-Where do you write? My living room couch more often than not. That way I can write while my little ones play.
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see? My son. Ok, really, I see my grandma's chair I got when she passed away in February.
-Favorite time to write? Evening when the kids are in bed. Or throughout the day if my kids aren't being too mischievous.
-Drink of choice while writing? Soda of some sort. Right now? Grape soda
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence? I love
Piano Guys on Pandora. I can rarely do ANYTHING in complete silence. It stresses me out!
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it? My writing group had a theme "The worst day ever" for a writing exercise. I thought it would be fun to twist it and have a girl who has always been lucky get her luck stolen. I had so much fun with it and such good feedback from my group as a short story, I decided to expand it. It's been a lot of fun watching it come to life.
-What's your most valuable writing tip? Keep going! There are times when you're frustrated because a book isn't going how you want, or you received some not-so-great feedback and you just want to give up. That's when you have to try harder. Remember why you love to write and keep on going!
So, what does your month of September look like? Anything you’re looking forward to (book releases? bloghops? conventions? Time for wip?) ??
Right now I'm just editing, editing, editing my book. I move to other projects as I wait to get critiques. I want to try and get my story out to a few places by the end of the month.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me!
