What, When, Where, Why, How with Shannon Robinson

What is one grammar mistake you consistently make? Putting a comma in place when there should be a semi-colon instead, or vice versa. I've caught myself doing that many times - still have to drag along my old grammar books from high school to reference. Those are certainly a treasure trove to hold onto.

Where did you last shop? Walmart - I am a huge Walmart fan. Groceries, electronics, books, etc. etc. I can get at Walmart. And anyone who shops at Walmart knows what a huge inspiration going there can be for a writer - honestly! I'm a people watcher and you can find every type or personality of people at Walmart!

When do you enjoy chocolate? Well...to be honest...all the time! LOL!! Seriously, if you put a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in front of my face, I'm going to eat it. Those are definitely my favorite tantalizing chocolate morsels, but pretty much any chocolate tempatation will do. I particularly crave chocolate during my day job - when I'm stressed to the max - or around midday, about 3pm or so. A little snack before dinner - even though I should be snacking on cucumbers or carrots or something...hmmm....that may be why I can't shake these 20 pounds...

Why is cotton candy sweet? Other than the immense amounts of sugar involved, I truly feel that cotton candy is so sweet because it represents a sweet time period of our lives. What adult didn't indulge in cotton candy at the county fair as a child? As children, we relish the taste of cotton candy, the sweet innocence of devouring that delectable treat on a hot summer day. As adults we remember that time and taste the sweetness of cotton candy once more. chanel handbags

How do you solve a Rubik's cube? This is so unoriginal but I did this to impress my son one time (though he wasn't too happy when he found out I'd tricked him!) Take off all the stickers and rearrange them. That's how you solve the Rubik's cube - Shannon Robinson style.

Thanks ladies! Like I said, my candy fetish must be why I can't shake the 20 pounds I've packed on since high school. LOL!
Thanks for reading!

Hi Shannon,
Just saw your post on the CHRW loop. Are we twins? Though I must admit I was never clever enough to think of the Rubik's cube trick. As for the commas, my dh says that he can tell if I've been drinking a little because I tend to be very generous in my comma usage. I'm drinking tea right now, though . . . .

Oh, incidentally, I NEVER pass up the chance to get cotton candy. In fact, I had some this weekend at the Mardi Gras parade.

LOL!!! Gotta love that rum tea! Nothing wrong with that - I'd say it adds a little spike to the imagination and we writers certainly need our imaginations at full speed. Thanks for commenting!!
