Question & Answer

So, I like the idea of having an interactive blog. I started this (much longer ago than it seems, in fact) in an effort to develop my casual, chatty, nonfiction voice. And heck, I'm not sure how much it's really developed, but I've had a blast meeting new folks on here and, although my updates have been more sparse as of late, rest assured that I'm not going anywhere. I'm just going a little slower.

Just a few excellent example questions.
Reading comments is always super fun, and I try to respond to everyone, but if you guys are like me, I don't always notice when someone replies to my comment.

That got me thinking, what if I throw this out there? Ask me something—anything. A serious question, a funny question, a random question, off-the-wall, it's all fair game.

I think this could be fun, and I'd like for you guys to have the chance to get to know who I am better. Especially since you've been good enough to follow, read, comment, or any of the aforementioned.

I've never tried this before, so it could be a little sloppy, but here's what I'm thinking. I'll give you guys a couple of weeks to get your questions in. You can post them as comments, or ask me via Twitter (@Pencil_to_Paper).

So, ask away, and ask before August 10th, and let's see what we come up with?

What do you say?

Up for a little Q & A?

I like your thoughts, Sarah. Slow is good, actually. An informal voice reaches more people, and when you reach people with genuine ideas, it's the first step to getting to know them. Let me know about the interactive component; I've always wanted to have a dialogue, rather than a monologue.

@Valarie, thank you! I thought it would be fun and interesting to reach out to the lovely people who follow my blog (the fact that I have followers at all is totally humbling!) so hopefully I'll get some response. I'm excited at the possibility. Depending on how it goes, I may cover each question in its' own blog post, or if some questions don't require very long answers, I may answer more than one in a single post. It's really an experiment for me at the moment, I've never tried anything like this. I appreciate your comment, and thanks for checking out my blog! :)

What do you do when you have a writer's block? I have two academic articles to write and I cant find any motivation to work.

I really like your blog and you obviously know what you are doing. I just started blogging and it would really mean a lot to me if you could just take a few minutes of your day and check out my blog .
And my question to you would be : Have you ever seen someone fall over a banana peel?

What first motivated you to start a blog? What is your dream career? What is one thing you want to see before you die?
