It’s Inquisitive Wednesday! On IW, I answer 5-10 questions, be they from awards, tags, or reader input.
Well, it’s the first of October, as I’m sure many have you have noticed. This IW, I’m answering a few of my own questions. Who knows? Maybe you guys have actually been wondering these things…
1. Why do you call it Autumn instead of Fall?
Okay, okay. I just like the sound of the word Autumn better than the word Fall.
2. What’s your favorite part of Autumn?
Who wrote these questions? Oh yeah… I like a lot of things about Autumn. I like pumpkin cookies, the cool weather, the leaves changing color, Mallow-Creme pumpkins (I really like pumpkins)… oh! And the annual visit from the Great Pumpkin!
3. Do you celebrate Halloween?
Yes, I do… sort of. I don’t usually like creepy stuff, but I do enjoy watching the aforementioned Charlie Brown episode, as well as the Winnie-the-Pooh Halloween episode. And I usually walk around town, dressed up, while my siblings trick-or-treat.
4. What are you dressing up as?
I have no idea… Any ideas? Like, stuff I can find around the house ideas?
5. Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
Which isn’t actually an October question, but everyone else is freaking out about it, so I thought I would, too.
Yes, I will be participating. However, I will be a rebel and not start a new project. I’m going to work on LASER (which I sincerely doubt that I will finish before November, since I only got to page 30 night before last. By the way… I did get to page 30, so YAY!).
6. When are you going to tell us about LASER?!
Um… when the first draft is done. Sorry, but that’s how I roll. Remember when I said this:?
Before anyone starts asking what it’s about, there’s something you should know. I will not be saying much about my stories on Spiral-Bound. I have learned, the hard way, that if I talk about my stories too much, I lose interest. And there’s little worse than losing interest in a perfectly good story. Trust that I will slip hints when I think “safe”, but beyond that, I’m afraid you will just have to wait until at least the first draft is done.
So, that’s that. Let me assure you that LASER has been going pretty well. I haven’t told anyone anything about it. A few people (like 3) know the names of a couple of characters. Besides myself, one person has an inkling of plot (because she helped me figure out what LASER stood for).
Anyway. I must go. Hobbits to tend to…
