Ten Truths and 2 Lies: A Guessing Game

Greetings, gang!  I stole another idea from Scattered Scribblings.  She played a game of 10 truths and 2 lies, where she posted 12 things about herself, 10 of which were true.  And all of her readers got to guess which ones were lies.

Want to play?

Okay, here are 12 things about me:

1. I am married.

2. I am 5 ft 3 3/4 inches tall.

3. My mother self-published a book when I was a child.

4. I have read Plenilune by Jenny Freitag.

5. I wear glasses.

6. I ran over a toad with a car.

7. I love the sound that crickets make.

8. Clear blue skies are my favorite.

9. I like dark green colors.

10. I am a midwife.

11. I used to live in Alaska.

12. I love to eat spinach.

Leave your guesses in the comments below! Which are true and which are false?  I can't wait to see what you know about me!

And, if you want to play this on your own blog, leave me a link in the comments below so I can come guess on your page!


  1. I am guessing that you used to live in Alaska and liking clear blue skies are the lies. I am probably wrong.

  2. Hmmm....6 and 8? I hate these games, lol

  3. It's fun to hear your answers, though, Julian. ;)
    I'm fascinated that both you and Skye guessed #8 as one of the lies. That's very interesting.
    I'm posting the answers next week so check back to see if you were right!

Character Creation by Emily Ann Putzke
My character in Ain’t We Got Fun is Georgiana (Gi) Rowland, the older sister of Bess. Their family is struggling during the Great Depression, so Gi takes off for NYC to make a fortune and help them out. The sisters recount their adventures, joys and heartaches to each other. My co-author, Emily Chapman, and I wrote this story in letter form in January. Our characters are very different people! Here are a 5 things that helped me bring Gi to life, and give her a personality that’s all her own.
1.  Give Your Characters Flaws None of us are perfect, so our characters shouldn't be either. Gi is a fun, loyal, light hearted girl with big dreams. But she has a flaw that she struggles with throughout the entire story. Pride. She’s very stubborn, independent, and doesn’t want anything from anybody.
2. Use That Flaw to Stretch and Change Your Character Pride gets Gi in quite a few scrapes. Throughout AWGF, she’s constantly battling with it. Everytime she thi…

Rooglewood Countdown: 9 1/2 weeks: Why Yours?

Yep, time is picking up speed.  Especially since I have other things to keep me busy.
     Here is my questions for you today: what makes your story special?  In the comments below, I want you to finish this sentence "It's a Snow White story, but..."  Did you change the setting?  Is Snow White the ugliest in all the land?  How did you swap out the elements of your story to make it unique?

Ragged Nails: A Post about Artist Insecurities

Merry Christmas Eve!  I hope your holidays are bright!!!

     My contest entry has been in Rooglewood's hands for 5 days.  My mental status has gone from the over-the-top excited and relieved when I first submitted a steady optimism that my story actually might have a decent chance this a closed-off state where I was convinced that I didn't even need to worry about it until next today.
     Today I am tore up with the certain feeling of my stories significant and amateur flaws.  Who would read this?  How can this compare to the other amazing authors chosen by Rooglewood?  What was I thinking to submit such a meager tale?
     I do this every year.  And it is a passing feeling. I know it is.  The artist cycle is something I've talked about before on this blog.  It helps to know that this is normal and that I will be excited about my story again tomorrow.
    But, oh, those other authors are so intimidating!
    How are you guys holding up?  Sti…
