Adventure before dementia

What's Your Medieval Profession?

I have just snagged this from redwulf50  ... and daren't tell Toni or Ros the answers - I can get lost walking DJ in a straight line up the road ... !!!!

You Are a Cartographer
You have a wide range of knowledge and you're very detail oriented.
You have a photographic memory, and you remember places very well.

Like a middle ages cartographer, you're also very adventurous and curious about the world.
In modern times, you would make a good non-fiction writer or scientist.

"Boys And Girls Come Out To Play"

It was windy this morning - but fairly sunny ... so that was great to have another dry Wednesday morning.

So - 3  boys :-
And - 3 girls :-
And lots to play with :-
   Paper and plastic bags rustling in hedges
   Gates creaking in the wind
   Wind whistling in places that wind should never whistle!!!

It was actually a fun ride, but each of the 3 boys took turns at making the other 2 jump at the things that they decided were wrong!

Anyway - it was a lovely day to be out, good company and the cobwebs were certainly blown away!!

Once back, it was time for a feed (from his new bag of feed) and then back out to the field, carrying hay for the 2 of them to share.

Fan-Fic MEME.

As most of you know I have written a few fan-fics ... what most of you may not know, is the struggle I have with myself to do so.

When I was at school, I was told by my English teacher that i was completely useless, and my parents had to persuade the school to let me take my O level exam.

Fortuneatly for me, the teacher I had in those last 2 terms was great ... and got me writing about thigs I knew - describing a picture hanging on the wall, for example, to get me used to the idea of description.  So, I passed my O level and was able to get to college - where I was always being picked up for my bad spelling, grammar etc.

Therefore the thought of writing someting more than a letter to a friend, or my patients notes, was not something remotely on the horizon ... Then I watched the last few episodes of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer ... and, the rest, as they say, is history!


So, I snagged this MEME from kalinda001 , because she is an amazing Blakes 7 writer ... and she wanted to know what made her f-list tick   Why they write, etc.  So, here are the questions, I would love to know your answers ... mine are behind the cut :-

1 Why do you write fanfic?
2 When did you write your first fanfic and which fandom was it for?
3 Which fandoms do you, or have you, written for?
4 Do you read much fanfic or do you mainly write?
5 What comes easiest for you when writing?
(dialogue, descriptions, plot, characterizations, humour, angst...)
6 Which genres do you mainly write? (action, angst, dark, drama, horror, humour...)
7 Which genres will you not write?
8 Are reader comments/responses important?
9 Do you use a beta reader?
10 Which is your favourite character to write fanfic for and why?
11 Which are your favourite ships (including friendships) that you write the most?
12 Do you have characters that are so strongly established that they're in your heads?
13 Which characters are you most comfortable doing a POV for? Which is the hardest?

Hope that has answered a few questions ~ Now I would love to see what makes some of my f-lists brains tick.  There is some amazing talent out there - I am so envious of your skills.

MEME ~ One To Marry, One To Shag & One To Cliff!

So anyway the rules are:-

1. Comment and I will give you 3 people. If you comment, let me know if you want to do the meme and I will give you three people for a fandom I have some idea you are interested in (if I know the characters).
2. Post this meme with your answers.
3. Provide pictures and the names of three people.
4. Label which you would marry, shag, or cliff.

I was mad enough to comment on kudagirl s LJ .... and this is who she gave me :-

Any Blakes 7 character (since I haven't seen the series, you chose character)
Any Star Trek Voyager character (same reason as above)
Any James Marster character -Giving you lots of opinions, but only one James' character. Being a bit evil. It's only for fun and fantasy remember.

So, being the good girl that I am, I didn't cheat and chose the favourite character of both Blakes 7 and Star trek Voyager ... and my first ( and true) love from James ....

Collapse )
That was a hard choice to make ... but was glad I didn't cheat and just choose a character I didn't like!
