1. Best bookish memory…is it in black and white or colour?

Black and white, Chariots of Fire playing over it, and me fist-bumping the sky in slow motion.


2. When was the last time you cried when writing a tweet?

Never. Tears would rust my facial hull plating.


3. If I say – too many exclamation points then you say –18952405



4. Would you rather live by a haunted castle or a busy shopping mall?

Haunted castle. I’d rather live by an open sewer than a busy shopping mall.


5. There are biscuit crumbs on your keyboard, what will you do?

I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake…BfS GIF


6. Define YA using swagger words?

Teenagers be figuring shiz out. (I feel unclean now. I hope you’re happy.)


7. Is past participle really that dated?

Naaaw, man. We don’t hate on any tenses up in here. (Do you see what you’ve done? DO YOU?)


8. What is The thing not to say to an author?

“Ooh, can I have a free signed copy of your book so I can sell it on ebay?”


9. Street light or moon light to read by?

Street light.


10.(a) what is your life motto in one word?



10(b). Using the answers to questions 3,5 and 9, write a sentence explaining your life motto.

Whatever life throws at you to make you cry “WHUTTTT??!!!!!!!!!!!” you’ve just gotta shake it off and get

to the next street light.


Thank you Kat, I am now singing a Swift song and fist pumping to black and white images of Chariots of Fire!
