Bernard Pivot Blogfest, Many Links and an ROW80 Update

Cveryone doing the Round of Words in 80 Days could use a bit of chocolate, right? Does anyone have any to share, leftover from Monday, perhaps?



I've entered that cycle - slack off, feel guilty, slack off some more. Ah, I shouldn't be too hard on myself - I got most of some very important dialogue written last week, and edited a scene featuring one of my villains (the hero's father) and shared it as my exercise for February on the Compuserve Forum. Then I did some random copy editing this morning, and it was so much fun rereading scenes from the story!

Along the line of that, Susan has a very inspiring post on nourishing your creative spirit.

And Nicole's hosting a Bernard Pivot Blogfest! I've answered a few of these questions before, but here goes:

What is your favorite word? Wariangle

What is your least favorite word? Like ("like, OMG, LOL!")

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Creatively - writing a story that's flowing well; spiritually - reading Tolkien, Lewis, Sayers or Saint Augustine; emotionally - sweet stories that aren't too sappy, or movies like Waking Ned Devine. And anything to do with ordinary people, heroism and Keep Calm and Carry On during World War I and World War II.

What turns you off? Wilful stupidity, vapidity

What is your favorite curse word? Fish wrinkles

What sound or noise do you love? The Aegean sea crashing on the sand near my grandmother's house

What sound or noise do you hate? TV commercials

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Veterinarian or sailor (on a sailboat)

What profession would you not like to do? Anything involving public speaking

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "This way to the TARDIS..."

(I'd like to see what European cities and other places on Earth looked like hundreds and thousands of years ago, and explore the universe, and the Time And Relative Dimension In Space machine on Doctor Who would be perfect for that sort of travel)
