Quirky Facts About Me

I’m obsessed with Yankee Candles – the cotton one especially!

I can count to ten, and ask to go to the bathroom in Gaelic.

I can turn any conversation into a song.

I would like to collect something, but I can’t figure out what…yet.

I love the moon. And trees!

Speaking of trees – I once got stuck up one. I was ten, don’t judge!

Coffee flows through my veins… probably.

I’m the kind of mother who tries to bake cakes for the school fete, fails, and then goes and buys them from the store. Truth.

I went to see Thunder from Down Under in Las Vegas, and came away with a picture of their butts. I have evidence.

  1. Love the picture in your banner. Did you take it?

    • Unfortunately not and it is only temporary. I have put a shout out on a site that I am part of. Most of the people there live in various states along the Appalachian Trail. The picture that I want is of the Appalachians in the fall and another of a goldenrod field. Fingers crossed I’ll have some soon. I’ve never been lucky enough to visit America but when I do I’ll be taking a gazillion shots 🙂 Not that I am all that good with a camera!

      • Haha well best of luck getting the picture you seek. I’d love to hike part of the Appalachian Trail, especially in the Fall.

        • Me too. It is a dream of mine. I have a beautiful book on it full of some of the most amazing pictures. I would love to do the whole walkthrough, Georgia to Maine. I think that’s a long way off though!

          • And a long trek!! But it would be amazing 🙂

    Hey Emma! Thanks for the follow! Stay tuned for a new post tomorrow on SitS. If you ever need editing or want someone to “review” your work, let me know! I’m always happy to help out a fellow blogger and writer.

    • Thank you 🙂 I was just rummaging around on your blog looking for the most recent post so I look forward to reading tomorrow 🙂 I will be looking for an editor soon but its bulky, lots of words! At the moment 75k and growing but would be interested to know your prices 🙂 It’s really nice to connect to someone else. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to not only visit but comment too 🙂 x

  3. Hi, Emma. (-: I tagged you in ‘The Bookshelf Tag.’ Here’s the link if you’re interested. http://justinaluther.wordpress.com/2014/09/09/bookshelf-tag/

  4. I find music very inspirational. When I was writing the chapters from the point of view of my pirate captain in Ship of Dreams, I kept playing U2’s “With or Without You” over and over again.

    • I thought I was the only one that did that! I think everyone thinks I’m nuts because the same song repeats for hours when I’m writing something relating to it! Thank you for commenting and following, I really appreciate it 🙂

      • My pleasure! When I wrote my first fantasy novel, I played “The Best of Berlin” over and over again. I really love instrumental music for inspiration. It makes the movie play in my head, you know?

        • I know exactly! My fight scenes I use fast tempo, sad scenes I turn to instrumental, then the heartbreak/love, I have a catalog of varying types of love songs for them! I really do take inspiration from music. I wrote a song the other night that really relates to my characters feelings, just on impulse!

          • How wonderful! I like piano or violin music for the really emotional scenes. The music of Kyoshi Yoshida is great for fight scenes and action. My favorite song makes me think of the hero riding a horse really fast down a beach at high noon.

  5. Hey Emma, thanks for coming to see me at Steve Says…come again, stay a while – have a drink even! I look forward to this blogging journey with you. Steve…

    • Thank you, Steve. I wish you all the best with your blogging experience! 🙂

  6. Very interesting site and well managed! As a self-published author myself I’m always looking for faster and easier ways to get this done. I’ll be seeing you around! Thanks for some great info!

    • Thank you 🙂 It’s always nice to talk to other self published authors. I’m going to go over to your blog now and stalk you for a little while, lol 😀

      • Stalk away! I should have a sign on my header – ‘Stalkers Welcome!’ 😉

        • lol!! I love a good old stalk. I’m soooo nosey 😀

Talk to me - I love to waffle back!
