in five

It seems I'm doing more of these things, but this one's fun. Banzai Cat asked the questions, and I provided the answers. For extra fun, read the stuff after the Q&A.

(1) You're stuck on an island with a stock of your Petty Pets. Which pets will you start to eat first?

OMG, that is such a horrible question. Well, I’d eat my rabbits, because they are really edible anyway. Hmmm. Actually, I’d set it up so they breed and I’ll have rabbits to eat until I’m rescued – and still have some inventory to sell. And I’d never eat the turtles.

(2) How do you deal with writer's rejection?

I read the critique, try to understand where the story or submission went wrong, take note of it, then determine if I agree – if I do, I implement it for next time, if I don’t, I discard the observation. For a while, I’ll feel bad, but afterwards I’ll pick myself up and write something new. You can’t win all the time, which makes the times you do win even sweeter.

(3) A cybernetic butterfly waggles its wings in the virtual world. What is its effect in the real world?

A young girl, the victim of a vicious hit-and-run accident, wakes up from her coma and proceeds to write the most exquisite poetry the world has ever seen. Yes, Happyland would be delighted.

(4) White wine or red?

Red, which friends and clients gift me with. Last night, fed up with my growing stock of unopened bottles, Nikki created angel hair pasta with red wine. Heaven.

(5) Define yourself using onomatopeia.


Here are The Official Interview Game Rules:

1. If you want to participate, leave a comment below saying “interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you five questions - each person’s will be different.
3. You will update your journal/blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

If you don’t have a blog, I will still ask you 5 unique questions and you can post your answers here.

Any takers?


Hey, give me a shout out in the comments below when your answers are up so I can see what you said :)
