Nova Ren Suma
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What if?

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I say "awesome" far too much. The world cannot possibly be this awesome. I write "like" all the time and like to say it, like, constantly, and I bet it's really annoying. When I write, I tend to start sentences with the word "but," almost as if I'm arguing with myself. But then I try to edit them out.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Impossibility.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. I'd move to Paris in a heartbeat if that's what you're asking.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Having all the time in the world.
