The 11 Game

I decided to post my 11 Game on my creative writing blog because my writing is the most personal aspect of my digital identity. Also, I decide it would be fun to play to see how my connections expand in this digital world.  I was tagged on Twitter by Craig Dunlap, someone I only know through Twitter.  In his post, I know only one other person, my good friend Craig Badura.  Interesting to see the web we create... (yes, pun intended)

My 11 Facts

1. My biggest goal is to have my novel published (I am editing it at this moment).

2. Black (then purple) is my favorite color.

3. I want to get my Ph.D. in literature.

4. I cried during the part in Remember the Titans when Coach Yoast says the famous line, "...they remember the night they played the Titans."

5. I love Birkenstock shoes.

6. I had five jobs my senior year in college.

7. Three is my lucky number.

8. I truly believe we can do life better.

9. I can still Breakdance.

10. I have grown to actually appreciate cool ties.

11. I still like cruising with my music loud... just isn't as cool in a minivan.

11 Questions
1. What's your favorite book character?  Why?
Catcher in the Rye. I understand Holden's view of the phoniness of this world.  But the book is deeper than that, and I love seeing my students get to that level.  It changes how you see Holden.

Traveling like Doctor Who.

3. What's your favorite 'get to know someone new" question?

"What's your favorite song of all time?"

Not at this moment.  But once my kids are grown, yes.

5. What did you think you'd be as an adult when you were 8?

A writer.

6. Now, what's your dream job?

A writer.

7. How long does it take you to get to work?

35 minutes. Shortest commute in the last 10 years.

8. What was your proudest moment thus far?

Seeing my own kids, and my students do what they love in this life.
9. What's your favorite thing to cook?
Frozen Pizza... and then eat it like a boss. (Family joke).

10. Android or iOS?


11. What's the last thing you said out loud?
"Don't make me turn this classroom around!"
