Normally, I don’t do these kinds of posts, but as my blog ideas bank is currently in the red, I thought I’d give it a go. I was nominated by Peter Tarkulich, the author of the brilliant Bardsworth – if you like Footloose, you’ll love it, so give it a go. Here are the five questions he gave me:
1.) What is your ideal day like, from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep?
My ideal ‘regular day’ would be to spend a day writing, with breaks to go for walks in the park near my house, and then spending the evening dancing or hanging around with my friends, possibly playing board games. I am a simple creature.
2.) What routines do you have to keep yourself productive?
Heh…yeah, this is something I’m still working out. I know what routines I have to keep myself unproductive, and they generally involve social media, Netflix, and running away from the desk to visit coffee shops.
3.) What’s your favourite food-related guilty pleasure?
I spent far longer than I was supposed to being a student, and I still haven’t shaken some of the more traditional student eating habits. There is something faintly wonderful about a bowl of pasta with cheese and ketchup.
4.) Coffee or tea? Why?
Both. Constantly. Just give me two buckets and a straw.
5.) What is your current passion?
I really want it to be my work in progress, but I’m languishing in the doldrums of writer’s block at the moment. I’m falling ever-deeper in love with swing dancing; I’ve been doing lindy hop for two years, am about to start learning balboa, and have plans to join a Collegiate Shag class (apparently, puns are mandatory).
Alice’s books are available on Amazon and Smashwords. Her webcomics, co-created and illustrated by Emily Brady, can be found at the Footloose website. Ally rambles about writing, feminism, and odd questions that cross her mind on Twitter and Facebook.
