Tell Me Something Tuesday!

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria Hebert .

This is a fun weekly question she asks other bloggers in the hopes that we will all get to know one another a little better.

This question this week is:
If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would that person be and why?

Gah! I really truly have no idea who I would pick! 
No really. I am stumped.

I have had people ask me this question before and I never know how to answer it. 

There are so many choices. So many people that have walked the Earth that would be wonderful to meet and so many people that are still alive that I would love to meet. How do you pick just one? 

How do you choose?

I could get personal and name a relative that I never got the chance to meet. 

I could get even more personal and name a famous person from Biblical times.

Or I could pick a great literary author or explorer or leader.

What about all the ones out there today? Leaders, artists, authors, scientists, doctors. People who are shaping our lives and future. 

Do you see the dilemma this question causes?

The possibilities are endless. 

So instead I am cheating because I simply can't name one person. I just can't.

But there are so many possibilities I can't even choose two lol! So I am going to make it a little easier on myself and narrow it down to writers only. That way I won't be here all night trying to decide.

I think one person I would love to have met would be Jane Austen.

I just adore all her work and it would be fascinating to have a conversation with her. 

Another great one would be C.S. Lewis. He was a fascinating person and I love how he incorporated his beliefs into his writing and made something absolutely brilliant in the process.

 Edgar Allan Poe would be another fascinating person to meet. He was such a tortured soul.

And who could forget William Shakespeare. His mind must have been something else. All those tragic love stories and twisted family relationships and deaths and well...just all his work. 

As for modern day authors? Well again there are a million (okay maybe not a million) that I would love to meet.

Cambria is one of them! Jennifer Armentrout, Kristan Higgans, Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, Richelle Mead, Rick Riordan, Jeanine Frost, Janet Evanovich, yeah, I really will be here all night if I listed them all. 

So, who would you want to meet and have a conversation with?

Please tell me this answer didn't come easy to you too! :P


  1. This was a really hard question for me this week too. I never know who to pick either. lol.
    I think Jane Austen would be fabulous to meet!! She is just so talented and was writing so long ago.. I would love to hear about what it was like for her to write back in the day. :-)
    William Shakespeare would be intersting too but the way he wrote... I wonder if I would understand anything he was saying!!!! HA HA HA

  2. That is so true Cambria! it would definitely be an interesting conversation with him! :P

  3. Ooooh so many people I'd love to meet. So hard to choose. mmmh.. let's see I'd like to mmet Edgar Allan Poe, really get to know where he got his ideas for those stories..haha

  4. I would also like to meet Jane Austen and Edgar Allan Poe. I love both of their books. I think it would be interesting to see what Poe is really like.

  5. I loved that your response was so all over the map. The classics to the contemporary, these questions are never easy are they!

  6. @Heidi, yeah I guess I am a little strange like that LOL!

  7. I really enjoyed this post. I love seeing picks of authors who have impressed generations of readers, some of whom have influenced society itself. I too would be happy to meet any of these artists. I just imagine some of them as quite eccentric, others as egotistical and others as gentile.

  8. I completely agree Steph! I have always pictures Shakespeare to be arrogant and loud and Poe to be tortured and quiet LOL!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  9. Oh! I remembered watching a movie Becoming Jane and I was in love with Jane Austen then. And I would love to meet Mr Poe too! His poem Annabel Lee has been one of my fav poems to date!
