Tag... You're It!!!

What a fun game! I’ve been tagged by two exceptional writers which means they ask me questions, I answer and then I have to come up with questions to ask more writers. Thank you to Ellen at http://ellenwrin.blogspot.com and Courtney at http://www.ctnyrene.blogspot.com. for including me in on this enjoyable game!
I have also been awarded the Kreativ Blogger Award from Rick Starkey at http://rjstarkey.blogspot.com. This award consists of me telling my readers 10 things they didn’t know about me. Thank you, Rick. I am honored.
However, I am going to cheat and combine all of these into one. I will answer five of Ellen’s questions, six of Courtney’s and then my readers will know 11 things about me they didn’t already know. Here are the answers to those questions.
Ellen’s questions to me:
1.     If you could live in a fictional world, where would that be?
I would live in whatever world I could find where I could fly and everyone loved each other and didn’t judge. (if anyone knows where I can find this world, please let me know!)
2.     Do you read in noisy or quiet places?
I definitely have to read in a quiet place. Any kind of noise going on distracts me too much.
3.     Do reviews influence your choice of reads?
Yes they do, sometimes. If I’m reading a book by an author I don’t know, then a review will definitely persuade me. However, if it’s by an author I know, then probably not.
4.     Fiction or Nonfiction?
Fiction, most times. However, I do love a good true crime story or one about a person who went through extraordinary times. I enjoy some biographies as well.
5.     Audio books or Paperbacks?
I’ve not read an audio book as of yet so I’d definitely have to say a paperbook.

Courtneys questions to me:

6.   What is your favorite animal?
      Definitely dogs. There is no better animal to me than a cute, sweet puppy dog.

7.   Do you have one place on earth that you dream of visiting?
      Hawaii would be awesome!

8.   What is your favorite paranormal power and why?
Definitely flying. Why? Because I dream of it all the time and just think nothing would be more fantastic than the ability to fly and see whatever there was to see. I’ve had such vivid flying dreams that I’ve often woken up and really thought maybe I could! But darnit… it was just a dream.

9.   Coffee?
      Dah!! Who doesn’t need coffee to wake up? I definitely do.

10. Who is your favorite storybook character?
      Well as silly and nerdy as this sounds, probably Cinderella or Barbie!! I have all the Barbie video’s (shhh…I don’t have kids so don’t tell anyone!). And Cinderella, I just love how pretty she looks and the magic of that story.

11.  Do you believe in magic? Why or why not?
      My adult brain does not believe in magic, but in miracles. My child brain definitely believes in all things magic and lives for it!

That was fun. Now here are the rules for this tag game.
The Tag rules
1. You must post the rules!
2. Answer the questions and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag five people and link to them.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them
I am going to ask the same combination of Ellen and Courtney’s questions to the five people below and I’d also like to pass on the Kreativ Blog Award to you as well! Congratulations. The rules to that are to thank the giver and then tell your readers 10 things about yourself that they might not know and pass on to five other blogs.
Ruth Schiffmann at http://outonalimbshywritergoessocial.blogspot.com/ (I see you’ve already received the Kreativ Blog Award but I’d like to tag you anyway!)

So to reiterate, here are my 11 questions again:
1.   If you could live in a fictional world, where would that be?
2.   Do you read in noisy or quiet places?
3.   Do reviews influence your choice of reads?
4.   Fiction or Nonfiction?
5.   Audio books or Paperbacks?
6.   What is your favorite animal?
7.   Do you have one place on earth that you dream of visiting?
8.   What is your favorite paranormal power and why?
9.   Coffee?
10. Who is your favorite storybook character?
11. Do you believe in magic? Why or why not?

Have fun!

  7. I loved how you combined all these into one. It was a fun and lively post. Flying huh....that would be pretty cool. Also it would give you the opportunity to visit Hawaii. Just catch a airwave and head on over.
