Don't know, but I'd like to shake his hand; he made my baby fall in love with me.
What was the first thing you wrote that you looked at and thought it was good enough for publishing?
My poem "wool and silk and wood". I've always loved Shayara, but it's always felt like my baby... something just for me and my friends. With "wool and silk and wood", I went "Huh. I don't suck." It was my first submission and my first sale, to Electric Velocipede.
Want to hang out?
do you know how wonderful you are? Really?
I honestly have no possible answer to that question, as its fairly subjective. *laugh*
DOES the bubblegum lose it's flavor on the bedpost overnight?
I saw on gtalk that you have a cam?
I do. Recently started using Adam's old MacBook, which has the built-in iSight.
What squicks you?
Sexually, or in general? Sexually, anything involving feces. DO NOT WANT.
I can't think of anything at the moment, but if I do, I'll email it to you.
If You Could make ANY project being the only money making forerunner, what would it be?
Shayara. Hands down. It's my Big Story, and I want it told, but I also want to be able to pay for my monthly meds, so it ends up getting sidelined. :(
What is the best book I've never read?
I'd have to have a look at your library! Have you read Mary Doria Russell's The Sparrow?
What things DON'T you like, sexually?
Hm. That is actually a more complex and multilayered answer, mostly because my fibromyalgia has changed a lot about my sex life. Ask me this in person next time I see you, and I'll give you a big rambly answer.
What's your favorite acoustic instrument to hear?
If writing was not an option for some reason, and physical/financial limitations were not an object, what career would you most want to have?
Dancer. Wow, that was an immediate response! And a wistful one, since physical limitations prevent it in Real Life, even if I did have a wealthy patron. I can't dance like I used to, and I miss it acutely. Were there no obstacles in my way, and if I could not write, I would be a dancer.
Apart from the weight burden, what's it like being a big-breasted woman?
Annoying! The Rack of Doom is deucedly inconvenient. There are physical activities that are nigh-impossible (trying to pull myself up on aerial silks was amusing - supposed to have my arms in a position that they just could not get into). Makes clothes shopping difficult, too. No button-down shirts (mind the gap!), et cetera. I'd be happier with a B-cup.
Would you like to go to SalonCon in September?
