A. So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth
A. Yikes, I feel like I'm back in middle school playing a game of truth or dare at a sleepover party. I guess I'll say my lack of ability to scrub and wax my kitchen floor unless my mother or mother-in-law are actually in the car on the way over to my house for a visit.
A. Probably my husband. He's pretty great.
A. Hmm. . . I don't have too many regrets. But I do wish I could go back and tell my younger self to write more. I didn't start writing seriously until college, and it would have been great to have had more years of developing my voice to build on.
A. I guess that depends whether we're talking about in writing or in real life. In writing, my copy editor pointed out to me--very rightly--that I modify way too many verbs with "slightly" or "briefly." Then in real life, I just recently overheard my 2 year old talking to her baby doll and saying in a very patient voice, "Oh, babydoll, why did you do that?" And I thought, Goodness, I have no idea where she could have picked that up!
