I have a few autographs. Books, rock bands, and perhaps most interesting of all: Stevan Mena.
I've mentioned his works on this blog before. As horror movies go, he's really taken on an interesting twist. I was at his screening of Bereavement (which was shot largely in my area, thus screened here).
Who would I like to have? I think JK Rowling signing my first edition of Harry Potter would be cool.
Why are we drawn to the signatures of people? Millions of checks are signed every day, and those signatures hardly seem coveted. Banks cash and destroy them, after all. So why do people spend extraordinary amounts of money for a signed baseball, poster, or comic book? Why do people stand in line for hours to have a rock star with a marker sign a body part, only to wash the signature off later?
I have a feeling that there's a fantasy story hiding in the bowels of the answer.
This is a blog chain hop on writing for authors with blogs. It is my honor to have been tagged by Ia Uaro.
Ia Uaro was a published author at 17 and used the proceeds
to help fund her university studies, during which time she was active in
aero-modelling, martial arts, mountaineering, speleology... and studied
petroleum seismology among her music-playing friends. After her graduation she
worked with French, Norwegian and American geophysical companies, besides being
a volunteer translator. In

1. What am I working on?
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
3. Why do I write what I do?
4. How does my writing process work?
And now to introduce the next author!
This writer was bold and brave enough to jump in. The writer knows a free promotion opportunity should always be seized. I would tell you to click on a link or two, so you could learn more about this writer, except they do not exist!
I put the offer out there. No takers. So, the hop, sadly, ends here.
Thank you for stopping by to read this post.
If I could be in any movie or TV show, as myself, what would I choose, and what would I bring to the table?
This is a tough one, because my upbringing states that a camera can steal a soul, and production sets are full of cameras! So either that needs to be set aside for a moment, or I would be limited to appearing as an invisible creature...
Nicole Kidman, I'm coming for your house! What would I bring? I don't know, maybe a white candle. That answer isn't in the spirit of the question, but trying to answer it without breaking the SPOILER ALERT code is impossible.
Oh, maybe I could be animated! I could be in the movie Frozen and hang out with Olaf. What would I bring to the table? Well, I think that character is wildly misunderstood and underrated. I could hang out with him, as a buddy team. Twin snowmen! Trust me, you'd enjoy it. It'd be worth freezing for. Melting for? Hmm...
TV Show, I'm going with Worst Cooks in America
Maybe I could be on Bones, you know, as the bones... but I'd
have to be dead. Oh dear. It'd be fun to hear her talk about the Lenni Lenape
So, how did I die? It's obvious! I was on Game of Thrones, playing with dragons.
Five books I would NOT want to live in:
Reasons, in order: I don't like snakes, or being possibly killed by Voldemort. Creepy hotel with no one around in the dead of winter-- pass. I do not wish to be a vampire, or be food for one. I'd get murdered. I'd just... no, just no.
Five books I would LOVE to live in:
Reasons, in order: Freaking awesome school, I want to play with Buckbeak, and I want to see the dragons. I swear I already grew up friends with this guy, so I could claim to be in the damn book if the year it was written was different. I'd totally hang with Boo. Just give me my sword. I could never fully explain this one, but I'd totally be her friend and go out for drinks.
