Question Me Good - Pt. 6

I'm getting this in just under the wire today. I just got back from a night of scrapbooking with the girls and I'm buggy eyed with delirium, but I had to answer a question and get my post in for NaBloPoMo. Today's questions come from Lulu.

What other creative things do you do?

Well, I just started scrapbooking and while I don't do it often I find it's incredibly addictive. I'm really enjoying the creativity of coming up with the perfect layout for my pictures and keepsakes. I also like to make my own cards. I went through a rubber stamping phase where I would spend hours on the weekends making cards for every occassion imaginable. I'm still using those cards. Photography is my favorite creative outlet, though. I've always been known as the girl with the camera. If I wasn't writing, I'd probably pursue photography more. One of my goals for 2009 is to take a photography class.

Do you write full-time?

I work full-time as a technical writer, but my hours at work aren't all spent writing. And now that I've been promoted to a management position, my writing time is even more limited. I do a lot of editing, though. I also freelance part-time, taking on projects that get done in the evenings and on the weekends. I'd like to get a few steady clients and start freelancing full-time some day. For now, I'll take what I can get.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, tomorrow, where would you go, and what 5 items would you take?

That's a hard one. I think I'd go to Italy, either Venice or Tuscany. I've always had a fascination with Italy. I'm assuming I can buy clothes, notebooks and pens, and find a place to stay, so I'd take My Love, my cat, my laptop, my book collection, and my iPod. It doesn't take much to keep me happy.

Where would you go tomorrow if you could go anywhere and what 5 things would you take?

If you've got a burning question for me but haven't had a chance to ask it, you can go to the original post and leave your question in a comment. I'll keep answering a question or two a day until they're all answered.

If you're just tuning in, check out the rest of the series.

Thanks for answering my questions!!!

I am also a novice photographer and wish I was better. I have dabbled in knitting, sewing, scrapbooking, beading & other paper crafts!! As for writing, I love it, but don`t do it enough but wish I could.

If I could go anywhere in the world tomorrow I would go to Tokyo to see my friends as I miss it despereately. I would take my fiance, my camera, my laptop, my journal & Tokyo doesn`t have good cheese. I am lucky that most of my stuff is in storage there anyway including at least a weeks worth of winter clothes!

Hi Ami! I'm enjoying reading your answers to everyone's questions. It's fun to learn a bit more about you.

Ami said...

Lulu - Thanks for the great questions. I hope you get the opportunity to travel to Tokyo soon! Maybe you could pack me in your suitcase, too. :)

Reluctant - I'm glad you're enjoying it. It's teaching me a lot about myself (and my readers). I think it was one of the best ideas I've ever had (*ahem* stolen).

I would go to Italy too! Specifically Venice, Florence, and Rome. I would take my hubby, my kids, my camera, my laptop, and extra bags to carry back all the goods I know I would buy there. ;-)

Ami said...

over coffee - Extra bags! I didn't think of that, but probably because I think if I go, I'm not coming back. :)
