Q&A Tag- My Turn too…

A good writing friend of mine posted this on his Blog site The Writing Fisherman: Jason A. Meuschke, thank you for the opportunity to chime in…

One Response to Q&A Tag, My Turn

  1. S.M.Muse says:

    Thanks Jason, for this opportunity…

    1. Cookies or Cake? (your choice of flavors)

    Cake… let them all eat cake! And really there is no other choice- chocolate, of course!

    2. You’re able to visit with any one person in history for the next 2 hours. Who is it, and why?

    I’d like to visit with Phillip- you know, the one that’s in Acts who got ‘volunteered’ to speak to the Eunuch. I’d like to know how it felt to be a part of such a bigger plan, to do that one small part- and never realize your story would be told for generations. Also, I’d like to know what it feels like to be ‘swept’ up by the Spirit and carried off to someplace else… yea, flying… it’s gotta rock. (Read the story yourself: Acts 8:26-40)

    3. If it could be anywhere you wished, name your ideal writing spot, and your least ideal
    .
    Ideal- outside under a tree, 72 degrees, gentle breeze tickling the tree overhead, the smell of rain in the distance, the horizon darkening just before a Spring storm… the least ideal, where I’m at right now, at work taking a break.

    4. Name your dream job or, in case you’re doing it, name the one job you’d always like to try.

    The best job I ever had was working for a greenhouse in Clinton MO oh so many years ago… outside, no one hanging around, just me with my hands in the dirt and the sounds of nature singing all around.

    5. You just became the last animal you read, or wrote, about. What are you and are you now in danger?

    Something I last wrote, large pre-historic cats in Africa. I’m putting the finishing touches on my last book in the Valerian Cycle- and for some reason my ‘tribe’ is back in history. And yes, I’m in trouble, because I know the tasks that lie before them.

    6. Ebook or physical book?

    I fell in love with physical books, but all I read now are ebooks…

    7. You wake up and find yourself in a remote area of the most recent book you read/are reading. Beside you is the one tool you’re happy is with you. Where are you and what is that tool?

    Right now I’m up to my ‘eyebrows’ in Alex Bledsoe’s Tufa books, the tuatha de danann in modern day America- as the author states, they were here long before the Native Americans, and long before the ‘white man’ came over the Appalachians. Their favorite tool is music, it binds them, lifts them and dances them on the night winds, so I’d have to say some sort of musical instrument. In my case, an old AM/FM radio ‘cause I have no musical talent whatsoever… ‘

    8. Can you change a tire on your vehicle?

    Yes… not a fan though.

    9. Your next story/blog post is guaranteed to be a massive success that will change your life forever. As often happens,success comes with a cost. What will your newfound success cause you to lose?

    The opportunity to write as the muse moves me. With success comes deadlines and responsibilities. As with all professions becoming professional- I think those finding such success can so easily lose what caused them to strive forward to begin with. I write because I like to read…

    10. List three things about yourself that you haven’t told your readers before now.

    I began writing at the crazy young age of 12.

    If I had my way I’d find a beach and a chair and lay out under the sky for like, hours… nothing beats a good surf crashing into sand.

    I’m most proud of my wife and family… God has truly blessed me.

After meeting Frank Herbert, author of the acclaimed Dune Series, I decided the life of writing was for me. That was about 30 years ago, I've been writing ever since. Heir of Nostalgia is my first published novel, and thanks to the encouragement of my loving wife Janet, is the first in a series chronicling the trials and tribulations of young man in search of his family, his country as well as his place in the world. I am pleased to present it here, for your reading pleasure. I truly believe in the gift and wonder of reading, I hope you do as well. Here's to the land of wonder, an air of Nostalgia, and childhood memories. May we never grow too old to dream... Got a question, comment or review, I'd love to hear from you.
