I was thrilled to giveaway copies of Melissa Ford's Life From Scratch and now I'm participating in the book tour.
- In your life outlook, are you a Rachel or an Arianna?
I wish I was an Arianna, but I'm not, I'm a Rachel. I can be anxious, and I can "awfulize" things. I can see the downside of the situation and fail to see the good. That being said, I'm not a downer by any means, and I don't think Rachel is either. I'm always positive about situations other people find themselves in. It is just when I am in a situation, I have a hard time being positive about it.
- If you had a year to do what you wanted, what would you do? Would you learn to cook or something different?
I'd write. I would try to find as many freelance writing jobs as I could. I would try to build a portfolio as a writer so I could eventually leave my legal job and start over as a writer.
- How would you react if your blog hit the big time — if you had hundreds of thousands or even millions of readers hanging on your every word, if you won awards, if mainstream media wanted to interview and feature you? Are there aspects of blogging fame that you'd refuse? How would the content of your blog change?
First and foremost, I'd quit my job. But there are still people in my real life who do not know about my blog and I would have to tell them, and I think it would be odd for them as to why I never told them in the first place. I don't believe any content of my blog would change, but I do think I would feel more pressure to write.
If you have not read Life From Scratch yet, I hope you do!
