Wrenn's amazing voice (for once) overshadows her weight when she lands a lead role in the high school musical. Pushing to get thinner by opening night, Wrenn's waistline shrinks as she learns all the wrong ways to lose weight from a new "it-girl" friend in the show. By opening night, the old Wrenn has almost disappeared. After a crisis reveals her weight-loss tricks, Wrenn realizes there are much more important things than being thin, popular, or even dating a hunk.
Today, Leigh has stopped by to play my Six-Of-One-Half-Dozen-Of-The-Other Interview. (And does a particularly good job at it!)Feel free to elaborate as much as you want (except for the one-word Bonus question, of course, in which I see you’ve made up your own rules!!!):
1) Would you rather be the Bestselling Rockstar Author or an Acclaimed Literary Award Winner?
Bestselling Rockstar Author!
2) Make people laugh, cry, or hide under the covers?
I’d like to make people laugh AND cry: whatever the story called for and would help the book resonate.
3) Retire early or just keep writing from your beach house(s)?
Write from my beach house!
4) FaceBook or MySpace?
5) After a period, one space or two?
Oh My Goodness. This is a pet peeve of mine, because I teach college English classes (online) and apparently half the population didn’t get the memo that because the font faces are different on word processors you only need one space after a period. Yes, I’m looking at you Criminal Justice Professionals and US Military! One Space Only. And don’t try to argue with me because I’m the professor…and what I say goes. Don’t bite the hand that grades you.
And your bonus question: What ONE WORD of advice would give to any aspiring writer?
StickToIt Since I’ve decided that what I say goes, this is now one word, because if sticktoitiveness can be a word…WAIT! Sticktoitiveness! Don’t believe me? http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sticktoitiveness. Yes, that is my advice. :)
