You have just won the fantasy dinner date lottery with a famous writer.
If you could have dinner with a famous writer – either from the past or the present -- who would that person be? And imagine you could engage in any topic of conversation you wished…what topic would be foremost in your mind? Keep in mind that this individual will be very open and candid with you, and there will be no language barriers.
My answer would be William Shakespeare. The first question would be: “What inspirations and life experiences enabled you to attain such a remarkable understanding of human nature? For humor, I might add, “Did you ever experience writer’s block?” :-)
Genna.....I love fantasies.....I'm having a tough time deciding between 2 writers.....One very famous....and one who is well on his way to Fame!
Dr. Wayne Dyer is someone I would really love to talk to for HOURS. He has written some books that I think at the time I read them....he may have saved my life (so to speak) I did meet him and get his autograph and exchange a few comments...but that's it.
Then there's my special "bro"...our very own "William Holland." Getting to know bill here for the past 3 years, I can only imagine the incredibly great time and unending conversation we could have......Of course BEV would be there too.....and they are an interesting twosome! I know I'd have to be well-rested, because the laughter would be insane! There would be a RULE too. Bill absolutely would not be allowed to make dinner!
This was a fun question to answer.!
I like your second choice. Let's all just show up at Bill's house.
Great choices, Paula, and, yes, let's just all show up at Bill's. What a hoot! : )
Dinner with Bill and Bev would be so much fun…and he is on his way to fame; I am convinced of this. :-)
My dinner date would be William B. Yeats. Our main topic of conversation would, of course, be legends and fairy tales of Ireland. I would ask Mr. Yeats to read Celtic Twilight to me. I have read the book myself, but would love to hear his voice as he reads it while we sit in comfy chairs after dinner by a stone fireplace in an Irish cottage.
What a fun and interesting question, Genna
ooooooo, Phyllis....your date sounds very Romantic....
Love, love, love your choice, Phyllis, so cool, as are your reasons and the scenario you have created. Woo hoo
Oh, Phyllis! An intense, brilliant and handsome man. That would indeed be a fascinating evening.
That sounds amazing. Heck, if I could have any Irishman chat with me next to stone fireplace in an Irish cottage, I'd be stoked! I seriously love hearing them talk.
Great question, almost impossible to answer but I'll go with the poet Sylvia Plath, that bright, lovely, dark, manic, sweet, tragic woman. The conversation would be pure poetry and the first question would be : " Sylvia, could I please take you out for a walk through the woods, down to the river, and up the hill, perhaps to a pub, then come back and sit down and write a poem each. That's after we've gobbled down the fish and chips (we're in England remember!) but before we drink too much Theakston's Old Peculiar?"
Wow, love your answer and your reasons. So true, great question but almost too hard to answer.
It’s a difficult question. I keep thinking, “Only one?” How can I pick only one? Sylvia Plath has always been one of my favorite poets. I also love your answer.
Wow! I can think of so many and each for a different reason. To choose one, I'd pick the apostle Luke. Although I believe all of the New Testament writers told things exactly as they saw them, I think Luke (more than the others) probably approached things more logically than emotionally. It would be interesting to learn more of the details about the time he spent with Jesus.
