I've Been Tagged! and You Really Like Me--I Think...

I was tagged by Deniz. I don't think it's good to tag you right back, so I'll just say thanks. You mentioned the Cherry Hill Houseparty from last summer. I just realized yesterday that this time last year, I was working hard to prepare to host all you lovely writers! It's only been a year and yet it seems like ages ago. Then we spent the fall in Istanbul. What's next?
Here's the questions I had to answer:
1. Do you think you're hot? Of course! It is summer in Georgia, isn’t it?
2. Upload a picture or wallpaper you're using at the moment.--(Image removed for copyright)

3. When was the last time you ate chicken meat? Today.

4. A song you listened to recently: “Down to the River to Pray” It counts if I was singing it at the time, doesn’t it?

5. What were you thinking as you were doing this? How blasted HOT it is! Is the air conditioning working?
6. Do you have nicknames? What are they? ARRGHHH! I hate this question!  I hate all my nicknames. The only one I’ll tell is the one I gave myself—Zanna Maria. So there!

7. Tag eight bloggers:
Laura at Heaven to Earth
Diana and Mary at WOOF
Denise at L'Aussie Writing 
Rachael at Rach Writes
8. A few questions about your tagged friends...

Who's listed as number one? Marie, the Flying Cheetah and the expert at 100-word movie reviews
Say something about number 5. Tara is a great writing buddy. We love sharing crits. I want your books out so I can hold them in my hands, Tara!

How did you get to know number 3? Laura is in my local crit group—Carrollton Creative Writers Club—and she’s a heck of a writer. Laura, you wanted to know how this platform building works, so now you know. ; )

How about number 4? The ladies at WOOF—Mary and Diana—are excellent writers and lovely friends. Be sure and check out their Women Only Over Fifty blog if you like humor.

Leave a message for number 6.  Carol, you’re a wonderful writer. Thanks for asking me to write about the lessons my momma taught me.

Leave a lovey-dovey message for number 2. I love you for offering to be a beta reader for FRIENDLY FIRE. How much more validation can I ask for? Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Do number 7 and number 8 have any similarities? Denise and Rachael are experts at creating writing platforms. Everything I know, I learned from them.

And hey what about number 9? No fair! You said list 8!!! Okay, I’ll add Charlotte just because she's so good.
You Really Like Me--I think...
I couldn't resist channeling a little Sally Fields. ; ) At least 18 people do.  Did any of you notice the new like button I added on the left? I think I did it correctly, but every time I try to link to my author page, it goes to my Utilities page not my wall. Would some of you lovely people try it--and LIKE me while you do--and let me know if it works. ; )


  1. Thanks for thinking of me Zan! And of course I want to be a beta reader. I love your story.

  2. *grins* Thanks for the tag Zan Marie :)



  3. You're very welcome and deserving! ; )

  4. Thanks, Zan Marie! This is cool! We have Bible School this week, and I have been working in my mom's yard since school ended for the summer. Throw in entertainment for my daughter and a one-year-old, and that adds up to NO TIME! I truly want to call you on all this networking stuff. Thank you for thinking of me. You're such a precious friend, and encourager!

  5. You're welcome, Laura. You can do it next week if your schedule allows. No rush. ; )

  6. Gah, I don't envy you that heat - not a fan of summer. Hehe

  7. Me me! Sign me up for the beta reading! I, er, named a couple of my Farmville sheep after Samantha and Laura Grace [g] Mack's next as soon as I can breed a ram... I've got a farmful of literary characters!

  8. Trisha,
    I'm not a fan of smog and that's all we have--no rain, no breeze, nothing. Yuck!

    I promise not to forget. I've just got to get it done first. ; )

    Hmmm. Mack, the ram. It does fit part of his personality. ; )
