So, yesterday the gals at The Writing Playground asked me to Guest Blog. I was extremely honored since they run a quality site there helping writers who are going solo.
The way it works is, I wrote the initial blog and readers could post questions and comments throughout the day. The site was really hopping and they kept me quite busy. It was so much fun and the questions were terrific. One in particular was really tough for me to answer and I thought I’d share it with you.
Kathy asked: Barbara, I’ve been wondering all day, if you could interview any author throughout time, which author would you choose and why?
My answer: Wow, that’s tough. Oscar Wilde because of his great dialog. Wm Shakespeare to ask if he really wrote it all. And finally, the great Erma Bombeck. She was hilarious and I bet she would have been a great interview.
Some Bombeck quotes:
"The only reason I would take up jogging is so I could hear heavy breathing again."
"In general, my children refused to eat anything that hadn’t danced on TV."
"When humor goes, there goes civilization."
"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me."
Now I’d like to ask you, if you could interview/meet any author throughout time, who would you choose and why?
Bottom Line: A final word of advice from the amazing Erma: "Never accept a drink from a urologist."
