Friday Five

Meme time! I've been tagged by Talli!
Here're the rules: Answer 5 questions 5 times and then tag 5 people to play.

Question 1: Where were you 5 years ago?
(my answers span the summers of 2004-2006)
On vacation in England and Scotland and Wales and Turkey
Planning my wedding
Reading Diana Gabaldon’s books for the first time
Joining the Compuserve Books and Writers Community
Starting to write again after not having had any inspiration for a couple of years!

Question 2: Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
In a new house, possibly by the water, possibly in another country
Possibly with a puppy, which my cats will get along with
A gardener (I can’t say ‘a better gardener’ because I’m not any kind of gardener at the moment.)
With an agent! And with a book deal!
A regular attendee at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference – and meeting some of my forum and blog friends

Question 3: What 5 things are (were) on your to-do list today?
Comment on blogs posts and put up a new post
Write a new scene
Revise my query letter (ugh!)
Finish reading research books before the library sends someone out to wrench them from my hands (yes, they’ve been renewed a few times too many.)
Think of what to have for dinner, buy the groceries and make it. Any suggestions?
(Oh yes, and go to work.)

Question 4: What 5 snacks do you enjoy?
Dark chocolate (99%) with coffee
A bowlful of apples
Olive bread with butter
Tortilla chips
Celery

Question 5: What 5 things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Leave work and focus on writing full time
Sail along the Mediterranean and travel more (and visit Talli’s vineyard!)
Finally fix up one room in our house as a real library and not stint myself in buying books
Get a farm, including sheep, alpaca, etc. for spinning my own wool, and grow organic plants (including lavender, olive trees, etc.)
Home school

Tag 5 people:
Jenny
Claire, Jen, Rachel and Kristen
Kait
Cindy
Karen

And anyone else who feels like answering questions.

I love dark chocolate with coffee! Yummy. Those are great goals. Good luck with your query letter revisions. I revise mine every day. Ug!

Yay for tags! It was great to read more about you! And yes, nothing can beat dark chocolate with coffee.
