Why did you start a blog in the first place?
I was required to, as part of my Computer-Mediated Communication class in college. I wanted to go farther after the class ended, so Hot Shot Headlines was born after several rounds of trial and error. I’m sad that Dr. B. is no longer with us, but he left a lasting legacy on Longwood’s campus and community, and the world around him.
What is your favorite book?
The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
I was required to read it in high school, but I fell in love. I re-read this book every single year. I love the time period. The characters are intriguing. There’s an air of mystery. When I first read it, I was sad when it ended, hungry for more.
Afterward, I was inspired to read more of Fitzgerald’s works, and I did at least one research paper on his other books. The time period – The Jazz Age – is almost intoxicating. Reading the stories of Americans in Paris and other expatriates made me want to travel all of Europe and explore their world.
What do you dislike the most?
I absolutely loathe spelling and grammatical errors. I’m always checking and double-checking any type of written communication I make before I let it go. I also spell out every word in my text messages!
Other than that, I’m not much of a hater – Unless you’re a distracted driver, an incredibly lazy or unmotivated person, or someone who is a complete asshole to me, my family, or friends. You will face my wrath if you mess with my family or close friends, and trust me, it’s not a pretty picture.
What is your favorite food item from the mall?
It’s a tie – Orange chicken with fried rice, and Auntie Anne’s pretzels! There’s a great Chinese place in the local mall that makes some of the best orange chicken and fried rice. And you can’t go wrong with Auntie Anne’s – I love their Garlic Parmesan pretzels with the cheese dip!
What is your favorite past time?
Another tie – Reading and writing. I love books, and as soon as I finish one and write a short review for the blog, I usually feel the need / itch to pick up another one to start within 24 hours.
When I’m not reading, you’ll usually find me working on the blog, or dreaming up a story idea in one of my notebooks, on a legal pad, or on my laptop. I’ve been writing stories down for well over 18 years now, and I always have a working pen and notebook / pad of paper with me at all times.
