ELLA...THE CONTINUING SAGA

So Ella's mother finally got around to showing Ella my BLOG ENTRY ABOUT HER ...
Take a moment to read Ella and her mom's comments...


The following conversation is third hand (related by my dutiful husband while filling the water tank).
Mother of Ella (hereafter referred to as M.O.E.) made the fatal error of reading outloud to Ella all the comments on my blog about her amazing journey up the mast.
Note* The size of Ella's head was said to increase exponentially with each kudo.

Ella considered everything carefully and had the following suggestion that I might post her telephone number on my blog so she could offer advice, counsel, and tell bloggers all about her other adventures in person...

M.O.E. stated her fear that Ella would now be unable to walk down the dock without hitting bowsprit after bowsprit with her enormous inflated ego.

So now we are offering a NEW BONUS SERVICE!!!
ASK ELLA
You post the questions and I'll run across the dock in my bare feet and get your answers fresh out of the mouth of the babe...
Yanno.
We ALL need a bit of Ella in ourselves don't ya think?

Hi Pat,
New to your blog, a querying writer. Seeing Ella feels familiar ... sometimes when writing, it feels like I'm sitting out on that mast, or walking across the rope. A little daring, but necessary to the craft!

She is adorable.

BTW, Lottery is featured on pages 158-160 in Real Simple magazine.(June 2008) in the section Best Summer Books.

Phillipa Gregory had this to say:

"A hugely feel-good novel that had me laughing out loud at the hero's rise to happiness from absolute despair."

Dear Ask Ella,

What would YOU do if you won the lottery?

Lisa R said...

Funny...I can see you pouting too. I'll keep my eyes peeled for it when I'm out and about.

Dear Ella,

This is a serious (and not silly) question.

I'm a writer, and I've noticed that there aren't any superheroes for girls. There are SpiderMAN and BatMAN and even IronMAN.

I want a to invent a girl superhero and write her inventions. What kinds of strengths should the girl superhero have? What kind of outfit do you think she should wear?

Since I have two sons and no daughters to ask, your answer is very important.

:-)

ChrisEldin said...

ooops. When I said 'inventions' I meant 'adventures.'

But she could also have inventions...

Manic Mom said...

My question for Ella ... OK, I have two of them:

1. Does she pee in the ocean ever and ...

2. Does she know who Miss Snark is?

mlh said...

I suppose my "Ask Ella" question is this.

Aren't you afraid of getting your toes burnt if you become a dragonologist?

ORION said...

Ella Answers: (I walked barefoot to her boat)
If she won the Lottery she would buy a surfboard and two fishing poles- one for her and one for her brother (she's currently saving money for both)

A girl superhero (and aren't we forgetting BUFFY here???!!!) should be able to fly and wear pink.

ORION said...

Manic-
EVERYBODY pees in the ocean!

No she doesn't know who Miss Snark is but she will soon!

ChrisEldin said...

Thanks Ella!
Will keep that in mind!!
:-)

ELLA SAYS to mlh:
Everybody knows you wear special clothes when you're a Dragonologist...
NOTE:
Ella and I had a tea party on the dock next to her boat.
She served blueberries, mango and ORANGE slices...

Holly Kennedy said...

Ella, do you have cats on your boat, and if so do they cause as much trouble as they do on Pat's?

P.S. Congrats on the Real Simple mag spot, Patricia
