Leigha Robbins, a lovely, poetic blogger, just received a well-deserved Real Neat Blog Award from Sadje, over at Keep It Alive.
Leigha posed seven questions, as per the rules for the Real Neat Blog Award. But as a self-confessed rule breaker, Leigha said that “I don’t want anyone left out. So, you are ALL nominated. Please join in and have some fun! Now for my questions for all of you.”
Thanks, Leigha. I’m going to take you up on that.
What is your favorite type of writing (poetry, flash fiction, stream of consciousness)?
You didn’t specify whether your talking about writing or reading, so I’ll answer from both perspectives. I enjoy writing flash fiction and I’m a regular participant on Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. So I like writing both. Now, when it comes to writing poetry, I suck at it, so I rarely even try.
As to what kind of writing I like reading, I enjoy all three types.
If you use prompts, what kind do you like (picture, word, phrase, set number of words, etc)?
What is your favorite pet you have had or want to get?
We have a 14 year-old dog and an 11 year-old cat and I love them both equally (except when our cat bites and scratches me, which is a daily occurrence).
Since this is close to Halloween, do you like scary movies?
I used to in my younger days, but not so much these days. I do like psychological thrillers and suspenseful movies. Just not the gory, blood and guts kind.
Have you ever seen a movie based on a book that was better than the book?
The only one I can think of was the movie version of Ira Levin’s “Rosemary’s Baby,” the one with Mia Farrow. I enjoyed the book, but I thought the movie did an excellent job of capturing the dark, sinister mood of the book.
Do you prefer coffee or tea?
Without question, coffee. My mother used to make me drink hot tea with a spoonful of honey in it whenever I got sick as a kid. So even now, I still associate hot tea with being sick.
If you listen to it, when do you start to play Christmas music?
If I never hear another Christmas song for the rest of my life, it will be too soon.
Anyone else care to answer Leigha’s questions?
