For Fun

Saw this on two friends' blogs, so I thought I'd add it to mine:

1. You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?

I haven't watched it, but from other's responses, sounds like I'd be memorizing the book. So The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe it is - 11 reads should give me a head start. "Once there were four children named Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy . . ."

2. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

A few times, mostly as a young girl. Of course, I also like the ones I create.

3. The last book you bought was…?

Cast a Road Before Me by Brandilyn Collins

4. The last book you read was…?

Rereading The Two Collars by Jeri Massi for a roundup.

5. What are you currently reading?

Club Sandwich by Lisa Samson (advance copy)

6. Five books you would take to a desert island…going with der Fieldenmarshal about the Gideons

7-in-1 volume of The Chronicles of Narnia

Arena by Karen Hancock

The O'Malley Chronicles (6 books in 2 volumes - I read fast so more is better) by Dee Henderson

Thr3e by Ted Dekker

(Sorry, Jack Cavanaugh - if you get the Songs in the Night series into one volume, I'll dump the second Dee Henderson volume. The long waits you put your characters through will be inspiring.)

7. Who are you passing this stick on to and why?

No one, since it wasn't passed to me.

April Fools

I will admit that I'm somewhat gullible. I even skimmed through Dave's post at faith*in*fiction and didn't realize it was a hoax until I read the comments. (Though I'll admit, the mention of Narnia and Bethany House together threw me off track, with my hopes to write a Narnia sequel someday. And if you're ever wondering about the similar templates on the sites, remember, I had mine first before Dave changed his.) I have a tendency not to be able to focus on too many things at the same time, so I take things at face value and ponder them later. Not good with practical-joke-playing sisters. At least today they mostly ignored the holiday, since my brother's girlfriend spent the day with us. Much more relaxing than five years ago, when we moved in on April 1st.

I haven't done much writing this week as I've spent quite a lot of time online - listing auctions on eBay, checking out how to become an affiliate, and started an online forum for my young adult class at church. And the topic this half of the week on The Writers' View is on websites. I've been learning a lot, and enjoying it. But I'm wondering how all this spinning of wheels is affecting my writing. I fooled around too much in March - I don't want April to be the same way.
