LJ Interests meme results
- cat power:
Charlie loaned me a copy of cat’s cd–I forget which one. It put me to sleep (in a good way) on many a night when I lived in his mom’s basement. I can’t find that cd now, but this meme thing has reminded me to look for it–maybe tonight.
- dr. seuss:
loved his books as a kid and understand them as an adult. if i could draw, it would be in the style of dr. seuss books. if i could write poetry, it would be in the style of dr. seuss books. if i could live in a make-believe world, the cat in the hat would be my neighbor.
i prefer reading fiction to non any day. and i think i’d rather write fiction, too (though i haven’t been able to do it for over a year). it’d be nice to make a living off of writing fiction.
the only kind of writing i’m any good at these days. i’ve been experimenting quite a bit in my journaling–writing in first, second and third person. past, future and present tenses. it’s interesting to compare the content of my entries based on pov and verb tense.
- mechanical pencils:
my writing instrument of choice. thin lead, metal casing, and a strong eraser, please.
this is about the only comic i read any more. really, though, i don’t get a chance to read the comics too much because i don’t get the newspaper. basically i just admire a penguin who walks around in his drawers all day.
the semi-colon is my favorite punctuation mark as of late. i’m also a big fan of the em-dash. i tend to overuse punctuation when i write. there’s always lots of commas, marking lots of appositives, as my friend john paul once pointed out to me.
i live here. i love it. this is my city. mine.
- southern fiction:
favorite writers are ron rash, flannery o’connor, eudora welty. i look to these three for inspiration with voice and flavor. and when i do write fiction, it’s generally regional fiction–all based in the south, all exploring quirky southerners.
- the simpsons:
speaking of the simpsons, i need to finish this thing. show starts at 6. gotta get home and see it. (yes, i often schedule my life around tv.)
