This is the Follow Fest, 
hosted by Melissa Maygrove
The purpose of this blogfest is to meet other writers and build our platforms.

Fiction or nonfiction? 
~ fiction

What genres do you write?

~ Maroon 5 is my all-time #1 band.
~  I'm a big fan of UFC and MMA. 
~ I've been with the same bowling team for years.
~ I get my left and right mixed up. When someone says, "It's on the left," I question which left because I tend to look at something like I'm actually in it, so it seems backwards to others.

  1. Thanks for being part of Follow Fest. :)

  2. I heart you with every molecule of my being!! You will be published one way or another! I just know it!!
    Nice call on adding Cover Girls info!! Duh on my part.

  3. I bowled a bit in high school, and off and on since then. I often forget how much fun it can be. :)

  4. Nice to meet you, though I said it over on Cover Girls as well. I've got the left-right issue as well. Maybe it's a florist thing. Passenger-side and driver-side works better for me.

    1. It's good to know I'm not the only one with the left-right issue. :)
      So nice to meet another florist!

  5. Nice to meet you through the Follow Fest. I struggle with the left-right too. Marching band in high school was pretty tricky--I had to hold something, like a bracelet in my right hand so I wouldn't screw up the formation drills and crash into people. Our drill instructor was ruthless, too!

    1. I was in marching band, too! I wish I would've thought of the bracelet idea. Brilliant!

  6. Nice to meet you! Here's hoping you achieve your dream of publication! ^_^

  7. Great to meet you in this Follow Fest!

  8. I love love-at-first-sight stories :-)

  9. Both left-right and east-west give me trouble; I never thought about it in terms of being the object though, that's interesting. (Probably more like I don't know where I am. Gets interesting teaching mathematical transformations.) That "Express Yourself" meme looks interesting too, good idea!

  10. Hi Jackie, nice to meet you. I used to have trouble with left and right as well, but someone taught me a trick. If you hold out your hands with your palms facing away from you, and you make an L shape with your thumb and forefinger, the one that actually looks like an L is your left. Of course, if you're like me and you're dyslexic that can get confusing as well, but I still figured it out after a while. :-D

    1. Dani gave me that tip, but I forget to use it! LOL Go figure, right?

  11. Yay for writing romance! And wow, four sons! Holy moly, that must keep you hopping! Great to find out more about you through Follow Fest!


  12. Nice to meet you through Follow Fest! I think the meeting and knowing you were destined to be with your husband is super romantic. Great little tidbit.

  13. I get left and right muddled tooo :-O I tend to wear bracelets on my left hand ONLY to solve this problem. My left is always heavier.



Comments make me happy. So do photos of Adam Levine... <3
