Ring Around the Rose
Yesterday, the other Five Enchanted Roses authors and I began a series of posts called Ring Around the Rose in celebration of the upcoming release of our collection of stories. We will be taking turns tagging one another and hopping blog to blog to answer a series of unique questions about ourselves and our stories. Yesterday, Kaycee launched the event on her blog. Be sure to backtrack to her blog to catch the beginning of this exciting series and a few other details about the event.
This week, the question is: If you could live in a Fantasy world, which one would you choose?
This question was totally my idea...and I have had the worst time EVER picking just one fantasy world. How do you pick just one? I want to visit them all! Every last one of them. So I've been stewing for a couple of weeks trying to decide which fantasy world I could actually LIVE in--as in, SURVIVE in. The truth is, there are some pretty scary story worlds out there with some terrible villains. Middle-Earth was at the top of the list, because there would be so many amazing things to see and people to meet--I would really like to go to Rohan and get to meet Eomer and the Rohirrim and learn how to wield a sword and become a shieldmaiden. But, honestly, I would make a terrible shieldmaiden. I don't like to hurt things, except for maybe bugs, and I'm not all that fond of exercise, and I've never really done much horse riding. Okay, I've only ever been on a horse once or twice. It was probably a pony, too.
No, I finally decided on Star Wars. I've seen all the movies a billion times and read all of the Young Jedi Knight books when I was a kid--I still have them. And (cough cough) still read them.
Just imagine it? Hundreds of worlds to visit from the comforts of your own Millennium Falcon--no camping out without proper bathrooms--and yet you'd still get to meet thousands of cool alien races and maybe, if you're lucky, have a connection to the Force and get to throw bad guys around with your awesome mind powers. Maybe you could even have your own Ewok. I would love to have an Ewok. Or a Wookie. I could totally do a Wookie, especially if it came with a tall, dark and rakishly handsome smuggler. My husband would fit that role quite nicely. Just imagine all the gadgets and space ships and the Universe at your fingertips...
Yup, this is definitely the world for me.
