The Sunday Roast

I Wonder, Is This Lady Singing, Que Sarah Sarah?

This week's interview is with Sarah Curtis who writes
the blog
Que Sarah Sarah.

Thank you for the interview, Sarah

and a warm welcome to you and your followers

Here's the first of the standard questions. Why do you blog?

Blogging is like therapy. Much of what I write never sees the light of day. What I do publish is me "putting myself out there" and eagerly (or fearfully) waiting for feedback. I can't tell you how amazing it is to see the reactions that readers have to my writing. Whether it's some creepy murder fiction I've just written called Second Try or even just a recipe to try, I love it.

What's the story behind your blog name?

Well besides the song Que Sera, Sera which sounds very much like my name and the fact that I love Doris Day and that my mom used to sing that song to me quite a bit...wait, is that enough? What will be, will be. Sounds like a good motto to me.

What is the best thing about being a blogger?

I'll admit that I'm a bit of a wimp. The idea that folks from all over the world can (and do!) read what little old me writes (and while I'm safely out of reach behind my computer) is quite the ego boost. And also that my regulars have become friends, though long distance ones. It's lovely to hop around to different blogs and see what happening in their world.

What key advice would you give to a newbie blogger?

Well I still feel like a newbie blogger, having been doing this for just over two years. The best advice I can give (and hopefully live up to) is to write often. Even if you don't publish, just getting those thoughts and ideas out can open up all sorts of ideas. You never know what's lurking in that brain of yours, perhaps a piece of fiction like this one called Take One .
Oh, and if you're anything like me, keep a notebook and pencil next to your bed. So many times I've been struck with inspiration at 2am and gone to bed delirious with anticipation of a writing fury the next morning only to wake up having forgotten everything. Drat!

What is the most significant blog post you've ever read?

I can't mention just one post, how about one blogger? Woman in a Window. Just about everything Erin writes just amazes me. She has such a way with words.
Ooh, and Cricket and Porcupine. Love it.
And Janine at Sniffles and Smiles has such a great outlook on life. I really can't pick just one...

What is the most significant blog post you've ever written?

The thing I've written that's the most significant to me is Goodbye which I wrote for my Grandmother. She is a big reason that I am who I am and I just love her dearly. Though she's been gone more than ten years, she's still there in my head and in my heart.
Love you, Grandma.

Thank you Sarah - see in Blog Land soon

    To Eddie, you couldn't have picked a nicer individual to interview. I've known Sarah's husband Steven since high school and Sarah to a lesser degree since they married. They are both great people. Thanks for promoting her blog.
