  1. Interesting questions. By starting reading, do you mean read anything or read books/literature? I was four or five when I learned to read and started using some handmade large print books my mother had created.

  2. Before computers, Smartphones and so on what were you using when writing your stories and creating your literature? A good old-fashioned college-ruled notebook and a pen. I loved fountain pens. There is really nothing like the sound and feel of a fountain pen tip scratching on the paper. My grandmother wrote journals during her entire married life. I have them. They outlined her day – money spent and basically everything she did during the day. I may start a blog series about those journals.

    What type of games do you enjoying playing online? Really, none.

    What age were you when you first started reading and what were you reading at that age? I was probably pre-kindergarten and reading the usual stuff. I progressed pretty quickly to the Encyclopedia and Dictionary. My mom used to take us to the Library regularly – those trips were heaven!

    How do you prevent boredom entering into your life and are you able to list 6 effective ways in which others could introduce to stop it from entering theirs? 1. Writing 2. Reading 3. Talking to friends and family 4. Listening to music 5. Social Media (no haters) 6. Watching Netflix, Amazon Prime, and sometimes Television 7. Going for long car rides 8. Doing the naughty thing. Yeah, I know that’s more than six, but I was on a roll.

    Thanks for the questions, Rory – by the way, that’s two question sets in one week that I answered. I think a participation medal or something should be due… LOL

  3. Before the techie stuff everything went into my head and stayed there. Never wrote it down. Before PCs I loved playing the map based strategy games. Anything from WW2 battles to Lord of the Rings. So miss them.

  4. I’ve written journals since I was 9 or 10. I don’t really DO fiction. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I started reading Hardy Boys & Nancy Drew books around age 7 or 8. I learned to read around age 4 or 5, simple stuff… “See Spot run. Jane has a red ball.” That kinda stuff.

    Online games I do puzzle type games. Not very often… no time.

    Boredom?? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Get a Ben, you’ll never be bored.

  5. 1. Before computers and smartphones, I used to write poems in spiral notebooks.
    2. I play old school board games like Online Battleship. I also Play Monopoly on my phone.
    3. I remember my mother reading me Dr. Seuss books, and eventually I began to read them myself. My mother was a voracious reader who used to go to the library with a laundry basket to carry all her books, and she would fill that thing up every week. She also made up stories and told us stories of her childhood. So my reading started with my mother and at the library at an early age
    4. Since I became a book blogger, I don’t really have time for boredom. I find I have committed my time at least two weeks ahead most of the time to reading and writing reviews. I also work full time and have three grandchildren. My husband and I binge Netflix or Hulu in the evenings. I also used to travel before COVID, and hope to get back to it again soon.
