Twitter Spotlight: Sarah Moon

If I could sum up Sarah in just one word, it would be bookish. Her love for reading and writing drives her career and her passion projects including Clear Eyes, Full Shelves.

But there’s more to native Oregonian Sarah. For starters: Her love of her husband, Josh, and their two dogs. Ukuleles. Teaching. Friday Night Lights.

Get to know Sarah a bit here.

What’s new with you, @aswinn?

I reached out to lovely Allison Winn Scotch about an update to her Twitter Spotlight from September 19, 2012. She kindly obliged.

Here are a few things that have happened since the last time I stopped by:

1) Oh, ain’t no thang, but I have a new book out called THE THEORY OF OPPOSITES, and it just so happens that Jennifer Garner has optioned the rights to make the movie. Like I said, just, you know, your everyday, run-of-the-mill news.

I loathe this book

I loathe this book and yet I forced myself to finish. Do you do that too?

After I finally finished the book (and it felt like ages), I googled the title and the author to see what other people thought. I quickly got the sense that people who liked it didn’t look much past the apparently still-titillating notion of a relationship between two women. I say this because few people commented on the god-awful writing, and the huge holes in both plot and character.

Twitter Spotlight: Gaby Dunn

It was Thought Catalog that made me follow writer Gaby Dunn. I didn’t realize at the time that she has been a TC editor versus just a contributor. And so much more.

I could link you to the first post of hers that I read or I could link you to any number of equally fun/poignant/great articles and posts and a series called 100 Interviews. The end result will be the same, I think: you will also follow her on Twitter.

Twitter Spotlight: Emily Brandwin

Here’s a first: a former spy in the Twitter Spotlight! Emily Brandwin who also goes by @CIASpyGirl on Twitter has also dabbled in stand up comedy as well as public relations.

Versatile? Yes.

When Emily and I met face to face for lunch in LA a few weeks ago, I tried not to obsess over her past spy work, but it was hard (at first). Fortunately she’s used to people like me acting like goofballs and patient about it. We’re still buddies.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@CIASpyGirl: My most favorite qualities in a love interest are sense of humor and talent. “Funny” and “talent” are a killer combo. I also look for generosity of spirit, intelligence, smarts (street smarts) compassion, beautiful eyes, wisdom and an ability to overlook a new purse purchase.

Your chief characteristic (one word)

@CIASpyGirl: Grateful.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@CIASpyGirl: Sense of humor! My best friend @Eminmotion is hilarious. Continue reading
