Eleven questions from Shyla:

How did you come up with your blog concept?

I love writing short stories and flash fiction, and wanted to see if there was any interest in my writing. I have a few ideas for novels floating around, so I thought a blog was a good place to start.

What inspires you to keep blogging?

The feedback, and seeing the countries on the stats map light up when I have a new visitor! So thrilling to see that someone across the world has seen something that I have posted!

What are you currently reading (or most recently read)?

I recently finished The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and I am midway through Bill Nye’s book on evolution.

What’s the scariest book you’ve ever read?

I read a bunch of cheesy vampire novellas when I was too young, and those stuck with me for a long time… I put garlic cloves in my windowsill.    :>

Are you a night owl or a morning bird?

I can be both, but generally my favorite wake up time is around 8 or 9.

What in your life are you most proud of?

My educational endeavors.

Who is your hero?

I have so much respect for Malala Yousafzai, her book was incredible.

Do you have a phobia? If so, what is it?

No phobias, though I am a big wimp when it comes to spiders and creepy crawlies.

If you were to write the story of you, what genre would it be and why?

Definitely satire. I mock myself pretty regularly.

What is the best movie you’ve seen recently?

I really enjoyed A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night & Mad Max: Fury Road

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

The use of the word irregardless. It just means regardless!

My nominations:

“It come to me in a vision…” a view of the world from the sub-arctic.
