I’ve Been Tagged – Twice!

New bloggy friends Jacob Adams over at Dream Scape, and D.G. Hudson of Rainforest Writing have TAGGED me.

The RULES are: I answer 11 questions, make up 11 questions of my own and tag 11 other writers.

Since I’ve been tagged twice, I’ve decided to just pick an equal number of questions from DG and Jacob to answer.

Here are my answers to Jacob and DG’s combined questions.

1. What is the one author you can’t refuse?

JK Rowling. I’d buy any book she writes.

2. How long have you blogged?

I’m going to celebrate 2 years this May. Watch out for giveaways!

3. Do you listen to music while writing or prefer silence? (Both Jacob and DG asked this question)

I like to listen to soundtracks or instrumental music while I’m writing.

4. Do you have a pet?

Yup. 2 snuggly lap kitties—Muffin and Millie

5. To you, what’s the hardest thing about writing?

Revising that very rough first draft into a decent manuscript

6. What beverage is beside you while you’re writing?

Hot tea. Lots of it.

7. Movie night: Comedy, Sci-Fi, Romance, or Horror?

I could watch anything except for slapstick comedy or horror.  Mostly I like watching Fantasy/Action-Adventure

8. Do you pick male or female protagonists the most when you write?

I prefer male protagonists, though I write both.

9. Favorite season?

Spring. Though summer comes in close second.

10. Where do you write?

Mostly I sneak in writing time when I’m at my 9-6 job. One of the reasons I stick to my workplace, despite the unsatisfying salary, is that I get to write as long as I’m done with my work.

11. Would you live on the moon or Mars if ever given a chance? Why or Why not?

Nope. I love Earth too much. I’d like to visit though.

  1. What’s your ultimate caffeine source?
  2. If you were stranded on an island, what book would you like to have with you?
  3. Favorite music source? (Radio, Pandora, Spotify, CD, Ipod, etc)

  1. J.K. Rowling by far occupies a question on this online meme. It’s interesting to see how she is basically the only writer in the world for so many people.

  2. Akoss says:

    It was fun getting to know you more through your answers. :)

  3. Interesting you like to write about us guys!

  4. Aldrea Alien says:

    Oh, I love reading these things.
    And you’re nearing two years on the blog? Congrats. ^_^

  5. Lynda Young says:

    I agree. Earth is a pretty awesome place to live :)
    Thanks for the tag!

  6. Thanks, I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day, and I hope you got out to dinner. This tagging looks difficult-I mean, making up questions, doesn’t look easy. I think the problem is that my mind is 100 different places right now. Remember I’m not as talented with this website stuff as you are. Do I copy and paste-you’ll have to walk me through it. I know I’m a pain. Thanks.

  7. M.J. Fifield says:

    I love instrumental music for serious writing sessions. And yeah, I’d also buy any book J.K. Rowling published. =)

  8. Rachel Mary Bean says:

    That was fun! But now I want to know, where do you work?

  9. Julie Musil says:

    Oh, how fun! I loved getting to know you better. I agree with you about the hardest thing about writing AND about your love of spring & summer. Summer is my favorite season, with spring a close second 😀

    Thanks for tagging me!

  10. Hilary says:

    Hi Nutschell .. great hearing a little more about you .. congratulations on the award. Well you’ve hit the right moment haven’t you – Spring is coming and sadly Summer follows way too soon after! Have a great week .. cheers Hilary

  11. mooderino says:

    A nice cup of tea is my favoured beverage too.


  12. Hi Nutschell! Thanks for tagging me, I really appreciate it. Your questions are fun and I will have to get some answers together. I enjoyed reading your Q&A as well. How exciting your 2 year blogging anniversary is coming up, I didn’t realize you’d been blogging that long. Congrats in advance! 😀

    Thanks again for thinking of me!

  13. Rek says:

    I enjoyed getting to know just a wee bit more. The feminist in me is pouting that u prefer writing about heroes. ;D

  14. DG Hudson says:

    Thanks for participating in the tag, Writing Nut, and I like your questions. Mixing up the two was an ideal solution.
    #8 – I do the same.

    I’ll have to come back to look at your England series of posts that I see in the sidebar. I’d lke to see London on our next trip.

  15. Jay Noel says:

    So very interesting…

    My problem isn’t the rough draft, it’s usually drafts 3-5 that drain me. And hey, you prefer to write about male protagonists!

  16. It was great reading your responses. I also have two lap kitties and tea is one of my favorite beverages.

  17. Shelly says:

    I’m slacker about stuff like this.

  18. Rick Daley says:

    I’m halfway through Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This series is awesome, I can’t wait to get to the end!

  19. OMG! I, too, was tagged by DG Hudson. Tomorrow I am posting my answers and the lucky bloggers I’ve tagged 😀 LOL!
    I guess it’s a nice way to find out more about our fellow bloggers.

  20. Treelight says:

    I tagged you, too, for the 11-Questions-Game, but I didn’t get around to tell you yet. (http://treelightswriting.blogspot.com/2012/02/11-questions.html)

    In any case, your answers were very interesting. I envy you for your writing-friendly day-job!

  21. deniz says:

    I agree about Rowling!
    Love the lap kitties :-) I’ve got two, too.

  22. Sophia Chang says:

    This was SO fun to do! Thanks for tagging me and I finally got around to posting up my answers.

  23. […] Writing Nut, a.k.a. the fabulous Nutschell, tagged me in a super-fun post.  My mission now, should I choose to accept it, is to answer her 11 questions, make up 11 […]

  24. Thanks for tagging me! I’ll go do a post about this now. :)
