Doing the Blog Hop!

It's finally Friday and I'm trying something new.  I'm exploring the blogosphere through Parajunkee's Follow my Book Blog Friday.

Parajunkee's Follow my Book Blog Friday features Carmel @ Rabid Reads today.  The question of the week is:

"What did you study in college, or are currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different?"

My answer:  I majored in English in college, which helped me tremendously with my writing.  But my current 9 to 5 is very different:  I work in the independent film industry (pre-production, production and post-production).  The two aren't totally unrelated, however, because studying English and creative writing made me a better script editor and I made some interesting contacts in the playwriting class and the drama department in which I took it.


  1. Hello my dear,

    I recently finished a Biological Sciences Degree. Now I am working on a degree in History, Humanities, and Religious studies. I think I might never stop, Yes, the Mad Scientist thinks that she will be a lifer student. LOL!

    I'm also the creater of Morbid Romantica Challenge 2011 which I'm trying to get off the ground. It should be a very fun challenge. AND it wont seem like homework. *smirk*

    Today was the start of a Hardcover giveaway for Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness @ Ridley's Giveaway

  2. Hmm . . . a Biological Sciences degree. I'm thinking some of the research I did for Darkness Dawns would have gone far more quickly if I had been able to pick your brain. :-)

    The Morbid Romantica Challenge 2011 sounds intriguing. I'll have to see if I can't squeeze in more reading time so I can participate.

    Thanks for dropping by!

  3. Hey Dianne! Really awesome to meet you. I'm looking forward to reading your posts.

    Congrats on getting your book published! I have to say, Darkness Dawns sounds like a very tempting read;-) Can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

    Again, congrats and Happy Hop!

  4. Hey! Hopping by from the blog hop. New follower. Congrats on getting published, by the way. I love the title; sounds totally intriguing. I'm still in high school, so I can't really answer this week's question.
    Happy reading! -Caroline, Words & Whispers

  5. Thanks, Carissa and Caroline! I enjoyed visiting your blogs!
