So, then I began to think (don’t get scared because of that!!). I thought to myself, I could pretend to interview ANY author and how would you know if I made up the answers myself, or plagiarized another interviewer?
Thus, Famous Friday has emerged, like a babe from the womb. I am going to pick a famous author (or celeb) and I will interview them. I will ask them my own questions, but I will take REAL ANSWERS (to who knows what) that they have said in interviews and I will insert it in as their answer to my questions.
So ***** This is fun. Not real. Yes, real quotes, but not to the original questions, or maybe they are…? *****
That being said, today we are going to spending a little time chatting with Oprah!! Wha? Yup, that’s right!! Author of multiple books and magazines, Oprah is one of the leading voices in today’s culture.
That actually explains a lot. Anyway, let’s get started…shall we?
Charity – Oprah! So nice of you to join us!! Some of my readers are going to think they died and went to heaven!!!
Oprah – My idea of Heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with!!
Charity – Oh! My goodness. I was thinking more about hanging out with Jesus! Won’t that be amazing??
Oprah – Well, the whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you are intended to be.
Charity – I guess we might agree to disagree on that. But, anyway, how have you been? How’s OWN working out?
Oprah – I am a woman in progress. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.
As far as my network? Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people that never tumble are those that never mount the high wire. This is your moment. OWN it.
Charity – huh? *awkward silence*
Oh. I see what you did there. That was clever.
Ok, so…let’s talk about your book, What I Know For Sure. Can you tell us anything about it?
Oprah – Like Dr. King I have a dream of my own, too, that the powerful message of this little book would be engraved on every human heart and will never be forgotten again. That you who read this book will feel as I do that these 120 pages … should be required reading for all humanity
Charity – That good, huh??
Oprah – The more you praise and celebrate your life, there more there is in life to celebrate! When I look into the future, it’s so bright it burns my eyes!!
Charity – I don’t mean to be…questioning you, but you do come across a little “I’m better than you”. Does that bother you at all?
Oprah – I still have my feet on the ground! I just wear better shoes!!
Charity – huh. Kinda like that.
Well, what advice would you give to someone just starting out in the biz?
Oprah – I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I’ve become! So, go ahead! Fall down! The world looks different from the ground.
Charity – There are so many pictures of you out there. Which one is your personal favorite?
Charity – A lion! Fancy!! Something looks a little fake. I can’t quite put my finger on it…
Charity – Hmm. Thanks so much for your time. I know you are super busy. Good luck with your different endeavors.
Oprah – Where there is struggle, there is strength.
Charity – Thank you for that.
