Question #10 – What things are you interested in outside of your artwork?
I love to read all types of books, but mostly fiction. However, I like to write non-fiction more than fiction. I have tried writing fiction, but it feels like it takes me forever just to get a short story out even though in 1995 I wrote a novella. I gave it to my mother, my husband, and a couple of friends to read, though. I never tried to do anything else with it; maybe someday….it still needs tons of work, believe me!
I also like to ride my stationary bike while listening to my iPod and use light weights to work out. I used to walk about a mile or so a day until my feet exploded with bunions! So that is too painful to do now.
I like to play Scrabble with my husband who says I always win, but I have the score sheets in the box….he has won more than he realizes!
I like photography, but again too much walking does me in, so I don’t get out and take pictures as much as I would like to.
I like reading and writing or drawing at the library or the Barnes and Noble bookstore. In fact, Monday, when I was at the bookstore, there were two guys and a girl studying college chemistry together. I never even had to turn my iPod on and put my earphones in, though, because they were polite in their talking to one another, they never once cussed, and they were having fun. It was refreshing really. I was in town all day that day, because I had to get one of the tires on the car fixed. But I got a lot done, so it was great. 🙂

They really were great teens. You know, many months ago, I did, but I just didn’t have the energy to re-read it! HA! 🙂 I am planning on doing that some time this summer, though. Hey, by the way, do you want me to send you the original drawing of the hummingbird? Do you have an e-mail address on your blog?
I love hearing the story about the quiet teens in the bookstore, Patsy! I think you should break out your novella and revisit it. 🙂
