Happy Friday once again! Today is the day you all get to meet my muse, Lola! Thanks to Kari Lee Townsend and Sarah Pearson and Donna Cummings my muse now has a name. kari actually started it off with Lolita, then Sue beat Donna to the blog with Lola. And Lola it is! Totally suits her. Come see for yourself.
Me: Welcome to the M&M blog, Lola!
Lola: Thanks. I see Liz posted a fantastic recipe for Cake, but where’s the coffee? Why isn’t there a Starbuck’s on THIS corner.
Me: Hmm…is someone a little cranky today?
Lola: Whatever. How long is this going to take anyway?
Me: Why, you got a hot date I don’t know about?
Lola: You’re funny. We’ve actually got the second half of a book to plot, in case you don’t remember.
Me: Oh yeah…..I’ve been working on index cards, that counts right?
Lola: Sure. But we are supposed to be working on “the board”. But instead you are interviewing me. Priorities, Barbie Jo. Just sayin’.
Me: Wow. Way to be hurtful. It’s all writing related, so relax. Don’t go getting all blocked on me just because of a little interview.
Lola: You block yourself. I’m always here.
Me: Yeah, right, unless you’re out on a “date”. And speaking of which, do you think you’ll ever end up in one of my books? Do you have enough influence to do that?
Lola: You have a couple cozy mysteries where I wouldn’t mind getting cozy with the leading man, if you know what I mean.
Me: Oh, you like those guys do you? Sorry to disappoint you, but they have other “interests” if YOU know what I mean.
Lola: Maybe someday you can find the perfect guy for me to have a romance with.
Me: What are your requirements and I’ll think about it.
Lola: he’s got to be musical, and strong – I like those six-packs and guns! (although a six pack of corona and a glock can totally get them noticed!) A sense of humor is a good thing, but I want someone who can spar with me and not cry like a baby.
Me: you can’t make the hero cry, that’s just not right.
Lola: Then don’t write a wimpy-ass hero! Alpha male or go home!!
Me: Aaand… you should know I have a hard time with those.
Lola: which is precisely why you need to write one. You have to get better at it. Your CP can’t carry you in the alpha department forever you know.
Me: Again with the hurtful?
Lola: Just trying to get you to toughen up.
Me: Riiight. And I think this is going to conclude our interview for today. I don’t need my writing weaknesses splattered all over blogdom. Say bye-bye, Lola.
Lola: Whaat?? We just got started, and besides I used your smartphone to locate a starbucks. Why don’t we pick this up on location? You know you want to. I can easily distract you….
Me: Sorry, Lola, maybe some other time. I will go get the coffee, if you hang out with our friends on M&M and answer any questions they might have for you. And BE NICE!!!
Lola: Hey, sure! Bring it people! Game on, and I’m here all day!!!
