|Just Another Girl With A Diary|
Just posted my 2nd block of writing to my readers group. I'm still hoping to write another 2500 words before bed, but I'm not going to beat myself up if it doesn't happen. My lead is pretty spectacular still... Sitting at 32,515 right now. Way ahead of average!
1. If you could have complete access to knowledge about your future, would you want to know? If so, what? Is there anything you wouldn't want to know?
I'd like to know if I ever have children. As of right now, I'm done with trying. I don't know if that might change down the road, but I can't do it anymore right now. I've set my focus on other things. However, with complete access to knowledge of my future, I'd definitely find out how that story was going to end. If I found out that I do go on to become a mother, I'd insist on knowing when and how. I'd like to know if I'll ever be a published author... or a successful author (more importantly). If yes, I wouldn't mind knowing what publisher would end up picking me up... Could save me some time! LOL I'm almost sure I wouldn't want to know when/how I die. I think that's too much information for anyone to have.
2. Name 5 people who make you smile, and why.
Only 5? That's tough. I started to type these out, but I refuse. I'm not doing it. I no longer keep people in my life who don't make me smile. So, everyone I know makes me smile, and I can't choose favorites. My husband is awesome and supportive and loving. My real-life friends are wonderful. My family is better than I could have ever hoped to have. And, my online friends are some of the most remarkably wonderful people I've ever met or e-met. There's no way I could tell you why only 5 people make me smile. I'm far too blessed to narrow it down.
3. When someone pays you a compliment, do you believe them?
Not usually. There are some things that I've been complimented on that I do believe, but not most things. I've never believed anyone who has complimented my appearance... ever. I worry constantly that people are nice to me about my writing just to avoid hurting my feelings. So, no... I don't. If someone compliments my wit, I can sometimes buy that. I do have my funny moments. I tend to believe any compliment I receive about my intellect. The rest? I figure it's just people who don't want to hurt my feelings. *shrug*
