Share Your World week #34

Today is Sunday, and the Share Your World questions are here, courtesy of Cee at Cee’s Life Photography Blog.

  1.  If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?  I find I like writing poems, but I have a fourth choice:  I most enjoy writing short, non-fiction opinion pieces.  I have a very personal style, and I believe I write best, regardless of genre, when I am writing with an authentic voice.
  2. If you had only one book you could write what would it be about?  Assume it is a top 10 seller of any genre.  That is a tough question — I started writing a memoir, but then the poetry rose up in me, so I decided I’d write a book of poetry, instead.  But now, thanks to something Mom said to me today, I am more confused than ever, but in a very contented way.  A book will come out of me, someday, and I will just write until it manifests itself.
  3. Did you watch the opening of the Olympics in London?  What was your favorite part of the opening?  I watched until the start of the parade of nations, then I muted the tube and started writing, instead.  My favorite part was the transition from agrarian to industrial England, with the complete change of scene on the field.  I loved the smokestacks, and I adore Kenneth Branagh.  I thought that was the best transformation in the show, although I missed the beds coming out, because I got stuck with Finding Nemo on Disney Junior — I can’t resist that film!
  4. What is your favorite summer Olympic event or events?  I like so many events — track and field, beach volleyball, diving, (both men’s and women’s,) swimming, and of course, gymnastics.  I must confess, though, that I watch gymnastics more to talk about how young women on each team look.  I despise the whole stiff walk, arm raised beginning — I remember before women started doing that, and they were always so much more graceful.  This is only a partial list — I like most every event, for one reason or another.

  1. Did you hear about the strange woman who marched in with the Greek (I think) team? She waltzed into the stadium next to the flag bearer, not dressed in the team uniform, and NO ONE STOPPED her! Can you believe it? In this day of high security?

I love to read your thoughts...
