So You Want to be a Writer questions…
A few sentences about your writing: What do you write (blog entries, novels, poetry, etc)? Why do you write? I write whatever pops into my head. I usually write it as a word document. Sometimes it makes it on the blog; sometimes it just remains for my memories. So I guess basically what I write is “journal entries”. They are my memories. I write to keep them. I have also written some poetry but this is not my MO.
Did you always know that you wanted to write? Oh yes. I wrote a poem about my cat when I was maybe 6 or 7. I entered it in a contest and got 1st place. I was so proud. I have always written stories, journals, poems and songs. I love to write.

Favorite color? It was always blue, but since I started doing photography I have discovered red.
Favorite song? That’s a hard one. Each and every song has a memory attached to it. I love them all.
Favorite movie? Eternal Sunshine, Crash, Spaceballs, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Fight Club…I can’t choose one. Sorry.
