Wanna answer some questions?

30 Oct

Considering my obsession with age lately, I’ve decided to give myself a bit of a writing project for the winter-I have no real endgame with this, aside from perhaps, for once, completing something.


I’m looking to basically wrap the narrative of events of my life around some very cardinal themes-with those being specific to age-growth, death, change, love. I’m looking to survey a number of people, and for those answers to become part of the current narrative, part of the answer to the question of what does age, what do change, what does growing up gift us, or take from us?


I have a list of less than 20 questions that I’m looking for a medium sized varied group to answer. Now, I am looking for largish answers-not just yes or no’s, but answers, from experience.


I’m looking to start sending these out this weekend, so if you’re interested, please, comment or email me at thordora AT gmail.com


And thanks. Like I said, I have no idea where this idea might go, but I’d like to chase it down the rabbit hole.

    If you so choose, I’d be your huckleberry.

    Consider me interested.
    If you want a six and three quarters year old’s responses I can sign one up too.

    I will do it if you can’t find others. Consider me a back-up.

    Now THERE’S a noncommittal response, eh? 🙂

    If you’re cool with me being virtually unintelligible these days, I’m in!

    WANT, even if my age is kinda small and scrawny.

    I’d be happy to contribute. Send the questions!

    Count me in. Since I’m not doing any writing of my own, maybe this will kick start my brain a little.

    Given that I rarely have a short answer to anything, you need not worry about any yes or no answers from me. I’m up for it if you like.

    I’ll give it a go, giving you a late-middle-aged woman’s point of view.

    I’ll answer some, what the heck. Can’t guarantee you’ll like what I have to say, but I’ll be honest.

    I’m in! This sounds intriguing. 🙂

  14. ifbyyes November 1, 2009 at 2:50 pm #

    I’d be delighted to answer any questions.

  15. bromac November 2, 2009 at 12:33 pm #

  16. magpie November 2, 2009 at 5:02 pm #

    I’m yours, if you’d like.

    Hmm. That doesn’t sound right.

    But I’ll try and answer your questions, if you’d like.

    Will send/have sent. Will be coming from time of an age @ gmail FYI.

    And thanks!!!!

    after being an avid reader of your words, it would be a nice way to give something back. I’d be happy to answer questions for you.

    Count me in. You can probably write a book just from my long-winded answers… 🙂

    I’ve been known to talk too much. Just ask my parents. Or my friends. Or my relatives. Or my coworkers. See, I’m at it already. Haha.

    If it’s not too late, I’d like to answer your questions too. If I missed the window, I’d still be very interested in the “results” of your survey.

    I’m probably too late, but if not, I’d be happy to answer your questions. Look forward to reading about the results, anyway.
