Prolific bloggers and talented writers Denise and Donna K. Weaver have tagged me. There are eight things I have to do for this tag. Here they are:
1. Do you think you're hot?
Well I don't want to give too much away, but the Sun is out, all the windows are open, and I'm naked. Just kidding. It's warm here in South Devon today, so I'm a bit hot.
2. Upload a picture or wallpaper you're using at the moment.
This is the image I cropped and used for Cosmic Seed's mock cover, and it's there to remind me what my new focus is.
3. When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Last night. Mr. G and I had KFC.
4. The song you listened to recently.
I'll let you in on a little secret. Mr. G is a film score fan and Time Is Like A Dream by Georges Delerue was a big part of the inspiration behind my science-fiction novel Dreaming of Sleep.
5. What were you thinking when you were doing this?
I was lost in the lyrics and haunting vocal, and daydreaming as usual.
6. Do you have nicknames? What are they?
Elliebum or Smelly Ellie are the common names. I'd like to point out I don't have a large bum and I certainly don't smell. Elliebum was the name my stepson gave me when he was young and it's stuck ever since. Smelly Ellie just rhymes.
7. Tag eight bloggers.
Gosh. Has anyone any idea of how many people have already been tagged? A lot. I'm going to list eight and hope they haven't already been tagged:
Martin T. Ingham
Alex J. Cavanaugh
Milo James Fowler
8. A few questions about your tagged friends . . .
Who's listed as number one?
Maria Zannini is an extradionary science fiction romance writer, who is also generous with her time and support of aspiring writers.
Say something about number five.
I met Dorothy during NaNoWriMo last year and we live in the same town. I was supposed to meet up with her on my last holiday and had to cancel. Sorry, Dorothy.
How did you get to know number three?
I met Martin during the A to Z Challenge and have just finished reading his brilliant sci-fi novel, The Guns Of Mars.
How about number four?
I also met Tony during NaNoWriMo last year and he is a fellow sci-fi writer. Both he and his wife Margo are an inspiration to us all. I'm also a little jealous that they both write fiction; it must be wonderful to have someone there all the time to support and encourage you.
Leave a message for number six.
Just what the heck does the J in Alex J. Cavanaugh stand for?
Leave a lovey-dovey message for number two.
Jeremy and I are husband and wife in an alternate reality, so I'm just reminding him how much I want a pet zombie for my birthday or I'll be contacting a divorce lawyer. Oops . . .that's not really lovey-dovey. Sorry. I don't do those kinds of messages!
Do numbers seven and eight have any similarities?
Milo and Simon run the Write 1 Sub 1 challenge, and are both prolific writers. If you need a weekly shot of motivation, join them on the 2011 W 1 S 1 challenge.
Well, there are my answers. Thank you again to Denise and Donna for tagging me. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
