I’ve never taken part in the Share Your World series before but I have often read and enjoyed other people’s responses and decided it was about time I got involved!
1. What is your favorite smell? What memory does it remind you of?
As a writer and avid reader, it may sound predictable to say that my favourite smell in the whole world is books, but it’s absolutely true. It’s like a deliciously tantalizing prelude to the wonder that’s waiting to be discovered on the pages within. It’s a hugely nostalgic smell and it definitely reminds me of my childhood.
2. Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?
This is a tough one as music is a huge part of my life. You could ask me every day and probably get a different answer each time but for now I will say All is Full of Love by Bjӧrk. The lyrics are gorgeously simplistic in their message while the song itself (not to forget its music video) manages to be simultaneously euphoric and heart-breaking. Here’s a live performance from a few years back.
3. Do you play video/computer games? Which one(s) or most recent?
I’m not a ‘gamer’ per se but I do enjoy playing them. I grew up with the Resident Evil franchise so I’d probably pick it as my favourite.
4. Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)
I’d probably say Sleepy, since sleep itself so often eludes me. As for the 8th dwarf, I’d name him Hangry (when you’re so hungry you feel angry; we’ve all been there).
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful for making it to the end of the first round of edits on my WIP and am looking forward to starting to receive feedback from a beta reader. Nervous but exciting times lie ahead!
