Thanks to L. Palmer for nominating my blog for the R.E.A.L.I.T.Y award!
L. Palmer and I met, I think when I stumbled onto her blog. But we became friends when I had the audacity to ask about the delicious ice cream she was about to consume in her profile pic. Mmm… delicious ice cream!
Anyway, I’m hit and miss when it comes to blog chain thingies. Monday is typically reserved for a Row80 update. But this sounded like more fun, so here we are. I will however say I finally got all my stuff together and entered Pitch Wars. I think I’ve got a fair shot. But whatever happens it’s been good to get my query letter polished up and have a deadline to get SHADE ready to go. Even if I don’t gain a mentor, I’m a lot closer to being ready to query this puppy than I was before, and I call that a win. Plus I’ve met some fabulous new writer friends. As far as other Row80 goals, Pitch Wars has overtaken focusing on most of them. I am doing decently with No Treat November, although I suppose now I’ve moved on to Don’t Dessert December. If I can maintain through December I’ll be pretty happy. Now back to the R.E.A.L.I.T.Y award.

My Answers to the Questions
If you could change something what would you change? I kind of like L. Palmer’s idea. Let’s make treats have the same nutritional values and calories as vegetables. Even if it was only on holidays, I’d be pretty contest to eat cookie dough for breakfast that one day and have it count as though I’d eaten broccoli. I have three favorite cookie doughs: oatmeal, chocolate chip, and ginger.
If you could relive one day, when would it be? Hmmm… lots of good options, but there was this one day in Costa Rica where we snorkeled beside this island that you can walk out to when the tide is low. I think that same day we had some of the best tica food we tasted the whole trip. To finish it off, we went to the beach and sat in a tide pool that kept us level with the ocean as we watched the sunset. Then we ate some amazing dinner, some of it including nachos and fruit bebidas at this restaurant down the road. I could relive that day a few times.
What’s one thing that really scares you? Dying without eating dessert first. That’s why I start most meals with a treat. 😉
What one dream have you not completed yet, and do you think you will be able to complete it? Publishing my novel, and yes I think I’m on the way there. Pitch Wars might be my foot in the door, but if not I’ve got a few other avenues I’m looking into. I’ve been trying for some time, but I don’t think I was ready before. I believe I’m ready now.
If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be? Lara Croft. I’d love to experience what having that kind of strength and agility would be like. Maybe it would motivate me to get there faster. Plus I’d have a British accent. Hello boys! And treasure hunting like Indiana Jones? Who wouldn’t want that experience, at least for a day?
I hereby optionally pass this award onto:
Mystic Cooking. Mostly because I want to hear your answers, plus we’ll get double answers—one from Kati and one from Heidi. Double the fun! If you haven’t visited the Mystic Cooking blog, you should. Not only do Kati and Heidi have a fantastic novel idea, they are great girls whose blog I always enjoy reading.
Miss Alexandrina. Same as above. She’s a blogging buddy of mine and I’m curious to know what her answers would be. She’s got a great WIP about time travel and broken time.
Gloria Weber. I’m certain she’s got some interesting answers. Let’s have them! Gloria and I keep each other motivated in writing. がんばてね！
Thanks for the nomination. And thanks, L. for helping shake things up.
