The Tuesday Topic

tuesdayChange of pace today. I usually leave you with one question, but today I have ten … TEN! So, get your interactive boots on. You must … simply MUST speak back to me today. If you don’t, I’ll cry and that really messes up my keyboard.

The inspiration for these brilliant questions (really, aren’t they blinding you?) came from an article I read discussing what degree of creativity is motivated by nature vs. nurture. This poll is all very scientific and the only acceptable excuse for not responding, is that you’re not a writer at all.

1. Were there many books in your childhood home?
2. Were you read to you as a child?
3. Are/were your parents avid readers?
4. Are there other writers in your family?
5. Have you always channeled your creativity into writing?
6. What other creative talents do you have?
7. Do you believe you were born to be a writer?
8. Do you have an MFA?
9. Do you write with the goal of publication?
10. Are you already published?

  3. # 1 – I had read my entire local library by the time I was in sixth grade….but to put this in perspective….I grew up in the sticks….it was a pretty small library…. :0)

    #6 Photography, painting, making gorgeous gardens that look like they’ve always been there even when they’re new……I’m really good at trimming trees…..I can cook (both in and out of the kitchen, hem hem, if you know what I mean)

    Let’s see what else…..
    ….oh, sometimes I’m funny… (not now of course, but sometimes)
