This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Graduating college in only four years! I switched majors three times (before I discovered writing, I didn’t have much stick-to-it-ive-ness at anything) and had to take a very heavy load my last semester. I could’ve coasted like most seniors, but I really wanted to get an Honors degree instead of just a basic English degree. I had to write nineteen papers plus a thesis! But I did it somehow, and the courses I took that last semester blew my mind wide open, so I’m really glad I took the rough road for once in my life.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I had to consult my husband on this one, and he said it’s that I don’t take myself too seriously.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. Awesome. Seriously. I also use parentheses way too much (or maybe just enough).
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Does anyone not answer "pizza"?
