Last night I had the great pleasure of my first book club via Facebook chat! and at the end, the host played Inside The Actor’s Studio with me–except it was Inside The Writer’s Studio. The questions were so much fun, I thought I’d share them with you!
What is your favorite word?
That’s a good question. My most recent favorite word is “crenelation,” about the snow castles here in Boston. My first favorite word: “inchitate,” as in “Don’t inchoate me” (I meant irritate. I was 2 years old).
What is your least favorite word?
Congrats. If you want to wholeheartedly congratulate somebody, for goodness’ sake, take the time to spell the damned thing out!
