1. secret?! cat's out of the bag, it's non-fictional travel stuff, like everybody else. if we're speaking hypothetically of another ... mmm ... secret would lend itself to poetry, but certainly not as a career ... i'd like to think it could be spunky, quirky, witty, hysterical fictional. yeah, let's go with that genre.

2. like i'd tell!! that defeats the purpose!

3. talked to the american half of my friends.

4. arranging photos -- in albums, display cases, etc.

5. cooking.

1. You are embarking on a secret writing career. What will the genre be? - Murder mystery novel
2. ..And what pseudonym will you use? - All I'll say is that it'll be shorter than my real name (which wouldn't fit on the cover, with or without the novel title)
3. It's been way too long since I..rode by bicycle (been either raining or too windy of a weekend)
4. Something time-consuming and fiddly, that's worth the effort - craft!
5. ..And something that's not - "fixing" the English of a report that won't be corrected anyway (but I can't help myself).

Deb said...

1. Young adult fiction.
2. Something with Lester in it because I had that as a nickname when I was a kid.
3. Did a tidy of the top of the walk-in-robe and the piles are now starting to look really precarious. Only a matter of time before an avalanche.
4. Sewing. But I rarely do it.
5. Painting finger or toe nails. Waste of time.

Dawn Merz said...

1. Fiction along the lines of Louisa May Alcott and L.M. Montgomery.
2. Elizabeth Bentley.
3. have been in touch with some very important people who are dear friends but haven't heard from me... bother!!
4. Counted cross stich.
5. Taxes. Okay, so it is actually worth the effort, but I still don't really like it. Talk about fiddly, especially if you are a farmer running a small business (not exactly my position here in Rose Bay, but I have been there!!)

Ben McLaughlin said...

Yeah, I know late again.

Pedro- yes!! Storyboards!!

Al- I'd say anything too fiddly to do with decorating any kind of food is a waste of time.

Crazyjed- Sometimes I ponder getting into knitting. It looks satisfying.

Belle- At least you HAVE travelled overseas:)

Kim- I'm excited that you are actually writing something, proper like!

George- Ironing blows. I just put a shirt on, then a warm jacket, and let my body heat do the work.

Laetitia- If the 'fixing' satisfies you, well I guess that's something!

Deb- Is that permission for me to now call you Lester from here on in? Go on.

Dawn- number 3 is me all over.. yuck, I hate the weight of that hanging over!
