Wow! Most of you guessed that my blade-like fingernails were my lie. Although my fingernails aren't exactly blades, they are sharp when it comes to picking at my face (which is one of my worst habits ever, something that I do while I concentrate). Ugh. I wish I could stop, but most of the time, I don't even know I'm doing it. So, no. that wasn't my lie.
And as flattered as I am that people think I have a flawless complexion, I don't. The zits are there. Every year, I think that I might grow out of them, but maybe I'm just not really growing up. Maybe writing YA and eavesdropping on teenage conversation actually has an affect :) And since that's something I won't stop doing, I'll just have to learn to live with the everlasting adult acne. Oh well.
And as for my love of candy...I do try to start with just two pieces. That doesn't mean I won't go back for more, but I know if I only grab one, it won't be enough. You may also be thinking of small candy when you say I grab handfuls, but I love love love taffy and two pieces are usually satisfying :)
And oddly enough, I can touch my nose with my tongue. If I ever meet you and you remember that I have that quirky talent. Go ahead and ask. I'm not afraid to show you :)
I suppose you want to know what my lie was then, right? Here it is.
I haven't cherished books since my childhood.
Gasp! I know, kind of an unthinkable thing as an aspiring author, but I just wasn't into it growing up. Not that I hated it completely, but I always said I did. Of course I read some classics like the Boxcar Children, Goosebumps,
American Girls, and Harry Potter.
But it wasn't until I picked up Twilight four years ago that I really turned into a reading hobbit! And now I'm catching up. I live with a book by my side and always have another one lined up to read next. I was completely shocked when one of my friends came to me for a something to read. She said I was the book queen!
Proof that miracles do happen :) So, what was the book that got you hooked? How long have you cherished books?
