This and That For Saturday

"To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time." -- Leonard Bernstein

Next week is gonna be a busy one for me. Because launching the website for LASR wasn't enough -- with all the contests, author interviews, and more -- I signed up to be the guest moderator at The Wild Rose Press author/reader loop. At the time, that move made sense... it's one year since I signed my first contract with them so I figured it was a great time to celebrate, and we hadn't even come up with the idea for LASR.

Now? Not so much. I need a daily question to post -- seven in total -- and I have three. Any ideas? They can be related to writing, or not. Serious or funny. Some ladies have asked about phobias, or most exotic place you've lived. I could use some help, folks!


Hey, all. If you've happened to read my latest stories, Pregnancy Cravings and Magic (and heck, even if you've read my earlier work) and haven't left feedback/comments at TWRP, why haven't you? Did you like it? Then go tell someone :-)

C'mon, please?


The official end of Pillar Place: Monarch came yesterday, with the hatching of Clarisse. She had some issues, didn't cling very well and fell a couple of times -- this was one of those cases where I wonder if she would have survived had she been in the wild. Regardless, she DID survive and flew off in the early afternoon. Gorgeous.

Pillar Place: Swallowtail ends on a cliffhanger -- is Jill still alive in her pupa? Will she hatch in the spring? Or is it all a cruel hoax, and she died at some point in her development? Stay tuned for next May... the season premier of Pillar Place: Swallowtail.


This one's for Judy, who says I'm a "Type A++" ---

You Have A Type A Personality

You are hyper, energetic, and always on the mood
You tend to succeed at everything you attempt
And if you don't succeed at first, you quickly climb your way to the top!

You could be called a workaholic, but you also make time for fun
As long as it's high energy and competitive, you're interested
You have the perfect personality for business and athletic success

I love that Bernstein quote.

That is a great quote. And I've loved hearing about Pillar Place. That's wonderful news about Clarisse, and I have my fingers crossed for Jill.

Jen said...

How about "What was the biggest transition you've experienced in your life?" for one of the topics? That should get folks going...

It's probably a good time for pillar place to shut down for the season, given everything else that you've got going on!

Here's a question: "At what point do you decide to give up your job to write full-time?" This is assuming you have/had another job before writing full-time?

Great news about Clarisse. You really have to wait till next spring for Jill to hatch?

As I suspected, You Have A Type B+ Personality
You're a pro at going with the flow
You love to kick back and take in everything life has to offer
A total joy to be around, people crave your stability.

While you're totally laid back, you can have bouts of yperactivity.
Get into a project you love, and you won't stop until it's done
You're passionate - just selective about your passions

Um,I like the question of "what made you decide to write full time?"
I received type A- personality.

Good news about Pillar Place.

Have a good weekend and rest up before next week!

How about "TV show you wish they would bring back" or "The How-To... book you wish someone would write" ??

I don't even have to take the quiz to know that I'm a Type A personality. Please...
