Last Friday, Marie Bilodeau tagged me in her blog hop, where authors answer questions they received and challenge three more authors to answer a new set up questions. Think of it like a specfic Ponzi scheme.
She challenged Hayden Trenholm, Geoff Gander and me. Check out Hayden’s and Geoff’s reply.
But unlike her questions, I received four questions that make me think Marie was huffing glue while chugging Robitussin®.
So, here we go:
1. What research would you conduct to write a scene in which squirrels become the sole proprietors of the Febreeze Empire?
Febreeze “Empire”? Now that is fiction. So, I would look into commercial oligopolies in markets where companies have manufactured a need to justify their existence. As well, I’d tried to find sales figures to try to reasonably explain their growing market dominance and what cultural events led to the high demand for air freshener. Perhaps some disaster led to things smelling bad.
2. If you could conjure one mythical creature to finish a book for you, which one would get to select the ending and why?
Elves because they are perfect and therefore would not make tpyos.
3. Bigfoot sex. Discuss.
Bigfoot is not real. Ergo, Bigfoot sex is not real. (End of discussion.)
4. What would you need to do to become the most prolific writer ever (can include crimes, questionable science and lack of morality).
Get a bunch of elves together to type my books and consult on story structure. I mean, they’re perfect. They could have a cut of the royalties in exchange for me not revealing their existence. They could live at my in-laws’ cottage since they seem to like living in trees or some kind of crap like that. However, not everyone likes elves as Kari Maaren points out:
Next week, I’ve tagged Adam Shaftoe, Samantha Beiko and Michael Matheson to answer my questions!
