Blogfest Bernard Pivot

Thanks, Nicole Ducleroir. This was a great idea to get to find new blogs. If you're wondering what I'm doing click on the Blogfest button on the right.

1. What is your favorite word? Perseverance

2. What is your least favorite word? How about a phrase. “This is not for us.”

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Something or someone who makes me laugh.

4. What turns you off? Know it alls who think they know it all without really knowing it all. You know?

5. What is your favorite curse word? Shit

6. What sound or noise do you love? I love the sounds of the keys on my laptop click-clacking at crazy speed.

7. What sound or noise do you hate? Whining….oh, the pain.

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Writer, but if that can’t happen I’m considering becoming a ventriloquist or the dummy.

9. What profession would you not like to do? Waitress. Ug! I did it for years and just thinking about it makes my back hurt.

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? “By the skin of your teeth.”

I love your response to number 8! If it had to be me, I'd much rather be the ventriloquist though.

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

Perseverance. That's a beautiful word. I also like surreptitiously. "Why?" you ask.

"Because it reminds me of pana-cakes," I reply.

Jessica Bell said...

Believe me. Waitressing is Ugh! :o) Thanks for following my blog! :o)

Lola Sharp said...

Ha! "by the skin of your teeth"...LOVE. :)

Whining *cringe* also made my list of sounds I dislike.

mi3centsworth said...

Favorite curse word: shit...mine is MF...it sounds so good rolling off my tongue. LOL

You're right about: by the skin of your teeth...

Her highness, Samantha VĂ©rant said...

OMG. Love it. By the skin of your teeth--that is so me. ***waves and follows back!***

Writer, ventriloquist, or dummy -- too funny! God's probably going to have the same comment for me when I get there. *sigh*

Thanks so much for playing along!!

Kittie Howard said...

Jen Chandler said...

That tends to be my go-to curse word too (usually combined with 'this piece of'...directed at my work computer or telephone).

There are many days I feel like the dummy. Love your answers!

Cheers!
Jen

Margo Berendsen said...

Ah, I think that the sound of the keys on my keyboard probably should be my revised answer- because that means i'm getting writing done! And I agree with you on the whining, too! I'm a new follower.

Hi, Diana,

Love your answer to #1

Hart Johnson said...

Like both your 'word choices'--Perserverence is an identity thing for me... funny, I never thought about the word much before...

And ACK--the whining! Just shoot me now!

Pk Hrezo said...

LOL. "This is not for us" Yep, pretty much hate that one. And I waitressed for like ten years. UGH!
Nice to meet you! :)

Raquel Byrnes said...

That's cute. Dropping by from the crusade to say hello.

Susan Oloier said...

I really enjoyed your answers. Perseverence--yes! An important word to know as a writer. I appreciated #s 9 & 10, too. I was a waitress way back when for three months. That didn't work out too well.
I am also a mom of two and have written three novels (working on finishing a fourth). Still no luck with agents for me either.
I will definitely follow your blog and check back often.

Shannon said...

Finally making my way over for the blogfest! Sorry I'm late visiting.

Love #2 and #4 - agreed! Good to get to know you!

Kamaron said...

Some day I will have time to read and write. Until then, just dropping in to hopefully make your 100!

Rachel Morgan said...

Hey there!

I'm a fellow crusader just stopping by to say hi and to follow you :-)
