Expanding the Circle

I am super excited. On Thursday (today, but I'm writing this post early so it isn't really Thursday yet) I am going to my first writer's conference / book conference.

 
The Book Academy at UVU.

 
Anyone else going? I think there are a few other locals I'm familiar with who are going. I'm looking forward to the chance to expand my in-person writer-buddies circle and get a chance to meet a few of the online buddies in person!

 
So since I'll hopefully be meeting some people live, I'd love to meet you guys out there in the blog-o-sphere. Below I've "borrowed" some questions off those chains from Facebook/Myspace/emails and posted them with my answers below. Beneath that I've posted the same questions, but blank, so you can just copy and paste into your comments and let me get to know you! A little of the writer you, and a little of the non-writer you!

(Thanks to Christine for the idea for this post! If you're not already following her, pop on over to her blog: The Musings of Christine Fonseca she's always got some interesting info!)

  1. Where are you from? West Jordan, Utah
  2. What time did you get up this morning? 6:00 A.M.
  3. Last movie you saw at the cinema? UP—gotta love Dug and Russell!
  4. What is your favorite TV show? Don’t want much, but I do really like NCIS, Project Runway and Design on a Dime. I haven’t had a chance to watch Glee yet, but it is totally on my list to catch.
  5. What is your favorite CD? Currently the Evanescence CD Fallen
  6. Are you a morning writer or a night writer? Night. My muse usually doesn’t wake up until around 9 or 10 P.M. so the creative juices take all day to percolate. And I’m totally a night owl. If I can fall asleep before the clock kicks back to A.M. hours, it’s a good day, er, night.
  7. What genre do you write? Young adult contemporary fiction.
  8. Prefer summer or winter? Since Fall and Spring are not choices here, I’ll pick winter. I LOVE sweater weather!!
  9. Coffee or tea? Gave up coffee about 3 months ago, so have a new appreciation for tea. Earl Grey (with chocolate covered Hobnob biscuits) is my fave right now.
  10. Favorite day of the week? Lazy ones that let me sleep in then wake up to write all day!
Here's the questions, blank, so you can just copy and paste them into your comments!

  • Where are you from?
  • What time did you get up this morning?
  • Last movie you saw at the cinema?
  • What is your favorite TV show?

 Thanks so much for following me! Look forward to meeting ya!
