A small change to the schedule but still a list of blogs you can check out!

I've been tagged...twice!

The Campaigners are on the trail. I've been tagged which means I have to answer 11 questions and forward to 11 Campaigners.  Here goes.

These questions come from Alyssa over at Life Is Good.

1. What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas is my favorite. I love the goodness and giving of this time of year.

2. Who is your idol?
Wow...this is a hard one. I have to say, I don't really have one.  I mean, there are folks that I admire...JK Rowling, Stephen King, Ghandi, but I wouldn't say they are my idol and I didn't have one growing up.

3. If you could visit any place in the world where would you go?
I want to visit the medieval castles. I don't care where. =)

4. What's your favorite genre?
I grew up reading Horror but always loved Fantasy. So maybe some horrorish/fantasy.

5. What or who has inspired your writing the most?
I was inspired as a kid by Stephen King. I wanted to write like him.

6. If you could choose any superpower what would you have?
Telekinisis. I want to move stuff with my mind.

7. If you had to be a villain, who would it be? Why?
I would be Mastermind. I think he was too smart for his own good. And he was a sympathetic character.

Fried Plantains.  Anything my mom cooks really. I miss her since she moved.
