Random Interview Saturday! Melissa Wardwell
The H. L. Burke Random Interview is not like other interviews. The questions are all over the place. They have no purpose. Their purpose is their lack of purpose.There are nine questions because cats, but these nine questions are subject to change without notice, so the questions one person answers may not be the questions answered by the next author.
Today I heard a knocking at my chamber door, and it was that dang raven again, so I caught him, plucked him, roasted him, and Melissa Wardwell and I shall have him for dinner while she answers my questions.
Would you rather travel to the past or the future?
Past for sure. If the future looks anything like the present, I want no part of it. No corsets, though. I would hate to live that far back that I would have to wear one of those cages
What is the best dream you ever had? Alternately, what is the worst nightmare you’ve ever
I had a dream once that I was working in the church nursery and I went into labor (I was not visibly pregnant yet. I didn't even know I was.) I ended up giving birth on the nursery floor and the baby looked like a life like version of this doll that was in the nursery in reality. Nine months later, I had my second baby boy and he looked just like the baby in my dream. That is the only good dream I remember. The other ones are not so good.
What weather is your writing? A dark and stormy night? A sunshiny day?
I would say winter into spring. Things start bleak but the sun begins to shine and everything is in full bloom by the end of the story.
Your book is being made into a movie, who would you like directing it?
I don't know any directors besides the action ones and my books do not portray that level of action.
During an alien invasion, what would be your weapon of choice?
I would have no clue what to grab besides my 9mm
What’s the most important lesson you ever learned from a cartoon?
"Jesus Loves You Very Much..." Veggie Tales
If you could enter any fictional world, which would you choose?
Any world that involved men in kilts who talked with a thick, Scotish brogue. (being of Scotish descent, I would be in heaven)
You are tasked with eliminating one letter of the alphabet. Which would it be and why?
I am not sure I would. I would say,"Fire me as I can't not in good conscious complete this task." Every letter is important. Now ask me what master of language I would fire......Noah Webster. Being a homeschool teacher, I have learned to hate his changes on the English language. It is maddening to teach it to children who have dyslexic tendencies.
If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?
Tell us something that no one really knows about you.
I love to turn up the jams as loud as I can without breaking the speakers and dance to my hearts content. Sometimes it is worship music and my moves a fluid and lyrical. Most of the time they are pop hits and I bust a move like an old MC Hammer video. Whatever mood I am in, I can translate it in dance. (no, I never took dance classes but I do have rhythm)
