It’s my party and I’ll meme if I want to

To celebrate the anniversary of my twenty-ninth birthday, I give you nine glimpses inside the writer life—in meme.

Does that explain a few things about someone you know? Can you relate to any of the above? Maybe you’re a storyteller in the making!


Beth Olsson, in a pen cap, is all about Jesus, her Viking, and their two adorable babies. If you know what it means when she says her childhood heroes were Laura Ingalls Wilder, Anne of Green Gables, and Jo March, then you get it! All kidding aside, they’re still her heroes. Beth started creating stories as early as she can remember, staying awake well after bedtime dreaming up daring characters and precarious situations. As a writer of contemporary romance, with a dash of suspense, she believes the best stories weave the raw beauty of real life with unbelievable adventures.

A proud resident of Kansas City, Missouri, Beth enjoys world travel, genealogy, and sitting around the dinner table for hours, talking about both. The best souvenir she ever brought home was a husband from Sweden. Like any good writer, she has a love affair with chocolate and coffee, but it’s a lifeblood connection with Jesus Christ that keeps the words flowing and heart beating. At the tender age of fourteen, on a tile floor in Costa Rica, she surrendered all to the one she calls Lord. Through life’s twists and turns she’s thankful for this steadfast foundation every day!

    Love these memes and also Happy Birthday! I especially love the one about browsing history. If anyone ever saw all the photos of gorgeous men on my computer they’d wonder- a lot! The quirk I love is when, in the middle of a conversation, an author puts words into the atmosphere out of now where and then has to back track with explanation about how it was all relevant.

      Lol! Writers can be so awkward…but if everyone else could only see it makes perfect sense in our minds. Of course, if anyone else could see a writer’s mind, they’d run in shock and fear!

    Happy birthday!
    Also, yes, yes, yes to these memes!
    Especially the one about “not talking to myself”. That is HOW I write dialogue. I also make the facial expressions (of both people) which can be pretty awkward if I’m writing in a public place.

    It usually goes like this:
    Orders a chai latte at Starbucks. Suddenly looks very offended. Then ashamed. Then apologetic. If the barista hasn’t already run away, they hand me my drink. And I leave, with shock on my face. Then I chuckle to myself. Insanity? Nope. Just writing 🙂

      Thank you!
      And yes, haha! It’d be so embarrassing if I had a mirror to see all the faces I must make when I’m “writing” in my head.

    I’m guilty of talking out loud to hear my dialogue. I laughed when I read Austin’s comment about the faces because I often make facial expressions and gestures when I’m writing to capture it. I often wonder what people would think if they were watching me. 🙂
