I Need Friends Friday: Top Reasons This Is The Best Blog Interview My Friends Have Ever Done

It's that time of the week:

(Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.)

Guess what? I'm at a big ol' writers conference rubbing elbows with a bunch of not-rich, somewhat-famous authors (did you know that 99% of authors aren't even remotely rich, and they are almost as not-famous as they are not-rich? Little trivia for you.)

Anyway... So this week's INFF is a retrospective, 'cause I know those are a fav!

I love the quotes they are amazing.

Well, since you're at a writer's conference, I expect you to interview some of the writers you meet there. That's your homework assignment.

Sorry. I'm a former teacher. Some habits die hard.

Tanja said...

Oh...yes. interview some of the authors that are there. Jeanette Rallison or Brandon Sanderson. Love them.

Annette Lyon said...

Thanks for the retrospective--it brought back so many awesome memories. (Edward, Jacob, and Darcy being some of my favorites, of course.)

Krista said...

I'd never read Mr. Darcy's interview. I'm still laughing. Oh, lud.
