Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Writing Prompts - Interview

Interview yourself, your male half/your female half. Interview a parent, a sibling, your inner child. Interview a villain, a monster, a mythological being, a god. Interview the characters of your story or the characters from stories you have read. How fun would it be to interview Toto, say, or Robin Hood and Maid Marian? Ask them personal questions about themselves, the who, what, why, where, when and what if questions.

Sally: So Cat, we first learned about you when you came barging into the house and raised havoc, scaring my brother and me half to death....
Cat: Yeah, that was a ton of fun.
Sally: But what we want to know is, where did you come from?
Cat: Herethereandeverywhere.
S: Can't you be a bit more specific?
C: Well I could. But I won't. Let's just say I'm originally from the same place as Thing One and Thing Two.
S: Can you at least describe this place for us?
C: Oh it's a wild and crazy place, non-stop fun. Crazy lazy trees, flowers with polka-dots, animals with yellow and purple stripes. You know, whatever you can think up, it's there.
S: And what about Thing One and Thing Two, where, when, how did you meet up with them?
C: I found them under a rock, little roly-poly things that just seemed to want to tumble and jump and run and play. Dad thought they were a hoot. Mom wasn't so sure, but she warmed up to them.
S: So you do have parents?
C: Oh sure, sure and they're still alive and well and just tickled pink with my success.
S: Yes, you are kind of famous aren't you? Do you think fame has affected you? Changed you?
C: Fame change ME? MOI? Not in the least.
S: If you could give one piece of advise to everyone in the world, what would it be?
C: Oh that's easy, HAVE FUN!
