Hmmm. This could be enlightening.
Five fabulous moments in my life:
Man, I’ve had so many fabulous moments, it’s hard to choose.
Well, one, two and three are easy–the days my sons were born and my wedding day. Nothing tops these.
But the day I received “the call” from Samhain ranks way up there. I’d been dreaming about being a published author for twenty years. When I got the call, I started crying, hit my knees and said my thanks. Then I proceeded to blubber my news to anyone who would listen (and a few customers who were trapped next to me in the coffee line). When I stepped outside that morning, I found one of those deflated helium balloons on my front lawn, how it got there, I haven’t a clue. It said “Happy Birthday!”
Two other fab moments (these tie for 5th) was when I had my book release party and my book signing. I loved these events because I got to personally thank the people who supported me. Ahh, so great.
Five things I love:
My family and friends.
That exquisite moment when the characters rip the story out of my hands and start living.
Five things that I hate:
Hate is such a strong word. Can we call it dislike?
I dislike it when drivers talk on their cell phones! Especially when I am crossing in the crosswalk with my kids. GRRRR.
Bullying of any kind.
Hmm, maybe hate was the write word after all.
Thank you for this award.
I will be sending it on to other bloggers who must deserve it more than I do.
