11. What's one place you can be found at least one time every week?
I was also tagged by Melissa Sugar in the Lucky 7 MEME tag. The rules are to go to the 77th page of my manuscript, find the 7th line and copy down the next 7 lines/sentences. For fun, I pulled out my only real attempt at writing a contemporary romance, which alas, I never finished.
“Six it is.” He grinned, and my pulse sped up. “Good night, Eva. See you Monday at staff meeting.” Stepping up beside me, he brushed my cheek with his warm lips, then he walked to his car.
Now it's your turn. In lieu of tagging, you can answer any of these fun questions from above: Are you a fan of real books or e-books? What's your dream car? What's one place you can be found at least once a week?
