Ten Things You Might Not Know About Me

As part of getting the Kreativ Blogger and the Most Inspiring Blogger awards, I was asked to post ten things people don’t know about me.

Now, some of you might know some of this, so I guess it’s more of a “what most people don’t know about me” post. I’m just no good at keeping secrets.

Ten Facts about the Nacent Novelist
1. I used to be a violin teacher, and I loved it.
2. I used to play in a punk rock band.
3. I spent the fall of 2007 driving across America by myself.
4. I know the basics of trigger point acupuncture, and have sat needles on myself.
5. I played violin for a black metal band.
6. I hate when people use en-dashes instead of em-dashes. (It’s lonely being a nitpicker.)
7. I’m afraid of short heights. When I know that if I fall, I’ll hurt but survive, I’m terrified. When I’m so far up that falling would mean certain death, I’m okay with it.
8. I served as a member of Holmestrand city council for two years.
9. I used to write poetry, and even published a poem in a student paper.
10.I can’t jump. Remember the movie “White Men Can’t Jump”? I’m proof of that.



  1. You are fascinating! Also will you play violin in my band if we actually get good?? šŸ˜‰

    • Good to know I’m not the only one! šŸ™‚

      And I wouldn’t be in too much awe. It’s fairly straightforward.

      • Sticking needles into yourself is wow. I can’t watch and I flinch if I watch. I’ve had acupuncture for years and I couldn’t do it. šŸ™‚

    • Thanks! As a friend of mine said though: all these adventures are pretty old. I need to go out and make some new ones.

      I’m sure there’s plenty of interesting stuff people don’t know about you either. Time to share?
