Reader Would You Rather

I don’t know how many of these things I’ve done now. I believe this is the fourth one.

I was tagged by Jasmine this time. She created a new Reader’s Edition of this game.

So, here we go!

Would you rather: Drop your favorite book in the toilet or wood chipper?

Toilet. At least I can attempt to save it whereas it would just be a goner in the wood chipper.

Write an autobigoraphy or never be able to add aspects of yourself into your other writing?

Autobiography, hands down. I believe I’ve lead an interesting life… Maybe not to other people, but oh well. Plus I add myself into my characters all the time. I don’t know how my characters would turn out if I didn’t do that.

Read only the first page of a book or only the last page?

First page. If I read the last page, I wouldn’t know how the characters got there so the ending wouldn’t be satisfying for me. If I read the first page and I’m curious about what happens, I can just write the ending myself.

Write your next book with no music of any kind or with a soundtrack that’s not even closely related to your content?

I can do no music. I usually listen to instrumental while writing, but I can also deal with silence.

Have the ending of a book spoiled or not ever know what happens?

Spoilers. I don’t mind them. Never have, probably never will.

Read your writings to an audience of ten people who love you or to 10,000 people you don’t know?

10,000 strangers. I don’t care if they judge me and my writing. Just as long as they heckle me while I’m reading, I suppose.

Only be able to read ebooks or physical books?

Physical books. I read both formats, but I like seeing them displayed on my shelves. Books make great collections.

Only be able to write series or stand-alones?

Series. I always have new ideas in my head for my characters.

Loan your book to a careless friend or throw it off a building?

Loan to a friend. I can at least get it back and take care of it again. If I was the one to throw it off the building them I’d feel like I betrayed it and was mean to it. Objects have feelings too, you know.

Have to dog ear your pages or never remember your place in the book?

Dog ear. I don’t normally do it, but it would give the book a sense of use to it, if that makes sense. I like to keep my books as clean and crisp as I can, but I also like it when they look worn. You can tell you really enjoyed the book then.

Write a really famous book but never write a one hit again or write several great books loved by a smaller audience?

Several great books. I don’t care whether I have an audience or not (of course it would be nice to get paid!), but I love writing and wouldn’t be able to stop.

Spend a bunch of time developing characters and wing everything else or the same but with plot?

Spend a lot of time with the plot. The characters will just ignore me and develop themselves anyway.

Have to read your least favorite book monthly or never be able to read your favorite book again?

Read my least favorite book. I always tend to get something new out of it with each time I read a book or watch a movie or something. I think I would understand it more with each read and then learn to enjoy it.

Write a book without using conjunctions or have every sentence of your book begin with one?

Every sentence. Why not?

Would you rather be famous during your writing career or famous post-mortem (or after death)?

I don’t care much for the fame and glory of it all, but I think I have to say famous during my writing career. I would love to have an excuse to go on Ellen DeGeneres’s show and meet her.

And there you have it! Another Would You Rather done.

Go check out Jasmine’s answers to her own questions. I’m not going to take anyone, but if you would like to do this, feel free.

Just let me know because I would love to see your answers as well!
