* * *Oh, fuliguline creature, me, paddle your way through these treacherous waters. Are not blog and bloviate the same? Nevertheless, I will rabbit through all these intrusive questions the best I can and try not to put too much blade to the bone.
I'm a simple person. My favorite thing in the world is to be creating something all the time. I've created a couple of people and planted too many gardens to count. I draw, paint, cook, and sew. I played general contractor on my kitchen remodel a few years ago, and I dream of tackling a landscape redesign. But most of all I want to give birth to my novel, Laughing Hawk. I'm finally about ready to start editing it.
I have a few annoying habits, but I try not to advertise them. According to my husband, impatience is one of my more tiresome habits and he's busy cataloguing all the others.
Best character trait? I haven't a clue. You would trust me.
Quirks? Let's just talk about writerly quirks. When I hit the wall and can't figure out where to take a scene, I throw a few tarot cards on the table. It kind of works like a creative whack pack. All it takes is a little diversion to bypass the analytical part of the brain and trigger a creative solution.
Secrets? If I had one, I probably wouldn't share it, although I heard my husband is secretly planning our vacation trip to Galapagos and Machu Pichu.
So there you have it. How have I lied to you?
