1. What is your favorite type of artistic expression and why? (painting, sculpture, instrumental music, singing, acting, dancing, writing, etc.)
Either singing or writing - singing honestly makes me feel better, when I feel I am doing it well, and writing is one of my constant forms of expression.

2. What type of artistic expression do you wish you COULD do that you can't currently?
Draw - I can't draw a straight line with a ruler. I am endlessly jealous of people who can draw.

3. If you could be a type of artistic expression (painting, song, play) what would you be and why?
I'd be a story that they always remember, always.

4. What 3 pieces of art/book/movie/play/song have affected you most in your life, and why?
Hmmmm....."Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran -- first song to move me to tears. _The Vampire Lestat_ by Ann Rice -- yes, I know she is basically a terrible writer, but this book was my BIBLE when I was a teenager. "I'd been born reckless, the angry one, the dreamer..." I still have a paperback copy, held together with rubberbands, highlighted, with notes in the margins. It was probably also the first book that made me want to analyze it, both in terms of how it affected my own life and in terms of how it compared to others in the genre. "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe -- first poem I ever memorized; I can still recite most of it from memory, and IU credit it with starting me down the path of a lifelong interest in the macabre.

5. and, on a completely different note, What character from classical literature (including plays) do you most relate to and why?
Hmmm again....there are many, really. I always found myself relating to Frodo Baggins and I hope that I have shown one-tenth of his courage in the face of adversity. Catherine Earnshaw -- her tempermental nature. Beatrice from "Much Ado About Nothing" - her wit and her sarcasm.
