It’s that time of the week which I set aside to SHARE MY WORLD.
Share your world is a challenge hosted by Cee Neuner. In the challenge she asks five questions and in sharing our answers we, her contributors, share our worlds. Check out the underlined link above to see how Cee’s other contributors answered. The weekly questions and my answers are below:
Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?
Never. I think I am way to paranoid to run out of gas. I am constantly checking the gauge. I don’t usually fill up until the low fuel light goes on, though, unless I am on a long trip and then I never let it get below a half tank.
Which are better: black or green olives?
I like black olives best.
If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?
OK. I am going to take a flight of fancy here. I am going to be an explorer of the dimensions beyond ours.
Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?
Here are three from a book I am currently reading entitled, THE WAR OF ART, by Steven Pressfield
“…fear doesn’t go away. The warrior and the artist live by the same code of necessity, which dictates that the battle must be fought anew every day.”
“The working artist will not tolerate trouble in her life because she knows trouble prevents her from doing her work. The working artist banishes from her world all sources of trouble. She harnesses the urge for trouble and transforms it in her work.”
and while this last quote is not really my favorite I thought it was pretty insightful concerning the difficulty of being an artist.
“You know Hitler wanted to be an artist. At eighteen he took his inheritance, seven hundred kronen and moved to Vienna to live and study. He applied to the Academy of Fine Arts and later to the school of architecture. Ever see one of his paintings? Neither have I. Resistance beat him. Call it overstatement but I’ll say it anyway; It was easier for Hitler to start World War II than it was for him to face a blank square of canvas.”
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful that this week I have been ploughing through some of the writing assignments my publisher has given me. I am grateful to have a plan that prioritizes my writing time in place. This next week I am looking forward to working that plan again.
