Phew! That's a lot of ???'s. I'll answer the first. I've been writing since I was ten. When my parents wouldn't listen to me...I wrote stories. Hmm? No one still listens to me...and I'm still writing stories.

Adina West said...

Can only manage 8, 9, and 10.

I've given up on many things over the years, but finishing a novel wasn't one of them thankfully!

What I want right now is a nice mug of hot chocolate...

Hmmm, if that's what I'm craving it must be my bedtime! (which answers Q10)

Ellen Brickley said...

1) What made you want to write?

I don't know, because I was very young when I started wanting to write - I guess the easy answer is loving books!

2) When did you start blogging?

I started sporadically in April 2009 and properly in September 2009.

3) Sweet or Savory?

Sweet. Sweet is goooood.

4) What's your big dream?

To be published and to make enough money from writing to do it full-time and without a day job. Also to travel the world and finally get my eyebrows plucked into the shape I want.

5) What does your best friend say is your best characteristic?

I don't have one best friend, but two of my close friends have told me I'm the person they trust to tell them what they need to hear even when it's not what they want.


6) What do you say is your best characteristic?

I have no idea! I have a sense of humour, which is handy :)

7) If you know you have one hour left, what would you do in it?

Say goodbye to loved ones.

8) Have you ever wanted to do something that you gave up on?

Learning to play a musical instrument. I'm tone deaf and it was just too much work!

9) What do you want RIGHT NOW?

A cup of mint tea.

10) What are you planning for later today?

Heading out for a drive, baking some marshmallow treats to torment my poor mother and maybe clearing out the spare room.

Fun post, Misha :)

Wow, that's a lot of questions and I wish I had time to answer them all! But, later today, I'm seriously thinking about taking a nap. Crap night last night.

I prefer savory and it will be a year this October that I've been blogging!

Fun questions!

Theresa said...

1) I always had stories. Seeing them in books made me realise I can share my stories.

2) May this year (I think). It's been going OK so far.

3) Both together.

4) I want to be known as a great servant.

5) I'm not sure. Misha?

6)I'm persistent. Maybe tenacious is a better word.

7) Spend it with my husband and my two kitties.

8) Many, many things. Becoming a veterinarian, playing the piano, the guitar. I realised that some things just never were meant to be.

9) Peace and quiet. Sushi.

10) Taking out one or the other Andrew Lloyd Webber musical on DVD.

Thanks, Misha!

Writing happened one day when I sat down to read a book and couldn't get a scene to leave my head. Scene had nothing to do with the book. I started blogging after reading from Janet Reid's blog that writers need to find a support network and online is a good place. Always sweet, unless it's meat then I like savory. Biggest dream I have would be to own a beach house on the coast. My best characteristic is my need to be organized, even if that doesn't appear organized on the outside. I say my best characteristic is that I worry (about everything). I'd take some anti-anxiety meds, and probably lay down for a nap. I'd rather spend the time in my imagination doing every thing I wouldn't have time to do in an hour. I haven't given up on anything, put off for another day or month but not yet totally given up.

Right now I want a nap, candy bar and better songs playing on pandora. Later today for once I have no plans so I'll probably sneak in some writing and bad tv watching.

Caitlin said...

Lots of questions! Hehe, will do, though. Are you going to answer these questions as well?

1. When I was eight-year-old my dad gave me his mother's old typewriter. I wrote my first story on it, and have been writing ever since.

2. Earlier this year. Back in March, I think.

3. Savory!

4. To be published and make enough to not have to go to work after I'm done having kids and they're all in school.

5. My best friend would say "You don't have any."

6. Not sure...

7. Spend that hour with my husband and my daughter.

8. Yep. I dropped out of college. I'd like to go back and finish my Japanese degree and one day teach English in Japan, but I don't think it will ever happen.

9. String cheese.

10. Crocheting!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Lot of questions, Misha. I started writing in College.
I love both Sweet and savoury. Actually I am a foodie.
My best characteristic is my cheerful nature according to my best friend. I have to agree with her.
I have many dreams: to get an literary agent, to see my books in hardcover.
Later today, I am planning to read my CP'S book.

GigglesandGuns said...

Only time for 9 & 10.
Right now I want to figure out a scene that's giving me trouble.
Later today -- hoping I hear from Granddaughter who arrives at university in another state today.
Oh yeah, cutting the grass. YUK!!

Those are 10 great character question BTW.

Jen Chandler said...

Great questions!

What made me want to write? I read Madeleine L'Engle's book "A Wrinkle in Time" and it completely blew me away that one could weild that much creative power and freedom with little more than pen and little black symbols we call words. I love the awesome responsibility of creating worlds ... I like the idea that I can take the world and make it as I see it, as it should be, or ,as I hope it never becomes.

Happy Tuesday!
Jen

Rosalind Adam said...

I've been selective too. Hope you don't mind. I'd go for savoury every time. My friends think I'm a softie. I think I'm a softie too I guess. And if I had one hour left I'd hug my children.
