More A to Z, Thee and Me


Questions I know you're dying to ask me:

You: Are the stories about you?
Me: I hope not. I hope they are not suppressed memories, but instead a grim healthy imagination. Now that I think about it, the first story about a neighbor and a mean child.... I'm kidding.
You:  If the title is called Grim Tales of the Ruralhood, why don’t you post them on theRuralhood blog instead of Journaling Woman?
Me: Good question. And, there is a reason, but I will only tell you if you travel to MO and buy me lunch, if I’m available. J
You: What is your “real” hair color?
Me: Really, is that relevant here? Blond. No wait, brown. Red? I'm sorry I don't remember. But, I’m sure it has its own color under the highlight and lowlight--and starlight. We won’t mention the gray.
You: Would you like to turn this into an eBook?
Me:  I'm actually thinking about it. Maybe—if I rewrite and add back some of the words I had to cut. There is back story on some that would have made the stories longer, that I could add back. But, I don’t know how to create an eBook. I’ll think about that tomorrow.
Me again: Whew, now I know how J.K. Rowling feels when she gives interviews. I think I'm ready to experience her wealth, though. Yes, I am.
You: Why did you decide to commit to the A-Z Challenge after all these years?
Me: Come on, it’s only been a couple of years. Joining, the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, takes a bit of commitment. Anyone can do it in their own way, with their own flavor. We all know, I have a problem with being told what to do and with commitment issues. But, I was ready to commit to the A-Z for the month of April.  I’m looking forward to blog hopping and meeting new people and reading new things.
You: Will you do it next year?
Me: I’ll tell you next year.
You: How much do you weigh?
Me: Interview over!

    Do we really want to find out what we have under all that? I think not.

    Hmmm, I am in Missouri. Lunch?

    I enjoyed reading this and you have no idea how much I needed the giggles today.

  9. Your A-Z idea is good. Clever you! The A-Z is a crazy idea, but somehow just right for bloggers. You'll never guess what I'm doing, lol!

  12. Another fun A to Z prelim post. I hope you do an e-book. A to Z will gain the reputation of becoming a launching pad for books.

  13. Hi Teresa - I'm so looking forward to starting my read of your Grim Tales tomorrow ... and then finding out the back story re your Ruralhood .. sounds fun though ...

    One of our lady owners of a football club over here .. was giving an interview the other day .. she said when she had a press conference after buying the club and becoming Managing Director .. at the end of the press conference - one last question .. yes: what are your vital statistics?

    Women v Men ...

    Cheers and loved the post - Hilary
