i've been thinking of doing this one for some time now, and since my muse seems quite absent when it comes to real writing, today seemed as good a day as any (even if this isn't one of my favorite designs). here i present you with, my 100 things (which i hope can include the obvious).

» i was born the year camelot for the u.s. died

» have been twice married, 3 times engaged

» went back to college after a 10 year break

» then graduated with a 3.541 gpa - and the degree has finally posted

» didn't find out i was adhd until i became anemic

» made myself anemic pursuing my a.a. in early childhood studies (very dumb move)

» my memory has a 5 minute life span, sometimes less

» i started writing when i was about 10

» quit writing seriously when i was about 15 and someone told me i didn't have a chance of getting published because everyone was trying to write the great american novel

» started writing seriously again about 2 or 3 years ago and it feels like i should have been here all along

» dreaming in ink is my second writer's group - the first, the writers circle, folded in less than a year (dreaming is a year in 3 months)

» i think in video

» music is my inspiration and my world i'm creating for my writing has a sound track

» there's a lot of creed in that soundtrack

» but i like music across the board from enya and beethoven to metallica, nine inch nails, and white zombie

» i am not much of a tv or movie person - far too picky for my own good

» but hubby is turning me into a tv addict anyway: crossing jordan, 24, enterprise, american dreams, even law & order

» have wanted to see steve miller band in concert and the play cats for years but got lingerie instead

» the music i don't like includes 99.9% of rap and country and all opera

» used to like the bay city rollers and still wants their next to last album (hey, bcr and bowie once did the exact same song with the exact same tune)

» i have always been a night owl

» can't sleep longer than 5 or 6 hours without waking up with a severe backache

» get cold hands and feet easily

» eat ice but can't stand water to drink

» have a sweet tooth extraordinaire

» need to lose at 100 pounds

» hate exercise

» love a good book

» play advanced dungeons & dragons 2nd ed, shadowrun 2nd ed, and vampire

» gm ad&d and shadowrun

» have a collection of gaming dice that includes 81 standard 6-sided dice in 10 different colors and 3 different sizes; 7 mismatched 8-sided dice; 33 red and black 10-sided dice; 14 sets of dice (each with at least 1 4-sided, 1 6-sided, 1 8-sided, 2 10-sided, 1 12-sided, and 1 20-sided die), which includes 6 set of mini dice; and 1 30-sided die

» yes, i counted them; no, you can't have any ;)

» i collect coffee mugs, but don't drink coffee

» have 6 dragon statuettes on my desk shelves (yes, i collect them too)

» and an old a&w mug full of bookmarks (yes, i collect those too)

» have a ton of stuffed unicorns and bears, a raccoon, a bunny, a couple of tigers, and a garfield - all of which just sorta happened without actively collecting them

» prefer fantasy for my reading, but will try just about anything bookwise

» seem to have collected more of my textbooks than i will ever open again

» own about 200 cd's - my husband probably owns another 200

» need more room in my house and more books shelves against the walls

» i like dangly earrings

» don't like big rings or necklaces (the necklaces always make me feel like i'm choking)

» am claustrophobic

» prefer loose clothing

» stopped wearing heals awhile ago

» ditto for make up - although that is subject to change of circumstance and finance

» love christmas

» hate the commercialism

» ditto for valentine's day

» and i don't celebrate too many other holidays except our anniversary (which falls on new year's eve) and the kids' birthdays when we can

» i love my son just the way he is, autism and all

» am about to have my first poem published online, and it's about my son - and i think it's very fitting that dreaming is my first publisher and the poem for my son is my first published piece

» once dreamed of being a singer

» and a tv/movie star

» and decided i didn't want to deal with the "casting couch"

» i have always loved to dance

» and am sad that i can't do it much any more - too big with too many physical issues (slow dancing still works though)

» i used to get through a novel in 2 days or less

» now it takes me 3 or more

» i am allergic to mold and house dust

» and used to get allergy shots

» but quit when my arms bruised and hurt for 3 days afterwards

» i am severely allergic to needles (getting blood drawn is a real trick, babe!)

» always wanted one more baby

» but got fixed because my poor body couldn't take any more

» and am okay with that

» i sleep in the nude, even in winter

» but am married to a living heater so stay warm regardless

» was a virgin when i got married (the first time, silly)

» i was once a bitter, hateful, angry, manipulative person (a million years it, at least it seems like it)

» and used to be suicidal

» and i credit god with the changes, even though i don't talk about my faith much (i have my reasons)

» but still have no regrets

» my favorite colors are teal and burgundy, my least favorite colors are yellow and orange

» i used to be involved with the site fights: i've been a fighter, fairy (& lady), spirit coordinator, team assistant, and team leader (i loved it but am glad i'm no longer involved, thank you very much)

» my names for the above were: domynoe-dragon, d'cat fairy (and lady d'cat), d'mystical, d'scribe, and lothlindorie (thank god i'm just domynoe now!)

» jobs i've held: paper girl, fast food, k-mart "associate," interior designer, tutor, web designer

» i dream of being a paid, published author and teaching at the university level

» i write primarily fantasy

» but want to try my hand at magical realism, women's lit, and a few other things, maybe even eroticism
