Interview with Kate (the Scatterbrained Seamstress)
Hi, y’all! Did a fun little interview with a friend of mine from the blogging world, Kate (also known as the “Scatterbrained Seamstress.” 🙂
Hello, Kate, glad to have you here today! Are you ready for this?
Ready as I’ll ever be!
Good. Let’s go!
If you met a dragon, what would you do?
First off, I would probably scream because FIRE. Then I would be all excited and take a ton of pictures. And I would end up a burnt crisp in the end for trying to hug the dragon.
What if you woke up in a strange place with your memory erased?
I have no idea. I’d probably be immensely confused and pretty annoyed.
Where would you go if you found a time-traveling machine?
I would go to the past.
What would you do?
I would meet my favorite historical figures from the past.
Who would you meet?
Clementi, J.K. Rowling, Bach, inventor of sewing machine
Do you think you’d get into a lot of trouble there?
I’d probably accidentally become my dad’s love interest (*cough cough* Marty McFly *cough cough*). Not really. I might pull out my phone to take a picture with Bach and mess up the whole time continuum.
Are you writing a book for Camp NaNo this year?
Yes, I’m writing a royalty era/fantasy novel named “Masked Intent.”
What’s it about?
Since I’m really bad at summarising my own novels, here’s the summary:
Melly Aldridge is different. She’s trapped in a life filled with chore upon chore, her only solace the mischievous Samuel who knows Melly better than anyone else. Her parents were hung for treason when she was nine by a King whose son was Melly’s childhood friend. Suddenly, the memories she had buried and tried to forget are upturned, and Melly is forced to return to the palace, the place where her parents were murdered and her heart was broken. But as she learns the secrets of her past and discovers new ones, she must choose between old friendship or new love, adventure or familiarity, and perhaps life or death.
Very vague, I know. You’ll just have to wait until it’s published. 😉
Where’d you get the idea?
A dream. It was an awesome dream, and right when I woke up I wrote onto a piece of paper, and Masked Intent was born.
Do you think you’ll write a sequel?
Yes, I’ve already got plans for the plot ;).
What’s your favorite book? (I’m so evil!)
Very very evil. I’m going to do three because I’m very evil too (mwa ha ha). Red Queen, The Book Thief, and The Secret Life of Bees.
Your favorite character in fiction (other than your own)?
I would have to say Lily Owens from The Secret Life of Bees. She has some lovely character development and is just a well thought out character overall.
What are your plans for the future as a writer?
To actually publish Masked Intent (and of course finish it/edit it)
As a blogger?
To blog once a week.
Do you like cheetos? If you haven’t had them, do you think you would?
Cheetos are delicious, especially with a glass of milk. Mmm!
Oh, yeah! 😀
What music are you listening to?
Twenty One Pilots. They’re my favorite band and just plain awesome.
What’s your favorite kind of pie?
Do you have any pets?
I have two fish named Luna and Tim. 🙂
How about siblings (not so fun as pets, I know)?
I have four siblings, from ages 1 to 10 and they drive me insane, but hey, I love ’em.
Do you have a favorite color?
Any shade of blue, but especially seafoam greenish blue.
How about a favorite food to have for dinner?
Pork Tenderloin with asparagus and mashed potatoes. My mouth waters just typing it.
A favorite dessert?
Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
Do you have anything to say to all these lovely readers? (You know, assuming we’re not the only ones here!) 😉
If you’re doing Camp Nano: go write!!
Everyone else: ignore the last sentence 🙂
Thanks so much for interviewing me, Kellyn! Its been fun.
Thanks for reading everyone! Have a *slightly sarcastic voice* great Monday!
p.s. I probably won’t be doing a review today, but there’s a slight possibility of it happening if I have extra time and my guilty feelings about bombing you with posts on off-days as-of-late goes away.
