"I have been successful probably because I have always realized that I knew nothing about writing and have merely tried to tell an interesting story entertainingly." ~Edgar Rice Burroughs

I know, I know, I haven't played in a while, so here's the Friday Feast:

On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 as highest), how much do you like your own handwriting?

Actually, I'm going with 10 on this one. I like it, it's legible, and hey - it seems like *not* liking something so trivial about yourself would be silly. We beat ourselves up about everything else, right?

Do you prefer baths or showers?

Don't know that I have a preference - baths are super-relaxing, but showers are quicker.

What was the last bad movie you watched?

I"ll go with "Superbad" here - it was AWFUL. I know some people probably found it funny, but it for me, it was just 2 hours of bad humor and bad language and little plot, told from a a group of horny male adolescents' points of view.

Main Course
Name something you are addicted to and describe how it affects your life.

Chocolate! Positive effect: all those endorphins. Negative effect: is there one?

Which instrument is your favorite to listen to?

I do like string instruments, but since I play the piano myself, I love listening to a really talented pianist too.


Just in case you missed yesterday's announcement, my very first novel, One Night in Boston, is officially available for pre-order on Amazon! It's currently $5.00 off the full price, plus you get an additional 5% off for pre-ordering. Can't go wrong!


Finally, just a reminder that since it's halfway through March, I'll be giving away my first of two books by historical romance author Jenna Kernan tomorrow, to one lucky blog commenter. Check back to see who the winner is!

I just looked at the word count for "ONIN" (sounds like a Norse god...only that was Odin, right? Anyway...) and you're doing GREAT!! Wow.

And, re: chocolate? I heartily agree.

Happy Friday :-)

Marsha said...

Congrats on the book!

Hey we all love chocolate. We are looking forward to see who won the historical.

Jenny said...

The only negative effect of chocolate is that too much of it goes straight to my hips. LOL Loved your feast! :)

Ioma said...

Congratulations on your novel - what wonderful news!

I agree with you whole-heartedly on chocolate, and you make a good point about the handwriting thing. Maybe I should just learn to love mine.

Have a great weekend! :)
