I love meeting new people; I think everyone has a story to tell. We should all listen sometimes.
Pickup lines are a major turn-off, they don't work on me and I tune them out. It's better to just be honest.
I hope that in 5 years from now I'll be working and doing what makes me happy. Whatever that may be.
I think in most sports sometimes you need a little luck for the ball or calls to roll your way.
I'm still reading some scripts and I model as well, so I'm still doing that. But I don't want to do like just anything so we're being really selective about the stuff I'll do.
Models are what they are... people who model clothing, that's all.
My greatest achievement so far is that I've been able to continue with my normal life. I love what I do, but more so, I'm glad to have people who care about me close by.
The editing process is a necessary evil. I can write until the cows come home but it is all garbage until it gets edited.
My experiences always influence my writing, but usually only on an emotional level. I have experienced death of a family member and it's easy to dredge up those feelings and get them on the page.
Dialogue saves me. I love writing the conversations between my paper people. For some reason, that is the easiest thing for me. It's like I am a transcriptionist for the voices in my head. I can hear them talking (mentally) and have a gift for getting it on the page.
Setting can be something that is a major player in a scene, something that makes the mood leap from the page. But if an author doesn't handle it right, it falls flat or seems overdone. It is a challenge getting it "just right".
For me, setting and description is a challenge. I always want to get that part just right, and sometimes the words won't work.
I think I have always wanted to tell stories. My mother was the real catalyst. I kept talking about it and so she pulled out a story I wrote (and illustrated) back in elementary school. She used that as proof that I should be writing and had been doing so unconsciously for years.
Everyone on my team is different in terms of how long before a workout they prefer to eat. I like to eat my big meal 4.5-5 hours before I play. I usually eat a carb either rice or pasta with tofu or chicken. Around 2 hours before I play to like to eat greek yogurt with a banana.
I do love wearing heels but my feet can't be in them all day long. I want to have fun and dance so I need to be comfortable.
The best part of being a pro is being able to travel around the world. I have met so many incredible people and experienced different cultures all through sport.
There are days when I don't want to go to the gym or find myself not super motivated upon arriving. I would visualize myself playing at the Olympics.
A good edit process turns rocks into diamonds, and every author should love that part as much as the creative phase. I do love it. It's a different side to writing. It's like the fine-tuning.
