follow friday (11)

This week's question courtesy of Parajunkee's Follow Friday is:

Q: Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?
I know that this is going to be a popular answer, but first I would have to say J.K. Rowling. I would love to know all there is to know about Snape and how she felt while writing the books, etc, over a cuppa. Having briefly, briefly met George R. R. Martin (or GRRM) at his signing he is definitely someone I would want to sit down with for a drink and a hearty meal at a pub and just discuss everything and anything. Including Tyrion, Ned, and Davos. I wouldn't want to know spoilers because there's nothing better than experience a book for the first time.

I also think I'd like to chat with Suzanne Collins. I'd really like to know how it was to write the Hunger Games series. If it were me I would probably have to take copious amounts of breaks and breathers (especially after Rue and at the end and Prim get the idea!) just from the topic at hand. For writing advice I think I'd love to talk to Veronica Roth.

I'm aiming to post a review tomorrow, although I'm not sure for which book. Let's call it review roulette.

I would love to meet Suzanne Collins and JK Rowling too! I would be sooo intimidated by JK Rowling; she is a goddess :}
Thanks for the visit. Old follower, Yay!!
Happy Friday!!

Who wouldn't want to sit down with JK? That'd be wonderful.

As for Collins, I'd have to ask her about Cinna, Finnick and Annie.

I chose JK too! I can't imagine anyone NOT wanting to talk to her and pick her brain on all the intricacies of the series! Collins is another great choice. I absolutely adore The Hunger Games and I admire Katniss!

New Follower, Happy Hoppin!

JK for sure. And actually we'd like to meet Stephenie Meyer, who didn't dream of being a writer like so many of us do, who didn't know Twilight would become this phenomenon, who has faced SO much criticism and belittlement, who at the end of the day is a "normal" mom and wife and sister and daughter too.

Last but definitely not least, probably Robin McKinley. Her style is so different from the norm, so beautiful and rich. We'd love to hear from a seasoned, quiet pro.

Suzanne Collins would be really cool to talk with. Even though I haven't read the Harry Potter series, JKR would still be a great person to chat with.

New follower. For as popular as jk rowlings and Suzanne collins are, I really haven't seen too many people choosing them on this hop. I wonder why?

JKR for sure - who wouldn't want to hold her hostage? Um... by that I mean, have a nice conversation. Of course. *cough*

I haven't read anything by GRRM but especially after the show started, I've been hearing a lot about his books. I'll have to give them a shot!

Hopping through. I definitely agree with JK Rowling. Cool that you met GRR Martin. I still need to read Game of Thrones.

Martin would be interesting to talk with, especially in light of the way some of his readers accused him of sitting around doing nothing! ha!

Recent follower. Did my first FF today. :)

I totally agree about J.K. and Snape. I would also have to give her a good scolding about how she treated him.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm an old follower.
