Not too long ago, G. Parker tagged several of us at LDS Writers Blogck. The rules are that you’re supposed to remove the blog site at the top of the list (below), move all the blog site names up one, and add yourself to the bottom.
So, here goes …

LDS Writers Blogck (C.L. Beck)
What were you doing ten years ago? 1997 : Wow, who can remember that long ago? Hmm, let’s see. I would have been 29 (again), so whatever I was doing, it was with a lot more energy and enthusiasm.
What were you doing one year ago? July 2006: The same thing I’m doing now … trying to come up with an idea so stupendous that every publisher in the country will want it. Okay, maybe not every publisher. I’ll settle for Simon and Schuster. Or maybe Random House. All right, the truth be known, I’ll settle for anybody that doesn’t make me pay to publish my stupendous idea.
Five snacks you enjoy: Aside from the Chex Party Mix that I shouldn’t have just eaten? Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Oh, and chocolate.
Five songs you know all the lyrics to: Almost any song that I like. And a few that seem to stick in my mind, unbidden—for example, the theme to “Dog, the Bounty Hunter”.
Things you would do if you were a millionaire: Start a scholarship fund for married students with kids; send my best friend and her husband to Hawaii for a vacation; start a publishing house so my blogger friends could easily get published; send medicine, food and books to kids in third world countries ... hmmm, I think I need to be more than a millionaire to accomplish all that I dream of doing.
Five bad habits: Reading email when I should be writing a blog, writing a blog when I should be writing a column, writing a column when I should be finishing my latest kid’s story, writing a kid’s story when I should be finishing that novel from a year ago.
Five things you like to do: Write, take photos, go camping (in a nice, plush trailer with an indoor potty), read, hobnob with fellow writers.
Things you will never wear again: Hot pants or a mini-skirt. Somehow they look funny with garments hanging out below. Not to mention the fact that I don’t have the legs I used to have. Apparently someone stole my legs in the night and left these short, fat things I have now.
Five favorite toys: Canon camera, Corky Porky Pie (my dog). As hot as it is right now, an air conditioner is one of my favorite toys!
Where will you be in ten years? Ancient. Heck, I’ll be as old as the trees. Oh ... sorry, I thought you said, "WHAT will you be in ten years?".
Five people to tag: Karen Hoover, Wendy Elliott, Callie Olsen, Cathy Witbeck, and Triple Nickle.(If any of you don't have a blog, you can post your responses at Author's Incognito, or as a comment at LDS Writers Blogck).
