The Life Of A Writer – Ten random things about me as a writer
One of the most frequently visited posts on my blog is the Top ten things you should know about me as a writer. It was a post to share with my readers a little about me as a person and a fun way to get to know my readers as well. So in the spirit of you getting to know me better and me doing the same, here’s ten random things you should know about me as a writer:
1.) I only watch television when I’m watching shows that are recorded on my DVR. This allows me the opportunity to live life knowing that I don’t have to schedule my day around a particular show.
2.) I haven’t watched the news since about 2008. I’m not sure about your local news, but the news here in Chicago is doom and gloom and not a good way to start my day.
3.) I love reading inspirational books. It’s very important that I stay positive so I always try to have a book with a positive message handy.
4.) I LOVE YouTube. I enjoy watching videos on my favorite subjects from haircare to fashion. Speaking of….are you subscribed to my channel The Life Of A Writer?
5.) In 2008, I drastically changed the way I eat. I cut out processed foods, white rice, white flour, white bread, junk foods and deep fried foods. I mostly eat organic.
6.) Reality television is a guilty pleasure. There I said it!
7.) I frequently have phrases/sayings that I repeat for months at a time, until a friend or family member starts to say it, then I let it go.
8.) I cannot express to you how much I LOVE popcorn. It has gotten to the point where I’ll open a bag and literally can’t stop eating it. Love love love popcorn! Oh and ditto for green smoothies, check out my recipe.
9.) I really enjoy going to the gym. I was very athletic as a child and had gotten out of being physical until I started going to the gym some years ago.
10.) When I’m working on a manuscript, its very difficult for me to write if there is someone in the house with me. Ideally, I’d like to be home alone.
