What’s your preferred writing method, pen/laptop/typewriter?
Usually I like writing with a pen, but recently I’ve gotten away from that due to time constraints and I basically spend all my time on the laptop anyway, so almost all of my writing has been on the laptop this year. However, I’m trying to save my eyes and for my monthly word count challenges (which I don’t think I’ll be meeting this month…) I will be writing in notebooks again. I can’t wait.
Preferred genre to read/write?
Audio book, ebook, paperback, or all three?
Paperback! I do like having collections of books and being able to sit down with a book. But my new computer came with a Kindle app and for someone who always said she’d never get a Kindle, I’ve downloaded quite a few ebooks. But I still like physical books better.
What magical creature would you like to be, if you could?
Ooh, tough one. I really like griffins but heights and flying scare me, so I don’t think I’d be very good at that. Maybe a unicorn because I love horses and I could go around poking people.
Tea or coffee?
Neither. I don’t like hot tea and I rarely drink coffee. I try and stay away from caffeine so I drink a lot of water. I know. I’m a pretty boring writer.
Self publish or traditional?
Well, I’m traditionally published but I’m going to try out self publishing with my novella Adela’s Curse. I think both have their merits and it’s a good idea to keep all the options open. You really can’t go wrong with having a foot in both worlds.
The merits of taking a break once in a while?
Besides just getting to chill and not worry about anything? Wait. I don’t think there’s anything else better than that. 😛
Dream holiday destination, real or imagined?
Wales. I’ve wanted to go for a long time. I actually really want to backpack the U.K. and hike along Hadrian’s Wall and then spend forever in Wales, wandering around, and writing all of the stories.
Just one? I’ll go with Brian Jaques this time. I love his Redwall series. I read most every book about a hundred times (even if some of them were held together by rubber bands). I didn’t much care for the last few in the series, but I do know they really shaped my love of writing adventure.
Writer’s block? Fact or fiction?
I guess I technically don’t really call it writer’s block. It’s more my characters are being uncooperative or I just don’t want to write. So I don’t. I don’t try and make myself write either. I just wait until I know what’s going to happen or I’m in the mood. So fiction, I guess?
Thanks, Steph for tagging me! Check out her blog and definitely keep an eye out for her new book!
I know rules 3 and 4 state that I must tag and provide new questions, but…oh, y’all know. 😉
