"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

If I Were...

This post is part of Patty Wysong's
   A to Z meme. This week's letter is "I."
A to Z blog hop at Patterings.


I had a hard time coming up with a topic for "I" (you can ask Peejers). But then, I had a vague memory of a post I did a while back that was pretty fun that might fit. So I went digging - and I was right.

But I wasn't just going to recycle the post. Oh, no...I copied all the statements, but deleted my answers - then waited a day and filled them in again. No peeking at my old post allowed. I'm curious how many will be the same...

Guess I'll check - when I'm done! (and you, of course, can check if and whenever you want)

  1. I saw the title and thought this was going to be about "Fiddler on the Roof." If I were a rich man... great, now I'll be humming that all day. Thanks Joanne!

    1. Hehe, Tom - love that song - and the entire musical! Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Great post, Joanne. I agree on the library. As for an animal, I'd be a dragonfly -- I love the oxymoronic (is that a word?) name and the combination of lovely, delicate, filmy wings and a determined, fearless face.

    1. That dragonfly IS a great, complex, combo, isn't it? (and yes, oxymoronic is a word, though it certainly sounds like something someone would make up, doesn't it?)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I had the same problem with I, only you came up with something creative. Very out of the box. Time of day I'd be a sunset, me and mornings don't mix well.

    1. Sunset would probably be my second choice, J'nell. Thanks for coming by - and I'm sure yours is FINE :) Will be over in a bit :)

  4. I'm also singing about a rich man....
    You might check your sea animal answer :)
    These must have been time consuming to think up- did you need to include the reasoning?

    1. Hehe - thanks for the sea animal note (ooops! LOL). And no reasoning required. THAT could be ugly!! LOL

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This was great! Hmmm...

    If I were a day I'd be Friday.
    If I were a sweet I'd be chocolate.
    If I were a fruit I'd be bananas...LOL!

    Loved this!

    1. The first time I did this, my food was ice cream :) Glad you enjoyed the post - it was SO fun to do!

  9. How fun, I think I might have done this one. I need to check. Maybe my answers have changed...who knows I eat strawberries now and used to hate them, maybe I like Mondays now...no, that isn't happening.
    Blessings,
    Diana
