There ya go, here’s a little about our favorite Lady Scribes! Hope you enjoyed reading the answers as much as I enjoyed did!


  1. OMG, Ava is totally a panther!!! Hee! I shared my answers with the husband aka Hot Builder and he just gave me this look.

    So, I assured him that all of my heroes were modeled after him. He rolled his eyes and said, "No, I want know why you haven't worn that outfit for me."

  2. LOL Marquita you are a blast! I totally think Ava is a panther! And tell your hubby you were saving it for a special occassion, *wink* LOL!!

  3. I love that Ava is a panther. And Marquita, I'm dying to see you in your writing outfit. :)

  4. Round 3: Again, I will attempt to post a comment. I'm nothing if not stubborn.

    I would love to hear our followers' answers to these questions. Post your answers in the comments. :)


  5. LOL! Ava.... Freudian slip? Hahaha... Fun blog, ladies. (And it explains a lot, heehee)

  6. LOL Catherine and Olivia, she's going to be furious at me for exploiting her typo LOL. <3 ya Ava, now don't throw anything at me!

    Samantha I'd love to see some readers answer the questions myself. Come on people be brave!

  7. Love it, Suzie!!

    And Ava is TOTALLY a Panther…she won't be a Cougar until she turns 40. LMAO!

  8. LOL Jerrica! So a panther is like a cougar in training? Sweet!! Ava is totally a panther roflmao! I am so dead btw, just so you all know if my body turns up missing. Ava is going to kill me!!! LOL

  9. *sigh* PANTSER... not panther. I replied to Suzie's questions on my iPhone because my laptop was being difficult (just got a brand new track pad today, btw). I didn't even know it autocorrected to "panther" until this blog hit. Let me just say Steve Jobs must NOT be a pantser or the phone would have known what that meant and wouldn't have autocorrected. Sheesh!

    But now there's so much interest in panthers, maybe I should change what I really am. ;)

  10. Ava, I think being a panther sounds like more fun than being a pantser. Just sayin'.

  11. LOL! We love teasing you, Ava. You're just so adorable to tease and we honestly don't get to do it very often LOL.

    Catherine I totally agree, panther sounds way more fun imho!

    I had a blast with this blog, I love that you all answered my questions. It was fun. Wish some of the commenters would answer a few like what do you read/ write in. I love to know I'm not the only nitwit who can stay in my PJ's all day long LOL. Thanks for stopping in everyone!
