A. Laugh at yourself. Often.
A. I want to be one of those freaky talented people who can pick up any instrument and play it. Can you tell I’m obsessed with this? Last year, I bought a guitar and was very disappointed when I couldn’t instantly play it.
A. Sleeping. Oh man, I love my bed and curling up in it for hours and hours, all toasty warm and drowsy and daydreaming about my next book.
A. That I never took music lessons. I’m pretty sure I’d be a virtuoso piano or violin player, despite my lack of musicality.
A. Kindness, a sense of humor, and the ability to be still and listen.
