    What has been your greatest success in writing? (Personal writing, collaborative writing, completing a project or book, etc.): My greatest success in writing was being published for poetry in middle school.

    What do you struggle with in writing and how do you tackle that challenge? In writing, I struggle with writer’s block and the beginning. To tackle this, I just keep trying out different ways to say things and work on the wording.

    What are you currently reading? Author? The Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton

    What’s your favorite guilty reading pleasure, an easy, “beach” read? Nicholas Sparks’ “A Walk to Remember”

    Do you have a favorite word or quotation and who is the author? Favorite word: cataclysmic and/or anthropomorphic; favorite quotation: “The other day I thought about the saying ‘Revenge is a dish best served cold.’ Then I considered ‘revenge is sweet.’ I’ve come to the conclusion that revenge is ice cream.” –anonymous
