My Eleven Questions

I have been tagged for eleven questions by at least three different people, and do to lack of time I'm going to only be able to answer one set. So here they are asked by Jacob Adams.

1. What is the one author you can't refuse?
  Hard to say considering that I don't read a lot of fiction, but I do enjoy Dean Koontz.
2. Do you listen to music while writing or do you prefer perfect silence?
  Typically I like to have music going as it helps with the mood. The only problem however is when you have something slow and gentle playing while writing an intense scene.
3. To you, what is the hardest thing about writing?
  Staying disciplined.
4. What is something that happened in your childhood that influenced your writing today?
  I have always enjoyed plot development since I was very young, and it is those times that I would play with my siblings that have influenced my current works. We were always running around acting out a story, fighting off the the bad guys, and saving the world.
5. Movie night: comedy, sci fi, romance, or horror?
  Sci fi.
6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  Stereotyping I guess, but then we all do it to an extent. A more specific one is when someone judges you for not doing something according to the traditional method.
7. Favorite season?
  I enjoy fall.
8. What was the first book you simply could not put down?
  I'm not really sure about that one.
9. If you could time travel (without the ability to influence the past), what time period would you visit?
  The American Revolution. I would like to meet the people who established this country and hear what their views were, since their seems to be some controversy today as to what their beliefs really were.
10. Would you live on the moon or Mars if ever given the chance? Why or why not?
  Probably the moon. Mars is to orange for my taste while the moon seems to have a more peacful ambiance about it although probably very lonely.
11. What is the biggest thing that scares you?
   Nothing at all. "Sigh," if only that were true. Right now the thing that gives me the most anxiety is the question of what am I going to do in life? At times I feel like a ship lost out on see, but then I'm constantly reminded to keep my eyes on God. I can only trust him to get me where I need to be, and looking back on my life I can't say he has ever failed me. As the Psalmist wrote, you have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. Psalms 4:7. 

Now here are my eleven questions for anyone who would like to answer them.

1. For you, what makes a bad book bad?
2.What is your idea of a good book?
3. Is there any kind of great book you have in mind that you want to write someday?
4. Who is someone you respect in life?
5. What do you believe is the most important thing in life?
6. What genre do you prefer?
7. What kind of hobbies do you have besides writing?
8. Is there any time in history that you find inspiration from?
9. What drives you to write?
10. What kind of animal would you want as a pet if you could choose any kind?
11. Who is one of your favorite characters in either one of your works or someone else's works?            


Cool blog post! Thanks for answering the questions, it was fun to read your answers. :)


I totally agree on Dean Koontz! He's one of my favorites, too!


I also got tagged to answer these questions. And I will answer that I'd live on the moon, too. :-)
