On February 26—has it really been that long—Darlene Foster, author of Amanda in Arabia and Amanda in Spain, tagged me. According to the rules (slightly modified), those tagged must do the following:
1) Answer questions posed by the tagger:
Do you use a bookmark or will any old bit of paper do?
What new books are you most excited to read this year?
Nothing exciting, but I will read a few and then I’ll see if they are exciting or not.
All. Mostly those which occur in the Maritimes of Canada.
If money were not an issue, what present would you give yourself?
A six-month stay in Scotland.
Do you buy second-hand books, new books or both?
Early bird or night owl?
Do you like to read a specific genre? If so, what genre is it?
No. I read what I hope to be good stories regardless of genre.
Who is your favourite literary character of all time?
Spiderman because he taught me that “with great power comes great responsibility”. And because he’s funny. [I’m referring to the original series, the 12-minute cartoon that first graced the television screen, not today’s cartoons.]
Physical books, E-books or audio books?
If your life was made into a movie, who would you like to play you?
Karen Allen, the woman who played Marion in the Indiana Jones movies.
2) The next rule in the Tag Game is to post the rules:
1. You must post the rules!
2. Answer the questions and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag seven people and link to them.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them.
My eleven questions to those tagged (some are repeated from above because they were great questions):
a) What was the last book you read?
b) Physical books, ebooks or audio books?
c) If your life was made into a movie, who would you like to play you?
d) Who is your favourite fictional character—book, comic or movie—of all time?
e) If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
f) Blueberries, Raspberries or Strawberries?
g) Have you written a story which included an animal? What was the animal?
h) Typewriter, computer or looseleaf for drafts?
i) What is the name of your favourite character in one of your stories?
h) Do you like to write in a particular genre? If so, which one?
j) Pool, lake or ocean for swimming?
