Share Your World 2014 – Week 13. Exploring brave new worlds…

Share Your WorldThanks to Cee, as always, for providing the Share Your World feature.

Here are my answers to this week’s questions.

Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets? 

I believe anything is possible. I also think the subject intrigues writers because the mere concept of life on other planets allows us to unleash our imagination, and dream up a new civilization. It’s empowering really.

What type of pet or pets do you not want to have?

Do bees count as pets? Sherlock Holmes in the show Elementary has a few hives on the roof of his apartment building. I can’t think of anything worse than the amplified sound of bees busy at work. I can hear them just thinking about it…

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

I struggle with the colour questions because my brain automatically goes to yellow. I guess, whatever ‘colour’ I’m feeling on the inside, I’d like to be bright and optimistic and bring a little happiness.

What type of transportation would you be? Why?

If I can choose, regardless of personality or the fact it’s purely fictional, I’d choose the Starship Enterprise. For no other reason than the fact it’s totally cool!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for my beautiful girls, because they are my ‘yellow’ – they bring light and laughter and their own special kind of joy.

I’m looking forward, in the coming weeks, of getting to know my fellow camp mates at Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m unpacked my virtual duffel bag and I’m raring to go. This is the first day of thirty wonderful days of guilt free writing!


Thanks for reading.



I think I’d be a portal that shifts between distant worlds. A portal where one can instantly be in a city on another planet, even as far away as a planet in one of the local group of galaxies. However, I think I’d have to worry about the Photino Birds (they would interfere).

    Excellent answer, and pretty cool too!
    Thanks for the comment.

      Well, the convergent evolution thing may actually prevent other technologically advanced civilizations from looking any more weird to us than punkers with rainbow mowhawks. So getting around these alien cities wouldn’t be all that… Alien!

      Imagine that…if other life forms were to visit regularly enough that we wouldn’t even bat an eyelid at seeing our ‘new neighbours’ walking down the street! A kind of ‘Men in Black’ without all the secrecy 🙂

Another great set of answers 🙂

I watch Sherlock Holmes to. Great show. I’m with you….no bees at all no way no how. Thanks for sharing. I like your yellow.

I like that…no way, no how! It about sums it up 🙂 I keep trying to convince myself bees are not the enemy. My name actually means honey-bee in Greek and a close friend bought me a beautiful necklace. But it’s just not happening! Thanks for commenting, and for the questions.
