Open House Day 53 - Hollie Snider
My first answer? “So I won't kill you.” That response makes people very uneasy. Some will move away, never turning their back on me, while others just laugh nervously, trying to figure out if I'm joking or not. The funny responses though, are those who actually get offended. “Why would you want to kill me?”
Um, because I can and won't go to jail. Seems obvious to me.
When I'm not writing, I'm at the park with the dogs or going on long drives through the mountains of Colorado finding inspiration for new stories. I like to paint, though I'm not very good, and I like quilting. I'm better at that. However, no matter what I'm doing, paper and some sort of writing instrument are always with me just waiting for ideas to fall out of my brain. I have even been known to write on napkins if I have to.
If you want to know more about me, visit my website at www.holliesnider.com or my member page on www.csfwg.org. I can also be found on Twitter as hollie_snider and on Facebook. I will be at AnthoCon 2011 too. www.anthocon.com If you make it to the Con, stop by and say, “Hi.” Just don't ask me why I write – I may have to kill you.
