Twitter Pitch Contest!

All right minions! (I think you have to have like hundreds and hundreds of followers to say that for real, but I couldn't resist) There's an epically awesome twitter pitch contest going on over at Sisters in Scribe. There is a truly frawesome prize and guaranteed fun. I implore you to check it out! I've already entered (and am now obsessing over the remote possibility that I might place... *fights urge to start frivolous editing* ) but I expect to see some of ya'll join in too! I've been dashing over to check out the other entries and I have to say it's engrossing to read everyone's pitches.

I'm in a Meme! Yeah, I didn't know what it meant either...

Okay, so the lovely Christi Corbett has tagged me in a meme! Aaaaand she was good enough on her blog to post exactly what a meme was... you can read about it here because I am a lazy slug and she said it better than I could anyway... So to get this thing started, I'm supposed to answer a few questions...

If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?

Wow, um, that's a hard one... I think - and this will sound strange - that I'd relive any moment that I spent sitting on my grandfather's lap. The thing is, my mom's dad was a Cherokee, and he was just so quiet, so ominously impassive, that as little kids we were sort of afraid of him. I can't really explain it, but there was such a gentle fierceness to him. By the time I understood how much he loved us kids (about age 8) he died of cancer, but I can still remember sitting on his lap, and I cherish that.

My grandfather, grandmother, and mother.

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

Honestly not much... although there are a few Irish boys I wish I'd kissed when I'd had the chance... one Traveler lad in particular... I can still smell him sometimes when I wake up at night... hand-rolled vanilla cigs...

What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?

Sgt. Oddball from Kelly's Heroes, hands down!

If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?

Um... there are probably lots of people who deserve to get pushed off a cliff... but unless one of them is threatening someone with imminent danger right in front of me, I won't be the one doing the shoving...

Name one habit you want to change in yourself.

I'm so impatient with humans... while animals get most of my soft side... I could work on that.

Describe yourself in one word.


Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.

My West Coast sister! We're bound as only fellow writers can be, I'm a twin, she has twins, I live now in the town where her historical novel begins back then. It's epically frawesome.

Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.

To write for public consumption on a weekly basis, and to make connections with other writers. She said it perfectly :)

Name at least 3 people to send this meme to, and then inform them.
