I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers March Blog Challenge. If you would like more information about this challenge click here.
Several years ago I learned about the 36 questions to become closer to someone. In the New York Times, the article was titled The 36 Questions that Lead to Love. I am always fascinated by questions. As an introvert, I learned to have a question ready when attending a social event in case the conversation lulled. I prefer to have deeper conversations as opposed to surface level ones.
As part of the challenge this year, I will be answering some of the questions and then you have the opportunity to journal about the question, ask a person you want to be closer to, or answer in the comments.
I have been asked this question many times. I read a book within the last couple of years about a dinner party of all these connected characters. You cannot help but think about who you wanted to be at your table. It is a recommended read from me!
I often think I would love to have one last dinner with my Oma who died in 2000. It is hard to believe that on April 1 it will be 20 years that she is gone. I would want her to cook the dinner though too! I miss her Sunday dinner of roast, gravy, boiled potatoes, red cabbage, and “green stuff”. Green stuff was whatever green veggies made it on the table that week: Brussels sprout, asparagus, beans, etc.
I would like to have dinner with Neil Gaiman and Kelly Link as well. They are both authors I admire. Neil writes in a little cottage. Kelly has a small group she gets together with every week. I would love to hear more about both of these practices. I would love to hear about their processes. Kelly just opened a bookstore too. Lots of reading and writing conversation for sure during that dinner!
Who would you like to have dinner with?
