All of this week’s questions have to do with writing (hence, the title of this post: A Writer’s Meme)
Here are your questions (and my answers).
What’s your favorite genre of writing?
I love to write historic fiction. Seriously, I cannot imagine writing anything else. Not that I've tried, though.
How often do you get writer’s block?
Right about the middle of my wip. I start out with a whole lot excitement in the start...know where I want to go and how it will end...but it is in the middle that I struggle to keep up the pace with.
By temporarily going a little nutty...and watching my favorite movies. After a good freak-out and a pep talk from my husband, I get back to work.
How do you fix it?
I write character sketches by hand and brainstorm with pen and paper, but everything else is strictly written on my Mac laptop in Scrivener. Oh, how I love Scrivener.
Do you type or write by hand?
Do you save everything you write?No, I do not. That's why my husband so wonderfully forces me to hook the computer up to a time machine and back everything up. He knows how foolish I am.
Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it?Of course!
My Grandma, actually. She cannot do anything without a book within reach, so I figure that if she likes what I write...then I'm golden. ;) But I do have critique partners that are not family. None of them compare to my Grandma.
Do you have a constructive critic?
Did you ever write a novel?Five of them. One is with an agent with publishers mulling over it. Here's hoping is survives!
What genre would you love to write but haven’t?
