Paperclip award

Many thanks to Hope over at ElvishJesusFreak for passing me the paperclip award!

The award comes with some questions for me to answer. Here goes!

1. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I actually wrote a post all about this – some of the ones I went through were a vet, lawyer and a journalist. I ended up in HR and now I’m pursuing writing so life doesn’t turn out the way you plan 🙂

2. What is your ultimate favorite place to be?
This is a tough one, I’ve been to some amazing places but to be honest my favourite one is home.

3. Name one famous person who inspires you. (Just one!!!)
Right now I’m really inspired by other writers and their journeys so I’m going to pick JK Rowling as her struggle for success keeps me going and I really admire her story-telling, charity work and courage.

4. Tea or Coffee?
I can’t let the Brits down, I’ll have to say tea! I don’t drink coffee at all, never have.

5. If you could be any other person for 48 hours, who would you be?
The little girl I used to be says a princess just to try it out 🙂

6. What is your earliest memory?
It’s hard to pick just one that stands out. I’m actually quite bad at remembering things, I tend to remember a photo of it instead. But I do remember having three imaginary friends when I was little so I’ll say that one. And look how it turned out – I still imagine people when I’m writing so I got an early start on that!

7. If you could ask anyone in the world, living or dead, anything, who would you ask, and what would you ask them?
It’d be nice sometimes to ask about my future but I’m sure I’m better off not knowing 🙂

8. What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
I think leaving home to go to University was scary. As was getting a tattoo. But lately, quitting my job to focus on writing fits the bill.

9. What is your favorite book?
Pride and Prejudice.

10. Briefly explain one of the weirdest dreams you have ever had.
Last night I dreamt I was in a restaurant with my mum and from the counter up to get food and she followed, leaving our bags under the table. When we came back, they’d been stolen. Mine was a white Juicy Couture bag, which I don’t even own. I was very unhappy with my mum in the dream. Werid.

11. What one song best describes you? (Feel free to post a link to a Youtube vid)
I’ve written a post about this song before. It inspires me so I’m going to pick it even if it is from a Disney film 🙂

12. Pen or pencil?
Pen. I haven’t used pencil since school.

13. Is 13 an unlucky number or not?
I don’t think so. I don’t really have lucky or unlucky numbers.

  1. Oh, wow! Thanks for tagging me, Victoria! I love your answers. J.K Rowling inspires me, too. So does the possibility of making that kind of money and donating much of it to charities.

  2. Congratulations on your award, stumbled across your blog and your answer to number 8 interested me. Are you writing full time at the moment? This is pretty much my biggest ambition at the moment, don’t suppose it will happen for a long time though… a girl can dream though!

    1. Thanks Emma and welcome! Thanks for the follow too – do you have a blog? I’m leaving my job at the end of this month to focus on writing at least for a year and see what happens. Scary but exciting! I hope your dream comes true soon 🙂

      1. I do have a blog if you fancy popping by and sharing your words of wisdom.

        A very brave step and I am sure it will pay off, it’s always hard just finding the time to write when you are working full time. I hope it goes well for you and look forward to reading about how you get along 🙂

  3. Thanks so much, Victoria! I’m very humbled by your acknowledgement! 🙂

    I also love Pride and Prejudice – in university I took a whole class dedicated to Jane Austen and I’d never read her before that.

  4. LOVE IT!!!! Great answers. 🙂 I’m not a coffee person either, but I did discover Iced Vanilla Chai Lattes and I love those! So now I have something fun to order at coffee shops!! LOL

  5. Congrats on the award! I loved Pride and Prejudice though I think Wuthering Heights is my all time favorite book. 🙂
