Enter The DuTchess!

MarionDriessen2One of the lovely people I’ve met in cyberspace is Marion Driessen, my “sister” from The Netherlands. I tagged Marion with an award, but she doesn’t do awards because she considers us all equally award-worthy. See why I love her?

Nevertheless, since she IS my sister, she kindly answered the questions attached to the award, and here are her answers:

How long have you been blogging?
For over four years.
Why did you choose the topic(s) for your blog?
I didn’t! Beauty and joy is in everything, you just have to know how to look for it. And that I want to share.
How do people find your blog?
People can stumble over my blogs on several social media, but mainly they follow posts through WordPress. (Figments of a DuTchess)
Do you feel comfortable promoting/advertising your own stuff?
My photos, poems and stories are there for anyone who wants to read and see them. So yes 🙂
What’s your happiest earliest childhood memory?
My memory is a mess, a black hole, but the love for my family shines throughout my youth. Holidays are more clear than other memories.
If you could have any critter, real or imaginary, as a pet, what would it be?
A cat. Are there others? 😉 Hehehe, just kidding. I’d love to have dogs too, and a horse. And chickens.
What would you name it?
My cat is called Bandit.
Why would a woodchuck chuck wood?
What else could you do with those teeth?

Vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore?
Omnivore, still dreaming about her vegetarian years. Those darned men demand meat at my house!
What are you reading (not these questions, silly! what book?)?
The Harp of Winds, by Maggie Furey. But after this series, it’s going to be Sage!*
What is your superpower?
Sensing humor in all situations. Except while visiting dentists. Those are immune to humor.
There you have them.

*SEE why I love her??

Here are all her websites, some in English and some in Dutch:

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a character who is immune to humor. Make him or her emotionally appealing.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
