A little while ago, Michael D’Agostino, of A Life Examined, brought up the idea of a new blog hop called Question of the Month. He thinks blog readers would like to know a little more about us, the bloggers. So we’re all gathering to show you guys who we are by taking part in the Question of the Month blog hop. On the first Monday of each month, we answer the question that gets posted here.
This month’s question is: “What’s your favorite thing that begins with C?”
Chocolate is probably my favorite thing that begins with ‘c’, but before I talk about why, I’d like to mention a few other C’s.
First, C is for challenge, as in the A – Z Challenge that many in the blogosphere are participating in this month. I am not participating, but I am following along. One day I’ll take on the challenge but not this time around. I am, however, enjoying many of the themed posts so far.
Second, C is for character. As a writer and reader of books, I appreciate good characters. Characters that feel real and make you love or hate them just can’t be beat. There are many aspects of fiction that make it my preferred overall genre, but I like the idea of becoming attached to a made up person, someone I almost wish was real.
Third, C is for convention. It’s convention season for me and I’m getting excited. I’ve already listed the countdown for RavenCon (see side panel) and will follow up shortly with a countdown for my local Tidewater Comicon. The geek in my can barely contain my excitement.
And before I get into my enjoyment of chocolate, I’d just like to mention one thing that begins with ‘c’ that drives me crazy. The ever so small yet daunting comma.
Finally, chocolate is my favorite thing that begins with ‘c’ because:
-it tastes great whether sweet, bitter, or spicy.
-it can be comforting and soothing.
-when in dark form it can be a healthier alternative to other sweets.
-I like the way it melts and can be molded.
-it goes well with many other flavors…
Seriously, I could go on, but I won’t. What’s your favorite thing that begins with ‘C’?
Please visit the other participants in this hop and even join in if you’d like.
