Sentimental Serendipity

Earlier this week, writer & blogger Brandi Boddie tagged me to answer eleven fun questions, and then pass the quiz on to eleven blogging buddies. Here we go!

1) Book or Movie, and why? Definitely book! I love the interesting details in a book that are usually not included in a film.

2) Real book, or e-book? Real book. I enjoy holding a book, and am a collector of books. It's fun to see my small library getting larger!

3) Funniest thing done in the last five years? Oh boy, I've never told anyone this! We are big Seattle Seahawk fans - whenever they score a touchdown, I do a silly dance! (Unfortunately, I haven't been doing a lot of dancing the last few years!)

4) How would your best friend describe you? She would probably use the word tenacious. (Hopefully not stubborn!) When I get something in my mind, it takes a lot for me to give up.

5) Do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch? I don't knowingly put myself into my books - but my family and friends have said that they see me in my main characters.

6) Favorite car and why? It would probably be a Range Rover. It seems to be the perfect blend of rugged and regal. (However, I drive a ten-year-old Saab!)

7) Would your choice of party be a catered meal or a barbecue out back? Since we have barbecues quite frequently in the summer, I would say a catered meal. It's fun being pampered!

8) What's your favorite season and why? Autumn. I love the changing colors, football, and leaving summer clothing behind!

9) What specific lesson have you learned - spiritual, educational, occupational? Persevere - no matter what! One of my favorite quotes is from Winston Churchill: "Never, never, never, never give up!"

10) Besides writing, what's your favorite thing to do when you get some extra time?  My three favorite things to do: read, spend time in nature, and spending time with my husband and our three grown sons.

11) What's one place you can be found at least one time every week? Our community library. I volunteer there every Tuesday - it's a blast!

I'll be contacting eleven of my blogging buddies soon - thanks again, to Brandi Boddie!

I'd love to hear your answer to #9 - please feel free to share!


  1. Loved getting to know you better, Victoria. Fun post.

    My # 9 was "Fear not"

    1. Thanks, Loree. It definitely takes courage putting yourself out there as a writer - thanks for the good advice!

  2. Enjoyed your answers, Victoria. My answer to #9 is "don't sweat the small stuff". :)

    1. Thanks, Linda. I must admit, that's sometimes a difficult thing for me to do - but I'm working on it!
