Tag, you're it!

Okay, Crystal seems to have a "clue" about this game and I'm just hoping I don't slaughter the concept too much. :) So...Tag, You're It!

(This is where you introduce the blogger and talk about why you read the person's blog--the one who tagged you.)Crystal Miller is the fiction doctor and critiquer extraordinnaire! By that I mean she's wanted for her opinion. Wow, someday I'd love for that to be me. :) She's also pretty funny and loves to say ha! She's got me saying that now, too. Fiction reviewers unite! Ha! (See what I mean?) It's pathetic.

So here's the deal...I read Crystal's "Chat and Chew Cafe" blog on a regular basis ( because she has a lot of wacky comments and interesting ideas with mucho snap! Plus she's a blonde "sister" and she tagged me. What that means is that someone tagged her as “it” (that would be Tricia Goyer, author of a bizillion novels - slight exaggeration, but at least 6) and so, according to the "rules," she had to tag five women bloggers to answer a question. The rules say: (try and read this closely. Sorry it's all jumbled together.)

1. Answer one of these questions(see below) on your blog.
2. Link back to whoever tagged you.
3. Tag 5 (or more) other bloggers.
4. Plus, check out previous responses, and if you know of a novel that pertains to the subject someone wishes they could write or would like to read about, suggest the novel to them in a comment.

Here are the questions you wonderful tagged people! (she said it had to be women bloggers only.) :(

(1)If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be (Just the subject—don’t give away your plot idea.) * Like Crystal, I picked this one.
(2)If just the thought of having to write anything gives you hives, what would you like to read about in a novel that you’ve never seen done before?
(3)If you hate reading fiction (she says you can get counseling for that, but I find most refuse to face their problem) what subject might make you change your mind or try it anyway?

(This is my answer to the first question.) If I could write any novel I wanted to, I’d write on the subject(s) of:

A nun who leaves the convent in the 1950s (after joining as a high school freshman) to be a mother (for real) and a year later meets the man of her dreams. (That would be my dad.) Hehehehe. That would be based on a true story. Yep. The nun was my mom. BTW, the reason I haven't attempted this yet is that historical fiction requires research and I don't have the time to deal with all of that because I work full time. Now someday if I make mucho bucks as a best-selling author...hehehehe. I know, that's such a stretch of the imagination! Ha! (See how Crystal still influences me?)

Ok, now I tag Betsy - , Mary - , Anna Marie - , Margo -, Carolyn - , Mir - , LaShaunda - , Amy - , and Robin -

Also, if you’re a reader, go ahead and play in the comment section—(note the three areas above) or email me with what you say, and I’ll post it on another day’s blog. I look forward to hearing from you or reading your posts.

Betsy Ann said...

Okay Michelle, we got this! I added you to my list of Blogs I Read =)


Michelle said...

You are very welcome, Bets!

Crystal said...

Michelle, I adore you. You are so complimentary to me (HA!Ok, I had to say that.) Anyway, I LOVE your story idea. You have to do it. What a great story about your parents. Some of the best fiction is truth of the heart.

And I'm so glad I have gotten to know you.

HAH. I just blogged on how I hate getting tagged, and one minute ago I read you're "tag, you're it" email. (A miracle, cause I rarely check the ACFW email, maybe once ever yocuple weeks.)

Let me see if I'm gonna let myself be tagged, as I was just tagged with 10 questions that ended up a LOOOOONG post. :)

Thanks for thinkin' of me.


Mirtika said...

Okay, done. :)


Mirtika said...

Michelle, I just saw your comment about my goof. Darn! I've revised. :)

Mir<--not always good at following "the rules", clearly...
