I'm participating in GUTGAA, and today we're posting our meet and greets! So here's the short Q&A for me:
Where do you write?
At my desk at home.
Go to your writing space, sit down, and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?
A blank, white wall. I look down and see my printer.
What genre do you write?
What's your favorite time to write?
Whenever I get the chance. If I'm on a good sleeping schedule I'm more productive in the mornings, and write a little at night to keep my book in mind while I sleep. I find lots of problems work themselves out and I wake up with the answers.
Drink of choice while writing?
Water. I hardly drink anything else, writing or not.
When writing, do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?
Silence. Sometimes my children and husband are playing so loudly I retreat to the basement.
What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
Stories just pop in my head without any clear source on inspiration. Sorry if that's uninteresting.
What's your most valuable writing tip?
Keep learning. Whether you're watching online lectures, reading books on writing and editing, going to conferences, or just reading writer's blogs, keep learning. While practice makes perfect, these tools will tell you what to practice, and jump you forward.
Hello fellow GUTGAA participants! And to my normal readers, I'm going to change the pace for my blog (again). See the new schedule in the sidebar. See you tomorrow!
