Tag: You're It

I figured that since I'm investing in my writing, I should invest in my body as well. Which means regular exercise...and using my gym membership. So I've been. The verdict: my body hates me. My legs are crying, but I feel pretty good for it.

So I was glad when I read Renae's post on Internet tag. I have to answer eight questions, and tag eight people to answer the same. But Renae, and the agents over at Coffee. Tea. And Literary tagged everyone who read thee post. So I'm doing the same.

Don't blame me, blame my poor tormented limbs...they made me do it. :)

1. If you could have a superpower, what would you have? Why?

It's a mix between flying or super speed. Flying for fun, super speed for getting stuff done...oh and writing, reading

2. Who is your style icon?

Hmm. I'm rather eclectic in my fashion sense (my friend calls me a hippy/rock chick). I'd have to say I'm a mix of both styles, but I don't really have a style icon...I'm like a magpie.

3. What is your favorite quote?

"Have no fear of perfection -- you'll never reach it." (Salvador Dali)
4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?

Err, I'm not sure on that one. But I do like being told that I've helped someone, that's the best compliment for me. I like it if I can make other people smile.

5. What playlist/cd is on your ipod/cd player right now?

The play list for my current wip is on repeat on my ipod at the moment. It has lots of Muse, Apocalyptica, Coldplay and The Script on it.

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?

I'm a night owl, but not too late. I'm the Goldilocks of sleep. :)

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?

Dogs. I like cats, but we only ever had a dog when I was younger. I do like cats though.

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?

I called my blog 'Adventures In Writing' because you can never have too many adventures. Besides, for me, that's what writing/reading is -- full of adventures.  
So that's me. Feel free to partake in the tag yourself.

I'll ad this to my posts for the week. Thanks! I needed ideas. <3

I totally pictured you as a dog person, Lindsay. :) This is fun. I'll join the game.

I love the style and music questions. It's fun to get a sense of friends I've only met online. *giggles about hippie rock chick*

Ah, fun post! I especially love your #3. Refreshing and true. :)

Renae said...

The gym! Good for you. If I could skip work I would so be there!

I loved your answers! Especially you hippie rock chick style. Great description!

Going to the gym is like writing. You drag your feet but once you do it, you never regret it. You always regret NOT doing it though.

I've got the dumb and a big October coming up so if I remember to do this, I might do it later. :D

Oh I love your quote and want to print it out and glue it to the wall in front of me. :)

I want the power to fly too!

That is a great quote.
